Join us May 8, 2019, for Autism Day at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey.

Custom Education Foundation, Gersh Academy, and their partners are once again transforming the park into a sensory-friendly environment where individuals on the autism spectrum, their educators, friends, and families can enjoy the day together free of worry.

Most individuals on the autism spectrum struggle with processing sensory information, becoming overloaded by touch, taste, sight and sound. It can make it extremely difficult for families with children on the spectrum to visit places like amusement parks. It is our mission at Custom Ed to remove those obstacles and enable all children to enjoy a day at the park! No amusement park of the magnitude of Six Flags has ever been transformed into a sensory-friendly environment, we are honored to be the first ones to make this happen for our children!
