💲 It can cost more to park at Six Flags Great Adventure than Disney World

💲 Buying tickets online can also help with parking costs

Between tolls, gas and food, it can be an expensive proposition to travel to New Jersey fun spots. But depending on your destination, you can catch a break on parking.

Parking is free at some destinations like the Cape May County Zoo, Liberty State Park, the Popcorn Park Animal Refuge and the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange. If tickets are purchased online parking is free at the Island Waterpark at the Showboat in Atlantic City.

A 30-minute visit to the American Dream shopping and entertainment complex in the Meadowlands is also free. (They start charging if you stay longer).

Parking at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson can be free if you have a season pass.

For a single visit, parking can run $45 to $60 for priority parking closer to the main gate.

By comparison, it costs $30 per day to park at a Disney World theme park. Cityparking, which operates the lots around Yankee Stadium, charged $47 for self-parking in its four lots around the stadium.

Volta charging stations are new to both Hurricane Harbor and the theme park. They are in the preferred parking section by the main park entrances.
