Riders hurt on El Toro roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ


JACKSON, N.J. (PIX11) — Multiple people were hurt while riding a roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey Thursday evening, officials said.

Several people reported back pain after riding the El Toro roller coaster, a Six Flags spokesperson confirmed. Five people were taken to a local medical facility to be evaluated after riding the roller coaster. El Toro has since been closed for inspection, the spokesperson said.

Additional details about how the people were hurt on the ride were not immediately available.

PIX11 News has reached out to New Jersey’s Department of Community Affairs, which has a Carnival-Amusement Ride Safety Unit.

There have been a number of incidents at the Six Flags location in recent years. In 2020, guests were briefly stuck on rides during a short power outage.

In 2021, a log flume malfunction sent two people to the hospital. The El Toro roller coaster along with Nitro and Joker were also briefly shut down over problems in 2021.
