Would you ever go to an amusement park in the winter? What if I told you it's supposedly one of the best in the country to visit that time of year?

When I think of amusement parks, I think back to long hot summer days waiting in long queues to hop on my favorite coaster.

It seems like it would be strange or alien to visit an amusement park in the wintertime, but I guess people do!

I couldn't imagine being cold on the ground, and then hurled one hundred feet in the air on a rollercoaster, that may be too much for me.

Recently though, Thrillest released a list of the top amusement parks in the country to visit in the winter, and one from New Jersey made the list!

What I think is kind of funny is that every other amusement park on the list is in California, Florida, or Virginia.

You know, places that tend to be warm year-round, even in the winter.

The big one was of course Disney Land in California and Disney World in Florida.

Kings Dominion in Virginia got a nod and so did Dollywood in Tennessee, the theme park pays homage to the music legend Dolly Parton with tons of great rides.

What New Jersey Amusement Park Do Experts Say Is A Must-Visit In The Winter?

Well for starters, it's one of the more popular amusement parks in the state of New Jersey, and what's even better is that it's right here in Ocean County.

It's a park that has a ton of great holiday-themed lights, and shows, plus fire pits to warm yourself up and a North Pole Village where you can do some holiday shopping.

It's also said that riding Batman, or Nitro in sub-zero temperatures is an experience!

Congrats to Six Flags in Jackson Township for making Thrillist's list of the best amusement parks to visit this winter!

Personally, I'll head up to iPlay America where I can get my thrills indoors in the winter, but if you're looking for a cool experience, pun intended, six flags in the winter may be for you!
