For roller coaster enthusiasts, New Jersey is a destination like no other. And the chief attraction is El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, a massive park full of massive rides that all look tiny compared to the intensely vertical wooden centerpiece.

True to its name, the coaster, which reaches speeds of up to 70 miles per hour, feels like a ride on a bucking bull as the hills come in quick succession.
