El Toro opened to the public in 2006. The roller coaster has a drop of 176 feet, pushing cars up to a speed of 70 miles per hour. The ride lasts two minutes and five seconds. In 2021, the park was fined $5,000 after it had a partial derailment and the park failed to tell the state Department of Community Affairs about the incident. No one was on the ride at the time.
The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs has ordered the El Toro roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in Ocean County shut down until further notice after 14 people were hurt on the amusement ride.
