  1. I heard that the park took a killing last year on Fridays in September. The park was DEAD
  2. dodnt forget, not only this weekend, but I think next weekend, is bring a friend free days. and the Jets play at home on sunday.
  3. NJ state has very tough regulations now. One of the most regulated states in the country.
  4. Let's see now if they can get this opened for opening day 2015. Hope we don't have to wait till July 4th again.
  5. LOL Yeah looking at where RT's final turn was (re: Ryan's post) on Google maps, it's pretty obvious where this is going and how it'll be connected to where the Golden Kingdom already is. I'm putting a lot of money on them not fixing any infrastructure problems this year, AGAIN. I sincerely doubt they're building a new path from there to Plaza Del Carnival, alongside the old one, keeping the old one abandoned. It would have to be pretty long, that doesn't make any sense. They're not in the habit of fixing things at this park. Until I see proof, I'll assume this will just be one more attraction serviced by that dreadful bottle neck near the top spin. im pretty sure they wont be fixing infrastructure problems, especially when you can get a gold SP for $61.99.
  6. I was at the park this morning for a couple hrs. The Nitro crew sucked. Stacking 3 trains the whole time I was in line.
  7. Looks like a disappointing year for 2015. And aren't they hosting ACE"s coaster con? I would have thought they would have went with something bigger then Namtab and a super loop. The last good addition to the park was 2006(El Toro).
  8. Zumanjaro CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE right from the website https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure/zumanjaro/overview not even opened for 2 months. heard its been closed for the past 3 days
  9. That's exactly why it is a mistake. GAdv assumed NJ would allow them to run both rides simultaneously. They should have done their homework some more, before rushing to slap the ride onto KK and then fighting with the state to get it open. No its because NJ told them at the last second they couldn't do it. Its really silly since LLDD and Giant Drop operate just fine with no loose article incident, we also have Top Thrill Dragster with the midway right behind the tower, the que in the middle, and the midway going next to the launch area with again no incident. Its just NJ politics being corrupt as usually. What do you expect from NJ and its Liberal excessive regulations. That's what NJ voters, vote for, over regulated and high taxes.
  10. I have seen a few posts on another forum saying they have been having power problems for zumanjaro. I hope it stays closed the rest of the year and Ka can get back to normal capacity.
  11. SFGadv hates Vets and Guns because its not family friendly, but they like grenades, that is family friendly. here is a photo from a friend of mine he took at the park today.
  12. In april and may, on all my visits to the park when it was empty, they were running both sides on the skyway. I haven't seen both sides going since then.
  13. If the park is building a new roller coaster, survey marks would be popping up and the forums would be all over it. I haven't heard anything about those. I see a coaster coming at Rolling Thunder's spot, but not next year. Maybe they are not going to start doing survey markers until Aug 28th. Whats the big rush anyways. As long as the ride is open by the 4th of July
  14. Did you read what he was wearing? I don't see that as appropriate for a public place either. Yes, I saw what he was wearing, it was a t-shirt. But it ok for women to have there ass and tits hanging out, plus all the vulgar language you hear around the park. that's so much more family friendly.
  15. way to treat veterans, SFGAdv http://www.nj.com/ocean/index.ssf/2014/08/nj_veteran_says_six_flags_denied_him_admission_over_shirt_supporting_marines.html#incart_m-rpt-1 N.J. veteran says Six Flags denied him admission over shirt supporting Marines Mario Alejandro Mario Alejandro wearing the shirt he said got him denied from entering Six Flags Great Adventure. (Courtesy of Mario Alejandro) Rob Spahr | NJ.com By Rob Spahr | NJ.com Email the author | Follow on Twitter on August 14, 2014 at 3:25 PM, updated August 14, 2014 at 3:58 PM Mario Alejandro was ready for a fight when he was part of the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003 as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps. Where he did not expect a fight was at Six Flags Great Adventure while taking his children there for a birthday party. But due to the shirt that his family bought him for Father’s Day, a fight is exactly what the 33-year-old veteran from Woodbridge says he encountered while attempting to enter the theme park on Saturday. Alejandro, who is a father of three and a former coach of the Cardinal McCarrick High School football team, served four years as a member of the Marine infantry. He was part of the initial invasion into Iraq in 2003 and said he is classified as disabled, due to the hearing loss and post-traumatic stress disorder he sustained from his military service. In June, Alejandro’s family gave him several shirts they had purchased from the The Reconnaissance Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps to support Recon Marines and their families, as a Father’s Day gift for him. “I thought it was great, I loved it. The shirts fit my personality perfectly. They’re military and they’re patriotic. That’s my thing,” he said. “I wore them to all over the place, to my kids’ baseball games – everywhere. And I got nothing but compliments about how great they were. No one ever said they were offensive, because it’s obvious that they’re in support of the military and the United States.” But Alejandro said this changed on Saturday when the black shirt he was wearing - with a red, white and blue machine gun and the words "Keep Calm and Return Fire" on the front and the logo and website for The Reconnaissance Foundation on the back - caught the attention of a security guard at the front gate. Mario Alejandro Photo of the back of the shirt, which was purchased from the Reconnaissance Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps to support Recon Marines and their families. Courtesy of Mario Alejandro “I was walking in through the gate with my wife and kids, who were in front of me, when a security guard grabbed me and said: ‘I can’t let you into the park with that shirt on. That shirt’s offensive,’” Alejandro said on Tuesday. “I said that it’s not offensive, it’s a military shirt. I told him that I am an Iraq veteran… I served in the war. But he said: ‘I don’t care, you have to take that off… or you need to buy another shirt to put over it.’” Alejandro said that when he refused to take the shirt off or buy a new shirt to cover it, the security guard told him to wait there while he checked with their supervisor. “I saw him talk to two women in white shirts, who looked at me and then shook their heads. And then the man grabbed my arm and asked me to leave,” he said. “I told them that’s it’s not offensive, that it’s a military shirt and that it means something. But they said: ‘I don’t care, get out of the park." Alejandro said he complied with the request, but only after announcing to hundreds of other people who were entering the park that he was a veteran and what was happening to him. "My wife and my son were crying, because they didn't understand why this was happening," he said. "I just told my son to remember this day. To remember how they treat veterans." Kristin B. Siebeneicher, a spokeswoman for Six Flags Great Adventure, said via email on Thursday that the incident was "under review." "Our goal is to maintain a fun, safe and family-friendly environment. Our dress code does not permit clothing with vulgar, offensive or violent language or images," she wrote. "If a guest is wearing such attire, we ask them to remove and replace it with another item of clothing; and if they do not have one, they are able to purchase a replacement item at a gift shop." Siebeneicher added that Six Flags is extremely proud of its longstanding relationship with the U.S. military. "We work closely with them throughout the season to offer special events that honor our service men and women and their families, including a recent July 4th tribute, and an upcoming 'Salute the Troops' event over the Labor Day weekend," she said. "In addition, active members of the Army, Navy and Air Force helped open our new thrill ride this summer." But Alejandro said no veteran should ever be treated he way he was on Saturday. "At the very least should revise their policy," he said. "I fought for this country. I laid in a hole for 36 hours with no sleep, and had friends die for this country and so the people here could have the freedom to things like visit amusement parks. So when they told me that I couldn't come in there with my family because of my shirt - a patriotic shirt - it hurt a lot. No other veteran should ever have to experience that."
  16. Totally agree. Id like SFGadv to re theme the old country section and add a bunch of flat rides like the boardwalks have, and go crazy with lighting packages using LED lights. Also would like the park to add a good show to the park. Right now the park has nothing but crap.
  17. Well whatever it ends up being, are we looking at another July 4th opening?
  18. It's a spinning roller coaster that is indoors and themed to a glow in the dark fun house. Does that mean wild mouse in the dark with the spinning cars?
  19. SFGAdv has plenty of areas already existing within the park (Old Country, for example) that need to be rehabbed before they even think about expanding any further. Besides, the park is already so expensive as it is. I think that any rumors about future part expansion like this evolve strictly out of wishful thinking. Totally agree. Do something with the existing areas of the park that are closed(old country) or decrepit lake area(great lake grandstand). No way SFGadv expands anymore by ka/zumanjaro anytime soon. They should re-open the path from el toro to the golden kingdom
  20. nice trip report, I have been saying the same thing regarding the season pass holder early entry. why do they not have a separate line for season pass holder to line up. I have even mentioned it to the am security, and they say they have been asking for that, but the park doesnt want to do that. every time I visit, you have to pass all the general admission guests, and they think you are cutting them. Its suck a cluster F*CK. What time did Zumanjaro finally open at? Sucks to hear about what went on with Nitro. I have noticed this season that the ride ops/attendants are sending out tons of empty seats/rows on all coasters throughtout the park.
