  1. For the stats, I told the park via Twitter to change them. It's maybe because of me ! As for the storyline, I think it's not THAT bad, but it could have been better. It's kind of elaborate, but didn't go as viral as they wanted it to be.
  2. I know this is a bit of thread bumping, but they just announced the name of the ride. It will be called Ednör. The ride statistics are a bit off, but it's like they want people to see it as a real sea monter. Just look at the physical dimensions and you'll get a good laugh ! See the link here !
  3. Really interesting graphs. It's amazing to see how on some rides you can go from negative to positive g's so fast. If only every school could do this in physics classes !
  4. Knowing it's Six Flags, I'm guessing they probably either keep the Serial Thriller name or go with another "cut and paste" name. Serial Thriller would translate in an awkward way... I think they should give it a name after a god or something. An appropriate name would be a medieval or celtic name since the ride is located in the medieval section of the park. It might as well be a kind of sea monster. I'm just doing too much speculation. Let's wait and what they'll be coming up with !
  5. I think that the choice of putting an old ride to a new park is great, but it seems weird to have a B&M invert and an SLC at the same park. Maybe they can pull off something great with the "over the water" thing, but I'm still unsure of what the result could look like. I guess we'll have to wait and see ! Also, I wonder what the name will be !
  6. I don't know if I could handle that, but it looks like something I'd like to try once in a lifetime.
  7. I love Goliath at La Ronde, but I want a coaster of at least over 200ft tall in Canada and I believe that CW will have it. I think that an Intamin hypercoaster would make sense and be good for the quality of the coasters at the park.
  8. Nice video, I'm going there on Labor Day for the first time. I hope it will be better than what I see in that video I have no expectations at all, so that's good I guess !
  9. Next time I am near that area, I should do some activities in the adirondack region and hit Great Escape on my way back. We would have went to it, but when we passed by on I87, it was 6 pm and we had about 1:30-2:00 more to go before being home. I might go there on a weekend soon if I have nothing to do since it is not far. I wanted to know how SFGAdv compares to other US parks ? Is it one of the best parks in the US or one of the worst ? If it is the latter, I'm curious to know what makes it bad compared to other parks. Sure, I found the park really fun and everything was positive abo
  10. Kindga Ka was really awesome but, the funny thing is that when we got on the train, they moved us to the launch section and then the ride broke ... So we came back to the station and waited about 5-10 minutes more for the mechanics to repair the ride. Our OTSR were still locked and it seemed like a minor problem. Within a couple of minutes, the moved us again to the launch track and our ride started. I still remember the feeling of the acceleration. In my POV, everything around the ride became really blurry except the track itself and I could feel my skin being pushed back and tapping
  11. 2. Six Flags Great Adventure On wednesday we went to SFGAdv and we had a lot of fun ! When we arrived, we bought a parking ticket and parked in the huge parking lot the park has. The view was amazing with (from left to right or where we were) : KK, El Toro, Superman, GASM and Nitro. I am used to La Ronde, so I was a pretty impressed at how the park looks compared to La Ronde. The ambiance was very nice with music and dancing loney tunes characters + dancers and everything before we even entered the park. I just won't forget the ambiance the park has, it was just really amazing. We we
  12. Hey everybody ! On tuesday I decided to finaly travel to the US with my girlfriend. I borrowed my parents car and I was determined to go to SFGadv, which I did, and LOVED it ! It was my first time in the US and I wanted to go visit some US amusement park for a pretty long while (since I was about 13, and now I'm 20). I only visited SFGAdv due to lack of time since I had to be back here on friday for work. I will post pics of my trip in parts that will go like 1. A little past the border and Adirondack region + my first Taco Bell experience 2. Six Flags Great Adventure 3. On the way bac
  13. I don't know if you want to try, but instead of wearing glasses, you could always try contact lenses. Not all people are confortable with them, but if you try some and you feel ok with them, why not wear that instead of glasses ? It would remove your fear from losing your glasses on a ride. I always wear contact lenses and I never had any problem on any rides (not even Kingda Ka or El Toro). It's just a suggestion, but if you haven't tried, you should give it a try !
  14. Well, I went yesterday and I had the brilliant idea to buy a flashpass and I rode EVERY COASTER with a maximum wait of 33 mins for Kingda Ka ! I'll be posting a photo TR very soon ! All I can say is that all the rides were alot of fun compared to what I'm used to ( La Ronde ...). KK and El Toro are definitely my favorites !
