Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm heading to the park next Monday. Will put a trip report together.

 

So here's a few questions:

 

1. How crowded is it on Mondays and Tuesdays?

2. I'm arriving early so I can catch Goliath and X-Flight first. Anything else I should catch next?

3. Recommend restaurant? (I have gold dining plan)

4. Any rides I worth skipping?

5. How long does JLBFM line get commonly?

 

I look forward to visiting!

1. I don't think it will be too crowded. Monday's are usually the best days to go.

2. Justice League & Superman.

3. Johnny Rockets, Angelo's Pasta and Pizza, Mooserburger Lodge & Strutters. These are all shutdown restaurants.

4. I don't think so. Ride as many rides as you can.

5. At least 3 hours. There have been times where they had to close the line down for a few minutes because of how long it was.

Look out for line jumping because for some reason this park has really bad line jumping. One last thing, be sure to ride both log flumes.

I hope you have a good time.

I must go to the park on the wrong days then, because I always see JLBFM down. I hit Great America almost once a week. Almost every visit, I see JLBFM down at some point. I've only been on it twice. The second time, only the first two screens were working. Every other screen was frozen or blank.

I'm sure it goes down at times, with the amount of technology it uses, and I have heard of certain effects not working at times (i.e. the fire), but I have not really seen it down at all this season on days I have been there, and I have not heard of extended downtime like plagued SFStl's iteration last year. We got on this one on our first attempt this season, while it took 3 tries to finally get on it at SFStl last season.

Normally I wouldn't expect the park to be too crowded on those days, but because next week is a bring a friend for half price it will be a litter busier. Have you considered buying the flash pass? If not you might want to look into that.

According to a rumor on SFGAmWorld.com, tomorrow might be the final operating day for Orbit (After 40 years) and possibly Jester's Wild ride to allow for 2017 additions. East River Crawler would be moved to Orbit's location if this happened.

 

Do you guys know anything about this?

All rumor at this point, though I have seen a source claiming the ride op on Orbit claimed tonight is its last night of operation for good, though another said tomorrow is its last day of operation for good. I am surprised the park would not give more notice about this, to "get in your last rides," even if it is just a flat ride. It is one of the park's original rides.

 

Opening up the space where Jester's and East River Crawler are located would be interesting, and of course the former Rajun Cajun plot is just across the midway from those spots. If it ends up being true, guessing it has something to do with 2017.

I hope it would at least be tomorrow. I'd be really upset if it closed tonight and we didn't get notified.

 

I am kind of skeptical, when ride operators are the alleged source of this info, with nothing from the park itself.

I know your joking, but I clearly said the Orbit employees. Obviously they'd be told that they're not working on the that ride again. A bunch of people have also heard this from ride employees today, so maybe you should consider this before make a rude remark

Went to the park today for the first time. Have to say that this is probably the nicest Six Flags park that I've been to so far. From the cleanliness to the theming and some fantastic rides, it was a lot of fun.
