Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

By this map, it looks like they've decided to use the Hurricane Harbor special entrance as the new Member's Only entrance. I hope so as it puts you right in line for Raging Bull.

 

Season passes as well. Looks like that entrance is for Hurricane Harbour only so you don't have to go through the park if you have a pass.

I'll be there! I'm looking forward to it. I don't think I've ever been there by 9am but I have been there at 10am when they opened at 11.

Wait, There's a Sprint store in Six Flags Great America?

It's only a matter of time before a quick loans/check cashing place opens up. After that it will be a convenience store that wreaks of cigarette smoke, while offering single cigarettes half pints of cheap liquor for sale. I wonder if there will be any demand for a used tire shop near the parking lot.

 

Are we taking bets on the number of gang fights, mob actions, and shootings that will happen in the park this year? I'm throwing my money down on 2 that make the media and 17 that go unreported.

 

Time to lower the prices of season passes further and offer low monthly payments so that sh*tty parents can drop their kids off at the park and use it as a babysitter. This seems to hold true throughout the chain. You couldn't pay me enough to work security at one of the SF parks.

Mini TR of Sunday during Opening Weekend:

 

Great time for spending only 3 hours at the park;

Goliath x6

American Eagle x2

Raging Bull x5

Viper x1

Hometown Fun Machine x1

 

It was really great to get back to the park after so many visits to Dollywood and then a Spring Break Florida Trip during the off-season. Though after riding Mako 19 times just under a month ago, Raging Bull really feels like a lower tier ride for me. Still, Goliath provides some great thrills but still compared to my two favorites, Lightning Rod and Storm Chaser, it falls short quite a bit. Overall though crowds weren't too bad but food stalls were packed. Otherwise great trip and can't wait to make it back before my prom next weekend!

Was there today as well. Crowds were surprisingly light for opening weekend, almost weekday in May light. Weather was decent too, mid-fifties and sunshine. Hangover looks absolutely massive in its location, I personally am really excited to ride. It may not be the ride many people were hoping for, but its a fun, classic thrill ride that will probably be even better than the rest given its size. Managed 1 ride each on Raging Bull, Giant Drop, Demon, The Lobster, Viper, Chubasco, American Eagle, Batman, V2, Joker, Superman, and X-Flight.

 

Looking forward to a great season

I was there yesterday as well and like Saturday had a very good visit. Only coasters I didn't ride either day were Eagle and Whizzer. With that my next visit to the park will be in May for Mardi Gras Hangovers season pass day if there is one.

Such a vivid picture you painted there.

Here's my first ever Mini Trip Report -

 

First noticed the Member Entrance is to the left of the flag poles. It's a dedicated group of metal detectors then opens to the ticket reader/finger scan entrances with half dividers. Whizzer was not running for opening weekend. There is a nice display ad set up near Sky Trek for this year's first Holiday in the Park event. X-Flight was running one train as was American Eagle. Goliath and Raging Bull were running as awesome as ever and using two trains. Superman Ultimate flight was up with two trains and was practically a walk on toward the end of the day Saturday. Mardi Gras Hangover actually does look quite massive. Looks like it would be worth a spin.

 

The crowds weren't bad, lines for rides were manageable even with one train operations. The lines seemed to be all at the food places. Capone's kicked out stragglers that came in after 7pm on Saturday. Big Lou's has a sign pointing to Italian Beef, but I didn't see where it was or it was closed on Saturday and Sunday.

 

My pics aren't the best but here's a few from the trip.

This doesn't look that much bigger than any of the other Larsen loopers.

 

I thought the same thing at first but when you actually see it, it does look larger than the loops at the other parks. I tried to get a shot of the ride vehicle on the track to put it into perspective but my group was running off to catch another flight on Superman without me so the shot didn't come out the way I wanted it to.
