Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Oh I agree completely. The theming makes no sense nor has the theming in that park ever made sense. I mean look at when they added Medusa. It was built in the Frontier section and had "Medusa Mining Company" signs all over the place to make it fit. Yet the ride was bright Green and Purple. Doesn't seem very frontier-like to me at all. It's an awesome ride though, and that's all I've ever really cared about when going to GADV.

 

Plus I actually find the park's theming kinda funny. It appeals to my ADD .

I agree. I love the thought process, "What could be further from Western than Greek Mythology? Oh I know! Screwed up purple Superman that failed English class!" I do appreciate the mix of the well-themed (Plaza del Carnaval, Golden Kingdom), and the random (everything else). But yeah, obviously the main reason I go is for the amazing coaster collection.

 

Your Bizzaro joke was perfect!

Bro, Jersey legalized pot not crack. Put it down.

I don’t know who needs to hear this but stop doing this: so you can make people stand in this twice as long in the name of social distancing. Just load every seat.

OH. MY. GOD. A SPIRAL MAINTENANCE STAIRCASE!!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO WALK DOWN IT!!!!

^Somebody who doesn't know the existance of theming, ride rehabs, empty concrete slabs, taking care of whats already there, water rides, flat rides, ride distribution, having the entitre park open, a reduced ad environment, non-superhero themed rides, non SBNO rides, etc.

This post wins.

Hmm...

isn't it a bit odd that they paint it green when it is standing right next to Kingda Ka?

I know it's called "Green Lantern" but maybe they could come up with something creative, and maybe not use a superhero theme?!?!

^ Batman & Nitro are both yellow and next to each other that didn't stop them, and GL has a darker shade of green then KK. have you been or even seen pictures of Cedar Point they painted Iron Dragon the same colors of TTD and they are right next to each other. Plus do you think they are going to color a coaster themed to Green Lantern and thing other then green ( I understand they are making the corkscrews yellow) .

Still kind of odd IMO.

But yeah that's SF style....

 

And yeah theres another thing i don't understand, - why paint the corkscrews yellow?!

Because as par theme, you encounter PARALLAX one of Green Lanterns main enemies. The Facebook for the park also said the labels on the corkscrew during repaint labeled them "Parallax".

^^ Green Lantern is a DC Comic, not created by Six Flags. They just have special branding rights to incorporate DC's characters throughout their parks.

I know?

 

Okay cool, the way I interpreted your post made it seem like you didn't.

It's an amusement park, not a prom or the Academy Awards. 99.9% of visitors don't care if two coasters in close proximity are the same color.

 

The main color scheme of the Green Lantern character is what color? GREEN.

 

Kingda Ka is already green. I don't see SF, which is tightening their spending, repainting a 456 ft tall ride.

 

So if you are bothered by the two coasters being the same color, too bad. Deal with it.

 

Regarding Superman and Green Lantern in the Boardwalk area, again deal with it. I would much rather have these coasters that don't fit the boardwalk theme than a Flitzer and a powered coaster, popular rides in a boardwalk location. And why didn't SF theme the B&M stand-up to Aquaman to fit the Boardwalk. Well Aqauman doesn't have a have an upcoming movie release does he?

 

Yes, people are feel to express their opinion if they are upset. However, as enthusiasts is this really what you want to talk about? Really?

I honestly don't mind the similar paint. As long as you're not dumb enough to confuse the two, you'll be fine.

 

 

I'm LOVING how Green Lantern is coming out. That pic just posted reminds me of watching Riddler's Revenge going up. All of that green track is VERY intimidating...

When you were a single year old?

 

 

Silly me. Have to explain myself here...

 

 

I remember looking at a site, don't remember where, that had TONS of Riddler's Revenge construction pics. They were horrible quality, but look alot like the pics I'm seeing of Green Lantern's construction.

 

 

Perhaps I should try and find that site...

^It's basically a larger, mirrored version of Mantis with a better 2nd half.

 

Yup, Comfortable ground hugging turns and inversions > awkward, rough figure 8's every time. That's the reason I loved Chang and I don't love Mantis.
