Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread

If there's a chance we'll see the ride (or half of it) again somewhere, I'm all for it. But what is the likelihood?

 

Is this related to past rumors of its sale, or is it an entirely new development?

 

I was just browsing through Intermark and found it surprising that it was sold.

If it is a park that it was sold to it was probably international, and not very large. I'm thinking this because parks in this country would probably stray away from something with as much bad publicity as chiller.

 

A park is not going to care about negative publicity (unless a death was involved) but they could be scared away by the maintenance issues.

Six Flags Great Adventure Announces Massive, Cobra-Themed Water Slide for 2012

Eye-popping, racing slide marks first of its kind in U.S.

 

Jackson, NJ — February 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Six Flags Great Adventure, America’s largest regional theme park, today announced the addition of King Cobra, an intense and visually-stunning, racing tube slide, opening at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in Summer 2012.

 

King Cobra promises one of the most extreme riding experiences in the industry while also delivering great spectator appeal. Complete with bold orange, black and yellow scales to resemble a massive cobra on both the interior and exterior, this slide tower will be the first of its kind anywhere in the United States. King Cobra’s unique configuration enables two tubes to race through a circular path with twists, turns and surprises through enclosed and open sections of the slide at speeds up to 32 miles per hour. The ride’s finale features a sudden, 25-foot plunge at a 50-degree angle with riders racing until the heart-pounding finish as they appear to be swallowed by the massive mouth of the cobra.

 

King Cobra is manufactured by Polin, a world leader in the aquatic industry with its innovative design, manufacturing and installation of water parks in 80 countries around the globe. King Cobra marks Polin’s first major U.S. installation in the company’s 35-year history.

 

“We are thrilled to work with Polin on this landmark project, and are confident that King Cobra’s intense ride experience and unparalleled design will make it our most popular and entertaining attraction,” said Park President John Fitzgerald.

 

King Cobra is scheduled to open this summer in lieu of the Dive Bomber drop capsule. For more information, visit http://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure.

This looks like a Great addition for the complex in addition to the SkyScreamer and flats, 2012 is a great year! It looks like this thing has airtime too

 

This is just what Great Adventure needed in my mind. They already have world class coasters, so it seems like they are building back up their flats collection. This park has come a long way since the early 2000's.
