Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

There's nothing really to dislike about El Toro.

 

I dislike the two sharp, distinct bumps it's developed on the way back from the first turn around. Not that I'm against a little roughness in a wooden coaster of course, I just remember the days when it was freakishly, eerily smooth. They have come and gone.

 

Oh, and I concur in hoping that Six Flags does something to conceal El Toro's finale instead of doing something dumb like putting a path right next to it. But I'll keep my hopes low, since this is SF after all. I'll be happy if the area doesn't remain an empty dirt field.

Honestly, I think that watching the finale from a walkway will look like fun (just like it looked from the Rolling Thunder Station). When your actually on it you realize how fast it really hauls through that section.

 

I do hope we can walk under El Toro where RT once flew under... would make a nice cut through and fix the lack of access to Kingda Ka...

^Except that it's not in Virginia.

 

Fixed.

 

Comments like these help me realize that I'm really, really fortunate that I have this coaster practically in my backyard.

 

Oh El Toro, I'll never take you for granted...

How about Florida? LOL Our Sunshine State needs El Toro!

 

We do need one in Florida. I have to drive 16+ hours if I want to go ride El Toro. I can't see any parks in FL getting an Intamin woodie though. I would only have hope for BG to get one but after all the trouble with Gwazi I don't think we will be seeing another woodie...

Could be worse. I need to have a 2 hour drive + a 7 hour flight + one hour (at least) drive to ride el toro. And guess what, on either of my tow trips to Great Adventure (which come really expensive) I didn't get to ride it: the first time it was so crowded that I din't have time and in the second one it was closed. Yay!

Reno. How about our area even gets ONE coaster within a 3 hour radius. Even a kiddie coaster is 2 hours away!

Hey,

 

Has anyone seen any construction going on with the Tower of Kingda Ka? I know its hard to see since the park is closed, but maybe something from the Parking lot by the Pond?

 

Im too far away to drive down just to look, but would love to know if anything is going on! (where's Flyin Phil when you need him!)

So there's a pretty good chunk of land available now that Rolling Thunder is gone. Do we know what's going to replace it yet or is it all speculation right now? I'd imagine it would have to be replaced with a higher capacity ride to make up for the loss in capacity.

 

Edit: Just realized I only ride one side of Rolling Thunder, woops, missed a credit there.

^ A walkway to the backside of Kinda Ka for Zumanjaro. So far, that's all they had released as 'plans' alongside expanding that area. I'm sure in a few years they will need to bulldoze more trees since they changed their mind again on what they want to do

Knowing Great Adventure, it's very likely that they won't replace it with anything (other than the walkway to the drop tower and animal exhibits). They didn't replace Old Country with anything, they just kind of closed it off.

 

If anything I think the park will end up with a Wingrider, only because it's one of the only coaster types they don't have... there have been some Screamscape rumors about it over the last few years too which add a tiny bit of merit to that way of thinking.

Out of all of the decisions that have been made at this park over the years, this is by far the most disappointing for me. There is a ton of potential over there. Heck, even if they just opened it up just so there is another route to get over to MovieTown that would be great. I really liked the feel of the area walking through there. It was like old Great Adventure, and now it is all closed off. It is really disappointing.
