Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

haha too true. I also heard as part of one of their survey posts about them attaching a water park to the park. Which doesn't make too much sense to me since Hurricane Harbor is just there. Of course, it is separate admission, which I don't like. I feel like it doesn't get that much attention with that huge amusement park right next to it. Theres no way to connect them together, since they're too far apart.

Bummed as I think its going to make the tower look cluttered, I liked the minimalism of it. Opening day just three weeks away, getting way stoked.

Run a tram between the two, up the price of admission and include the waterpark should you choose to take the shuttle over there?

Just because the y could do it doesn't mean they should. If both parks are successful, why combine them?

 

Disney and universal all have two (or more) amusement parks right next to each other but no one is calling them to be combined into one mega park, so why should GAdv combine them?

I don't think we will see them add hurricane harbor into the main park. It's just too far away and would end up taking away the extra income the ticket sales come from entering that park. Before you all jump on the "the safari was a ticket as well!" Band wagon, I think it's important to remember that attendance to the safari was falling since people were sick of their cars being walked on by baboons! Even if the park expands behind Kingda Ka (and I think it will) I don't see them connecting to HH...

The last time I did the drive-through safari the monkeys were kept away from your car in an enclosure. Huge disappointment, that was one of the best things about it.

Speaking of SORA, I've never driven through the safari or SORA. I've heard it is almost infamous for nearly 3 hour lines. Why is it so popular, and so much more so than the safari was? Did the transformation make it so much better, along with the trucks, that it is sometimes more popular than every coaster? I don't have much knowledge of what was done in 2013 to SORA, and I'm curious.

I would guess that people always used to just drive past the safari and hurry on to the park, rather than stay in their car for another hour after already driving a long way to get there. Now that it's just like another ride, people are like, "Ooh! A line to stand in! Let's go get in it!" Even though before, you could stay in your nice air-conditioned car the whole time, and now you get to bake in the sun in line, and then bake in the sun some more on the ride. Moral of the story: People are dumb.

It's a good family ride and very low capacity. When you could drive your car it had almost unlimited capacity. Now with the ride taking up to an hour, and 18 trucks seating 35 riders that's only 630 riders an hour with no empty seats.

Is that big support they added on the left seriously not going to have another support just like it on the right? It looks awful. Couple that with the safety cone-colored rails, and you have quite possibly the world's ugliest retrofit.

^You seem to bash this park at every possible opportunity. There actually is the same support structure on the opposite side if you look closely and the track itself is orange to differentiate between Ka and Zumanjaro. It'll attract more riders this way and compliments the teal and green very well in my opinion.
