Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread

^ Exactly. I'm really upset. I'll be in Virginia when it opens. I'm coming back the 12th. I was really looking forward to riding it. Why doesn't the state just approve it already? Everything is ready so it's all on the state now.

 

its simple. some corrupt politician is waiting for his bribe $$$$$$$$$$ to get the permit approved and SF didn't want to pay. NJ is such a corrupt state

You seem to be quite knowledgeable, even if your grammar is horrible. Can you find out the politician's name for us?

User by the name of Kaiser at gadv.com just posted this about today.

"Media day was postponed, along with the opening. The inspector was supposed to come at midnight, but never showed. Because of that, they couldn't let anyone on the ride.

The Lt. Governor then ordered the inspector to come by noon (the time the media event was supposed to start), and again he didn't show then. The event was canceled a little after 10am, though.

 

We'll see what happens in terms of rescheduling."

 

I also heard the inspector was originally supposed to come on Sunday too. I think it's time us coaster enthusiasts form an angry mob and find this inspector.

Crappy day out! Not sure if i would have went today for opening.Still feel bad for alot of people who are not into coasters like we, but are going to GA this week to ride KA and Zumanjaro and they will be closed. I sort of laugh when people go there and they are pissed that stuff is closed. I cant remember but cant you go on the website and see whats open? Or least pick up the phone and give them a call and find out.

Alright trip date has been pushed forward to the end of July either on a Thursday or Friday. I'm still worried about crowds but I'm assuming they will be pretty manageable during the height of the hot season.

 

How have the lines for the safari been so far this year? That is a priority but if I have to sacrifice rides on Ka and Toro to ride it, I'll skip it.

 

I'm also worried about water ride lines. Is capacity pretty good with those?

Have you ever tried calling the park? They put you on hold a good half hour every time. Early this season I had to call the season pass office at the start of the season to ask a question, got the voicemail and left a message. I got a call back a good month and a half later. Now that's awesome customer service.

I second this. Calling the park is a complete waste of time.

The line for congo rapids could look long but from the entrance im always on within 20 minutes. Log Flume on the other hand could get a 3 hour wait on a busy day. same with the safari. i recommend doing Zumanjaro Drop of Doom first then Kingda Ka then safari. it really is a fun ride.

Yea that log flume line can get long! I cant remember did they close that second log flume near nitro and congo? i havent looked in a while.

 

Yeah they closed the other log flume. I assume it was a cost cutting measure. Luckily the one that's still there is easily the better of the two and is one of the few rides left that actually opened with the park. The lines can get a little long, though I've never seen it longer than an hour.

 

Personally I think it's worth the wait.

MAN after scrolling through the Great adventure History page im thinking that i really do miss that Chiller alot. I really wish they could have kept that coaster instead of that horrible dark knight coaster. Plus Movie town would still be a some what of a happening place. Looks like i have to travel to get on Freeze to live that experience again!

Why are you making it sound like the ride will be gone when you get back. Is being one of the first riders really that important?

 

Lots of whining all around in this thread. Whether or not its the states fault for the delay is irrelevant. It is what it is. It'll open when its ready to open.

I'm not. I'd rather wait an hour if that for it rather than more than three. I'm sure you'd feel the same way. It's not about the first rides. I don't have the money for a flash pass and I would rather wait in as little of a wait as possible. No whining. I'm just upset. That's all

The water rides do have a high capacity. A conveyor belt style loading system was added to Congo Rapids this season where the boats never stop moving basically. It works well the line never gets above like 20 minutes as already said. The Log Flume with a full quene line is about a 45 to one hour wait. It definitely gets more crowded than Congo Rapids but it still has good capacity.

 

And here's a video of Ka running with people while Zumanjaro was testing from last Friday. Take a look. I don't see a problem here State Inspector. haha

Hydro Flume closed in 2006. In fact, they converted the old rotating station into a show stage. I kinda wish they had kept it open because there are only 2 water rides in the park now. Movietown Water Effect also closed in 2007.

They are launched over by the Great Lake Grandstand but don't watch them from there. The best place to see the Fireworks where you don't have to show up early and don't have to be in a huge mass of people is near El Toro. Cross under El Toro and stand along the fence by the river (over near the bridge that leads to Bizarro but right at the bend where the path goes under El Toro).

 

You have a great view and there are very few people over there.
