Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^Yeah, but be careful what you wish for. SFGAd is light years better than SFMM so maybe you don't want more coasters added year after year!

 

Oh, we don't. But ripping out essentially 5 coasters ( 2 sides of Chiller, GASM, and 2 sides of RT) in 7 years and replacing them with a cloned indoor mouse and a 15y.o B&M nut-banger is making us very thirsty to see some track on flatbeds come through!

Amen on the "nut-banger", bro.

I have a feeling it's going to be some coaster in the Rolling Thunder spot. Did we all really believe the "We have to remove RT to make space for the construction of Zumanjaro story"? I didn't think so. I could definitely see a coaster - this park hasn't gotten a big one in a long time!

I don't see us getting anything of interest since we just got Zumanjaro and there isn't any visible construction anywhere.

I agree 100%. Probably another flat. But we need flats so it isn't too bad. As for SFMM they get coasters every year or every other year. Also SFGAm got X-Flight and Goliath. Even SFFT got Iron Rattler and if the rumor is true then they'll get another coaster this year. I definitely think as arguably the best park in the chain that we could use a few coasters

I mean, we have two giant spots in the park cleared and ready for construction. If you look at it that way, Six Flags is actually well ahead of the construction schedule they usually use. Plus, the ride wouldn't have to open until July anyway.

 

Very few other Six Flags parks have teased or have been hyping announcements. The only one that comes to mind is Fiesta Texas. That teasing and hyping sums up to, yes, a single balloon. Perhaps SF doesn't see pre-announcement as a significant marketing strategy and is just going to drop something big out of the clear blue. To be honest, I pushed back my trip to Holiday World because I knew they building a major new coaster. Perhaps they see hyping as a reason for people to wait until next season to come. Just my two cents.

So here I am on the west coast, all excited about my first trip to the park on Wednesday — and I read there's a 100% chance of rain/thunderstorms for Wednesday, not letting up until maybe later in the evening. My. Luck.

 

We have hotel and rental car reservations in Jackson for Tue-Wed, and hotel reservations in NYC (but no rental car) for Thursday through the weekend. I'd hate to let go/eat the reservations and spend extra money on picking another park day, especially if the rain isn't as bad as they say it will be. But I'd also feel like I was wasting money if there's nothing to ride, or the park closes early, should we chance it on Wednesday. And I rarely get over to the east coast.

 

Any NJ folk or park regulars have any advice on whether I should go on Wed or not? A separate rain/SFGAdv forum and other Internet anecdotes say all sorts of different things, but they all pretty much say that thunderstorms usually mean the coasters close and KK closes during any rain (or is too painful in even drizzle). Thanks!

 

 

Hope you made it to the park today.....my son was there tonight- just came home, and told me it was dead! The (11) rides he had on Zumajaro kinda' sums up how the crowd was tonight.....

I know one of those is RT former spot, but what is the second giant spot you are referring to?

^Cedar Fair and SF have steered clear of these for some reason. SeaWorld parks are the only ones in the US with them. I've only been on JTA @ SWSD & SWSA and loved them both.

I'm really surprised by so much speculation of a ride opening in that spot between Toro and Ka. I guess those who think that haven't been back in that area lately?

 

With the Zumanjaro queue back there they've completely filled it with either fresh, new grass or some sort of landscaping. I highly doubt they would have just spent the money to put all of that greenery there to rip it back up and put new rides in there. There is just not that much space back there unless they were to expand into the old safari entrance and that would require tree removal, the township always has huge issues with this. They have all of this potentially open/unused space in Old Country/Movie Town. Not to mention the lakefront could use some development.

 

I highly highly highly highly doubt anything is going between Toro/Zum/Ka.

 

I'd love it if we got another coaster but something tells me its just going to be a large new flat or package of small flats.
