Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

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.

 

Totally agree. Id like SFGadv to re theme the old country section and add a bunch of flat rides like the boardwalks have, and go crazy with lighting packages using LED lights. Also would like the park to add a good show to the park. Right now the park has nothing but crap.

I completely agree. I think when we do get another major coaster it's going to be either a Wingrider or something like Yolocoaster as they're the only things we're really missing that Six Flags has built elsewhere (We don't have a Rocky Mountain coaster but we don't need one since we have El Toro).

 

I know people keep saying we need a traditional style wood coaster but that would be tough to market when you have a wood coaster that's going to blow that new coaster away in every possible category. My money is on a Wingrider... and I'd love for it to be near Chiller's old spot (though Old Country being empty doesn't bother me as much as it bothers most people).

 

For next year I think we'll just get a flat, and if we're lucky some general improvements (hopefully they fix Nitro's C train and figure out a way to get Kingda Ka and Zumanjaro to run together). I'd love for Safari Adventures to become something new or for the Golden Kingdom path to re-open but I don't think that's going to happen.

They had to landscape it a little bit because otherwise it would have just really looked like a mess. And remember, this is a GOOD Six Flags parks and they take care of things. And yes, I'm sure that whatever they put in that area will actually take some advantage of that landscaping so it will not all be lost.

Oh, but I can think of one or two things that would fit quite nicely in that space!

I realize that and meant to say something to that effect in my post. I just don't see why they would re-develop a pretty small area they *just* re-developed, when they have the ripe-for-something areas like lakefront/old country/movie town.

They didn't re-develop it. They laid some grass down. It was probably lumped into the cost of Zumanjaro and was negligible compared to the cost of the rest of the ride. And as far as re-developing that "small" area, never underestimate what a park has room for. Go to Blackpool, you'll see they've built some insanely HUGE rides in a fraction of the space.

 

And that area isn't as small as you think...

I supposed you are right about the size of the area. I still stand by my prediction that it will be elsewhere in the park and that area will remain mostly untouched.

As much as I'd like Old Country to be reopened, I think they're going to continue to focus on the GK / PDC area. Once I saw how long Zumanjaro's queue was, I always felt that it was designed specifically to be shortened, allowing them to extend a path to better incorporate new rides.

Many people do underestimate the size of that land between Ka and Toro. Like Robb said look at parks like Blackpool and even Hershey. They've mastered fitting huge things into tiny spaces. I can't see Old Country coming back anytime soon although it would be nice. Thats all employee stuff back by Old Country now and I think they are happy with it being like that for the time being.

I know we talked about this last year, but isn't there technically no way they could link the water park to the main park? Too far apart? Too bad they aren't closer, that expansion space could totally link the two! And yeah, my bet is still on the chiller area for 2015 expansion.

Saw this on Great Adventure's Twitter page. What could it mean?

 

It's clearly the world first Vekoma Giga Coaster, quote me if i'm wrong.

You know, actually I would be really interested if one day vekoma built a giga. We make fun of them but I would like to see what they would be able to come up with.

Just imagine a giga SLC.
