Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Is the shirt a bit offensive? Yes.

 

Are the shirts that the park sells saying "Size matters", "We're so high", "My favorite position is upside down", and "I like it rough" offensive? Yes.

I got a shirt that says "This guy likes to ride" in huge text and "Coasters at Six Flags" in little text at the bottom. I didn't realize the innuendo until my friends started making fun of it. I decided to stop wearing the shirt for good when while wearing it to a grocery store, an old lady stopped me to tell me she thought it was hilarious.

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.

 

Old Country is reserved for Fright Fest. I also think the site is where the former Haunted Castle attraction was located. That area needs to be respected since the incident killed a dozen teenagers and nearly drove the park out of business. For now, Great Adventure is going to leave it like this. The park needs to add a new set of flats and a water ride. The old footprint of Rolling Thunder between Kingda Ka and El Toro is the perfect place to build them OR the Lake Front. A new coaster will not fit inside the Lake Front unless the Log Flume in Frontier Adventures is removed.

 

Rolling Thunder was removed to create room for a major expansion. It was technically in the way. We could see a new midway constructed from Kingda Ka to the base of Zumanjaro, a new roller coaster, animal exhibits, and a brand new Safari station. The name Zumanjaro was inspired from the Safari attraction. There's room behind Kingda Ka and the baboons in the safari is being relocated. It frees up space for two major roller coasters. A secondary path can be built to El Toro and Bizarro. Bizarro and Kingda Ka are located in dead ends and something needs to be done to help with the crowd flow, especially at Kingda Ka.

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!

 

If the park is building a new roller coaster, survey marks would be popping up and the forums would be all over it. I haven't heard anything about those. I see a coaster coming at Rolling Thunder's spot, but not next year.

If it is going to be a flat package, please put something BIG... I feel like a giant frisbee would be a perfect fit for the park at this point!

 

We need a flat package. A new "War on Lines" would be good. The park installed 25 new rides back in 1999 and only a dozen remain there today. some of those still existing are SBNO.

Agreed. While I was working, I was told by a higher up that the new ride next year would not be a coaster. I've also heard rumors from other employees that the ride next year was originally slated to be a coaster but that plan was pushed back after Zumanjaro went over budget. Whether that's true, I'm not sure. The higher up did tell me that we would appreciate the new addition though

Maybe they are not going to start doing survey markers until Aug 28th. Whats the big rush anyways. As long as the ride is open by the 4th of July

Six flags needs to pick their battles. Crowds of kids screaming F this, F that, running all over my lawn. Get off my lawn with your tweeters and instant grahams, this place isn't a family park. The amount of male phallaces drawn on walls and railing in line for the rides is worse than that shirt.

 

"Mommy what does that guys shirt mean?" "Son, it means he fought for this country so we can enjoy ourselves at this lovely park today." "Oh cool mommy, Whats that picture of a hot dog on wheels mean?"

The park needs to do a lot more to make the park "family friendly," but I'd rather the park give little effort like this than no effort at all.

Are the shirts that the park sells saying "Size matters", "We're so high", "My favorite position is upside down", and "I like it rough" offensive? Yes.

 

I'm more offended that those are the ONLY shirts that they sell. I just wanted a shirt with a simple "El Toro" logo or something, but I found literally nothing

Walking through the gift shops at a Six Flags park makes me feel like I've stepped into a real-life Idiocracy.

The scary part is how well that crap sells.

A Mack or Intamin water coaster would fit nicely due to the fact our remaining water rides are from 1974 and 1981.

Why would they add a water ride in the park? This is Six Flags. If you want to get wet, gotta pay a separate admission to HH.

What about a Tsunami Soaker? It's a small fit, cheap addition and people at SFSTl, SFDK, and La Ronde seem to like this ride. Or they could just be REALLY cheap and just send in a set of flying scooters. I know some people haven't ridden these yet, because flying scooters is something everyone enjoys. It has a lot of thrills.

Ok so I found something very interesting for the clue. The dragon can be wing. The zero could be "o". And the water wheel could mean stir since it is spinning. Put all that together and you get "wing-o-stir". If you say it fast it kinda sounds like "wing coaster". Could this be what it means? Maybe six flags has something up it's sleeve

Did you read ElToro_Ryan's post? He said that the higher management told him that it's not a coaster!

Honestly, that's a problem at most parks (outside of Disney). I took my first trip to Cedar Point earlier this year and just wanted a nice retro park shirt or a Magnum XL-200 shirt but there were slim pickings. Most of the apparel were just designs straight out of the late 90s with useless coaster stats superimposed on top. At least Great Adventure's "suggestive" apparel looks like its from this century.

I know but you never really know. There could still be a slight chance. I just found it interesting how it was interpreted and it does make some sense
