Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^I wouldn't call it mistake. But maybe they should have made sure that they could run both rides at the same time first. All in all, at SFMM it works just fine.

That's exactly why it is a mistake. GAdv assumed NJ would allow them to run both rides simultaneously. They should have done their homework some more, before rushing to slap the ride onto KK and then fighting with the state to get it open.

 

No its because NJ told them at the last second they couldn't do it. Its really silly since LLDD and Giant Drop operate just fine with no loose article incident, we also have Top Thrill Dragster with the midway right behind the tower, the que in the middle, and the midway going next to the launch area with again no incident. Its just NJ politics being corrupt as usually.

 

What do you expect from NJ and its Liberal excessive regulations. That's what NJ voters, vote for, over regulated and high taxes.

Wtf is the ghosts though... Bigger additions to fright fest?

 

It's Boo Berry. Well, more specifically, the way he looked on the original 1972 boxes of the cereal. 1972 was also the year the original plans for SFGAdv were conceived (though I think I'm reading too much into that as a clue...)

This seems like an accurate speculation to me via Screamscape:

 

2015 - New Attraction(s) - Rumor - (8/23/14) The various image hints coming from Six Flags Great Adventure have got me thinking about a few things that may be coming to the park in 2015. Forget the rumors about a new coaster, because that isn’t happening… but instead I think we may see 2 or 3 things come for next season.

1) There isn’t a ton of evidence for this one, but I believe that there is a good chance we will see a new slide and water attraction go into Hurricane Harbor. This is mostly a hunch on my part, but the park can always use some added capacity to help things along, and there was one image in the hints showing off a spinning water wheel.

2) Batman Backwards – One of the image hints did have the year 1993 written backwards, and 1993 was the year that Batman: The Ride came to the park. Six Flags has a traveling train they have been using for this purpose to hit a couple of parks a season for the last two years, and it has yet to make it to SFGAdv, so it is obviously time. Already this year we have seen it spend the spring at Six Flags Magic Mountain and it is currently at Six Flags over Texas. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it continue East from there and hit up both Six Flags over Georgia and Great Adventure over the 2015 season.

3) Finally I’ve come to a realization as to what the park’s new permanent ride may be… and the one clue spells it out perfectly. SUPER… LOOP. To be honest, I’m surprised by this, especially after the downtime issues Elitch Gardens in Colorado has had with their new 7-story Super Loop (Brain Drain) this summer, but there are a ton of image hints showing off images of giant rings or the word “loop”. But the one hint of Domo in a Superman costume next to the word “Loop” just really drove it home for me. Just something to think about, and I’m thinking this wont be the only version of this ride being added to a Six Flags park in 2015.

No. Just no. Please no super loop. We need a high capacity ride. Not this crap. I'd rather see a used boomerang than this. This thing belongs at a county fair, not an amusement park.

A super loop makes sense based on the clues, but common sense should dictate that it would not be the best decision for the park. It doesn't seem like the most appealing ride, either. Isn't this model almost the same ride that used to exist, just under a different name? There are a lot more appealing flats they could install out there. More appealing in terms of capacity and overall design.

I still think the loop clues involve a new HH slide, but a Super Loop wouldn't be a terrible addition. The park has been building its flat collection for the last couple of years and it would beef that lineup a bit. Definitely a cheesy, underwhelming addition for arguably the chain's crown jewel, but at least it's something.

A Super Loop isn't very expensive. Maybe next year it's the year we finally get a new huge coaster. But the Super Loop will not bring in any attendance. It'll be a huge failure. I'm still hoping for some type of water ride

Also I noticed that the caption for the third clue says "Third #round of #clues - is the truth getting any clearer or are you still in the dark?" Is this hinting at a dark ride possibly?

Screamscape Says it is all but confirmed that we will be getting a Super Loop and it will be called Looping Dragon.

 

Hey, it's a new flat ride, something the park needs. That's how I look at it.

Knowing Six Flags, they'll market it as a coaster.

 

Since you know Six Flags so well, what non-coasters have been marketed as coasters at SFGAdv?
