Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

honestly, I don't think it's a bad addition, but Green Lantern was a relocation (not to mention that it's not "great"), the flats were geared toward families, and the Safari was more fun when you could drive your car through it. I don't mean to sound negative, but Zumanjaro has been the only good thing in a long time. It's all just going to be a matter of opinions, which are all different.

Even though we are getting crap next year, in turn 2016 should bring something amazing. Hopefully

 

Sweet! A brand new Gravitron!

 

a world record breaking Gravitron

 

 

No, no, no! You got it all wrong. Starship 2000 for the win!!!

Went for the night today, and got my Zumanjaro and Bizzaro credits! Bizzaro was nice, and actually quite intense with all the elements it had like the fire and the mist, a solid B&M for sure! Zumanjaro was INCREDIBLE! The lift hill just kept going up faster and faster and especially since I rode it at night when it was dark it made it more scary! The drop was gradual, but INSANE! It definitely was worth the 45 minute wait and is the best drop tower I have EVER been on! I'm going tomorrow again, hopefully with some pictures too!

No no no no...

 

 

You've got it all wrong. Looping Dragon is the 13th coaster! Goliath would be 14!

But there's a twist. Goliath would be built by Triotech so is it a coaster at all? Is it just a dark ride, a coaster, or 7D experience? Maybe Six Flags would market it as all three.

^^Yep, and while were at it, Let's count Zumanjaro as three coasters. I mean those are actually more like a coaster than a Super Loop! Who Agrees?

 

Anyways though, it could have been a lot worse. At least we are getting something and not "Maison Rouge" or "Buccaneer Beach".

 

Heck, my home park is Great America, and were getting no thrill ride at all. Staying positive about the other rides is a great thing to do. Twisted colossus, Wicked cyclone, Batman? All of those rides look awesome! Despite the super Loops being marketed as coasters, and the overabundance of them, this could be the best year for Six Flags in a long time! Oh, and the Super Loops are actually quite fun - reserve judgment until you ride - you'll probably like it.

Next year I'm expecting a 4-D coaster (similar to batman at SFFT) or an RMC. I don't want a wingrider though. those are gimmicky. The only way I'd want any sort if wing coaster would be if it was made by Intamin.

IMO a wing coaster is not as gimmicky as a 4-D coaster. Also, can you say Intamin fanboy

Although I am not happy about this addition, and refuse to label it as a roller coaster, I truly hope that they are planning on spending a serious amount of money this upcoming season on upgrading infrastructure and beautifying the park. That, plus the addition of something substantial next season will allow me to forgive them for this mediocre at best addition.

 

Do we have any idea exactly where the ride is going?

 

The Golden Kingdom. Next to the entrance of Zumanjaro.

This counts as a coaster??? it looks like an oversized Ring of Fire you see at carnivals and county fairs. And Six Flags is getting four of these? I can understand Six Flags America getting one of these, but SF Great Adventure? One of Six Flags crown jewel parks? I guess Six Flags needs to balance out the awesome rides some parks are getting next year. Great Adventure didn't really need to add anything though - look at all they have!

 

 

I told ya man, I'm glad you had a great experience, like I did at SF:MM but trust the yearly goer...park sucks.

 

I really am a bit miffed this is the sorry excuse for a new ride we are getting, but can't even be surprised.

Also, I had a horrific thought: What would the waits be like for this?? Unless it just does like 2 or 3 loops..oi

I think most people will walk right past it and go straight for El Toro, Kingda Ka, or Zumanjaro. Sorry you aren't getting anything noteworthy next year? 2016 I guess.

I've only been to Great Adventure once in my life, but I find this addition incredibly bizarre. As others have said, I can understand SFA getting one of these, but this seems like an awfully tacky investment for a park of GAdv's caliber.

 

Are these Larson rides permanent installations, or do they still have that modular, carnival look?

 

Marketing this as a coaster is a bit ridiculous, but hey, if it brings more people into the park, that's good for everyone involved. And when you judge this as a flat ride, which it is, i guess it isn't so bad... haha

Here's Brain Drain at Elitch Gardens.

 

 

It doesn't really look as "portable" as the carnival Rings of Fire and Fire Balls but Elitch Gardens kind of just plopped it down there...

 

Looping Dragon looks like it will be a bit more integrated into its surrounding environment than Brain Drain.

I was told by management the ride is going where Rolling Thunder's last turn into the brake run used to be. I'm pretty sure the work being done by Zumanjaro's entrance is just pipe work.

So I just got off Nitro on the C train. It must be fixed since it's very smooth. Not glass smooth but a much smoother ride than the A train. Either it was fixed or just had a good day

 

When I went to the park last week I rode the C train as well and I noticed the same thing. It was a lot smoother than the last time that I rode in it.
