Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Heading to the park today anyone know how the crowds are? (I'm guessing light in the beginning of the day then crowded later since its the first day of fright fest).

 

 

It's sat and it's fright fest. Park should be packed.

 

Agreed. Ride as many rides as you can early in the day before things get crazy.

I find it interesting that when Green Lantern was Chang at SFKK it received so much praise and everyone seemed to love it, and now that its at SFGAd everyone seems to hate it and says its a horrible Coaster. I have never ridden it at either Park so I cant speak from experience, but what is different about it now that makes it a horrible Coaster?

It looks good/you would think it would be good.....however, personally- it gives me a headache- thus I avoid at all cost (unless my son insists to go on it)

Maybe Green Lantern got rougher after being relocated. I've never found the ride that rough but the majority thinks other wise. And that digging by Zumanjaro's entrance was for the addition of light poles. There's a picture below from Greatadventurehistory.com of the footers for them. Hopefully this is the beginning of adding lights to the Golden Kingdom because it really needs them, especially in Kingda Ka's line.

That may have to do with what it's standing with in the park... As Chamg, it was T2, and a few other "not world class" coasters... At great adventure its standing with Kingda Ka, El Toro, and Nitro... That a tough group to stand up to...

 

^No, it is simply not good. It is rough and unpleasant

 

I think its a bit of both. Even when you take out KK and Toro, the other 4 B&Ms alone are miles better than Green Lantern: Batman is smooth and intense as hell, Superman is so smooth it is basically forceless save for the pretzel loop, Bizarro is a solid floorless with minimal headbanging if there is any at all & a wicked night ride when the effects are all on, and Nitro is amazing all around. GL is awkward right from the get go due to the standing, no matter how I position myself there is almost constant headbanging after the drop/first loop and my balls do not like the bicycle seat no matter how I try to straddle it. Add to this that the ride almost always has a decent line and it quickly become a big dud in an otherwise solid line up.

This is great news... the lack of light in the Golden Kingdom is ridiculous at this point. They were setting themselves up for a lawsuit because someone was bound to fall and hurt themselves because you can't see anything.

^While I don't love it, I feel I do like it more than almost everyone. In my visit last year I got just as many rides as I did on the other B&Ms. The roughness is a bit nasty but if you sit closer to the front it's not that bad and I honestly enjoy the standing up experience, even if it may be a bit hard on your legs.

The cheap looking entrance doesn't bother me so much in that pic as does the LOCKERS! LOCKERS! LOCKERS! LOCKERS!

 

edit: LOL I forgot that was going to happen. ^

 

Anyways, roud to say Ive been to SFGAdv 8 times (and SFA 1x) this season and not once have I paid for a locker.

Well, the good thing about SFA is all their rides have bins.

I'm going to GADV tomorrow from 11 to midnight. Locals/frequent visitors: What kind of crowds might I expect? How are the mazes and are they extra charge ? I see that there is a "pitch black" haunted house. I love these ! Is this one any good?

 

Also wondering if any of the major attractions are in refurbishment or closed ?

Lines will be unimaginably awful (possibly between 2 and 3 hours the major coasters). We're going too but we're absolutely getting a Flash Pass.

 

The good news is that all attractions should be open except the water rides. I can't help you with the haunted attractions unfortunately but I can tell you that they're pretty much all an additional charge.

Get a flash pass. With the amazing weather expected for tomorrow plus fright fest I wouldn't be surprised if lines are over 2 hours.

Thanks for the help guys.

 

FlashPass it is. Im getting there right at park opening I should be able to snag a regular one. I have yet to ride Zumanjaro, Green Lantern or the indoor mouse so I guess my only chance is to get one.

 

I just found out a wristband for the mazes is 15.00 with a season pass, 18.00 without.

 

Has anyone done "Total Darkness"? yet?
