Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread

If they re-theme El Toro into El Raindeer with antlers I will be over in a heartbeat.

 

Sounds like Toro will not run (surely they would mention it in the announcement, no?), which is a huge bummer but

 

Yeah, I figure as much. I will need to get my rides on it in late June / early July when I'm over in the U.S. Can't wait to get back on it. I miss Nitro too.

According to Ryan El Toro doesn't do well in the cold in preseason and haunt. I can't imagine it doing better in winter.

 

I can concur - my last trip to the park in October of 2014, we rode Toro in the morning 4xs when it was in the mid-upper 40s and the train was CRAWLING over the last few bunnyhops - definitely the slowest rides I've ever had on it.

Can we all agree that having a few coasters to ride (even if it is just Dark Knight and Skull Mountain on select days) is better than having no coasters to ride?

In theory, it's great. But by the time this event rolls around, and the park for any reason can't get any of the B&Ms operating, I don't see myself driving an hour down to Jackson just to ride Skull Mountain.

 

I totally agree with you

Maybe I'm not understanding it right, maybe it's an April Fool's joke, but does this mean the park will be open all-nighters from Saturday to Sunday during Fright Fest?

 

 

No, that means the park is open until Midnight, then closes. And the following day reopens at 11am. 11 hour gap there.

 

EDIT: Scratch that. I see what you're saying now. I was looking at Friday-Saturday, not Saturday-Sunday.

 

EDIT 2: So looking at the text below the calendar, I think that's just a bug with the calendar view. The text below lists the hours as:

Friday, October 23: 5:30pm to 12:00am

Saturday, October 24: 11:00am to 12:00am

Sunday, October 25: 11:00am to 10:00pm

^ At 16, I can see how one would be too cool for yer mom jokes, but take it from a 37-yr-old (going on 13): you'll come back around.

Well, I didn't take the pic but from the looks of it they are certainly cleaning it. One would hope a paint job would follow.

How crowded does this park get between late June and early July? Are students on break or in school during the weekdays and is it usual for working people to take their holiday this period? I'm thinking of 20th of June to 3rd of July.

^ Depends on the day. Kids are out of school during that time. Weekdays would be preferable to weekends. During the day the park has a lot of camp groups visiting, but they usually leave by 4-5 pm. A flash pass isn't usually necessary on weekdays, but that varies. I'd wait until after I arrive to decide on whether or not to buy one.

^ I went on the last Sunday in June last year and we managed to do a lot without getting a Flash Pass. It was a nice day, kind of hot too, and moderately crowded but we still got on Toro more than once, and did almost everything else in the park we wanted to.

 

Weekdays in June I can't speak of since the only weekdays I went last summer were in mid July and then mid August, both of those weekdays I got a Flash Pass (one day we *almost* didn't need it - a Wednesday in July, the other day we definitely did, a Friday in August, Bring-A-Friend Free day).

 

Two things to consider about the last week of June 2015 @ the park: the beginning of that week is when Coaster Con 2015 will be @ the park (not sure how this will affect crowds), and Batman will likely not be running at all that week since they'll be installing the backwards trains on it to start running them July 4th.

Thank you both Genx24 and Boldikus. Great info. I'm more bummed about not getting to ride Batman backwards than it probably beeing down as I got to ride it last year anyway. The main draw this year is getting on Kingda-Ka and Superman as I never got to ride them last year. Still I want to get as much out of my visit as possible.

 

Coaster Con you say? Fill me in on this event.

Thank you. I'm guessing that might make the lines a little longer.

 

I think the bigger concern should be that they'll have ERT in the morning and at night and I believe they are there that Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. So some rides may be closed off, unless their ERT is before/after the park opens, which I'm not sure of.

All I can read out of that is "Become an ACE member to go with your Club TPR and European Coaster Club memberships, sign up for the event and get some ERT".

Well, yeah. Im not an ACEr and not trying to promote for them, I just know its their event as I did look into participating but I just don't have the coin right now. Also, @Swede - check your PMs.
