Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

If they end up using the name "Total Mayhem", I'll probably kill myself

 

Worst. Name. Ever.

Like someone mentioned the other day, the trademark was filed by Six Flags corporate, not Great Adventure. No indication that it will be used in GAdv, no need to get ridiculously hyperbolic.

^ I know. I was just joking and know they probably wont end up using it anyway. Even so, the only possibility for this name in my mind would be some sort of extreme flat of haunted maze. I know it probably won't be used for a coaster so I'm not that concerned.

The person who suggested it could be a fright fest trail put my heart at ease a bit. One of the major attractions this year is supposed to be a Fright Fest overhaul. I'd imagine its going to be HUGE this year. The park was just too packed for only 4 or 5 trails. They can make more money by making more trails. I'm sure people would use more of them if they had time to! People standing in line for 3 hours aren't spending money for 3 hours.

Sunday, July 5th ETR was terrific! I parked around 9:30am, waited about a minute for my wristband....and no line for security!

 

BATMAN (ie- NAMTAB) was a great ride! Walked right on- sat in the first row......man does it pack a punch backwards! Smooth, smooth, smooth! I was "one and done"....as my body wasn't 100% this morning- and that was all I could tolerate! First row on Nitro (no wait)....headed to the bumper cars- waited, and waited.....and walked away, as it was a hot mess with the people driving, empty cars, lousy job, etc.

 

Skyscreamer was a walk on.....hit El Toro at 10:30am (walk on, 1st row), then Zumanjaro (walk on)......Parachute? Sure....never ride it/walk on.

 

Got our "free" snack and lunch.....hit the road at 11:45am.

F U L L T H R O T T L E.

 

Enough said..

 

 

 

Personally, I don't feel like that is a bad name. I think its very fitting for a coaster, especially a launched coaster.

Six Flags is horrendous at customer service... It's almost funny how bad they are.

 

Out of curiosity does anyone have any phone number or extension for anyone at any park in the entire chain or the corporate office where somebody might actually be willing to assist someone who's been trying for 2 hours to figure out how to give them almost $400?

 

I'm trying to get a VIP Safari tour for my girlfriend for her birthday and I can't do it. The checkout link on the website doesn't work and the phone number is jut a recording that says to go on the website that doesn't work. I've used the get a human app, dialed every park in the chain and the corporate office hoping maybe they could transfer me and haven't managed to speak to a human... I said I wanted to bring a group of over 100 people when prompted hoping they could transfer me and they didn't even answer and actually the phone just hung up... I give up!

 

Anyone have a number that works? This is ridiculous. And it's between 9 and 5 on a weekday lol.

Did you try the ol' "Dial 0 for the operator" trick?

 

Also, what part of the checkout process didn't work? I simulated it here at work and got all the way to the point where I'd put in my credit card number. Could it be just your browser?

Just confirming you tried 732-928-2000 x2838? That's Guest Relations.

In other news, the construction fences have gone up, surrounding Aqua Stadium.

 

No matter what's coming in its place, it'll certainly be a much different view without the stadium sitting at the end of the entrance path. A little sad, but it's certainly past its prime now. Bring on the new!!

Yup, and no luck with the dial 0 trick.

 

My issue is with the cart, It can't find the VIP tour even when clicking the direct link. Do I need to be on a PC? There's a mobile cart but maybe it just sucks. Lol

Ah, you're correct. It doesn't work with mobile browser.

That's weird. You'd think SF would make sure they're able to take your money regardless of what platform you're using.

Okay so I'm new here, but I've been hearing all this speculation about the S&S free-spin at the lake front. As much as i'd rather this not happen and we'd get something better, i used google earth to see how it would fit. The diagram of the coaster shows the footprint is 280ft wide and i included pictures to show how it compares to the lakefront. The coaster is small enough to either fit in the grandstands footprint or fort independence's footprint. (the size of the lines/ footprints are circled in orange of where the coaster could fit.) If they are removing everything along the lakefront and we end up getting the free-spin, we're either going to have a lot of space to include other things such as flats (I hope) or retail and food locations, or we're just going to have a lot of empty space. Hopefully we get option number 1 with new flats, retail locations, and food offerings.

It is one of those rare cases where I actually wouldn't mind open space...as long as the open space is in the Grandstand's spot. It would be really nice to get an open view of the lake. I also wouldn't mind some flats or a restaurant, assuming the 4D takes up the Fort.

Not my thing.....but so be it! If others like it, great! Guess I'm old/ getting too old- as height and speed is my thing, not twists, turns, etc......

Without getting further into speculation (because some of it it's starting to border on ridiculous at this point), I think I'm most excited for this, too. Is going to be interesting seeing the new open view past where the stadium is used to be. I'm a big fan of openness.
