Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread

LOL I think most locals would happily give up:

 

Dark Knight

Green Lantern

Ultimate Flight

Road Runner Railway

 

in exchange for New Texas Giant. But doesn't seem like a fair trade for Texas imo, and no you cannot have Skull Mountain.

Skully is a great coaster. One of my favorites at the park. Back row airtime is unreal.

 

The only thing that fits in the grandstand spot is a freespin. Oh well.

 

You know what also fits in that spot? The station for a Rocky Mountain Construction terrain woodie around the lake. I can still dream, right?

Stop the insanity, I try to ride Skull Mountain on every trip it is not AWESOME. At least in my opinion.

 

It has one really fun drop that can only be fully experienced in the last car. It provide 0.5 seconds of fun, that doesn't make the coaster awesome. Locals are stating to sound like enthusiasts from other parks, we are better than this.

LOL ^

 

For me yes the airtime on the drop in the back seat is awesome and a huge reason I love it but I also appreciate not being able to see whats coming at all, the ridiculous blasting death metal, the strobe lights, the half assed props that are usually not working, and the usually short wait. It does have some of the most elaborate themeing in the park, you can't deny that. (LOL)

 

Its like a Disney ride gone horribly wrong. I love it.

Its funny how the queue and station are themed incredibly well, and the actual ride has a tiki-mask, a few pumpkins, and a skeleton. Why are there pumpkins inside of a mountain? It makes zero sense. Really? Pumpkins!

 

I ride skully every time I go to GADV. Cant say the same about Bizarro, SUF, or GL. Its unique, fun coaster.

 

Edit: I had to come back and restate just how little sense having pumpkin props inside skull mountain makes. Somebody, who was being paid, was asked "What kind of props should we put in Skull Mountain?". That person, with a straightface, said "Pumpkins. Put some giant pumpkins in there."

 

Then somebody had to order giant pumpkins. Somebody had to make giant pumpkins. Somebody had to deliver several giant pumpkins to the park. Install said giant pumpkins into the ride. And somebody had to say "Perfect! Looks great! This is good.

 

Along that entire process, nobody asked "Why are there pumpkins growing where there is no light?". "Why are there giant pumpkins in this moubtain?". "Wouldnt nearly anything else be a better choice than pumpkins?".

 

Really though.

I do enjoy getting a ride when its not a crazy line, but i wish the waterfall still worked, thanks six flags.

My friend told me that Namtab's motor bles out on Sunday. Can anyone confirm this, and if so, has it reopened. I haven't been to the park since Memorial Day and this is the last chance I'll get before it goes back to Batman. (Spending next weekend at SFNE and the one after at Knoebel's)

I haven't heard anything about a blown lift motor and I saw the ride running today as I was walking out of work.
