Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I believe this is real and for a few reasons. The rumored two toned color scheme, red and orange, are what are depicted in the video. Second, this looks like a Six Flags announcement video. It looks like they payed that guy who does every major coaster animation to do this one as well. Even the rumored Full Throttle tent can be seen. Now for those saying that "Six Flags wouldnt mess up the name of the model of a coaster on their animation" look at the Batman animation. They also call it a free fly coaster in that video as well. Also, this looks WAY too professional to be fake. The ride looks so real, and even the actual rides in the park can be seen in the distance. Now the only concerns that this may be fake would be that it seems to not be in the spot that was apparently proposed by Six Flags at the town meeting. Six Flags also seemed to have used the exact same camera angles used in the Batman animation. Watch them side by side. Could someone have fake it by cutting things from the Batman video, then edit it to fit the rumors? I mean, i guess it could be possible, but it would take so much time and skill, that in my opinion, it confirms this as real for me. We will see tomorrow, but i believe that this is legit.

 

I am happy and not happy at the same time. I did not have any problems with a 4D coming to the park, but i have many problems with it. First of all, THE LINES! This looks like a low capacity coaster! It did fine, and even got very long lines at Fiesta Texas, but now your going to add the same one to the worlds largest theme park!!! Its going to be insane! I mean, as long as it takes lines away from Toro, ill be happy. Also, they couldve placed this ANYWHERE else in the park, but they wasted this amazing area on a small coaster. It was prime real estate for a larger attraction, but now we have this small one here that in my opinon wont look all that great in front of the lake as compared to other coasters.

 

This could be fake though, because i dont know if SF would risk putting such a low capacity coaster here at this park. I would certainly expect them to go with the taller version. Also, who even is this kid that posted this video? It was posted by some unknown non-coaster channel. why does this random person have it. Who knows. Someone could have just pulled one of the biggest trolls in the history of theme park announcements. We will find out tomorrow.

Maybe I'll be surprised come morning but I'm going with legit on that clip. If its a fake its really good. Bummer its not the bigger version.

 

edit: Oh and there's this.

The video looks real to me but that photo doesn't... I don't see why Six Flags would put a sign saying "Total Mayhem 4D Free Fly Coaster" on the ride itself, but I guess it's possible.

It's legit... The awful name... The awful Full Throttle-esque themeing... The tent with the stupid TV....gahhh. I'm sorry, you guys, I wish this went to a smaller park like SFA or SFOG. SFGAdv deserves better for sure.. I wish I could tell you that the one at SFFT was fun, but I would be lying to myself. Happy end to the coaster drought! (At least the colors are interesting!)

Well, at least it's something unique to this side of the U.S. I agree that the name isn't good or the Full Throttle theming is unappealing, but the ride looks fun. To say that this ride sucks is a little premature.

 

Cue the "disappointment" posts in 3..2..1...

I want to believe it's fake and the surprise isn't spoiled, but that looks really good. If it is real, the colors look good, but why would they go with the small model again? It would be a lot more marketable if it were longer and had more flips. I'm hearing a lot of good things though, so I bet this will be a hit.

This is brutal. I was expecting a 4-D but at least give us the larger version. I'm feeling slighted to be honest. Not even a good theme, they just decided to plop it on the lakefront with a generic theme. Any sort of theming would have been better than this.

 

Oh well, I think this will play into my thinking that we will see another coaster added in 2016 or 2017.

Call me crazy, but I am really not buying this. . . Until it comes straight from Six Flags then I am not going to believe it. For some reason I don't believe this "Tammy Duffy" really knows anything more than anyone else. If you watch this video, and the

it is damn near the same video. Same shots of the coaster, except maybe mirrored, and same music... It just looks like someone had some fun with some video editing software. While yes Six Flags could use similar promo videos for the two coasters I highly doubt the two videos would be this similar.

 

Maybe I'm on my own here, but I really don't think this is the real deal. If it is I will be surprised, but for now I am not holding my breath.

WAIT A MINUTE!!! That picture on the website depicts a boomerang in the background. The SAME boomerang at FIesta Texas. Same colors and everything. you can even see the same one in the background in the batman the ride animation in the same place facing the same direction. Also, the sign on the side of the ride in the picture is the same as the batman one. It looks like this person just edited a picture on top of the batman logo. Also, in the video of the ride, there is no sign at all. This is so confusing, as it looks real, but its not checking out. Also, this guy who runs the site that this picture was posted to is selling art on it. could that mean hes an artist and that he knows how to do this stuff professionally? I dont know, just speculation. Probably not. But at least we are still not sure if this is real or fake. We will find out when the real announcement comes out.

It's real for sure. This has Keith's animation style written all over it, and you can even see his Kingda Ka animation in the background, as well as the other background rides in the park. The material settings look exactly the same as B:TR's rendering, it's nearly identical. It's a shame they didn't spring for the 10 inversion model, this thing is unfortunately going to be a capacity nightmare if next year is anywhere near as crowded as this year was. I think I'll wait until later in the year to ride it (given that it's SF it may very well open then ), when the hype finally dies down and I won't have to wait 5 hours to ride it. I really think the ride experience doesn't justify the ridiculous wait times this thing will get. It actually looks a lot better on the lake than I thought, and the color scheme is pretty cool with the 2 color rails, but the color choice could have been better. This definitely means Roar could get this sort of color scheme too. The theming/name could also have been better.

 

Another reason it's real is because typically the park releases the animation to the media early but it's strictly confidential so that they can prepare their articles in advance. Apparently someone leaked it and I don't think the'yll be at media day any time soon

I know a thing or two about video editing and I can definitely say that that this video was not made from the SFFT Batman video. The background rides fit in too well with the video for it to be a person having fun with video editing software. What this most likely is was the animation company doing a copy and paste of the Batman ride model and animation in to the Great Adventure park model. The reason some of the animations and music are identical is probably because they were just placeholders until they could come up with new ones for the final video we may see tomorrow. This probably an unfinished trailer for the ride that got leaked.

I can tell you that I am on the embargo list and we have not received the materials yet. So we will just have to wait and see if this is real or not.
