Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^ My thoughts exactly. Now that the park is included in the free Gold upgrades on season passes, the park is insanely crowded very often.

 

No, it's not a slide complex with drop-box slides, but this is what the park needed. 300 new lounge chairs and the added square footage are huge improvements for the park!

Though, I can imagine some MM guests getting their medical on.

They definitely do, though I've never seen anyone with a blunt on a coaster. Usually it's just those vape pens that are very easy to conceal. Could it be Great Adventure's guests are slight more rarchet than MM's?

Attention Boldikus; your pleas for Skull Mountain ERT have not gone unheard. From the latest newsletter:

See you guys in the back car!

 

Seriously though the most exciting thing in that newsletter for me is "peppermint eggnog funnel cake".

I wonder if after legalization takes place (Prime Minister of Canada announced he will legalize it, Supreme court of Mexico ruled that prohibition is against human rights, and 4 states and DC have legalized.. so its coming) if parks will sell infused drinks or have a 'smoking lounge'. Id imagine there is a metric-butt-ton of money to be made and they already sell alcohol. Think about how much their snack sales will go up! Six Flags will sell 4x more churros!

 

I have no problem with someone consuming weed at the park, but I have a problem with it on a lift hill. The same way I'd have an issue if someone was drinking a beer or using a cell phone on a lift hill. Ride safety always come first.

I am curious as to when they'll release the ride list for Holiday in the Park. The website has been telling us to "check back" since April. Based on the map and press release it seems like we can figure it out but an official list would be cool.

 

BOOM

 

Note: they are not advertising Batman as "Batman: The Ride Backwards", take that for what its worth.

 

Also, we now have a HITP "brochure" in PDF format, complete with a detailed HITP park map HERE.

It was discussed a couple pages back about the renaming/retheming of SM. Just guessing but from the description it sounds like the queue will be themed, probably some sort of walk thru xmas light display but the actual ride will be in the dark still.

 

POINSETTIA PEAK Tunnel into a fully immersive world of holiday adventure on this all indoor coaster—in total darkness! The lighted beauty of the coaster will prime you for your swift adventure into dips and turns perfect for the whole family this holiday season.

 

Also someone was asking about Blackbeards being open, this confirms that it will be closed. Looks like the closest anyone will be able to get to ToteMay construction is the Flash Pass building.

The rethemed will be "poinsettia peak".

 

Ahem... I believe you meant "Poinsettia Peak Sponsored by Takis".

 

Face the intensity... face it.

 

PS: I still can't believe this is happening. The fact that they're running 6 coasters until January in New Jersey (one of which is an 80 MPH hyper coaster) is awesome. I really hope this event is successful and they keep doing this.

Probably too close to construction. Looks like you still have Road Runner Railway.

I honestly thought you were joking, until I looked closer at the map PDF, and sure enough, there's that damned Takis logo. >_<

If you really want to laugh... look at this page.

 

The stock photos make the food look amazing but the descriptions don't match at all. It's basically a bunch of pictures of amazing holiday meals and then text that essentially says "yeah it's more crappy chicken tenders". lol

 

My favorite is this picture...

Followed by this description that has NOTHING to do with the picture at all...

 

Share a meal with family and friends! Italian food, hot soups, salads, hot chocolate and more!

 

What?

Speaking of beer, much like Six Flags New England they still had Summer Shandy on tap on closing weekend. If this park serves me a Summer Shandy on tap during Holiday in the Park they'll officially be my new favorite park ever.

 

well... favorite park not named Knoebels

Looks like there is some conflicting information on their rides list. All of the Bugs Bunny National Park rides are in the open rides list and Bugs Bunny National Park is under the closed rides list. They even have the National Park Water Tower listed as being open.
