Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I noticed that too. They also have Safari Tours on both the Open and Closed lists.

 

So what are the chances you'll need a Flash Pass to see Santa? On a mild day that line is gonna wrap around to Green Lantern.

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.

 

Looks like someone noticed and they've updated it.

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.

 

That's a good point. I personally don't care about its use, except when done in public. I don't want to have to be exposed to it. It smells like crap and it makes me uncomfortable. If I can smell it I'm breathing it. It's inconsiderate to everyone around you, but modern society could give two sh*ts about the consideration of old school (non YOLO) values.

 

If selling it/consuming it within the park can be done in a tasteful manner without being in your face, I say go for it. Just like with the alcohol, price it high enough to keep it from getting out of hand. Consider how the atmosphere of a park could change if $1 bottles were offered. Although I don't know anything about how much weed it takes for you to get high, it would have to be priced right to keep people from getting 'too high,' with strict enforcement against public use to prevent people from bringing their own. So far I feel that most parks have done a good job keeping alcohol available without letting it get out of hand. This is a plus for my wife and I, since we enjoy a few beers throughout the evening when we visit parks.

^While I agree they'd have to have policies to keep it from getting out of hand (and confine it to designated smoking areas), it's worth pointing out that weed intoxication is different from alcohol intoxication. If you're going to act stupid on weed you'd probably act stupid regardless. Weed mostly just makes you sleepier and gigglier.

 

Of course despite that we're still a long, long way off from weed being an accepted public activity like alcohol.

To be honest I don't think that would be so great. I find weed (not that I've ever done it or anything *cough*) raises your sensitivity level in general, textures are more distinct, things taste more, colors are more vivid, etc, but this also comes with the negative effect that harsher things like cold breezes and bumps in the road bother you a lot more. I can't imagine how weed would enhance your enjoyment of a roller coaster. Dark rides hell yes, coasters no.

Some people just love to complain. Sheesh.

 

Having said that - while I would have loved for an X2 type ride, or a wing rider (Cuz who knows when I will make it to ride one somewhere else), this will be a great ride to add to the park. It is completely different than anything we have already. The majority of people will love it, and hopefully it will eat some of the line to allow me to go on other rides during busy seasons.

 

I will want to ride this.. but I am actually a bit scared. Has anyone been on both Green Lantern in SFMM and Batman in Tx to compare the two? I was diagnosed with severe whiplash that lasted over a year after riding green lantern. I was pulled from my seat, arms and legs and head around one of the last turns. Thank goodness for restraings! So my thing is, will this be a repeat of Green Lantern? Hoping to hear some comparisons.

 

P.S. Scream Machine removed *for the WIN*

I'm with you... I can't help but be a little nervous because of how bad Green Lantern at Magic Mountain is. It's absolutely the worst coaster I've ridden that's still in operation. It's really awful.

 

I'm optimistic though because Batman at SFFT seems to get nothing but overwhelmingly positive reviews.

Easy sir. There are some GL fanboys that will go above and beyond to convince you that the nut-crushing experience is a good time. I am with you though, GL @ SFMM is horrid.

 

Random Question: What is the GoPro chest-mount policy at SFGAdv?

My cousin will be going to HITP and asked me cause he knows I'm a "coaster geek."

GL is by far the worst ride at SFMM

Well it shouldn't! I wouldn't go so far as to say it was as bad as GL, but it was not a very comfortable ride. My collar bones felt it after that ride, the vests do the same thing that some of the B&M Wing Coasters do (Or at least X-Flight and Wild Eagle), where they tighten throughout the whole ride.

Gotta disagree with a vast majority of you, I liked Green Lantern. A bit uncomfortable, but a completely unique and out of control experience for me.

 

I'm sure this ride is going to be far better, and I hope to hit up this park and Dollywood for the first time next season. Hopefully I find El Toro to be even better than my beloved Phoenix.
