Bro, Jersey legalized pot not crack. Put it down.

OH. MY. GOD. A SPIRAL MAINTENANCE STAIRCASE!!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO WALK DOWN IT!!!!  

Update: El Toro ran a bunch of test runs today and should open any day now

Can you imagine how ridiculous they're going to look if they sell it and somebody actually gets it running properly?

 

Not really... Enthusiasts already do mass amounts of complaining about the Six Flags chain, it wouldn't change much... Unless of course another Six Flags park bought it and fixed it. I don't know how that would be responded to be enthusiasts.

I don't really get what the problem is. The Mr. Freezes seem to run pretty well these days. What can't they get ironed out with these that they've been able to take care of with the Freezes?

Supposedly it was crapply installed. Plus there were problems with the rolls, but that was fixed. I'm recall hearing that the LIMs were damaged during assembly or installation. And it used so much power that it was impossible for them to duel like they were designed to. I would love to see them fixed and installed at a new park though. I know a park a little north of SFGAdv that could use a launch coaster

I'm still upset about this I never rode Batman with just lapbars.

 

This park just seems to want to become a Dutch Wonderland with big roller coasters (yes some great coasters at that). I mean how many family/extreme flats have been removed. Now they are removing 3 rides(2 coasters and MTWE?) for one ride that's a Wild Mouse.

I think SFGADV thinks they can just keep attracting people by adding a huge ride every so often and adding kiddie sections. And the big rides they can't maintain they just tear down or let fall apart; the Chiller was a really good ride after the trains were modified.

^We at GADV.com had a Q&A with General Manager Mark Kane, who did indead say that!

 

You didn't happen to ask him how we can ever again believe anything he says, since he said that it was going to be repaired for next year?

Does anybody reallize that the removal of this coaster makes it the amusement park with the most "past coasters"? If you compensate for both Batman & Robin, and both of the Lightnin' Loops, the park is up to 13.

 

SFGAd has closed more coasters than most parks ever hope to build!!!

If another park bought this ride, they are stupid. This ride has had so many problems over the years, it would be a terrible investment. Of course, just about any ride that has been moved from Great Adventure has worked great after its removal, so who knows.

^^^ What I meant was "park with the most past coaster's that's still open". I don't GL count's, because they shut down, and they naturaly lost all of their coasters.

 

Cedar Point may have closed 13, but CP has 103 years of operation over GAd, and 71 years of coaster building over GAd.
