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

Take a ride on the defunct "Batman & Robin: The Chiller" Roller Coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure! VIDEO:

I'm pretty geeked that a coaster in the park now has the words "Crazy Train" in the name. I like that ride a little more now because of that.

 

It's the little things, guys.

For real though I got excited that on the new map Skull Mountain has its waterfall on, then I checked last years map and it was on there too. Let's see if they actually have it running this year. #priorities

I'm knowledgeable about coasters and how they work, so don't give me crap for a "GP" sounding story.

 

I went on Skull Mountain and my dad's legs are bigger (height wise) than mine, so the lap bar only went down to there, while I had lots of room. Since it's a ratchet restraint and there is only one per row, that made me slide around a lot! I tried to go hands up one of the rides I took, and on the drop... I ALMOST FLEW OUT

 

Luckily I grabbed the bar quickily, or else "airtime" would have a new meaning to the press... My scariest coaster experience, ever. Has that ever happened to anyone else? I can't find any pictures of the train from the front, so I can't confirm there isn't a seatbelt.

Sounds like we have a new member of The Cult. Welcome, you'll like it here.

 

And no there is no seatbelt. And that's the way we like it.

Genx24 and I once rode Skull Mountain without the restraint being fully locked in. Once we hit the brake run I pushed up on the restraint and it just opened fully. We are both full grown , I'm 6'2 and weigh 210 pounds so both of us holding down on the restraint must have kept it from opening during the ride

Yep. When we pulled back into the station, the bar just flew open before they unlocked them. Don't know how it didn't fly open during the ride, but thank the lord it didn't.

At this point I've gotten countless rides on SM when the op didn't even touch the lapbar and it was barely down at all. There are few things I love more than taking an unsuspecting non-coaster friend to the park and onto the back seat. "It's just a kiddie coaster in the dark, its fun. Come on..."

 

*20 minutes later*

 

"DUDE. I ALMOST FELL OUT OF THAT THING."

Because I'm a nerd and need to spend more of my time doing things that are almost completely pointless, I noticed that the SeaFari Theater, the cut-through from El Toro (or whatever else people might be riding in that area which would be nonsense) to the Golden Kingdom otter theater, is no longer listed on the 2016 Great Adventure map. The rendering of the theater is still on the map as I'm sure it's still standing, but I have to wonder if this means anything for the fate of those animal shows.

 

Edit: And... nevermind. It was moved from the list of theaters to the list of attractions in the Golden Kingdom. Carry on.

So that 90's attraction I was talking about before that would forever change was Blackbeard's Lost Treasure Train. It's now called Harley Quinn's Crazy Train. I think a few of you figured that out but it was funny watching all the rumors circulate.

^ Is it getting re-painted? It seems to be a different colour on the map.

 

I'd assume so. We'll find out in the next couple weeks. Another ride might be rumored for a paint job this spring as well It would be painted during the weekdays while the park isn't open.

I think the top contenders are probably Superman and maybe Batman. Has Supes ever been painted since opening? And Batman was painted last in 2004 I think? Anyone know? Last time RMT was repainted?

 

Ka and Nitro are both HUGE jobs and w/ Nitro being mostly not in the park so its not something I see them spending money on. I know it needs it. Ka doesn't really need it just yet. If it is Nitro I'll eat my foot.

 

Honestly Bizarro could use a fresh coat. I know its probably not going to get it anytime soon but the lift/brakerun catwalks (and many other spots) are almost back to Medusa green.

 

Maybe they're gonna really Go Big! Go Six Flags! and paint El Toro hot pink.

Superman honestly needs it more than anything in the park. It's location is ridiculously prominent and it's really looking rough. It may have been that way for awhile but I've noticed more lately since Holiday in the Park sort of gave us a new found appreciation for that ride and we rode it a ton.

 

As far as Batman, the blue at Magic Mountain looks sick. I'd love that but that's kind of a pipe dream.

 

If they paint something it'll probably be near the new ride.
