Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Anybody know what kind of crowds to expect on the 29th? I know Freehold Township school district is on spring break that day, but I figure because it's a week after opening day, everybody that wanted to go will have gone already.

Third construction update video has just been posted, and it's got lots of delicious drone footage! Looks like they only have a handful of pieces left to place at this point.

The coaster looks great along the lake, I know a lot of people aren't happy with this addition but I really think it adds variety to an already great collection.

I just don't understand how people aren't excited about any new coaster being added, let alone one that's rare at this point. Only one has been built so far, just confused here

I'd be more excited if I didn't ride Green Lantern at Magic Mountain. That thing should either be scrapped or relocated to Guantanamo Bay. The only other similar style I've ridden is X2 which I also consider to be one of the worst coasters in existence. That being said I know this is a different manufacturer and has received positive reviews so I'm trying to be optimistic about it.

I think it's a great addition to the park. I just feel like their is a better use of a great lakefront view/property. To me it seems more like an ideal location for a seated restaurant and some kind of nice walk as close to the lake as possible.

 

Still looks great.

I prefer my coasters to turn left or right at some point.

I am excited a new coaster is being built simply to take the heat off the rides I love at the park. In general I think its an ugly ride and a wasted opportunity to put something spectacular on the lakefront. That doesn't mean the ride won't be a hit and the GP will most definitely eat this thing up. Also I haven't ridden the SFFT installation so I have no opinion of the ride experience but it *looks* like puke machine to me. I might be wrong, and I will definitely try it once, and maybe I'll love it. Never judge a ride til you ride it.

I disagree on the "wasted opportunity" argument. I like to stare off to the side as a coaster goes through a loop for added effect, so I personally can't wait to sit on the purple side of the track and stare off to the side at the lake while the car flips around.

 

Great view + added distortion = fun for all (with iron stomachs)

I rode two on the Scandi Tour (Insane at Gröna Lund & Kirnu at Linnanmäki) and they weren't to bad, but I was drinking a lot on the tour so who knows how they are sober

If the Coaster Gods had a sense of humor, they'd smite you with a Wild Mouse next.

Might be funny if we didn't already have one.

Yeah more like a Toboggan coaster.

When has a silly little detail like that ever stopped Six Flags?

Ditto my friend! Call it what it is- a carnival ride!

The coaster vs. carnival ride jokes were absolutely warranted w/ the parks marketing of El Diablo, but The Joker is a coaster. How is it not? Because it flips? If we go by that theory a spinning mouse is not a coaster because it spins? Come on.

 

These freespins are pulled up a lift and coast the rest of the way. Maybe not a roller coaster in the traditional sense but as much as it's not what I wanted, and I think its ugly, it is a coaster, it is next level, it is highly marketable, and it is going to be a smash.

 

And honestly, El Diablo is a carnival ride that looks great in the parks Plaza Del Carnival section, so can we just get over it already?

Heat seeking missiles should be deployed any time someone tries to continue the "carnival ride" argument on this site.

 

Either that or we should collectively pay a homeless man to piss in said person''s morning cereal.

I still have not ridden El Diablo. One day I will. The funny thing is when I was a kid I rode Morey's 'Ring of Fire' right before it was removed and as a kid, I always wanted it to come back. You'd think that would've had me thrilled when GAdv announced that's what we were getting, but how can you be excited about a super loop next to El Freaking Toro?

 

One day when Toro has an hour+ wait and Diablo is 5 minutes is the day I'll ride.

El Diablo is a whole lot of fun for what it is. I hated the addition and certainly railed against the park for calling it a coaster. But after riding it, I shut my mouth. It serves a dual purpose: another much needed flat in the park, and something to do for the little thrill seekers who are either too small or too leery to ride the big stuff.
