Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread

Are Single Rider lines an option?

 

Zumanjaro always has it's SRL going. Green Lantern does sometimes but that's a big maybe. The Joker will have a single rider line as well but you still have to wait through the regular q-line. The SRL doesn't begin until near where the line separates to either side of the station.

Ok, so I got to eat park food for the day. It's disappointing, but it is what it is. Kinda wishing I sprang for a Gold Dining pass now seeing that 2 meals in-park would basically cover 3/4 of what the sale price was. And I still got to buy a sports bottle to boot

^ I love Panda Express, but if the SFGAd Panda is like the one at SFStL, it is absolutely disgusting! Hopefully that's not the case. But I know most of the parks are one in the same when it comes to food.

The Panda Express at SFGAdv is the best one I've experienced at an amusement park. Clean, fully air conditioned, lots of variety in the food options. I know some of the park locations only offer a handful of entrees. SFGAdv offers most if not all of the full menu, including my favorites Honey Walnut Shrimp and Beijing Beef.

Wow! That looks amazing. Wish I could attend the passholder preview days, but alas real life got in the way. Going to have to plan a weekday trip to get on this because if internet response indicates anything, the ride is going to be pulling people from all over in on weekends.

Today The Joker had its media preview briefly before the Clown Prince of Crime decided he was done cooperating for the day. I was only fortunate enough to get one ride on it before it ran into issues with the dampeners being too loose, allowing a car to swing up above the standard zone going into the station and preventing the ride from correcting itself to vertical for disembarking, but that issue should be fixed soon. That one ride (green rail, facing forward) was quite enjoyable and fun with some good G forces in the 6 "inversions" we experienced. It's very similar to Batman at Fiesta Texas which I rode last year, though the fin placement on this one did seem different. I didn't get to ride the purple rail, but it did appear to have different fun placement from the green, and therefore would be a different ride experience, so ride both sides when you visit. As the first free spinning 4D on the East Coast, it's a great addition to the park's already impressive assortment of coasters and will continue to bring both fear and pleasure to all who face the challenge. Onto pics...

Normally I shy away from opening any presents from deranged psychopaths, yet alone ones with plungers, but what do I know!

Thanks for having us out today, Joker and Six Flags Great Adventure. Can't wait to come back and ride your new coaster again soon!

By this point everyone should have enough Joker Toxin in them to not stop laughing

About 3/4 of the way through the queue there is a single

Rider split off. There's also a separate Flashpass entrance that will meet with the regular queue right before the split between the green rail and the purple rail

Flipping good time!

Very comfy restraints make this 4D sensation even more enjoyable

One concern I have about the branding of this coaster is its lack of consistency. Like you can tell there are two different Joker faces in the logo and the signs. I love the theming of course, but why not stay with just one image? It's the same deal for Joker in SFDK... the logo and the face on the train don't really match. Just sayin'.

Wow! Media day today for the new "coaster" and there are barely any posts/comments.....

 

How come this wasn't a "bigger deal" so to say on TPR? Seems like anytime a new ride/coaster opens- it gets highlighted on the home page.....

Why is the single rider line so far through the queue like on Green Lantern? Am I missing something or has SFGA gotten this wrong twice? I'm not as seasoned as many of you on the number of parks I've visited, but never seen it done like this elsewhere.

Thanks for posting the pictures, The Joker looks really good and i'm certainly glad that they went for this theme rather than Total Mayhem. One other little thing that i quite like is the details on the side of each car, really nice little touch.

You must be new to this whole "Six Flags" thing. Personally I'm happy there's any "theming" at all.

I know well how Six Flags theming works, and I was happy to see what they did with Wicked Cyclone, but still, the people that oversee these projects should notice the difference... but then again we're talking about Six Flags, where the real slogan is "less money, less fun, Six Flags"
