Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm going to throw a fucking tantrum. I am super concerned after it was announced this morning that Colossus would open for 2017 either.

 

And I was going to go back to SFGADv this year.

^I hope so. But if the park confirmed this with an online fan group, they should have immediately corrected it on their website.

 

Great Adventure Online is saying that the website has not been updated since HiTP, but El Toro is the only coaster that says closed for the season. For reference KK and K:DoD, Runaway Mine Train don't show closed for the season. Log Flume and Justice League show not open yet.

 

The way it appears in Six Flags current website is just odd.

Part of me wants this to hold true just to watch enthusiasts lose their poo-poo...

 

While no one should ever lose one's "poo-poo", El Toro being down the whole year is a much more valid reason than freaking out over a new ride's prospective name or getting pissy over Larson Loops getting called coasters.

 

That said, I trust the moderator of that group; he's an excellent and reliable source for information. I'm sure it's just an error.

I've been watching the website, and not much has been done to it since the season ended. The Flash Pass screen still doesn't say whether Justice League is on it and says Joker is new for 2016, and still lists dummy prices for each tier. I think the website hasn't been a real priority to them over the offseason.

Why do I feel like I remember something like this happening with their website last year (or maybe the year before)? With certain things listed as closed and then we showed up opening day and all was fine? Relax everyone, I'm sure The Bull will buck again this season.

 

And I'll be there first thing opening day making sure its happening.

Wait, this was a thing people were legitimately worried about?

 

Well, since one of the other 4 of that type isn't running this year, it looked pretty terrifying to everyone that they might all be a mess.

The idea of Toro being down for an entire season is legitimately something to get our panties in a bunch over but you just have to remember this is SFGAdv and its likely just some idiot in their website maintenance department just playing with our hearts and minds.

 

Speaking of the website, I just got a new passholder email linking me to a page on the site that talks about the new food and retail around JLBFM.

 

 

New Rides, Shops, and Foods at the Park in 2017

 

We have lots of new thrills and surprises in store for you this year. We’re introducing a new ride, a new gift shop, a new restaurant, a new cold treat, and much more to come. Here are a few of the new experiences you’ll find at Six Flags Great Adventure in 2017.

 

JUSTICE LEAGUE™: Battle for Metropolis – New High-Tech 4D Thrill Ride

This summer, we’ll introduce JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis, a high-tech, innovative new ride experience at the park. You’ll embark on a multi-sensory 4D adventure to rescue your favorite Super Heroes from the evil villains. Armed with a laser gun and real-time gaming elements, you’ll blast the targets on screen to earn points. You’ll pass high-resolution video graphics, custom-designed animatronics, special effects like fire and fog, and one of the first-ever virtual loops!

 

A New Heroic Gift Shop

With the introduction of our new 4D attraction, we’ll also open the doors to a new retail store with all your favorite JUSTICE LEAGUE gifts. Soon you’ll be able to find T-shirts, sweatshirts, candy, keychains, magnets, stuffed toys, and more all themed after your favorite Super Heroes and villains.

 

Boardwalk Steak & Fries – Air-Conditioned Restaurant

We’re opening a brand new shore-themed eatery, Boardwalk Steak & Fries, located in the Boardwalk section of the park. This new dining location serves chicken and beef cheesesteaks, chicken tenders, French fries, and ice cold drinks. You’ll be able to use your Season Dining Pass at this new air-conditioned restaurant.

 

ICEE – A New Line of Frozen Drinks

This year we’re debuting a new line of frozen drinks in the park. You’ll be able to pick up ICEE beverages in all kinds of delicious flavors. ICEE will be available in kiddie and regular sizes, plus a souvenir cup to get cold refills all summer. ICEE will be more accessible than ever before with nine locations throughout the park!

 

Exclusive Park Merchandise

We’re introducing new retail items you won’t find anywhere else! This spring, enjoy an exclusive theme park T-shirt – Pass Holders will get special discounts. Throughout the year we’ll also unveil specialty crew sweaters, water resistant pouches, character hats, and limited edition WONDER WOMAN™ movie capes!

 

A New Way to Collect Park Photos

Our new Picture Passes let you collect all your park photos and access them anywhere. Add unlimited Main Gate, character, and ride photos from the entire day or season to create a digital scrapbook of your time at the park, including photos from Kingda Ka, El Toro, Nitro, GREEN LANTERN, Log Flume, and Safari Off Road Adventure. You may also get discounts on photos and a free print with purchase.

Oh sure, but ever since they somehow deleted an entire kids area from their ride lineup and had a ton of coding errors and pages that didn't display or even exist on their HITP page and had placeholder text go live on the home page for weeks at a time I just sort of learned to ignore their awful website entirely. They really need to spend the money on a competent web team.

Yeah, good point. Or as Six Flags would say, [i Like Theme Parks. Agrees Text]

^No, they're actually doing an event Holiday In The Par. It's a golf tournament. I can't wait!

The cost for entry is free with the purchase of a season pass, and for every stroke under par you are, SFA will plant a tree with your name on a plaque at the base right next to a Snickers ad.
