Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Ugh, so annoying. This is all new to me, this wasn't an issue 2 years ago. Anyone know what's caused this reaction parks? For all my life leaving stuff in bins in the station worked just fine. Was there an accident(s) or some event that caused em to no longer do this?

 

Well I travel light at parks. Cell phone, wallet and keys are often all I'll carry. Seems I can keep these in a zipped pocket, which I always wear to parks now, so hopefully no issue and I wont need lockers.

Sadly true. And so fu*ing annoying. . . Let's make you pay to rent a locke.r even though you have everything stowed away in a zipper pocket. #Annoying

Went on both just a few weeks ago with all of the following on my person:

 

2 wallets

Plenty of keys

2 mobiles phones

Pack of smokes

2 lighters

Pair of glasses

Bunch of coins

 

Some things were in zippered/buttoned jacket pockets, but most were just in un-fastened jeans pockets. Don't give the kids working the entrance gate reason to pay attention and they won't stop you. SFGAdv hasn't instituted metal detectors like Universal or Morey's (yet).

False.

 

I did nothing to cause them to suspect me, or pay attention to me, and I still got a full pat down from the security officer at the front of El Toro.

Whoa whoa whoa... patdown? That's the first I've heard of that. I have heard plenty of locals complaining of them practically interrogating people but patdowns? WTF.

I had made it past the entrance and the security card was yelling at me "SIR. STOP. WHAT IS IN YOUR POCKET?" I assumed he was talking about my not secured zipper pocket. Because I'm not use to zipper pockets being an issue. So I said "Nothing." He then had me stand to the side, and had another security officer come over, who gave me a weird patdown, and found the items in my pocket. They asked me what it was, I said my phone and car key. They removed them from my pocket, and one of them escorted me to the lock.er where he waited till I purchased a lock.er, and put my items in the lock.er, and then I was allowed to return to the line. Seriously one of the most annoying things I've ever dealt with at a park.

 

On a side note... The patdown made me feel like a criminal!!! Good things wasn't a hottie, or things could have gotten really awkward really fast.

Good! It'll be gone LONG before I get there! (I know it would've been optional anyway, but it's nice to know operations won't be any slower due to it when I am there - and nice to know no spiders will leak out of neighboring headsets onto me while riding! )

Something tells me we'll see it moved to something else. A tie-in for July 4th weekend? Please don't let it be Nitro.

Wait, what? Why would they implement it for only a month? Didnt it require the construction of a storage area and charging bays?

 

Ill be in the park tomorrow to give it a try.

 

Anyone know if its running all day or just 3pm and later (as seen in a picture earlier in this thread).

Probably a bit of both.

 

I definitely don't see this going on Ka or Toro but there have been mumblings about it going on Nitro since well before they actually implemented it on Skull Mountain. Now, don't get all fired up, just rumors, and I have not confirmed anything about Nitro getting it but locals and people connected to the park have mentioned it to me many times since the park was first rumored to get VR at all. With it leaving Zum so quickly I could see these rumors as possibly plausible (and they are nothing but rumors so chill yall!).

 

I personally think Bizarro is the next BEST attraction @ the park to get VR. Its high capacity when the ops hustle and it could certainly use a popularity boost. Also you don't have to walk to Guam to get to it. In a perfect world it would go on Green Lantern so I don't have to be concerned with it at all. In any case, the park isn't done with VR, that I'm practically certain of. It's just too cheap a gimmick for Six Flags to not continue utilizing it.

I would hope so, and who knows maybe you are right, but its Six Flags. With so many other parks/chains getting it or at least experimenting with it I'd imagine SF would want to stay in the game. I feel like they're still figuring it out, or even just moving it around to different attractions because its just such a cheap and easy thing to use for marketing purposes.

I'm going to guess it's because... People aren't jumping on this VR hype train like the park was hoping for.

 

Now it's just like an old hooker: It was fun at first... but it's played out, doesn't work all that great, and no one wants to give it a try.

Of course I can't find it now, but for some reason I remember reading somewhere when it was announced that the VR was only supposed to be from May 5th to June 4th when it came out. Of course, not being able to find it probably means I'm completely wrong on that...

 

Still, my gut tells me that it was only intended to be around for a month or so. I can't imagine they decided to pull the plug sooner than expected unless there was a significant-enough issue behind it.
