Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

What rides were you not allowed to stay on for rerides? The only coaster I have seen them make you walk around and not stay on is for Blackbeard's Lost Treasure train but maybe it depends on the ride op?

 

Woohoo, GAdv opening day is less than a month away! I'm considering going that day, even though last year it was a bit disappointing.

 

I remember reading about opening day last year, sounded horrible but I guess that was because of the weather. I went on Sunday of opening weekend and it was much better. Little to no waits for all coasters, it was warmer out so it wasn't too cold for the log flume and all coasters except Nitro and Bizarro were open.

 

I'm still undecided about what day to go, I am thinking Sunday might be less crowded so I might just go that day again.

That's really strange they would be inconsistent like that, I got re-rides on all of those multiple times last year from the beginning of the season all the way to my last visit at the end of October. At Batman, they were even encouraging re-rides. Hopefully this season, everyone will allow re-rides. At Dorney they make you walk around all the time, no exceptions and it is such a waste of time to exit the station, walk through the empty queue and wait for the next train.

It looks like I won't be going back to GADV until either the end of April or June since I'm down here in Orlando now. The biggest coaster park is BGA about an hour away. I do miss the coasters & parks up north. Oh well I can't complain since I can ride Disney, Universal, & Sea World rides anytime all year now Have fun opening day everyone who is going hope the weather is good for you.

Man, I didn't want to have a general thread cause I thought we're too cool for that at SFGADV. Anyways, last year for the season opener it was cold out. Weather did play a part in the day with the wind. On Dark Knight my car was used to set blocks so I had to walk off the ride. I didn't worry, I rode it later in the summer. I don't expect to have everything open Opening Day. I'm happy to feed some of my hunger for coasters and I got it. Bizarro wasn't ready, not a big deal for me. It had the Memorial Day debut.

Nice, I will take advantage of the free ticket in June, since school is still in session the park isn't that crowded during the week. I made the mistake of going on a bring a friend free day in September 2008 and on a Saturday it was jammed. Nitro was into the switchbacks, BTR was into the garden area. The only coasters with under 15 minute waits were GASM, Runaway Mine Train and Skull Mountain.

Yeah I'm saying that there is an ERT before the park opens and I want to know If anyone has ever been to that specific one.

^I think the chutes looked better when the colors agreed with GASM.

Any color other than white or red looks a bit odd for that area.

Then again, the Boardwalk theme never really stuck for the park.

 

Also, I'm very pumped for opening day! Can't wait to see Tornado later in the year.

Really hoping no flats will be removed, and Houdini should re-open again too!

Prices for The Flash Pass vary, depending on level of service and number of riders. Regular The Flash Passes are priced from $37.00 for the first person. Gold

The Flash Passes are priced from $82.00 for the first person and new for 2010, Platinum The Flash Passes are priced from $102.00 for the first person. Up to 5 extra riders, can be added to your The Flash Pass for an additional charge.

 

 

--> They actually got cheaper than initially announced. Pretty curious about how much an extra person on a gold will cost.

I have a question about the season pass discount books. I got my 2010 season pass last October but never got the book because they did not have them yet. Can I just pick it up when I come up to visit at the end of April? Also can I use the discounts from the book the day I get it for example Bring A Friend Free? One of my roommates & I are flying up (I live in Orlando now) for a weekend in April & I just want to know if I can use that to get him in or not.

^ You can pick it up at the Looney Tunes Shop or I think Season Pass processing, then exit the park with a handstamp and use the coupon book at the ticket gates. I got my coupon book in the middle of April in 2008 so I would think at the end of April it wouldn't be a problem

 

^^ It depends on crowds, so I would wait to see until you get there. I went in late June on a Wednesday last year and had very minimal waits and a flashpass wouldn't have been needed (I never use flashpass but if I were to consider it, I wouldn't have needed it that day), the only real wait was Kingda Ka at around 10 - 15 minutes. In fact, every time I have gone in June during the week it has always been very low with crowds.

Interesting they have a new Platinum Flashpass. According to the site, you can get 2 rides at once with it. I wonder how that will be handled, especially at the rides that merge at the station. I also hope they still allow re-rides for everyone when there is no line since it could be confusing if they allow both Platinum users and everyone else to have re-rides, but I guess on days when lines are that short hardly anyone would be using Platinum in the first place.

Does anyone who has attended or heard about one of the past Coaster Celebrations know if it's worth the $30? If a lot of people attend, it seems like the ERT would be more crowded than the lines normally. I have a season pass, but two hours of ERT on Nitro until midnight sounds great.

I know either last year or the year before they cancelled it at the last minute due to weather even though it had stopped storming or raining by the time the event was supposed to start. I think another year (2006 or 2007?) there was another issue.

 

If you have a season pass and can get to the park on a Friday night, Coasters After Dark is always very empty and close to ERT type lines and there it is free for season pass holders (the park is just open for passholders unless they let the physics day kids also stay). I just looked at my ride count and got 24 rides (including 10 on Nitro) last year and 27 in 2008, both times I was at the event from the beginning to closing so 5 hours. It's probably either April 30th or May 7th this year.
