Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Sorta impromptu pop over to the park tonight. Was there from 7-9 and it was dead. As we approached from the lot it was a stream of hundreds and hundreds of similarly-dressed school kids all leaving. We were cackling like maniacs at such a delightful sight. Made time for a beverage @ Ale House, a two train wait for row 1 on The Bull and then musical-chair'd a lap on row 17 (how can a wood coaster be this old and still perfectly smooth), stopped for some of Flags' World Famous Fingers & Fries (f*ckin yum) and washed it all down with a free water, followed by a row 9 lap on Nitro (haulin and ballin), then finished up with a row 1 and then row 8 lap on Batman. Fantastic! Gorgeous weather, all rides running in top summer form. Crews were great. Nice little end-of-week stress buster.

Dark Knight coaster is a hidden gem I always look forward too. Yes, it is JUST a wild mouse, but I was pleasantly surprised at the level and quality of theming put in to this (and last, I rode it 2017 - most of the effects appeared to still be working).

 

And never do I skip Houdini. Never.

Is it sad that the main reason I get excited to visit Great Adventure is for Zumanjaro...?

 

No, because its awesome.

 

I love that I can go there for two hours and not even think about or care about or even really look in the direction of the worlds tallest coaster/drop ride and still have an amazing evening. Not saying I don't like them, just that we're beyond spoiled.

 

My only regret about last night is not riding Bizarro.

It was pretty light crowd-wise during the day yesterday as well. Even with all the school kids, my longest wait was about 25 mins for the flume. Coaster wise, the longest wait I had was for Batman, surprisingly.

Was at the park tonight. Was a bit weary because it was Saturday and a nice day, but the park wasn't that bad at all. There's nothing really more I have to add besides the fact that Nitro was running extremely smooth. Dare I say, smoother than I remember in recent years, it was also HAULING as well. I was getting FLUNG out (Row 9, right seat) of my seat on the airtime hills.

 

Wonder Woman was testing all day and night. It is absolutely HUMONGOUS in person. Pictures do not do it justice. It's also eerily silent too.

 

Enjoy these two photos I snapped

Wonder Woman looks to be very similar to Riddler at SFoT, which I got to ride last weekend. Awesome ride. Every park should have one of these giant frisbees. I normally get queasy on spinning rides, but those don't bother me at all. Just pure fun.

Probably a novice question, but one I’ve completely forgotten to ask, does this park have bins at most rides (minus the three earlier mentioned coasters I believe) for bags and cups what not? I know it varies from park to park. Darien Lake for example is much better in my opinion when I have a bag to store all my things in, whereas Cedar Point for example is a no bag park for me because of how many rides are “put it in a locker or leave with a non rider”

They have holders for souvenir cups, though they’re frequently stolen from the holders.

 

Bags are not allowed in the queue for any major coaster. Cell phones and keys are not allowed in line for Joker, El Toro or Kingda Ka.

Looks like its zippered pockets and lockers for me then!

 

One more question because I would hate to find out when we get there that I understood it wrong. Is the 50% off tickets for friends discount limited to one friend per visit? I feel like it has a limit of 4 but as I looked at it in member services it seems to refer to the discount in a singular fashion.

 

Honestly my hope is to get at least two of the three folks I'm bringing gold plus passes so that they arent always waiting for bring a friend days at our home park to go (plus fright fest, because they like that), but if I cant convince them to pay $7 a month, I'm sure they'd much rather pay $35 for a ticket over $70. Especially since we're going to be there for two days.

Are you referring to the Diamond Elite 50% discount? Because if so, the Terms and Conditions say it's unlimited use and may be used every time you visit.

^ Indeed I am, but it also says "Why would you ever visit the park alone when you can bring your best friend for 50% off the adult general admission price EVERY time you visit?" and "Tell them you are a Diamond Elite Member and you have a friend with you who needs a ticket. They will sell you a regular, general admission ticket good for that day for 50% off the regular adult general admission price."

 

For me I'm reading into the emphasis on the singular "friend" and "ticket" - I was almost wondering if anyone had done it yet to know if it really is unlimited or if I'm correct in interpreting their language as "singular use per visit, but you can use it every visit"

That part is irrelevant, a cross between advertising and instructions. The Terms and Conditions are what's important. They say unlimited use, every visit. If you go on the desktop site, you can pre-purchase the discounted day tickets there, no need to even go to the booth. Once you get one in the cart, you can modify it to the amount you need.

^ You mention being able to buy discounted tickets online but upon checking most all of the ticket page, the accesso pop up and the membership portal I see no reference to that at all. Do you have a link or helpful tip to get to that area of the website?

It's on the Member Services Online page - https://mypass.sixflags.com/displaybenefits.aspx

 

Once you login here, it's under the Current & Future Benefits. Sort it so that it only brings up "Admissions" and to show those that are "Valid Today", "Within 2 Wks" and "After 2 Weeks" and it should list the discounted gate tickets belowall the BAFF coupons, using the same green icon as the BAFF coupons on the left, "50% Off Tickets for Friends" in the middle and the "Buy Online" link on the right.
