Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Current rumor in the FB Conn is that Wonder Woman is making her delayed opening this weekend, member and passholder previews tomorrow and Saturday with a soft public opening 5 pm Saturday afternoon.

 

As this a rumor, I take no credit/blame.

Great Adventure has a strict “restrict these nuts” philosophy in regards to covid restrictions and protocols. It’s the Wild West and that should be abundantly clear by now. 😂

Wow, a trip report about Great Adventure in October and the main takeaways are long lines, pot smoke, and Toro running slow in the cold. I, for one, am completely shocked.

Just got off Wonder Woman twice in a row. So freakin’ good. Amazing addition. The speed is unreal and the airtime even better.

 

Pro tip: Sit on the side closest to Nitro (if you can) you’ll be at the top of the full swings and you maximize floatage.

Looks great. Wish I didn't have crap to do all weekend or I'd go over. Probably won't get back to the park for a few weeks. #bummertown

Anyone have any insight into how restrictive the restraints on these Giant Discoveries are? I've been doing well since switching to keto a couple weeks ago, down nearly 20lbs and exercising regularly, but I'm still weary that I need to lose more before I'll fit. I know there's a test seat, but I'm trying to save the hour trip both ways if I know I'll probably need to drop additional weight before I get close.

 

For context: at current weight, I can fit on Nitro, B&M big boy seats, Hershey Drop Towers, etc. Can't fit on non-big-boy seats, Cyborg, El Toro.

Got another 3 rides in without moving. My favorite seat is the one that faces the leg closest to Batman, every ride I was at the tippy top of the full swings.

 

Wonder Woman: 5x

 

Nitro: 1x

 

El Toro: 1x

 

Skyway: 1x

 

Now time to head back to Staten Island and go to work.

Does this one just release everyone into the ride in a giant free-for-all like New England's?

 

I really liked how the one at Over Texas gave you an assigned number so you were guaranteed to ride with your group.

Current reports are that the seats are accommodating to girthier guests as they have a hard plastic over-the-shoulder restraint with a click belt that has a bit of length on it. However, it should be noted that taller guests (six footers and above, I believe) find the hard plastic restraints uncomfortable.

It's hard to say I got on the ride right at opening this morning and they were kinda hard plastic vest like. The ride was great, awesome speed and views from almost upside down at that, but I'm only 5'9 so I can't really say how it will feel for larger guests.

I can vouch for that. Giant Discovery restraints push down on you constantly and sometimes tighten up during the ride - which makes me a little claustrophobic.

Yeah they definitely tighten during the ride, I was trying to counteract it with no luck because I’d forget to lean forward slightly. I can definitely see them being restrictive. I’m 6’1 and average build and I can see the seats are very uncomfortable (hard) and the restraints the same.

I only managed one ride on Wonder Woman and one on Nitro this morning as I had to work, but I will say facing Nitro does seem to give the best ride. When you reach full swing you are completely outward and it provides some incredible views. I'm not used to seeing great adventure upside down like that.

I agree that the Giant Discovery restraints are quite restrictive. I'm not even tall (just over 5'9") and the restraints hit my shoulders snugly. My 6'0" brother refuses to ride the ride, not because it makes him sick, but because the first time he rode it (talking about CraZanity here), the restraints pushed on his shoulders and chest so hard that he was miserable by the end of the ride. He's only 6'0" and average build.

 

I would love to ride a lap bar version of this ride someday, like the one at Liseberg.

I don’t find the tightening bad at all and the restraints don’t bother me in the slightest, but they do tighten but not by much at least on Wonder Woman.

Yea, in addition to my weight, I’m 6’0 and pretty broad-chested. It’s sounding a lot like I’m just gonna have to keep at the diet / exercise and hope for the best in a few weeks.

I’m 6’3. The restraints on these things don’t bother me in any way, shape or form.

 

Also, I’m thrilled that we have one of these now. I love New England’s and I love Crazanity.
