Six Flags Great Adventure (SFGAdv) Discussion Thread

"I don't know if I can justify going to Great Adventure because a ride may not be open" and "I'm prioritizing Nick Universe" are not two statements that usually coexist but okay.

Great Adventure's thing will not be open, but neither will Shellraiser. Plus, Sandy's Blasting Bronco is actually open right now so it's 1000% going to break again by next weekend. That's way too much time.

I am sorry if I distract from your stand up routine, but if I may ask politely, is Shellraiser down longterm? I haven't been following.

Regardless, our summer road trips are specifically about getting out to new to us parks and attractions. You could call them credit whoring trips and be 90% right. Without the new Vekoma, Great Adventure doesn't have anything new to offer us as we have been so many times. Even with the disappointment of Shellraiser being down, if it is, we would still go to Nick Universe over SFGA because going to new places and riding new to us coasters is the mission statement of these roadtrips. I'd be surprised if we weren't back for a long weekend at Great Adventure a non-credit whoring capacity within the next year or two anyway.

You're right, this is a stand up routine. My apologies. I forgot that this hobby is very serious.

You're right, I was kidding. Go to the American Dream Mall. It's great. I recommend pre-purchasing a dated "All Access Pass" ticket as it offers a full day of fun with unlimited ride access. I'd actually buy it now in case the park sells out for the day that you want. The website says that the ride will reopen on August 3rd so you should be all set.

Again, my apologies. I hope you have a great time.

Oh snap. One upside to falling out of the loop is its nice to be surprised by things again. 

Just saw a new coaster is opening (no idea when I see "2024" and its already July lol) this Flash: Vertical Velocity looks pretty cool. I reckon waits will be horrendous but just more justification to go off season weekday. I still am the resident "New Jersey person who hates Great Adventure" but they got the rides, so I drag myself once a year lol

Nothing more serious in the world. Except maybe stand up comedy, of course. And bummer on the 8/3 reopening target. That will be a big factor as we plan out our days on the fly for sure.

But, I'm guessing you're not surprised about SF's new attraction being open in July.

STL can't even get a Zamperla Discovery open by July. (or a carousel four years into refusbishment)

Great Escape damn near had its new Gravity Group open for opening day! It was just a couple weeks late. Though I am not sure that I want other parks learning how to build coasters from The Great Escape... They might, you know, just not do it at all for 20 years at a time in that case.

Maybe they were planning and rehearsing for 19 of those years, which seems to be the only way Six Flags could complete a roller coaster that quickly.

I remember when I was very little (2009, because Bizarro had just opened), I wanted to go to the park, and I read up on all the rides, whether it be on Wikipedia or the actual site. One of them was Skull Mountain, and for whatever reason the part about "A strobe light and sound effects will help you get through the ride" piqued my interest. I tried searching "Skull Mountain" on YouTube, but I couldn't spell "Mountain." Come 9 years later, and I finally got to ride on my sophomore year trip to the park. I loved it. But then I discovered the rest of the rides (thanks, Mrs. Dougherty, for making me ride Toro!) and one ride on Batman: The Ride two days after my 16th birthday set me up for life.

Casting of stones by the 21-year-old who talks to theme park characters. ??? Woah...

The satire "wtf" was half in response to your random insertion of a story and half of a statement I'd never heard before:

"A strobe light and sound effects will help you get through the ride" piqued my interest.

Chill on the coffee.
