My thoughts...

1. Zuminjaro(sp)
2. Kingda ka
3. El Toro
4. Superman

I am going by what I think will have the longest lines. Another option is the safari if they accept the skip the lines passes.


Longest I ever waited for Zum... is about 25 minutes. Don't waist a pass on that.

^ Yup, me too, and that was its first year of operation. I don't think I've seen a wait longer than a couple ride cycles since then. Save the pass for Kingda Ka or Superman, both of which can be slow-moving depending on operations.

Not sure if anyone has posted about this but this looks like two cyborgs together... http://ride-engineers.com/stormforce-20/

This one is made by RES WillTec and is still in prototype stages.

Would someone be able to please share a list of the “Bring a Friend” days for Great Adventure? I think they might vary some by pass/membership type but guessing the Gold pass may be the most common schedule. I’m planning on taking a trip there over a Friday/Saturday at some point this summer, and hoping if possible to at least avoid Bring a Friend free days. Thanks!

Will be going to the park for the first time in 10 years this Friday. How busy is the park usually on last Friday's in June. Def want to get at least 10 rides on Nitro and Toro. Not afraid to get gold flash pass if necessary. Opinions?

It's impossible to predict crowds at this park. Be ready to buy it, but wait until you get there.

I always buy it at this park. Every time I go the lines are at least 30 minutes for the more popular coasters.

It worth getting the platinum flash or the gold enough?

^ You should absolutely wait until you arrive at the park to determine if you should get Flash Pass at all. Buying in advance is terribly bad advice. Bill is right, you cannot predict crowd levels at this park (unless of course its like a nice crisp fall Saturday during Fright Fest, you'll want to die without one). Nevertheless, the park rarely if ever sells out of Flash Pass so you can wait and make your decision based on how bad the waits are when you arrive (or soon after).

Gold FP can get the job done if you time it right and reserve your next ride as soon as you scan into your current ride, don't wait until the ride is over! If you do this correctly you won't have to wait for anything all day. If you don't feel like worrying about that and can afford Platinum go for it and do whatever the f*ck you want as you won't have to wait for a thing.

I went to this park July 5th last year, and was able to ride everything I wanted to, and El Toro over and over, and still left the park a few hours early. So definitely wait until you get to the park before buying any Flash Pass, because there's a decent chance you won't need it at all.
