  1. Once again I am truly impressed with how Six Flags (and Great Adventure in particular) has lead the theme park industry on how to be creative and how to operate a park safely during this crazy pandemic. When most other parks have thrown in the towel, Great Adventure has forged ahead and thought outside of the box on how they can keep us entertained this year. Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience is another example of this!

  3. Hello everyone! Yesterday was a fun day at the park with fantastic weather (around mid-60s) and relatively short wait times. My mother and I entered the park around 1:30 and first went on Justice League, which had literally just opened up (we were 2nd train of the day). Next was Wonder Woman (20 minute wait including a fast recovery from technical difficulties) then the Dark Knight -with no pre-show and partially in the light due to the necessary ventilation, which was interesting. I was able to get a good look at the Jersey Devil from the footbridge connecting Safari Kids and LT Seaport. Ther

  6. El Toro isn’t going anywhere. It’s the park’s most critically acclaimed ride and it always has a line.

  7. I think the high maintenance leaders are: KIngda Ka Log Flume Underutilized: Jolly Roger Tango Bizarro (I can see this rotating to another park) Aged: Parachutes Sky Ride Also, being able to gather revenue on this one once again puts it at risk: Safari Off Road Adventure I'd be most upset to see the removal of the Log Flume, Sky Ride, or Parachutes.

  11. This is the perfect addition for the situation the park is in. COVID Cases are spiking, and I’m going to guess attendance is down from a normal Holiday in the Park. It worked for the Safari, and it’s going to work for the theme park. Years down the line, this entire season is going to make for one hell of a spotlight!

  13. Personally, I think it could mean one of two things: 1st: it could be an announcement for Jersey Devil continuing construction. The riddle says “We will spread some cheer about a new addition here” and DIRE unscrambled could mean ride. Jersey Devil is a new addition coming to the park, so maybe the announcement could be that Jersey Devil Coaster is continuing vertical construction again! 2nd: Holiday in the Park will have a new ride open for the event! The riddle as a whole is very holiday themed, and the scramble mentions “a new addition”, which could be a new ride open

  17. I've noticed that they now have been decorating Bugs Bunny national Park. During Hallowfest it was called Corn stalk national Park, and now its going to be called and decorated as Wild Lights national Park. could be a throwback to Winter Lights but with no drive through.

  18. Is Buccaneer Battle popular? I would imagine there must have been issues with the ride's operations or popularity which prompted Six Flags not to install the same ride at other parks. I know River Battle at Dollywood was one of their shorter-lived rides and when I saw it at the park in 2009 it didn't look too exciting.

  19. There IS a crane over by JDC! Looks similar to the one they used back in March & April for vertical construction as well!

  20. UPDATE: I am hearing rumblings that a large gray crane is on site near the JDC crows nest and can reportedly be seen from Prospertown Lake. I intend to visit the site of JDC today to confirm whether this is true or not and hopefully grab some photos if a crane is in fact there. Stay tuned!

  21. It depends where you sit. I find the rear of the cars on El Toro to be teeth rattling rough, while the front of the cars to be fairly smooth. Also ET is a major PITA to ride with the ultra strict no articles policy and ultra slow dispatches. However, I doubt it will be removed anytime soon unless the park lets it decay badly like with RT.

  24. This is one of the cars from Traffic Jam/Autobahn, I guess these operated for about 27 years. https://www.facebook.com/ridesmuseum/photos/a.520730324728161/2071471329654045

  25. With the news of Six Flags removing 15 rides across the chain, I uploaded some footage of this ride from a few weeks ago in case it gets the AX. Hopefully that is not the case.

  26. Why would you remove El Toro? It's typically a rated as a top 5 coaster in the world.

  27. I am just hoping it’s not another bloodbath like when Shapiro came in and removed eleven rides in his first three years from Great Adventure alone.

  28. Is Goliath down a lot or just not popular? I always enjoyed that model ride. I’ve never been on the ride at SFNE but did ride it at SFGAm and SFOG.

  31. My guess would be Twister. I hope nothing is from Great Adventure but if it does happen, that the removal is not a rare ride like the parachutes or Skyway.

  32. Six Flags resumed construction on Tsunami Surge at SFGAm last week, hopefully that means Jersey Devil construction will start soon.

  34. I was assigned to work this attraction one day when the Parachutes were closed for high winds. I had just bought a decent pair of sunglasses (the best minimum wage could buy) and I only owned them for a few hours before a kid I was assisting up the net destroyed them by ripping them off my face. I remained very professional and guided him to the slides. Although deep inside, I wanted to shove him so hard he would have shot out like a bullet from that tube!

  36. When I worked on the Parachute ride in 1985 we always use to go and fill up our Igloo drink cooler with ice and cold water at the Bratwurst Stand. Food Service workers didn't man the stand until about 11AM so we filled it ourselves and being the stand was open-air the first few seasons we always had access to inside the stand. One day, to our surprise, the food team from the night before forget to remove the beer tap handles and shut off the kegs. We were half-tempted to fill the cooler with beer and have an exciting day at the parachutes. We didn't do it though, and opted for boring ice w

  39. That one was really neat but not the one I was talking about. The one I found was the introduction to Lighting loops. it was just after the ride opened and no one yet knew that after going through it all, it did it again backwards. I saw that commercial and immediately mowed every lawn in the neighborhood to have the money to go ride lighting loops.

  41. I think I have discovered the first photo I have run across that shows a guest going down the center front stairs of the Fort while exiting the Sky Ride! (left side of the picture) The picture was taken in the spring of 1978.

  42. what a HUGE disappointment. And calling it a coaster, what a JOKE. Its a glorified looking carnival ring of fire. And the GP aren't stupid, they know a ring of fire, that they can ride at every carnival, is NOT a coaster.
