    Am I even shocked that you said this?

    Whatever we get... let's just all agree to not be like the people on FB complaining about getting a giga coaster right now.

    Boring. Under the lake is where it's at.

    Hey guys, I was just at the park and went over to the Seaport area, and found some guys surveying the location. I asked the guy in the green vest if there will be a roller coaster coming here. He said yes right off the bat, but did not specify what kind. So yes, pretty much confirmed the attraction will be a coaster.

    Personally, I think the guy in the video is Six Flags Fun

    I think if we get a coaster in the Seaport Congo area I think it would be the perfect time to give Congo the TLC it deserves. Congo deserves some new theming and rock work. It would be great to have the waterfalls working again with some new elements like tribe heads that shoot water out randomly. It would be great to have some interaction with the new coaster maybe like a dive under Congo and on to the island in the middle of Congo ( I don’t know how possible this is but it seems cool). I would want the park to add bamboo around the ride if it does go on the island to make it seem mysterious. I want Congo to have a stronger theme with more presence then what is currently their. Great Adventure has the perfect opportunity to bring new life into an older ride.

    What do you think they did with El Diablo? Or back then, Looping Dragon?

    Addition to my above comment: i truly believe for the first time in roughly 10 years, Six Flags GADV has listened to its fans and for once is following through with something huge and they know the enthusiast are the ones driving this “ground up coaster” concept. So why not actually make a hint inside of the hint for enthusiasts letting us know they hear us? It’s not too far fetched

    If it turns out to be a RMC Raptor or Trex, you HAVE to record your reaction to finding out and post it here for us all we deserve this after this thread

    It would Be Mayhem. Even worse if it was a smaller-scale Flat Ride.

    Ideally, if the LTSP/Safari Kids area is going to be home to a new coaster, it would be great to see the rides relocated to the lakefront area between BBNP and Joker. That would really spruce things up and mean the kids stuff is all centrally located again. The setting under the trees back there would be nice for the kids stuff. That would really open the area for a new coaster and redevelopment. The park could really use a big new coaster as well as an updated kids area, and this would fix both.

    The Smiler has 14 inversions, not 12. I do not think that whatever coaster is coming to Great Adventure will go for this record.

    At this point we'd all be real disappointed if its not a coaster... just remember the weird teasing they did for El Diablo

    Just a heads up, the el Diablo statue is still onsite....it was NOT relocated

    The space is planned to be utilized immediately as from what we’ve seen from Maser’s employees on site, as well as the multiple markers.

    Along with that, the trees in the background look like pine barrens, which is where the Jersey Devil can be found. A lot of little things, such as 666, which can be found in the first tweet GADV released regarding 2020, and the legends & myths that clue #1 mentioned, line up to the 2020 attraction being themed to the Jersey Devil. That also would explain why they kept the El Diablo Statue.

    That honestly makes the Jersey Devil theme a lot more likely to come into fruition. If this attraction is themed to an evil character and is also themed based on the parks location, it will likely be a massive addition in my opinion.

    I also spotted Yellow, Pink and Orange markers behind Road Runner Railway & Taz Tornado. Here’s a picture of the pink one (obviously couldn’t film during the rides).

    I was also thinking that it could be used for a haunted attraction during Fright Fest.

    ^ Probably for a prop for Fright Fest. Not a ride. Most likely new coaster will be themed to DC Comics IP.

    I was thinking the red flame/smoke background could be hinting at something too but I thought that was reading too far into it. Maybe...

    Screamscape accurately reported both RMC Raptor clones in 2018 before they were announced, so this information seems promising. This is quite exciting! An RMC at Six Flags Great Adventure, pipe dreams do come true. It does seem a little too early for the T-Rex, because Schilke had mentioned that RMC wanted to sell several raptors before moving forward with the larger model. If it is a Raptor, I hope they work out the comfort issues with the restraints. I personally wish they could find a way to just instate the conventional RMC lap bars, but the shoulder straps seemed to be a necessity with the restraint design on the other single rails.

    I went back to Dorney on Monday to see the Grand Carnivale Parade. It was less crowded than my trip to the park last week. Before the parade there are music performances throughout the Grand Carnivale area and some other small shows including an acrobat. The parade starts in Camp Snoopy, goes to the main midway, goes around the carousel and back down the main midway. I was originally going to watch the parade near the carousel but decided to go to Camp Snoopy where it was much less crowded and I was able to leave before most people and not deal with any traffic leaving the park. There are lots of bead necklaces thrown, enough for anyone who wants them to be able to get them. I thought the parade was very good especially for a regional park but I preferred Glow in the Park slightly more. Ride Count: Water Slides, 16 Lazy River, 1 Thunder Canyon, 1 White Water Landing, 1 Thunder Creek Mountain, 1 Talon, 1 Hydra, 1 Steel Force, 1 Wild Mouse, 1 When I see Haunt construction, I know it means the end of the water park season will be here soon.

    The "252" teaser seen at the park is speculated as representing the first comic that Supergirl was introduced in - thus likely indicating a Zamperla Endeavour. I don't think that your reasoning is enough to believe there will be a new coaster. When I visited in 2018, my impression was that they would need to remove an attraction to even find the space for a new major addition, without having to clear trees.

    It's just that one water pillar in the middle? I thought the whole pool was going to be surrounded with those pillars, looks pretty barebones compared to the announcement images.

    This is sort of off topic, but it’d sure be nice for the park to add something like the museum they had for the 40th season, but instead have it open year round and consistently update it. The museum was so well done and I feel like many parks have something that showcases it’s history, so why not make a whole store like the museum. Perhaps they could make it like Universal’s Prop Shop and sell certain items. They could always use the abandoned paintball building for it.

    That’s why I was thinking Swamp Thing, it’s legendary, monstrous, and a DC Comics property.

    All of those sound pretty good, I wouldn’t mind if the park took an off year all together just to repaint and restore a lot of the coasters like new.

    Great report. Sounds like it was a good trip to both parks. It's surprising that Clementon Park has no water fountains.

    One time last season on Roaring Rapids, I was on a raft that had a obnoxious group of spazes. It almost seemed like something was wrong with them as they really carried on during the whole rides. They kept shaking the center railing hub alot and really hard. They were bending the center hub so much that it really looked like they were going to crack it off, maybe they were trying to? It was the worse group of people I ever rode with on Roaring Rapids.
