  1. It looks amazing! I love how sleek the track looks, and that dive loop looks tall! Maybe almost the same height as Batman? This ride is going to pack a punch!
  2. How many meters long is the Power Loop? I think they could definitely fit it in, I can see an angle which wouldn't touch Batman's corkscrew, and could make it further than the bottom of the picture that I showed. The track would have to extend past the bottom right of the red rectangle that I provided.
  3. Not that I think this is coming in 2021, but I hope that maybe in the future, a Mack Rides "Power Loop" will be brought to Great Adventure. It would work so well in the Metropolis section. Maybe it could replace the Batman Stunt Arena and run between Batman: the Ride and Wonder Woman? It just looks so awesome! There is plenty of room if they decided to gut the Batman Stunt Arena. If necessary (since it's a skinny footprint), one of the spikes could go further back behind Mama Flora's Grill and next to the first corkscrew of Batman?
  4. I love to see RMC making minor improvements for our version! I also read on Reddit (someone had commented) that the wheel axes have been updated from the previous models to be more articulated, hopefully indicating that these trains will navigate the track even better than the first two Raptors! Does anyone know if the station will include a moving loading platform (similar to WW: GLC)? I am really hoping for that, I think it would make the lines move a lot more efficiently and keep the queue moving.
  5. I think 2021 will be the Bugs Bunny Boomtown and DC Super Friends addition - but can't say for sure. The kids' areas are in major need of an overhaul, and this would solve that issue. But who knows? It might just be a flat ride.
  6. Did you miss the part where I said riders were getting friction burns and bruises? I'm pretty sure it depends on your body type. I was told that the straps can squeeze into your shoulder blades, especially with the way the ride whips and changes direction.
  7. Any idea on whether the restraints will resemble the prototype Raptors? I recall seeing those dastardly collars in the animation, from what I heard they were necessary due to the Raptor's forces, but also left some friction burns and bruises on riders. I really was hoping for a modified train that prioritized comfort while of course still being 100% safe.
  8. At first I was underwhelmed, this layout made X-Flight look like a long ride. But then I looked at the aerial of X-Flight and compared it. They look relatively similar in length, but X-Flight is about 20 feet taller. I hope that KD brings back the loop, and final helix, to "complete" the layout. As it stands, it's just a drop (counts as an inversion) and then four back-to-back inversions with a single helix included.
  9. Will the Diamond Elite skip-the-line passes work for Jersey Devil when it opens in 2020? Or do those not work on new attractions?
  10. It would be nice to eventually see a DC-skinned version of West Coast Racers for the park, maybe as the "Riddler & Two Face: Street Race" as people had predicted or the 2020 addition. It could occupy the Batman Stunt Arena space, and the queue could be located near Wonder Woman. That would add another coaster to Movie Town, and be an homage to the Chiller.
  11. I'd love to see this happen. However, from what I have heard the Zamperla Air Race is supposedly more expensive than the Zamperla Giga Discovery (not sure if this is true, I don't have evidence). That makes me think it would be a stand-alone addition. Also, I don't know if PowerSplash would be in back to back years with a Premier Rides coaster(s). What I love is that you have included the 30M Larson Super Loop. I think it would be great to bring that back to the park as the bigger version, and it would ease the burn if it was encompassed in a flat package (so that we don't feel "jipped" of a year's addition, having recently added a Larson Super Loop and losing it).
  12. I agree with this. I know the idea was circulated that Fiesta Texas would become the new favorite of the chain (i.e. the testing ground for the latest and greatest of the theme park industry), but it's apparent that corporate has a close eye on Great Adventure. The long period of mainly flat rides at Great Adventure, which I refer to as the "flat ride renaissance", was absolutely necessary and should continue. The coaster collection at the park is already extremely strong, and it's great that Six Flags pours a variety of flats in to round-out the park. For 2021, I think that the kids' area is a vital necessity. JDC stands at the top of the thrill list for a new addition, and now its time to focus on the lower-end of the thrill list, because families are important as consumers (and to the success of the park). More flats would be welcomed past 2021; the Funtime Booster, a Zamperla Air Race, and a Zamperla Endeavor would be great additions to the park. Perhaps the park could get a flat-ride package, in the likes of what SFOT had done in 2016 when they received three wonderful flat rides (Catwoman Whip, Harley Quinn: Spinsanity, The Riddler Revenge). I also hope that Great Adventure will be the recipient of a Mack PowerSplash in the future. JDC really lifted my spirits, and I think that the future is bright for Great Adventure.
  13. I hope we can get a figure for how much Jersey Devil costed. I am very curious, I would guess between $8M-$10M USD, maybe a little more.
  14. I don't think so, a lot of friends of mine really disliked GL and they are not enthusiasts. It is basically the spiritual successor of GASM (RIP) which was also infamous among the GP as an uncomfortable, painful ride. I don't ride it often, but lately the line has always been very short for me whenever I go to ride it. Has anyone waited a long time for GL in recent years?
  15. I think it is overshadowed by the top dogs of the park, and it doesn't help that all the other B&Ms are very comfortable at Great Adventure. I agree it's a neat novelty, and while I generally just try and endure the pain on rides for the sake of fun, I don't feel the need to hit up Green Lantern every visit. The headbanging gets me pretty badly, but I have not ridden the other stand-ups. I have heard people rant and rave about Georgia Scorcher and Riddler's Revenge. Vortex at Carowinds on the other hand has awful reviews, I would say the worst I've heard of the stand-ups.
