  1. Woah there, why this mention of Ka and Zu removal. I know you didn't mean in the imminent future, but I see the park working hard to keep both open for as long as possible. It's the crowned jewel of the park in terms of branding, even though El Toro is the enthusiast magnet. The Zamperla Big WaveZ is an interesting concept; it's basically a mini drop tower into a splash zone? That would be a neat successor to Twister (especially since they seem to share the same footprint), I just hope it would be as thrilling of a ride experience. The splash zone would be interactive,
  2. I have a lot on my wishlist for Great Adventure. Hopefully they get around to repainting Nitro. As far as new additions, here are some that I think are realistic and would fit the park: Intamin LSM Vertical Coaster Premier Rides Multilaunch Coaster S&S Screamin' Swing S&S Axis Coaster Mack/Intamin Powersplash/Gigasplash Zamperla Super Air Race (Dare Devil Dive at SFFT) These additions are based on which companies the park/chain have worked with in the past. My dream addition would be a 300 ft.+ B&M dive coaster, that would finally give the pa
  3. Cancel! Unless they want to do it that badly. Fright Fest is generally extremely crowded...like unbearably crowded (multiple hour queues for the coasters). It doesn't sound fun or reasonable, but I really am holding hope for HITP (especially next year when Jersey Devil joins the cast ).
  4. I had heard that they navigate the track different, in a more "smooth" fashion and that it feels like the train is gliding through transitions. I'm not exactly sure and would like to know more, but this is what I was told regarding Steel Vengeance and Twisted Timbers trains.
  5. Can anyone explain how the gen 2 hybrid "swing axle" trains are? How do you think this will affect the ride of JDC versus how Railblazer and Wonder Woman are?
  6. Since JDC isn't going to be ready until 2021, even if the park were to close for the rest of 2020 I don't think it'd be such a big deal (there aren't any "new" experiences to miss out on). Honestly it would probably be safer for the public. The Safari being drive-thru seems like a good enough replacement in the time being. I am quite excited for 2021 now, it gives something to look forward to! A movie franchise I really like also pushed back their film to 2021 (Halloween Kills), so now I have JDC and the movie to look forward to next year.
  7. Not sure if anyone else went this weekend, but I went on Friday. It didn't feel safe whatsoever. Parents pushing little children around in strollers (seemed like a horrible idea to expose your kid to a venue like this, but not my call), people not wearing masks & taking them off, social distancing definitely was NOT followed. And the worst part, was that the queues were filling up and people weren't even concerned with following the stickers on the floor. The trains were literally being sent out with sometimes 6 people on them... Nitro had 4 rows being used, 5 were empty each c
  8. Yeah the addition of JDC really adds another top-tier attraction to the park. I think El Toro, Nitro and JDC are a very strong collection of coasters (and all from different manufacturers), & this doesn't even include the KK/Zumanjaro duo that further elevates Great Adventure. Plus with all the supporting B&Ms and flats, Great Adventure is sitting comfortably with a strong repertoire of rides. I'm trying not to focus on another park getting the same ride, but if it's a modified layout, it kind of reminds me of Viper/Scream Machine/Shockwave. They all were very similar Arrow
  9. I don't think it matters too much if it becomes a clone. I believe only the more prioritized Six Flags parks will receive it anyways, the same way the Giga Discovery went to fewer parks. Plus the theme will be unique at least. This layout would become the best clone at a Six Flags park, most likely even better than the Batman clones. I wonder what the next coaster at Great Adventure would be though. It would likely be a custom creation, since there isn't much else to clone (unless Six Flags starts cloning the S&S Axis Coaster).
  10. According to recently leaked information on coaster forums, Six Flags Magic Mountain will be getting something similar to JDC in 2021.
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
