Justice League: Battle for Metropolis to Debut in 2017 at SFGA

Recommended Posts

Zumanjaro didn't open until the 4th of July back in 2014. Don't know if that's the latest opening, but it is pretty darn late for a new attraction.

Volcano the Blast Coaster at Kings Dominion didn't open until August 3, 1998. Falcon's Fury at Busch Gardens Tampa I believe didn't open until around Labor Day weekend.

It is possible that we will have the same for Justice League, it looks to me that there is still a lot of work to be done. I've seen an amazing amount of work done quickly at locations that I have worked at. I have gone in and was shocked that construction was done on time but I think in this case it will be late June or early July before it JL: opens. For starts, do we know what the anticipated opening date was? Maybe it is on track and on time.

I think it's coming along quickly. They showed the ride testing (in some basic state) on Snapchat weeks ago.

And don't forget Gale Force still isn't open :P

You could say the Gondola. It was added to the 1975 map but didn't open until 1977.

 

I have a feeling Justice League will open quicker than Chiller or the Gondola.

 

I am going to put my money on the weekend before the 4th of July. Fingers crossed

Saw a Billboard on the Turnpike in Newark Promoting Battle for Metropolis, very misleading as if the ride is open. Forgot what it said, will try to look again tonight.

Like a movie opening at a bad time of year, opening an attraction late in the season does not help ticket sales, especially season passes.

 

Similar to a bad sports team that turns into a good team late in the year, it doesn't really help season ticket sales until the next season.

I had the pleasure of going inside the Justice League ride building today and watch the cars circulate as testing continues. I know it has taken what seems forever for Great Adventure to get a dark ride but good things come to those that wait and it appears we have a genuine winner coming our way!

I'm gonna guess like the weekend of June 10th. Seems fitting.

Ok, I checked out the Billboard, they are advertising on three electronic changing Billboards along the New Jersey Turnpike, 106.1 North in Newark, 108.9 North Eastern Spur in Jersey City and 112.3 South Eastern Spur in Secaucus. Took Some Pictures in the closed roadway the other Night but they didn't come out well in the Dark. They Read "Coming Soon, Justice League, Battle for Metropolis, Ride Play Triumph" Batman is on the Left Side and Joker is on the Right Side.

I am going to try to put together an official trip report tonight. Here are some photos to hold you guys over!

 

The Hall of Justice looks even bigger in person.

Outside, there will be a couple of queue switchbacks before heading into the Hall.

Indoor queue number one:

And indoor queue number two where you pick up your 3D glasses:

The new ride vehicles look really cool. So Disney and Universal-like!

For all you tech geeks, here is the track layout and monitoring systems. Plenty of cameras throughout so no shenanigans!

The sign looks great. Simple but grand.

 

I skipped over the interior shots after the queue. I'm going to with and enjoy it for the first time when I get in but as always you took some fantastic shots. Thank you.
