It will be fun to watch, but there's no way I'll be getting on that ride. Which is a bummer, since I was hoping for something else my wife and I could ride.

I'm trilled with this addition, despite me constantly rooting a for a T Rex. There's three reasons why I think this was a good move by Great Adventure:

 

- We have always complained about needing more flats, and this is not only a flat but a one of a kind flat (on the east coast atleast)

 

- This is a fairly thrilling attraction that will do a good job at reviving a fairly dead section in the park.

 

- It's not a Skywarp, and the issue with getting a Skywarp would be that Six Flags would've called it a coaster. Like I stated before, we need flats, not coasters.

Wish we would have got what Magic Mountain Got. Open 365 days a year.

Great Adventure could use a Family or Dueling Wooden Coaster.

They got the year round addition for a reason, it's always sunny there lmao

 

Of course we could use certain coasters but flats are a big priority.

My hope is that this is a small, relatively small addition to free up capital for a "major" new attraction next year. Especially if the Meadowlands thing finally gets off the ground.

 

I also wouldn't be surprised to see a later announcement of something for Hurricane Harbor.

The Meadowlands American Dream mall, even if it ever opens (lol) still won't be anything that will directly compete with great adventure.

Lol exactly and our park is pretty much open year round as it is now with holiday in the park. We basically have a 2.5-3 month off season.

It looks pretty good. I'll give it a try.

 

 

If the animation is a true indication of the layout I don't think it will close the path. If you look 4 seconds into the video you can see the path on the right.

If anything, the path will reopen. Cyborg goes in he Musick express spot and the basketball game goes where the enterprise was (or Swashbuckler as Wonder Woman), add a skywarp and a discovery in Autobahn/frisbee place. Build a T-rex where Stuntman/demon District theater is themed to Nightwing or Riddler. As For Deadman's Party, it would probably be relocated to either its original location (big wheel) or into the Showcase Theater.

Cyborg is not replacing the Musik Express location, it is going where Autobahn/Frisbee were.

Can't say I'm thrilled with this because I probably will never ride this, or just ONE AND ONE TIME ONLY(and vomit right after) but hey, it's something. Overall most of the additions this year seem underwhelming. Maybe saving up for a big year next year?

Any current pass holders get a special code for the labor day sale? Saw that we should but I never received.

Mine is for SFNE but yes. It was included in the new ride announcement email that was sent out Thursday afternoon. I would think that GA did something similar.

Well that could be it. I never got any email. Checked spam folder and nothing. What did the offer consist of? I was going to order now. Should I wait for the email?

I don't remember how to post pics but this was what was listed. The passes were also $1 cheaper than what's showing normally. Maybe try logging into your account they might have the info there. Again this was SFNE. GA's might be different.

Cyborg is not replacing the Musik Express location, it is going where Autobahn/Frisbee were.

 

Based on the video, it's actually fitting in right between the Autobahn building and Showcase Theater, creating essentially a dead end for Metropolis. (Even though the pathway is still to the right of Cyborg, it doesn't look promising that it will be open nor even an extension of Metropolis in the future.)

NIce find (spec sheet), ReptileGuy.

 

BTW, I see from the spec sheet that ABC Rides refers to the ride as the Tourbillon. A Tourbillon is actually a type of watch movement, which I found interesting.

I hope that the park took into consideration the noise this ride may generate given its proximity to the Showcase Theatre.  Both FreeFall and Chiller could often be heard operating outside the theater back when the park used the venue for shows.

I remember when ABC's video first went viral and I thought to myself whoa this thing looks insane.  If anything it looks more disorienting than nauseating imo.  Can't wait to try this one. Glad to see a unique addition to the parks line-up.  As much as I would love to see a new coaster like everyone else, I think it's great that the park is building up their flat collection and ride count. I remember everyone complaining back in the mid 2000's how we desperately needed flats and now were finally getting them! (Long time poster here lol feeling old)
