I am fine with being spoiled. Mind PMing me instead? That avoids spoiling it for the people who are guessing.

 

^^ Agreed, I am alright with it being spoiled,  but that would also help not spoiling it for others.

I’m convinced no one knows what this addition is besides the higher-ups in park management. There is a reason no information about this project is known, besides what the park has calculatedly teased. Some people like to dangle a carrot in front of others’ faces shortly before announcements like this, it’s silly.

Thats true, usually if somebody knows something, or "has" information, it gets leaked quickly. (ex. Pantheon Blueprints, Orion blueprints, SWSA Layout). The only people who probably know are higher ups in the park.

I guarantee that those parties aren’t commenting on a speculation thread.

Is “Shocked” a hint at the theme?

^ It's not theme to the Flash. Try another guess what coaster or what addition would be...

I appreciate you not wanting to spoil anything. I understand as well.   However can you give any type of hint more so than we have already received 

 

shocked as in good or bad.  I was shocked with el Diablo

I would be incredibly shocked if the addition happens to be a B&M Giga, so I’m going to go ahead and predict that just so that on the off chance it actually happens it’ll be great.

So of the 15 parks in the Six Flags chain, I’ve tried to make a very rough estimate of where budget (~$75M USD) could be distributed:

  1. Zamperla Discovery ($3M USD) x 2 = $6M USD
  2. Zamperla NebulaZ ($2M USD) x 1 = $2M USD
  3. Funtime Starflyer ($1.5M USD) x 2 = $3M USD
  4. Mack Power Splash ($10M USD) x 1 = $10M USD
  5. ABC Rides Tourbillon ($2M USD) x 2 = $4M USD
  6. Zamperla Endeavour ($2M USD) x 1 = $2M USD
  7. S&S Free Spin ($7M USD) x 1 = $7M USD
  8. RMC Raptor ($4M USD) x 1 = $4M USD
  9. Waterpark Additions (N/A) x 3 = allocate $10M USD

This would be for 14 parks. This information and pricing are in no way substantiated, I am just throwing it out for the sake of prediction. Some of the costs are rough estimates, based on what I gathered from online searches. This would accrue to $48M USD, so we can round this to around $50M USD for the sake of analysis.

 

That leaves roughly $20M USD (a little more, based on CapEx). If I’m being truthful, my coaster predictions in this formula are likely incorrect. We can shuffle around some of the additions, maybe throw in an S&S launched coaster instead of the Raptor or Free Spin. There potentially is a generous amount leftover that allows for an addition of around $10M USD (if not more) to be up for grabs.

Also, what types of (potential) roller coasters could fit the bill for a "world record breaking project" for Six Flags Great Adventure? I listed a potential few below: 

 

RMC Raptor - Tallest, fastest, and longest single rail

Premier Rides Multi Launch - World's tallest loop "175ft"

S&S Air Launch - World's tallest double inversion (Taller than Maxx Force so 176ft+)

 

Any other world records (type of coaster and the record) that anyone could think of?

Those are the three primary candidates, especially given Six Flags’ recent history of additions.
