Ok i know some people hat Six Flags Great Adventures but i went on Wednesday and loved it SO much. The only problem was that El Toro wasn't running, i tried the test seat anyway in case it opened and i fit with about a good 3 or 4 inches to spare on the seat belt. The park i very beautiful and the best part was the longest line i waited in was for King Da Ka and it was about 60 min even though they said 120 min. i think they say it's longest than it really is so people get flash pass. Nitro had about a 40 min line at the most not even that. i got on everything and i even liked the Great American Scream Machine i went on it 7 times LOL. I also liked Medusa i went on that 3 times, it's a long fun ride with only a 10 min wait. I went on Nitro 3 times and the last time i got the front. I went on Super Man once it had a 40 min wait, it was to slow. Rolling Thunder 3 times onces on the left and two times on the right cuz the right had a shorter line, left is better though. Skull Mountain was a 30 min wait but it was SO BORING. Bat Man was a 40 min wait, it's an ok ride. I also ,liked Runaway Mine Train, it was a bit ruff and sudden. Kind Da Ka is a fast ride i even got an upset belly cuz i got so worked up about it.

But one thing that bothered me was that on Nitro
right before it hits the midway brakes me and my family got the the sensation that we were going to pass out. our ears popped and vision got hazy
and discolored. but when we actually hit the midway brakes it went away as fast as it happened
has this ever happened to anyone els?

Glad you enjoyed your trip, I love SFGradv too, its an awesome park. The waits were about that long the day I went too, but I had a flash pass gold. I cant believe you didnt like SUF, I love that ride, I found myself getting very addicted to it actually. Much better than Nighthawk at Carowinds. B&M just rocks. Nitro was fun too, but I think the edge has to go to APollos Chariot. I never experienced what you guys did on Nitro, weird. Did you ride Dark Knight?

No, I like the big drops and loops.

Well, George, I'm glad you had fun, but that makes me even more jealous. It's even worse that my friend is there right now! What sucks for him, though, is that it's a sunny Saturday (the forcast says it will rain, though), and he says he won't buy a flash pass. I'd say at least a normal one!

Well I hope he gets one or he will only get on 2 or 3 rides.

Hey, George, I talked to my friend when he got back, and he said (suprisingly enough) that kingda ka only had about a half an hour wait and he got on it once. He rode that, El toro, Nitro, Batman the ride, Medusa, Superman ultimate flight, GASM, and maybe skull mountain, I forget. Yup, it suprised me too.

Yeah, I don't think it rained in NJ, but it must've looked like it.

I was there the same day and rode Nitro about 6 times; every time when we hit that tight turn toward then end before hitting the last 3 hills I felt a little lightheaded from the g force; my 7 yr old son was fine with it.
