Jackson, New Jersey
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (10/5/15) Good News / Bad News time for SFGAdv. The good news is that according to a reader, the park is STILL running Batman Backwards even though it the run was originally supposed to come to an end on Labor Day. The bad news is that for whatever reason, they are only running it with one train, so the line is crazy long. Be warned!
(8/27/15) A reader sent in some new demolition pictures from inside Six Flags Great Adventure showing off the progress as they take down the stadium to make way for the 2016 project. Speaking of which... don't look for it to be called Total Mayhem, despite the trademaking of that name. If you visit the official Fright Fest page you'll notice that the top haunt listed under "Frights" is called Total Mayhem.
(8/25/15) I'm hearing that demolition inside Great Adventure is well under way now, with the Festival Stage already gone, the outer wall of the grandstand removed, and the grandstand expected to be the next thing removed, followed by the Aqua Stadium.
(6/16/15) According to a reader who rode the Safari Off-Road Adventure at SFGAdv this week, their driver mentioned during the ride that they were planning on adding Cheetah’s and Baboons to the animal tour next year.
(4/2/15) An announcement from Six Flags Great Adventure on April 1st that initially sounded like an April Fool’s Joke apparently isn’t, as the park is planning on opening over the Christmas holiday season as they put on their first Holiday In The Park event later this year.
The park will be decorated to the brim with holiday cheer, and promises gentle snowflakes will fall each evening, along with a tree lighting cerimony. The park also promises 30 rides to be open, weather permitting of course, with the list to include SkyScreamer, Carousel, Big Wheel, Parachutes, Tea Cups as well as the following coasters: Nitro, Batman, Green Lantern, Superman, The Dark Knight and Skull Mountain.
2016 - Hurricane Harbor Adding Caribbean Cove - (11/12/15) Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in New Jersey has announced the addition of Caribbean Cove, a new interactive water playground area with more than 55 fun interactive features, nozzles, jets, valves, an action slide and a two-story-tall tipping bucket. Caribbean Cove will open for Summer 2016 season and be located between the Taak It Eez Ee Creek lazy river and Big Wave Racer slide complex.
2016 - TOTAL MAYHEM - (11/12/15) All American Thrills has posted some new coverage from Six Flags Great Adventure as the park prepares itself for the new Holiday in the Park event.
(11/11/15) Accoirding to pictures posted to CoasterChitChat, the site for the park's new Total Mayhem coaster is now finally cleared and ready to begin construction on the new coaster. They also report that a number of the new coaster's support beams are already on site at the park.
(9/3/15) A local news outlet has confirmed that the park will add an S&S FreeFly 4D coaster to the park to be called TOTAL MAYHEM.
(8/20/15) I'm told that the Jackson Township approved plans for a new coaster to be added to Six Flags Great Adventure at the last meeting. No further details were available.
(7/20/15) AllAmericanThrills takes a look around Six Flags Great Adventure this week as the construction walls rise and the speculation about what is on the way kicks into high gear. The popular story is that not only will this be an S&S Free Fly 4D coaster like the one that just opened at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
(7/6/15) Six Flags Great Adventure has now walled off the Fort Independence area, which you can see in these pictures posted to CoasterChitChat. Could this be where the Total Mayhem project is going or is something else planned for this location?
(7/3/15) Six Flags has filed for a new name trademark this month for their latest attraction to be called "Total Mayhem". While this could be for any Six Flags theme park, the name would be a perfect fit for an S&S Free Fly 4D style coaster, the type that was rumored to be on the way for SFGAdv.
