SIX FLAGS GREAT ADVENTURE
& Six Flags Hurricane Harbor
Jackson, New Jersey
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (2/3/16) According to a reader the demolition crew that cleared out the show stadiums are still working inside Six Flags Great Adventure have are said to have begun work tearing down the old Chiller station structure.
(12/1/15) CoasterChitChat has posted a fun review of the new Holiday in the Park event at Six Flags Great Adventure this week.
(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!
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 - The Joker
Total Mayhem - (2/5/16) More construction pictures of The Joker at SFGAdv have been posted to the park's website.
(1/28/16) As rumored, Six Flags Great Adventure made it official on Wednesday afternoon, and has not only rethemed the park's upcoming Total Mayhem coaster to The Joker, but they have renamed the coaster as well as simply, "The Joker".
Of course, this is the one thing about Six Flags that drives me crazy. I have no problem with the ride being themed to The Joker, and I'd even support a name like "Joker's Total Mayhem", but to simply call this coaster "The Joker" is not only going to cause a little confusion between it and the other "The Joker" under construction at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, but it ends up being a bit insulting as well to SFDK and their unique ride, especially when you consider that the S&S coaster coming to SFGAdv is an off the shelf model, and a copy of the same ride that they opened as Batman: The Ride at Six Flags Fiesta Texas last year. (And don't get me started on how lazy and confusing the use of the Batman name on that ride at SFFT is, when that park has a legit Batman: The Ride clone which they chose to name Goliath of all things, and... and... argh! It just makes my head ache when Six Flags does this kind of stuff. Ok... off my soapbox.
Anyway, they re-animated the coaster animation video with the new name and colors as well, so check it out below, and you can also view the official construction blog which has the first pictures of the new purple and green coaster rails.
(1/23/16) Want to add a new twist to that rumored report that Total Mayhem's coaster rails arrived painted the same green and purple colors as The Joker's rails at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom? Then take quick look at this CNBC video interview with Six Flags CEO Jim Reid-Anderson that I've jumped ahead to the important part. While Jim Reid-Anderson is talking about Six Flags Great Adventure and refers to the new coaster as "The Joker's Total Mayhem" instead of just "Total Mayhem". Sounds like the corporate office decided to drop a few more bucks into the DC Comics IP fund and add a cool Joker theme to this coaster, which is funny because the first one that opened at Six Flags Fiesta Texas last year was themed to Batman.
(1/19/16) I haven't seen any pictures to prove anything yet, but one reader reports that they say the track pieces for Total Mayhem at the park and that instead of the red and yellowish rails as seen in the animated preview video, the railed appeared to be green and purple instead, much like The Joker at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Can anyone else confirm this?
(1/7/16) A new look at the Total Mayhem construction site at SFGAdv has been posted to CoasterChitChat this week.
(12/22/15) A reader sent in a couple of pictures showing off the Total Mayhem construction site as of this week.
(12/13/15) CoasterChitChat has posted a look at the Total Mayhem construction site at Six Flags Great Adventure. Looks like the footers are being poured, the site made ready, and they also got a look at a pile of supports for the new coaster already on site.
(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.
