    Like the photos. This will be a good ride for them. I just hope they don't shut down more section or more rides to cut back on costs to operate it.

    I agree, the flats need to come back, there needs to be more to do in the park !!!!!

    We need more flats could be a slogan for nearly all the SFI parks. I guess only time will tell.

    Re: Great Adventure announces Green Lantern

    They should copy what Cedar Fair does with flats because that is one thing I love about them. They have an array of flats along with coasters. Jersey is in need of Flats bad. I only go opening day and coaster events only to that park. It really isn't worth going to because you can ride the hell out of that park and not be satisified

    The only good rides in the park are coasters and the best coasters to me are:

    El Toro
    Kingda KA
    Batman
    TDK
    Skull Mountain
    RUnaway Mine Train

    Nitro & Bizarro are boring, I get more of a thrill from TDK then those 2

    Nitro and Bizzaro Lack a level of thrill but I do like them but ya. when I went in 2001 there were plenty of flats which really made my 2 day visit well worth it. It woudl be great to see them back at that level.

    I like Nitro, but I don't understand how it keeps getting #3 in the Golden Tickets. Either way, even though GADV is trying to keep up in the war of coasters, they really do need some flats. Maybe 2012 will bring some good ones to the park. If they added 5-8 good flats, it would be a very well rounded park.

    One can only hope. but with another major coaster to upkeep. I just hope they don't remove more flats.

    Re: Great Adventure announces Green Lantern

    It's really funny, because in almost every SF park, they need more flatrides.....

    Re: Great Adventure announces Green Lantern

    It's true. Granted not every park is as bad as GAdv or MM but most parks are in need of them. Old managements believed that coasters were much easier to market/advertise then flats, so that's what they mostly added.

    Look at <a class="postlink" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_EvGp-DNs3yQ/TR3kDYMLvSI/AAAAAAAABY0/SBSEfaFpP9o/s1600/0005.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_EvGp-DNs3yQ/T ... 0/0005.jpg</a> closely. Also look at <a class="postlink" href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_EvGp-DNs3yQ/TR3j75scRqI/AAAAAAAABYc/XDs9ov_4lqU/s1600/0008.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_EvGp-DNs3yQ/T ... 0/0008.jpg</a> closely, you can see in the last one there are snow covered green tracks, but also four white ones. On GAH, a trusted person, said they're for the corkscrews.

    I was also asked, "What if not all Green Lantern was really green?" The same trusted person on GAH said something similar a while back. He also said that while GL wouldn't have audio, it would have special lighting features and tunnels. I'm assuming the former has to do with the white corkscrews.
