"muggins" lol u been on kingada ka, thought not

sure oblivion was a "worlds first" a decade ago but the height of the drop is nothing and ur not vertical for that long i am sure if it was higher or deeper underground or from the drop it then pulled into loop i am sure it would be better

and yes i know i made an error about it being in the wrong place no need to go cry to the mods about it i'm sure they'll move it soon as they time

jeez u ppl are worse then nintendo fanboys

El Toro - SFGAdv

Sun Oct 02, 2005 8:15 pm

Not even a year since Kingda Ka and Golden Kingdom were born, New Jersey will be treated to ANOTHER brand new area and with it.. another biggy coaster!

It's expected to be Americas ultimate woodie, and rank amongst the tallest and fastest woodies in the world!

Press release: http://www.rcdb.com/document189.htm

...And the facts: http://www.rcdb.com/id3183.htm

More proof again that SFGAdv really is Six Falgs' premier park!!

Another reason to put Great Adventure on the top of your 'parks i must visit' list!! :D

Is there a particular reason why Six Flags are developing this particular park at such a rapid pace?

*Sigh* One day. :)

Maybe they have a lot of room to build these Uber coasters... Holiday World must be kicking themselves for promoting Voyage as having the steepest drop on a woodie, seen as El Toro will be 10 degrees steeper :roll:

Coaster wise, it looks better than SFMM (even though they're opening the flyer next year).

Aye, 76 on a woodie is pretty damn steep! It's not far off being the same steepness as Millenium Force!!

I agree, SFGAdv is looking much bigger and better than SFMM. I've seen these bits of track for the rumoured flyer - Is it actually confirmed to be a flyer? The bits of track don't give much away...

Yeah I think it was revealed to be a B&M flyer, and will be called Tatsu... it will be a unique layout, travelling around the hill in the middle of the park... so at least it wont be a car park coaster!

No, Six Flags Great Adventure are getting the wooden coaster, whilst Six Flags Magic Mountain are getting the flyer.

I think Kingda Ka and TTD should have made a much longer circuit for the rides! A few more hills and drops and maybe a helix or 2 :)

tatsu looks awesome, theres a video of it on ssmm website. El toro is going to be a huge addition to sfga, it will make it one of the best ride line ups in the world, just behind Cedar Point in my oppinion.

I think that Six Flags are trying to build another flagship park along with Magic Mountain.

It also looks like Six Flags are starting to bring back theming
