I was the park yesterday as well and while it was a great visit, operations were much worse than in past visits. I’ve always found Great Adventure to have terrific ops so this unfortunate. Tons of stacking on Toro, Skull Mountain, and Bizarro (I know this isn’t unusual for Bizarro). Also, on my one ride on Kingda Ka, they were only sending one train in between Zumanjaro cycles even if the train behind it was all ready to before Zumie finished loading. Very unfortunate because Great Adventure’s operations are usually outstanding by SF standards.
Top 10 coasters
1. El Toro 2. Superman (SFNE) 3. Steel Vengance
4. Skyrush 5. Maverick 6. Millennium Force
7. Wicked Cyclone 8. Storm Chaser
9. Boulder Dash 10. Fury 325

Haunted Castle was located approximately where Cyborg is now.

This is SFGAdv. We don't play that game!

I haven't seen that ride in the park recently. ;)

Yep, pretty much. You can see it here on the 1984 park map (year of the accident) in the corner by the theater:

You can also see it here on this satellite image from 1979:

Compare that to present day:

For a while the park had a walkthrough gardens area in the location, but then that was turned into the Autobahn bumper cars:

So Cyborg's voice doesn't get you all hot and bothered?


She’s flipping out over “Grid” whoever that is

Grid is the evil version of Cyborg. And his voice in Cyborg Hyper Drive has me losing it again...

I believe it was along the path that that was frequently closed goes from the Big Wheel towards Justice League. It least I remember hearing stories of sounds coming from disabled speakers in that area at night.


My recollection (from looking at past photos and such) was the Haunted Mansion was located where the Autobahn Bumper Cars were in Old Country (which is northeast of where Cyborg is now)

That's... spooky... stuff.

Thanks for the information. The ironic part of the park map is the lady with the caption, "We care about you," just to the right of the Haunted Castle.

So thought I was going to be in Pittsburgh the weekend of Oct. 18-20 but turns out I'm going to be in Philly during the 25-28 weekend, which works out great since I've never been to SF GADV. I've got a Six Flags membership so that will be fine. Looking at going the Friday Oct. 25. Should I expect some big lines? Really as long as I can get on the big three or four coasters there I'll be happy.
