A week after our third amazing Twisted Colossus Tour we headed back up to the park to check on the rides progress.
Not a whole lot of new track was added this week, but it appears that a LOT of supports have been added and I'm guessing within the next week or so we'll be seeing a great deal of track going up.
We'll start off outside the park because, well, that's really place you can see the ride. =)
As you can see, lots of supports have been added to the last turnaround.
Supports for the Green Track that will go under the Blue Track's Zero G roll.
Moving over to the Top Gun Stall
When we arrived they were adding some supports.
Lots of work being done on the lift hill mechanics.
As well as wood replacement on the first turnaround.
As we were leaving they were installing some of the green track for the top gun stall. Click any of the pictures below to see a larger version.
Really like the colors on the theater. For the first time in, well, ever actually looking forward to a show in here.
I'm guessing some people have been asking about Scream? So the park is letting them know that it will reopen as part of the new Screampunk District. Hopefully with a new logo and tagline? =)
Elsewhere in the park, Superman's launch seemed MUCH quieter than I've ever heard it before. Could just be me, but hopefully they have found a way to mute it a bit.
Tidal Wave is back to running 2 boats.
Goliath has some new re-theme for a video game (I think?). Looks cool whatever it is.
Speaking of Goliath, as first reported by The Coaster Guy, Goliath's Lift Hill Chain broke on Saturday night. As of right now we have no idea how long the ride will be down for. We'll update as soon as we know anything.
Some water is back here, but ewww. Hopefully this will be dealt with.
There were lots of geese hanging out at the park.
Jet Stream has received a REALLY nice repaint. Looks fantastic.
Let the rumors begin. =)
The 2nd train was sitting on the transfer track, no indications of any kind of ad-wrap or any kind of work being done on it.
Full Throttle Stage is coming back.
Nice that they are keeping up with the paint around Full Throttle.
Outside the park, looks like Lost Temple Rapids is getting some work done.
The new wheelchair ramps are done.
Lastly, they were doing some work on one of the cell towers near the park. Gotta be honest, I'm not sure if this is new or not. I've personally never had a problem with reception in the park, but better reception is always a good thing.
Alright, that's going to wrap it up for today. We'll be keeping an eye on construction through the week and if there's a lot going on we'll try and get up to the park towards the end of the week.
Have a great week!!!

Magic of the Season at Six Flags Great Adventure
Jackson, NJ — April 1, 2015 — This winter, the Santa tracker will lead right to Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson.
