I have to ask... "Make way for Zumanjaro"? Um... Excuse me?

They probably just need the extra space to house the 4 hour queue.

Riiiiiight. So, two/one big coaster(s) have been demolished to make way for a path? REALLY? More couldn't have been done to change that? Or in reality, is this just opening up the horizons for future construction opportunities.

Both. Rolling Thunder really wasn't in the shape to continue operating anyways, since Six Flags is oh so keen on maintenance of wooden coasters.

Plus Great Adventure is in dire need of new paths, it has such a horrendous layout.

Plus Rolling Thunder sucked anyway.

It won't surprise me if they decide to expand plaza del carnival back there in the future and maybe make it connect somehow with the boardwalk. They already said that they're going to add a baboon exhibit back there, which is nice. However I doubt that they'll put the next roller coaster there. I bet it will instead go where batman and robin the chiller was. That place is in need of something there, and theres plenty of space. And can I just say, that another great reason to love Zumanjaro is that it'll provide a lot more great off-ride shots of Kingda Ka!

A construction update has been to coasterfusion. However my computer doesn't allow me to view coasterfusions website. Something to do with Apple or Verizon not liking them or something, so the site is blocked on all devices. Can someone please put those photos onto this forum so that we can view them here? I would do them, but...

"How was work today, honey?" "Well, I drove a 48-story crane. No big."

Apparently Six Flags does not know how to rotate photos.

Absolutely vulgar, I'm sure it will be fab <3

Not sure about the red against that turquoise though, looks a bit garish and NOT in a good way!

Should the supports have been orange, I`m saying that because on the six flags video it is orange.
