I rode a VR headset at Europa Park last year and it was a really cool experience. They had a seperate queue for it and you had to pay 5 euros for it, better than I thought it would be.

This won't affect loading times!  How long until most of the VR headsets no longer work?
I have a hard enough time sitting on some coasters after some customers...let alone strap a sweaty headset to my face.
I'll take my Superman without please....Hopefully this will go the way of speakers on coasters and disappear!!!

This is pretty crazy. Starting this summer, a coaster at select parks (Great Adventure isn't included!) will be equipped with Samsung Gear VR headsets that you wear while riding! An example given was soaring through Metropolis while on Superman at SFNE (https://www.sixflags.com/newengland/attractions/vr/experience).

I already feel nauseous.

Probably Battle for Metropolis since the Right Stuff building isn't large enough, either that or a new flats package to reopen the Old Country.

Also hate to burst the bubble Wade but Chiller's station got torn down during the offseason, so it wouldn't of have worked there.

Flyin Phil's latest set of photos just misses proof of this.
Just off the top of this picture.  And missed both structures.

Oh I know.  I was referring to the general area where the station was :).  Joker could have easily fit between where Music Express and the Chiller observatory locations.  The lakefront just seems like the perfect place to put more of a custom ride that leveraged the natural landscape. 

I am curious as to what's happening in the Old Country through Batman Stunt show arena area because that's a lot of land being cleared out!

Looks like they did a solid job of plowing the park after the storm

I barely remember that section of park. I spent 95% of my time in lines...

It's going where the Lakefront Grandstand and Fort Independence used to be, right along the water.

I kinda wonder if it was the plan all along as well in terms of naming, Great Adventure seems to be making a habit out of renaming their rides lately.
