/\ LOL Don't give them any ideas!  I have to imagine that Nitro is soon on the list for a full refurb though.  It needs a full go-over. 

I won't say much about 2015 other than I'm fairly confident a significant coaster is coming.  What type is anybody's guess but I think the location is what might surprise people the most.  If rumors are true, it would seem there are a LOT of changes coming to the property in the next 5-10 years.

"Instead of Adding a new coaster, We're giving Nitro a cable lift!" Wouldnt that suck?

I don't really see any benifit to adding one to Nitro anyway. Plus the prelift section would make it difficult to engage a cable lift anyway. El Toro is actually the only cable lift thats not immediately out of the station.

I can assure you they aren't modifying Nitro :). Yes, we need more capacity but I think that is coming more 2015-16 than 2014. Look for drop ride and a few other odds and ends for the park next year but nice things are coming...... Says the guy who is typing this from Hershey Park :D

The 2015 Rumor Mill Continues on Screamscape

Quote
2015 - New Coaster - Rumor - (5/30/14) The early buzz for Six Flags Great Adventure is that the park may tap Rocky Mountain Construction to build another custom crazy creation like Goliath that will soon open at SF Great America, but bigger and meaner. The only clue as to the location is that our sources says that they would like for it to try and dive underground, traveling under 'the lake' at some point. If this is true, then look for this new coaster to go in the back of the park, perhaps near the old water-ski stands, or possibly over where the log ride sits. This also makes sense as the backside of the park could use a new major attraction, as almost every other new addition for the last several years has been placed either up front near the entrance (Superman, Green Lantern, Sky Screamer) or in the nearby north-east corner where we can now find Kingda Ka, Zumanjaro and El Toro. Off the top of my head the only new addition in the last decade to go elsewhere would be The Dark Knight indoor mouse coaster on the dead western side of the park where The Chiller used to be.

I can't see anything ever going under the lake...unless you somehow consider Congo Rapids to be a lake.
Supposed to be another bad winter..they better get started now if they want it completed by late spring 2015.

Rofl Lance is biting bad bait so much lately. There's no way Great Adventure ever will get permission to build a tunnel near Switlik or Prospertown lakes, it's protected land by the state now you can't build on it, let alone UNDER it.

Regarding Ka or the opening of Jumanji?  Because I'd be shocked if the drop ride opened this coming weekend.

He mentioned 3 RMC employees grabbing first rides on Ka before it opened to the public.
I'd still rather see the giga.

I'd be surprised if they opened Jumanji this weekend also...They were running the cars through very slowly on Sunday.
No actual drops...and no Ka either.

Ka is weekends only until Zumanji opens, even employees are in the dark on the opening date. Although we've heard Saturday a lot, we've never seen actual drop testing done. Probably the most interesting stuff for us this week was being able to ride Congo Rapids so the crew could have their training cycles done, I got soaked!

Thanks for the update b-mac.  That being said, I don't believe anybody is being kept in the dark.... They simply have no idea!!

Full height drop tests happened a few days ago, still no news on opening but I'm hopeful for this Saturday.

Unfortunately, I suspect that is wishful thinking :( .  Haven't seen the site in person but it still looks to me like they have a long way to go.  And that's just talking the physical work yet alone the state inspections, required cycles, height requirements and other guidelines that are needed and to the best of my knowledge, aren't done yet.  We shall see.  I hope I'm wrong :).

What once people said I was crazy for recommending, is now actually happening with Zumanjaro ... Well done

However, did we build Millennium Force 2.0? If not then its back to hiatus

My money is leaning away from a coaster for 2015, seems to me the entertainment department is finally going to get some much needed love for next year.
