Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

Superman's SRQ has officially been discontinued. I've asked the park and they say it's not available.

So now it's just JLBFM, Joker, and Goliath.

Does anyone know why the SRQ was discontinued for Superman? My kids would use the SRQ everytime we went. They loved going on the ride.

Because Six Flags aparently doesn't care about capacity and so they don't have to pay a grouper in the station.

Try Superman at night or if there's a slight rain. It's awesome during those times!

My first trip since Joker opened up is coming up. How does the single rider line compare? Is it more similar to Justice League or Goliath?

Any luck with Superman since the reports of single rider being closed?

I've never used JL's so I don't know how that one works but it operates somewhat similar to Goliath in that you a paired with a group of 3 and sent to either side. If there's a group of 2 or 6 and they can't find a group of 2 from the regular line (Happened to me recently), they'll send 2 single riders with them. It moves VERY quickly.

My only complaint with Goliath is the single rider line is so slow. Really not much faster than the regular line. How long does single rider on Joker normally take?

It really depends on how many people are in front of you, but I've never waited more than 10 minutes using it. The attedant sends 3 or so groups to either side at a time and most of the time there's atleast one person joining one of the groups.

Staffing is a huge reason as to why The B&Ms lost their SRQs. There needs to be a grouper and that's the first position to be dropped if required. It may not help capacity as the GP like to go where they want regardless of what the grouper says.

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P
