Official 'The Joker' Topic

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby Guy_With_A_Stick on September 1st, 2016, 3:43 am
Same as always. Discuss anything and everything related to our new S&S 4D Freespin- The Joker!

in my opinion, I think it'd be a nice fit. It gives me another reason to go to the other side of the park. It'll also keep crowds on that side as well. Hopefully it'll compliment Batman well.

Also, there is a new website for 2017. It's really neat, although the header is a bit bulky.

I'm guessing around Mardi Gras? XD Yeah, it'd be good to know, but I have no clue.

I just realized - We'll finally have more than 5 inversions on a coaster! Yay (Though R.I.P. any chance of a launch coaster before 2020)

"park officials said the 12-story Joker is being eyed for Yankee Harbor, next to Great America's 1992 entirely different version of Batman: The Ride."

I'm not totally excited yet but I know it will grow on me. I'm just a little salty this pushes back the addition of a legit coaster for awhile, but I know I'll like The Joker. I'm a sucker for 4D coasters, X2 is my number one and Green Lanturn is higher that everybody else would normally have it.

So, I'm guessing it's going right next to Batman? I'd love a lakeside view of it, but I guess not

I really got my hopes up for a super loop since corporate is putting then in every park butt buddy

Well looks like Screamscape was right all along when they first guessed it was going to be a Free Spin.

Double post but I don't think this coaster will make top 5 at the park...and lastly, in 2015, SFFT added a 4d to a smaller park, 2016 we saw it at a bigger park, I think that was experiments and were gonna see 4d coasters come to every six flags park. My theory. And also, from what were seeing in 2017, our future is bright! Giant discovery, skyscreamer, water coaster, possible Mardi gras revamps. And lastly (again) no superloops this year!?! Wonder why? Does this mean were not getting one?

I'm gonna sound snobbish now but I'd love to swap our Joker for Either Wonder Woman Lasso or Fiesta Texas' Thunder Rapids.


Glad Six Flags isn't over Star Flyers. I get a new coaster next year, Yay!


EDIT: I Am happy that we have new colors for a coaster in our park.

You can never tell what Six Flags will do, remember we got X-Flight and Goliath two years apart. The bigger issue with your dream home is that SF appears to have stopped doing big coasters entirely.

I think this will be a good addition to the park. I like that it has a 48" height requirement and not 54". More kids will be able to enjoy this "bigger" attraction. Now if only my daughter would ride more big rides.

Well once we send Revolution to SFA I'm sure we'll have room for a new frisbee

I have a feeling water coasters may be the trend for the next 5 years as parks look to expand HH.

Hooray! I still wish it was the bigger model but oh well. I think that it will be cool having it near/next to the original Batman: The Ride. I really hope the ride gets some cool theming like the Joker @ SFDK but that's wishful thinking really. Overall though, happy we are getting another coaster! Even if this isn't exactly what we wanted it is still another addition to one of the best collections out there.
Favorite Coasters I've Ridden:
Steel: 5. Diamondback 4. Twisted Colossus 3. X2 2. Millennium Force 1. Maverick
Wood: 5. Hades 360 4. Goliath (SFGAM) 3. Mystic Timbers 2. Renegade 1. The Beast
Great America: 5. American Eagle 4. Batman: The Ride 3. Raging Bull 2. X-Flight 1. Goliath

Coaster Count: 104
Go Hawks!

Nothing at all of note going in next year at either chain. It will be a good time to catch up on some things I haven't gotten around to yet (Fury, Lagoon).

not sure how many times i'll actually ride it since capacity isn't the greatest, but if it will be near Batman, that should make for some pretty cool off-ride POV's!

I'm super excited!! I've never been on a free spin and this looks pretty cool. I realize it's not "THE" coaster we're all wanting (either a super big launch coaster, a giga, etc), but it looks like a fun ride and something different from what we have currently. And my 6yo will LOVE this ride! She loves doings somersaults and cartwheels.

I kind of laughed at how Six Flags has TWO Wonder Woman rides going up next year that are completely different! They could have come up with different names. And that Titan that's going up at Le Ronde has same logo as our Goliath but it's NOT the same as Titan in SFOT. THey could be a little more original with new names :)

I'm also way more excited about this than I was about JL coming this year.
