Six Flags Great Adventure “The Joker” Construction Tour

Yesterday, March 13 2016, Six Flags Great Adventure was kind enough to invite us out to a special behind-the-scenes construction tour of their new for 2016 roller coaster : “The Joker” . The construction should finish up this week, cars will begin testing mid April, and barring any issues the coaster will open to the public on Memorial Day weekend.

We checked out the Sky Bar which will serve beer, wine, and snacks as well as a look at where they have completely removed the building from the former Chiller coaster. Speculation is already swirling around this being the site for a 2017 addition, but nothing official was discussed.

On a final note, the Ferris Wheel will not be running on opening day due to a lengthy refurb.
