We know you have all been eagerly waiting for this brand new music video! Six Flags Great Adventure has finally unleashed mayhem in the form of The Joker! This flipping chaotic coaster is the most intense and out of your seat head over heels ride we have ever been on! The video would have been posted weeks ago, but thanks to some opening day jitters where Joe and I were stuck upside down during the Media Event, we had to postpone the release of the video back a bit. The video is jam packed with off ride footage recorded by us as well as some B-roll and POV footage from the park themselves. We hope you enjoy this intense video of an intense coaster!
