Six Flags Great Adventure: Joker Closes During Media Day Event
posted May 26, 2016
Today Six Flags Great Adventure was finally ready to unveil the newest addition to the park to the coaster world. The weather has been more on the dry side, the sun was beaming and the temps were finally reaching what we see along The Jersey Shore this time of the year. It was a perfect day for a Media Preview Event minus the chronic sweating, that I could have done without. However, after just a few runs, The Joker was closed for the day and Joe and I were involved!

Six Flags Great Adventure was opened this past weekend so Joe and I made our way over to the park to see what progress has been made on The Joker site itself. The track work has been finished but there is still the construction of the queue line, marquee and overall site itself. Now if you have been watching the Weather Channel you would know that the Northeast has been plagued by an onslaught of rain and storms for almost ten days. With this in mind, I didn't think there would be much done considering you really can't pour concrete in torrential rain.
