Im sorry, but i think Skull Mountain is a great ride at Six Flags Great Adventure. Many people say they hate it, but with the theme, and the music and lights (when they have them on) makes it a great ride. Anyone agree?

I love Skull Mountain! The back seat is where you need to sit though. That drop is great when you fly out of your seat. Also, ask the ride ops to turn up the music, now that it's the Alice Cooper hard rock! When they crank up the music, it is easily one of the best ride in the park!

I think the ride is okay.
I haven't been on it since last year, I heard that they changed it and kept the stuff from frightfest. I went on last summer with my friend Jay. It was so boring we started singing random annoying pop songs on the ride. I'll give it a try when I go back in a few weeks. I think that if they made the first drop longer it would be a better ride.

It was awesome when they had the lights from Fright Fest, but it's still pretty good. In the back you get great airtime on the first drop. It's a good ride, but I don't think it compares to Nitro or Medusa.

Just got back from Sfgadv and went on SM, wait until the ride takes it 2nd to last turn, look directly down, and you will see a dead body hanging from a noose. Its a cool prop but there are no lights on it, you only see it if you really look for it. And when your heading up the lift hill, look down and you will see the maintenance room, theres old parts of rides, lights, etc. Check it out

That guy hanging by the noose had a spotlight on him during Fright Fest, but they shut it off because it was too graphic for normal operation. It will probably have the light on it again in October, though.

I miss the strobe light during fright fest, it gave you a chance to see the whole ride.

<BR>They'll do that for you? That's great! Next time I go I'll get to see the new scenery and I'll try to get the music up. Last time I went, I was very dissapointed with it, but I do think that scenery would help it out a little.
<BR>Who designed Skull Mountain anyway?

About the music, I have the " Get Out" sound file from the ride, its what you hear just as your about to go down, go to the page and listen!http://www.homestead.com/sixflagsgreatadventure/Skull.html

Skull Mountain was designed by Intamin AG. You need to ask the ride ops to turn up the music, though! A couple of times, they haven't done it. Many ride ops will, a few don't though. It's just a flip of the cards whether you have a nice ride op, or a mean one.

ive never been on it during fright fest but the other times its not thrilling or fun at all

The ride is so boring that you could fall asleep on it and its one of the worst rides in the park.

Its an ok ride.The first drop is pretty cool
A kiddie coaster is a kiddie coaster, no matter if there's music, strobe lights, darkness, etc. It sucks.
