Thread: New York City to SFGAdv

  1. #1

    New York City to SFGAdv

    I assume the best way to get to SFGADV from New York would be the NJ Transit bus. It costs $47 as a package, including transport & park entry.

    Would a weekday in late April be a good choice? What rides should be done early in the morning? Any other tips appreciated!

    That's a good price for the package. Knock CHILLER off as soon as possible. The other coasters have good capacity.

    Do you have any idea why the park is open daily for the last week of April, but then closed again for the following week?

    I presumed it was spring break for the local schools, but I reseached it and the spring break isn't on these dates...

    Jackson school district has off that week for spring break. (I know im in that school.)
    SFGADV goes along with the Jackson school district. When they have a scheduled day off, then the park is open. So, say we had off this following monday for a holiday, then SFGADV would be open.

    Just to let you know, KK IS suspose to open that week.

    How long does it take to get from NYC to Great Adventure? Next time I fly to New York (when I get a job and some money), I'm gonna try and get to GAdv.

    Bus leaves New York at 9:30, arrives at 11:00.

    If it will be busy for Spring Break and that new coaster, I probably won't go.

    No, ONLY Jackson is out that week. All other schools are in.

    So last year, the spring break week wasn't crowded at the park? I guess in that case, I just have to worry about Kingda Ka's opening.

    I hope it's still closed cause I don't want it to be busy, and I wouldn't have the guts to ride that thing anyway.

    Thanks medieval!

    The last week of April (Saturday, April 23rd - Sunday May 2nd) is Passover week. Practically ALL schools are closed that week. This year, Easter and Passover did not fall anywhere near each other like they usually do.

    So, there is a VERY good chance the park will be extremely crowded. I am sure that all colleges will be closed that week as well.

    Depending on where you leave from in New York City, the average travel time is around an hour and a half to two hours, depending on traffic.

    All the other schools had spring break. So if their closed, then that shot over my head.

    I recamend leaving around 8-8:30. Little after rush hour. Also rides knocking off first would be Chiller and also I would say Superman. Also knock Nitro off when ever the line is under hour and a half lines for that can get massive.

    IIRC, there are multiple buses that leave regularly throughout the morning. Every half hour I think. So it's not like 9:30 is the only time.

    I know South Jersey already had it's spring break and does not get off for Passover. If KK is open, that is what you want to get to first. Then hit Chiller, Batman, Nitro. Then go for anything else on that side of the park that you would like to. After go over to Medusa, RT, Superman, and GASM. Add in all flats and other rides as you pass them. If you have time at the end, Try to get back in line for KK and wait until the end. They will probably close KK's line around 9:00 but let it run until it's empty.

    KK's line will close with the park like every other line.

    I'm pretty sure that TTD and sometimes MF would close their lines off 30 mins. to an hour before the park closed. That way they wouldn't be running it until 1 in the morning.
