What is the deal with six flags Great Adventure. New ride to break the 275 into the sky. 80 + MPH. Sounds amazing. Has anybody been on a B & M that fast or even close to that speed. Also is it possible that this is a floorless coaster. I hope not. Kumba at BGT has the best cars and the ride is so smooth. See you all in Jackson...

I retract my statement due to a upset use of the site. RUMOR- 275,80,floorless. came from a friend in the construction business who claims to be working on the coaster. I appologize if I upset any other users...

I was under the impression that this was a speed coaster from B&M, not a floorless...I could be mistaken though...

A floorless seems very unlikely seeing as Great Adventure already has Medusa (just 2 seasons old).

I figured this ride to be more like Appollo. I hope it is, this ride looks to be a beauty..... I was Questioning this rumor as I was being told about the ride. Looks like the ride has lap bars, no OTSR.... I hope this goes well and opens on time...

I could see where people could mistake the B&M hyper (Apollo, Raging Bull) trains with the B&M floorless (Medusa, BKF, Kraken) trains. On the hyper trains, the seats are somewhat elevated, resulting in people being able to swing their legs (at least us short 'uns ;) )

The differences are there IS a floor in the cars, and the restraints are a lap harness instead of horsecollars...
