The Events page has been updated, and along with opening day they have also added an event called "Coaster Celebration".

Here is the description: "Saturday, June 11, 2011 - Celebrate your love for coasters at the home of 2 Golden Ticket award winning coasters! Six Flags Great Adventure’s Coaster Celebration introduces a NEW THEME FOR 2011 - B&M BASH!"

While I remain indifferent on Chang's arrival not super happy bout it, not overally upset either....it clearly puts us back as the best B&M park out there....something that SFMM stole from us with Tatsu. I mean before Tatsu there was no question it was us: takin the only 4 parks in the world that have at least 4 beemers: us, MM, Gam and SFoG.

Gam has probably the saddest collection of B&Ms then any park in the world. I mean you would think out of 4 at least one would be amazing its B&M for crying out loud! But three of them were B&M first models and two are clones....and well just sux for them really....on a plus note though they definitly win the award for best B&M history IMO.

SFoG: two clones, Georgia scorcher is nothing to write home about, and their only winner is Goliath which easily falls short when compared to Nitro.

So that leaves the last two MM and us:

Batman vs. Batman write it off tie

Bizarro and Scream! - we get a minor edge for Bizarro being the first floorless model and the added themeing but its such a minor edge that its ultimately a tie

Riddler vs. Green lantern - MM gets a slight edge here just like we did above but its so slight that ultimately its a tie

Tatsu vs. SUF - No contest MM takes the cake

And then the added B&M of Nitro just puts us clearly over the edge for the best


B&M blast is the appropriate theme for sure I mean we have every B&M model in our park now except a Dive Machine and the brand-new model opening next year at Gardaland.

I've been to SFMM and heres how I compare them:

Gadv BTR<SFMM BTR: This thing blew gadv's out of the water, It was better themed and the desert type Gotham City around it was Bada$$.
S:UF<Tatsu: Do I really need to say anything? Tatsu' pretzel loop kicked my a$$. Superman's in just forceful. Being 170ft. right over concrete while laying down=Scary
GL<RR: Riddler's is well themed, amazing, and just a load of fun. It made my #8 spot. Also the Ecuador music is amazing
Bizarro>>>>Scream: Scream is as I said in my TR, is pointless, and in a parking lot, and rough. It was ok, but I'll take Bizarro anyday of the week

Back to the "New Theme of [insert year]". Last year was the "Nitro Blast" with a "new theme". At least they say it's the celebration this year, not a topic igniter of possible re-themings, renovating, etc.

You know in the almost 10 years (as of Thanksgiving this year) that I have been apart of this site and the 19 years that I have been visiting the park I still have never done coaster celebration. I'd like if someone who has done it could ellaborate on what makes it a good event.
