(look at the first pic) http://instagram.com...parkofnewjersey  This was "Leaked" not sure if it's real or not. But if it is, the "Looping dragon" is NOT a carnival loop ride. It's a Roller Coaster. 

Doesn't seem very credible but I really hope it is.

I hate to say or think this but can't they call the looper a coaster?

They can if they want to, sadly. What I find interesting about this is that it says that "Looping Dragon" will be the parks 12th roller coaster. We already have 12 roller coasters. If this leak is true, does this mean that they are going to remove another roller coaster? I think the more likely scenario is that this leak is simply fake, especially if "Looping Dragon" is actually a Super Loop as suggested. It would be very surprising if the park removed another coaster just to install a lame carnival ride.

:D Thank you for this. Didn't even think of this.

So I'm a little confused right now. These links don't work. But are obviously real, but why would a Super Loop need a video and facts? It's a super loop, what can the facts possibly be? "This ride goes around a loop, and then ends"

At least I know we will have a ride that may consume a percentage of the crowd while I ride everything else.  I have little to no interest in this thing, I don't like those types of rides and I feel this is really an unfit addition for Great Adventure or any major theme park.  I don't like these types of rides that just spin you around a loop a few times and you're done, I'd rather we get an aqua loop at HH than anything.  I swear 2016 had better be the addition of a wing rider <.<

Agree 100% These rides are meant for carnivals, and even then, I don't go on them. Why would I go on that, when I can walk over and go on the worlds tallest roller coaster? Or if I really felt like going around some loops, I would go on Batman...Or Superman...Or Green Lantern....Or Bizarro. Don't understand this ride at all. This ride could be an OK addition to America. But that's about it

Because marketing! Facts would be speed, height, riders per train, etc. And the video is to show what it is. This is all part of the media release that will be sent out to news channels and sites for them to post on their sites.

At least we will all get to laugh about how Six Flags is trying to market a Super Loop as a roller coaster.

No news channels are going to be saying anything about a carnival ride.

Of course they will! It's something new. It'll probably get about a minute of air time but that's typical for any new ride announcement. No one in the newsrooms will really know that it's a carnival ride. They are just going to repeat everything from the press release, show some b-roll, and call it a day.

If it is announced as the Super Loops ride. Please let me know if any TV news station talks about it.

The only reason the park will overhype the Super Loop and market it as a coaster is because the general public is dumb enough to believe what they are being told by the park. Six Flags isn't dumb, maybe conniving and sneaky, but not dumb. They know a large portion of visitors are tourists. They can market the shiz out of this and churn a total profit simply because it's a new large attraction.

Do I want it in the park? I mean, we can't judge the book by its cover just yet. Yes, it's a carnival ride. But so is a scrambler, which we have. So is a pirate ship, which we have. It may not fit well, but it's a larger scale ride, which we could always use, and it will eat up lines, which will help benefit the park as a whole.

I would have loved to have seen a coaster this year, but sometimes you gotta roll with the punches. I said it before, I would be more upset if we don't get a coaster next year (2016) than I am about getting a "not really a coaster but it's advertised as a coaster" Super Loop. Just suck it up, the media blast will be bs, but who knows, maybe things could work out. If you're really sour, at least we can start speculating once the announcement is made. But for now, just accept it and move on.

I don't agree with it being a coaster either and I wonder if they just copied the information from Larson's website since Larson is considering it a coaster:

http://www.larsonint...giant-loop.html

"Larson International, Inc. supersized the Fire Ball and came up with this larger dominating compact roller coaster."
