One thing that stands out is that The Great Character Cafe has somewhat reverted back to its original name: Yum Yum Cafe.

 

Maybe in 2015, Granny's will revert back to Gingerbread Fancy.

no no no no the BIG thing that stands out to me is that the exit pathway from zumanjaro WILL cross under the track of KK's launch!  That is very interesting I guess NJ state has approved it

That will be cool to walk under KK's track and should provide some interesting new picture taking spots.

They might have changed the chracter cafe back to yum yum as a trade off to us/GA history for changing northern star arena

Are the 77" max height limit for El Toro and Skull Mountain new? I know Twister had that restriction and Kingda Ka do but don't remember those rides having that restriction as well.

Don't understand why they got rid of rolling thunder, just to put nothing there.

Primarily because the ride was becoming harder and harder to maintain as the years wore on. It was closed down due to dry rot for a long period of time in its last season. Kingda Ka also had to have its tower reinforced with extra supports for Zumanjaro, and some of those supports do occupy where RT once stood.

Dry rot? Wow that just shows how little effort Six Flags put into maintaining it. I don't know much about ride maintenance but I know that rotting wood should be prevented on a coaster.

Youngpup this opened up a huge amount of space to future park expansion.  I'm not just talking the space rolling thunder used to be on but it also opens up the entire beginning portion of the original safari that is no longer used which is HUGE!  Its at least a third if not half the size of the current park.  THis is a big deal because see Great Adventure actually owns the second most land then any amusement park in the world.  2nd only to Walt Disney World.  The other side of the lake for instance is all owned by gadv, all of the woods across from the wawa and mcdonalds on 537 are owned by gadv.  They own a TON of land....however whenever they try to build on the land that has never been built on Jackson township votes to not allow it due to "too much tree removal".  By opening up this huge amount of unused safari to future park expansion the park now has land that was already developed!  Thats huge!  There is very little chance now Jackson township will turn down proposals to build in that area cause they have little reason to turn it down

Google Earth for reference. RT occupied a ton of space but there is at least twice that much space which was blocked by RT simply existing. Would not be surprised if the next addition to the park is anywhere in this area.
