Another Villain Rolls Into Six Flags Great Adventure's 2016 Season

To celebrate the arrival of The Joker, Six Flags Great Adventure's new 4D Free Fly coaster, Harley Quinn has decided to join the fun and move in next door to the new ride.  Taking over what was formerly known as Blackbeard's Lost Treasure Train, the family roller coaster will now be known as Harley Quinn Crazy Train.

The roller coaster - suited for smaller guests with only a 41 inch height requirement - has been thrilling visitors for more than 15 years.  It is one of the remaining attractions installed during the theme park's massive 1999 "war on lines" expansion.  The transformation into Harley Quinn Crazy Train will utilize all new colors and theme.  Here is how the ride looked prior to 2016:

The new version of the coaster will see a mix of black and red used on the track and supports, as seen in this update Great Adventure History.

“It is only fitting that this twisted makeover reunites The Joker with his partner in crime, Harley Quinn,” said Six Flags Great Adventure President John Fitzgerald. “As ultimate thrill seekers flock to our new, jaw-dropping coaster The Joker, family-sized thrills will be right next door with Harley Quinn Crazy Train.”

Harley Quinn Crazy Train focuses on gentle curves for thrills over the 1,181 feet of track, using a 28 foot tall lift hill to get the train moving at 22 miles per hour.   The renovated roller coaster should open sometime around the end of April, 2016.
