Harry Takes a First Spin on The Joker at Six Flags Great Adventure

© Six Flags Great Adventure
This is "Harry," and he was lucky enough to be one of the very first test dummy (literally) riders on the all-new Joker roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure.  Obviously it takes a rather brave rider to be one of the first on a new coaster, but from the looks of it Harry had what it takes.

And thankfully for us, Harry decided to strap on his chest-mounted GoPro camera, so that we could all experience the thrills and flips offered by The Joker.  Here's how Harry's ride went:

The Joker is a 4-D Free Fly coaster created by S&S, only the second of its kind to open.  Harry's journey took him up to 120 feet above the park, and as documented by the video contained plenty of flips during the ride.

Enough about Harry, though I'm sure we're all a bit jealous of him, it's great to see The Joker coming to life at Six Flags Great Adventure.  The theme park notes that now they will continue on fine tuning the ride's controls, complete exhaustive testing, and obtain New Jersey certifications before visitors can board - that's still planned for Memorial Day weekend!
