Scream Machine No More

Six Flags Great Adventure has announced via Facebook that the Great American Scream Machine will give its last rides on July 18th.

The ride's going out in style, though, and major credit to the park for giving guests time to get in a last ride. The park is actually offering "double rides" on July 11th and 18th to patrons. They are also hosting a Sendoff Contest that you can enter to win entry to exclusive ride time on it's final night. Finally, the last train will have it's seats auctioned off to benefit the National Roller Coaster Museum and Archives.

Read more and find out how to enter the contest here. I'm sad to see a big ride like Scream Machine go, but it's also exciting to see how their plans for 2011 develop.
