THE JOKER is one of the newest coasters at Six Flags Great Adventure and takes Guests on a thrilling experience as they travel up a 12-story, 90-degree hill. The 4-D, free-fly coaster “wreaks havoc as you flip head-over-heels along the weightless journey”, per Six Flags.

When some Guests were riding THE JOKER, they came to a sudden stop while being suspended 12-stories in the air for several minutes. According to some TikTok users, the sensors went off so the workers had to stop the ride while they looked into what the issue was. Once they figured out the problem, they were able to restart the ride, sending Guests straight down the drop without any warning!

Six Flags Great Adventure describes THE JOKER as:

After heading straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, this 4-D, free-fly coaster wreaks havoc as you flip head-over-heels along the weightless journey. You will experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane, along with unexpected drops as you tumble from one level to the next. The wing seats amp up the pandemonium since you will experience all of this chaos with no track above or below – just the sky, ground and adjacent Great Lake churning around you!

Six Flags Great Adventure recently removed the meal deal add-on from the season pass and is no longer an option after one Guest, who is also known as the Six Flags Scoundrel, noticed holes in the offering. You can read more about that here.
