After 21 years in operation, Great American Scream Machine at Six Flags Great Adventure closed for good on July 18th, 2010. The coaster will be replaced by a new attraction in 2011, believed to be Chang from Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom however nothing has been officially announced as of yet. When Scream Machine first opened in 1989 it was undoubtedly the most badass coaster in the area; unfortunately with newer coasters being smoother and less jarring, Scream Machine was relegated to “old rough coaster” status by the general public and even by some coaster aficionados.

The following video is a tribute to this coaster that was loved by the masters of defensive riding and loathed by the virtual rag dolls!
