  1. Yesterday
  2. Snake Pit

    Anyone else see the Snake Pit becoming a new store or food stand akin to Snowy's (Metro Grill) and Ice Works (Munchopolis)? If the structure isn't too far gone from being repaired, it could be a nice compliment to Cyborg next year.
  3. Six Flags Additions for 2018

    Great America and Great Escape are showing up on the Holiday in the Park page now. https://www.sixflags.com/holiday-in-the-park

    (Wispers to self) "fonts"
  5. Last week
  6. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    Yeah, the Orlando parks all close the water rides for rehab this time of year. With the weather being hit or miss (cold one week, warm the next) it's usually a slower time for the water rides anyway. All the waterparks are closed for cold weather (again) this week.
  7. 2019 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    Brining up the stunt arena keeps me wondering about the future of Dead Man's Party as i think most of the other versions of that show are inside if i am not mistaken, but there's still the Concert venue on the other end of the park (could make sense for a Raptor too, right?)
  8. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    We went this week last Jan. and Journey to Atlantis was down. It's their yearly maintenance for it.
  9. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    It has two spotlights, can't remove them without leaving holes.
  10. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    Well she only got 4 in at Seaworld... Journey to Atlantis was down. She is at 180 now... one behind me.
  11. What song reminds you of GAdv.

    For me it's "Mambo No.5" by Lou Bega.It was a new song that was starting to get airplay when I first went to Great Adv. in Sept. 1999(long live Coaster Celebration!).Now every time people talk about that one-hit wonder I think of coasters!
  12. Theme Park Skylines

    Kings Dominion has always had a cool skyline:at first it was just the Eiffel Tower,but then The Lost World,Shockwave,Dominator,etc. grew up around it. Also I'd give an honorable mention,believe it or not, to Seaside Heights-especially when they still had Funtown Pier.Coming across the bridge towards Seaside-especially in the early evening when it start getting dark-and seeing the rides lit up against the ocean was amazing.I'm glad Casino Pier is still around,but seeing TWO piers in the distance was something amazing to me.
  13. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    Does it still have the cop car spotlight on it?
  14. What song reminds you of GAdv.

    Great Adventure is by a lake. So this fits!
  15. Theme Park Skylines

    I like skylines where you can see the coasters from a far distance. This includes Cedar Point, Great Adventure, Hersheypark, and Magic Mountain.
  16. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    I bought a new (to me) car today. Its a 2008 Ford Crown Vic Interceptor, a retired Federal admin car which is low wear.
  17. Misc GA Mumblings

    Because if you can talk to someone about fonts, you can talk about anything!
  18. Misc GA Mumblings

    Brick from The Middle would find this interesting.
  19. Theme Park Skylines

    Dorney has a nice skyline, it looks like a mountain range of rollercoaster hills. The Moreys Piers also have a nice skyline out over the beach.
  20. Misc GA Mumblings

    The font was also on the front of Tavern on the Green as well
  21. Theme Park Skylines

    What are your guy’s favorite theme Park Skylines? One of my favorites has to be either Cedar Points or the whole Walt Disney world Complex. At Cedar Point you get to see it on that giant roadway to the park for miles and you can see a lot of the parks at WDW from other park’s rides, which is awesome.
  22. Neil said at Winter Adventure that it’s an ongoing project. We’ll see what the future holds though.
  23. AVAILABLE: 1992 Guidebook

    Any word on the availability of this item, as well as your others? … Yes, I am aware of the date on which the original sales listing had been posted created for this item. No harm in asking, right?! LOL Thanks so much! ChrisJ
  24. AVAILABLE: 1989 Pamphlet

    Still available? I sure hope so!
  25. Sorry to hear about Dan. He was wonderul!.And your correct he and I as well as everyone thought of our jobs as something bigger. Not just a pay check.
  26. Six Flags Additions for 2018

    I'm surprised by how much SFA is actually doing this year.I already knew of the improved kiddie-river ride,but the upgrades to the wave pool and the original slides are an unexpected(though very necessary)bonus.I wonder if the "backstage improvements" will include restrooms back towards Batwing or a walkway connecting Gotham to Coyote Creek,
