    Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    Maybe safety concerns or PA mandate? They had to stop single riders on the Ferris Wheel due to changes in PA law. Society tends to not to be friendly to single people. Either way it stinks.

    Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    I thought maybe it was for capacity reasons with them not wanting to take extra time to group people together in the station but that doesn't seem like an issue with the similar type rides at Volcano Bay and Holiday World. Holiday World even has a single rider line for their water coaster.

    Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    It would be like sharing a log/boat on a flume. Wonder why the change?

    Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    Breaker's Edge supposedly doesn't allow single riders. Very disappointing when a couple of months ago Hershey had said single riders were allowed. I had just expected when you got to the loading area they would let you ride with a group of 2 or another single rider.

    Looking at Queue Times, I'm kind of surprised at the wait times today. Almost hour waits for many of the coasters and Sky Screamer.

    Rides for the larger Guest

    Your doing a great job! Keep it up!! (Not that you need me to motivate you) I feel for you. I'm about 5'10" maybe 5'11" at 250 now. When I was 230 I had trouble with all of the coasters. El Toro I could get to lock but it was a painful ride. I could get the belt to snap in on Bizarro but the over the shoulder harness wouldn't make the fist click until I used the G force of the first loop to pull it down a little more. I think its row 5 of Bizarro that has extra straps on one of the seats for larger riders. NItro I was always able to get the lap bar to go just passed the line to say its good. That one may work for you. There was one time that I went to skull mountain with my daughters. The youngest wanted to ride with me. I was crushed when they told me she couldn't ride with me. Her night was ruined. She didn't enjoy anything else that day. Girls. Sheesh. Weight loss is never easy. Its great that you're doing what it takes to get yourself healthier. If you can keep this pace you will find more and more coasters by the end of August or before.

    Hurricane Harbor OPENING DAY 5/20

    Sounds like a good trip, pretty rare for HH not to be crowded anymore.

    Think I’m going to pull the old “car trouble” gimmick a few times over the next few weeks now that daily operations are starting. Haven’t been to the park yet this season. Need to resolve my coaster withdraw symptoms without my kids. Still furious I’ve been to Dollywood 3 times now and lightning rod has been down every time. Some nitro will put me in a better mood.

    New for 2018-- Cyborg Spin

    This will definitely be a fun ride to watch especially at night and possibly from a distance lol. I have to wonder how many people will attempt to ride it and then want to ride it again.

    ^That’s correct. They said in the presentation today that the parks were selected based on where a lot of single day ticket sales were coming from. People from the Houston area were visiting Fiesta Texas, people from Phoenix were visiting Magic Mountain. A lot of people from Oklahoma come to Arlington for a Cowboys or Rangers game and may be interested in visiting Over Texas next to the stadiums. Darien Lake is close to a few other Six Flags parks. According to the 2017 TEA/AECOM Attendance Report, the water parks in Houston and Phoenix are ranked 12th and 13th for highest attendance in North America.

    The Park was empty only a hand full of people in the wave pool
  22. I have scored the internet for pictures or descriptions on how the ride harness or seat belts work so i can limit my walk of shames. I would like to see if anyone else who is of Large Size has found rides they can fit on. I am 6'5 395 lbs (Losing more weekly about 6-10 lbs a week). I will list the rides i have tried and my results. if another else can also do the same this might help us larger guests not have to suffer from the dreaded walk of Shame. Skull mountain Pull bar restraint first seat in car for taller guests NO issues at all getting on this ride. Sky ride - Simple get through the door and off you go Justice league Pull down lap bar Can not ride this is any more then 1 other guest the bar will not give a green light to the ride operator. Front row is best for taller guests. Bumper cars - over the shoulder strap i was able to squeeze this on when i was 500lbs so this ride should be no problems Dark knight - push down single lap bar .had my son push this lap bar down another 4" and i still did to get the green light from the operator. -- Walk of shame ride for me Congo Rapids - Velcro seat belt - Tight fit but if i put it above my belly buldge i was able to ride. this strap did come undone a couple times when the boat bumped into things. Buccaneer - Lap Bar i would suggest sitting with the single lap bar there is no issue at all on this ride. Batman the ride Over head harness with seat belt - Not even a chance as the molded seat is not made for large guests - Walk of shame ride King da ka Over head harness with seat belt - i am about a inch away from having this buckled an the yellow line showing - Walk of shame ride for now

    Interestingly Jeff Seibert (GM of SFFT) was on site at Splashtown yesterday as the deal was announced. It appears he may be managing both parks in this deal:

    Special Memorial Day Dining Offer

    You should probably still contact the GR (live chat on the website is pretty good), but my guess is that it may happen automatically for either. Deluxe-to-Premium has been the deal they've been selling for probably over a year now, so that's been on the site like that for a while. As far as I can remember, this weekend is the first time they've ever offered a Basic-to-Deluxe deal, so they probably didn't update the text on the site.
  25. Opening Day Hurricane Harbor First trip of the Season. I Arrived at the Water park right at 10:25 anticipating confusion with the new membership passes. Looks like they have the first 4 rows blocked off for membership parking. When entering the park, they have added X-ray scanners to the security lines which will speed things up greatly. I am forced to carry my own beverages into the park and care a medial note and card so I normally do not get much hassle at the security check point. This time through I was informed of a change that I could only bring in products that Coca-Cola sponsor (which I find out being this is for medical purposes). I will confirm that later during my next trip and stop by guest relations. The Park was empty and when I mean empty the wave pool only had my group of 5 and another couple until around 1:30pm. I took a quick walk around the park and it looks like they have added plaster beach chairs all over the place. They also made the left side of the Wave pool the members only seating area (these spots must be reserved online the night prior just like the preferred parking at the main park). King Cobra was closed but the other slides and rides in the park were fully operational. I managed to get in a lot of the slides as there was zero wait. They only thing that slowed me down was the flights of stairs to each attraction. We stop to each lunch at 3:00 right before the down pour which closed the park. After lunch we transferred to the main park to finish out our day. See below the slides I conquered my first day Boreas x 2 Eurus x2 Zephyrus x1 Nortus x1 Bada Bing x1 Bada Bang x1 Bada Boom! X1 Big Bambu x1 Reef Runner x1 Big Wave Racer x4 Blue Lagoon (Most of the Day) Cannonball x1 Wahini x1 Hurricane Mountain x4 Six Flags Skull Mountain x3 Justice league x5 Sky ride x 2 Bumper cars x1 Congo rapids x 3 Buccaneer x 1
  26. I received the Six Flags Great Adventure Newsletter today. It mentions that if you buy a basic meal plan you'll automatically get upgraded to Deluxe or buy the Deluxe and get upgraded to the Premium. When you click through to the website, the deluxe to premium sale is listed but not the basic to deluxe. I even placed the basic meal plan in the cart with no change. Does anyone know who I can contact about this? This is the text from the newsletter: Special Memorial Weekend Dining Offer After you buy your 2018 Season Pass, add on your 2018 Dining Pass to save hundreds of dollars on food at the park all year. Buy your Dining Pass online during our Memorial Weekend Sale and you'll get a free upgrade to the next highest level.

    The only park they would not get is Clementon due to Great Adventure. I don't think Cedar Fair would take it either due to Dorney. Perhaps Hershey or Palace would end up taking it

    I don't know why anyone would wear their glasses on Toro without straps anyway tbh. I always have straps on my sunglasses while riding and no one has ever said anything, including this past Sunday.
