    It does seem operations at the parks in Pennsy have gone downhill. Very disappointed that Hershey had so many rides closed this year. Through my last two visits to GADV, they have been running El Toro pretty poorly. I was there Sunday and El Toro, Runaway Mine Train, and Kingda Ka were only operating single trains. Perhaps it was because those three were nearing the end of their operating season? Then again, Bizzaro was running two trains and that closes down at the same time too. Of those four I wanted to before the North end of the park is closed for HITP, I only made it on Bizarro as the other three had long slow moving lines due to single train operations.

    Totally hear you. Things have gotten A LOT better at GAdv (not to mention worse elsewhere.)
  4. I miss the Discover perks. 5% cashback on everything (10% in your first year) was pretty hard to beat. Hopefully this comes close.
  5. I was just at SF Mexico and the DC Super Friends area is super cute. Also the theming is less-involved than something like an LTS, which saw its theme fixtures decay, fade, and rot over time under neglect. Would be a nice addition, IMO.

    Great job on Justice League. I can never seem to get past 180,000.
  10. I'm glad Wonder Woman is on the list. I was hoping it would have been open for Worldwide Koaster Kids Day back in July. The only thing variable is weather for the 29th (for me at least).

    Evolution

    Kinda awesome to see this ride still getting some (probably much needed) love two decades after its debut.
  12. It is great to hear you had such a good time at the park. Great score on Justice League! Great Adventure has to be one of the best parks for allowing rerides on a consistent basis. That is such a nice perk for visitors when attendance is low. Nice trip report and I was happy to see you included ride counts!

    I wasn't sure about going to the park yesterday because I thought with it would be kind of crowded. It was warm with the temperature reaching almost 70 degrees, NYC and Philadelphia school districts closed, bring a friend free and free admission for the military. Crowd levels were not at all what I was expecting, the park was empty with basically no lines for anything except Kingda Ka and The Skyway. It was a lot of fun to just walk around the park knowing you can just walk onto almost any ride and in most cases re-ride as much as you wanted. I took advantage of the low crowds to ride Justice League without anyone else in the ride vehicle and try to see if I could find which targets gave more points and without having to compete with others in the vehicle for the same targets my best score was just under 320,000. I want to eventually try to get over 500,000 points which seems kind of difficult. Even with the low crowds, coasters like Nitro and Skull Mountain were still running multiple trains and at Skull Mountain, the ride operators were literally running to check the lap bars. Skull Mountain felt like it was running slower in the final helix than normal. The Dark Knight was not running the pre-show which I was happy about since that it meant instant access to the ride without having to wait for the pre-show doors to open and then watch the video. I also thought it was great that all rides were open except in the case of a breakdown. On a Monday in November Great Adventure is able to have all the rides open and most food places open yet Hersheypark has 30+ rides closed on weekends. I remember in the early 2000's, out of Great Adventure, Dorney and Hershey, I thought Great Adventure was the worst run of the 3 parks for many reasons. Now it's the opposite and I think Great Adventure is run much better than Dorney and Hershey and it's not even close. I was also hoping to get some final rides at the rides that were closing for the season. When I was riding Runaway Mine Train I saw Bizarro was closed and I don't think it re-opened the rest of the day. Zumanjaro was closed and Kingda Ka had also broken down with the 1 train running on the launch track with riders. I think both rides might have re-opened but never got back to that section of the park before closing. Even missing out on those rides, it was still an excellent trip to the park, probably the best one for me in a year and a half. Ride Count: Nitro, 6 Justice League, 5 The Dark Knight, 2 Skull Mountain, 5 Runaway Mine Train, 2 SkyScreamer, 2 El Toro, 1 Batman, 1 Green Lantern, 1
  15. I had the same one! I earned a couple of free season passes with it. Then it turned into a Chase blue card...
  16. I also would, there have been a few times I have worn shorts and a t shirt to HITP when it's been warm enough although I usually bring a light jacket as well. I could handle a 3 minute coaster even if it was cold out.
  17. That looks cool. If the new version of the card has different choices (like the Disney credit card), I'd like to see a card with Nitro on it.
  18. Who here would actually ride Nitro in T Shirt and Shorts? I would.
  19. They used to have one through Chase which earned you tickets and season passes.
  20. Could be worse, Minneapolis has already had 6ins of snow this season. My professor said that before an exam-which started before the snow started at 11, it was snowing at 11:35 when I left.
  21. It feels strange that yesterday I was walking around Great Adventure with the temperature close to 70 and now today there is snow on the ground.
  22. If the Six Flags branded credit card is a rewards card with the ability to use points on season passes, memberships or other Six Flags items, I would consider applying. I used to have a Universal credit card that had Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure tickets as rewards but it got changed to a regular Chase credit card years ago.
  23. Here comes the Six Flags credit card. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/credit-one-bank-becomes-proud-partner-of-six-flags-300956013.html
