  2. While I think there were both positive and negative aspects to the Time-Warner Aquisition of Six Flags, the positive aspects were very short term (mainly a solid parent company financially that could invest in the parks). While TW certainly improved theming at the parks, those themes completely destroyed much of each parks’ uniqueness in architecture and characters. I don’t think the individual parks needed to eliminate their unique characters when the TW characters were brought in. And, despite the TW emphasis on improved theming and improved attendance that came with it, we have certainly seen an abandoning of themes in recent years. In fact, I don’t even think of Six Flags as theme parks these days. They’ve become so much of everything that Walt Disney did not want with his creation of the first theme park.

    Six Flags Adds Five More Parks to US Portfolio

    I have a feeling Magic Waters Waterpark in Rockford, IL will be another Six Flags acquisition. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/illinois/articles/2018-05-24/rockford-park-district-mulls-sale-of-well-known-water-park

    ^ It could be done although it would be rather remote. I am not sure why they would want it that far off the beaten path. The current entrance and exit to Zumanjaro would need to turn into general pathways with the entrance to Zu moved closer to that ride's queue house.

    Where would the entrance be? There isn't really any space for that since El Diablo took the spot of Rolling Thunder's entrance. While the track may fit there, the queue and entrance don't seem to have a place to go

    You also have to bring into consideration Plaza Del Carnival and the Golden Kingdom which aren’t present in this recreation. It’s not really a perfect fit if you account for everything in my opinion.

    The no ride policy at Dorney is asinine. GADV is not always consistent with allowing rerides.

  12. This reminded me of the Bay Harbor restaurant at Cedar Point Marina or the old Captain Jacks at the former Disney Shopping Village.
  13. It's a shame this was never built. It looks like it would have been a cool dining experience and the park could use a table service restaurant.

    I feel like 1 of Hydra's train is worse than the other. One vibrates and rattles more throughout the ride. I also agree about the re-ride policy, it's annoying and I appreciate that Great Adventure allows re-rides since it saves so much time from having to walk through empty queues.

    I grabbed these screen shots from an 8mm film on YouTube. I wish there were more photos of this ride.

    Dorney Park 5-20-18

    Had a great day at Dorney Park last week, and got on a lot of rides. The crowds were very light and the weather was perfect. Unfortunately, Hydra closed mid-day and didn’t reopen. In the one front row ride I managed to get on Hydra, I had a very rough ride, and I don’t know if it became rough over the off season, or if it just had bad wheels. Thunderhawk was also closed due to retracking, but we did catch some test runs from it! I decided to take a ride on Monster which ended up being a huge mistake. I felt so nauseous on that ride as the cycle was too long, and I never feel sick on rides. Demon Drop was actually open and I got a few rides on it for my first time. It was easily the most intense drop tower I’ve ever ridden, and maybe even the most intense ride at Dorney. It still absolutely hate their no re-ride policy, and if that didn’t exist, I would’ve gotten so many more rides on the coasters. That policy majorly impacts my experience at Dorney in a negative way, and I hope that policy is repealed soon. We also spotted some reminiscence of Stinger in the form of T-Shirts, magnets, candy, and actually a sign pointing towards Stinger Dorney forgot to take down. Here was my ride count for the day: Talon 4x, Hydra 1x, Possessed 2x, Steel Force 4x, Demon Drop 3x, Monster 1x, Kaleidoscope 1x, Cedar Creek Flyers 1x Me: 17 Rides

    Here’s a rendering of a possible spot for a T-Rex/Big Raptor I made that fits where Rolling Thunder used to roar. It fits perfectly in that spot. I’d definitely rather see a Coaster than a flat package over there.

    I wonder we will get new ride next year? RMC T-Rex or Raptor would be big surprise to be addition for the park.

    Miscellaneous Mumblings

    Last summer when I moved into my new house I finally planted a peach tree. Noticed this today (see photo). I am not an expert but this looks promising!

    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?
