    Nice, my gift only has 4108 pieces. I am still working through section 2 of 6 of the build.

    25 FOR 20! The first map of 2020, January 1st, is the 25th map to our series and I'd like to celebrate with a special announcement! @EasternThrills and I will be attending the JERSEY DEVIL COASTER construction tour at ACE's Winter Adventure this year! It will be super cool to see the site up close and get some more details on what is to come! The park today also posted their first "Behind the Adventure" Episode for JERSEY DEVIL COASTER today and it looks absolutely brilliant! They also hinted at the arrival of the track and supports soon

    I made the suggestion to turn it into an indoor Member Lounge like some of the other SF parks have with soda machines - and therefore also an exclusive member shortcut.

    I already voted for "Yes, someday" but am not so sure now. I have heard that some people visiting the park alone have been stopped by security at the park, in some cases multiple times asking why they are there and other security guards asking for ID even if they were just walking around the park, taking pictures of rides or sitting at a bench. If someone was doing something suspicious or causing trouble, I can see security stopping people, but for someone doing nothing wrong, I don't feel like paying $50 or $60 to have that happen and take away any fun I had from visiting the park.

    I would vote for HITP over any other event because the ability to ride coasters in November and December and now having a around a 3 month offseason is what I consider to be one of the greatest things Six Flags has ever done.

    It is hard to believe the park has just wrapped up another decade. Be sure to vote for all your favorites from the 2019 season!

    FROM THE SIX After six days of modification, the updating of the December 14th map took longer than any other update thus far! The molds for the transfer track have been fully poured, while molds for the storage bays were constructed behind them. Several new excavations have appeared as well, including some for the end of the brake run and zero g stall!

    Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Seasons Greetings to all of our friends both old and new here at GAH!

    I have always thought the idea of Timber-town would be a great kids area revamp, since it’s next to Jersey Devil and it lurks in the woods (specifically the pine barrens).

    It looks like SeaWorld Orlando is getting another coaster for 2021, the project area is about 3.6 acres. https://www.thecoasterkings.com/seaworld-orlando-files-plans-for-2021-attraction/

    I was an Institutional Sales Manager at Great Adventure over 40 years ago. I met Butch and was fortunate to interact with so many beautiful animals. I held a tiger cub and remarked how soft and beautiful the cub was. Butch said she loves you. Her mother over there is a Siberian Tiger and is looking at you differently. How different I asked? The mother sees you as a plate of Spaghetti and Meatballs. Remember tigers are wild animals. I thought about this in 2003 when resident of a Harlem apartment building kept MIng a tiger in the apartment. My condolences to you and all of Butch's family. He was an amazing man.

    Very sad to hear that this special man has passed away. Thank you all for bringing Mr. Dring's many contributions to light and sharing your wonderful memories of him. When I first read this topic quite some time ago, I recall finding and bookmarking a 1998 NY Times article about how much love he poured into the safari and all the animals within. It can be viewed here: https://www.nytimes.com/1998/04/19/nyregion/in-person-creature-keeper.html It will never cease to amaze me that a single person could be such a fountain of knowledge about so many different types of animals.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR ! I just got around to finishing the final 2019 JERSEY DEVIL COASTER map, completing the collection of the whopping 24 MAPS that were pushed out last year from November 4th all the way until December 28th. Since today is the park's last day of operations, the park will be providing us with weekly construction updates via their social media pages. Therefore, maps will switch to a more weekly schedule and will not be as frequent as before. Nonetheless, these next few months are going to be an exciting bunch with vertical construction beginning in the near future! I have created a folder of every map created to date. If you would like to view it, I have provided the link below: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1OtyBIBPOceT7lC6iR2-rg9hVEk9ke2aM?usp=sharing

    SLOWLY CREEPING UP! Here is the map for December 27th! We have a myriad of new molds in for the zero-g stall, exit of the "crows nest" turnaround, and bunny hops leading into the brake run!

    HAVE A DEVILISH NEW YEAR! To celebrate the upcoming 2020, I am releasing a super-package of site maps today, which includes a whopping 4 COMPLETED MAPS! Below I have attached the maps for December 15th, December 19th, December 22nd, and December 24th! Most excitingly, we have our first pier caps in before the new year! Today I will be working on the maps for December 27th and December 28th, and come January of 2020 I will aim to finish the map for December 31st. Happy Holidays everyone! In addition to the maps, I was able to locate the firm that is supplying the park with many of their construction materials, including the forms for pouring the pier caps. You can read more on their website: https://surebuilt-usa.com/ For more on the concrete forms: https://surebuilt-usa.com/products/sureply-forming/ I was also able to find the form dealer, which is located on New Durham Road in Edison, New Jersey; the firm is known as Gamka.

    I apologize for the lack of maps recently! Along with the most recent update with a planned launch tomorrow (December 14th), I've actually had to rearrange and shift the entire surrounding area of the site due to a fairly substantial yet fluent inaccuracy. After tomorrow's December 14th map, we have over SIX ADDITIONAL maps dated before the end of the year! (12/15, 12/19, 12/21, 12/24, 12/27, 12/28). See you tomorrow for the map launch!

    Jeez, Hershey's operations are really declining. Hopefully it is just a temporary consequence from all the construction.

    I’m going to wait to see if the rides from LTSP that were removed for the JD coaster construction are up and running again this year. If they are up and running in different locations then I don’t see a kids area expansion for 2021.

    Wrong. 2020 is RMC Raptor (Jersey Devil Coaster). But in 2021, we will get new Kids Area Expansion aka Bugs Bunny Boomtown and DC Super Friends.

    I think we get a T-Rex or Raptor in 2021.

    While there is finally supposed to be a hotel coming near the park, it would be great to finally have a hotel as part of the park.

    Many of us have been waiting for them to finally build the Jersey Devil as a coaster for YEARS, and it has so much potential as a name that the theming should match it!

    The Safari Tour is great, but adding more "off-road" elements back into it would make it better.

    THE MELTING POINT Our December 12th map has officially become the single largest update in JERSEY DEVIL COASTER map history! From new footing molds to several identified columns and stakes, construction has shifted into fourth gear as the crew prepares to begin constructing the final molds in the coming weeks!

    The park installed a great ride, and it deserves to be kept up well.

    Even if the path doesn't re-open, just get rid of it because it's ugly!

    Adirondack Outlaw at Great Escape has a new proposed location near Condor. We won't know exactly where the ride will be located until the new site plan is made public. https://poststar.com/news/local/tall-great-escape-ride-to-be-placed-next-to-condor/article_081a337a-906c-5639-8fb9-274537ccf802.html

    Single rider lines really help to fill seats and help with groups where there is only one person who wants to ride a ride.

    Map drop! Doing my best to catch up on maps, as I'm at about an 8 day lag on construction () so here is the map for December 6th!

    I miss the Discover perks. 5% cashback on everything (10% in your first year) was pretty hard to beat. Hopefully this comes close.

    With the popularity of superhero movies and related media, I would love to see an increase in the entertainment budget and put on another stunt show. With Justice League, Cyborg, and Wonder Woman now, I think it's the perfect time to revive it. Also, any show in the showcase theater would also be a godsend for those extremely hot days.
