  4. ANSWER: When Time Warner acquired Six Flags Great Adventure they went through the entire property and looked for ways they could improve the theming in the park. Each and every building and structure was numbered as a master plan was developed. The Skeeball Barn happened to be building #28 and was used in the new name Studio 28 Arcade.

  5. I was so impressed with the park this year. When looking at theme parks as an industry, I tend to find that Six Flags is usually one of the lower-end companies but this year, they were top-notch. That's not to say that I don't love the park- I do, but typically Cedar Fair ends up having some nicer policies and better new additions. This year, I think Six Flags took the cake in terms of adaptability. They took this year that we were all given and made the best of it. I LOVE the new security screening. I hope that stays for years to come as it is much more efficient and probably saves them mone

  9. I was happy to see that Dutch Wonderland has an operating calendar up on their website for 2021. I haven’t visited that park in several years but it really is a great little family park that deserves to be kept operating.

  10. I've always wondered after seeing some of Premier's recent rides. Would it have been possible at any point in Chiller's lifespan in the park for Premier to convert the launching system from LIMs to LSMs? Sure they're more expensive, but they're supposedly more reliable than the LIMs. Who knows, maybe Chiller would still be in the park today.

  11. The lift will likely only have catwalks on the right hand side. The other angled side of the T-bar track ties is going to be for steel-wired protective netting. These same T-bar ties can be found on the midcourse and final brake runs and will likely follow the same pattern.

  12. Absolutely! At 45 degrees, it might actually be the steepest lift hill at the park aside from Joker. Ironic those two are in the same picture above

  13. Track piece NJ-7 being installed as part of JERSEY DEVIL COASTER’s 87 degree first drop, January 21, 2021 (photo courtesy of TheCoasterSpot) BREAKING: TWO MORE TRACK PIECES remain on JERSEY DEVIL COASTER. We could see a potential top-off in the next few hours if crews continue working today. If not, we will have a confirmed top-off TOMORROW! **We now know that yesterday, track piece NJ-9 was installed at the bottom of the drop. Installation this morning started with piece NJ-8.

  15. We are currently tracking progress on JERSEY DEVIL COASTER! We now know that two track pieces (NJ-1 nd NJ-2) were installed yesterday. As of right now, two more track pieces have been installed as of early this morning (NJ-3 and NJ-4) with one or two more potentially on their way. FIVE track pieces remain that have yet to be installed. We are awaiting updates on the whereabouts of construction for the next few hours and whether crews will begin building the drop or whether they will top-off the ride. Stay tuned!

  20. The supports for the lift hill are up, but track is not yet up. The lift and drop will most likely be the last pieces of track to go in in late January/early February.

  21. Today, we will be taking a look at Joker's Revenge at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. It has been 25 years since the park was acquired by Six Flags. I will be telling you about the history of the attraction right now. During construction of Fiesta Texas, a Vekoma Hurricane coaster was being developed. It would be a unique ride that would be the first of its kind in the United States and go backwards. The coaster was going to be named Wacky Twister and open in 1992 along with the park, but this was abandoned. However, the Vekoma Hurricane project was revived in 1995 and the ride would inste

  25. Today, December 30, 2020, crews installed two pieces of the curved drop out of the mid-course brake run. Crews remain on pace to complete the cutback turn-around element by the end of this week given progress continues over New Years Day.

  31. If I was in charge, I'd add some shows to the place. You know, stunt shows in the Batman arena, magic/dance shows in the Showcase Theater. And perhaps concerts or other events (Monster Truck show) in the Northern Star arena. Yeah I'm whistling Dixie here, but frick; got to have some use rather then vacant buildings

  32. This would definitely elevate that section of the park. It’s the only lakefront area in the park and I’d love to see it be more special and appreciated.

  33. Most parks do have temperature checks, but Knoebel's has no entrance, from the main parking you kinda just wander in wherever past some picnic pavilions, and there are ways to get in from the Campground too. I was at the park twice this year, they remind you to where masks often (especially at Phoenix) and I think I had one maybe two sanitizers not working, and I use that stuff as I exit or enter each ride.

  34. I for one would like to see Mind Eraser at Six Flags America get the treatment that SFNE's ME got (new trains with vest restraints and a rename/repainted scheme)

  36. Here is an odd little tidbit that I am not sure they were counting on: - Jersey Devil will be the park's 6th highest coaster (Kingda Ka, Nitro, El Toro, Green Lantern, Bizarro, and JD) - Jersey Devil will be the park's 6th longest coaster (Nitro, El Toro, Green Lantern, Bizarro, Kingda Ka, and JD) - Jersey Devil will be the park's 6th fastest coaster (Kingda Ka, Nitro, El Toro, Green Lantern, Bizarro, and JD) Interesting stats (6-6-6) for a roller coaster themed to the Jersey Devil!
