    I'm convinced Six Flags Fun is actually a bot arranging "RMC Raptor 2020" in different sentences, all saying the same thing.

    Where? What did you change? Furthermore, "fine I fixed it" should be "Fine, I fixed it." I am not trying to be a jerk but I am sure everyone would appreciate it if your posts were submitted properly to make reading them easier.

    Reread the name of this thread.... NOT GREAT ADVENTURE. STOP TALKING ABOUT A RAPTOR at GA. You are making this whole forum rather unpleasant to visit anymore. Every single post , on every single thread , across the entire site, you say the exact same thing. STOP.

    I’m actually kinda surprised so many people agreed with a Kids Section not just being a want but a need essentially. Yes we all want a kick ass custom coaster that blows people away. But man would I love to be able to spend money on a ticket for me and my daughter and have a blast of a time. She still talks about Harley Quinn which is awesome but that’s all she has to talk about. She comes to live with me for the summer in a couple of weeks and her entire want list for the summer is “beach trip and every single amusement park to ride all the rides and roller coasters”. I wish more than anything six flags could offer my daughter, myself, and all the other families with kids under 12 more options. You’re all right, something has to be done due to competition. ....... but will it actually get done? That’s the question

    Could be a great opportunity for a Justice League stunt show sometime in the future. Even though they're usually cheesy, it's still nice to be able to sit down after so much walking and take in a show. Also, we still only have 2 water rides in the park (Congo and Log Flume). There's some leftover real estate next to Justice League (old Musik Express/Spinmeister spots) that would be a great area for some type of Aquaman themed water ride. Those hot summer days really make me yearn for the days of Movietown Water Effect and its giant splash waves.

    If you could make one non-attraction improvement to the park what would you do? I would add more trees and water fountains on the lines would be amazing! Also of course free bins in stations for glasses phones keys etc.

    I agree with 29yrs. There's only so many times you can ride the biggest attractions, and there middle ground is sorely lacking. They have the top tier attractions down pat, and the low tier (like children's lands and path side attractions) relatively well filled, but the middle ground of flat rides and family entertainment is near nonexistent. They don't have any shows or parades during the summer season, they ripped out most of the special "nook and cranny" things like the Axis Chemical Wash or the Tiger Shows, and if you're not riding things there's literally nothing for you to do. They have multiple stadiums that sit empty for most of the season, why not throw a few special acts or dance parties in there? Why not make themed parades that travel throughout the park? Just do something!

    Thank you, Harry, for the appointment and kind words. And, "thank you" to all of the other key leaders at GA History for the warm welcome. As I'm sure it has been for each of you, Great Adventure has been in my blood (and mind) since my pre-teen years. I am eagerly looking forward to helping out wherever I can. As I have mentioned to Harry many times before, the historical content of this website, in my opinion, is without compare. I'm truly honored to work with each of you as the best theme park history site on the web only gets better. The greatest day in my life is here.

    Realistically an improved kids area is the smartest move for the park due to the immense competition that will be coming to the area very soon so it is very likely that is what will be coming next year. I'm happy that we gained a decent amount of flats over the years (besides El Diablo lol) since I remember the days back when we were all demanding for them, but I'm still dreaming of a new and unique coaster. I guess I'll keep dreaming for now

    For anyone who follows these yearbook pages, we haven't given up on Timeline Tuesdays. We have been very fortunate to receive a wave of "new" content for the site and my time has been spent converting the images and videos so that they can be shared here on the site. Yearbooks will resume soon.

    Once again youre posting nonsense about GA in a NON Great Adventure thread. So i can not understand why, after repeatedly not following the rules, as well as everyone telling you to stop, youre still posting this stuff. Perhaps the mods need step in with warnings, etc ?

    I wasn't expecting to get back to the park this season but being an hour away on Tuesday, I decided to go for a few hours to finally be able to say I was at Great Adventure on a day in January. I was expecting it to be extremely crowded with the temperature almost 60 degrees during the day, bring a friend free and fireworks. It was crowded when I first got to the park around 3 but not as bad as I was expecting and people started to leave around 6. Justice League was first since the line wasn't too bad yet. The projections before the barrels that fall weren't working but if you shot the area where the projections were supposed to be, they still registered. Otherwise, the ride was excellent like usual. Nitro was about 15 minutes. There isn't anything much better than to ride a B&M Hypercoaster (or any major coaster) in January without having to travel. After Batman and The Dark Knight I went to SkyScreamer with only a 2 cycle wait. It was kind of cold at the top, although still tolerable. Skull Mountain had some added theming for 2019. There was a bat flying around the station and flying in and out of the ride area right before the station. I wanted to get a picture but the bat was moving so fast and since I was going to board the next train, my phone was secured in a zippered pocket with not enough time to get to the phone before it went back into the ride area. I got dinner early thinking lines might be bad for food later with some of the places closed. After dinner I went back to Nitro, then again to SkyScreamer with no wait. The rest of the time, I basically kept going to Nitro, SkyScreamer and Skull Mountain including a re-ride at both Nitro and Skull Mountain also stopping at Harley Quinn Crazy Train since there was no wait. The Joker was closed the entire time I was at the park. As much as I would have liked to have stayed for the fireworks, I knew I wouldn't get home until 12:15 or 12:30 am at the earliest and left just after 8. It was a nice way to end the season. With the offseason just over 3 months, it doesn't seem so bad anymore when a few years ago it would have been over 2 months with no coasters and the offseason around half over at this point. Ride Count: Nitro, 4 Skull Mountain, 5 SkyScreamer, 3 Batman, 1 The Dark Knight, 1 Justice League, 1 Harley Quinn Crazy Train, 1

    Look at what I saw traveling northbound on the Turnpike today. Sorry, I know that the picture is VERY blurry and low quality. I almost considered taking a picture while driving, but I really wouldn't recommend that. Instead, I followed the truck as it took Exit 10 (making myself late for a dinner with friends that I was on my way to). I pulled over on the shoulder after the toll plaza and took this shot as the truck sped by. Again, it's really poor quality but I'm 95.7% sure I saw El Diablo being trucked north. Either that or it was just some swamp gas from a weather balloon trapped in a thermal pocket and reflecting the light from Venus.

    ^The question is how many people are they alienating by not having shows? Large segments of the population in general including young, old, and families may opt for a place that has entertainment in addition to rides. Not every person who potentially visits is a roller coaster or thrill ride fan.

    After several months of being away from the park I finally had an opportunity to visit Great Adventure on Saturday with some family members. We had a great time! Unlike so many other trip reports of mine, this one will be without photos. I promise, photos will be included with my next trip report. We arrived at approximately 1:30pm and drove right up and into the toll booths. On the way, it was easy to see the progress the park is making on disassembling the King Cobra slide so that it can be relocated to Mexico. Parts of the slide and the tower supports could be seen both inside and outside Hurricane Harbor's perimeter fence. Further down the road, the runners of the annual Wild Safari Invitational race dotted the horizon and the area beyond the old Safari ticket booths. We proceeded to the preferred parking lot thanks to my new for 2018 Diamond Elite Membership. Having read several horror stories about how lengthy and slow the security check lines have been at times this summer, the full queues leading to the guards had me concerned. However, it was truly impressive how quickly they got guests through the scanners. If they were that efficient at airports, airplane travel would be much less of a hassle. Once inside the park our first destination was the Safari Off Road Adventure. The queue was almost completely full and the line took approximately an hour. The one question that had many people around us talking was why the last set of queue bars leading to the photo tent does not have a canopy cover especially since this is the set that would most likely be full of waiting quests as its towards the front of the line. They need to install a tent over this set of switchbacks. The safari was a lot of fun as usual and the animals were plentiful. It was a little disappointing that the trucks pretty much kept to the paved roadway which sort of negated the "off road" aspect of the attractions. Unfortunately the only time they went off road was to cut through the grass between the elephants and the Wilde Plains gates. What made it even worse was all the ostriches and zebras could be seen off in the distance lining the only roadway section which we didn't follow. Instead we had to view them all the way across the Afrikka section from afar. The rest of the safari was cool and it was exciting to see so many lions out and about. The guide said that the park now has three prides of lions. By the time we got back into the park it was already after 5pm so we grabbed dinner at the Best of the West. The line was short, the service was good, and the food was tasty. It seemed like it had been forever since I ate there and I think I enjoyed the atmosphere as much as the food. After dinner, we proceeded to visit the indoor terror trails. For years, I always went through them with someone who like myself isn't easily scared. It is funny how much of a different experience it is when a member of your party doesn't really like to scared. This added a whole new dimension of excitement. Out of the four indoor trails the one that really stood out as a breath of fresh air was the new Reflections of the Dead. The mirror maze, which can be found inside the former King Pin/Heist building near the Big Wheel, is really first class and for lack of a better word a "professional" attraction. The glass mirror panels are so clean mostly because guests are required to wear plastic gloves going through the maze. Several surprises await inside the maze which add to the excitement. Next up was the Unleashed show at the Showcase Theatre. If anyone who makes decisions at the park has doubts as to if park guests want shows all they have to do is check out the popularity of this show. The theater doors had to close early do to capacity with every seat occupied. The show was a quality production with several high energy acts that kept the audience clapping and cheering throughout the performance. Be sure to check this one out. After the show we tackled several of the outdoor terror trails. Once again it was a mix of old and new. What I was really happy to see was that even the trails that are the staples of Fright Fest were infused with new life in the forms of repositioned walkways, additional buildings to pass through, and a bunch of new props and special effects. Even though they may sound familiar the trails had a lot of new twists and turns which took me by surprise. It was great to see how they were enhanced and in some cases rethemed. More exciting all around! At this point it was approximately 10pm and we decided to work our way towards the front entrance. Even though we had an express terror trail pass which gave us quick entry to the haunts, there were a handful of things we didn't have time to experience. Although that might sound disappointing, it was nice to know that Fright Fest had so many experiences it would be tough to experience them all. It really did seem "bigger and better" than ever! Thanks Great Adventure for a terrorific 2018 Fright Fest!

    When Six Flags makes images like that that can be used for any park, they just pick a roller coaster that looks nice. They don't put one there like it is a teaser. I see Great Adventure advertisements all the time with I Box coasters and wing coasters on them all the time for years now. Do we have one? No
