  1. I'm highly doubtful the governor makes the call on how much road salt to use and when to use it
  2. I had the same one! I earned a couple of free season passes with it. Then it turned into a Chase blue card...
  3. They used to have one through Chase which earned you tickets and season passes.
  4. We used to learn about the Jersey Devil in school. I still remember this:
  5. I would guess their Sky Screamer isn't tall enough to require any modifications. They have a 150' height limit and I'd guess theirs is within reach of rescue equipment.
  6. Some exciting news! It looks like our book is being carried in Target stores this Christmas. Be on the lookout for a great gift for the Great Adventure fan you know! It's supposed to be carried in the Target stores closest to the park, so if anyone see the books in their Target please take pictures and share them.
  7. Knott's is bringing back an updated version of the Bear-y Tales dark ride.
  8. I saw that now Yum Yum is doing a breakfast menu all day. Not sure if this is just for HITP or ongoing for next season.
  9. Google does periodic updates, but they really don't worry about what's been added or not. It's just luck of the draw as to when they update.
  10. Wow, such a slick graphic opening for the video, then Blair Witch style photography...
  11. Interesting takes on the current situation and possibilities coming up: https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2019/10/11/the-future-of-floridas-amusement-parks-is-about-to-get-really-complicated-thanks-to-seaworld-six-flags-and-an-onslaught-of-private-equity-f?utm_source=feature&utm_medium=home&utm_campaign=hpfeatures&utm_content=HomeTopFeature&fbclid=IwAR2e260l3eXhiNuUNx7z358NXHi5nTBbD0T7mMjz-HPf2FXrhHRIBj536g4
  12. Most of the complaints I see about Six Flags operations really vary from park to park. I think so much comes down to park leadership, with managers who are established doing better than ones who have just taken over. It takes a season or two of fine tuning to get things running the way they should. The biggest problem I've seen with Six Flags is inconsistency from manager to manager, and just when things hit their stride, they move the manager to another park.
  13. I believe that is the electrical shed that controls the lighting in the mall area. It makes sense that if they did a bunch of updates to the lighting they finally updated the shed that controls it as well.
  14. Six Flags really sees the membership program as a huge win, and adding more parks would simply increase that. When they were in talks to try and purchase SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment a few years ago one of the big things mentioned was that having more properties would simply increase their membership sales. Memberships are a predictable and steady year round income for the company, and that's what they're really working for, evening out the revenue across the whole year. More parks, even in close proximity like Dorney and GA would probably do more to boost both parks with pass sales. When you have several parks like this (SFA/KD, Great America/SFDK, Knott's/Magic Mountain, etc) this just gets more profitable.
  15. No, but H Partners who were the majority owners of Six Flags up until just a year or two ago wanted to merge the two companies. They were in talks 10+ years ago.
