  5. Click here to visit the park website The park will feature 5 new coasters: Led Zeppelin The Ride-- B&M sitdown looping coaster Maximum RPM Premier Rides Coaster Midnight Rider Vekoma Mine Train Shake Rattle & Rollercoaster Slippery When Wet Premier Rides Suspended Family Coaster
  6. Recent reports of guest surveys at SeaWorld Orlando included the mention of a flying coaster. Possible ideas included a ray theme, with the trains at some point doing some kind of splash element like the Sheikra and Griffon coasters, creating a splash without getting riders soaked. This sounds like a great idea, and the ultra-competitive Orlando theme park market will require all the parks adding bigger, better new attractions to try to compete with Universal's addition of Harry Potter.
  7. Press Release From Six Flags Discovery Kingdom: Click to see the event information on the park's website I like the logo, and I really hope that Great Adventure rolls out a Holiday in the Park event next season. I miss Winter Lights...
  8. Hi Everyone! My name is Tom, but most people know me (at least on the web) as GAcoaster. I run a couple of websites, including AmusementPics.com, ParkNews.net, and JerseyJourneys.com, and run this site, GreatAdventureHistory.com with my friend Harry. I am a theme park junky and a photography junky, so the two naturally come together through my websites. Welcome to our new forums!

Not the tallest, fastest, wildest ride by any stretch, but an old fashioned fun ride!
