  1. Normally I don't do water rides but even I'm excited by the commercial!
  2. If SFA could finally build a restroom near S:ROS and hype as an "improvement for 2019" then I'm sure Great Adv. could do the same by adding LED lights to the Big Wheel.
  3. I remember only one ice cream truck and it was in Frontier Adventures : the main reason I remember is because it was a generic ice cream truck in the best-themed area. If Great Adv. ever brings back the ice cream trucks they should be themed(in appearance and music style) to their location(ex: Conestoga wagons for Frontier Adv./Plaza De Carnival that play mariachi music).
  4. If no one in Las Vegas wants it then SF should get it and retheme it to The Flash.
  5. When I was much younger I adopted an orange-colored kitten.He was pretty tame,but he loved to climb over EVERYTHING!I can only imagine what a tiger would be like.....
  6. The one I got also had the $249.99 price-but for SFA as well as Great Adv..I said it would be out of my price range for both because-A:SFA is my home park(I live very close!) and B:I've been to Great Adv./NJ enough to know what I'm getting into. Hopefully SF puts some serious thinking /planning into the hotels,and by that I mean they either lease out space to a chain(like Great Wolf)or be like Carowinds and buy into a franchise. Also,when I took the survey I said that the hotels should appeal to both registered guests(by having special incentives like early entry) and non-guests(like restaurants/nightclubs that nearby residents would/could go to),
  7. Speaking for myself , I deliberately take as little as possible to avoid losing/damaging things.Case in point:most times I go to Great Adv. or SFA the ONLY things I bring into the park are my car keys and season pass.
  8. Here's my two cents(for the time being):some of Disney's classic rides -specifically the DL/WDW/Tokyo versions of Space Mt. and Big Thunder -have lots of theming , but the actual rides are so-so;on the other hand,SF has extremely thrilling rides with little themeing. I also think SF's "problems"(if you want to call it that) is that they stick rides where they'll fit,and give it a name that has nothing to do with the section it's in(S:UF & GL at the Boardwalk,etc.);also when they did use themeing it seems they let it fall apart after a few years(Houdini's pre-show has seemingly been on the fritz for years now). A few places have rides with minimal theming but don't seem cheap or "ghetto"-such as Dollywood and BGW.A lot of their rides have the theming at the station only(such as Thunderhead,Tenn. Tornado,LNM,etc)-but then again those particular parks have exceptional natural surroundings.
  9. Viper had the park's best station and one of the best queues(second only to B:TR's and Skull Mt.'s original queues).I wish El Toro had kept the "ghost town" walkway-at least it gave partial shade on blazing-hot days.
  10. Short answer : I wish. Long answer : From my understanding,finding people good enough for SF's superheroes is almost as tough as being a Disney princess: DC Comics has final say who gets what part,and they can be really picky,even for characters who are "fully covered" like Batman and The Flash.I remember about a year or two ago on these same forums this topic came up and a girl who had supposedly played Wonder Woman (about 10 years earlier) posted similar stories.
  11. I think Six Flags should go all-out for their 60th anniversary in 2021 and give all parks new rides.The primary ones would be second-generation Condors and Enterprises as well as Tilt-a-Whirls.At one time most SF parks HAD those types of rides but were removed;if SF could stick Larson Loops in every park,why not replace former rides with updated versions?
  12. I haven't been to the park yet this year, but Sundays tend to be the slowest-especially in the late morning/early afternoon.
  13. Maybe they could bring back Viper as a shuttle coaster. The crazy part is that Premier Rides(who built Chiller among others) bought up the rights to the TOGO rides(like Viper);heck their website features Ultra Twister in the "Ride Maintenance" section. Maybe the new Viper could be a Mr. Freeze clone, but instead of a straight vertical spike, it's an upwards inline twist inside a ringed tower.
  14. Maybe for 2020 Great Adv. could start using the Great Arena for live stunt shows like Medieval Nights or Dixie Stampede and replace the stunt arena with a "flying cinema" like Soarin' Over California.
