    Six Flags Great Adventure 2020 Addition Poll

    How many times is one going to ride a roller coaster? Or eat Flags' Famous Chicken Strips?

    Why is this the first I'm hearing of it?

    Although Great Adventure does break $100 for full price ticket + parking! $80 ticket + $30 parking

    Isn't this all less than Great Adventure?

    I believe you can stroll in at 11:59pm. You just can't leave and re-enter after 8pm.

    The guest auto-regulation just helps spread the load to other rides. In the end, parks still need the capacity somewhere, spread across all those other rides, to satisfy an appropriate number of guests. The capacity will be the bottleneck on moderate to crowded days. Ex. Let's say an imaginary park has: 5 rides with 1000 rph 6 rides with 600 rph 10 rides with 300 rph 20 rides with 200 rph Overall, the park has a hard max capacity of 15,600 riders per hour. That's great if there's less than 15,600 people in your park -- everyone can get on a ride with about an hour wait! (Although that's still kind of bad). If there's 31,200 people in the park, that's an average of a 2 hour wait. Guest self-regulation just helps to fully utilize the capacity of the less popular rides that will have shorter lines. It makes sure the park is reaching the full 15,600 rph, but you can't humanly surpass that with those rides already going at max capacity. Capacity is perhaps a little over-used as a complaint, but not something to ignore, especially in parks with large attendance.

    Deconstruction has definitely started.

    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    The first image is a carriage. lol https://www.parkjourney.com/uploads/2/4/0/4/24040019/9844588_orig.jpg I assume you're thinking of the fire totems that line Dream Street. They're from the Carousel to the Giant Wheel. There's also 2 at the entrance of Dead Man's Party. I don't remember them being in front of CarnEvil, but I guess they just put 2 of them elsewhere this year. They're still there. They did get a new Clown sign thing in front of CarnEvil, so maybe that's why there's no fire totem there.

    Flash Sale Extended through Sept. 9

    There was a separate link on the page to get a renewal price for existing passholders. It's like $1 less, so you didn't miss much. When you go to process, just ask them to put it on your existing card.

    Gold Plus*, assuming you got a membership.

    Yes, they can add a Season Dining Pass on easily without having to cancel like the Dining Membership add-on. Well there is a $20 security deposit on each membership, so they'd probably deactivate the membership before they lose what they would have gotten. Then if it's within the 12-month commitment, the rest of the 12 months would go to collections.

    You can add a 2019 Season Dining Plan to your membership, but it's actually more expensive for Diamond Elite. The Deluxe Dining Membership price for Diamond Elite Members is only $4.70 per month, which is only $56.40 per year. However, while you did spend more money, you've successfully delayed the headache of trying to add a Dining Membership onto your existing Membership! Doing so would actually require you to cancel your existing membership and start a brand new membership, thus restarting the 12-month commitment contract. How many people are you buying memberships for? This will affect what the best course of action since when you do eventually add a Dining Membership and restart your Membership, you'll have to get whatever the current deal is at that time. And normally the deal is that you must buy 2 or more memberships to get the lowest advertised price. So you may have to choose between overlap paying for Dining twice for a few months (since your pass would still be active), or paying a higher monthly membership fee. Have a Six Flags day.
