    You should rename it to "What would GA have gotten for 2019?" while you still can.
  2. Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    Actually it's only 2 people, the season pass portal is wrong. (I guess because most SF parks require 4 or more but Great Adventure is doing only 2 or more) When you go through the process, it will take you back to the main Great Adventure website with a promo code applied, so Great Adventure's store rules of 2 or more apply.
  3. Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    I think it's a mix of both. I'm also in a sort of related field (software engineer) and based on everything I've experienced, seen, and heard, it seems like they genuinely have a ton of technical limitations with the third party vendor they use for their membership billing system. But it doesn't seem like they're in any rush to fix that. They just keep coming up with multi-step "work-arounds".
  4. Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    Good luck. Nothing is quite that simple with their membership system due to "technical limitations". You'll probably have to cancel in order to upgrade. (signing a new 12 month agreement)
  5. Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    To answer your question, you are not getting any extra benefits as a Gold Combo Membership compared to Gold Plus. Gold Plus is everything that you have now plus more. So yes, you are paying more for less and should "upgrade" to at least Gold Plus.
  6. Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    That raising and resetting is what they're referring to with the "sales", so they're saying they won't do that. They will be the same price throughout the year, but they are reserving the right to increase it, just like how Netflix increases their subscription price every few years.

    I do have to fold them in half, but I think that's just the trade-off for how I'm storing them.
  8. Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    I upgraded from Season Pass to Membership at the park. Let me know if anyone has questions about memberships or the upgrade process and I'll try to answer them. From the Membership FAQ:

    Thanks! These were all taken with either a Panasonic Lumix GH5 or my phone (Google Pixel 2 XL, sometimes with a Moment Wide Angel lens) I also sometimes use a Canon eos m, but didn't bring it this time.

    All Cedar Fair and Sea World parks have used these for a while. They're more annoying to use, hold, and transport home safely, but I do prefer them for saving in a binder. I found fold-out plastic binder protector sheets that they fit perfectly into, which display them nicely.

    We visited the park Saturday 3/31, the second day of the season. It was a very stressful visit due to hours spent on Pass/Member issues and other circumstances stemming from lack of employees, training, and overall preparedness, but I look forward to those hopefully getting better over the season and for the future. I photographed as much as I remembered to check out, from Cyborg construction, restaurant changes, log flume work, and so on. Full album here: https://imgur.com/a/phtDx (LOTS more photos than I posted below) Some highlights: Cyborg Cyborg Wide View Cyborg Aerial View Go Fresh by Nitro will soon be Primo's Pasta (Menu close-up in full album) Liberty Pub removed for construction of the "Ale House" Right across from that is construction on (what I assume to be) Liberty Snacks & Dippin' Dots Log Flume Drop Refurbishment (Also, Best of the West was closed) A very vibrant Sugar Shack has replaced the Cold Stone attached to G.A. Cafe The preferred lot now has these pole barriers to protect pedestrians along the fence. They are also along Superman's fence. The ever-changing building right outside the main gate is now Membership Services The new Season Pass Headquarters, next to Skyscreamer, where you should NOT go for Membership questions. (read the sign) The best sunset photo I've ever taken Swashbuckler is not quite there. Assuming it's still in maintenance.

    I suppose... I almost died on Soarin' Eagle where at least on Thunderbolt I only had my legs almost amputated.

    According to the park newsletter from 3/7: And Sugar Shack accepts the dining plan according to: https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure/food-and-dining/ice-cream-sweets
  14. Vekoma Rides acquired by Sansei Technologies

    That's interesting. For those who don't know, Sansei owns most of S&S (which is now officially named "S&S - Sansei Technologies")
