    Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    I think we completely skipped fall weather and went straight from end-of-summer weather to early-winter weather. Very sad, it's my favorite weather.

    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.
