    New for 2018-- Cyborg Spin - Grand Opening June 13th

    Some were already bent and damaged, I believe just from the installation.

    My guess for the first thing to be vandalized are the thin decorative pieces meant to look like a circuit board. They can easily be bent and the fence right in front of the ride will be a pretty high-traffic area for that.

    Where do you all hear all this stuff?

    Not sure if it's solid/filled or empty, but the top half of that inner ring is subtly larger than the bottom half with the seats. As in, if you were to detach the seats, the top would be bulkier and heavier. That's gotta be just a tiny amount of difference, though. I'm sure with the seats, they'd want the seat side to be heavier so that the gondola would rest right-side-up in a failure.

    2019 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    The same survey is for all of Six Flags, not just Great Adventure, and it covers a wide variety of topics and audiences. You can't conclude much by focusing on that one aspect.

    When did they mention that space?

    Six Flags has done this for years, sharing employees between parks. NJ employees are even sometimes sent the other way to SFNE and SFA depending on what the demand and supply for employees is for the week/weekend. It just gets worse each year. I believe they had to fly in workers from their Texas parks this year.

    Where are you going in 2018?

    Just got back from a fun 10-day, 9-park, 5-state Midwest road-trip. We added 36 new coasters, bringing my coaster count to 265. We also rode three new RMCs. Parks Kennywood - First time, 5 credits Kings Island - Mystic Timbers Kentucky Kingdom - First time, 5 credits (Got on T3 safely :P) Holiday World - First time, 5 credits Six Flags Great America - First time, 13 credits Cedar Point - STEEL VENGEANCE (for CoasterMANIA) Waldameer - First time, 4 credits Conneaut Lake Park - First time, 2 credits Knoebels - Unplanned but it was along the way back, making decent time, so we had to stop. STEEL VENGEANCE has dethroned Fury 325 to become my new #1 COASTER.

    They are replacing the canopy, they're installing it right now.

    Special Memorial Day Dining Offer

    You should probably still contact the GR (live chat on the website is pretty good), but my guess is that it may happen automatically for either. Deluxe-to-Premium has been the deal they've been selling for probably over a year now, so that's been on the site like that for a while. As far as I can remember, this weekend is the first time they've ever offered a Basic-to-Deluxe deal, so they probably didn't update the text on the site.

    Fountain Stage

    This stage was one of the 3 or 4 main memories I have from visiting the park as a kid. (I was in first grade then) When I got older and started becoming an enthusiast, this memory really confused me. I swore I remembered seeing this giant stage, but knew the fountain was always there, so I started to doubt I was remembering it correctly.

    Some more info about the t-rex concept in the last half of this video. Also interesting, a point I never thought of with the single-person-per-row trains is that they have a much smaller turning radius, which is why Raptor achieves tight turns in a small footprint. When was that said?

    The fence is just blocking off where the Bloodshed terror trail is. However, Splashwater Oasis is also surrounded by a fence

    Yep, that should be the solar farm!

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

    Did you get some sort of e-coupon or do you have to go pick up the Six Flags Bucks at the park?

    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    And the saddest one is CBS Philly (and any other Philly media that did the same). The tallest coaster is in their region!! This has to be CF's goal, so this grinds my gears on both ends. They go after these qualifier-records that they clearly know the media will conveniently forget or miss. First Fury was the world's tallest and fastest, then it was Valravn, and now it's Steel Vengeance. (Yes, Six Flags does the same, but not as well)

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

    I did not get a refund for tax or processing fee on the season pass. I ended up double-paying processing fees. I was thinking the lack of tax refund wouldn't matter as long as Six Flags Bucks get applied BEFORE tax, but apparently they don't, so I'm double-taxed on every purchase I make with Six Flags Bucks. Good luck to you.

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

    When I upgraded at the park (Member Services), they told me we would go to GR to pick them up immediately after upgrading. We got to GR and they told us it takes 72 hours to go to corporate and come back. 😒 While looking at my account, GR realized Member Services didn't process my upgrade correctly, so they informed me I was "no longer entitled to the Six Flags bucks refund." Wtf? 🤬 In the end, they did a manual refund and I got my bugs bucks the same day.
