  2. Disney Parks additions

    Back in 2007 I went to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom and was surprised to see that they had a "Disney Store".
  3. Six Flags World’s Largest Snowball Fight - Details Added

    No records being set today. A snowball fight cancelled because of snow! That’s pretty funny!
  4. Six Flags World’s Largest Snowball Fight - Details Added

    Even more “ammunition” now for the snowball fight!
  5. Day 6 - Additional Themed Portal Signs in Park

    The park has a wonderful signs department that makes some incredible signs. When given the proper allocation of funds for new or additional signs, these creative folks can turn out some truly artistic masterpieces.

    This event could be very realistic. Look at Saturday's forecast!

  8. Swiss Bob

    There was an entry for the Swiss Bob (Sarajevo Bobsled) in 1983 too. This one said Bayernkurve.
  9. Swiss Bob

    After doing some investigative reporting, I am convinced that Great Adventure was home to two different Swiss Bob/Bayernkurve rides (similar to how we had two Enterprise rides). The first was the Olympic themed version that operated from 1974 through the end of the 1979 season. According to new information found on Intamin's website, they provided Great Adventure with another model under a contract dated 1980. This would have been the most recent version that operated through the end of the 1991 season before being removed for the Batman Stunt Spectacular Arena in 1992. Looking at the pictures of the Swiss Bob, you can see that there were variations in the two rides including the number of cars in the train, the handrail configurations on the cars, not to mention obvious aspects like the snow-themed backdrop and surrounding fencing. Anyone have any thoughts or input?
