    Holiday in the Park 2018 - New Info & Guide Map

    No HITP today - Park is closed due to rainy weather. All this bad weather on operating days has to be hurting attendance.
  2. FIRST-EVER ROLLER COASTER AT SEA TO OFFER ONE-OF-A-KIND THRILLS ABOARD CARNIVAL CRUISE LINE’S NEWEST AND MOST INNOVATIVE SHIP, MARDI GRAS, IN 2020 BOLT: Ultimate Sea Coaster, Will Feature an Exhilarating, Adrenaline-Rush At Speeds Up to 40 Miles Per Hour MIAMI (December 13, 2018) – Get ready to ride! In another cruise industry first, Carnival Cruise Line’s Mardi Gras™ will feature the first-ever roller coaster at sea when it debuts in 2020, providing an unforgettable and unique open-air thrill ride on the line’s newest and most innovative ship. Built by Munich-based Maurer Rides, BOLT™: Ultimate Sea Coaster™ is a heart-pounding rush of adrenaline offering nearly 800 feet of exhilarating twists, turns and drops with riders reaching speeds of nearly 40 miles per hour. Taking cruise industry innovation to new heights, BOLT is an all-electric roller coaster that allows two riders in a motorcycle-like vehicle to race along a track 187 feet above sea level, enabling guests to experience the sea in an exciting new way with breathtaking 360-degree views. BOLT begins with an action-packed launch where riders can achieve race car-like levels of acceleration and culminates with a high-powered hair-pin turn around Carnival’s iconic funnel. Riders’ speeds are posted after the race, and just like land-based roller coasters, guests have their photo taken during the ride for a memorable keepsake. And since guests choose their own speed, each ride is unique. Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said that BOLT is the cornerstone of innovations and features being designed for Mardi Gras, which will be the ultimate playground at sea for fun seekers of all ages. “Mardi Gras will be our most innovative ship ever with some truly special features and attractions, highlighted by BOLT, the first roller coaster at sea,” said Duffy. “BOLT will continue the tradition of Carnival providing exciting new ways for our guests to ‘Choose Fun.’ We are so thrilled to introduce this one-of-a-kind, game-changing, exhilarating attraction – our guests are going to love it!” Mardi Gras will be based in Port Canaveral, Fla., which will feature a new state-of-the-art terminal. Itinerary information will be revealed early next month with additional details about Mardi Gras’ groundbreaking features announced throughout the year. A second XL-class ship will start construction in 2020 and be delivered in 2022 to mark the 50th anniversary of Carnival Cruise Line’s founding.

    Great Adventure Clowns

    Hello Steve!
  4. As someone who normally carries around a camera at the park I hate having to also carry a sports bottle. This should be an easy wish to grant.
  5. I like them, especially when they use to be changed to red, white, and blue for July 4th and orange and back for Halloween.

    What songs would be in your ideal pre-show?

    Here is another song they used "back in the day" at the Aqua Stadium:
  7. Where? What did you change? Furthermore, "fine I fixed it" should be "Fine, I fixed it." I am not trying to be a jerk but I am sure everyone would appreciate it if your posts were submitted properly to make reading them easier.
  8. PLEASE post in full sentences with proper grammar, capitalization, and punctuation. Posts without these will be deleted.

    Morey's Piers Adding Runaway Tram Family Coaster

    I never was able to ride the Doo Wooper because of the lack of legroom. It made the Runaway Train seem spacious.

    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    Being “PC”. If you have problems with Rudolph and the song Baby It’s Cold Outside you need a life.

    Holiday in the Park 2018 - New Info & Guide Map

    I believe they would take any attendance they can get even to the point of overcrowding. It just makes better business sense.
  13. All the original props in Hurricane Harbor were themed as contraptions designed by the island’s fictional inhabitants the Bada Bings. I wonder if the risqué bar in the HBO series the Sopranos also named the Bada Bing had a role in downplaying the park’s further use of these never seen characters (especially in NJ)? In any case, reintroducing these types of props and stepping up the landscaping parkwide would be a huge plus.

    Holiday in the Park 2018 - New Info & Guide Map

    Unless I have missed them, I think the park should have both radio and TV commercials to promote Holiday in the Park. So many people are surprised to learn the park is open this time of year when I tell them.
