  1. Absolutely! Everyone is welcome to upload and share any photos they take of the park. It would be appreciated.
  2. How about doing a trip report with some photos of the new ride site?
  3. I have the lady on the wheel which I will need to track down. The graveyard (which was the last room before exiting) was always so dark it was hard to see the props in that area. One of the best props was a board of nails with body parts stuck to it. One of them was a forehead wearing a cracked Rolling Thunder sun visor hat. It made you think "he was one of us"!

  5. Main Street Market sells both of them. They are on the far left wall if you come in the doors by the entrance gates. Ka is also sold at Tiger Leap Market near the exit to the ride.
  6. Just like the wooden fence outside of Safari Kids (not to mention almost everywhere else). I was always taught you shouldn’t cry wolf.
  7. So as we know, Great Adventure likes to keep things fresh each season with Holiday in the Park by offering new and different rides, attractions, and areas. It looks like the 2019 season will be no different with the probable opening of Bugs Bunny National Park especially given the closure of Looney Tunes Seaport (a portion of Whimsical Wonderland). New strings of light sockets have been installed on all the buildings in Bugs Bunny National Park: In addition, small new footers have been installed along the lakefront walkway behind the Four Tents and Teacups ride. My guess is these will be used as bases for some type of decorations or lighting canopy. Neither of these things have been confirmed by the park yet, but I have a feeling Santa has a few more goodies in his sack to share with us during Holiday in the Park 2019!
  8. I had flashbacks yesterday of my very early GA trips. I was determined to get a trip report together so I spent a few hours touring the park in the pouring rain. Even though I had a jacket, I was soaked when I drove home. Once in my house I jumped in the shower and for some reason the first thing that popped in my head was when I was younger (much younger) and I would spend all day going on the rides including the water rides. It always was such a good feeling to get home and take a shower to wash off all that flume, rapids, and water ride feeling.
  9. I don't get that either unless we are just use to better than Six Flags' average operations at GA.
  10. No specifics but we will most likely see the return of some of the Looney Tunes Seaport rides. Not sure about Taz Tornado but maybe they want to keep the two devil-themed rides side by side!
