  1. Agreed but they've done a nice job with the more recent overhauls, specifically SFMM's DC Universe and the handful of DC Super Friends kids areas.
  2. I knew about the indoor parks, but had no idea Six Flags ever owned wax museums! Let alone anything in Florida.
  3. I feel like we were on the path to a new kids area by JDC, but the COVID-initiated cash crunch stopped that. Whatever 2022 it, it's going to be cheap. Probably a themed flat ride we get through ride rotation, or something.
  4. Or on empty ones! Not since the Shapiro days, at least.
  5. Great report! Shame to hear there's no rule enforcement. The style of the new entrance plaza reminds me of the new SF Universe store at GAdv, as well as the bland new(ish) entrance to CP. I don't like this trend in theme park design -- things should look themed, not like a mall!
  6. Strongly agree. It was fun and distinctive, and now it's neither. So too Hurricane Harbor's themed environment -- what an eyesore all of the cheap, screenprinted signs are.
  7. I'd love to see that be the case but I think it's very wishful thinking. The virus will continue to spread to less-dense areas even if it begins to slow down in our big cities, which will draw out the public health crisis. Many events in June are already cancelled around the country, so I'd place late June as the absolute earliest GAdv opens.
  8. And the virus will be everywhere soon after. Just hit NY first because more international travel lands here.
  9. Sorry to bring something back from so long ago, but bored for obvious reason over here.... This is a great point that I hadn't considered. The SF parks really did each have unique and often beautiful architecture, and Time Warner's acquisition began the step towards whitewashing and standardizing much of that.
  10. 5 Costumed ride attendants (Houdini especially) 4 Severe enforcement of code of conduct 3 Live entertainment 2 Glow in the Park parade (or equivalent) 1 Cohesive theming within each section – signage, music, etc.
  11. One of the things that really bums me out about GAdv in recent years is how much the signage quality has deteriorated. It appears that the once-expert signage department has probably been reduced to a guy with Microsoft Paint and a screen printer.
  12. Have never heard of this, but just put it on and it's like the *quintessential* Six Flags song. Captures that throwaway teenage pop-punk vibe perfectly. It's similar to the one song that really reminds me of all SF parks, which is "Grow Up" by Simple Plan. I remember it was used in a SF ad in 2002 or so (video here) and turned me onto that band before they blew up.
