  1. 2017 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    WIth a new CEO, they might not even do them like they have anymore. Have to wait and see, either way i doubt Reid Anderson will be doing them, unless they make him the "face" of the Company now in his reduced role.

    The 90's Concert at the Park is now cancelled. That was about the best show they have had listed for the whole season, and they lost it. Want good act's in the Park, gotta' pay up. They would rather have reigious concert's for some "god" lol.
  3. Six Flags Additions for 2017

    At MM they are also doing "Suicide Squad : The Experience" for Fright Fest. Look's like them and DC are testing that License in the "Horror" Market. See how it does for those Character's popping up in attraction's even if it does good.

    Good Point's, for Bizarro they would need the approval. But that same logic could be applied to the "TDK" Coaster, for the 3 Park's that have them now, that would solve all the issies i'm sure the other Park's are also having with the Themeing holding up. I think if they went with it on "Nitro", a re-theme may be something that comes along with it. Something that would fit one of the established sandbox "enviroment's" that they could sync up with "Nitro"s Layout. But how many Six Flag's Park's don't have a VR Coaster yet? If it's more than a few, they may make a new sandbox "enviroment" for the remaining Park's. But if they do it on "Nitro" hopefully a Paint Job comes along with it at least.

    I just think VR to "Nitro" would take away more than it add's losing the natural setting it's in with the View's of the Lake. "Bizarro" would be my pick for our outdoor Coaster. I'm all for anything that keep's "Bizarro" in the spotlight, it's still one of our best Coaster's. And will always be the "1st Floorless", it deserve's some more attention.
  6. 2017 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    Surprised not a single mention here of the Six Flags Q2 Confrenece Call that released alot of coming detail's. Missing things already......? Like they are doing what i posted month's ago of adding Holiday Theme's to the VR for Fright and HITP. Every Park in the Chain is getting VR, and plans are in the work's NOW for the remaining Park's that don't have VR to get it added very soon. I still just hope they only add it to "Skull Mountain" and "TDK" in GAdv. I posted last year "Pointsettia Peak" could really be something if the Coaster was on the "Peak" of a Snowy Mountain, and with TDK the possibilities are endless, with new Theme's for he upcoming DC slate of Movies. But i have a strong feeling were looking at "Bizarro" and hopefully "Skull Mountain". I do still think that adding VR to any outdoor Coaster would take away from the experience, losing the view's of the Woodland's our Coaster's give. Except for "Superman", i wouldn't mind losing the view of the Parking Lot, but adding hrs to that already slow moving line would be a nightmare. And they may not do the announcement's like they have been done lately, and we may even see a change of the "trends" that have been going on. We have a new CEO now, that may do thing's differently. I really don't think Reid Anderson will be doing the Video at all anymore, either the new CEO, or they will use a spokesperson. Doubt they will keep someone with a "lisp" doing the Annoiuncement's if he's not the CEO anymore. Seemed like an "ego" move from the start. But have to wait and see on that one, I think Reid Anderson's new position keep's him in the "Spotlight", see what they end up doing.

    I know the site don't make anything, and is nothing but an expense. It is a lifelong dedication with you, and i have always respected you for that, and what you have accomplished with it. Wasn't sure how the Book Royalties go until now though. But either way, you guy's are Published Author's, that is a feat to be proud of. Long after you are gone, the Book's and Site will live on. I have that with all the Movies and TV Show's i've been in, "immortality". It is a nice feeling. And it's just really funny though that a deleted Post here posting someone's Home address got me made an Adiministrator at couple other Page's this morning, i am not alone at all with my feeling's. And with how bigger those audience's are, it's has more impact posted to them anyway.
  8. Misc GA Mumblings

    Knew that was going to happen, why i cut it to plaster it on other sites also. Har, your a good guy and your site is awesome. And i do totally understand why you do what you do, and how you do it. You have an awesome relationship with the Park, and have made sort of a second "living" out of it, being a published author, etc. That is something to be proud of, and you do have something at "stake" if you were to mess it up. But the rest of them........not even going into it anymore. I'm just done.

    Uh, cause' this Summer i went to SF Great America for a day when out there visiting Friend's. I didn't say it in this post because it was just another Six Flags Park, and i really don't feel the need to explain myself to anyone. I'm the kind of person that is usually happy when people don't like me, i don't have to pretend to like them then. I have my "core" gang, all i need, don't have room or time for any more people. But i shut down Updates now anyway, tired of the Park suck-up, "man-children" that most of still live with "Mommy" coming in with stupid comment's all day, inboxes from People asking for thing's like old Park Maps, and just the general "Park People" stupidity. I pretty much hate the audience. And it's funny though, Neil pretty much has the same opinion i do anymore over at Roundtable, does Post's saying the same stuff i do, (he called out HH today in profanity laced post for closing the Gates on what is now 4 days in a row for hitting capacity, great job with Carribean Cove HH!!!) but he made his page Private so he don't let in all the moron's. So now when i get good info like i always do, (and say what you want, but i am right with ALOT of stuff most of the time) i'll just only give it to Private Group's anymore, and if i want it out there, i'll give it to Lance at Screamscape. And me and him recently shot e-mail's back and forth a few times talking about the stuff he gets like this from Park Fanboys (mostly from Cedar Point "kiss-asses" on his end) and an e-mail he got from a Park saying "they were dissapointed" that he spoiled something. His view is the same as mine really "oh, well, deal with it" but he had the smart's to turn it into a pretty decent living "spoiling" Park's plans. I hope i get some good news one day way early about a "Record Breaker", then post it month's early so another Park see's it, and then build's the same thing, just a little bigger, or steeper, or whatever.so the initial record mean's nothing. That's a "dream" scenario to me.

    The fact that i haven't been to another Park other than GAdv for about 30yrs, and finally went to one (Hershey) and saw how it is at other places. Now it makes me want to go to check out a Cedar Fair Park sometime. And i loved HITP, brought back that old feeling of how the Park used to be.
  11. Misc GA Mumblings

    It all just comes down to one's personal preferance really. I mean there is nothing wrong at all for anyone buying Passes, it is the best deal going for Entertainment Value for the Money spent. I just think now they are taking it little too far, and losing site of what the Park once was. It really was a Magical Place one time, now it's just a big advertisement for the Sponsorship Dollars coming in. I do think HITP brought alot of that "Magical Place" vibe back last year. And i did plan on getting Passes right after the regular Season ends, when 2017 go on sale. That way get FF, and HITP, and all of next Season. But now that it seem's a "JL" is coming, i'm not. My Kids don't want anything to do with a "JL", they like Coaster's. They are 15, and 11, and say that a "Justice League" is for little kids. That is the opinion of what a "JL" is to all my Kids friend's that are the same age. Usually they always hang at my place with them all, so i have heard them all say that when i told them that's what it seem's is coming next year. When you have kids that grew up on Ka, Nitro, Toro, Bizarro, and Green Lantern, adding a gimmick Coaster like "The Joker" or a Dark Ride ain't cutting it to them. So now they love Skyrush, and Fareinheight as their faves.

    Oh, i know. It's nothing but straight up geography. When your right in the middle of two major City's, that's what you will always get unless you "price them out". I personally remember the days when a Day Ticket was $13.00, and a Pass was only $39.99. But the World was different back then also, what a scumbag was back then, is nothing compared to what a scumbag is today. That's why all other the other Chain's have higher prices, but they also don't have Advertisement's plastered on everything. That's how Six Flag's makes up the difference of the low admission's, but all that does is totally destroy what a Theme Park is suppesed to be, an "escape from the real World". How you can escape anything when the Park is nothing but a huge Billboard? If i wanted to see ad's all day, i can sit home and watch Network TV. I would gladly pay an extra $20-$30 on a Pass, if they removed all the ad "wrap"s", and Banner's on the Fort. If your in "Frontier Adventures" seeing an advertisement is the last thing we should be looking at in an Old West Frontier Town. But they would rather go this route, because most of the Guest's you get with the low admission's are not that bright, and they easily get suckered into the "Money Trap" the Park is if your not properly prepared. I've never rented a Locker in my life, and never bought a Flashpass but once when they were brand new just to try it.
  13. A Video of the old "Laser Show" at Showcase Theater would be awesome. The tech for the Laser's was still in it's infancy, but for the time it was pretty "cutting edge". It had a really good soundtrack featuring some of the old "Park" Songs that are still used today. The end sequence for the Laser Show was the "Trench Run" from Star Wars a New Hope, and if i remember correctly that sequence was set to the song "Tom Sawyer" from Rush. It basically looked like the original "sit down" Star Wars Arcade Game with the Green Laser's. And i remember that an earlier sequence in the Laser Show was set to "Come Sail Away" from Styx. That song is still used by the Park alot. Last season after the initial announcement's for the final Show's at The "Great Lake Grandstand", it was the first Song played while Guest's filled the Seat's. I know this would be a hard one to find as Camera's were pretty damm big back then. I think the only thing you guy's have here dealing with the Laser Show is a shot of the Sign. And as 29yrs said a "Supersidewinder" vid would be awesome, i'd love to see all those Gear's move again.

    I live 25min away from GAdv, and the ride in is even all really nice back Country Road's (except North Hanover, those Cops don't have anything better to do than pull Park Guest's over for any excuse they can come up with on 537) Dorney is just "Dorney", the ugly step-child of Cedar Fair. I have taken the Hershey run twice this year already, way better Park operation's, better Guest demograph that keep's the Park cleaner, Guest's don't steal anything they can get their Hand's on, and they add original Ride's. And i never saw "full-auto's" standing at the Front Gate either. It's worth the trip, and worth the Money for those reason's alone. I want Great Adv to raise Pass Prices so they "price out" all the scumbags that make up the majority of the Guest's nowadays, then re-invest that Price increase into the Park.
