  1. They probably made Magic Mountain's one better than the other ones so they can compete with Universal Studios Hollywood and Disneyland which both have several elaborately themed dark rides.
  2. Chicago sports fans aren't the worst behaved fans but they can get kind of rowdy at times; not as bad as Philadelphia fans who would climb poles and buildings and other crazy stuff after the Eagles winning Super Bowl 52. Their teams are also popular with bandwagons because of Michael Jordan's two three-peats with the Bulls and the other teams having success.
  3. Clementon Park has one too but it is still operating.
  4. Even though Nitro was reported to have a 90 minute wait, I only waited 20 and managed to ride it again without getting back in line. I actually almost decided to cancel my membership because I had a lot of frustrating trips compared to last season where the park did a lousy job on operations and organization (exception being rides) and going on mostly unnecessarily busy days didn't help. Which is also why I visited less times compared to previous years along with having a Cedar Fair pass and visiting some of their parks. Next time I enter the park and see the lot busier than normal, I'm probably not going to enter the park just not to deal with long lines and poor operations. Great Adventure really needs to get their act together.
  5. Currently at 114. Mystic Timbers is my 100th with Steel Vengeance being my new favorite. El Toro dropped from number 1 to number 3 and every coaster in my top 10 are either Intamins or RMCs except for Mystic Timbers.
  6. Road salt should only be used before it snows. NJDOT also recently repaved 295 from Route 42 in Bellmawr to Route 38 in Mt Laurel with smooth asphalt and the salt can wear out the pavement faster.
  7. High is 36 on Friday. Better than sub freezing but still cold. Crowds will be low too because it's Black Friday so most traffic near the park is heading towards the Jackson Outlets
  8. I run cross country and I never really knew about the Wild Safari XC Invitational until one of my teammates told me about it. He had a few friends that ran the race. Winner of the race is from Pitman and ran the course in under 16 minutes. My school ran a different cross country race that day.
  9. It's been like that since August. The prices are probably this high so they don't lose money because of the amount of season pass and membership holders that get free parking.
  10. NJ Transit closed the entire Atlantic City Line for the rest of the year yesterday so they can add positive train control on all the trains which is mandatory by the end of the year. Some believe they may close the line permanently which will badly affect AC tourism and casino workers that rely on taking the train to work. They also removed Raritan Valley line trains to NYC because of positive train control as well forcing commuters to transfer to another train in Newark or Secaucus or take a ferry in Hoboken.
  11. They would also have to build a railroad line to connect to the park that would connect to the Northeast Corridor or to the North Jersey Coast Line via the old Blue Comet line in Lakehurst which is actually being rebuilt to serve a sand pit in Chatsworth. Where the NJ Coast Line ends in Point Pleasant Beach is a bit too far and out of the way to extend the line to Jackson and even Toms River and would require demolishing many homes and businesses. There's also a Conrail line along Route 537 that ends in Mt. Holly that could be extended up to Great Adventure but the already existing portion would need to be rebuilt to accommodate high speed trains. I don't expect NJ Transit to do something like this because it could struggle to attract passengers similarly to their Atlantic City services and wouldn't be able to operate year round.
  12. We're probably going to get a coaster this year, most likely a Raptor. Some rumors about the Chance Morgan track is that it's going to Rye Playland but it's not confirmed. Also I agree that Six Flags should play the National Anthem at opening. Only went to the park at opening once which was for a class trip and they do nothing during opening. All they do is open the gates and let you go to where you want.
  13. SFNE has a restaurant called JB's Smokehouse that is themed to all 4 Boston teams even though Connecticut tends to support New York teams especially west of Hartford and New Haven. Small, local parks seem ideal in having a sports themed area except if they are in a market where they have two professional teams for the same sport such as NYC and LA. A sponsorship with a team can be acceptable too. I could see as park like Worlds of Fun have a Chiefs or Royals themed area as they are a big deal there but not really Six Flag America as they are near the border separating Ravens, O's and Redskins, Nats territory unless they do something related to the Capitals or Wizards.
  14. Most rides I had on Toro in a single day was 24. I could do more but I also marathon Nitro as well and crowds can affect how many rides I get too. This year I only have around 25 Nitro Rides and 15 El Toro rides in only three trips because I kinda don't like how the park and company is run this year and I have Cedar Fair passes this year as well. I'd rather visit Cedar Fair parks more than Six Flags parks. Also, I watch Millenniumforce on YouTube as well. His footage for roller coasters and trains are great and I am a bit of a train enthusiast as well.
