    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    They literally said that the coaster is 205 feet tall in the broadcast as well. It's very misleading when they called Steel Vengeance the tallest and fastest when Kingda Ka is literally an hour away (you can sometimes see Philly on the top of Zumanjaro and Nitro).

    I have yet to see a security guard stand at the entrance for The Joker telling riders the no phones/keys rule that is done at El Toro.

    Do they still allow phones to be brought into the line for Nitro?

    It's gonna be partly cloudy with a high of 56. Good thing about today is that overall operations have improved drastically since my last visit; basically "back to normal". There were more employees, food lines were shorter, more places were open, and rides weren't breaking down too much. Park surprisingly wasn't too crowded despite the nice weather.

    Honestly, operations have gone downhill this year compared to last year. Staffing seems to be one of the main issues but it is always a problem with the spring season and after Fright Fest.

    Hearing that the park is kinda crowded today most likely because of good weather and it's the day before Easter. Planning on going tomorrow since it's the only day I have off from track so hopefully it's not crowded.

    Will it still be very crowded on the 2nd and 4th?

    Where I'm at, it's supposed to reach 52. It's supposed to be in the 50s in my area all next week. This winter was kinda strange with how we started with two weeks in sub-freezing temperatures to warm weather now.

    Disney Parks additions

    I wonder if Disney could install a communication based train control system (CBTC) on their monorails similar to what the MTA has done to the 7 line where an operator isn't required and trains run using radio circuits.

    Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    I never seen anyone on Nitro say no re rides in the past season or two. Is that ride op a supervisor? As Matt said above, if someone says no re rides, then they probably weren't taught about allowing re rides by their supervisor and decided to make their own call.

    Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    I never walk on the air gate side of the platform because the gates block the rest of the platform. One time a newer employee on El Toro did question me about re rides and the supervisor told me to stay on since my row had a single rider. Even though Great Adventure has no policy regarding re rides, Six Flags New England does have policies preventing re rides and operators there will ask you to get back in line if caught.

    What song reminds you of GAdv.

    Almost any pop or rock song that come out in the 90s and 2000s because most of the music the park plays is popular music from the past 15-20 years and it is usually focused on ones from the 2000s. I don't have a specific song that reminds me of the park as a whole but certain songs remind me of certain rides and areas usually because they get overplayed in those areas. A Thousand Miles is played like every time I pass the Main Street Fountain when they don't have the dance party making it basically the first song I expect to hear in that area. Green Lantern's queue TVs seem to play this song and its accompanying music video called The Great Escape whenever I'm in line which reminds me more of the actual park in upstate New York but still reminds me of getting past the games area.

    Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    I was once denied a re ride on Skull Mountain but it was because I was on the last train of the night. A lot of the times re rides aren't available at Great Adventure is usually because the ride ops wait for the exit platform to be cleared before opening the air gates.
