    I too would agree that the burritos are among the best food choices in the park; however, I stopped purchasing them when I saw the calorie count. Yikes! I would be more than agitated if I were overcharged--especially for the slop they serve at the park. I stood in line for 45 minuted on Thursday at Primo's for a slice of New Jersey's worse pizza and dried out fries. The company really needs a new a Director of Food and Beverage. I won't even get into the customer service aspect of Six Flags.

    That's too bad about the land. It's tough to install a mega-coaster when all you have to work with is the existing footprint. I'm guessing that state regulators would would put Six Flags through the ringer if they attempted to use forest land.

    Does anyone know how much undeveloped land Great Adventure has beyond the existing parks footprint, and where is is located.

    Jim Reid Anderson mentioned in the last conference call that attendance is down due to the rainy spring weather that seemed to hit the parks on weekends.

    The Skyway is considered a ropeway and falls under the guidelines of ski lifts. Accordingly, they must be inspected by the state annually.

    NIce find (spec sheet), ReptileGuy. BTW, I see from the spec sheet that ABC Rides refers to the ride as the Tourbillon. A Tourbillon is actually a type of watch movement, which I found interesting.

    I would love to see some shows added to the mix of rides and attractions. I go to WDW twice a year or so with friends or family, but have yet to convince any of them to visit Six Flags for a multitude of reasons, including a lack of shows. Not everyone is a high speed thrill ride fan. I feel that Six Flags is completely overlooking that market segment.

    I completely agree. My concern is that SIX's debt load continues to increase, while their stock price is down YTD. I realize that the company works off of volume, but they can't keep charging so little for admission. I spent $368 today for my season pass, dining pass, and flash pass season pass. This is around what a three day ticket costs for the Magic Kingdom. Their price points are just out of whack. Do we really think that someone who is paying $66 for a season pass is spending incremental money in the parks? I truly believe that Jim Reid Anderson originally stepped down as president because he could not squeeze much more revenue out of the parks. Now that he's back in the role of president, let's see what happens. You have to sell quite a few $66 season passes to pay for a $30M mega-coaster.
  9. Six Flags Stock

    The share price is at $55.58 today. It missed quarterly earnings estimates last week, but that was blamed on the weather. I've been pondering this stock, but very few analysts give it a "buy" rating.
  10. Attraction Access Pass

    That would make sense, Sky Ride. The new Access Pass policy that was implemented this summer stated that it did not necessarily require the specific disability on the letter from the Doc, so I wasn't sure how the passes would be differentiated without additional information. There obviously must be some sort of process, otherwise everyone with a disability would request a front-of-the line pass.

    I completely agree that there should be no first warning, and that individuals should be immediately ejected from the park. There are signs everywhere about not having objects out on rides. Can you imagine if a phone fell from an individual riding on the swings? It could result in a serious injury or death to any passerby.
  12. Attraction Access Pass

    Why do some have acces to rides without a wait, while others have a return time? IMO, they should all have return times equal to the current attraction wait time. What differentiates the two varieties of passes? SatansHockey, none of the individuals in front of me had the green re-ride passes, as I specifically watched each individual/group hand the attendant their blue Access pass.

    I was on Nitro this morning when the ride came to an abrupt halt on the climb hill. We then waiting until an employee walked up to chastise and threaten a gentleman for taking out his cel phone. The ride operator told (actually yelled) at the individual to hand over his phone. He then told him that he would be met by security at the exit and be fined $1,000. The guest obviously got upset, shouted some obscenities, but ultimately handed over his phone. While I understand the policy and concern for safety, the employee did nothing more than exacerbate an already tense situation by threatening the guest with the fine, which might better have been left to security to handle. I'm not sure why the employees aren't trained a little better than they are. Regardless, security did meet and talk to the gentlemen at the exit, as well as wrote down some information. I was just curious if the fine was just an idle threat, or if the park will actually follow through. I assume that the guest broke a state law, as Six Flags can't issue fines themselves. This would need to be turned over to law enforcement. I've heard other employees threaten guest with sell phones out--especially on the swings, but usually the threat includes being thrown out of the park. This is the first I've heard of the $1,000 fine, which is likely the maximum penalty.
  14. Attraction Access Pass

    I nearly blew a gasket today! While I am very compassionate and understanding when it comes to disabilities, I simply can't comprehend how the Access pass works at SFGA. I had a flash pass platinum today, and waited behind 38 people at the Rage of the Gargoyles Flash Pass entrance who were either disabled or were with individuals with disabilities. There was a group of six twelve year old girls directly in front of me that had one blue Access paper. Is there no limit as to how many people can accompany an individual with a disability? Also, why are some individuals given return times while others can simply walk up to any ride without having to wait at all? I wanted to speak to someone in the ride information center, but the line to get into that building was excessive to say the least.

    I hope your mom reported the slip and fall to security before she left the park. An incident report should have been filed.
