  1. Some of the very large individual fireworks can actually cost a few hundred dollars apiece. My guess is that there was a fairly significant cancelation penalty by the vendor.

    Just out of curiosity, what’s your aversion to unions? They created the middle class in this country.

    My challenge is that I'm a vegetarian, so common staples like burgers are not an option. Lately I've been getting a veggie burger, salad, or wrap at Go Fresh. I'll also opt for the pizza on ocassion, but again, not the best pizza out there. I'm not sure what makes their veggie burritos so darn high in calories. I'll walk some of it off, but good grief. We're talking nearly a days worth of calories in a single burrito. in terms of profitability, their stock was down about 14% YTD, but has rebounded a bit. It's only now down about 3%. Their debt load continues to grow, which is bothersome. We shall see if Jim Reid Anderson can turn things around now that he's back at the help. I was never a big fan of him, and believe he originally stepped down becuase he couldn't figure out how to squeeze much more revenue out of the currently flawed business model, but we shall see.

    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.
  10. 2019 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    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.
  11. New for 2018-- Cyborg Spin

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Misc GA Mumblings

    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.
  15. 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.
