    Photo Trip Report: October 8th, 2018 - Fright Fest on Columbus Day

    "If you like El Diablo Ride it. Soon." For lack of a better term, I'm out of the loop on this one. The rumors about it leaving the park are true?

    I don’t think a kids area refurbishment/expansion is out of the question for next year. Six Flags Mexico was in dire need of one and it’s good to see they’re getting that. While I don’t think something like that should be as high a priority for Great Adventure, I think it would be a welcome addition to tie up some of the rundown feeling that the back of Seaport tends to give.

    Batman: The Ride

    A few weeks ago in my last couple of visits to the park, I noticed that they play more music in the station (the '89 Batman theme and Prince's soundtrack) and brought back the gunshot and car crash noises in the queue before entering the storm drain. Have these always been there and I've been oblivious, or have they been gone and just recently reinstated?

    Future of Bizarro

    I would hope that Bizarro doesn’t get removed anytime soon. Of all of our coasters, I’d say it’s definitely one of the better themed. Yeah the paint job could use a touch up and sometimes the effects are inconsistent, but that doesn’t take away from how fun the overall ride experience is. Definitely a top 5 coaster for me at GA.

    While I'm fully behind a new addition taking the place of the old Right Stuff building, I would assume that it's next to impossible. In the years since they've stopped using it for 3D shows, the back half of the building was renovated into an electrical workshop for the maintenance department. This included removing the seats and leveling the platforms that they sat on. I predict that Lakefront (former Lethal Weapon Stunt Show area/vicinity), Metropolis (former Musik Express+Spin Meister/Autobahn+Waffle Cone areas), Golden Kingdom (former Ballin's JungleLand area), and the former RT footprint will be the target areas for any future expansion in the next 3-5 years.

    What song reminds you of GAdv.

    Sort of related to the topic of music.... this past summer I’ve been trying to compile different park-related music playlists. A work in progress definitely (and harder to complete as music is rotated for FF and HITP), I’ve been focused on section-themed music. Here’s a link for anyone interested to my “Metropolis” playlist. Hopefully I’ll have a window to add new songs to this particular playlist if they don’t play any FF music in the area similar to how they do in the main park area near the fountain, Adventure Alley and Lakefront. Enjoy! https://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/metropolis/pl.u-yZyVW5VC9xYxAX

    I would love to see one more addition this coming year in Metropolis to round out the area, hopefully a nice flat ride like a pendulum or zamperala endeavor. Then maybe in the years after scatter the additions to other areas of the park, maybe in the Golden Kingdom and Lakefront (around the former Lake Grandstand area). I think those two areas after Metropolis are most in need for some TLC.
  9. My writing about it comes a little bit later, but I decided to visit Great Adventure this last Saturday after the forecasted thunder storms never came to fruition. My friend and I got to the park around 7 p.m. and were happy to see no line for security. Our luck continued as the park was unusually empty. Every ride was a walk on or at most a station wait, I honestly couldn’t believe that this is what a summer’s Saturday night at the park looked like. Even with light, passing showers initially during our visit we managed to do a handful of rides including Houdini’s Great Escape, Skull Mountain, Cyborg Cyber Spin, the Joker, El Toro and twice each on Sky Screamer, Justice League, and Nitro. A great trip and what was my second to last before I head to college at the end of the week.

    This is one of the first years that I’m extremely torn over any predictions for the next attraction. While my gut is saying it will be a flat ride, a coaster isn’t entirely out of the question. Going back to Cyborg Media Day, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that next year’s addition could be some sort of record breaker if it’s taken over a year of planning.

    I’ll have to be on the lookout for these crates during my visit tomorrow. Maybe the end of the Stunt Arena with these paint markings? Dead Man’s Party could easily be moved to the Northern Star Arena should construction start near the old Freefall footprint.
  12. I would love to see the return of a “Right Stuff” style 3D theater to SFGA. However, the Right Stuff building would undoubtedly not be reused. Not only were the chairs removed and concrete levels demolished, but the back of the theater building has been repurposed as a maintenance electrical shop. Our only real use of this former theater I guess is the yearly fright fest haunts and mazes, sadly.

    A package would be nice. T-Rex/Raptor for the Golden Kingdom (original name/theme hopefully) and a Skywarp or other interesting flat ride (Giant Discovery or Zamperla Endeavor?) to round out the Metropolis area. In the spirit of Cyborg, maybe create a ride themed to Aquaman? Either way, glad to see both Golden Kingdom and Movie Town/Old Country/Metropolis rebuilt after years of neglect.

    Maybe one with increased capacity. The only thing keeping me from believing any Raptor speculation is that it doesn’t seem to make sense for the crowd sizes at the park. A new flat area would be nice for the Golden Kingdom/Plaza de Carnival path, but I do agree that the Metropolis section could use a nice coaster as an anchor for the section.
