  1. Fright Fest 2017

    The park is open on the 30th? We should update the original post:
  2. The Green Lantern

    Rode GL once, and that was enough for me. It went to the bottom of my coaster list.
  3. New Show Productions for Holiday in the Park

    exactly!
  4. Fright Fest 2017

    Looks like I'll be going the 28th or 29th, which are the last two days. I wonder how crowded it will be then?
  5. Misc GA Mumblings

    could be a washout today....
  6. Big Fury - UPDATED SPOTLIGHT

    love the fish eye shot inside the coaster looking upwards!
  7. Misc GA Mumblings

    I wonder if the park is more profitable say on a Saturday night during FF as opposed to mid-summer?
  8. Wee Donuts Spotlight

    was Wee Donuts a franchise, or a one-off for the park?
  9. I was specifically referring to that rendering of all those roller coasters. How would they fit inside?
  10. Great Adventure Clowns

    I can't believe Penn worked at GA!
  11. 2019 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    The Showcase could get innovative and hold talent-type contests, if they don't want to pay for professional entertainers. We were there one day this summer and we heard music coming from the theater. It was hot outside, so I convinced my wife to go inside and see what was going on. They were having some type of cheer-type dance contest, and there were teams from all over the tri-state region. Although cheerleading is not really my thing, it was still mildly entertaining to watch the kids for about 45 minutes. I never saw the contest advertised, even in the park. There were a few hundred spectators in the theater - mostly relatives of the participants. I'm sure these people spent money while there. All it cost SF was air conditioning, electric and a few staff to run the lights and sound. Imagine if they did some variant of America's Got Talent or the X Factor? They could advertise the heck out of it, and attract people from all over. Especially if they were to use some local celebrities as judges. I think the return on investment would be significant. The types of events they could hold at Showcase are pretty vast. I'm not sure why they don't hold concerts in there for local bands or bands that are up and coming, and can't fill a larger or outdoor theater yet.
  12. The Great Adventure Riddle Game

    LOL - I don't think I've ever gotten one of these right. I must have subconsciously remembered that TV commercial!
  13. Wait - this is all going inside??
  14. Misc GA Mumblings

    Have you ever seen hot dogs boiling in yellow oily-looking water as they start to split apart at their ends? LOL
  15. Sky Caliber looping water slide - for real?

    from Wikipedia, but Sky Caliber is not listed as a ride on Mountain Creek's website:
