  1. El Toro/KK loose article policy

    I was worried about our drink bottles getting stolen, but so far it hasn't happened. I wrote our names on them with a sharpie, but I'm not sure if that is a deterrent or not. I also typically place a hat over the bottles when I place them in the shelf or on the floor during a ride. It definitely happens, as my daughter got calls from several angry patrons when she worked at customer relations a couple years ago.

    that whole area below the flume is already a wasteland, which is a shame
  4. Dancin' on Air at Great Adventure 1985

    Wow - what a rush! I actually wore parachute pants, but never a mesh or half shirt. IIRC I saw Kool and the Gang in concert at GA sometime around then. But I don't remember this Dancin' on Air. My daughter, who is a hair stylist, laughs so hard (or cringes) when she sees the 80's hair.

    no doubt - I wish GA had something similar remove Houdini and build one!
  6. Kennywood Removing Log Jammer

    I wouldn't be surprised if GA's log flume days are numbered. Last time I rode it, the trough had significant fiberglass patching at the joints. The lift sections are jarring bumpy, and many locations along the ride are pretty rough, with the boats bouncing off the walls. And several times I visited this season, the ride was out of commission.

    is the roof lifted by pumping air into the building?
  8. Willow Grove Park.

    It closed almost a decade before I moved down to the Philadelphia area. It reminds me a lot of Dutch Wonderland, which is less than an hour from Willow Grove.
  9. FantasticLand - A Thriller

    hmmmm.....I might have to get this book......
  10. Celebrate! - An Americana Music Hall Show

    That is so cool. I often think that if I didn't go into Civil Engineering I would have had the same career path you did.

    but who wears the better spandex Onesies?
  12. Celebrate! - An Americana Music Hall Show

    I'm amazed that they were using wireless microphones back in 1978 - they were ahead of their time! I cringe every time I think about the fact that GF has a 1500 seat theater and it is only used rarely on special occasions. Someone from SF should visit Dollywood, who was just awarded Best Shows. Maybe they could learn something.

    I come from the other direction so I don't even have to deal with the Wawa!
  14. The Future of Old Country?

    I like it!
  15. El Toro wins Best Wooden Coaster Golden Ticket 2017

    Not a great showing for Six Flags in general....
