    Hopefully a family flat so there's something else to do in that area that appeals to a larger audience.

    No, they *licensed out the right to rent lockers to a third party vendor*. SF already got paid. They get paid whether you use their locker or not. As for the rest of your rant ... it's a publicly listed company. Their job is to make money for their shareholders first and foremost, make you happy second. And I'm not sure how you're equating a locker policy with over regulation with the amusement industry has no Federal oversight and even in NJ - which has some of the toughest laws for the industry - there are no loose article laws stating that articles must be placed in a locker, merely that patrons must follow the safety directives of the park. Do you know what's even worse customer service than making sure you lose neither lose your $700+ phone or the keys to your ride home? Having someone's nose or eye socket broken on one of your rides.

    Keys hurt when they fly out of your pocket and hit people. It's not about making money - a third party licenses the right to operate lockers there so SF already got paid. It's about SF lowering their litigation risks and insurance premiums. If people don't bring keys or cell phones onto rides, they can't fly out of hands/pockets and fewer people will injured.

    Do you plan on buying one of GA's new Membership plans?

    Purple cups are dining pass cups, you don't need to show your pass.

    Okay, what's with the love for Panda Express? I've ate there. It's terrible. It's as terrible that vast majority of food in the park.

    Same. I think that will make or break this ride concept.

    Read it on one of the Facebook groups that has some insiders and park rats, so take it with a grain of salt. No timetable for reopen, which kills me as I freaking love this ride. It really is a pretty unique ride. Yes. This was my exact fear with these new perks on the busy days. Wait 90 minutes here to get a pass for a ride with a 60 minutes line. They seriously need to get this sort of thing worked out. All reports I read from this weekend read like horror stories. I sincerely hope they can get the staffing levels up to where they need to be to get the park running smoothly. I know it's tough when the college kids aren't home and they foreign workers aren't here yet. I just fear they won't get the number of foreign workers they'd had in previous years. Also, I really hope someone is taking note of all of this and coming up with some plans for the future.

    Water ... park ... addition? Those words don't compute.

    Houdini is apparently getting a refurb. Hasn't opened yet.

    I'll pass on the magic tricks, but the rest would be cool.
  13. I really don't like Justice League. I think it's overhyped and really not that much fun and I hate shooter video games. I'd like it better if it was a just a souped-up dark ride. There, I said it. I feel better now.

    This is solely my opinion, but I've sat through way too many poorly produced, half-baked, bastardized versions of Broadway shows on cruise ships to ever voluntarily sit through a show that isn't actually on Broadway or featuring my brother's kids.

    Also, it's a non-coaster thrill ride. They need more of them.

    Vekoma Rides acquired by Sansei Technologies

    http://www.inparkmagazine.com/vekoma-acquisition/ Interesting article on the acquisition. Vekoma is to operate independently of the S&S parent. I wonder how long that will last, and what the long term impact on the industry will be. I can't imagine consolidation of manufacturers will be a long-term good.

    Of course they'd allow it provided they replant or protect a larger area. Hell, if they offer to pay for the sewer work running from along 537 clear through to Lakewood, Jackson would give them anything they'd want. This is Jackson Township, NJ. Everything is up for negotiation.

    Not nearly as uncomfortable as the Volare though. If I had to ride the two, I'd take the Thunderbolt, hand's down.

    Yes, I could not agree more! I know they have the light know at the main square but they need something grander.

    Great Train Ride

    I wish they still had something like this. It's always a must-ride at Knoebel's, if just to see if there are any squirrels on the back turn.

    Also went to Coney, but mainly just rode Cyclone and started the season off with a last row ride. Had some drinks at Ruby's, which I love. We were one and done on Soaring Eagle as it's terrible and Tickler wasn't doing it for us. Thunderbolt was down when we got there and the line was stacked down to the Carosel almost every time we went by, so it was mainly a Nathan's-Ruby's-Cyclone trip for us. Three rides on Cyclone, a spin through the Spook-a-Rama and a turn on the swing cars. Not a bad day.

    Disney Parks additions

    Exactly. And when that wears thing/people's contracts run out, they'll have a big event to kill off those characters and start doing "alternate" heros i.e. Miles Morales Spider-Man, Jane Foster as Thor, Bucky as the new Cap, etc. etc. etc.
