    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    Actually, what's dumb is that all of these were Twitter memes that get reported as news, which drives the usual "War on Christmas" BS because of two things - people over the age of about 40 don't understand Twitter and people of certain political leanings have zero sense of humor and satire.

    Generally speaking, they won't if you don't tell them.

    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    When the media grabs ahold of running internet jokes like "Rudolph promotes bullying" or "Baby It's Cold Outside is Rapey" and turn it into a new story to drive traffic and people take seriously.

    Holiday in the Park 2018 - New Info & Guide Map

    Can you feel it all around you in Georgia?

    Ehh. If I don't know the general age of the forum, I'll censor myself. If I know it's largely adults present, I won't.

    They can be playing the hell out of that song from the tree show. I heard it two weeks ago and it's still rattling around in my head.

    Yeah, they really need to get on this. Their social media game is abysmal. I don't know if they need to contract with some influencers or just high a college-aged marketing intern and hand over the reigns. I always get the impression that the person handling it doesn't quite "get" how the various platforms work.
  8. From what I've heard, they have a hard time hiring people do the characters, especially the DC "faces". I can understand that. Those things are hot as hell and the thought of wearing on on a 90+ degree day with 1000% humidity is positively revolting.

    2020 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    I honestly don't think it's out of the realm of possibility to see Raptors at all/most of the SF in the coming years. The Proof of Concept installation has been a big success, they can do a bulk buy now.

    That may be intentional to cap crowd size considering how understaffed they are.

    2020 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    Press materials say it's similar to the Monster at Iowa Adventureland that cost about $9 million, which if they actually do have a fatwa against Gerstlauer, now would be a good time to drop it because that's a pretty nice price. Though I'm sure enthusiasts will complain about throughput and capacity if it doesn't seat at 20 a launch.
  12. Sure, the more the merrier.
  13. Usually the point of that is to gauge if you can write an argument and how well you take notes. They're just gonna put another super loop in El Diablo's spot. And they're gonna call it ... get ready ... El Diablo.
  14. Source? Because Six Flags had a waterpark in Florida and bailed on it after ten years. They've had ample opportunity to jump into that market and have avoided it. Let's not confuse wishful thinking on the part of pass-holders with actual facts. I know it's a popular thing to do around here, but it serves no purpose. But Paramount doesn't. Cedar Fair does. None of that ever happnened, so what's your point? Movie studios aren't buying back their old parks. Six Flags isn't buying Busch Gardens or SeaWorld. If anything, companies are starting to hunker down after the way the market has been acting and layoffs in the manufacturing sector.

    Six Flags Brazil (Hopi Hari)

    Yup, both the creditors committee and the largest shareholder want to turn park ops over to Six Flags.
  16. By leaving them in the queue area with ride attendants, the park would be assuming too much liability for phones. It's not like people are running around with $50 flip phones anymore. So yeah, I totally agree. Would be nice if they had an all season locker pass though.

    Pretty hard to feel cheated for that price, but I'm sure someone will. Love this event. Just wish they could put a small rink in somewhere for ice skating.
  18. Twister's days are pretty much numbered, as there's so few of those Huss Topspins left. I wouldn't mind seeing an Endeavor. I also wouldn't mind some sort of non-DC dark ride or even a fun house.
  19. I don't think the park is that filthy that it's the "what is most necessary". I've actually found it in pretty good shape. It's hard to keep things pristine when you have large turn-over of people coming in and out every day.
  20. Biggest single improvement would be a new lighting package on the Ferris Wheel. Second would be refreshing the paint on most of the marquee rides. Third would be an escape room upcharge (I hate the basic idea of these things, but apparently people with actual social skills love them). Last would be a sit-down restaurant and potentially a dinner theater.

    Aquaman Movie

    My thoughts are you can see it a week early if you have Amazon Prime. https://www.amazon.com/adlp/aquamanmovie

    Warner Bros. Jungle Habitat Revamp Idea

    You also leave out the fact that someone nearly got mauled to death, and that Warner Bros. did a real crap job of actually caring for the animals.

    Just as long as Black Friday is warmer. Park time for me that day!

    Yeah, but where would this forum be without wishful thinking and baseless speculation? Take out all the posts about RMC rumors and people making up grand plans to expand/more/retheme areas with zero evidence of that happening or indeed idea of logistics and costs and you wipe out 85% of the posts on this forum.
  25. 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.
