  1. All the props were still there and set up when I went the second week of August, so I'm guessing it'll be around this Fright Fest.
  2. The entire park just needs some consistent pathways. You can basically map out the park's history management wise by what concrete is where and what condition it is. Metropolis looks brand new, Golden Kingdom and Plaza are in alright shape, Boardwalk and Frontier are in bad shape, and Adventure Alley is absolutely horrible.
  3. This is kinda hard to understand without a picture, considering I was there two days ago and looked across the entire forest without seeing this structure. Remember, there is also a terror trail that used to be where it's going, which could explain the wooden structures. Can anyone else confirm?
  4. Is it just me, or is the picture not actually appearing?
  5. Looks to be a little short in height but compared to other dives, but considering how much they've been adding lately and in the future this knocks it out of the park. Great addition overall!
  6. Why are there random closed days in the middle of summer? June 20th and July 3rd are both the only days closed in their respect months, which makes no sense to me.
  7. And it'll only get worse next year, as Maxx Force will almost certainly draw more crowds than Wonder Woman. GAdv has such a big market to tap into, being dead center of both NYC and Philly, but corporate refuses to make the changes that'll bring in crowds.
  8. HitP is only really that busy during the week break between Christmas and New Year, when everyone is off work and school. Considering how the park is not very full the other 95% of the time, i'm not sure it'd be worth it from the park's perspective to staff and maintain another large section of the park when it'd sit almost completely empty during the rest of the event. Plus, I'm pretty sure Toro is very temperamental in the cold, Ka is notoriously unstable even in optimal conditions, and Zu would not be fun that high up in the cold. 3/4 major rides closed, leaving a very empty area of the park.
  9. The Skycoaster couldn't be in a better spot right now. You have to pass by it to get to to the left half of the park, bringing in a ton of foot traffic, and the ride can be seen from pretty much all around. It's even one of the major things you pass by on the Skyride.
  10. Where is this building again? Anyway, I'm all for tearing down the unused and abandoned buildings of the park, which is unfortunately too many.
  11. I'd love to see some Dark Knight TLC. The building itself is kind of an eyesore with the simple blue painting on it, and most effects on and around the ride are broken.
  12. Has the park even said anything about this and Diablo leaving? AFAIK, they're both listed as "closed for the season" on the park website and app, when one is all but confirmed to be gone and the other currently gone with a possibility of getting replaced.
  13. Considering there is four coasters in that photo and already know what three are, I'm thinking the suspended got cut which is sad. I'm sure the Chance Coaster will be great but another family suspended/inverted would've been nice too, especially indoors.
  14. Maybe all the slush will have cleaned the pathways of the leaves that sat on the ground during Fright Fest!
  15. What else is open from last year? The only difference I can spot is that the Parachute Tower won't be lit up this year and actually plans on running.
  16. The deal with the flames is that a while back, it was rumored that Six Flags was taking it out after it closed with the rest of Plaza Del Carnival during HitP. Apparently, the state doesn't like the joystick operating cycle on the ride (where the oeprator controls the train with a joystick), and Six Flags plans on taking it out, either for good or to replace it with a newer model. Themeing coming off the ride is usually a good indicator that a ride is on it's way out.
  17. Great Adventure would be fine, Sesame Place has a completely different demographic than GA. San Antonio and Fiesta Texas, however, would almost certainly be competing with each other, which isn't exactly what you want for two sister parks. I'm torn on this deal. On one hand, I feel like Seaworld could use a stable owner, and SF could use the extra revenue from the Orlando and San Diego parks. On the other, I don't trust SF to keep Busch Garden's and Seaworld's identities intact, and I wouldn't want them to become "generic amusement park #1231423".
  18. Overall, I felt that quality of decorations was improved even if quantity was down, from what I saw. Also, out of 5 visits, I saw the security gate Grim Reaper blow fog and glow red eyes a grand total of 1 time.
  19. How is the November 6-9 weekend crowd wise? Thinking about making a trip then but if it's mobbed I'm not gonna bother. One last weekend of Toro is tempting, though, so is it usually a dead weekend?
  20. I agree with 29yrs. There's only so many times you can ride the biggest attractions, and there middle ground is sorely lacking. They have the top tier attractions down pat, and the low tier (like children's lands and path side attractions) relatively well filled, but the middle ground of flat rides and family entertainment is near nonexistent. They don't have any shows or parades during the summer season, they ripped out most of the special "nook and cranny" things like the Axis Chemical Wash or the Tiger Shows, and if you're not riding things there's literally nothing for you to do. They have multiple stadiums that sit empty for most of the season, why not throw a few special acts or dance parties in there? Why not make themed parades that travel throughout the park? Just do something!
  21. I'm hoping that because it's so far out a lot of stuff hasn't been finalized yet, because I doubt Hershey of all places would actually open an ice cream creating experience as "ice cream parlor". From what we we can see it looks like a good looking area, I just they add more flair to it before it's done. With Meadowlands Xanadu opening soon as another direct competitor and now this I really hope SF Corporate will do something big 2020. I know nothing SF is willing to put out will beat this but another large scale coaster would be nice.
  22. How do they make it scary? Doesn't seem like the type of thing to easily accompany scare actors, so maybe video projections?
  23. With Fort Wilderness gone in favor of Joker I don't think we'll see the Stuntshow arena removed. It's still used for events like Band competitions and Cheerfests, along with the usual shows and parties. Plus, a coaster there removes a vital backroad/employee entrance to Movietown that'd have to be relocated to a much more inconvenient place.
  24. I wonder why that is? Most times the modifications are to fix an unsafe part of the ride, like when Chiller's Zero Gs were replaced with S hills to prevent valleying, or when Chiller got lapbar restraints to prevent headbanging. This also casts doubt on the theory that El Diablo will be modified instead of replaced, which would suck as then the park would basically go a year without a new ride.
  25. You can see one Here on the far left, and another Here, although at Great America. I remember a few of these in front of the CarnEvil Maze in the Boardwalk.
