  1. Disney Parks additions

    That would be annoying for there to be a charge with admission going up so much each year (a 4 day non hopper ticket is up to $380!) and for the Magic Kingdom, no way to avoid getting to the park without using their transportation. We almost always stay offsite and the few times we stay on site, we drive to the parks anyway since I find the bus system more trouble than it's worth and if they charged for that as well, I don't think I would ever want to take a bus there again. Tokyo Disneyland charges for their monorail but I think that is because of some kind of law with transportation.
  2. GAH Members' Birthday Thread

    Happy Birthday Daved Thomson
  3. Disney Parks additions

    I would hate to see the monorail closed, it's a shame they haven't replaced the vehicles as often as they have in Disneyland.
  4. You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    There's a road near where I live that is 30 mph, no one goes 30 or even 40, most go 45 - 50. There is a spot where there is sometimes a police car that is kind of hidden and I have seen them pull over people for speeding. I won't go more than 35 - 39 mph because of that, I know people hate it and get tailgated occasionally but I'm not taking a chance of getting a ticket, possible points and having my insurance increase. I could probably type up a whole page of things that annoy me about drivers in my area. It seems like every day someone is in an opposing traffic lane at a shopping center or making a left turn from the wrong lane. I guess it's because some of the entrances are confusing and many of them are right near I-81 exits and it is drivers not from the area (a lot of license plates from NY)
  5. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    I hate that there are Philadelphia fans like that. It gives all Philadelphia sports fans a bad reputation. I would never say anything to someone who might be a fan of another team. I don't lIke confrontations in general and I know when I go to an opposing team's stadium, I would hope I would be left alone except some joking around. Thankfully the worst I have run into at 9 stadiums was just some cursing after the Phillies won against the Pirates and Giants.
  6. Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    Most of the times re-rides are allowed. Once last year they wouldn't let me re-ride past closing time at Comet even though the train I had just ridden in was going out 2/3 empty for the last ride of the night (I never had that problem at Great Adventure). Another time in October at Wildcat they made everyone walk around. Every other trip to the park when it was empty, I was allowed to re-ride.
  7. Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    I don't think it will. I rarely saw the regular Fast Track being used this past season and the merge points are far enough back that it will make it difficult for anyone using the system to constantly re-ride something like Storm Runner over and over again without waiting.
  8. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    If the Phillies were to sign a good starting pitcher (maybe Alex Cobb) I feel like they have a slight chance at a Wild Card if everything goes right. During the 2nd half last year they only 1 game under .500. The Mets could probably get a Wild Card if they don't have so many injuries this year. I'd rather see them win the division than the Nationals, since the Nationals are easily my most hated MLB team.

  10. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    If that was why the Eagles won, is there any chance of you also becoming a fan of the Phillies, Flyers and 76ers?
  11. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    I finally get to see a Super Bowl win and having it be against Tom Brady and the Patriots makes it even better after the Eagles lost to them 13 years ago. From watching the reports, it looks like it was crazy in Philadelphia tonight.
  12. Batman: The Ride

    Everyone seems to go to the other side of the park at opening. A few years ago on a Friday during Fright Fest, I went to Batman first and got a solo ride.
  13. I don't like the new names either. Maybe if the coaster actually raced, it wouldn't be as bad. From reading trip reports over the years since they stopped running 1 side backwards, it sounds like that sometimes only 1 side is open.
  14. Where are you going in 2018?

    Definitely: Great Adventure Dorney Knoebels Hersheypark Maybe: Playland's Castaway Cove Quassy Lake Compounce SFNE
  15. Six Flags Additions for 2018

    I think it's probably close to an equal amount since the park offers a season pass for the go karts for around $25 or $30 that gives you unlimited rides for the season that seems like a good deal compared to $8 or $9 for 1 ride.
  16. I like how it's not just for schools with the senior centers and clubs mentioned. I remember always looking forward to a similar type of programming from the local wildlife center in elementary school where they would visit once or twice a year and bring animals into the classroom.
  17. Hershey Park 2018 new rides

    Another new addition this year is unlimited Fast Track with pricing comparable to Platinum Flash Pass. http://www.hersheypark.com/rides/ride-upgrades.php
  18. Maybe the overflow lot next to the pick up / drop off lot too? It seems like that lot is always empty except on the most crowded days of the year.
  19. Busch Gardens Curse of Darkastle ride closed

    It's official, the ride is closing:
  20. How long after it's built until enthusiasts start showing up at the house begging to be able to ride it?
  21. Misc GA Mumblings

    I guess maybe if Great Adventure was in southern NJ, it would work out better for them to support a Philadelphia team. I remember when I saw this ad in the park in 2013, it was surprising, especially because their stadium is over an hour and a half away from Great Adventure.
  22. Misc GA Mumblings

    I wonder if Great Adventure is going to make a bet with SFNE for the Super Bowl?
  23. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    I think I can relax now, or at least until next Sunday. That was such a nerve-wracking Eagles game.
  24. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    Crowds were similar when I was there on a Saturday in January a few years ago. I didn't wait more than 15 minutes for anything.
  25. Misc GA Mumblings

    Part of the 2018 calendar has been posted (just April, May and June). https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure/plan-your-visit/park-operating-schedule The park is open until 9 instead of 8 during Spring Break week (except Easter Sunday). Once daily operations start, there are no more 6:00 or 7:00 closings on weekdays in late May and early June.
