Gr.Adv.Debate #24: Do you miss the Super Hero characters at Great Adventure?

  

18 members have voted

  1. 1. The DC Super Heroes (Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc.) are no longer at the park for meet and greets. Do you miss them?

Don't miss them and just never really thought they "fit in" very well at any of the Six Flags parks. For some reason, the reconstituted versions of many of these characters turn me off (i.e., modern day Batman vs. TV show Batman). Not sure why, but they do.

Use them as Greeters for their named rides or attractions, and to assist -indirectly- with crowd control. Let them have a function beyond 'Street Character'.

I feel characters add emersion to an area but the super hero rides are spread all over so I think the characters are not needed in this case

I voted no, it was nice seeing them around the park but I never stopped to get a picture with them and don't really mind that much they they are gone.

I want to say I was only asked once this season if we had them. Other then that I don't think the GP misses them or even realizes they are gone.

I never noticed that they were gone either. When did they leave?

Why wouldn't anyone miss them? Universal n Disney are all aboard the Marvel train, so having DC Superheros is really a big trademark for the SF corporation. And kids know who Batman and Superman are and they wanna take pictures with them. I think they won't be gone for long. Especially with the new Batman vs Superman movie coming out in 2016 you know that SF is gonna want to take advantage of all that marketing.

But when I went to the park before SORA opened in 2013, Batman was there and maybe Robin (can't remember)

I go to SFGAm all the time and rarely if ever saw characters.

 

 

 

 

 

Although, I am very angry I never got to see Wonder Woman (Yes, I'm a 26 year old man)

Their fine in and around their attractions. But area out of place in other areas. As are the Looney Tunes. Id much prefer the non discript ones that were inplace during the first 3-4 years in the other areas.

I'm glad they're gone and wish the rides would change from super hero themes to park-appropriate themes, but I guess most of the park would have to actually be given "themes".
