2017 Theme Park Map

Recommended Posts

Matt Kaiser    140

I compared the 2016 and 2017 maps. I realized there are a few things they added to the map this year that have actually existed for a while, such as the Dippin' Dots in front of the Parachutes.

 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Antique Photos went away, especially with the switch from DigiPhoto to Six Flags running their own photography.

Could it be - Antique Photos is gone.

 

WOW. That's a shame but then again I cant think of the last time I saw someone in the Antique Photo.

 

Speaking of photos, has anyone heard anything about season photo passes? We were told at the end of last season they couldn't sell them yet. I'm not sure what the issues is.

 

I also see, and this may have been mentioned before in another post but the Justice League gift shop is now Gotham City Gifts.

I guess this could be the answer to my question about the season photo pass.

Yup, the fate of DigiPhoto (The vendor SF used) was up in the air at the end of the season. Now it's said and done, with Six Flags taking over.

 

They actually just started selling 2017 photo passes. https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure/store/digital-photo-passes

There's conflicting info, though; The description says it's only valid at Great Adventure, while the passes on other SF park websites says it's valid at all SF parks.

It says JL is opening summer 2017. Does that mean it won't be ready for Memorial day weekend? They seem to be moving along with construction pretty quickly

Thats what they say with everything. It should open around Memorial Day or early June.

I've noticed them freely interchange "Summer" and "Late Spring" in past years, still both meaning Memorial Day, so I wouldn't look much into it.

I'd love to know the actual details of it. I want to get a photo pass, and I'll be at America next month, so I want to use it there too. I think someone says it has to be processed at the park, so if America's photo pass can be used at any park, I'll just get theirs and have it processed there.

Back around 2007, the park ran a $10 and under shop in Batman & Robin the Chiller's gift shop. They basically sold excess merchandise from prior seasons that wasn't sold.

Then a few years later there was Big Wheel Deals. I got a mug there with all the coaster logos on it, including some that were already removed at the time such as Viper. Hopefully this new store has similar types of older merchandise.

When I was there for HITP one of the stores had a discount rack, but with items not of much use. We bought Marvel can coolies for the kids for $2.99.

I went to the park in early November and a store near Kingda Ka had a clearance rack that sold merchandise from several years ago.

So whats the deal with runaway mine train being re named? New sign? Re tracked? Or just a typo?

Probably a typo.

Idk, if it's not a new sign, I'm not sure why they'd rename it, but even with a new sign it's confusing.

That just puts it in line whit what I call it. I don't think I ever had the mine in the middle when I call it out. It has always been the Runaway Train in my head

I do belive that the first 2 years it was "The Runaway Train"
