Only one "big bucks" project  

21 members have voted

  1. 1. Putting aside their current status today, if Great Adventure only had the option of choosing one of its "high cost" investments of the past, which one do you think would be the right one to fund?

    • 1999: War On Lines - Over 25 new rides including three coasters
      8
    • 2000: Hurricane Harbor Water Park
      5
    • 2005: Golden Kingdom including Kingda Ka, Temple of Tiger, Balin's Jungleland, etc.
      1
    • 2006: Plaza Del Carnaval including El Toro and Tango plus Bugs Bunny National Park
      7

Yikes that's really, really tough. HH and War on Lines added the most variety, while 2006 was my personal favorite due to El Toro. My most non-biased answer would be HH. It added massive revenue due to being a 2nd gate and is a complete destination in and of itself.

I would have chosen War on Lines if I am deciding for me personally but I voted for Hurricane Harbor for what is best for Great Adventure. A full size additional park (not something like Hershey's Boardwalk) was good for the size of the crowds the park gets and helps spread out crowds between the water park and theme park and also helps Great Adventure become more of a destination park.

I felt the same way when I voted for HH. Nicely said

Although my favorite is 2006 because of El Toro, Hurricane Harbor added a second gate to our property and was pretty well themed when it first opened so I picked it.

It also turned the park into a Multi Day Attraction (If they added a Hotel, I'd say resort)

I voted for the War On Lines because:(A)-it gave Great Adv. 2 of m favorite rides(Medusa & Houdini)and(B)-I think Great Adv. should've had HH an actual part of the theme park (like SFA) or waited for somebody like Great Wolf Lodge to make an offer.
