GAdv Opening Weekend Photos

Recommended Posts

We visited the park Saturday 3/31, the second day of the season. It was a very stressful visit due to hours spent on Pass/Member issues and other circumstances stemming from lack of employees, training, and overall preparedness, but I look forward to those hopefully getting better over the season and for the future.


I photographed as much as I remembered to check out, from Cyborg construction, restaurant changes, log flume work, and so on.


Full album here: https://imgur.com/a/phtDx (LOTS more photos than I posted below)


Some highlights:





Cyborg Wide View



Cyborg Aerial View



Go Fresh by Nitro will soon be Primo's Pasta (Menu close-up in full album)



Liberty Pub removed for construction of the "Ale House"



Right across from that is construction on (what I assume to be) Liberty Snacks & Dippin' Dots



Log Flume Drop Refurbishment (Also, Best of the West was closed)



A very vibrant Sugar Shack has replaced the Cold Stone attached to G.A. Cafe



The preferred lot now has these pole barriers to protect pedestrians along the fence. They are also along Superman's fence.



The ever-changing building right outside the main gate is now Membership Services



The new Season Pass Headquarters, next to Skyscreamer, where you should NOT go for Membership questions. (read the sign)



The best sunset photo I've ever taken



Swashbuckler is not quite there. Assuming it's still in maintenance.



New 2018 Great Adventure shirt



The new Membership Priority Entrance at the main gate

LOL I had a picture or two of Nitro in the same position that I thought came out so great but I never did post it. Now after seeing yours I think my picture is mediocre at best.

I love the shirts this year.  I got one myself.  They’re a great deal ($8.99 if I remember).  They look pretty good too.

These shots are absolutely amazing! What camera do you use? 


Thanks! These were all taken with either a Panasonic Lumix GH5 or my phone (Google Pixel 2 XL, sometimes with a Moment Wide Angel lens)

I also sometimes use a Canon eos m, but didn't bring it this time.
