It feels like they're starting Fright Fest earlier this year.  For some reason, I thought there were two "bonus weekends" between end of daily ops and start of Fright Fest.  Or I could just be misremembering.

 Fright Fest is a huge draw for the park. They are smart to capitalize on it and bring in the extra attendance which they would not if they just had just filler weekends.

 

After all, if Disney World can start Halloween in mid August then mid-September is not out of line. 

 

 On a sidenote, I think this is the first time that Fright Fest will begin with Hurricane Harbor still open!

Found this at Screamscape this morning:

Park News - (9/10/18) I'm not sure how true this is, but an odd rumor came in over the weekend claiming that El Diablo could leave at the end of the 2018 season. Anyone else heard this, or is it complete nonsense? Personally I’m not buying it just yet...

Could Super Loop could move to near by Justice League and Cyborg and themed to DC anyways in 2019?

Unfortunately I think the claim is true. ¬†I‚Äôve heard from multiple people in management¬†that this will be moving to La Ronde as their new for 2019 attraction- ‚ÄúChaos‚ÄĚ.

I'm not buying it just yet. But I would welcome it in Metropolis as I thought the placement was an afterthought and it being in Metropolis would be a better fit. Of course themed different.

I could see Six Flags upgrading the older loops with the features of the new loops installed in 2018, which are quieter and have a computer controlled cycle instead of a joystick.

if el diablo moved to metropolis, i could see it retheme to what pineracer been saying, the flash speed force, and used the space for 2 flat rides, one flat reusing el diablo name and a zamperla sombrero with another walkway to golden kingdom

I’m hoping that removing Diablo is the official start of land clearing for a new coaster. They promised something exciting was going to replace RT. Hopefully 2020 is when they deliver on that promise.

I have absolutely no basis for my comment, but I find it hard to believe that the economics makes sense to move El Diablo. This is not a high budget ride, and I would have to think that the cost of demantling, shipping, and re-installing El Diablo is just not worth it.

i remember 2 seasons ago, there is a cartoon network banner about the powerpuff girls and teen titans go crossover, could this be the beginning of six flags being bought by warnermedia?, the song from willy wonka is playing in main street area, willy wonka arcade games in both game center and studio 28 arcade, suicide squad themed scare zone in six flags magic mountain, the use of harley quinn in suicide squad form, animaniacs meet and greet areas (picture below),

impreactical jokers (which is a warner bros show) ads in the congo rapids, and now superman vr in both six flags and warner bros theme parks!?!?!?!?!?!?!, i love to see warnermedia to buy six flags, they could do better theming, shows, special events, meet and greets, and promotions for upcoming movies.

^No, I don’t see AT&T (owner of warnermedia) buying Six Flags.  They would just make memberships more confusing by locking people into multi-year contracts when you bundle your Six Flags membership with cell phone/internet/tv/and home phone service.

Went to the park today and saw there was some large emergency response setup in the drop off lot. Big tents and several large camper bunks.

I would imagine its a gathering/staging area for sending help to the Carolinas.  It was on the news tonight that teams are heading that way to be on standby after the storm.

Which park has the Animaniacs at? My kids love them.  I remember a long time ago (late 90's) they were there. I was also groped by Wacko lol (there's a picture floating around here somewhere)

If El Diablo are removed, will Great Adventure replaces with a giant super loop similar to SFGam and SFOT in next year as second addition to Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth so we will have two new flat rides for 2019 at SFGadv?

No Sir, not gonna happen.

In another forum I saw pictures of Cedar Point's sky ride gondolas decorated to look like jack-o-lanterns.I wish Great Adv. would do something like that!

Anyone know how to sign up for the Rewards program? Just activated my Platinum pass at the park yesterday and I can't find anywhere on the mypass.sixflags to register.

 

Go to the Membership Portal - https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure/manage-pass

Hit Update Account link.

Box for Rewards Program enrollment should be on the bottom of that page.
