Memorial Day weekend, Comic Fest, Grand Opening of Wonder Woman. Best of luck to anyone at or near the park.

Are there any changes to the music being played across the park this year?  Apparently Great America removed most of the pop music from the park this year and have gone back to playing the old music that fits the theme of each area of the park.  It would be nice if this was done for all parks in the chain.

Speaking of which, where is new DC Universe themed area?

I believe it is a combination of Gotham City (previously Movietown) and the new Metropolis area. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Weather Bug isn’t calling for any rain Wednesday. That’s the app the park uses to make most weather-related decisions.

AccuWeather is saying a possible t-storm or shower.  Either way, I wouldn't get my shorts in a knot over it.

Went to the park today for the first time this year. I see they are still extra strict on the loose articles policy. I had my season pass in my pocket which I guess kinda looks like a phone even though its much thinner. When I was getting in line for The Joker the security guard stops me and asks what I have in my pocket. I said it was my season pass. He very sternly says, "Okay, pull it out!". So I show him and then he keeps asking about my back pocket and then finally lets me go. I get that it is for safety but still, I think if you have zipper pockets (which I did) they shouldn't make a big deal about it. And why are they not concerned that I am going on the ride wearing sunglasses but are concerned about something in a zippered pocket?

 

I'll give the security guard a pass for being rude because there were a lot of middle school trips  there today and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of them were giving him a hard time and lying about things so perhaps he was just tired of dealing with it.

You can't have anything in a zippered pocket either to prevent people from taking their phones out while on the ride. Sunglasses aren't too much of a concern, but a phone is basically getting hit with a flying brick.

A brick is all it will be after hitting the ground, or my head.

I never bring my phone in the park, but I think it's dumb that they don't allow you to bring keys or a wallet on the ride even if it is in a zippered pocket. I totally understand the phone risk because someone could still take it out during the ride, but no one is going to be taking out their keys or wallet on the ride. It's stupid and just an excuse for them to make more money from people renting lockers

I think the reason they also don't allow guests to bring keys and wallets on rides because the park don't want guests to lose keys and wallets as well. If you lose your keys, you would have a hard time trying to leave the park and if you lose your wallet, you could lose valuables such as a credit card, money, or your driver's license. I wish the park could install pouches under the seats on El Toro and Kingda Ka like what Cedar Fair did to Twisted Timbers and Steel Vengeance.

Speaking for myself , I deliberately take as little as possible to avoid losing/damaging things.Case in point:most times I go to Great Adv. or SFA the ONLY things I bring into the park are my car keys and season pass.

It's an insurance thing.  It's the same reason why they card senior citizens for beers at concert venues.  If you force everyone to disgorge their pockets regardless of whether or not they zipper, there's no issue with capricious exceptions or rules going unenforced.

Probably will be going to the park for the first time in 14 years this weekend. Haven't been since the opening year of Kingda Ka as a kid. Having kept up with the park through youtube, and theme park sites including this one and Gadv online for a large majority of that time, this event is a long time coming and I am sure looking forward to visiting the theme park where the community surrounding it helped shape my interest in theme parks, music, and the internet as a whole. Might even come back with a trip report :)

So far this season, of the three big local parks I have visited (GADV, Dorney, and Hershey), GADV has been the least crowded, at least while I was there.
