Thanks for helping the site.  

I heard the weather will improve if you decide to take photos of the construction site and post them here. 

Literally, every thing you say is TRex or Raptor. I hope we never get them just because i am so SICK of hearing you talk about it, on every stinkin thread.    Rant over.

I'd guess this was some of the strip of land from the park to the interstate for the entrance road that was never built, and/or the land south of the park along Prospertown Lake. 

 

So the area behind the paint ball place and across from the Wawa, etc?

 

I am sure the park still plans to use the other side of the lake for Camporees and stuff, but that would be good area for a state park IMO.

 

I also just found the place where ya'll launch your canoes just now

I never knew they owned land abutting I-195, but if true, that would certainly be the most valuable land.  My concern is $8 million dollars of undeveloped land in Jackson, NJ sounds like a very large number of acres, most of which GA owned south of Prospertown Lake, and most of which is shielded from development for environmental reasons.  Thus, I'm not sure who would buy such a large number of acres of land that they knew had restrictions on the lands use.

 

Update:  So I checked the acreage owned by the park in the 2020 Annual Report.  It turns out that in the report, the company claims that 2,111 acres are now owned by the park while last year's report says 2,200 acres were owned by the park.  I guess I'm just baffled that 89 acres of undeveloped land in the area could possibly sell for $8 million dollars.

Perhaps the land's value is in being an carbon offset?

I don't think so because potentially developable land dropped from 456 acres to 367 acres in the annual reports.

 

This is what 89 acres of land looks like.

Based on information from the Ocean County Clerk's Office, back in December 2020, Six Flags sold land to Cardinale Jackson Crossing Associates for $7,775,823. This is the same company responsible for the Adventure Crossing development across from Wawa on Route 537.

 

I thought that all the land had already been sold to them. However,  you can see in the attached image, the area in blue is the additional land that was sold back in December. The land area is 91.41 acres in total.

Looks like NCSY still attends to visit Great Adventure this year. If you want to avoid the crowds the group will be at the park on Tues March 30th, Wed the 31st, and Thur April 1st. Through I imagine that reservations will be in short supply for those days anyway.

Yeah it is extremely crowded when they are there. I still remember around 10 years ago I was there on one of those days and I left after getting 2 rides in because even the minor rides/coasters were 45+ minute waits.

Went to the Safari on opening day today. I always thought the piece of track in the baboon area came from Lightning Loops, but now i’m not sure. Anyone know which coaster it came from?
