Misc GA Mumblings

The park was lucky that snow didn't fall off of that and hit riders. It won't be there for much longer thankfully. Was the park crowded? With the weather so unusually cold and nasty I don't think too many would show up.

It was pretty crowded. They didn't have to use the overflow or Hurricane Harbor lots but cars were just a few rows short of the back of the lot. I would say it was about the size of a summer Saturday crowd. It was definitely worth the park's efforts to open!

So they plowed out the parking lot, midways, and queues? Most have cost them a good bit to go though all that trouble. Still this freak storm was quite a downer for Halloween and the final weekend.

I was very glad the park opened, it was a little more crowded than I was expecting but I would take a crowded park over a closed park (Dorney) or a park with no coasters running (Hershey).

 

I didn't see snow anywhere so they must have gotten rid of all of it

 

Hopefully opening day is a week earlier this year and is April 1st and not April 8th

I read that the Jackson area was supposed to get 3 in, I guess they didn't get quite that much. Allentown got over 6 in so they would have had a much harder time cleaning out. Harrisburg got almost 10 in of snow, so Hershey probably did too.

It is a great clip. We have used some of that footage in past Spotlights like the Calypso and Skooter.

The "Fort Independence" sign has been removed from the dolphin stadium. Hopefully the Spider of Doom does not pay a visit this Fright Fest.

I'm curious if SF sends these to everyone or just random season pass holders.

 

I received a "food related" one several months back as well.

 

At any rate it looks like they are contemplating some pretty cool rides/attractions in the future.

In honor of Valentine's Day, anyone remember the GA t-shirts from the 80's that use to say

LOVE is a GREAT ADVENTURE!

 

We saw a girl wearing one at Busch Gardens Tampa yesterday! I thought I was seeing things...couldn't tell if it was the real thing or a reproduction but it featured the weird proto-rainbow logo. I should have asked her where she got it.

^I've been trying to find the shirt we saw yesterday, but so far I haven't found it. I'll post it when I do.
