I was so impressed with the park this year. When looking at theme parks as an industry, I tend to find that Six Flags is usually one of the lower-end companies but this year, they were top-notch. That's not to say that I don't love the park- I do, but typically Cedar Fair ends up having some nicer policies and better new additions. This year, I think Six Flags took the cake in terms of adaptability. They took this year that we were all given and made the best of it. I LOVE the new security screening. I hope that stays  for years to come as it is much more efficient and probably saves them money on the amount of people needed to operate. I also thought the reservation process was well-done. Sure, it had glitches at the beginning but I was pleasantly surprised after those were out of the way.

 

As for Great Adventure specifically, I thought they did an excellent job. OVer the Summer, it was great to be able to do something fun. I enjoyed the lower crowds that came with this year at first and rode A LOT.

When Summer ended, none of us thought there would be any special events this year but they did them, albeit a little differently. Hallowfest was fun! I don't think it was nearly as good as years past but there were some cool things about it. I love the lasers overhead the main midways- I think that should stay. I also enjoyed the fact that the mazes only allowed for one party to go in at a time. And I was thrilled to see no skip the line passes for the mazes as well. I really missed Dead Man's Party and I still think they could have done it properly with reservations required for the shows and several showings nightly. 

Holiday in the Park was better than any other year, I think. The street performers (which were also at Hallowfest) brought life to the midways and I think they should be here to stay!  I also loved the new Holiday Feast option! It was really great food for a theme park and would love to see it return.

 

The only thing that I do not like that the park/chain did this year was getting rid of cash. I can understand, from a safety standpoint, however, there was no need for the ride lockers to take away cash payments. It bothered me a lot every month seeing all the $1 charges. Unfortunately, I think that this year was the end of cash at the park- I don't blame them as it saves them money not having to keep track of where cash is at all times but it is very frustrating and I noticed I spent less money at the park this year because I don't like charging smaller things.

 

Overall, I had a great season and Six Flags Great Adventure should be proud of themselves! New goal: let's do what Busch Gardens is doing- YEAR ROUND SEASON haha- one can hope and dream, right?

^ Our nominees are typically things that have received multiple votes in prior years, new features for that season, as well as an occasional entry or two to round out a question.  Historically, Batman The Ride did not get enough votes in the past to include it.
