^ It would not be a bad Idea! I have seen how long bumper cars lines can get!

Doubt it. I'm highly doubtful they've changed the plans and are reopening Autobahn...I think it's just some "confusion" on the part of a Screamscape source. The only way I could see this changing is if they discovered some problem with the site for the Sky Screamer and had to move it to the old Evolution pad where the bumper cars were going.

Today I was out by the park and saw a flatbed rig turn into the employee entrance carrying what looked to be heavy duty plywood for forms and some rather large pre-bent threaded rod; either the construction has started or they're preparing to start after the holidays. Also, the Batman Stunt Arena did have a banner for a short time promoting dive in the batman arena, but was removed after only about 3 days. Unfortunately, I cant find the sd card that had that picture on it - those micro sd phone cards seem to disappear once you remove them from your phone...

I like it because it is Great ADVENTURE specific while also reminding me of one of the original park areas Goodtime Alley. Best of all, it doesn't have a single thing to do with Super Heroes!

Can an Intamin Gyro or the Moser drop tower show up on Spinmeister's spot in 2013 to join the Adventure in the Alley?

Very true on both counts; I like that the area from the fountain to the carousel will still be known as "Fantasy Forest."

This is exactly what I was hoping for! As it was last year, Fantasy Forest was a very confusing area, due to the way Main Street split it in half, and how Lakefront borders it. Now, it'll be a little more clear.

The red paint is perfect for the Tornado joining the pirate theme of the Lakefront.

Glad to hear no more new superhero theming for this year.

Funtime's SkyFlyer page mentions "Then the customers are treated to a series of ups and downs as they spin backwards and forwards."

Backwards? I wonder if the ride can be programmed to spin backwards or if that simply means the rider twist their swing backwards? Their video clip does have a few riders turning around. I am sure this would be much harder with two-person swings, as well as a no-no at the park.

Even with the much shorter Wave Swingers you aren't allowed to twist the swings. GADV used to kick people off their old Wave Swinger for it.

And there are plenty of good reasons not to be happy while working there,not that it's Six Flags fault,it's just the nature of the theme park business.

It's not like there aren't ANY happy workers. i see plenty of them every time I visit. The Skyway workers, who probably have one of the hardest jobs (if not THE hardest job) in the park, almost always say Hello to me and ask me How I'm doing, and How my visit is going.
