  3. We re-posted a Facebook post from Stansphotos.com on our FB page and I wanted to share them here for those not on FB. I tried to go to Stansphotos.com, and the website is blocked as being non-secure by my browser... They're some great shots and I was really happy to see them!

  4. This will ALWAYS be our wish! Personally I'd love to see hotel with indoor water park like Six Flags built at Great Escape. Back in September I got to stay at the Dream More Resort at Dollywood and it really made our time there an amazing vacation and not just a "trip to a theme park".

  6. Some of the things we posted that were more "exciting" have already happened. We try to keep things realistic in the way of our wishes-- things that are relatively simple for the park to attain. In all honesty we'd love to wish for a steam train ride around the lake, a monorail connecting the theme park, water park and a hotel, and a whole lot of other pie in the sky wishes, but we know there are limits to what the park can and can't do. Things like this wish for a new water ride are even a stretch, but we know that (quite a few times now) these easier to fulfill wishes that make the park a nicer place actually get listened to and acted on. We've all dreamed of what we wish the park could do, but there has to be some basis in what is actually attainable and feasible with the current state of the company and their finances.

  7. Thank you, Harry. It has always been the incredibly small, detailed minutia that I have always enjoyed the most. While I never had the opportunity to go under the stadium as you did, as part of the Employee Fun Olympics during the summer of 1985, I got myself into the competition as a jouster against another department's opposing jouster. I didn't last more than :15 seconds on the floating platform, largely because I had not even thought about the weight of the jousts themselves. But, as a loser in the competition, I did manage to swim in the main pool and, at the time, found that to be incredibly thrilling!

  8. I am not an expert on the salinization process but I was fortunate enough to have guided tour under the seats just before the stadium was demolished. The two large blocked-in portions were used for water storage and the six bins in the middle contained a sand mixture that was used in the conversion process from fresh to salt water. All three areas were linked by huge pipelines and monitoring equipment. The structures inside the pool were just temporary platforms used while they finished off the pool's walls including electrical lighting.

  11. Always good to see a Mid-March opening. Holiday in the Park really spoils us now with the park only closed 3 months out of the year.

  12. Taken on May 2, 1974, here is a rare aerial view of the Aqua Spectacle under construction. Much of the construction of the Enchanted Forest theme park took place with little to any details being leaked to the public. A local newspaper captioned this photo as "One of the mysterious amusement structures rises roundly at the park."

  13. Sorry for the delay in responding... The plan was for all the larger items to be placed in backstage storage for "future use". There have been a few changes of key personnel so I am hoping someone is still watching over these things. Since the museum, a couple items were saved at my request (like a segment of bleachers from the Aqua Stadium) which I hope made it to the historic stockpile.

  16. Even though the DC Comics-inspired rides are overdone,they COULD have the building turned into the Legion Of Doom headquarters and have 2 or 3 small rides (like a rotor and something else) with names like "Riddler's Revenge". However I would prefer a 4D movie theater with a wall-to-wall screen, Dolby Atmos Stereo and scent machines.With a cinema it would be easy to update-just have a different type of movie for each season (summer/Fright Fest/HITP).

  17. I think Great Adv. should also get those old-school Mold-A-Rama machines and have them make molds of the coasters.

  21. Here is what I was thinking for rapids - RENAME CONGO RAPIDS TO MULLICA RIVER RAFTING ADVENTURES With Adventure Rivers long gone, the name Congo Rapids seems out of place especially next to what is now the Pine Barrens section of the park. In an effort to tie the ride into the new Jersey Devil Coaster area, the rapids ride should be renamed Mullica River Rafting Adventures. The Mullica is the Pine Barrens' longest river and is located next to Leeds Point, home of the Jersey Devil. The new name emphasizes "rafting" more so than "rapids" and theming along the ride could include scenery with campsites, cabins, fisherman, and even the Leeds' family house.

  22. It would be great to see more Six Flags branded game prizes, along with other game prizes that are equally souvenir and game prize. I'm not a game player and usually don't play them, but if they were giving away prizes that were unique and specific to the park, I might. I always remember Dorney used to have Steel Force plush they'd give away at games, and I thought it was great souvenir.

  23. I find your comments to be extremely rude. I can't believe you actually have the nerve to tell the owners of the forum what to post on their own forum.

  25. I always look at Hershey's parking lot as the example of what GA's should be. They have a raised island down the middle with walkways and trees to keep pedestrians safer from the cars. There's is designed with tram lanes on each side, and even if the trams aren't running or you decide to walk, it's a safe, pleasant experience.

  27. Sigh. I had hoped that these would have been more exciting, funnier, fresh, and new this year. Here’s hoping that better “days” are coming and not just the same generic, and sometimes repeated previous years. Fingers crossed.
