  1. Hi everyone. I visited the park this past Friday, but I never posted my trip report because I've been busy every day since then (also, because I apparently wasn't the only one from this website who was at the park that day) Despite the CHILLY weather and reduced capacity, there was a sizeable number of guests at the park. After entering the park at 10:45-ish, my mother and I first went to Superman. It had a 45 minute wait since there was only one train operating, and also because it broke down for a bit. After some lunch at the Yum Yum Cafe, we went on the Big Wheel (which still has separat

  3. Toro was HAULING tonight for Power Hours, I got 4 rides on it and got to do a bunch of the other coasters in a short amount of time. The 5 bucks was definitely worth it tbh, staying at the park till late was a plus too

  8. The catch phase of the Comic Book Guy from the Simpson's describes my third trip to GADV in 2021. This trip was on Sunday, 04/19/21. Arrived at the park at 3 PM and saw the parking lot was pretty full, with preferred half full. Got in the park and all of the attractions had long lines like in the middle of Summer. I was at the park for two hours and only got on one ride, the drop tower which took half an hour wait in single riders with just 3 people in front of me. Even small rides like the Tea Cups had an hour wait, I made the tough call to leave early at 5 as I was having a misable time at t

  9. On Monday I went to Busch Gardens Tampa. My last time at the park was in January 2012 so there had been some new coasters added since then. Last month I bought a Platinum Pass when it was on sale and it looks like there are a lot of great benefits like 6 bring a friend free tickets that you can use anytime. Cobra's Curse had just reopened after a breakdown with no wait. The elevator lift was something different compared to the traditional lift hill and I liked how there was a forwards section, then backwards and finally spinning without the spinning being too much.

  11. We are happy to introduce a new project here at GAH! Still in early development, we hope to populate a special calendar titled "This Day in Great Adventure History" which will include all the major events from Great Adventure's past. Below is a sample entry. The calendar can be viewed by clicking "Calendar" from the options at the top of the screen and then by clicking the down arrow following "All Calendars" and by selecting "This Day in Great Adventure History". HERE is a quick link to this feature. Current RETRO calendar entries will also appear on the Upcoming Events lis

  12. After 7 months of no parks and coasters I was looking forward to the beginning of the 2021 amusement park season until I saw the wait times on Hersheypark's app on Friday and Saturday. Friday was bad but Saturday was even worse with Candymonium with a 3 hour posted wait and Fahrenheit and Great Bear with 4 hour posted waits. I knew it wouldn't be walk ons like Easter a few years ago with everyone wanting to get out and start going places again after last year. My sister also went with me to the park. The parking lot wasn't too crowded on Sunday but lines were still bad with some cl

  13. There's a famous story at Universal of a squirrel who chewed through the wires of the giant Christmas tree. As a tribute/joke they added a squirrel animatronic to the tree who pops out periodically: This past year he became an even bigger celebrity with his own line of merchandise:

  15. Compounding the issue is that some manufacturers use wire insulation made from Soy which makes it quite tasty to rodents. Its real big problem with modern cars with their extensive computer controls that require complex wire harnesses.

  17. Here is a crazy idea. Dorney could retheme their Zephyr train to Snowpiercer. Its already nearly the same basic early diesel streamliner shape as Snowpiercer, just a lot smaller.

  20. Looking at some of the photos provided by @EasternThrillsyesterday (such as this one), it appears that the concrete pier near the edge of the queue is NOT permanent. If you look to the left of the brown shed, you will notice a concrete block identical to the one in the queue house. Looking at this photo (also courtesy of EasternThrills), you can spot a total of 5 of these concrete blocks scattered around the queue area. Block 1 is in front of the brown shed, Block 2 is inside of the area of the queue building, Block 3 is near the edge of the queue house between Blocks 1 and 2

  21. So this is personally a fever dream of mine that I would absolutely love to be true, but realistically this would probably never happen. Covid also killed any chance of this happening. 20xx Six Flags is doing their announcements for the next season, but this year instead of super fast back to back announcements, Great Adventures announcement has a teaser trailer instead of a direct announcement. It fades to black, and it cuts to a NoLimits2 recreation of the el toro area at night (imagine the POV of the camera being at macho nacho, where you can see The drop of toro and the station, and you

  22. It's almost a year later and I have some good news. I might be a ride op at Nickelodeon Universe in the American Dream Mall this summer. I don't really like Nick (except for SpongeBob and sometimes Rocko) but I'll try my best to be a good ride op, considering how bad operations are at that park. I'll just end up quoting SpongeBob and asking if the Turtles are Japanese-Italian.

  23. Park News - (5/5/21) Six Flags Darien Lake has confirmed that Grizzly Run, the park’s river rapids ride, is officially closed and will be removed to make way for future new additions. The rapids ride goes take up a significant bit of space in the South-Eastern corner of the theme park that could be re-purposed and filled with a number of different rides, or even a whole land full of rides. Unfortunately one less Rapids ride in the world.
