  1. There will not be one common announcement day for Six Flags this year. Some parks may not have announcements.
  2. This is similar to the Turbo Force up-charge ride we had in 2001/2002.
  3. A new pin featuring Congo Rapids will be available for members at the park this Sunday. Nice to see that the pin is accurate with twelve seats. The waterfall is hopefully a sign of something to come.
  4. That is a great video! The new ride seems so non-typical of what the park currently offers and by comparison looks very extreme. Maybe this is a test to see if it is popular and ultimately move from a mostly kids theme park to a thrill ride oriented one.
  5. It's obvious that the operations of Hurricane Harbor have been struggling lately. During any typical year, the park is pushed to its max especially during summer weekends with more than capacity crowds. This year the situation has worsened with throngs of people looking to get out of their houses and do something "normal" coupled with the nationwide worker shortage causing closed attractions and even less capacity for the over-capacity crowds. The results provide for something other than an ideal visit. The park knows this is a bad situation all to well and recently announced that admission will be limited to just season pass and membership holders and reservation requirements have been reinstated. People have been more than vocal to complain about this less than desired setup but what would you suggest? In your opinion, what is the best way to make Hurricane Harbor an enjoyable experience? Limit attendance? Increase capacity with additional attractions? Provide a higher wage to attract more lifeguards? What do you think?
  6. Who recalls being able to sign a track segment of Kingda Ka if you bought a 2005 Season Pass at the end of the 2004 season?
  7. Who remembers getting into Great Adventure for free on opening day 1984 if you brought a snowball? The special promotion tied into the introduction of the Sarajevo Bobsled which was new for that season.
  8. Have fun Scott! If you have a chance and can take some photos of Excalibur (our Evolution) that would be great.
