  1. Does anyone have a picture of the Monster Spin sign? I vaguely remember what it looked like. I believe it featured the mouth of a monster with the words Monster Spin on it. It was about the same size as the Dream Street Dazzler sign in the spotlight. I remember the sign standing alone in 1985 even though the ride was mostly removed for refurbishment.
  2. From 1976, here's a photo of one of the brightly colored souvenir carts as seen in the new main entrance area. Some of the souvenirs like the pennants and tiger/hot air balloon plate date back to 1974. I wouldn't mind having one of those inflatable dolphins with Great Adventure printed on the side.
  3. In 1977, double decker buses brought diners from Lincoln Center to Tavern on the Green. I don't know how popular it was but I think it was a great idea.
  4. Thanks for the report! It looks much warmer there than back in GA-ville. Are you going to hit the March 11th grand opening?
  5. From April 10, 1976 comes this old press photo. I can't help but think "Come play with us, Danny" when I see this!
  6. Thanks for sharing this Maddox121!
  7. It also looks like the maximum merchandise discount goes from 50% to 30% and food from 50% to 20%. The 50% off was the only reason I kept the DE-VIP. I don't think this is going to be pretty.
  8. One of the things that I love most is that the park continues to offer its guests extras that it really doesn't have to do - like Xpedition Dino, Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience, and free pins to name just a few.
  9. 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.
  10. On March 1, 1979, Rolling Thunder is announced as part of a major $10 million park expansion. Read the press release HERE.
  11. On March 23, 1988, Six Flags Great Adventure announces the new Condor ride. Read the press release HERE.
  12. On February 5, 1996, Six Flags Great Adventure announces plans for Skull Mountain. Read the press release HERE.
  13. I don’t care much for the Minions either but was never really impressed by the Shrek attraction. I would have liked for them to have kept the classic Alfred Hitchcock show and exhibit.
  14. The new Last Drop shop with its park specific souvenirs is off to a strong start with 50% of the votes in the Favorite Shop category.
  15. The Hurricane Mountain water slide always looks much more impressive from above.

  17. Another season has wrapped up and is now in the history books. Let us know what you like the most about the 2021 season!
  18. I think that’s one of the best parts of that ride - each time is different because of the riders and seating making it unpredictable.
