  1. When Great Adventure announced on April Fools Day that Holiday In The Park would be making its debut this season, honestly I thought it was an April Fools' Joke, but sure enough it was no joke and I was really excited about potentially going in December. The 2015 season has been one for the ages for myself, I made six visits throughout the year, and I added one more visit this past weekend. This was my first visit to an amusement park in the month of December in my life. I arrived at the park on a beautiful early December day at 1:15 pm, and it was not crowded at all coming in, but I did
  2. My top 5 at Great Adventure are: 1. Nitro-- My all-time favorite coaster anytime, lots of airtime and very smooth, it just doesn't let up, love riding this at night, you truly feel like you are in heaven, I usually save this ride, the magnificent Nitro for my last ride of the day/night 2. El Toro "The Bull"-- this is a toss-up with Nitro, very intense, but smooth ride, does not let up, you feel like you are flying out of your seat, if this was March Madness, it would easily be a top (# 1) seed. If I can't close with Nitro, I would close it with this ride, during ROTB this year, I rod
  3. Outstanding pictures, Matt!!! It was very nice meeting you on the Kingda Ka/Zumanjaro/Bizarro tour and it was my third straight Riding of the Bull, I made my ACE debut at ROTB Cinco. I'm glad the weather held up the entire day and night.
  4. I left my house at 5:00 am to attend Riding of the Bull Siete, hosted by the American Coaster Enthusiasts New Jersey Region at Great Adventure. I arrived at the park shortly before 8:00 am, and I had to wait 15 minutes before they opened the toll plaza. After going through the plaza, I picked up my registration envelope and signed up for two of the three tours being offered, they were the same tours for Coaster Con XXXVIII. I signed up for the Houdini/Superman/Green Lantern tour at 12:05, and the Kingda Ka/Zumanjaro/Bizarro tour at 5:20 after lunch. The day began with morning exclusive rid
  5. I think it would be pretty cool, it would make it #1. Kingda Ka is in my top 3 at Great Adventure
  6. Last year, I went to Fright Fest the week before Halloween on a Saturday, and the crowds were absolutely insane. When my father went to come pick me up for the night, He stood in bumper-to-bumper traffic on Rt. 537 for 45 minutes, and had to turn around to go on the other side of the road's entrance. Your best bet would be to go on Fridays or Sundays. Not sure if I will go to FF this year though.
  7. I am now up to 85 coasters, gained a few new coaster credits within the last two weeks
  8. I am very happy with the latest addition for next year. It's something different and I am looking forward to trying it out, we already have an outstanding lineup of coasters, this makes it better.
  9. I was at the park today, and they are really making progress, Fort Independence is slowly coming down
  10. I made my 5th visit to Six Flags Great Adventure for the 2015 season on Wednesday September 2, 2015. It was my 2nd park visit in as many weeks, as I went to Hershey last week. My sister came up with the idea because my mother and her were going to Belmar Beach for the day and they invited me to go to Six Flags while they were at the beach. Why not, I have nothing to lose and I have a season pass membership, and that is the whole point of having a season pass to make unlimited visits to the park. I arrived at the park shortly after 10:00 am, and it doesn't look like it's going to be crowded
  11. For the first time since Coaster Con XXXVIII, I visited Hershey Park in the sweetest place on Earth, Hershey PA. I arrived at the park around 10:15 am. After having problems with my printer and my phone (which didn't cooperate on the way), I went to guest relations to get my ticket for the day. After I got my ticket, I went to the Hospitality Services center in the main area of the park to see if I could purchase a Fast Track pass for the day to get on the coasters quickly, I was able to purchase the pass. The pass itself is like the Flash Pass System at Six Flags and the Cedar Fair Wristband.
  12. I don't think you should have a problem buying a regular flash pass, when I went for my first visit of the 2015 season, I arrived at the park after 3:30 PM, and there were still plenty of flash passes available. I was able to buy one for the remainder of that day. In my honest opinion, I love using the system and use it often, it is one of the best inventions ever. If you have a season pass, they will ask you for it, and they usually ask for the last 4 digits of your pass. If not, you will need to bring any form of photo identification (ex. driver's license). You should consider buying the fla
  13. I know it may be a little expensive, my suggestion would be either the gold or platinum level flash pass. The Gold includes Zumanjaro and Skyscreamer, the Platinum includes the three rides including El Diablo, with that you can wait once and ride twice. When I go, I usually get the gold flash pass and on occasion, the Platinum. I personally love using the system. It is a good idea.
  14. As of July 2015, I have been on 76 coasters in my life, gained many new coaster credits within the last year
  15. The sun has set on one of the most memorable weeks I have had since joining ACE in 2013, it was time to head back to New York and reality. I wanted to stay until the end of Coaster Con XXXVIII, but my family and I decided that we would leave a little bit earlier than planned, when I got up, I wanted to go to breakfast and see some of my friends one last time before hitting the road and thank them for everything from the past week. We got an oversized wine glass from Wildwood, and our group picture as well. I didn't get on any rides on my last day, and that is okay with me. I know I will be bac
