  1. any idea which model we will get? http://www.abc-engineering.ch/cms/upload/Flyer/PDF_Rides/2.0_ABC-Flyer-ThrillRides-EN-4p.pdf
  2. i disagree with the fines because alot of the time the rides getting "stuck" are infact just the safety features of the ride stopping it...
  3. based on the way the company has been going over the past few seasons, I am expecting a Giant Frisbee!! I am honestly excited for some new flats if that is what we get... also welcome to the site mattkopp23
  4. Anyone have some good stories about being stuck on rides? Monday night I was at the park and by luck got stuck twice in a row! First I was stuck on Bizarro with two trains in front of me. Not sure why the ride broke down, but it did, and it was fun getting stuck lol. Maintenance quickly fixed the ride and we were unloaded in the station. Immediately following that I got stuck on my next ride, King Da Ka, once again right after my ride finished. After getting off the ride I saw them do something interesting I haven't seen before. They actually launched a train from the station that is normally
  5. I was going to make a trip to the Park on 4th of July but how bad does it really get? I want to get as much time there as possible in before I start working hence going on said Monday. Do you think it will get extremely bad?
  6. I would honestly hate to see El Toro go the route of a RMC though.
  7. Even 10, 15, 20 years down the line will something like this happen? Will we even see another Premier Era level ride?
  8. Rode today on the green side and it was such an amazing ride in my opinion. I was held upside down, in superman, upside down superman, and flipped all within 40 seconds!
  9. Only issue I had was with getting the bag on Joker's line... the security guard who was standing at the line and the regular employee couldn't decide if it was allowed. The employee said no but then the guard told them how it is a medical bag... in the end they let me through with it.
  10. Yup, no one can be blamed for this... it is just something that happens in this industry.
  11. Guess I won't be riding it for at least a few weeks as this was my last free weekend for a while. Next week is studying for finals in school and the following week are finals themselves so I wont be able to go any time soon. Luckily my school ends early this year so I might be able to get there by mid June and hopefully during work and school hours the park will be decently empty...
  12. I might head to the park tomorrow if I can get a friend or two to tag along... How bad do you think lines will be tomorrow?
  13. I hope they have another Season Pass only date as both yesterday and today they experienced large periods of downtime... I know that once it's open to general public the line will be huge. Maybe they can do some ert one night for it? I just hope I get a chance to ride it this year as I was so close today, maybe about 5 cars from boarding.
  14. Overview: Went to the park today with school for a end of year field trip. When we arrived at 10:00 the park entrance was full with people from schools and other groups. We got in the park around 10:20. Overall the lines were decently short today, longest being 1 hour for Nitro. Besides that all were 30 minutes or less. I was with a group of 4 including me, who stayed together the whole time. Once again I realized how difficult it is to get through the park with people who don't enjoy coasters or know the park. I still had fun though as we are all good friends and had a good time. Just wis
  15. Just got home from the park and can confirm Joker did go down... I was about to enter the line but the employee who watches over lines wouldn't let me go with my medical bag. While I was talking to them the ride got stuck as seen in my first photo. I walked over and got a snack from the stand right there and watched to see how long it would take the ride to be operating again. Seeing that many people were leaving the line I then got on line in hopes of it opening again. This time there was a security guard there as well as the employee. The security guard let me on with my bag. The ride contin
  16. Does anyone know what the requirements for getting a medical approved bag are? I have really bad allergies to various foods and in the past years they have gotten worse... I always need to carry with me allergy medications and other related items. I am going to start needing to bring my own food to the park as most things there give me a reaction. How do I go about this? Do I get a note from a doctor? What do I need to do?
  17. I was thinking about things I would do if I ran the park and one idea came up. Would it be possible for them to change or add to Kingda Ka? With the new PolerCoaster coming soon, Kingda Ka will be out of records... What if the park were to add to it... build up a little more... I know that is extremely unlikely and won't happen, but is it physically possible?
  18. In my opinion I think they are good but not the way we have them... Great Adventure is not the best at theming imo which plays into this. If they had rides named after related superheros in a certain area, and themed it to that, I think that it would of worked well. I do not like having the superhero rides just sprinkled around, and though they are clustered, the theming does not reflect that.
  19. Today was probably one of, if not, the best day I have had at the park despite some disappointing things. I do not remember the exact times I was doing everything but I remember the order, so I am just going to group it into approximate time periods. I went to the park from about 11:30AM and left just after 8:00PM. Overview As I said, I got to the park at around 11:30AM. First thing we did (group of 3, including myself) was go and check what rides were open. Due to the winds, many of the taller rides were closed at the beginning of the day, such as King Da Ka, the Skyline, Skyscreamer, Z
  20. Ogolo the thing is many people need the pass... for example I quite literally cant stand for 1 hour in a line... Yes I can, but once I start walking again my knee will buckle and give out every other step. And also I think its important to note the pass doesn't cut down the line time... it just means you can sit while you wait rather than standing for the time.
  21. I know the doctors note is required... im just curious how strict they are with the ADA part of it... I have never looked into ADA because my injury is supposedly non-permanent and should heal with the second round of Physical Therapy (lol PT didnt work first time... just made it worse...)
  22. I was wondering what the "actual" requirements for a Attraction Access Pass are... I would like to get one as I have bad knees and quite literally cant stand in a line. If I do, then my knees give out, click, lock, and basically stop working altogether. I wanted to get the pass so that I could still enjoy the park without my knees hurting. My issue is that the Park's site says that you need to have a note from a doctor saying its an ADA or state eligible injury. I don't have an ADA or state card for my injury but it is still severe... I am now starting a second round of Physical Therapy, they
  23. it was crazy. just leaving the parking lot took as long as most lines there lol.
  24. It was all in all a pretty good day at the park, the only down side is we probably spent more time in the car than in the park itself. Here is a basic run down of what we did using some estimating of times. Overview : The park was decently crowded yesterday, which took away form the experience a little bit. But I cant complain, because I went a Saturday night during fright fest. By the time we had gotten there, cars were being parked in the Hurricane Harbor parking lot. You would then have to walk back to the parks main gates. Once in the park, we had a good time and got on a decent amo
