  1. I had an awesome day at Jersey Devil previews! I got to ride 11 times throughout the day, really great considering that there was some extended downtime at times during the day. The back was incredible for airtime, and I definitely felt more hangtime toward the front. While it ran really slow after the MCBR early on, it got a lot faster and better as the coaster warmed up. I could say that in general about the entire experience! I can’t wait to go to media day tomorrow and get more rides, this is easily a top 3 coaster at the park for me. Stop me if you see me and say hi! I’ll be wearing an El Diablo shirt
  2. So excited to be there for opening day! Lots of cool additions to compliment JD. Glad we're getting some different food options too
  3. Jersey Devil BBQ coming to the building that used to be Casa de Quesadilla (Nitro Grill) across from Congo Rapids. New Smokehouse near Dare Devil Dive and the Carousel, too. That might be something like what we see Rita's becomes during HITP.
  4. Awesome! I was there opening day and this past Sunday, it was an awesome park! I've only been 3 times ever with my first visit being last year, but the park is so much better than its reputation! I was able to get a ton of rides on Superman, I had a blast!
  5. This cool Facebook post on the Great Adventure Connoisseurs page reminded me that on this day in 1993, Traffic Jam’s roof collapsed from a blizzard!
  6. This was the first major coaster I worked in my time at the park, this was a fun one to work!
  7. There’s a chance! Still a ton more to go into the ride after track is finished. Queue/station construction, programming, testing and training for crews. Probably more likely that it opens after opening day, but still possible!
  8. So it looks like the drive thru safari really helped them maintain/boost single day ticket sales. I can see the drive thru lasting a little longer than expected because of that. I wonder too what parks they're talking about when they mention investing with new rides in "markets with high growth potential".
  9. I’ve been able to use my 2 meals and snack whenever I wanted through the app during HITP. Sometimes I’ve even used both my meals at the same time.
  10. I was lucky enough to get a group of visits in at GAdv this weekend after my plans to visit Friday were cancelled because of the snow. However, walking in the park Saturday made it seem like they didn't make too much progress. I almost felt like I should've brought ice skates with me! I was just happy to be at the park! Not only was this weekend amazing for the surprise opening of Cyborg, but I also hit my 50th overall visit to the park this season today (12/20)! Considering all of the hardships this year has brought for all of us, and some personal ones too, I'm so thankful that I could go and enjoy the park as frequently as I do! I got to be on the 2 very first public cycles of Cyborg this year on Saturday, and unfortunately both ended in being stuck on the ride for about 10 minutes each time. A lot of people on the ground looked terrified for my friends and I, but we actually had a blast up there! Against our better judgement, we decided to try riding it one more time about an hour after the second time being stuck and were able to get a full, normal ride. Even on the cycles where we got stuck, we noticed that Cyborg's new motor made the ride run smoother than before and it almost felt like we were getting more flips and unique cycles. A lot of the community members rip on it, but I'm glad it was able to open! I rode another time today, this time another full cycle without any stoppage. Overall, very light crowds this weekend. I guess we can thank icy conditions and projected rain that never came for that. Some rides couldn't handle the cold yesterday, but today was a lot better with more rides being able to open and stay consistently operational for most of the day. I got a lot of cool opportunities between lights-on rides for Skull Mountain, a trimless ride on Nitro, the first public rides of the season for Cyborg and completely pitch-black rides on Dark Knight (no effects were on whatsoever). This is definitely not the last time I'll be braving the cold to go enjoy the rides. It will be interesting to see how many more visits I can get and what my ride and food totals come out to (call me crazy, but yes I'm keeping track )! I've attached some of my best pictures which showcased the snowy conditions at the park. My ride totals across the two visits: Justice League 7x, Skull Mountain 6x, Nitro 4x, Cyborg 4x, Dark Knight 3x, Wonder Woman 2x, Joker 1x, Harley Quinn 1x, Sky Way 1x
  11. Absolutely! Glad I could use this assignment for something beyond a grade.
  12. Hey everyone! This last semester I took an Electronic Media Production class at my University, and our final assignment was to make a video project about any topic we chose. Of course it seemed like Great Adventure would be a perfect topic for me and something that would be really easy and fun to talk about. We were limited to about 2 minutes, but after this assignment I feel like I could make a whole series! Covid has impacted so much, and it was certainly interesting to do so many of my college classes online. I decided a nice tie-in to make the assignment topical was to discuss how GAdv was handling safety protocols. I decided to call the short "Do the Six at Great Adventure". The goal of the production was to tell a story and use different shot-placement and interview techniques. I hope you all enjoy it, and I'll update everyone when I have a grade back for it! 1870614436_DoTheSixatGreatAdventure(COMM324FinalProd.).mp4
  13. Yep! I’m pretty sure Right Stuff is on HBO Max, but it’s funny to have to get up mid movie and change the tape. With Right Stuff and Unforgiven, I have a little GA-inspired collection going!
  14. So sad to hear. Crazy, I just watched my Right Stuff VHS copy the other day!
