  1. I always liked the gold season pass with the season dining pass. That way it was paid for the season. I thought maybe the dining pass was balanced out with those who used it 30+ times a season and others who bought it and used it one or two days a season but I guess they were losing a lot of money with the frequent users.
  2. It’s always good to see more family attractions added to Atlantic City. After Tivoli Pier closed in the mid 90s, there has never been that much to do especially during the colder months if you are under 21 or don’t want to gamble.
  3. Journey To Atlantis (Orlando) is having it's track replaced. https://www.importgenius.com/suppliers/mack-rides-gmbh-co-kg Credit to AvocadoToastDevil on Reddit for finding it.
  4. It was always sad the last weekend of the season in October or early November knowing there was around 5 months of no park visits and coasters. A 3 month offseason wasn’t so bad to deal with.
  5. Ice Breaker opens on February 18th. Annual Pass Previews begin on January 30th - 31st for Platinum Pass Holders.
  6. Busch Gardens Tampa has them. I like how they change the design for the different seasons. Besides the usual animals, they had Halloween ones and now have Christmas and Winter designs.
  7. I went to Sea World with my parents 3 weeks ago since I still had free guest tickets left with my annual pass. This was their first visit since 2004 and I wasn't going to focus on just rides this trip. Journey To Atlantis is really well done. It's a fun combination of a flume ride and a coaster. I wish I could have ridden the original version with the storyline. I know it's probably unlikely but I never got to try the Antarctica ride and even though I heard it wasn't that great, as a fan of dark rides I'm sure it would still be worth going to on most trips to the park. With the Sky Ride at Busch Gardens reopening next summer, maybe this will reopen too. Besides seeing many of the aquariums, we saw Orca Encounter and the Sea Lion & Otter Spotlight which was new for me. Mako had a 55 minute posted wait with 1 train running. I saw they were putting on a 2nd train and decided to go back later. This was the right decision as it was a station wait at night. Mako is my favorite coaster in Florida and my 3rd favorite steel coaster right after Nitro. It is smooth with a lot of floater air time and just the right about of forcefulness for me. The Sea of Trees was really cool and overall the whole park was really decorated well with lights everywhere. We stayed at the park for 7 hours and still didn't see everything like the dolphin show and Turtle Trek. There was supposed to be a free holiday ornament but because of a shipping delay, they weren't available yet. Most parks would just say come back later but Sea World offered $5 in Sea World bucks to make up for the delay which was nice and unexpected. Sea World is a great park. Some fun coasters, aquariums, animal exhibits and shows. I look forward to visiting again next month. Kraken was closed for repainting. For some reason, I was sometimes having trouble paying attention to the show. Something kept distracting me.
  8. When I was a 2 1/2 hour drive from the park, I would have planned a trip once or twice a year where I stayed at a hotel on-site and went to the park 2 days in a row. An indoor water park would be great especially with how short the outdoor water park season is in the area.
  9. I rarely play games in the parks anymore because I have no interest in a stuffed animal but would try a game if the prize was something themed to a ride I like. I also liked how at the arcade in Hersheypark, you could redeem your tickets for souvenirs like mugs and glasses that were once sold in the gift shops rather than just the standard arcade prizes of smaller toys and candy up to expensive electronics that would take years to earn enough tickets to redeem for.
  10. Great pictures I like that Ferris wheel planter and how open the Yum Yum Cafe interior looks
  11. My favorite effect was the hologram billboards that looked like clowns were going to attack that unfortunately only worked for a few years after the ride opened. I was never disappointed with TDK maybe because I knew it was going to be an indoor wild mouse and not a thrill coaster. I liked it along with Skull Mountain when I want to take a break from the larger coasters.
  12. I have 3 albums of them from the parks I have visited with some from Great Adventure. It’s always fun to walk around the park and see if there is a new penny that you want to add to your collection.
  13. In addition to new theme elements, I'd like to see all of the theming and props that are no longer lit up, being visible again like the Tiki masks and the 2nd pumpkin in the middle of the ride.
  14. I also miss Glow in the Park. I thought it was very well done for a regional park and that you could show up a few minutes before the parade start time and get a great viewing spot.
