Sky Ride

Sky Ride (6/6)



  1. The Aquarium The Office or Community?
  2. Harry if you guys could ever get into the park every day like that it would be absolutely epic!
  3. The article can be found on http://www.dailyrecord.com Just an article I found today I thought some of you might be interested in. I am posting this from my blackberry at the moment so it is a little tough to insert the direct link. When I get in this evening I will update the direct link up top for everyone.
  4. This event just looks like it was a lot of fun to put on and I am sure all the kid that were around for it had quite a good time. Makes me long for the days when Bugs Bunny and the gang were all still on tv regularly. To be honest this shows that when Great Adventure really wants to go the extra mile they really know how to put on a celebration!
  5. This is bittersweet for me really overall. I know you all have been talking about this for quite some time, I guess for me it signifies two distinct times in my life in terms of coasters. When I was younger and I first saw my father and cousin go on the Scream Machine, I was in amazement. The ride was a monster, it had loops, it was freakishly tall (remember this is in the eyes of a young kid at the time and how I remember it), fast as could be, and it absolutely terrified me. Nothing at that time in my life was getting me on that ride, but at the same time seeing so many people ride it made me wonder if I could ever get myself to do a ride like that. Could I really handle all those loops and moving so fast? What if I got sick on the ride or what if I got so scared that I had to get off in front of everyone before the ride started? Sure my family was on it, but then again it was my father riding who in my eye at that time in my life could probably have conquered a ride twice that size with ease. Facing some of these questions in my life and the curiosity it piqued led me to enjoying a plethora of coasters at parks a I would get older. To me the Scream Machine also represented the second half of coaster in my life. By the time I began regularly patronizing Six Flags Great Adventure again in my 20's I had ridden such a wide variety of coasters that the ride no longer seemed that special. Sure I had ridden it here and there through the years, but while at the park there was alway something bigger and better to ride. I remember many more rides on Nitro, Medusa, B&R, Superman, and even Viper! Sure I would still get on the GASM, but it would only be at the end of my day as inevitably it would leave me with a headache only a few advil and the ride home could cure. Other days I would see no line at all, and yet till decide that I could simply ride it any other day, but I really wanted to do something else. And yet here it is gone now, and as I think about it as someone who has not been to the park in well over a year for various reasons, I realize that the next time I visit Great Adventure the structure which ultimately led to my willingness to ride so many rides and experience so many make and models of coasters, has vanished. It i a bit depressing to think about it, and I know once I am back at the park enjoying all the things I have missed out on in the lat year, whatever sits in the GASM' footprint will be enjoyable at least in the short term. But I guess taking some time reflecting on it, nothing in the park will probably every hold that same meaning for me a far as a ride goes.
  6. Yum Yum Palace Paddle Boat or Row Boat?
  7. To be honest, in my experience with some people, I'm no longer sure that even being on a wagon with an employee would be a factor, though maybe it would be getting to the ride that is the issue. My last experience with a hayride at the park was the complete debacle that saw the queue for the ride winding through the Batman Arena which became complete chaos, worse than anything I have seen with the Terror Trails.
  8. I was working at an old job while still in school actually back in 2007. Everyone but me was out of the office for the day (one unlucky soul needed to be in to answer any incoming phone calls while everyone else was in NY for a training seminar). My girlfriend and I had been at Fright Fest that year and something had happened at the park, but right now I can't remember it. I did a Google search with appropriate terms, and came to a forum posting from GAH as one of the search results. Once I had found something related I was looking at, I began to browse more of the site in general, especially the 1974 season tour spotlight and some more items. I continued to visit the site following that point and once the Holidays rolled around and the 2007 Great ADVENTure Calendar for 2007 was posted I was hooked coming back to the day to see more and learn more daily. It was December of 2007 that I signed up and began posting here and have been following, Harry, Tom, and everyone else's escapades since then.
  9. Just took my first ever cruise this summer at the end of June with one of the smaller RC ships, but If i go again the Oasis just looks amazing. Did you happen to see they have webcams from the Oasis' website online to check out what' going on live?
  10. Very true, but one can always be hopeful about getting one and unrealistic about being in the park as it snows!
  11. Unfortunately in the last few years too many ride have become a tight squeeze for me. But seeing as so many young kids are usually on this I can at least pretend that I don't fit on it simply because it's not built for me!
  12. Oh how I have missed this game. Learned more through research in playing this than I could have thought!
  13. Shows & Flats for sure Laser shooting gallery or bb shooting gallery?
  14. You need to do the dual camera method Harry. Pack away the good camera, but keep the smaller more compact one in the carry-on. Has saved some great photos numerous times I have found
  15. To be honest I would actually prefer to be able to walk around the park on a snowy winters night. Though to be fair Christmas just brings out the best in me each year and it's the holiday I look most forward to. If the park were to host a Christmas or Winter event I would be all over that regardless of how cold or inclement it became
