Recommended Posts

Over the past several years many water attraction were closed and removed. Is Great Adventure Park going anti-water? Are they trying to keep all the water rides in Hurricane Harbor? If so what ride is next, or are they done removing?

 

2005- Koala Canyon closed

2006- Riptide was removed

2007- Movietown Water Effect was removed

2008- Michigan J. Frog's Fun Flotilla and Yosemite Sam's Flight School were removed, both rides sat in water.

2009- ?????????? Hope its nothing.

JUST HAD A BRILLIANT IDEA! For 2009, entirely enclose the rapids and it's queue and turn it into a Looney Tunes themed raft ride, VERY similar to the boat ride at SFOT. The queue would be an"underwater tunnel to the loading station for rafts to go down the Mighty' Missispppisisiisi(purposely misspelled) where Yosemite Sam is sailing away with stolen money. Along the way, you see wanted posters, news articles, and even newsreels, along with favorite Looney Tunes cartoons. the ride would basically follow SFOT plot, but at the end, there would be a gun fight between Bugs and Yosemite in a whiskey factory, where gunshots have riddled the wholes of many barrels squirting rider and these will act as water falls. The ride would then end like SFOT's and guest would exit , not right by Nitro, but into another tunnel leading back to WB Studios(AKA Movietown) and leave you off where Batman's photo booth used to be.

I love this idea!!

 

Heres something that worries me, is Six Flags going to sell out and advertise crap on all there coasters?

 

Unfortunately they'll take literally whatever money they can get, and do whatever the company wants, no matter how intrusive to the park experience (remember the Nokia ad in the middle of the Dark Knight preshow?). We're lucky we don't have a Geico banner hanging on one of our coaster's supports like most other parks do.

If it gets them out of debt, I'm all for it.

It must not be Haredevil Hare (the worst Bugs Bunny cartoon on the face of the Earth).

Is the poison ivy in the queue area or are you just seeing it on the banks of the "river"?

 

 

Both and on the exit steps, they really should spary it to get rid of it. For you city folk poison ivy can quicky overgrow an area and choke out other plants and it produces a oil that will give you a nasty itchy rash that spreads if you scratch it. It likes to grow in the shade and the only way to get rid of it without getting a rash is to spray it with plant killer.
