The park built new infrastructure backstage to support the GITPP so that definitely figured into it. there is a new maintenance shed back there under nitro by the firehouse. plus the costumes, and electronics for the floats, it had a lot of upfront costs. the staff was not an issue because it pulled all of the day shift entertainment crew that was already there, like the Costume characters and handlers. Same with security. so i think less money will be needed for the parade, which means more for new rides.

People complained about El Toro ("it should be longer", "it should have been in the woods", etc.), and that is a nearly perfect coaster just as it is.

 

I can only imagine the reactions if it turns out the only new things for next season are (just as an example) a Tornado slide for HH and a new float for Glow in the Park.

 

 

and Medusa 2.0 15.jpg

 

 

and whatever this is

9-2.jpg

The paint on the supports of Medusa is chipping, so I see a new paint job in their future as well. That was a good close up of the blue track.

As for the Movietown section, I'd like to see a coaster of some sort utilize the scenery offered by Chiller's old tower; that always intrigued me.

I agree that people will always find something to complain about. Proof is in the words... I just can't imagine complaining about anything when it comes to El Toro. I am a steel coaster fan, mostly because I love the inversions, but El Toro, that blew my mind. That was the best wooden coaster I have been on. Kwazee in Busch Gardens, Tampa is an awesome wooden coaster too, but El Toro blew it away. like someone else said...you just can't please everybody. Bottom line, GA is an awesome park with great rides and thats that!!! Thanks for listening. Happy coastering everyone!!!

hey think about it this way. In the summer, when it's warm out people see and indoor attraction and figure we should get out of the sun. No matter what's in the simulator it's gonna be packed in those conditions. The real test is how many go back to see it multiple times.
