    I Guess Donkeys Are Okay

  1. I saw on the Cedar point website they are hosting an event coaster mania on June 6. I am hoping someone can tell me how this event works and overall how was the experience. The information on the website seems a little contradictory. Information says you must be a member of a roller coaster club in order to gain access to the park or be with someone who is a member. Season pass holders can also get in but they do not have to pay. This would lead me to believe that this is closed to the public but they offer ERT. I am not sure why they would offer ERT at the park if it is only open to r
  2. Paladin - Thx for the info. After checking out the hours. I think BG on Friday and KD on Saturday. I know you suggested the opposite but our main purpose is the coasters. With that said KD is open 4 hrs longer on sat than on Friday. Even if the lines are longer i think we will get more rides in. Also BG is open longer on Friday than KD is. So for the maximum time in the parks I think this is the way to go. One more question. I cannot seem to find discount tickets for BG anywhere. Website has them at $72 each. That is steep. That would be about $230.00 for tickets
  3. Any suggestions on which park would be better to stay longer at? Both parks have good selection of coasters. Haven't been to either park before.
  4. Well I was hoping it wouldn't be hugely crowded but guess that is not case. I was there a few years ago for a few days one of them being the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. It wasn't horrible - lines were about an hour for MF and maverick. Most other rides were about 45 min. I was hoping because it was earlier in the year it wouldn't be too busy. Maybe I should try going mid week. I don't think that will be an option though
  5. I am hoping someone can help me this. I am thinking about a 2 day trip where I could spend a day at KD and a day a BG. This would be on a Friday and Saturday. What kind of crowds can I expect? What park would be best to visit on what day. Thanks
  6. What kind of crowds can be expected in may? I was thinking of taking a 2 day trip on a Friday and Saturday. The dates would be the 15th and 16th. This would be the 2nd operating weekend of the year. this would also be a week before Memorial Day weekend. I know mid week would be better but that is not an option. Anyone know what the crowds should be like?
  7. According Cedar Point, the last two weeks of August is considered their off peak season. (aug 19th - on) I heard in the peak of summer lines could get as long as 3 - 4 hours. Does this mean that during the summer of off season the lines will be down to about a 2 hour wait ? Not exactily what I would consider off season wait times. Would it be worth going in August or should I just wait until Next May? I would be going mid week Tues, Wed, and Thursday. Any advice you guys could share would be great. Thanks
  8. Steve - you have some awesome parks lined up. June would be less crowded than July, but if you could pull this off, I would try and go during beginning to mid weeks of May. Great adventure is open during the week and most things should be just about a walk on or at the worst - 30 min wait. You will not need to invest in flash pass. I don't know if Hershey and Dorney should be open during the week but weekends shouldn't be too busy this time of year either. I went to Cedar point for 3 days this past year. I went on wed, Thurs, and Friday before Memorial day Weekend. (last weekend in
  9. Thanks for your help. Does anyone know where to get discount tickets for KIngs Dominion or Busch Gardens?
  10. I cannot speak to of too many parks but I seriously doubt you will have a problem at Great Adventure on a Monday. Even if schools have trips there, buses tend to leave between 4pm - 6pm. We go there alot and have been there mid week in June and never a problem. 30 min or less waiting time. I would be shocked if you need to invest in the Flash Pass. I know you set your schedule but Hershey and Dorney are only about an hr apart. If you could adjust, try to do Hershey on Monday and Dorney on Sunday. Dorney is usually less crowded than Hershey. Especially with skyrush coming to He
  11. I thought about taking a vacation during spring break down to Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens VA. How crowded can I expect these parks to be during the week? Is this a good time to go or should I try to go during the week in May? How many days should I plan at each park? Any other suggestions for Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens would be greatly appreciated. Mike
  12. Now that Great Adventure is closed until at least March, I was wondering if there were any indoor water parks in the NY, NJ or PA area that could be worth visiting on a day over the weekend. Geography wise, I'm about 3 hrs from hershey, 2.5 from Great adventure and Dorney park.
  13. Unfortunately I do not know of any hotels in the area but I don't know if you ever visited SFGADV and thought I would give you some tips to enjoy your visit: INVEST IN FLASH PASS. Summer time is EXTREMELY BUSY. You could be waiting 3 hrs for rides. There are a few different options. I think the most expensive flash pass lets you ride twice in a row without having to get off the ride. I wuold at least buy the flash pass so you can skip the line. Try and hit El Toro early. If you are lucky you may get some rides in where the line could be an hr or less. I would save the flash pass
  14. I started a new topic since not only will there be an update from the original post regarding management but a trip report as well. Unfortunately I do not have any photos to share. From the original post, I had made some negative comments I had regarding my season pass and some other issues...well here is the update and the trip report: THE GOOD: The day started with me going right up to guest relations trying to get my season pass problem taken care of. In case you didn't read the original post, in short, I was entitled to 20% off of this years pass but by the time they figured th
  15. This post is going to be somewhat negative and I hope I'm not breaking any rules or guidelines and hope this post doesn't get deleted. These are my opinions and honestly hope that maybe some good will come out of this, maybe if enough people state similar problems maybe someone will get these simple things corrected. I personally do not know who is doing the better job. I do know, the park needs help in the management dept. I'm not sure what the problems are or why they are happening but I think they are minor which could be easily be fixed which will leave a much better impression on
