  1. They did briefly use it for 1 season when they charged separate entry for the watermark. 2010 i believe.
  2. Looks like it will be almost identical to the one they built at Splashtown in Houston this year.
  3. I went to SFNE's the other weekend....generally I found it to be awful. The decorations and a Haunted house were pretty meh, and the actors weren't fantastic. The worst part though was the crowds, the number of people and lines everywhere really ruin the experience for me.
  4. I noticed this, I wonder why. Maybe something to do with it getting too hot in there, or firecode occupancy in the line?
  5. I had a couple hours to kill sunday after arriving into Atlanta for work, so I decided to make a quick trip to SFOG. Holy hell the park was packed, with every ride having basically a 1 hr+ line. I will say walking in under Goliath and next to Georgia Scorcher is pretty cool. I got in line for TC knowing that would be the only ride I had time for. It ended up breaking down part way through line. Though nearly everyone got out of line, and I was able to be the 2nd train when it re-opened 20 minutes later. TC is a pretty fast paced ride, very fun though of the 3 i've ridden (WC and SV) I would rank it 3rd. WC seems to pull you out of your seat way more, and a slower more hangtimey moments.
  6. Six Flags (aka literally the whole company) has a market cap of $4.36b.
  7. So did anything hear anything from the town meeting about a new waterpark attraction?
  8. Not sure the credibility, but someone on Reddit is claiming to know all the SF additions. Said Darien Lake will get a few small rides.
  9. Anyone have experience with camping near SFGADV? Last year I camped at the Timberland Lake campground. While close the to the park, it was an expensive trash-heap of a campground. The state and county campgrounds look decent, but they say "no alcohol". Camping isnt camping without having a beer around a campfire. It doesn't seem like there are any good options?
  10. Not sure the reasoning for it, but its not that uncommon for the drop water to be off.
  11. This was only for part of the 2016 season. I dont even think SF did any rides this year with VR at any parks. I'd say they may have learned their lesson with it.
  12. Probably not, Darien Lake is operated under a triple net lease. This means the operator pays for all capital expenditures in exchange for low rent payments. This is similar to SFOG and SFOT.
  13. The park theoretically could become bigger. The small market argument is pretty worthless, when you consider the locations of parks like CP, Dollywood, SDC, and SFNE. All parks in small market, with larger markets in a 2+ hour radius. The best thing Darien Lake has going for it is the onsite hotel and campground which turn it into a destination for people from the Golden Horshoe, Buffalo-Niagara, Rochester, and Syracuse metros. Is this likely, probably not. But saying Darien Lake can only stay a mediocre regional park isn't true either.
