  1. Guests at Great Adventure have so many places where they could throw things at trains. The exit to Dark Knight runs parallel to a section of track. If someone wanted to they could easily throw something when a train was passing. Superman: Ultimate Flight's queue runs entirely underneath the ride and the first drop comes very close to the path. It's not really easy, but someone could do it. The entrance to Bizarro in the center of the cobra roll is pretty much begging for someone to throw something at it. And out of all of the rides that are easy to throw stuff on, the one time it occurs is when someone throws change while on El Toro.


    The way I look at it, anyone who knows anything about rides and safety isn't going to throw anything because we aren't stupid. The people that don't know about ride safety would be too scared to throw something at a ride because they don't know what might happen. Movies like Final Destination 3 lead people to believe that a video camera could derail a speeding, multi-ton train. The amount of people who believe this stuff is incredible, which is why it doesn't happen. I'd be willing to bet that people who would throw something are turned off by the idea of something breaking and people getting hurt or killed, but most likely people getting hurt. As specific as my idea was, even the "coolest" kids don't want to hurt someone.

  2. Not sure if this is the right place to ask considering I sort of have a trip planning thead elsewhere on the forum, but here is probably my best shot.


    We currently have Tuesday 26th May planned as our Six Flags Great Adventure day, but we also plan to come back the following morning before driving on to Dorney Park. I'm concerned that this won't be enough time to see the whole park and/or get rerides on the better coasters. I should say we're not too fussed about missing out on the flats...


    Any thoughts? Do we need a second full day? Time is kind of tight at this end of our trip and I'm not sure I'd want to sacrifice time at Dorney, Knoebels or Hershey.


    You don't need a second day. Even on the most crowded day I've ever seen I was still able to ride all of the coasters at least once. Green Lantern and Superman are going to have absolutely ridiculous lines all day, so try to hit them in the evening. Start with El Toro and then just do whatever you want to really. I usually do El Toro and Bizarro and then head over to Nitro, Batman, Skull Mountain, Dark Knight, eat over there, then head back and get to what I haven't yet. I'd only go the second day if you miss El Toro or Nitro.
