  1. I wouldn't really say they have bad coasters outside of Anaconda, but the rest are just sort of ..meh like middle of the road, nothing crazy but nothing amazing either. Avalanche is at least unique but not super thrilling, and the Racer feels generic along with the wild mouse clone. And I don't really count the kid coasters because they are what they are supposed to be. Even adding a 4D free spin wont really make this collection much better. That reminds me of Six Flags New England, they have 2 solid coasters and then fall off the map. Batman and Thunderbolt are the next tier
  2. As much as I like Kings Dominion, ever since removing Volcano they only have 3 real standouts now (i305, Dominator and Twisted Timbers), Outer Limits is good but its a clone technically and can be a little rough at times, the rest are mediocre at best, nothing real terrible (except maybe Anaconda) but nothing amazing, especially when Busch Gardens kills it down the road from them.
  3. https://www.syracuse.com/coronavirus/2021/02/ny-amusement-parks-can-reopen-overnight-summer-camps-can-plan-to-cuomo-says.html New York is finally allowing amusement parks to re-open, they are capping them at 33% capacity which seems like what Disney was attempting. I for one am just glad they finally came to their senses and are allowing these outdoor businesses to return. Hopefully Six Flags Members will be able to select dates to reserve since they are requiring pre sold tickets as part of re-opening.
  4. I would love for them to get a Mack Mega coaster like Alpina Blitz at Nigloland, I know it would most likely never happen but something similar in place of Bobsled would be a good size fit for the park. Unfortunately the price would most likely be out of the Six Flags budget especially now. I did hear they may bring back the ride share program which maybe means they bring in a mid level ride from a bigger park to infuse a little excitement for a smaller park like Great Escape. I would be fine with that honestly, at least its something different,
  5. Well then i,m not sure why they have such trouble running it, seems like it is constantly down, I have been on it in years past but most of the time it seems like it breaks down. As much as I enjoy the ride i could still see it leaving, the only reason they wouldn't i could see would be its not a big plot of land that it sits on compared to the space removing the ferris wheel could open up
  6. If it isn't the Ferris Wheel being removed, my next guess would be the Condor Ride, It is always breaking down or never running to begin with. in 2019 I was on it and it got going, but before it could start going up it shut down. It is also a ride that i don't believe parts are made for anymore which can also make it expensive to operate. I don't see them removing the Bobsleds unless it was to be replaced with a new coaster as the park already only has 5 major coasters. Most other rides in the park seem safe as they are for the most part well maintained and ridden.
  7. I had that happen a couple of times, but they generally kept a space between so it wasn't an issue, I don't really mind anyways
  8. When I was there the week after the 4th they were doing every row, one party per row, same for Great Bear. Most others were seating every other row like Comet, Lightning Racer etc. Cupfusion was doing one party per car as well.
  9. Visited the park for day 1 of our camping trip and was pretty impressed given the situation of things. Originally we weren't visiting Hershey this year but our other plans got scrapped so this was a nice alternative. First off the Campground has been great like always and they are doing a great job with COVID precautions (pool cleanings, limited people in the store etc) and it's pretty vacant compared to last year, we are virtually alone on our side of the park it's awesome. As for the park we did the sweet start which gave me a chance to check out Candymonium. I would say it's a solid ri
  10. NY has the most cases and deaths by 2x. What are you talking about "contained"? Im talking as in keeping it from spreading more, yes at first it was bad (mostly because of NYC) but ever since it has been going down and staying down unlike other states that opened early and are now seeing the backlash of what that caused. Compared to those states NY is in a much better position now to re-open
  11. More than likely it's just maintenance issues that normally would be addressed in the off-season but due to COVID they most likely weren't able to finish the work and/or parts couldn't make it to America from wherever they are coming from. It's a shame and SooperDooper is my daughter's favorite but we will still enjoy our visit this year just the same. And Kissing Tower is also closed which is no surprise due to the broken window and the fact it's probably a bad idea to run it with Social Distancing and all.
  12. There's no reason the amusement parks of NY can't be open in phase 4. NY has been one of the best states in keeping COVID contained and the vast majority have no issues with masks. Not to mention your outdoors in the fresh air. Leave it to Cuomo to change the game again.
  13. If you're looking for how one area is re-opening now check out this video from the Carpetbagger, he visited Pigeon Forges's Island attraction and they are actually running rides including the giant Wheel. It proves it can be done.
  14. I'm not trying to make this political since this is a theme park site but keeping America locked down is not the answer. Waiting for a vaccine is not the answer either(we may never get a vaccine). We have to just be smart about things and let people work for their living instead of paying people $600 extra dollars while unemployed. I'm a work in a local jail and still am expected to work day in and day out but get no compensation for being deemed "essential". Why are the Targets and Walmarts allowed to stay open when the mom and pop stores have to close? Why are they so different that the
  15. At this point a new location elsewhere in the park seems like a better alternative and a new theme if they were to do that. It seems strange that they would try to put such a tall ride in the highest elevated section of the park in the first place. Not sure how they will shoe horn this into that space, it will also be sad if they have to remove some of the themed buildings just to fit it in.
