  1. After 12, the park is a ghost town during haunt. 1am closes were the dumbest things. As dumb as when they closed at midnight on sundays during haunt. Park was empty by 8 and you'd stand around the rest of the night. 8pm closes end of May and beginning of June. Two years ago I believe it was 6pm or 7pm. 9pm closes in june are kind of smart though since you still wont have the summer rush just yet.
  2. I dont think this is the same slide as you are talking about, but i know this one had a little airtime hump towards the bottom of the slide. [twitter] [/twitter]
  3. Kind of on the fence about this. Cool to see it have a 'big' owner but as Robb has said, having a corporation own it, could kill this place off. I feel like this place is something that you dont need to market, but just let word of mouth do the marketing. I was taught that word of mouth is the best marketing for business. I told everyone in my family about city museum after the tpr trip in 2017. This is completely necessary though. When this is one of the slides there, you need those restrictions.
  4. Awesome report bill! I always enjoy going to herhseys Christmas event. I usually see this all the time when I visit the park. Two summers ago, i remember seeing the games employees at their 3 point game acting like they were zombies, and this was only in June. I've experienced better employees at six flags than I have at Hershey.
  5. Not sure if this means anything in regards to the exact position. If it does then well more Planet Snoopy stuff, yay for those with children. But CGAs marker is outside the front gate which makes me think the coordinates are not exact. Digression if it's not a Planet Snoopy expansion my guess would be some kind of flat.............or nothing since it's November and both of these parks just opened Twisted Timbers and Railblazer. Cant wait to see Dorney park teasers pop up at.... Geauga Lake. They could be doing some type of hinting, but then again, it is november.
  6. Candy canes, elfa, snowman, gingerbread man? Not really Halloween and haunt theme.
  7. I live not even 5 minutes from bushkill park. 2004, 2005 and 2006, the park saw flood after flood after flood. It used to be an extremely smaller version of knoebels. The red line in the photo shows you just how high the water was in 2004. The park never really recovered ever since then. The owner has finally started trying to get things back up and running. Last summer, the park opened for one day as a little benefit day to help raise money for the park. About 3,000 people attended. Bar'l of fun was always so much fun. So many memories from there. check this article out from last summer.
  8. My guess would be the would cut the midway at the restroom and auntie annes, and then the hill that goes down near hydras cobra roll. That would leave them the troika, dodgem, wave swinger, wild mouse, meteor, the train and the carrousel. Plus all of Planet Snoopy. They could push to have the ferris wheel open. If they dont have staffing in the summer for rides, doubt theyll have/want to staff anything past the hills.
  9. Told me traffic was stand still. Apparently attendance that day was upward of 75,000. I'd imagine when you have cars parked any possible spot they could, it would take hours.
  10. I always told past friends that i would never go to Knoebels because i thought it wasnt going to be a park i liked or would enjoy. I was completely wrong this summer when i visited for the first time. Such an amazing park.
  11. Didnt work in rides, but in games at Dorney, with midnight closes, leaving work between 1:30-2am getting home 30 minutes later, then having to get up at 7 to be back at the park before 9 was awful. Dunkin becomes your best friend on those days. One of my former managers at Dorney, used to help out at Cedar Point during haunt. He told me about the time he worked maverick on the parks busiest day in history. He said the park closed at 12, with a three hour wait. Ride closed at 3, took an hour to transfer all the trains off. he was stuck in traffic until 7am when he finally got back to his apartment on the other side of the causeway and had to be back at work by 8am.
  12. Its as fake as Kim Kardashian's body. Not to nick pick at things, but they could of done a better job of at least trying to get the light blue bar to match to the actual website. FWIW, I could not find anything that showed Dorney nor Cedar Fair filing anything with the FAA.
  13. Apple picking Corn mazes Not sure what else you might be interested in, but Camelback mountain has a pretty cool mountain coaster and slide, and zip lining. Camelback Adventures You can ride the mountain coaster and zip line in the dark and be scared by monsters.
  14. The park has a ton of space to work with in that area. The only thing is how close banshee does get to the old station. Its a food for thought.
  15. Wait wait wait..... Weren't there teasers about outpost 5, son of beast old station? Could it possibly be The Bat, and then reuse son of beast old station and all the land that the bat takes up for the new coaster?
  16. Loved the maintainance team when I was working at the park! Especially the electricians/game techs! People I know who still work at the park have told me that Zimmerman doesnt like relocating rides.
  17. According to the last bit on the sign, they don't. Well that is new for this season. About time they do that. But also...
  18. I hate the no boos. I get they are an easy money maker, but they shouldn't allow them in the mazes.
  19. Traffic is gonna be like opening the gates of Hell. I'm both excited and want to kill myself at the same time. hopefully NJ Transit has a train running to the meadowlands more than just for giants and jets games when it opens.
