    Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?
  1. Sucks to see another bad review of the current state of the park. It was such a gem of a park when I used to go regularly 10-15 years ago. Has there been any noticeable decline in attendance? How do the locals keep going to this place it sounds completely miserable.
  2. Looks like Chris was spot on with the Venus SlydeTrap. Good to see this park making some positive moves forward.
  3. ^To be fair, normal elevator operating systems don't work too well after something like a conference lets out either. Agreed though, this new addition looks amazing. I hope it stays as a moderate priced resort. The prices for the new Riviera are scary high so good to see something new but more reasonable.
  4. Looks great. Love the drop on Storm Runner and this looks like it could be even better.
  5. October opening or not this looks really great. Tourists in NYC are either too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer and there's no indoor experience like this in the area. I think it'll be very successful. Glad that even though it took forever the final product looks to be quality.
  6. This looks like a great addition. Will be interesting to see the crowd difference between this and Skyrush. The few times I've been there since Skyrush was added it hasn't had a line out of the station by the afternoon. I expect this will be a lot more popular. As far as Wildcat, I think it's a fine ride but it's still the third best wood coaster at the park by a wide margin. Even if it was retracked it would probably still hold that position, so don't really see a need for that. RMC it if anything.
  7. Looks fun and there's no doubt it'll be very popular and successful. Still insane to think they just bulldozed two perfectly good B&M inverts though. Speaks to how much of a cash cow Potter really is for them. One question, is there no pre-show or backstory in the queue? I really thought this ride was going to tell a story. But you only see Hagrid, I assume in his hut, for 5 seconds? I'm not a Potter fan but I do like a ride that tells a good story.
  8. Was hoping to finally read some good news when I opened the thread but sounds like it's just more of the same. They clearly are incapable of operating this park, hopefully it gets out of their hands before it deteriorates beyond repair. I enjoyed going to this place just as much, if not more, than Hershey and Great Adventure when I was a kid. I don't understand how this level of incompetence finds its way to the forefront with some of these parks. It's a shame.
  9. Went to the park last Wednesday for the first time in almost 15 years, only repeat rides I did from that trip were X2 and Viper. The park has changed quite a bit... The good: -Tatsu was great, best flying coaster by a mile that I've been on. Same goes for Riddler regarding stand up coasters. -X2 is as great as I remember. I feel like it gets some hate in the community. I get it doesn't have airtime or laterals or whatever people are looking for, but it's some good old messed up fun. One of my favorite coasters anywhere. -Battle of Metropolis blows away any expectations I had for a Si
  10. This is sad and pathetic. Something tells me that the bolded part above is the only reason this plan fell through.
  11. I think you could save 4-5 hours in the car if you changed your route to a loop around Lake Eerie and Ontario; Detroit->Niagara->Toronto->Montreal->Lake George->Rochester->Waldameer->Detroit. I get you probably don't wanna do Wonderland on a weekend but a Sunday/Monday shouldn't be terrible. Do something like: Friday: Drive to Niagara through Ontario Saturday: Marineland/Niagara Falls Sunday: Canada's Wonderland Monday: Canada's Wonderland Tuesday: Drive/Montreal/La Ronde Wednesday: La Ronde Thursday: Great Escape Friday: Seabreeze/Darien Lake Saturday: Waldame
  12. As you said they don't provide this data, so all I'm saying is anecdotal evidence is all there is for me to go off of. And in my case that evidence would prove your assumption isn't safe to say. Don't think that's completely ridiculous of me.
  13. When you say something like "I don't have any data but I doubt anyone is only going to DCA..." what the hell are you expecting someone to come back with except for anecdotal evidence haha. That's a really good point in terms of multi day tickets, hotels, and increased AP prices. And Carsland was a huge success no denying that. But nothing else has been. The Little Mermaid and Paradise Pier particularly, but even GotG. Attendance has not been growing every year since Carsland that just isn't true. It has been completely stagnant for 3 years now from 2015-2017, and there's no good reaso
  14. DCA isn't competing against Disneyland, though. If that 2:1 figure is because everyone who was going to get a 2-day ticket to Disneyland is now getting a 3-day ticket and spending the additional day at DCA, I'd think they would be pretty happy about that. Obviously I don't have granular data like that, but I think it's safe to say that no one is going to DCA and not to Disneyland. So the expectation should be that DCA will have a fraction of the attendance Disneyland does. The way to get that closer to parity is by pushing Park Hopper and Maxpass and thereby encouraging people to treat the
  15. I didn't make any reference to opening only one ride. Of course they shouldn't have the entire land sitting vacant. The fact that DCA is the 13th busiest park doesn't prove its success. Obviously different parks have different expectations. Every other US Disney park is in the top 10. Disneyland has twice the annual attendance as DCA. ^Good point about the Marvel expansion tho, that should hopefully help.
