  1. we took your advice and got there for the open, it was -dead-. four laps on wicked cyclone and the kids never even had to move from the front row. kids did two laps on everything else they wanted to do (pandemonium, superman, batman, joker) and then a couple other rides and we were out of the by 1:30 when the rain went from drizzle to pretty heavy. a lot of bus groups showed up around 12:30, i think i counted over 20 in the parking lot when we left and it was pouring.. it was pretty miserable by 2:00 as we were driving away honestly, it was amazing lol.. if anything not having any waiting time between rides actually made my wife and i a bit woozy after a while, which doesn't usually happen. but we got more rides in 2 hours than we did last year in 8 hours
  2. thanks, we're coming from away but it's on our way to nyc.. i feel like if we can get 3 hours in it will have been worth it, especially with low crowds/waits.. park opens at 11, so with rain in the forecast they always open but might close at 2-3:00? or sometimes they can close even sooner after opening.. or not open at all? i guess that's less likely on a saturday?
  3. Hey everyone, was planning on going to the park Saturday, coming from pretty far away and it's really our only day.. but the forecast doesn't look great. Looks like rain off and on all day (0.5" total) and gusts up to 30mph. Should the park still open? Do they typically keep the coasters running if it's drizzling or lightly raining? There doesn't seem to be any thunderstorms forecast. I've been to parks that basically shut down if it rains.. and others that will shut rides down if it rains, but then start them back up asap when it stops. Just wondering what this place is like.. I don't mind riding in the rain, or rain delays.. just don't want to drive all that way if they're not even going to open, or run anything. Thanks!
  4. This may have been discussed before but I can't seem to find it, what's the deal with the bonzai pipelines? Someone at the park said the company that made them went bankrupt so now six flags can't get the parts it needs for annual maintenance. I noticed the drop slide at Great Escape was also closed this summer. I went in June, did the slides ever reopen? Is there any truth to what I was told? Seems kinda crazy
  5. Haha ok, if you had to put money on it, do you think it opens in 2023 at all?
  6. So anyone have any idea when the RMC'd Wildcat would open? How long do these types of projects typically take, like would Hershey be aiming for it to be up and running for the April opening in 2023?
  7. Park was dead Sunday, station wait for pretty much everything all day. Zumanjaro was closed and they said it hasn't opened this year yet but would open soon, anyone know what the problem was?
  8. Yeah last time I went was June 3rd, a monday, and it was still super busy.. so that's why I wasn't sure if some other time of the year might be quieter
  9. Thanks, and what does quiet mean at CP, how long of a wait for SV or MF? Assuming it's not some weird fluke of a day
  10. Hey everyone, so are there days at Cedar Point where it's legitimately dead? Last time I went was June 3rd, 2019 (Monday), I got FP+ for myself, kids were too little for all but the smallest coasters.. but even with FP+ I still had 45 minute waits on SV. Maybe it was because SV was still really new? Or a shitty merge point, I can't remember. It was also the day after bike week ended, I don't know if that affects crowds. But LOTS of people had FP+ Barring forecast for rain/storms that doesn't come true and keeps everyone away, is CP ever quiet where if you don't have FL+ you can have 30 minute NON-FP+ waits for SV and MF? Or is it just packed every day? I read about how Hersheypark is always packed, and I went last weekend.. and it was packed on the Saturday, 1-2hrs waits on any of the big coasters.. we didn't even bother with any of them and figured it would be better Sunday. And what a difference, Sunday we road the 5 big coasters 3-4 times each with barely any waits. Our goal was to just get on each one once, so it was a real pleasant surprise. Just wondering if days like that ever happen at CP, so I can try to aim for them Now that all my kids are 54"+, I can't afford to be forking out for 5 FP+ for the whole family, so I need to try and find the quietest possible time to visit
  11. Is skyrush back up and running normally this season? Just checked the app and skyrush, stormrunner and farenheit are all "closed" at the same time at 1:30pm on a saturday.. has there been a lot of downtime on these rides so far this season?
  12. Hey I'm actually in Canada now So back to easter, which is april 17 this year.. if it's the only weekend that works for us, what's the park like in mid april? are they short staffed? are all the big rides open? i know skyrush shut down last year for a bit, is it back to normal?
  13. Hey everyone, so who's been to HP a lot? It's an 8 hour drive for us so I want to go when it's not going to be nuts because who knows when I'll be able to go back. How is easter weekend? Is it pretty crazy Fri/Sat and then quiet Sunday morning, but then crazy in the afternoon? What about Labor Day weekend, is the weekend super jammed, but monday pretty quiet? Or what about other weekends in September? Can't go on weekdays, and summer seems like it's packed all the time, don't care about waterpark..
  14. Odd that they would continue to offer such a big perk when all US parks have gotten rid of it. Part of me wonders if it's a mistake on the website and it won't be honoured. Btw if you want laronde in english this is the link: https://www.sixflags.com/larondeen
  15. There's one exception that I know of, Laronde still states that 2022 season's passes are valid at all six flags locations, though it seems they removed the free parking.
  16. Lol that was so unnecessarily hostile.. my point was just making sure I'm not crazy, and observing that apparently not all six flags parks are doing this "home park only" thing
  17. Right IF you have your seasons pass, if your park isn't open yet, you don't have your passes. So if you want to go to another park that opens earlier, you need to email to get the letter. Unless you're saying that no longer works?
  18. is this different from before? every year i was told i could only pick up my passes at my home park, and every year i would visit a different six flags park that opened a couple months before mine. i just emailed my home park, told them where i was going and what dates, and they would send me a letter that i just had to print and show at the other park to get a day ticket.
  19. On the laronde site, when you choose to buy 2022 season passes, this is what you see, clearly indicating access to all parks. when you go to purchase, it's written "valid at all six flags parks". As far as laronde is concerned the only difference seems to be parking is no longer included for free?
  20. What season pass change are you talking about? As far as I can tell a season's pass at any six flags park includes access to all six flags parks? Though it looks like they removed the free parking
  21. Thanks! Is there a set date for when the east side closes in November? And if Jersey is open for HITP, does that mean it stays open until then all through November? Anyone know what the deal is with El Toro, I read a few pages back in the thread but it's mostly about JD
