Was a good day though some things went bad, other things went good. First day so I'll cut them slack, but the park's staff is very eager and friendly, park is extremely well cleaned and such. Just loading times were a bit slow and such. I got to meet some new good people and reunite with old friends. Also got to talk to Mark Kane and like always thank him for that and the great day!

I looked at that theming sign inside dark knight, and saw the web address and did a little exploring

 

If you go to http://www.gothamcab.com/ its an actual working website and there an actual working phone number. They say they are shutting down and they are not talking to the press, and thanks for contributing to their trial fund and then god bless. The number is on the site ( 1-877-530-CABS )

 

It seems that the web address was created in November 2007: http://who.godaddy.com/WhoIsVerify.aspx?do...prog_id=godaddy

El Toro - 11x

 

Great success!

 

You're a good photographer. Keep up the fine work.

 

I think the removal of Houdini is dumb as well. Six Flags claims to be trying to install more family attractions and they go and remove that. If they remove the parachute ride, that would be even worse.

Dude, that was a lot of pictures! It's sad that Old Country had to close, but hopefully they build something there. It didn't look like it was that crowded. Well anyway, I'm glad y'all had a good time. Thanks for the awesome pictures!

You got no idea how much that means to me dude, it is one of my hobbies now. Actually my personal favorite is this one that I took at the park yesterday, and it was not edited. All in my camera.

 

 

Used it as the header of my site, haha.

Awesome pics Josh. I was there as well and I had an amazing time. Though I must say, removing Houdini is a terrible mistake. I LOVED that ride and I rode it everytime I went to the park. Fly me to The Moon was kinda corny and I miss Spongebob! Great day though and Great trip report.

^Actually I found the Houdini at SFNE terrible compared to ours. You guys have a WAY better outside exterior and facade for sure, but the inside was the ugliest theming.

 

Six Flags Great Adventure's Houdini kills with our indoor theming, and when the ride is running with full effects, it is quite awesome. IMO.

Even though I haven't been to the park yet, I think it's pretty safe to say that El Toro's lift will remain the way it has since last season. It was great when it would heave you over the top of the hill, but it was causing maintenance problems with the turnaround into the first drop and the drop itself. I can live with the slowed lift since the ride still is full of that crazy ejector air all over the place.
