Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I gotta give it to SFGAm ...I have not one clue about what it is Which is really bothering me...I don't know if I should get excited or what!!! Because if i get excited watch it be a kiddie area or something like that....But I don't know if it's a launch coaster, Sky screamer or a Giga coaster (which would make my dreams come true)...Hey let me dream okay!!!

Good point, I guess well have to see then. I would be shocked if they got a giga too especially with Sfmm's new coaster and the safari makeover going in next year.

 

What would Great Adventures safari have to do with us getting a giga? Besides, if we were getting a giga the park would have to get a permit and they are yet to apply for one. Don't expect anything over 125 feet.

The amount of money corporate would be spending on the parks in one year.

That video reminded me what the sounds of the Whizzer's lift does for me. Love it

 

I vote for sky skreamer swing thing. Hasn't Six Flags gotten a package deal on those? I haven't ridden any of those, but I rode 2 Wind Seekers and loved them. Of course the Cedar Fair parks giant swings have double the capacity :/

I havent posted on SFGAm thread in a while, let alone any thread on tpr

 

But everyones very excited about the new 2013 attraction.

 

Recently, about two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to meet two PR employees at six flags great america and ask them questions. Their names are Brandon Bruce and Katy Enrique. If you've been looking at the teasers Katys actually the lady with the blonde hair in the videos and

New SF Gold Pass next year! Free upgrade if you buy 4 or more passes and process at the park before 10/28! Free parking at SFGAm and all SF parks, daily early entrance! Payment plan and 4-pack discounts also discussed:

Assuming the free upgrade is only going to happen this year, I like it! Good way to get people hooked on it for future years and out for Fright Fest.

Brandon took us around for TPR's construction tour of X-Flight. All around good guy.

The park closed 3 hours earlier last night. Was supposed to be 9pm, but they closed at 6pm. We found this out as we came into the park at 5pm. There was a light rain on and off after 4pm; the storms cleared.

 

My friend spent 20 minutes on hold to be told by a Guest Relations representative that the park would "stay open until 9pm, rain or not." My friend Rob said the rep *insisted* they would NOT close prior to 9pm. So we drove up... blah blah blah.

 

Got home to find out they retro-edited the online park hours and changed the closing time to 6pm for yesterday. They did that a few weeks ago, too.

 

I mean, I can see closing an hour early, but 3 hours? They say "because of the rain" but what they really mean is "there aren't enough non-season pass holders in the park and we can't make any money." It's an integrity thing, it's getting old. "They're just season pass holders - we already have their money...." I don't like the way things are going. Like many regulars, I would rather pay $200 for a season pass and have a better run park.

 

There were still full trains going out on Raging Bull and Demon(!). Whizzer, Little Dipper, Ragin Cajun and other rides were closed.

 

However, the flash pass employees were still standing there, with nothing to do - not a soul in the queue. They say "they're employed by Flash Pass, not Six Flags" ... Yet, they sometimes try to assign seats; hold up the queue and let empty seats go when the lines ARE long. It's all a mess.

 

Money first, who cares about service. As much as I brag about and love my home park and coasters, this sort of thing gets old. I still love Great America, but sometimes I really wish Holiday World and Knoebel's were closer. The level of pure stupidity that six flags incorporates is sometimes hard to handle. And this is probably the best run park in the chain...

It rained all day. The sun didn't come out until close to 7:30. Closing three hours early is better than not opening at all, which they could/should have done considering the downpours for most of the morning.

 

Do some of you complain even when there's nothing to complain about???

The rain was on and off (at Six Flags Great America) when we were there starting at 5pm. It was a very light rain. Paying customers were riding rides and having a great time and the early close was a big disappointment to many of the people we came into contact with.

But it still really stinks. Especially after having being told specifically the park would stay open until 9pm an hour before the early closing was announced.

No.
