it sure is not WDS or universal, but it sure is a park that is also visited by other states and continents. so I would say that is not a regional park

as well as cedar point or sfmm

^ You could say that about any amusement park anywhere because I can guarantee they've all been visited by a few people that aren't locals at some point in time. Doesn't change the fact that they're regional, non-resort destinations. Would you consider Luna Park at Coney Island a non-regional park? I sure wouldn't, even though it gets a ton of tourist traffic.

The idea I would pitch is that Great Adventure and Wawa go into business together. The Old Country becomes "Wawa World" with a giant Wawa being the centerpiece. From there you can base your attractions around it such as "The Wawa Tour" ala Hershey's factory tour. ;)

It was revealed that a second bar (beer and wine) will open in the park next to Sky Screamer, it will be called Sky Bar. Another Go Fresh and the Villian's Cafe will be the only food changes in the park.


May I ask where the first bar is located? It's been a while since we have been to SFGadv so I need to plan accordingly if we visit this year. I can imagine that there are at least two frequent visitors to this thread that might be able to tell me right away???!! ;)

And even with a bar next to Sky Screamer, the chances of it helping me challenge that ride are probably slim to none.





PS - I would also be all about a Wawa World...love me some WaWa!
