I think he took the "Adventure" part of the park's name a tad too literally :lol:

There are probably at least a dozen water-parks that are closer to Great Adventure than the American Dream Mall. I really think that the Great Adventure - American Dream competition is incredibly overblown.

If you have a restaurant in NYC, and someone opens one down the block, that still competition even though there are 67,982 other ones

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Except that American Dream is not "down the block" from SFGA.

Seriously do I have to go dig up the multiple pages in either this thread or the American Dream one where this has been covered ad nauseum?

Edit: Here we go. Start there and read down.

Hey, what do you know, it was you that was making the same nonsense point.

But your original comment insinuates that there are no other restaurants. :lol:

Just remember Boldy, Wildwood is closer to DC than New York so Morey's water parks don't count. :lmao:

And it's not like it's 25 minutes from the biggest waterpark in the world, the ocean. Also, indoor water parks during the summer are a special kind of gross (as opposed to the usual, highly chlorinated petri dish gross they are during the winter).

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I mean, I for one couldn't care less for what waterparks are close to Great Adventure.

Unless they're something other-wordly (which I doubt they are), I'd still rather just go to the one which happens to have a giant, awesome amusement park placed conveniently right next it.

It's just not real competition. You can get a six flags season pass that includes the water park for like $65-70 bucks and free parking. A quick look about the mall of America prices and the Nickelodeon season pass is $139 plus tax. Looking at the Edmonton mall which they also own I don't even see a season pass offered but a single day is $49 and a 2 day multi park pass is $119. None of this even includes parking which you're going to have to pay for at this mall.

You can get a six flags season pass with access to both parks plus free parking and a dining pass instead.
