Everything in the park needs a paint job, especially Nitro. IMO they should paint it red with black supports, yellow+pink+blue is an awful color combo

I've always liked the paint scheme on Nitro, something about the pink adds a flare to it. I feel like if/when Six Flags repaints it, they'll just go for yellow and blue and eliminate the accent color.

^I really hope when the time comes Nitro gets a full repaint in the original color scheme it's such a unique paint job and when it was new it really looked awesome. Nitro is still one of Great Adventure's stars and deserves only the best, but then again this is six flags we are talking about :lol:.

So I am going to be in Philly in a few days.

Am debating ubering up to the park on Wednesday. At best I'll only be able to get there by 3. So I'll have at most 5 hours at the park. I assume I wont be able to ride everything but I want to ride El Toro with rerides, KK and Nitro at a minimum.

Considering it looks like a $150 minimum 2 hour round trip plus the ticket cost, I am worried about the ROI. Does anyone here have any immediate concerns about my idea (i.e. school groups, ride closures, etc.)?

Wednesday is my only possible day. I'm also willing to listen to ideas about cheaper ways to get there.

Is renting a car an option at all?

You can take a train to Trenton and an uber and it will be cheaper, but time is of the essence so if anything I would only worry about that on the return trip because it takes more time out of an already short day. People have also had issues getting Ubers from the park on occasion because it's in the middle of nowhere.

Know a decent rental place in downtown Philly?

I'm not opposed to renting, I just can't leave Philly until 2pm so I'm trying to maximize my time at the park. But if a car can cut my price in half I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of time. Of course then I have to take parking into account. I do have a lead foot.

My other reasoning for an Uber is that I enjoy a beer or 3 but idk what the beer situation at the park is.

Of course if I rent a car then Hershey isn't out of the question either. Just have to pick one.

Skyrush is closed. Go to Great Adventure. It’s closer anyway.

Is there no way that you can just pick up the car ahead of time so it’s ready to go at 2:00 on Wednesday? Considering how much you’re prepared to spend on Uber I feel like even if you pay for an extra day it’s worth it for the convenience. Rental cars from PHL are like 26 bucks a day.

Look into a Six Flags membership. It’s dirt cheap.

Good to know, makes my decision easier.

I am staying near the convention center so it would be like 50 bucks to park the thing.

That being said looks like I can get a car near the bus station for 60 bucks so thanks for the advice.

I live in KC so nowhere near a decent SF and it's highly unlikely I'll visit another one this year but I'll do some more digging. How much is daily parking at the park?
