Six Flags Great Escape Resort, New York’s most thrilling resort property, will rebrand its outdoor waterpark as Hurricane Harbor for the 2019 season, offering guests a bigger, better and wetter experience. The park will undergo a major expansion with more to see and do than ever before, including two brand-new, family attractions: Bucket Blasters, where riders will spin around in barrels for a good old-fashioned water gun battle, and Shipwreck Cove, a fun activity pool with interactive water sprays, geysers, and fountains for hours of water play entertainment.
I like how Bucket Blasters sounds like it'll be placed in the water park. I found the Aqua Twist quite fun at Discovery Kingdom, but it's an absolute drencher so it's more appropriate for the water side.
I'm not too sure. I remember they used to have the Looney Tunes kids area 5-6 years ago but then it became a generic area. When they took that away, I was sort of skeptical if the name would ever be Six Flags Great Escape. But we'll see!
I wonder where these new attractions are going to go, as the water park here is divided into two levels between a very steep hill and all the space is taken up for the most part. I could see the flat ride in front of the Comet being moved in order to accommodate this. I hope this doesn't spell the ending of the Bobsled...
^Although not impossible I would be extremely surprised if that happened. Even though people might start refering to the park as "Six Flags Great Escape" the park itself is not really flagged and I think Timbertown is a better fit for the Great Escape than the Looney Tunes.
