Thanks for the updates! Very interesting about the Chiller ride area. Interested to see, assuming that area is open to the public, if anything changes later in the season. If not, I think we should keep an eye on the Right Stuff theater.

Is it just me, or do the headrests on those trains seem to tilt pretty far forward? They look like they would be pretty uncomfortable.

So if Gradv exceeded 209k visitors for HITP that means more than likely annual attendance topped the 3 million mark for the first time in more than a decade. Impressive!!


Attendance may have topped 3 million *wink wink*

Wow the ride seems to be coming along great! I am actually excited to try it especially after trying the death trap that is Green Lantern at SFMM. From the pictures it doesn't look as big as I thought it would from the fountain, especially when the trees begin to grow leaves it will kind of be hidden. It is disappointing that the ha ha ha centerpiece won't be there. And maybe it's just me but 3 million seems kind of unimpressive since other seasonal parks with shorter operating calenders get more than that without a holiday event. But either way this ride looks awesome and it looks like Great Adventure will have another great year!

^ If they indeed hit 3 million, that'd make them the highest attended park in the chain. That's certainly impressive when considering the chain has two parks that operate year-round. Good for them.

GAdv leading the chain in attendance is nothing new...they've done it multiple times the last 20 years. That is why during the KK/Toro era they were making a big push to make the park a resort. It is one of the few regional parks in the country that has the attendance and potential to justify such investments.

I'd say that sfgad is not a regional park

^ I think you're confused to what a "regional park" is. Great Adventure is no WDW or Universal. People don't plan their yearly vacations around visiting.
