Did anyone else get the survey last week asking about the Season Pass program and it's benefits?

I saw that too. Unfortunately we are probably going to get the flats package because they said attractions.


It would be interesting to see how they market that.



I'm pretty sure this is it:

our NEW 2012 attractions

How did they market Bizarro? Well, I remember the station spiel saying "enjoy your ride on the ALL NEW Bizarro" so I think they would advertise these flats as new. Plus, the GP really wouldn't notice on this one.

If they reopen Old Country, they'll probably market the section as a whole with the starflyer being the centerpiece

Hey, you never know. That whole confirmation was kind of vague, so there's still some hope.

I think in the advertisements they said it was the all new Bizarro coaster. It worked since a few times I heard people say it was a new coaster.

I know people who thought they got rid of medusa and when I told them they didnt and bizarro was just medusa with refurbishments they didnt believe me and still dont believe me. Their biggest arguement I kid you not: "No that cant be right cause medusa was green and this like blue!"

If RedZone was still in control, maybe for 2012 we would have gotten another coaster refurbished and painted a different color and the same thing would happen. The GP thinks it is a new coaster and they "only" had to spend a few hundred thousand for it.

same^ i mean i get if they were misled by the advertisements marketing it as a new ride, but if someone is telling you that its the same ride, and he/she seems to know what they are talking about why would you insist on saying its different. and do people really forget the layout of a coaster when it changes color? ive talked to people who are convinced its a different ride even after riding it. i dont get people sometimes lol

And why would that be disappointing? I welcome flats. This is not 2005 and 2006.

I'm going to be a little P.O.'d if we get a StarFlyer that is under 300' tall. I like flats, but the flats we are getting are old, used and have been SBNO for the last 4 seasons.. I thought we were going to get a real flat package....

Yeah, I REALLY hope we get a gigantic Star Flyer, and the park cleaned up a little bit in addition to whatever new things we get. I just got back from Knoebel's, that park probably has 1/4th the budget Great Adventure has, yet it's better in almost every way.
