Looks like they are trying to make Great Adventure a destination. I think we'll see a hotel pretty soon.

For the 2007 season, Six Flags Great Adventure is planning to open a 500 to 700-room full-service hotel within the Park boundaries that will be located adjacent to its new Kingda Ka roller coaster. It is anticipated to be a full-service, three to four-star resort hotel featuring an outdoor swimming pool, restaurants, and an arcade/game room, among other amenities.

I dont know about any of you all, but I would stay at this hotel everytime I'd visit. I've *yet* to find a good hotel around the park (the ones I have been to could barely be called *decent*). And with the added benefit of just falling into my room instead of a 20min drive thru backwoods would be fantastic!

Agreed with you 2Hostyl. I stayed over during past coaster Celebrations at various hotels and they weren't easy to get to or very convenient. If this is a real resort-style hotel, they just might start to convince me that they're being serious about making it a great park to go to again. Now if they can do something about the slow dispatches, I'll seriously think they've changed direction for the good.

Great idea for sure, there is'nt anywhere to stay nearby and if they continue to make the park better and more fun they will have a real winner.

They will definitely make a killing on a nice hotel there. I can't believe it has taken them this long to realize this.

Has anyone else noticed that the survey is on a public survey site where anyone can make their own survey?

I have always wondered why SFGAdv has never built a hotel on property, especially after the waterpark was built.

If a family or someone wants to take advantage of the Two day Two park (umm...Three if you count the safari) tickets, you have to find a hotel nearby to stay overnight. I have looked, and there are not a lot of options near the parks.

Years ago, my family stayed at a REALLY bad Econo Lodge in Trenton, some 20 minuts from the park.

I stayed at a Holiday inn that was about 20 minutes away. That was back when Chiller was new. I remember that being one of the closest places to stay to get to the park.

They are sitting on a cash cow. If they'd have realized that a long time ago they'd probably have several hotels by now.
