I think the only part of the whole article I'd blame the park for is lack of proper staffing at the gate when everyone was getting/coming back with hand stamps. I'm guessing that's the norm for that park though. When I went last summer, it took over 30 minutes just to get though the gate on a busy Saturday morning because they had so few turnstiles actually open. The stupid metal detectors and bag searches didn't help either.

The power going out may or may not be the park's fault, depending on whether the failure was in their infrastructure or the power company's. If it's something that's been happening often at the park, I'd be more inclined to assume they have some poor or outdated infrastructure, in which case I'd blame the park. There's no way to really know though, so I guess I'd give the park the benefit of the doubt there.

All good. Kind of odd that it's been happening so much this year, though.

Maybe she should have just eaten the Xanax instead of just licking it....

So, are we saying that power outages at SFGAdv are a "current" issue? ;)

Happy Friday everyone! :)

+1. Who does that? Is this common?

It's probably common among morons.

I don't think she was getting any medical benefit from licking the Xanax. I think it was probably more of a comfort object. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfort_object

Or a disgusting, moist, expensive placebo. Which is more or less the same thing.

I am wondering if this is the same day I went. I didn.t check the trip reports. And forgive me for my pumctuation and spelling. Damn tablet is impossible to type on. Anyway, if the power is an ongoing issue, it should be looked into, but my trip was the first trip that I had problems with the power going down. They did a decent job getting things up and running as soon as they could. Sbe was just dumb for trying to leave and reenter instead of just waiting it out.

I've never understood the decision to put forth the effort to type an apology for typos rather than to just correct them.

Looks to me like Bunky had trouble tying a hyphen on his tablet, so (s)he went with a period instead and then apologized about it. No biggie.

Although Bunky could have just said "did not" instead of "didn.t" to make it look right, and then no one would have known about the trouble.

You pass, Bunky. I'd give your post a B+ if I were the CoasterBuzz Language Arts Teacher. Don't listen to Vater. He's cranky sometimes. :)

On topic, why can't one of the most highly attended and most profitable Six Flags park fix an important issue as powering the property? Expenses that go with updating water and sewage were also a reason believed to prevent them from building an on-property hotel. SFGAdv needs to work on this, but it isn't something that they can market.

You joke, but the one and only time I visited Dover Lake Waterpark they had an awesome expansion for the year.

The park is not responsible for, or able to control, power generation or distribution to the site. Unfortunately, they're at the hands of the utility. They can ask, plead, try to pay for upgrades, but if the power company won't budge, they really can't do much about it.

I would think the best way to get the power company to upgrade you, in New Jersey at least, would be to twist a politician's arm behind their back (and land a roll of cash in their now-concealed hand). ;)

edit: Of course I mean strictly-legal campaign contributions. All on the up-and-up, youknowwhatimean....*wink*
