Once it hits CNN.Com or MSNBC.Com, then it's major news (forget foxnews.com). I haven't yet seen anything on those sites as of yet, but I'm sure it'll be in their business section soon, if not already.
Hey, if you'd been reading, you'd see I (who was one of the loudest people saying it won't get press) admitted I was wrong the second I heard Robin reading it on the news and Howard saying he wanted to puke just thinking about it.
But since you missed that one, here it is again; I was wrong, I underestimated the proximity to New York and the press it'd get.
I woke up and it was on the news after they was reading off about business. It was on the radio, and im sure the newspapers would have them maybe not today but during the construction especially when it opens.
I've had three people at work ask me about it already. Seeing I've only had one other person ask me about a new coaster in all the years I've been working here, I'd have to say that this thing is getting monster coverage.
I hate to say this but who cares...after all the well documented problems with the prototypes "Excalibur & TTD" it will not matter unless this attraction can run on a regular basis.
However, it is funny to think that Six Flags used the money from the CF transaction to acquire GL. I wish them well and I hope that Intamin has figured out their technology so the attraction can run efficiently. However, one attraction does not make a park. There is a reason that CP excells every year.
Yea, this "one attraction" won't "make" Great Adventure be anywhere near as good as Cedar Point since they have boring coasters that nobody likes such as Nitro, Medusa, Superman, and The Chiller. They definitely don't have anything anyone will want to go back to the park for besides Kingda Ka. They better keep their fingers crossed, because that's all the hope they have now...
