Because it's typically somewhere you drag your kids for the day and deal with it.

Your attitude about vacations and families in general sucks. I feel bad for your kids. I would rather ride Jr. Gemini with my kid for the hundredth time over anything else.

What do those apples have to do with my oranges?

We have fun on vacation.... we dont vacation at Six Flags.

But any time you talk about vacation it has some negative connotations regarding having to take your kids places. Almos always. Or at least often.

I find the hatred of his children and his life hilarious. Just laugh.

You have fun on vacation... You don't vacation at Six Flags, so presumably you don't have fun there... You didn't seem to enjoy Disney World.

Why do you go?

He probably goes to a theme park.

We vacation at the beach usually Sea Isle City.. amusement parks are overnight, or daytrip affairs.

We surf, bodyboard, fish crab etc.. hit Moreys on the Monday daytime deal, hit OCNJ a few times..etc.

I saw this

...........Since 2006 there has been a double digit increase in overnight leisure visits to the State, as New Jersey gains market share in the United States. New Jersey visitors are older and have higher income than the national average, as noted by the New Jersey Department of State Division of Tourism. They also noted that the State boasts excellent destination satisfaction ratings as compared to its competition. ...................

Not sure if an older wealthier demographic works for or against an amusement park.


The DCA Local Planning Services report provides a comprehensive primary and secondary market feasibility study, project proforma analysis, and site selection. The results of the New Jersey Institute of Technology College of Architecture and Design report, included the following elements:

  1. Overnight accommodation of 600 rooms, 200 to be open all year round with indoor pool/ spa/ fitness center/ business and conference center
  2. 30,000 sq ft retail/ entertainment venue inclusive of restaurants and retail shops with Main Street feel to be open all year round.
  3. Infrastructure- inclusive of transportation and storm water management.

This comprehensive planning document will be incorporated within the request for proposal for investment opportunity/ hotel entertainment venue in the Jackson Township solicitation for a master developer. ...................

I think they are missing the mark here... outlets and shopping? To support 200 rooms? Brick and mortar stores are going the way of the dinosaur..

I think someone's missing the mark here...just not sure it's the developers of this project.

Did somebody say developers?

How can an entity that doesnt exist, miss the mark?

There are no developers.

This is an appeal to get a developer, the impetus for the project are taxes. Jackson has 87 percent tax load on the residents, and 13 percent on business.

The Mayor of our town has done the same thing, albeit on a smaller scale. Nothing ever comes of it, but he can point to the artist renderings, and make it look like he is trying to do something about the ridiculously high property taxes in this state.

Yes, indeed, someone is missing the mark here....

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 2:52 PM

Is it the developers?

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 10:48 PM

It cant be... because there aren't any.

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 10:50 PM

Bill, are you and Tyler related?

Back to my earlier point about SF being on board... it looks like the entirety of this project is on their property, so they'd have to be on board. .

Unless they dont own the land between the entrance and exit roads to the park.

Yep. Someone's still missing the mark.......

I'll stay in the cheaper hotels when I travel, because I'm always seeking "The best bang for the buck". In 2007 I was visiting the Pacific Northwest to attend an ACE Gathering at Silverwood, Fun Forest and Wild Adventures. A little SNAFU occurred when the plane I was flying on had to make an emergency landing in Boise. (The Cabin Pressurization device failed). We waited in Boise for three hours, then the pilots "commandeered a plane arriving from Atlanta and we made our way to Spokane. Arriving there I discovered The Hotel I had booked reservations CANCELLED my reservations at Midnight because the plane arrived at 2:00 AM. Spokane is NOT a city to go to on a weekend without reservations as there tends to be an acute shortage of rooms at this time. I had to call 25 Hotels before I found one with a room, the Hotel charged me $240.00 a night! At this point I was glad I had found a place to park my carcass, as I had been traveling all day and I was TIRED. When I returned home I contacted Expedia, whom I used to book both my Airline and Hotel Reservations. I got a VERY Pleasant Surprise. Apparently the Airline was supposed to contact Expedia about the flight being delayed, Expedia would in turn contact the Hotel and tell them NOT to cancel my reservation at midnight because the flight I was on was delayed. Consequently I was REIMBURSED the difference between the hotel I had origionally booked and the hotel I wound up in. In other words I got to stay at a $240.00 a night "Posh Palace" at the "Flophouse" Rate of $50 a night!!! :)
