This week on Good Day Philadelphia, which is the morning show on the local Fox station, they are doing a segment each day called Thrill Week. A reporter is visiting one of the regional parks each morning and doing a story about new attractions.
Monday, they were at Dorney and the reporter rode Hydra (well at least from the "tease" they alluded to it, I didn't actually see the segment.) Today, they were at SFGAdv and the reporter, um, talked to a SF rep while they showed the computer generated video of Kingda Ka. He did take a turn on Eruption afterwards.
They don't say where they'll be the rest of the week. Guess it's not good form to mention the competition when in someone else's park. But it's likely they'll include Sesame Place and one of the Piers at the Jersey Shore.

I'm curious are you guys seeing Busch/SeaWorld commercials in the PHL market?
I've seen several of them in NY market(on NBC I think).

I've been seeing a lot of Williamsburg commercials. Then again, it's for the whole "experience," not just Busch, but coasters and water slides are a big part of the commercials.

I've been seeing both the general Williamsburg and the Curse of DarKastle commericials.

I've also seen a bunch of Sea World commercials in addition to the Williamsburg ones...so yes it is a common thing.

Probably head over to Clementon for J2 and Hershey for Storm Runner. What time does that come on?

The show runs from 5:30 to 9:00 AM, I believe, but I don't think they show the "at the park" segments until after 7:30. Actually, they were at Hershey this morning.
The reporter was in Midway America at the kiddie rides, and they showed video of Storm Runner-- actual rides, not the computer generated "this is what it will sort of look like" video." They also had someone with some critters from Zoo America. I was wondering, though, since the park isn't actually open every weekday yet, who the people that were in the park were-- and why the little rugrats weren't in school.
