Worlds of Adventure media day reveals Tiger Island

Posted Friday, May 3, 2002 4:43 AM | Contributed by Mr. Villain

On April 30 Six Flags Worlds of Adventure hosted their media day to showcase the new attractions inside the park. Tiger Island was the main attraction, as well as Reptiles Wild and Mandarin Buffet; a new exhibit and a new sit-down restaurant respectively.

Quoted from the site: "Q: Why don't you put it [season parking pass] on the season pass?"
A: At the present time, we don't have the technology for this."

LOL! SFGAm's system - a sticker on the season pass - sure is technologically advanced! It concerns me that SFWoA can't figure out how to put a sticker on a season pass, yet continues to run a large amusement park. ;-)

More than likely that is what coporate told them. I did get to talk to the head manager of season passes and Parking (Michelle). Believe me, she and everyone REALLY want a season parking pass. All the managers are pushing for them big time. There were two other managers there at the time that agreed with me and her. They kept saying they have been pushing for the season parking pass for the past two years since and a little before Sea World was bought out. Evedently what they have been told is that Six Flags Inc. will not give them the go ahead . They also mentioned that the parking lot(s) have to finish the exapansion (which is suppose to be finished next year). It's coming, once they actually get the go ahead.

The parking pass would definitely be nice.

Any update on the hypercoaster, or if they're going to get any dark rides?

I thought this was a tiger exhibit, not a cheesy circus show. I was hoping to see tigers in a natural environment with waterfalls, rocks, etc. What the heck is this?

The natural enviroment with some tree's and rocks is on the other side of the show Martling.. So you can see the tigers out of show too. Not just when they are performing.

Coasterdude- Yeah, it would of been funny if I would of brought up other parks doing this. What about the old parking pass that Geauga Lake had that was simply just another color?

They say that they don't have the "technogoly" but, wait, isn't the "adventure pass" a totally different layout? (Like the pictures on the pass, colors, etc.)??

Maybe she thought that I meant have it in a barcode or something?

I'm a little confused here. Why is it so hard to have a "parking pass" for season pass holders? I just got my Dorney passes last week and the season pass is the parking pass. By being a season pass holder your parking is covered. Where's the great mystery here? What am I missing?

Here is my idea, and if it has been discussed before, I apologize. Why don't they give season pass holders the 'P' on the pass, like Great Adventure, and tell them they can park for free on the Sea World side. That would force traffic to the best parking and entrance scenario. I have been to both parks many time over, and Sea World was designed with crowds in mind. Geauga Lake kind of grew up over the last century. The Sea World lots can handle lots of congestion, and if there were a few hundred extra spaces on the GL side, life might be a bit easier.

And God forbid, with a little bit of forced traffic on the SW side, you may capture some lost lost revenue before this farce occured.

Q: Have you considered an annual parking pass instead of the ticket system? A: Yes, but then the same person would have to drive, as the pass would likely be stickered on to their car, or in another way.

A parking pass you have to have a car to use. How pointless is that?

Where are they dumping these new seven rides? And what did Tiger island replace?

Nate, huh? She meant that the pass would be stickered onto a car, and a person would have to drive that same car each time. Still, why not put it on the pass.. ;)

Maybe I just worded it wrong. ;)

Mikeman- The seven new ride's location can be seen in the pictures in the general gallery. The location is the Happy Harbor area, and by Bounty on Life.

Mikeman-

Tiger Island replace ALL Star Pets Spectacular. The show to most sounded lame, but in reality...it was actually very good and quite humerous. I for one am not a big fan of seeing dogs or cats doing tricks, but the pig was worth it ;) As for all the other rides, yes, Mr. Villain is right. They moved them over to the Life side right as you exit the Land Path or the Bridge Path. As for things they removed for them. The Boat with the SMALL net (yes, the big net is still there) and I think they removed the Water Bounce (which was like a giant waterbed) and a jungle gym (like the ones at McDonalds). I'll get a closer look today! Hope to see everyone over the weekend!!
