"You named it what?"

I actually think Wildwoodie is a fun name. Boardwalk flyer is generic.

Funny how that works.. Morey's drew up some plans, and are now building a coaster a few years later. Six Flags drew up some plans 20 years ago, and they still havent seen the light of day.

But for completely different reasons than you claimed...

Besides, that joke never gets old. Don't hate.

P.S. What's your excuse for Waldameer? ;-)

Wildwoodie? If they're going to go that route, just cut the discreetness. I mean, why not just -

Just name it Wooden Rollercoaster 1.

Generic, yet descriptive, everything a good name should be.

I like Boardwalk Flyer, very retro. Wild Woodie? hehehehe - I get funny looks and all kinds of stuff when I say to people "yeah... so and so woodie." Then I remember most people don't call wooden coasters 'Woodies'. The whole anatomical part thing get very old though.

Great Adventure is selling an El Toro t-shirt this season that reads:

You Must Be 48" Tall To Ride THIS Woodie

I might be off on a word or two, but that's the gist of it. They're also selling a Toro tee with the words I LIKE IT ROUGH.

Six Flags and double entendres..perfect together.

The latter one is silly to me, considering the relative smoothness of my favorite coaster.

I take it you didn't read the response from the park confirming why they haven't built a hotel? The point is it wasn't for any of the reasons you stated.

Regardless, I think Wild Woody is a find name that is unique. I much prefer that to the 2nd choice. Which I think is kind of meh.

Edit: also Vater is still awesome.

You mean the response that GA would need to build 200 million worth of other year round attractions to merit building a hotel there?

Like I said Jackson NJ isn't a destination, nor is it located on the way to somewhere. (like Kings Dominion right on 95) It's in the middle of nowhere, and most of the people going there live within 2 -3 hours.

This discussion re-hashed again or marathoning Dark Knight? I just can't decide...

No, he means this response where they said (clarified here) that they would like a hotel nearby if they could partner with someone, but they didn't want to do it all themselves because of marketing conflicts. Specifically, advertising in the Baltimore/Washington area might make people think there was a hotel package available at Six Flags America.

And if I'm not mistaken, isn't SFA one of their less-attended parks? If so, they probably don't want to leech any more visitors away from there to go to one that's already packed.

Lets just rehash the Flashpass debate while we are at it. Six Flags Great Adventure has terrible operations on purpose because it help sell more Flashpasses... ;)

Yeah basically they don't want to do it themselves at this point because they dont want to leech off the other two nearby parks. Which means they're afraid it would be a bit too successful for SFGAdv, and a leech for two other parks. So they Want someone outside to build and market the hotel without the Six Flags name. They didnt mention any deals that they may be working on, btw.

Also I really like Dark Knight :-)

Edit: spelling. Too many wangs and dongs instead of wants and donts. Funny my iPhone now tries to correct Wang to want when i really do mean Wang.
