Exactly.  Six Flags needs their own Matt Ouimet to get things back on track because they are doing things right recently and it's not much of a surprise to anyone that knows his skills and background.
Ugh.... wow.  After participating in plenty of surveys over the past year, it really seems they want to push the membership vs actual season passes.  Now I'm glad I didn't go for it as well.  Besides this mess, it's just too freakin confusing.  All they need to do is properly implement a system that doesn't require processing the pass in person!  Especially if you are a returning pass holder.  Even if they don't want to continue to the biometric to verify identity, then go with a system like Disneyland that has a picture of you on file which pops up as you enter the gate.  That picture can then be reused for years.

Yeah that's the complaint that should be going on. This park in particular, and SFMM need to take an off year and use it to focus on entertainment and atmosphere.

I've been hoping for that at Catowinds and am happy it's finally happening. With next years new stuff, all of the coasters recently having been painted, and an overhauled food department and entertainment coming next year, they're finally on the right path.
So after over 15 calls to SFGADV membership line and 2 emails I still had no answers so I just canceled it ! I then went ahead and purchased new season passes because I felt like this  :headbash: :headbash: with the membership . I will NEVER do that membership again !!

On to our trip on 8/30 ...  4 of us go to the park with our new 2015 vouchers in hand and head to the gates .. Get into the park and head to processing it is now about 1:30 the line to process was just about at the start of the gate I figured maybe 45 min and we would be done ... NOT SO !! 2 and 1/2 hours LATER we are still ON LINE !!!! As we are waiting we have three young teenagers who thought we were going to let them  waltz past us  >:( Now I am hungry and tired of waiting this becomes a screaming match and I am called a racist because I did not let them cut me ... WONDERFUL all along there was not one Security Guard to be found ! I asked them to go  get the person who told them to go to the front of the line and then they got nasty ! It should never get to this point but again there was no Security around and nobody there to stop them . Needless to say security should have been posted there !! We get to the computer room to be processed and find TWO yes TWO people there to process passes !! WTH ?? There are a good 20 computers in that area !! Your park is  running a MAJOR sale on a HOLIDAY WEEKEND and you have TWO people there to process passes ?? Sorry but who is in charge of this mess ?? This person should no longer have a job .. after we were processed the line was well out toward the Parachute ride I can only guess how long those people waited !!  :o

Hopefully they'll use some capital and paint and spruce up the parks getting these.

THIS.... that's the part I take issue with.  None of these parks should be expecting insane thrill rides every year.  Past regimes have 10 times over proven that is not a viable business model.  However, when they don't have a huge capital expense at a particular park they should be sprucing the place up.  In recent years, it's almost as though Great Adventure opens the front door and boots things up and says we are open.  The deplorable condition of many of the areas screams in need of $$$$ and this coming off-season is hopefully THE year improvements starts to happen.

In the big pocture, do you really think less people will come of they find out that six flags is calling this a coaster?

I've heard people call it a coaster at fairs for years. To me, this just seems like a way to have an off year at some parks and still add a ride. Hopefully they'll use some capital and paint and spruce up the parks getting these.

I just think its a terrible PR decision by Six Flags corporate to refer to this as a Rollercoaster in the marketing. You think they would have learned from The dark knight coaster about setting up false expectations.

Yup.  Although not entirely all that big of a surprise since we sorta had a heads up :).  Please join the conversation over in the park news thread - http://www.gadvoutpost.com/index.php/topic,4213.0.html

I'll be honest, if Carowinds got a fireball next year, I'd be happy. We need more flats.

But we're getting a waterpark expansion apparently (finally).
