All of the coasters were running when the park opened except for Kingda Ka. Kingda Ka started testing around 11:30 or so.

Has anyone else noticed this shirt in the gift shop?

Why is that many parks have Incredible Hulk silhoulletes. In CGA, you can see a red Incredible Hulk silhoullette, I remember finding it next to the restrooms near Barney Oldfield.

My guess would be that there are ton of shots of Incredible Hulk on the subscription image services (which are sort of like the Associated Press but just for stock photos/video) and it's an easy image to get and looks like a generic roller coaster. Those are the kind of services graphic designers often use when putting together stuff like this merchandise. Who cares? The gp will never notice.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^Even knowing parks do stuff like that, I seriously assumed it was Bizarro and maybe bits of the other B&Ms at SFGAdv. Although that did leave me wondering what was funny about the shirt...and now I know. :p

I probably wouldn't have noticed that it was The Hulk if it weren't for Dr. Doom's FearFall. That was a dead giveaway. I too would have just seen it as Bizarro.
The greatest threat the Corps ever faced was Parallax, an entity that fed on the yellow energy of fear.

I've gone pantless!

Bummer on the El Toro crew Nicole. Hope you still got enough ride time in.


Only got one ride in, but it was enough for my fix :)

I don't recall seeing this mentioned before.

Skyscreamer will be open for only season passholdres from May 17th - May 20th. This is a great way to add value to passholders.

I created a video of my photos from my latest trip to Great Adventure last week. If you've seen my Photo TR, then it's nothing new.
