I go to TGE about 5 times a year because I really like the park. Comet is the best ride in the park and also one of the best rides.. anywhere..

The hotel and new parking lot is going to me very different then the old lot.. as last time I was at TGE (closeing weekend) they had made the full parking lot 3 - 5 feet taller with dirt build up...

Two new attractions for Great Escape

Postby asr » Thu Sep 27, 2007 8:51 am

Great Escape has just announced two new attractions, Wiggles World and a new waterslide named "Wild Wedgie". I don't know what kind of slide it is, but my gut feeling says it is a Deluge style LIM slide. ... edgie.aspx

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

What is it with the weird names applied to the water slides by Six Flags? First with Deluge at SFKK, now Wild Wedgie at Great Escape. What's next?

I can see it now....Be Prepared to be Flushed at SFMM's Hurricane Harbor - Cameltoe The Ride.

Does Great Escape currently have a tall speed slide tower?

That would make sense as to the name .. since most of those older slides cause wedgies .. where as a master blaster style is more like an enema ... not sure if water sprays up on the ProSlide LIM version.

All I want is a chainlift!

LOL Cameltoe the ride. That should be at a Cedar Fair park though. I can see the ride rating now. Cameltoe the ride is a level 3, but it could be a 5 if ridden correctly.

Quoted for the truth. At least its better than the name "Goliath" being plastered on to a B:TR clone. :lolr:

It shows they have some creativity left in them yet...

So does this mean the SLC is toast?
