I would assume still being worked on by maintenance. The shorter off season may have something to do with it not being ready yet.

RB's 3rd train is almost never ready for the start of the season. I've never seen it ready for opening day the past few years. It usually is up and running past Memorial Day. I'm guessing because of HITP is why it's taking so long.

The weirdest thing happened at the park today . I was going on Superman about 20 minutes before closing. As I passed the last TV in the queue, I heard strains of the Merry Mardi Gras Parade (an original 1976 show at GAm). I backed up expecting a video of it playing on the TV, but it was coming out of a FAKE BIRDHOUSE hanging in the tree! I stood there and listened to it loop the entire show soundtrack. When I got off the ride, it was silent again. Maybe it plays right before park closing? Has anyone else heard this? I've seen that hidden speaker for years, but never heard anything playi g from it!

So, they play this song all the time now, Rockabye. I look at the video, and you have ladies on stripper poles. :D Don't worry though, they aren't nude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=papuvlVeZg8 Great Family Friendly stuff! Hilarious.

Six Flags is very strange.... They constantly refer to Disney as the gold standard in their annual reports.

Yet Disney has themed music for each one of their territories.

It would cost Six Flags nothing to switch back to the old themed music and it would leave a much better impression on park guests. Most people would rather hear ragtime piano music at a theme park rather than retards grunting and mumbling over a crappy beat, lol

The loud, shitty pop music is one of my least favorites parts of six flags

It's a strange mix of current pop and theme music now.
Could've sworn I heard the theme music in Yukon Territory on Saturday.

Was it in Mooseburger Lodge because I know they play it there, at least as of a couple of weeks ago.

Did anyone else get email stating there's an exclusive ride time event on 6/21 for ONE hour (sponsored by Takis)? I called customer service and she said that's the ONLY event that day -- meaning NO Coasters After Dark!! It also appears that August Coasters After Dark is gone too!

Also, I saw ealier in the year, in the Portal that it was bring a friend for 19.99, week of 6/17 - 6/21, but the email said 29.99 for that week! Portal now says 29.99 for 6/17 - 6/21.
Week of 6/10 - 6/14 is 19.99 for a friend.

What's going on with them changing our perks?? I almost need to make screenprints of things when I see them for "proof" of what had been on my list of benefits.

I'm a gold passholder.

Could the fight that broke out have to do with the reason there's no Coasters After Dark?

Yes, Yukon is playing themed music in that section as well as in mooseburger. Basically the back half of the park is on themed music. I wonder if this is planned or some kind of fluke.

I kind of wondered the same thing. The park IS open 1 hour later that day though.

There is a bonus Sprint Free Friend day as well. You have to go into a participating Sprint store (there are 4 total) and get a "coupon" and then present that on almost any day after 6/21.

In all fairness, sometimes the beat isn't that bad, but the grunting and mumbling is consistently crappy.

I find it funny that most of the pop songs they play are several years old now. Sounds like they have a "2015 Summer Pop Songs Playlist" consisting of 10 same songs XD

Not this year!
I’ve heard current stuff this year and stuff that’s not even popular yet. I was like Wow Six Flags, I’m a DJ and just started playing this. Also being a DJ I don’t mind the music just wish it didn’t loop so much. I’d be happy to program for them if they’re in here reading this.

They were playing Old Town Road the other day and I almost fell over. The entire midway was singing and dancing too it over by Superman.
It was actually pretty cool

It's all Katy Perry stuff

Also, the Little Dipper playlist is awful, it's supposed to be songs from the 50s (when Dipper was built) like "Shaboom" and "All Shook Up", but they blend in "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" and the list is on repeat every hour or so. Further proof that Six Flags is culturally impaired.

Another update speaking of Coasters after Dark, there was another minor fight in the parking lot last night when the park was closing.
They say there isn't a spot in the park where rusting metal or peeling paint is at least 15 feet away from you.

For today, the park appears to be extremely packed because they are putting groups of people with regular people now. Today, it's supposedly ComEd group day. Also, people look at the weather tomorrow, and I'm sure a lot of people that would go tomorrow are not because of the storms on Sunday. Last weekend, they also had a group on the weekend. So, be aware of this for the weekends. Regular people just probably think it's "regular people" coming the park only, but it's not.

Well, they changed it back to pop music. Dammit. They need to get this music thing straight. Seriously, who is in charge of this stuff? Don't they check what's playing and the volume in each of the areas? At this point, I think it's incompetence. They restore all the sound effects on Giant Drop, remaster the Demon song, but can't make up their minds on the music for CF and YT?

From facebook Six Flags Great America club, this happened at the park today:

"Woman and her bf where fight she pulled a knife and pepper spray out started spraying the pepper spray around me and like 5 other told her to stop there where children around she pointed the knife at us and threatened to stab us along with her bf"

^I don't see how that's funny. The person that wrote that though didn't write it in great grammar, but that's definitely not funny.

To write that clearer, you can say this instead. I am paraphrasing that quote.
A woman and her boyfriend were fighting. Than, she pulled a knife and pepper spray out (of her pocket??). She than started spraying the pepper spray around (the person that originally wrote this sentence) and around 5 other people told her to stop because there where children around. She pointed the knife at us and threatened to stab us (with the knife) along with her boyfriend.
