Great Escape online

Posted by tge98 (Members) at Sep 5 2013, 04:59 PM. 8 comments

I have been following these boards for a while but nobody posts anymore. I know everyone that will see this post really cares about TGE. I have also been on The other site for a few years. I know you guys don't care about that site that much and I don't know why because that was before my time. But whatever happened it ruined what you guys really cared about, TGE. All I want is one site where everyone can talk about TGE. I have decided to create Great Escape Online. Everyone is welcome to join. We are launching the site on Sunday night.

Just as a warning if I see any of the nonsense that cause all of the fighting over the years you will be banned. It is just going to be for talks of TGE

2013 Season changes

Posted by nyguy (Admin) at Apr 22 2013, 09:52 PM. 49 comments

From what I was told yesterday.. the foundation for the new ride is in place, and the ride will be installed next week. It's already on property. Also, Blizzard will be moved inside the old dome, with an "Igloo" theme. Balloon Race will be moved from it's current location, and moved to the former Blizzard site. And finally, the bumper cars are being moved up to Ghost Town where the games currently are.

Catapult to TGE?

I was reading on other forums and screamscape that six flags new englands catapult might be closed permanently. I think this would be a great fit for TGE and it might settle rumors of why they are moving bumper cars and scrambler out of the fest area

Q & A With Eric Gilbert

Heres the Q&A with the new park president, Eric courtesy of the Post Star.
http://poststar.com/highlights/outlook/2013/great-escape-ramping-up-for-summer-season/article_057df1e4-78b3-11e2-ad9b-0019bb2963f4.html

It seems like this guy is really focusing on the needs of the park and the expectations of guests so lets hope he puts the park in the right direction!

This also stuck out to me-
Q: What are the plans for installing the new Screamin’ Eagles ride, and what are your expectations for the coming season?

A: Right after we closed last year, we took down the old dome, and crews have done soil testing before installing the foundation. We’ll start putting it in when the weather breaks. And I think we’re ready for a banner year, and we want to put on events that capture the attention of the local consumer. I’m excited to see this property in its full operation in this new position. I’ve seen this park through some great transitions, and I can’t wait to get started up again.

Were has the Nostalgia gone

It was brought up that TGE is not what it used to be. Lets discus!

Compare to the late 80s and 90s. What replaced the ghost town train? The dark ride in ghost town? The flats. The shows? Sure you got a few klunkers from other parks but all in all you have less...the park relied on nostalgia and even thats gone. Thats why I have not been back for several years...nor have the folks I know.

Knobels is still fun...and they make $$$$...and they are privately owned...and sort of in the middle of nowhere....and they have a short operating season too...maybe GE solution is to go back into private hands... If they keep adding thrills like this Lake George will loose its last major attraction.
