Hello all.
This is eishinyc who live in NYC. Love to ride coasters, but do not have any friend who willing to ride with me. So looking for costerlovers who can spend time with me @ Sixflags GreatAdventure during weekdays. Anyone?

Weekdays are tough, but with enough notice, it'll sometimes work. But I'm usually up for GAdv if my health allows.

I now have my Six Flags pass, so as long as I am in town here in DC, it's no problem for me to ride up to Gradv for a weekday. Let me know when you plan to go and I'll let you know whether I am still in town.

I also have a sixflags season pass as well and hope to return to Great Adventure again!

Welcome to the boards! I'm a season pass holder too and GAdv is my home park. I'm usually off on Thurs and Fridays (although have a few Wed for Fri switches coming up) so I'm game. Lets pick a date and see who wants to go!

Re: Hello from a new member by eishinnyc eishinnyc Profile at 6/30/12 11:51:50 PM
OMG!!!!! OMG!!!!
Wonderful!!!!
I was asking around years and years.
Finally found right people!!!!

By the way, I may go there day after tomorrow Monday by myself to get seasonal pass.

I can visit the park during weekdays only by NJ transit.
(this means by end of Aug)
Which one should I get?
How about their water park?
Worth for extra money?

Then let's toss off a date or three in August or later July and see if we can get a little outing together. Again, I need as much notice as possible.

Does NJ Transit stop their bus service after August? Do you board at Port Authority or elsewhere?

I've actually never been in Hurricane Harbor, so I can't speak to that. Always looked like a pretty generic waterpark to me.

Cool to see another New Yorker here! Anyways, sorry it doesn't seem like GAdv is in my plans for this year. Hope you have a great time there.

For some reason I still do not have my work schedule for this month and Aug.
But usually have every Tuesday off.
Maybe some Wed too.

I board at Port Authority.

>Does NJ Transit stop their bus service after August?

Just SAT and SUN which I work......

Re: Hello from a new member by eishinnyc eishinnyc Profile at 7/1/12 11:49:54 PM
Do you live in City?
I was asking around many years.
Where were you hiding?

Sure we will see each other sometime soon :)

Re: Hello from a new member by Cyclone_Phil Cyclone_Phil Profile at 7/2/12 12:26:07 AM
All I will say is I live in the city ;) Who knows maybe we might bump into each other if we're headed for Coney Island :)

Maybe. I need to check when Redskins Fan day is as that is when I will be back from Va Beach visiting mom.
Will let you know for sure on Wednesday after our 4th of July parade.

Goddddd. You people and your weekdays off! This season I can't do weekdays really :/

If you guys decide on a day and it's the weekend...you better count me IN! If it's a weekday I will sob and cry in a corner.

But on a serious note, I'd be stoked for a TR of a SFGADv trip from URCers!

Re: Hello from a new member by alpengeistno3 at 7/2/12 2:56:39 PM
Fan Day is the following Saturday, so I'm good for the 26th. My friend (now boss as he got promoted) is looking at a trip to Cedar Point that weekend. Leaving on Friday, the 27th. I don't really want to drive back from Great Adventure then make a trip up to CP, but he is no coaster enthusiast by any means, so he may not go through with it. An August date would be preferable just to make sure I don't get in a situation of having to choose.

Mugen, sorry your summer schedule is not as flexible. I'd offer you an application to Prince Georges County Public Schools if the budget was not so tentative that they are going through another hiring freeze. We haven't had a raise in 4 years, so the pay isn't great.

When do you go back to work? I'm in San Diego the first 2 weeks and I probably wouldn't be able to go until the 16th. I am off the last week in August.

I can go on most Sundays but then we are getting flash passes - NO WAY am I stepping foot in that park on a weekend without one! We can always make 2 trips - I literally live 20 minutes away from the park.

Unfortunately, I suspect it is that week, on Monday. We will have Friday off since schools aren't open on Fridays during the summer to cut down on the budget. If we have to wait that long, may have to look into that Sunday plan you came up with for Mugen.

Well, let us know about the 26th and if not we can do a Sunday. I know the OP said he works weekends so we can always do 2 trips.

Mike - see if you can get that day off too and let us know.

Well you said that day may work b/c the 18/19 isn't enough notice and Paul couldn't go then.

And I don't know why I wrote "he". Should have said "they" - so eishinnyc are you male or female? And since you started this thread what day works for you?

Don't drop the 26th on the account of me. I don't trust my friend to follow though on that Cedar Point trip, so I am 8/10's sure I can go.

It was a guess. I was right? Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day. And don't worry, I've got the chest hair part covered. Not up top, though....

Definitely let us know as soon as you have your work schedule. Jen, Paul, and I I have had a blast on the coupla occasions when we've all gotten together, and we'd love to join you for some Toro!

Re: Hello from a new member by beastmaster beastmaster Profile at 7/4/12 5:15:20 AM
I can put in for the 18th and see what happens. No guarantees I'll get the day. That was when Paul will be at BG, I think, but the day seems ok for Jen and eishinnyc. If it works for both of you, I'll request it when I'm back at work tomorrow and see what happens. Worst case, you both can meet up. Otherwise, we can look to something in August.

Anyone else wanna join the par-tay?

eishinnnyc, my address is sonbeast1964@yahoo.com if you wish to contact me. Might be able to work out something that would allow you to stay a bit later at the park than NJ Transit might allow for.

Mike

*EDIT* I put in a request for the 18th.

Paging eishinnyc....

You mentioned earlier in this thread that July 18 would work for you for a day at GAdv. It works for Jen (GoYanks34) and I just got approval for the day off, so I'm game. If you're still interested in going and meeting, Jen and I would be glad to join you. My e-mail address appears earlier in the thread, or you can reply on the board.

If anyone else would like to join us on Wednesday 7/18 for some NiToro (and other stuff, too :))..just chime in.

The bus arrives there around 11:00 to 11:10.
It takes another 5 to10 minutes to get in the park.
Then I stop by their guest relations.

So may I see you sometime between 11:20 to 11:30?
Please let me know where is good for your guys.
Coca cola place or Nathan's??
