Happy 1 Year Anniversary :Wave:


Great spotlight. Out of all the retro commercials, the only one remember was the Medusa commercial. Can't wait to see what you guys are rolling out for those "every ten days".

Once again, an incredible representation of the park's past. I was surprised, however, to not see the 1975 color print advertisement that appeared in McCall's magazine. If you do not have it, let me know and I will be happy to send you a copy of it.

The number of Great Adventure commercials now on TV has really died down compared to summer. In July and August commercials were on almost every hour on one channel or another. It has been quite some time since I have seen one. Mark Shapiro was kidding when he stated that they were investing heavily in peak season advertising.

We learned something interesting while at dinner on Tuesday night.


Warner Brothers and Green Lantern have a special promotional contract with Pepsi. As you know Six Flags is a "Coke" company so anytime the park advertisements references Coca Cola, they have to refer to Green Lantern as the "new stand-up coaster" and not by the name Green Lantern.


The earliest commercial for the season referenced the ride as Green Lantern, but the latest one which advertises opening weekend and Coca Cola discounts calls the ride by a generic "stand-up coaster"!


This will continue for the rest of the season.

That is pretty interesting. I remember a while back that Green Lantern document that first said SF would infact be making a GL themed coaster, it also mentioned that they were partnering with Mountain Dew to promote GL. Mountain Dew is owned by Pepsi Co.


Will they show the logo for Green Lantern like they did in the first commercial?

To help us bring spring along a little quicker, enjoy this commercial from March 2002. I am sure you will spot many coasters that are no longer at Great Adventure (and some that were never there). Click below to see the commercial:



that one gives me a headache! LOL


Regarding the WPIX commercial, I totally forgot that they use to offer discount prices after 4 pm - a blast from the past!
