These new Tracy additions isa big deal for the HH and other Tracy enthusiastic. It's already in a couple of articles for Amusment park fans. What it's not reaching out to is Ocean City favorites and regulars.
Last Year WBAL did a story on Jolly Rogers. Foccussing on Morbid Manor going 3D. IDK if that drew more attention to Jollys or not but they had the right idea.
One thing I will give credit for Jollys is that they frequently update the attractions to make the costumers think that they actually give a nuts about keeping there stuff up-to-date. For example they gave an unnecessary paint job to the Looping Star and the Ferris Wheel, When they just painted it Green and Purple about 5 year ago when Jollys bought the pier.
THIS IS THE PERFECT CHANCE for the HH to get the publicity it needs! most OC regulars spend there $3, ride it once, nver visit it again because they think it would be so predictable. I bet about over 90% never realized the addition of BOLT and updated sounds for stuff like the torture chamber. Trimpers defenitally needs to make its move with such titles as, "Ocean City's Haunted House getting an overhaul with 7 new stunts"
After all Trimpers is still in the Dark due to its previous accident with the Tital Wave (which I do not believe it is still safe due to my experience with it over the summer) and most people had no idea that it was back up and running
even if Trimpers rejects the idea, we HH fans can still help. Tell your friends, blog about it, post statuses on facebook, ect.....

Hate to say it, but the "Tracy Enthusiastic" are a very small group; not really a marketable one, as we are all here on this board; why waste money that could be used to improve the ride when they can contact us all right here for free?
What I really feel Trimpers needs to look into is getting into the rankings at Amusement Today, the "Official" amusement industry publication. Knoebels is a big name in that publication, along with Holiday World, Cedar Point, Dollywood, Busch Gardens, and a few others. They just introduced the category of "Best Seaside Amusement Park" to the Golden Ticket Awards... Might be a long shot to try and get the award, but who knows? I guess it all depends on the preferences of the voters, but Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is currently the reigning champion with the award.
Brandon: The forum has so many new visitors, but so few new posts! Come on people! Let's get the conversation started. Summer is almost here!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?

Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
