  1. It terms of attracting new talent, it doesn't make much sense to keep the corporate headquarters in Sandusky.
  2. A Gerstlauer Sky Roller might be another option. https://www.canadaswonderland.com/rides-experiences/skyhawk
  3. "Cedar Fair LP, one of several amusement park operators with bottom lines hurt by Covid-19, is parting ways with its longtime legal chief Duffield “Duff” Milkie."
  4. It would be interesting if the front of the park was redeveloped into a special event/entertainment zone and marketplace. Similar to what is in the master plan for California's Great America.
  5. Sounds like officers were pepper sprayed. https://old.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/comments/niy0bd/did_it_just_get_weird_at_kings_island/gz4lcsh/
  6. It's 2024 and the hedge fund that is now running Cedar Fair decides to rightsize the coaster lineup at Kings Dominion. Intimidator 305 is relocated to Kings Island and the park finally gets a giga coaster.
  7. No one would use a construction crane to demolish KillMart.
  8. Gene Staples is building a nice little chain of parks. https://www.wgrz.com/article/money/business/chicago-investor-negotiating-to-reopen-fantasy-island/71-2b82a131-f3a6-4ea9-adec-2b56ea8cc2fd
  9. 100 Million divided by 3. https://blooloop.com/theme-park/news/cedar-fair-theme-park-investments/?source=newsletter
  10. 8 parks without a 4D Freespin, but La Ronde is getting a Zacspin. Magic Mountain, Frontier City, La Ronde, Great Escape, Darien Lake, America, St. Louis, Over Georgia.
  11. Hmmm.... https://twitter.com/SDCAttractions/status/1388969302146043904 https://twitter.com/SDCAttractions/status/1388917820797464592
  12. Which park do you think is building this? http://amusementtoday.com/2021/04/gerstlauer-to-build-one-of-a-kind-record-breaking-roller-coaster-in-the-united-states/
  13. Cedar Fair's brand recognition is so weak, they can't use it to license parks in international markets. SeaWorld and Six Flags are able to do these deals because people outside of North America know their brands and are willing to pay for the name to be attached to parks.
  14. S&S makes Mine Train coasters too. http://s-s.com/rides/mine-train-coaster/
  15. Herschend purchased the Vancouver Aquarium. https://www.attractionsmanagement.com/index.cfm?subID=0&pagetype=news&codeID=347556&dom=n&email=web&pub=AMe&date=
  16. ^There was a recent NY Times article about Clementon Park where Gene was pondering rebuilding Jack Rabbit. It's nice to see all of these Schwarzkopf coasters coming to the U.S. COTAland near Austin, TX purchased Raptor Attack from Lightwater Valley in the UK.
  17. Cedar Fair and Compagnie des Alpes Cedar Fair would pickup 9 parks (including Bellewaerde Park, Futuroscope, Parc Asterix, Walibi Belgium, Walibi Holland) a couple of waterparks and a bunch of ski resorts in Europe. They could offer travel packages to visitors on each side of the Atlantic. https://www.compagniedesalpes.com/en/our-brands
  18. Cedar Fair is splitting management of park operations between Jason McClure and Pat Jones. https://www.morningjournal.com/business/carrie-boldman-named-vice-president-and-general-manager-at-cedar-point/article_5654b2b2-97a2-11eb-b665-e7c577b701eb.html https://www.coaster101.com/2021/04/06/carowinds-announces-manny-gonzalez-as-new-vpgm/
  19. Here are two slides from the March 2021 Investor Presentation: https://s2.q4cdn.com/170666959/files/doc_presentations/2021/FUN-Investor-Presentation_2021-03_FINAL.pdf
  20. I have a gut feeling that Six Flags Great America is getting the prototype of Axis as their next coaster. Time will tell.
  21. https://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/toddler-killed-in-collision-at-six-flags-parking-lot-police-say
  22. I haven't found anything about Feld Entertainment going under. They are still doing Monster Jam events. https://www.heraldtribune.com/story/entertainment/events/2021/03/09/ellenton-based-feld-entertainment-brings-monster-jam-tampa/6904893002/
  23. New survey from Kentucky Kingdom: https://www.pages03.net/kentuckykingdom/GuestEngagement_Campaigns/ListeningCampaign_Main/
  24. Frontier City: Tumbleweed (Chance Rides Rotor) and Thunder Road Raceway (Go-Karts) are being removed. https://www.facebook.com/groups/thrillseekersunited1/permalink/889962368448107/
  25. Six Flags Over Georgia: Sky Buckets are closed and all signage removed.
