  2. Not yet at least, but there is still time. It is a little concerning that the financial performance snapshot wasn't released after July 4th this year. I guess we will find out how bad the quarter was on Wednesday. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4439293-cedar-fair-facing-higher-costs-higher-debt-and-lower-attendance
  3. Here is a picture of the layout. Source: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thrillseekersunited1/posts/979521209492222
  4. Six Flags is working with developer Sonnenblick Development LLC on a Fresno park and hotels at Los Angeles, NY/NJ, and Texas parks. https://gvwire.com/2021/07/15/is-six-flags-over-fresno-the-real-deal-developer-looking-at-sites/
  5. I thought this was a bit odd and interesting. There is a construction bid listed for the pre-design phase of a project called Six Flags Over Fresno Amusement Park. https://www.construction.com/projects/dr-202100677434-six-flags-over-fresno-amusement-park https://www.construction.com/projects/?country=USA&query=amusement From January to April, there were rumors that Six Flags was looking at building an amusement park in Fresno and potentially relocating Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. https://thebusinessjournal.com/six-flags-over-fresno-negotiations-to-bring-amusement-park-are-real/

  7. No one in their right mind wants to see AT&T buy anything. They are a poorly managed company that runs every company they buy into the ground. The good news is that AT&T isn't in a position to buy another company right now due to high debt levels and the costs of upgrading their wireless network to remain competitive.
  8. Has anyone heard anything about Skyhawk being sold to another park?
  9. I am not sure how SFGAm would rank against other Cedar Fair parks. In this article from May 27th, 2009, it says Six Flags Great America was the most profitable park in the chain and this was before the schedule was extended with Holiday in the Park. https://prev.dailyherald.com/story/?id=296367
  10. More seas. More fun. SeaFlags https://www.marketwatch.com/story/seaworld-terminates-coo-bogumil-hires-six-flags-executive-271624880485
  11. It terms of attracting new talent, it doesn't make much sense to keep the corporate headquarters in Sandusky.
  12. A Gerstlauer Sky Roller might be another option. https://www.canadaswonderland.com/rides-experiences/skyhawk
  13. "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."
  14. 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.
  15. Sounds like officers were pepper sprayed. https://old.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/comments/niy0bd/did_it_just_get_weird_at_kings_island/gz4lcsh/
  16. 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.
  17. No one would use a construction crane to demolish KillMart.
  18. 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
  19. 100 Million divided by 3. https://blooloop.com/theme-park/news/cedar-fair-theme-park-investments/?source=newsletter
  20. 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.
  21. Hmmm.... https://twitter.com/SDCAttractions/status/1388969302146043904 https://twitter.com/SDCAttractions/status/1388917820797464592
  22. 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/
