  1. Interp is correct. The corporation showed very unwise decision making not settling this prior to verdict.
  2. The laws vary from state to state as to how an insurance company is or is not able to drop an insured. For the most part, an insurer can not drop someone during a policy term unless there is some sort of material misrepresentation in their taking out the policy. But, at renewal ... rates can be jacked up considerably or the company can choose to not renew a policy. Generally, I can't see a policy for a park not being renewed unless there is a pattern of behavior that increases risk and exposure. As I'd mentioned before ... I can not believe that this one was permitted to go to trial. In the long run, this could ultimately become very expensive for the park and the chain ... something far beyond the monetary damages awarded in this trial.
  3. Yes. Actually, the answer to that question is confidential. The park MAY be totally self-insured. No reference to an insurance policy for this has been seen in public documents in recent years.... ahhhhhh...ok ......even if there was insurance involvement.....holy cow i wonder what the deductible would be per claim? If the park was insured for such an issue that is not as much of a hit for the insurance company. Now granted, it's not fun to write out a check in those amounts .... but if it's the parks as a whole ... it's a hefty chunk. The one thing that is pretty evident is that this will have an effect on SOB and it's operation or lack there of.
  4. Yes. Actually, the answer to that question is confidential. The park MAY be totally self-insured. No reference to an insurance policy for this has been seen in public documents in recent years.... Yes, but rarely are any insurance companies mentioned in any trials. Usually, the only time the issue comes up is in bad faith matters.
  5. Considering the potential severity of a catastrophic ride failure, a self insured park could be wiped out by one very bad incident. I, too, do not think that they lenders would allow the parks to be fully self insured.
  6. Or Cedar Fair has a policy that it does not settle any case that it feels is not totally meritorious. Or the insurance company, and not Cedar Fair, is calling the shots. In bad publicity alone, the park may end up paying far more than any recovery the plaintiff may get. On the other hand, if the plaintiff loses her case, the remaining case from the noted 2006 incident may very quickly settle...or not. I've not been able to track down who insures CF. I can't imagine they are self insured. (That would be very unwise.)
  7. Can't believe this was not settled before going to court. Either this attorney has very poor client control or the park was not wise. Either way, this is a matter that should have never reached the court.
  8. While I'm happy to see that In-Bev will no longer be in control of the Busch Parks; it really is to early to say how Blackstone will be. I do know enough that when a company comes in and says, "We're going to retain the management team and to there will not be layoffs," that you had better get your resumes ready.
  9. Which is one of the disappointing things. We'll probably never see a show as advanced as That's Entertainment or Celebration.
  10. My Gosh. There are hundreds. Salt Water Circus, Rock Around The Clock, That's Entertainment, Celebration (The Best Show Ever Produced By Any Park, Ever), Can't Stop The Music, I Believe in Country, Caribbean Serenaders, Kings of Komedy, International Air Show, City Rhythm, Apupetsho, Home for the Holidays, Encore, Festival of Fire (Stationary Fireworks up and Down the Tower and Lining the Royal Fountain), Bear Facts, Yogi's Picnic, Belly Up to the Bar - Belles, Grin n Bear It, Carribean Steel Drum Band, In Concert, World Cabaret, I Believe in Country, Rock & Roll Explosion, Smurfs are Coming, Yogi's Cavalcade of Christmas, World of Christmas, Gotta Dance, Country Music Showdown, Can't Stop The Music, Rockin Scooby, Yogi's Puppet Story, The Good Old Days are Back Again, Mimes, Characters, Jugglers, Magicians, Barbershop Quartet & Oom Pah Pah Band. You Gotta remember that at one time there were shows pretty much in all parts of the park. Festhaus always had one or two shows. International Showplace usually had three shows (POP, Country and Character), American Herritage Music Hall always had a major Broadway Style Show, There was a Stage in Columbia Palace, A Stage and Puppet Tree in HB and even a stage for an animal show in WAH.
  11. Even not being a Disney fan ... That's a very cool site.
  12. Yeah, but Screamscape is right much more than they are wrong. And ... Will Admit Errors when made.
  13. So you will take Screamscape's word over BoddaH's? In short, wow... Screamscape announced Diamondback much earlier than Boddah.
  14. One of the best reasons to pray for SOB's removal. <G>
  15. Uhhh, I would say worse than really bad. They say that over 50% of the people in Austell have lost their homes. Many roads ae still closed. We actually are having a sunny day today. This is a nice change.
