  1. Things To Do In Ohio | Sandusky Events | Cedar Point This will be quite interesting to attend. Top Thrill 2 Passholder Preview April 30 - May 2, 2024 More details to follow…..
  2. Replacing carousel animals with bulldozers? In PETA's method of thinking: Wouldn't that promote construction which takes away from an animal's natural habitat?
  3. Many rumors have been mentioned about this land. https://sanduskyregister.com/news/489398/cedar-point-reveals-plans-for-site/
  4. Son of Phantom Theatre All joking aside, looking at the previous attractions in that space, BBoBH is overdue for a refurbishment.
  5. I am not a finance person but I don't believe it as bad as it looks. Things are still balancing out post-pandemic. 2022 was such a massive increase in net revenue to top those #'s would have been quite staggering. Below is the 2022 2Q results with 2021 & 2019 results. Second Quarter 2022 Highlights Net revenues totaled a record $509 million, an increase of $285 million from the second quarter of 2021. Compared to the second quarter of 2019, net revenues increased by $73 million, or 17%. Net income was $51 million, an increase of $110 million from the second quarter of 2021. Compared to the second quarter of 2019, net income decreased by $13 million. Adjusted EBITDA(1) totaled $171 million, an increase of $169 million from the second quarter of 2021. Compared to the second quarter of 2019, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $7 million, or 5%. Attendance totaled 7.8 million guests, an increase of 4.4 million guests from the second quarter of 2021. Compared to the second quarter of 2019, attendance declined by 654,000 guests, or 8%. In-park per capita spending was a record $59.52, a 6% increase from the second quarter of 2021. Compared to the second quarter of 2019, in-park per capita spending increased 26%, driven by double-digit percentage increases across all key revenue categories. Out-of-park revenues were a record $60 million, representing a $19 million increase from the second quarter of 2021. Compared to the second quarter of 2019, out-of-park revenues increased by $10 million, or 21%.
  6. It absolutely was- probably why I'm not in marketing. Someone at Zamperla gonna get put in timeout!
  7. ^ It should be noted that I never said it wasn't Zamperla, just the screenshot was a hoax.
  8. My gut tells me the "screenshot" yesterday of the Zamperla website is a total hoax. Top Thrill 2? CP has been VERY reluctant to acknowledge the ride formerly known as TTD other than new promotional video of the ride & the new formula for thrills. Using TTD in any variation would be like KI using "Beast" in another coaster name. Tomorrow will be fun and will hopefully move on from a very dark time in CP's history. I highly doubt we will hear about the future settlement or result of the lawsuit against CP & hope the victim from a couple years ago gets everything +more.
  9. With Fury being in it's 9th year of operation, I'm leaning more toward a metal fatigue issue than design issue- mind you I have zero engineering design experience but do deal with metals. Metal fatigue is tricky- kind of like a crack in a dam- it takes a while to show up but once it starts the end is coming quick! If Fury is "repaired" with a large sleeve-like device welded over the cracked area it's likely fatigue. If Fury is down until new support shows and new footer is poured- it was a design flaw.

    Consult your Dr. before anyone else.
  11. https://www.yourerie.com/news/waldameer-owner-paul-nelson-dies/ He was a fixture in Erie for decades and turned Waldameer into a very nice amusement park for Erie. One of the best moves he made was selling the old carousel fixtures in the 80's which generated much needed cash for the park which Mr. Nelson used to reinvest into the park & the early stages of Water World. It turned everything around. There have been numerous videos of Mr. Nelson over the years. I one of them he comments how he has never had to "work" a day in his life. He will be missed by the Erie amusement & Erie community.
  12. IG was testing in July 2021 but opening was pushed to March 2022 due to Covid (perhaps RMC learned a bit from the difficulties with SV at CP??). There were a few soft opening dates passholders were able to enjoy in February 2022.
  13. ^ I'm guessing that testing has gone well & the two weeks is for: additional testing, inspection, training new employees and polishing up the area.
