Not to the ride side of the park they havn't. I'm going to move on alright & simply won't patronize the park any longer & will just stick with a once a year trip to KD instead.

2003 was the last Dry side addition to SFA with the waste of space PBR. 2001 was the last major ride with Wing of the Bat. *** Edited 10/4/2007 3:19:22 PM UTC by TSC 2007***

True, but La Ronde gets 1.2 millions visitors a year and the park needs more capacity! On a busy day, you got 4 hours waits for Vampire, 2 hours for Goliath, the Wild Mouse, kiddy coaster, etc. Even a small flat ride to replace the Huss Discoround (Disco Ronde that removed this year) would have been good for 2008.

That's a pathetic attendance, and I don't believe you saying about 4 hour waits. It just doesn't make sense. They have 9 coasters along with that attendance and it being open ALL year just doesn't make sense. On top of that, that's Batman the Ride. No Batman the Ride gets that long of a wait unless they aren't running two trains.

Than, the most I can see it is at 2 hours with one train, and this is a 5 year old coaster on top of it. I think that park should be sold just based on attendance. They wanted to sell SFMM getting over 2 milion, and here we have this park which is only gettin 1.2 million, and it's open every single day of the year!

^Open all year?

Isn't La Ronde an outdoor park and is in Canada? I wouldn't patronize a Canadian park in the winter months.

My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

Seriously though, if SF were *my* chain, SFA would be getting the Mack mouse that SFNE and SFGAm are getting, while SFGAdv would be getting something a little more...special (along with the hotel that seems to have died on the vine).

Seriously, though, no major flat-ride additions? What gives?

So, Gator, there is this little amusement park in Maryland. You interested in investing? ;) *** Edited 10/4/2007 5:38:47 PM UTC by coasterguts***

A day at the park is what you make it!

rollergator's avatar Are you referring to Adventure Park USA, or whatever might be left of Trimper's/O.C. shore parks after the tax man comes around?

Either way, I know MD pretty well, having spent a century or two on the Eastern Shore during my adolescence...and truly, there is NOTHING good that can come from driving those shore parks out of business. Why do I feel like THAT lesson has been lost to O.C., when there's such an enormous pile of evidence showing that destroying your seaside park in the name of "growth" is a short-term solution that causes long-term problems...

Speaking of which, has anyone seen the deserted lot where Miracle Strip used to stand? :(

^Actually, I was refering to a certain SF park.

rollergator's avatar LOL, actually got to meet Terry P. on the August mega-trip. Nice guy from what I gathered...probably could use a shorter leash for his employees though - they are lazy beyond description, and the concept of customer service is completely foreign to them.

Managing people requires a carrot AND a stick...maybe Terry only passes out carrots (there HAS to be a Bugs Bunny joke in there somewhere)... ;)
