I've been out of the country and was waiting to hear the news Cedar Fair promised after the deal closed on April 1, 2004. But since I've been back, I've found NOTHING! If anyone has found any info, names, updates, PHOTOS, ect. help us out! I hope everyone is as excited as I am about May 1!
Cedar Fair was aiming for April 1 but I do not believe it was actually promised. The deal will close in time. $145 million between two publicly traded companies may take a little longer then expected. Things are moving ahead at the park, season pass information will be available soon.
I'm no genious but I'd think the first place to look would be on the CB news page. If nothing has been posted in the last few weeks my guess is that there isn't any news yet. If there was an announcement you'd find a rather large discussion happening.
I don't think that scenario will play out. Even if the deal does not go through, the park can still open and SF can salvage something. This park will not just sit idle. Cedar point will purchase or SF will open it this year.
ROFL, jeremy....you're a hoot, and I would LOVE to do a PTI wit' ya...:)
P.S. Emmitt, from Escambia County AND from UF....is at least the best running back SINCE Sweetness....apologies to the Sanders guy, he just didn't stick around long enough...;)
As for me being the better-looking one, I figured it was *understood* that that was a joke...heck, I even included one of these..;)
Back *towards* the topic....I do *still* want an Intamin launch of SOME kind here in the Southeast...not that I'm ungrateful for the Vekoma and Beema launches we HAVE...they're just not that intense...

That's ram-a-lam-a-ham-dam ;).
I wouldn't expect the wait to be much longer. I really don't think Cedar Fair would offer Six Flags $145 Million, say the deal is going down, and just back out, although I am no business expert. You would have thought the deal was finalized when Six Flags' stock price skyrocketed...

Okay josh, you got me, I *never* watched a day of Dream Job. I just caught the SportsCenter the day after he got cut and heard him do the ram-a...(whatever). And the real SC guy (D.Patrick I think) made a special note of it, so I just assumed it was his usual catch phrase.
And believe you me, the SF/CF deal *will* go through...Patience "Daniel-san"
