^NJ recently announced "Xanadu" is getting a new name and a facelift.

One might consider Legoland Florida to be a new park.


Whatever became of the plans to build that theme park near Wheeling WV? You know, the one where they were going to lop off an entire mountain to build the park that looked exactly like the one that was going to be built in one of the mid-western states a few years before that.

That was the Cabela's park, right? Some outdoor outfitter, pretty sure Cabela's. And the main coaster, IIRC, was a M-S X-Coaster. I think that project got scrapped right as the economy started hitting the skids (not skid brakes).

There's a discussion of that proposed park on the site somewhere, but I understand it's in limbo. I doubt it'll happen anytime soon.

I read somewhere that the Orlando area thrill park is pretty much dead.


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

So, maybe that would be a good spot for the Euthanasia Coaster...

RGB, there was a recent article about the new park near Wheeling. I forget exactly what it said, but if I recall correctly, it said that the local government was saying that the project was dead, but the owner guy wasn't talking like it was.


Funny you should ask, AOL showed Noah's Ark Theme Park, coming to Kentucky. Bring on the "flood" of comments. This thread should last for 40 days, and 40 nights now.
