Which do you think needs a theme park more?

Arizona, or Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas *is* a theme park.

I have heard that they are taking a lot of the family things out of las vegas, so wouldn't it make sence if they just built a theme park there to make up for the loss, or would it just make more sence to build one in Arizona, since they have nothing and a lot of people visit there. Plus it could be open year round, so long as there are enough misters?

Yes that makes sense - they're taking the "family" out of Vegas, so let's build an amusement park focused on family in Vegas because that's going to be something people will want to come to Vegas for ...

What about Arizona, they don't have an amusement park at all?
Thursday, December 30, 2004 10:50 AM
They don't? Have you checked to make sure of that?

Are you talking about castles and coasters, lame, I would call that an amusement park if it was the last one on earth.

It doesn't matter what you'd call Castles & Coasters or how lame it is, it's an amusement park in Arizona, so to make the claim that the state "doesn't have one at all" is incorrect.

Heh Moosh, sometimes I think that you need to put in your sig as well;)

Something about "Atlantis has Arizona" that sounds kind of dumb. ;)

...or is this not related to the other thread?

"Last time you got soaking wet, now it's dry as hell - Atlantis: The Rebirth!"

Maybe I should have said Theme park, Arizona does not have a theme park. Happy now Mamoosh. Two steel rollercoaster is hardly enough to say Arizona has been fullfilled. Arizona has tons of tourists that come here plus all of the snowbirds and their families, that come to visit in the winter. If there was a park here I think that it would definately benefit the state, no matter what the theme of it was.

About it being Atlantis, what does it matter, I would rather have that theme, then something about the desert or some other crap.

"We spent our water budget at the other park, so enjoy the dry heat!"

"Revenge of Atlantis: Didn't like all that water? Try NO WATER! Muhahahahaha" (must have the Muhahahaha in the name, otherwise it's so lame you might as well rename Castles and Coasters with it ...)

You could even have a third park in Alaska - "Atlantis: Preserved!", or "Atlantis: No water, no heat, no visitors!"

Tigger, most folks go to parks during the summer. Ever been to Phoenix in the summer?

I guess they could build an indoor park...

Tigger - Actually Arizona has a Wild West theme park but the park has no rides. A theme park, by definition, does not necessarily have to have rides, just a theme. But I digress....

I never said two steel coasters was enough fulfill Arizona, and I agree with you that Castles and Coasters is pretty lame. Don't get angry with me because I pointed out your statement was incorrect. If your point is that Arizona needs a bigger or better theme or amusement park than Castles & Coasters then say it from the get-go.

And I wholeheartedly agree with you...Phoenix is one of the largest metro areas I can think of without a substantial LARGE theme or amusement park close by. Having lived there myself I think there is a need but obviously there are huge obstacles to overcome besides the heat or one probably would have been built in the area already.

But we can hope! Maybe that's where I'll build Mooshland when I get rich ;)

It doesn't get much hotter in Phoenix, then it does at SFMM. Plus if most of your qeue lines would be inside, instead of mostly misters. I think that people wouldn't mind going. Food, shade, inside lines, lots of great rides, what sounds better?

But you could have great ride names like, Heat Stroke, Sun Poisoning and Melanoma at an Arizona park.

Not sure how to tie those into an Atlantis theme, but then again, that's not my job is it? :)

You guys are hillarious!!!! You really now how to over exaggerate. It is not that bad, if you are a good enough designer, you should be able to figure out how to beat the heat. Right?

My grandparents have a second home in Phoenix and my family visits them every year in the summer. Let me tell you, it is hotter than hell in "the valley of the sun." I don't think a sixflags type themepark would work, maybe in the fall and winter, but not in the summer.

By the way, the Phoenix area has Rawhide, which is an awesome western-themed "town" complete with gunshows, mazes, and shops. Not to mention the awesome steaks at the resturants. Rawhide has become a tradition for my family.

Phoenix may have a rather large population, but I doubt it would be enough to sustain a larg(er) theme park. I also don't think the winter visitors would be likely to be hitting up a park, they are there for WINTER sports, not coaster riding.

"But its a dry heat..."

(first words of most kids in Arazona)
