Other than Lagoon, there is nothing for hundreds of miles. The area is growing rapidly due to the forthcoming Olympics. S&S, Arrow and Setpoint are all right next door. Lagoon hasn't added a major coaster for 14 years, people around here would flock to any new coaster. We'd even love a Boomerang!
Portland or NYC. I chose Portland because the only major theme parks (i may and probably am wrong) that are close to it are SFMW and Enchanted Village. And NYC because it's the second largest city in the world and all it has is Coney Island (I'm not saying it's bad but NYC needs a steelie).

What about Louisiana? We need some parks, too. All of our parks are in the southern part of the state.........so...a new park needs to be somewhere in northern LA maybe around the Shreveport or Bossier area. They've got enough casinos; it's time for an amusement park.

1. NYC has Rye, Playland but you are right about not having any good steel coasters. Too bad it is owned and operated by the Westchester government. I do not think the tax payers would like to spend there tax money on a 12 million B&M masterpeice. They tried a Zamperla one looper last year but took it out because of the excessive g's.
2. If Seattle receives a Six Flags park, Six Flags has themselves a gold mine. (as long as it does not rain every operating day ;))
3. Phoenix, Arizona would also be a great spot for a theme park.
Indianapolis indiana by far. Indianapolis alone could support a big themepark let alone carmel Kokamo and even people from fortwayne would probably drive down. There has though, been several attempts in the last 20 or so years. But nothing has came out of it.
