How ironic that Cedar fair owns a park whose theme is trees and gardens. I hope the place doesn't become Bonfante Concrete Gardens.

They don't own the park... they manage it. The park itself is a non-profit.

In that case...

The only thing worse would be if they slapped down some outdated rides in a field somewhere in the woods in the middle of nowhere, tossed a bit of dirt and gravel around for makeshift walkways, used standing dilapidated buildings for facilities and then tried to sell it as 'charm' ;)

Star Trek: The Experience is also now listed on the map at CedarFair.com

I always assumed that, the Paramount Parks are the real meat of the deal, and CF would distance themselves from Bonfante and ST:TE as soon as they could *** Edited 7/21/2006 6:44:52 PM UTC by Arson***

Aren't you forgetting about a bunch of elfin pinwheels, Gonch?

Ahhh, that's right!

Add, "stuck a handful of dollar store elfin pinwills in the ground for theme" to that.

Nice the way you knew I had WG in mind. Either you're psychic or my description was uncannily accurate. :)

I thought you were knocking Snoozefest. ;)

This is probably good news. At least someone wants to continue on with the park. I think Paramount is running the park well (clean park, friendly staff) and I have a feeling CF will continue with the status quo. I just wonder if it will be a long time for new additions to the park.

I like to think a little of both ;)

Nah. Snoozefest isn't dilapidated in any way and their pathways are well defined and many are paved.

I'm pretty certain this has to do with the same reason the Paramount name was added back on, just to keep things as is for the remainder of 06' (BG still has to honor the PGA passes and such until at least the end of this season).

Next year is when PP's management contract with BG expires, at which time I doubt CF or BG will renew. With Michael Bonfante spending the last 4yrs in Branson, selling his Zierer Flying Carpet to Celebration City, as well as donating Circus Trees to CC, I'm crossing my fingers that this connection is not just a coincidence. Hoping he's actually been out there training with HFEC for the last 4 yrs on the right way to run a quality family park all on his own.

And have someone take tons of pictures of it all to post on a website. :)
