Why am I not surprised? Those of you who have been to this park may understand. The park has a simplicity that contributes to its nostalgia. I'm not so sure that nostalgia is there on purpose. That same simplicity is probably a factor in these OSHA violations.

That's the nicest way I can explain my opinion about this.

The fine could be more than what they make in a year...

Yeah. My one and only visit was in the late 90's and even then it felt like I needed a tetanus shot after leaving.

The park started looking a lot better in the mid-00's once they tore down the TBolt Express and cleaned up the landscaping. They even added many new attractions.

I am not completely shocked, though. I was just hoping their financial troubles were behind them.
