Okay, this is sooooo weird! Oasis is just a cool place I hang out at during the summer when I go to Palm Springs. I can't believe Cedar Fair owns it! Crazy! I hope they keep the laid back atmosphere there, because it's never too crowded and just a great place to hang out.

Cedar Fair will never become another six flags. They are much more low key and family run than the corporate nature of six flags. But of course, Cedar Fair can still deliver!

Cedar Fair turning into Six Flags. I don't think so. Well they haven't largly cloned coasters and gave them the same name yet.

Even though I am a bit biased because I live close to Cedar Point, it seems that every park Cedar Fair operates does very well and is popular with the guests. I think the people of Palm Springs will be very happy with the acquisition.

I think this is great, but I also think that Cedar Fair needs to concentrate on its other parks a little more. Valleyfair has not gotten a new roller coaster since 1996 when they got Wild Thing. Hopefully they will get an inverted next year like Dorney did this year!

But it's bad, so it doesn't count. And I wouldn't call it a "major" roller coaster, like an inverted or hyper would be.

CF needs to do somthing with KBF. They have some great rides and all but there attendance is only good during Scary Farm. Perioulus Plunge didn't get the responce they needed. IF the rummors are right about a hyper, then maybe they can turn things arround.

Wait until summer. They barely started advertising Perilous Plunge, and it's been very cold! This summer it is going to boost attendance. By the way, I think they are usually fairly full, even surprisingly crowded during the week. Knott's is doing just fine.

I always thought the Palm Springs area was a prime location for any water/amusement park. Too bad we don't see any coasters at this park!

cedar fair gives out rides according to the attendence. They also give them out according to location on how many parks are located around them as for rivals. Valley fair has no real big rivals therefore why do they need to add a huge rollercoaster every year or every other year. The only reason they do this for cedar point is the same reason six flags does it for magic mountain. Magic mountain gets a lot of heat from other parks , It also has the highest attendence and the most profits. don't worry the next few years is going to be a big year for most of cedar fair parks. Profits have build up therefore they are going to add some big rides. Cedar fair actually lets profits build up before they buy rides, and they also don't add a stupid clone every year that totally sucks. That is why their chain is not in major debt
