Jeff, Pat, Greg and Mike review this week's news in the amusement industry.

  • Paramount's Kings Island says they'll do Winterfest again next season.
  • Camp Snoopy no more, as Mall of America lets their Peanuts license slip.
  • Disney parks in Orlando have record holiday season. Is this the return of pre-9/11 tourism or really good marketing?
  • Six Flags chief says new rides aren't the key to boosting attendance, making things family friendly are.
  • There's no way of telling if all of the talk from the new Six Flags regime will be successful so we have to wait and see.
  • While temporary, some Six Flags parks momentarily said they would not allow re-entry into their parks. What the hell were they thinking?
  • Is "classism" a factor in pricing admission to the amusement parks?
  • Six Flags success going forward will depend on the perception of real value.

This is not showing up on Itunes as being downloadable yet. Not sure if you need to do something to get it to show up in Itunes.

EDIT: It is there now finally.

I enjoyed the Six Flags commentary as I too am a skeptic as it comes to the recent news items...
