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

  • Conneaut Lake shows signs of survival.
  • Animal Kingdom prepares to open Expedition Everest.
  • Six Flags and the case of the Official Fruit.
  • The Cedar Point hype for 2007 has already begun. What's up with that?
  • Survivor the Ride? You've got to be kidding.
  • Six Flags New England gets some Astroworld hand-me-downs.
  • Shapiro says that Six Flags America might be worth more for sale. Future uncertain.
  • Paramount Parks are for sale. It's a non-story that the various players might be interested.
  • Great Wolf posts loss. You ever notice how you never realize what you have in your own backyard?

LOL! I am teaching kids about the "Radio Voice" in a communication processes class this week. Good podcast this week! By the way the pictures of the Voyage do not do it justice. That thing looks awesome from the road and it will look even better up close!

Do you realize that when you buy a '1 night package' at an indoor waterpark, it includes 2 days at the waterpark and the overnight hotel stay? Typically, you get to enjoy the watepark from 12noon till closing on the day you arrive, and all day of the day of your hotel departure (typically 9 or 10am until closing 10pm)

I just took 10 of us up to Castaway Bay for a different offering - a birthday celebration for 3 of the kids, and another 7 of us also going for the trip. It cost me $250 for our group for all day at the park, and a 2 hour birthday party, where Castaway Bay supplied the pizza, drinks, chips, and the birthday room.

Normally, I goto indoor waterparks for the 2day/1night package, but even just getting out of my area, and heading to Sandusky for some fun was worth it.

Being able to enjoy a wave pool and the waterslides during these long months of winter was just what we needed, and the added benefit of an indoor watercoaster was a plus.

I've now been to Splash Lagoon (Erie, PA) as well as Kalahari & Castaway Bay in Sandusky during the past several years, and each of them have their advantages and disadvantages. I do know that I will continue to visit these indoor waterparks as much as possible for many years to come.

It's not 'just a pool' as many may think, and is truly a weatherproof atmosphere of fun for the entire family.
