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

The details from Universal's order page:
Plus, for a limited time, when you buy a 2-Day ticket you get:
- One FREE ticket valid for children ages 3-9 with every 2-Day ticket purchased online, valid for a total of five (5) consecutive days of admission (if child is over 52 inches tall, then valid proof of age is required)
You'll note that we just barely touched on this idea a couple of podcasts back when we hit on the 'weight/size issues' thread that was exploding in the forums.
I mean, giving mom and dad 5 days, but only offering the kids free ticket for one day seems like such an SF thing to do. :)
It might be no harm to add someone to the podcast who is knowledgeable about rides and parks outside of the United States. If memory serves the discussion at the time centered on "is this a good fit for the park" which, from three Americans, felt just a little shallow.
Just my 0.02 euro :)
I'd like to think I add a little bit when I manage to show up (which admittedly isn't very regularly ;) ). However, I'm certainly not an encyclopedia of knowledge, either. There's a big difference between "Oh yeah, I was there once, like 6 years ago..." and someone who really knows the park(s).
It seemed like a good idea. Did you get any actual worthwhile questions.
I know I have so much room to talk, as I sent so many.
The problem is exactly what I feared, and the reason I resisted doing a podcast early on: There just isn't enough going on regularly to keep it interesting. You could easily transplant this year's news to almost any other news and you'd find the same basic stories over and over again. The only thing really new this year is the acquisitions and take-overs, and even those are wait-and-see situations.
