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

  • Mike makes his way to Mt. Olympus while Pat gets to Holiday World.
  • Is an MTV reality show from a water park a good idea? Does MTV ever play music anymore?
  • Shapiro and Snyder invest in Tom Cruise. Have the Six Flags guys gone nuts?
  • Disney wants to make sure only you use your multi-day tickets, and privacy advocates are really nervous about it.
  • Holiday World announces new stuff, and we're more convinced than ever that Splashin' Safari is one of the best water parks ever.
  • Cedar Point finally announces Maverick, and people surprisingly like it!
  • Log flumes are feeling like an endangered species.
  • Cedar Fair announces attendance and revenue, and it's essentially flat. No way to tell yet if the Cedar Point ticket price drop was good or bad.
  • Check out BooBuzz 2006 at Cedar Point. Exclusive ride time on Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster!

Jeff's avatar I had some file corruption issues, so I just put up the uncut, unprocessed audio.

^ THAT is a rhetorical question, right? LOL!

Side note: Guess who showed up at owner Snyder's luxury box for the Redskins game... ;)

Advice time: Suri, grow up fast, get out soon! :)

Jeff's avatar Yes, I know. It's really hard to find industry news when all of the results get hijacked by that nonsense.
