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

Also, there are only two parks, and one being a waterpark. I don't see how it's going to become the next Disney World. Look at Universal Studios. That's way off too, and that's right by it. I think a lot of people have heard about Universal. Also, remember that one park over there isn't a waterpark.
I believe that resort calibear equals multiple attractions, and not just a theme, and a water park. I don't see Cedar Point as a resort destination like Cedar Point. If they would add another park, then it could be. The more parks, the more people, and the more out of towners.
For the coaster poll, why is it skewed if you don't like a roller coaster. I don't like Goliath at SFMM, or Raging Bull and thus it would bring those down. Raging Bull is a complete bore to me. It might not be the worst coaster, but I know a lot of people that love it. I absolutely don't. I haven't voted in this poll, but it just depends on what you like, and what you don't.
My favorite ride is Deja Vu, and for some enthusiasts in line, they said that's it. They acted like they didn't like it at all. I didn't think that Millenium Force is good at all. It's Raging Bull a 100 feet higher. What's the difference? I don't see it. Revenge of the Mummy is 31??? That was boring. How is Deja Vu that low? There is no way in my mind it should be. It's 177 for SFGAm. Are you kidding me? It's different opinions. I've been on one of the top 3, and it stunk (in my opinion).
So, I don't see how it's skewed if it gets a bad rating. Maybe, they just didn't like it. We all have different opinions. I bet there is a grouping that rates every Cedar Point coaster above any other just because it's Cedar Point, and Universal, and so on.
My top 5 steel are completely different:
Deja Vu, Batman The Ride, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Mr. Freeze, Top Thrill Dragster
^How many of them are in the top 50?*** This post was edited by Ilovthevu' 1/1/2007 8:30:41 PM ***
They also had that one Cedar Point Season Pass Day at Geauga Lake... which I thought was sucessful. Maybe they could sell like a 2 day pass for Cedar Point and Geauga Lake....
Was that not the reason they bought Geauga Lake? So why not market them together?
