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

  • X-Flight reborn as Firehawk at Kings Island. Weird!
  • The Ohio parks are connected in terms of how they scan season passes. Six Flags is doing some clever things with season passes as well.
  • The rumor about Harry Potter coming to Islands of Adventure keeps getting stronger. What would it mean for the park?
  • Conneaut Lake is still not getting any help. They're trying to raise money by selling old tokens.
  • The Simpsons are replacing Back to The Future at the Universal Studios parks. We hope they're going to replace the motion base.
  • Mike clears up any confusion about what a churro is.
  • Dorney wants to build a "LIM coaster" that we assume is Geauga Lake's Steel Venom. Dorney is sweet.
  • Anaheim mayor sides with Disney over the low-cost housing. Mike tells us how Chicago handles the issue of affordable housing.
  • Euro Disney still losing money, but less than before.
  • A big conversation ensues about big corporations versus small business. Mike loves himself some Target, and we hate Wal-Mart.
  • Don't forget that the deadline is approaching for Chocolate Buzz. Register today!

Damn Gonch, How can you prefer Dorney over Hershey? That is pretty strange to me, but hey we thats why we have our opinion.

Too bad I live close to Hershey Jeff because I know a lot of landscapers to take care of your bush!! :) Gonch where is your mind at?

Lord Gonchar's avatar In the gutter as usual. ;)

I usually shut up about Hershey because anyone who questions the order of 'good' and 'bad' parks tends to get a beatdown. I don't hate Hershey, but I certainly don't love it.
