Jeff, Scott and Pat review this week's news in the amusement industry.
Link: CoasterBuzz Podcast
Another excellent podcast guys! I found the RCT portion to be interesting; I didn't know that Chris Sawyer programmed the game(s) all by himself. For somethign that popular nowadays that truly is amazing and he deserves recognition and compensation for that.
My daughter, my mom and I went to Castaway Bay in Sandusky last Thursday. At a cost of $99 which included the room and up to 4 admissions to the waterpark for 2 days, I'd say it was a good value. Now during peak summer months that same room can run $249 or higher. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't pay that when we could go to GL, which we have season passes for and is closer to home (Pgh area).
I personally wouldn't want to go to an indoor waterpark during the summer (unless it's one of those crappy rainy summers). But I guess people in the south could possibly welcome an indoor waterpark during the summer. It is so hot and humid in some areas of the south that I'm not even sure an outdoor waterpark could be refreshing.
BTW, Castaway Bay was pretty cool and I would go back even though Splash Lagoon in Erie is closer.
And Jeff and LG, I'm an ex-Moon Twp. peep, does that count?;)
Brett (impulse-ive) lives and/or lived here too.
Just want to comment on the lastest podcast...about the new ad company for Cedar Point and Geauge Lake. I don't know how any one could forget about the ad that Cedar Point Ran "There ain't no time for the summer time blues..." that is the ad that sticks out for me.....Thanks for your time
Great, now I won't be able to get it out of my head!

Gonch, agreed about the Geauga Lake marketing...
Good. :) I always feel awkward stating an opinion for an entire city, the best I can do is pass along how it seems to me. In this case perhaps I nailed it.
