New Cypress Gardens owner, Kent Buescher, who also owns the successful Wild Adventures theme park in Georgia, plans to invest $35 million in the property during the park's first 12 to 18 months, and another $3 to $5 million for expansion annually. He says the park will create 350 jobs.

I guess the reporter wasn't aware that Dorney had its biggest year ever in 2002. Or that Holiday World (every bit as major) has had one bigger year after another.
"Buescher's Georgia attraction is the only major park in the country to see an increase in visitors since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks."
Not that it matters, because I wish the best of success to the park and its owner. I'm just bothered by journalists that forget the 101 class where they tell you never to use a superlative unless you're damn sure it's true.
gator, attracting no jobs, but LOTS of fun! ;)
