Good for them. I really hope this park do very well. Before it was just a place for lazy old people, now everyone can enjoy themselves, not just plants every which way you look.

It will be good when its all done, as Cypress Gardens will nearly become a full day park then, when I was there back in June, I did enjoy it, but there just was'nt enough to warrant a full day there, and the second day free option was just silly when I had done everything in 2-3hrs. However with the water park now, I would probably visit again when I go back to Florida.

I wonder why the waterpark was heavily delayed though, It was meant to open on July 4th(Independance day) and I just knew it was never going to open on that date when I saw the state of the waterpark being built at the time.

Still, It looks like good times ahead for the park(especially with the rumoured 2006 Coaster) and I hope everything goes well for them

The 2006 coaster isn't a rumor, it's for real.
