Hart's apparently required to spend $1.5 million a year on upgrades. The greater expense to get it up and running initially only means a few less new flat rides in 2014....I hope he can make this park successful again.
I admire his determination. Or is it utterly irrational obsession? Hard to tell at this point.
Either way...I admire it.
As bummed as I am when a park closes, I am just as happy when a park reopens or new parks come in to being, so this pleases me. I'm rooting for success!
