The 9th Annual Golden Ticket Awards, often called the "Academy Awards of the Amusement Industry," will be presented Sunday, August 27, at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari. Representatives from Cedar Point, Dollywood, Kings Island, Legoland, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, and Six Flags will be among the attendees hoping to bring home a Golden Ticket Award following Sunday's ceremony
Is the GP involved in any way?
I guess if you have the GP doing this it would not be as good. Then again, their opinions do count. Be interesting to see them picking rides and parks and food. :-/
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

It is the readers of Amusement Today magazine.
That is a common misconception. The surveys were sent to a database of experienced and well-traveled amusement park fans from around the world. Some are subscribers, but many (perhaps most) are not, and not all subscribers get a survey. The AT staff has been refining this list over the years, and I can tell you the people who are surveyed really are well-travelled.

Aw man! Do you think this will have any effect on crowds that day? We've thrown together a last minute trip to HW on that day.
Besides the industry people who are coming, I know of perhaps 20-30 people making special trip just for Golden Ticket ceremony. I don't think that will have any effect on the crowds.
Technically, every voting poll that exists is a biased picks.
Oh, BTW I got a Golden Ticket survey, however, I failed to fill it out, and return it. I've been getting the survey for about 3 years now, and this is the 1st time I failed to respond. Hopefully, this won't take me out of consideration for next years poll.
Joan Rivers, after all, has the Emmys to cover that evening.
Dental Plan! Lisa Needs Braces.
I said the same thing at another forum. Bahari River is so huge, yet empty and uneventful. I felt led to believe that the river itself would be like Hubba Hubba Highway at Water Country USA, (which is a very high-powered lazy river that's current drug me, (at 220lbs.) right down the river), that ride was awesome! BR? Not so much.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I truly believe the purpose of BR was to make a themed overflow area for the waterpark. That place can get very cramped at times, and BR would give the crowds more space to spread out. I don't think the Koch's are quite done with that area yet though. I think it'll get more activities added to it to really liven it up.
