Interview with Gary Story (CEO of Six Flags Inc)

Interview with Daniel Keller (GM of Cedar Point)

and pictures for Day 1 on the floor!!!

As soon as Jeff gets back - hopefully we can move the thread to news where it belongs - but until now enjoy the updates! (There will be more soon)

Great articles & coverage,although so far it's not as extensive as last year's show was.

Did anyone see the pic of the coaster car from Pax? if they were to change the restraints just a bit then they may have a product comprable to if not exceeding B&M as far as comfort & smoothness are concerned.

Another display worth pointing out was the modified Polyp ride from Huss,it looks just like all the other ones on the market except for the gondola seating which makes it look like a cross between the polyp & a top spin & I wonder if that ride will ever actually go into development does anyone think it will?

Another nice surprise was that we finally got an interview with Gary Story,if most who were here on the buzz last year recall that was something we were promised but never delivered.

Ahh just what we need some more interesting reading material.

I'll be sure to check out the interview with GCI as well as Gravity Group,being on the east coast I'm not all that interested in HW but I might still read the interview.

I'm also looking forward to seeing some more pics of the show as well,those first pics were rather good but there just wasn't enough of them to really get a good feel for what's being offered this year so if you got more pics then keep em coming.

I have a hard time critizing anyone I don't know about how they do their job... this interview with Gary Story shows me that alot of these so called jerks are more human than we realize.

Tivoli Gardens have a similar ride (Dragen)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Gary Story one of the Six Flags execs that is actually an amusement industry person? He's actually the COO, not the CEO too I believe. The CEO is Kieran Burke and he was an investment banker before becoming Six Flags' president from 1989-1994 and then becoming the CEO.

Gary is the ex-theme park man lured over to the dark side by the sinister cabal of accountants surrounding him.

Yes my bad, he is the COO of Six Flags, a minor type-o. ;)
