I wonder if the kid that answered the question had any idea what or where HW is, or just answered the question based on the info in the question?

Calista Flockhart: "What is... Febturday?"
Alex Trebek: "No."
Sean Connery: "She said 'turd'!"
Alex Trebek: "I hate you! The answer was February. That's the month that starts with Feb. It was last month!"

I would guess the latter ... someone who was "into" park surely would have chosen the Theme Park Fun category early on in the game.

Instead, the contestants chose "Vice Presidents," "Fast Food" and "Cities in Countries" (or something like that) first.

If Frank were a park freak (oh, excuse me: park fan) I think he would have zoomed in on Theme Park Fun straight up.

Gobbler -> turkey -> Thanksgiving. Jeopardy realy doesn't require you to have in-depth knowledge of any specific topic, but it DOES make you think quickly in terms of putting two and two together...

And seriously, making the questions "harder" just means that no one would be able to answer them. It's not like the planet is FILLED with coaster geeks... ;)

Since the category was Theme Park FUN, I suppose there were no questions/answers about SF included. :)

Were they any questions about CP in there?

Honestly, aside from "Classical Literature" type catagories, the majority of Jeopardy qeustions (answers) are quite simple. The Final Jeopardy answers (questions) are always the most obvious response. Basically, if you know anything at all about the subject, whatever your first guess is, is usually right. If it wasn't for that dame literature, I truely belive I could make that show and do well.

...as long as there are no penalties for misspellings ;)

If the category was Theme Park FUN, it should have been all about Cedar Fair properties, margins, and profit/loss. Or maybe I need to stop looking at my stocks so much... ;)
