Maybe that's why JR is pulling out of CP. Think about it: CP & SF can't have the same stuff.

ROFL!

freewebs or any other free host hardly counts as "having a website" especially since you can't actually post pictures (you have to hot link, which is very NOT COOL when it comes to web design). Try getting a server (even a hosted one) and paying for a domain. iPowerWeb or GoDaddy is a decent place to start until your bandwidth needs expand.

^ Since Six Flags owner Dan Snyder bought out Johnny Rockets.

Now, from a financial stand-point...what does Snyder do? Continue to let Cedar Point and Knott's (which is home to the largest Johnny Rockets franchise in the world in terms of square-footage) continue to operate these restaurants and collect the franchise fees from Cedar Fair? Or does he pull the rug out from beneath Cedar Fair and strictly make Six Flags the official parks to operate Johnny Rockets restaurants?

Time will tell!

I haven't heard/seen any news stories that Johnny Rockets was leaving CP. If they're out there, can someone please post a link for me?

All I've heard so far is speculation from people who don't seem to understand that Six Flags did not buy Johnny Rockets. Dan Snyder did. There's nothing that says CF can't (or won't) keep Johnny Rockets, or even add new ones. People buy shares in (aka "own") competing companies all the time - I recall seeing several posts on here from people who own Six Flags and Cedar Fair stock. Why wouldn't Dan Snyder be able to own an amusement park and a restaurant without them taking his restaurant out of another amusement park? To me it would make more sense to encourage the restaurants in other parks to maximize his profit!! The restaurant revenue never makes it anywhere near the amusement park's money books. It goes to Dan's bottom line, and that's it. He could just as easily sell Six Flags to Disney and hold on to Johnny Rockets.

Cedar Point is a peninsula, not an island.

^^^^No, you need more space to prepare that chicken then in the Johnny Rockets site. In the early 1990's, they tried a series of Mrs. Knott's restaurants in So Cal, and they all bombed. The chicken never tasted the same.

Anyhow, Ruby's is the same concept as JR's and could be replaced fairly easily, providing they got the franchise rights.

I thought they would have added the Chicken Dinner Restaurant years ago when Cedar Fair purchased Knott's, but it wouldn't be able to be in a space the size of the Johnny Rockets.

If JR's is pulled out of CP, there's plenty of restaurants that can fill it's space. One thing Ohio is not lacking in it's restaurant chains and burger places any of which could do as well as JR's.

For starters, how about Skyline chili or something like that? Maybe Marco's pizza?
