Looking good. I think that was the biggest hurdle they had to overcome. :-)

Agreed. Now I'm more concerned about the inaugural summer under the Kochs. With the already common knowledge that an opening season in 2014 will be sans many rides and all the major coasters, the park might be lucky to see half its (previously reasonable) predicted attendance. The potential is there for fiscal disaster.

OTOH they have 2 years to gear up a marketing campaign--and I assume it will mention free Pepsi.

I think it was for 2013 that it was mentioned there would be limited rides and no coasters. We don't know what a 2014 opening will bring. Maybe its a good thing, for us as guests, that it's taking longer than expected to clear some hurdles

That was some short lived optimism. I just contributed it for news.

I might have made it if I didn't bother contributing to news first, and then also posting it in the wrong topic. :-)

Premature pissilation. I think there's a pill that can help with those symptoms.

Speed isn't everything Gonch. Or, that's what I keep telling myself anyway. ;-)
