On the Holiday World homepage it said to tune into Discovery channel on July 1st to see Legend and the Raven. Maybe they are on these shows?
Are those times in eastern or what?

Do any of you know if they will re-show that 3 hour roller coaster special they had on the discorvery channel about 3 weeks ago?
BGW and PKD rock!

I thought that was a couple of different shows? I'm really looking foward to these, since I won't be getting to any of the big parks this year -- only 1 or 2 new coasters for me! :(

So is that eastern time or western time or both?
Life is like a coaster---
You go up, down, turn-around, and upside-down...and then there's all that pressure on your head, too...

Looks good! Although some of them are re-runs.. most of those like like there are new!
(correct me if I am wrong, but Worlds Best Thrill Parks, Americas best water parks are old ones right?)
The lineup is looking good! (reminds me of my trip to Vegas... :)

Saturday, June 23, 2001 6:19 PM
Does this mean they are going to show all parks like Valleyfair or Worlds Of Fun?
Sunday, June 24, 2001 4:42 AM
Id "World's Largest Parks" about Cedar Point or Disney World?
Sunday, June 24, 2001 8:06 AM
Largest parks will be about Cedar Point
Sunday, June 24, 2001 10:18 AM
I don't remember Cedar Point being the world's largest theme park!
Sunday, June 24, 2001 8:28 PM
Cedar Point, I'm shocked!!??
How about a show that goes under cover at smaller parks to get them out into the "Bigger" parks. Hasen't everyone seen enough of CP. How About SFGAdv, SFGAm, SFWoF, SFoG, and some of the smaller parks that never get as much air-time. But what can I do about it.
There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people.

I thought that many parks were bigger than Cedar Point. I remember reading that SFWoA is 750 acres and Cedar Point is only 364 or something like that.

By largest Amusement Park, they are talking number of rides, and possibly popularity. Yes, the show is all about Cedar Point. They filmed some of my buds at Happy Friar! Look for them on the show!
