Not sure I'd want to be in a waterpark being governed by G.I. Jane. Something tells me fun would be out of the question, and if I happen to stare at her too long, there's Joe's kung-fu grip to worry about again.
New for 2008 coaster? Yes, there will be a new coaster in NW PA for 2008 if things go according to plans but it will not be at CLP. That is going to add another challenge for this park because the one thing that CLP had over Waldammer was Blue Streak. Ravine Flyer II changes things dramatically.
The good news it that if the sale closes, the park opens in 2007. Now the challenge will be to market the park in the face of Waldameer's changes.
As for the Dippin' Dots, a portable stand can accommodate this as is the case at some other parks.
I think that this park is pretty much doomed and the only thing I can see positive in all of this is a possible auction which means a partner for my SFAW shirt of auctioned items, but overall all its pretty sad to see any park go.

Audioslaved, did I even read the same article you read? Too me, it sounded at the very least like a stay of execution for another 2 or 3 years, minimum, with possibilities of salvaging the park for the indeterminate future. Of course, this is all contingent on the deal going through and all parties obeying the conditions. Big ifs, certainly, but not grounds for increased pessimism, imo.
