"I think it needs to be reinvented for a younger, more active generation." That pretty much sums it up. He made it very clear he doesn't plan to compete with Disney/Universal, that CG would have it's own crowd. Plus, if it is such a problem down there with tradition, what a perfect chance to make a compromise on the coasters. Build some extreme steel, but also consider an old-fashioned woody, or hey, maybe even a side-friction that everyone can enjoy, both riding, or admiring. Why does Leap The Dips have to be all alone?

Think a  Bonfante Gardens of the south.
