Also, four arcades are being upgraded this year from the outdated coin/token approach to new arcade systems like those found at Gameworks where "playcards" are issued and can be "recharged" for more play at the register at certain prices. Every guest will be issued one of these cards with one or two free gameplays -- which I think is an ingenious move. Get people to play a free game on the house -- they're more likely to spend money to continue playing a little longer.
It's also a boost in ride safety when you think about it. Instead of having a pocket full of change, and then deciding to go on a high-speed coaster and lose half of that (which become lots of tiny high-speed projectiles), you'd have a plastic card which fits nicely in a wallet, or at the very least is more wind resistant so if said card DOES get lost, it slows down fairly quickly and less potential for causing damage to a person or personal property.
The SF website desparately needs to be updated. It still lists SF parks that have been closed or sold. I find it very misleading.
Except that the deal hasn't be completed yet and SF still technically owns them.
As a side note, given all of the press SF has been getting in the last month, Shapiro does seem to be making improvements with SF. They have a big hole to climb out of, but there does seem like reasons to be optimistic. Time will tell if he can pull it off.
