This is good, in my opinion, Coney is what it is, and it shouldn't be changed.

If Coney is not changed, it will no longer be. It can't possibly continue as is.*** This post was edited by RollerCoastin!!!! 8/7/2007 12:31:10 AM ***

I Agree Coney Island WAS Great but It is in horrible shape Been there once and probably never again I was hopping for some revitalization something to bring me back but If they aren't going to build anything new it's just another carnival ride park. It's sucks because in it's day that place most cirtainly rocked!!!!!!!! I wish somebody with some money would get in there and really turn things around but who?????????

Coney in is current state is broken. But Thor's plan was not the fix. I just hope this doesn't lead to Astroland sitting for 30 years as an empty lot like the Steeplechase situation.
