Most of the parks hardly need to worry. Im sure Paramount, Cedar Point, and SFWOA dont.

I was at Six Flags Worlds of Adventure on Friday and Cedar Point on Sunday and neither of them were crowded at all.

I'm not too happy that we have to rely on millions of peeps in order for new coasters to be built which results in frustrating & massive lines.

I've just realised that the peeps enjoy coasters almost as much as us, except we're a little bit more interested in them. ;) I just don't like it when peeps get the front seats & I don't, as think to myself "That's not fair, I'm a coaster enthusiast, they're not." Maybe I'm saying this because I've never experienced ERT.

Well since CP isn't all that busy, I guess I will have to make another trip there. I do like short lines:)

Attn: Six Flags, repainting the Cobra at LaRonde and calling it Batman "something" isn't going to cut it. We want NEW and cool coasters, and we want them yesterday.

Both Six Flags and Cedar Point seem almost too jammed.

I've heard that PKI is having the best year ever for attendance so far.
