I'm looking forward to visiting the park again this year.:)
If this was a Shapiro originated idea then he obviously knows what he's doing in some respects...
Now I'm curious about the two new kids sections for this year. Since Wiggles was announced already and didn't include SFKK, I'd assume that Thomas the Tank must be replacing TED.
LIMs or no LIMs it sounds like a great ride. I'm very pleased to see water coasters popping up all over the place, and I believe this will be the closest one to me that is in-park. (I'm still trying to figure out why in OH, a state known for rollercoasters, none of the big three parks have one. And yes, I am aware that Great Wolf by PKI and Castaway Bay each have one, I'm talking about the actual parks.) I'm sure the Crocodile Isle attraction will be a huge hit as well.

Congrats SFKK! You guys have needed this expansion for a long time now. We'll definently include it as part of our HW visit this year. Looks fun! Plus, I miss Thunder Run & Greezed Lightnin'.
You mean a mid-tier SF park is getting a unique, fun (looking), family oriented attraction that increases capacity in exactly the area of the park where it's needed most?
Not only that,but today it's reported that Van Halen is touring with David Lee Roth this summer. Folks, after these too announcements, I think we can expect the Second Coming or the Rapture soon, huh? ;)

SFFT is getting its spinning coaster, too, so there ARE clearly some things going right in this regime.
SFKK's new GM has gotten REALLY solid reviews as well. The people of Kentuckiana are getting LOTS of love...
Not that it matters much, either way SFKK is getting a couple of nice additions for '07. And hey, if you don't like water rides, you can always grab a bowl of Cherry Garcia or Chunky Monkey! :)

I personally haven't had the pleasure, but from those I know who HAVE met him, there seems to be universally-positive impressions... :)
Jay Thomas (born Jon (or John) Thomas Terrell on July 12, 1948 in Kermit, Texas) is an American actor and disc jockey. He was raised in New Orleans, where he attended Jesuit High School, New Orleans. He and his wife Sally Thomas live in Southern California and are parents to three sons.
Thomas is perhaps best known for his recurring roles. The first on the sitcom Mork and Mindy, on which he played Remo DaVinci, the Italian deli-owner, from 1979 until 1981. He then played the hockey-player-turned-travelling-ice show-skater second husband, Eddie LeBec, of Carla on Cheers (1987-1989). He also appeared on Murphy Brown as a tabloid talk show host, Jerry Gold, who was also one of Murphy's love interests (1989-1998).
Thomas also starred in the short-lived 1990 show Married People. Thomas played Russell Myers, a writer who worked at home who was married to a high powered lawyer (played by Bess Armstrong). When his wife had a baby, Thomas' character became a househusband.
He later starred in the 1992-1995 sitcom Love & War (with Susan Dey then Annie Potts) and in the short-lived 1996 Ted Danson-Mary Steenburgen sitcom Ink. He also had the bad luck to host Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?, a controversial one-night special on Fox in February 2000 that featured Darva Conger and Rick Rockwell.
Thomas has also knocked the holiday meatball off of the Christmas Tree for The Late Show with David Letterman almost every year since 1998. (Dave knocked it off in 2004 and 2006.)

I haven't heard of Second Coming, but The Rapture are coming to Pittsburgh on February 3rd. Should be a good show.
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom has named Jay Thomas as its new general manager.
He replaces Lee Graham, who left to pursue other interests, according to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom public relations manager Carolyn McLean.
Thomas, 37, most recently served as an analyst for the Six Flags Corporate Data Center in Oklahoma City.
Before that, he was director of operations for Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J., and prior to that, director of administration and park operations at Six Flags Atlanta Properties.
I've talked to Jay a few times and he seems really nice.
I also noticed on the SF site that Six Flags GMs are now "Park Presidents," so Jay Thomas is President of SFKK
