I once put salt on my Cheerios, by accident.

I once crashed my car into a stop sign, by accident.

I am really working my brain to come up with some way that one could, theoretically, build several multi-million dollar roller coasters by accident, and I'm not coming up with anything, unfortunately.

I'll get back to you.

As and HFE fan, I don't want to see the Herschends attempt to take on ANY of the Six Flags parks for sale. The Six Flags parks are completely different from what HFE does - spending millions to buy, then reinvent them seems too risky. It could break the company.

^ The parks (other than Magic Mountain) DO have potential. Look at a park like Celebration City (if it wasn't located so close to SDC, it would be a nice "small" family park). I could see that same business model applied to Darien Lake and Eltich Gardens.

Plus, look at what they've put in thier parks in the last few years: two Disk'O, two GCI woodies, an S&S launched coaster, and the first Topple Tower and Eurofighter in the 'States.

I get the feeling they want to be trend setters, rather than follow the trend of the day (read: Six Flags). Plus, a reliance on theming never hurt a park. *** Edited 11/12/2006 12:52:42 AM UTC by Arson***

Magic Mountain has alot of potential! look at that LA times artical posted, Read the part where the park draws 2.5-3 million people a year. If they put a decent advertisements advertising the park and taking out Flashback and alot of the trees making it a kids section of the park. I can see 4.5-5 Million visitors a year at the park because it would include somthing for familys aswell as thrill seekers.

Uh, jumping from 3 million to 4.5-5 MILLION is a HUGE jump. And I don't think 2.5-3 million is really that great considering the park is open year round...some of the big parks it competes with size wise/ride wise like GADV and CP do those numbers in just the summer season.

I know it is a HUGE jump but their is not alot for kids to do around LA besides museums and alot of kids do not like them. This will help get kids and teens to the park and thats why i think 4.5-5 million people could be their easly a year. I could be completely roung but its just my oppinion.

Maybe someone else wanted them built, and were coming in for a signature and they did the whole thing like kids try when they want their parents to sign a bad report card without reading it? You know, where you put a piece of carbon paper between the sheets and have them sign something trivial?

Oh! I know! They were asking him for an autograph, and had the coaster contract underneath, and when he went to sign the autograph, they shifted the paper slightly so he signed the contract and didn't know it!!

I did like the idea of "Hollywood's Dollywood" though... :)


Talk about your Magic Mountains! :)

List of things to do for kids in LA:
go to SFMM
go to museums
enroll in remedial grammar and spelling classes.

Winningfreak,I hate to point out the sad but true news..but the entertainment for teens of the L.A area doesn't really rely on Magic Mountian. *** Edited 11/14/2006 8:36:45 PM UTC by As Tro World 2k*** *** Edited 11/14/2006 8:42:10 PM UTC by As Tro World 2k***
