Is it safe to say that the Revolution is the Huss Frisbee being removed from Great Adventure. KIng Chaos sounds like Great Adventure's Jester. Just a thought.
And....Mardi Gras themeing is hot now. In Atlantic City the Showboat Casino is themed as such, as the new Tropicana Casino expansion. In Vegas, Harrah's, Orleans, Mermaids (downtown), and Rio are all Mardi Gras themed.
Finally, a marketing department who looked further than the local shopping mall for a trend.

They have, for the past two seasons, held a Mardi Gras themed festival in August that has been extremely well received. With 20/20 hindsight, I see that as being a test to see how the public accepted the new theme idea...
