San Antonio is a fun town to visit. If you haven't done it yet, check it out. I do recommend staying at least a few nights near the riverwalk; it's really quite nice. Some very upscale-but-not-stuffy places to eat around there.

You know how many places will make your ceasar salad tableside?

I ate in a riverwalk place that made your guacamole tableside. That was a nice touch.

In the call, they said that one park had just over 1 million people. This must have been Darien Lake. There are just too many parks, and some are going to get neglected because they always give to the big parks. Magic Mountain is doing just fine. They said that they are going to give a new train to that park.

They get Tatsu, Superman, Deja Vu, Riddler's Goliath, and you say they get neglected. That's why. They are spending too much on roller coasters, and don't have enough for anything else. It's going to change. It's great to have roller coasters, but you can have too many. They cost a lot operating, they cost a lot to get more mechanics, and they cost a chunk of money buying and building. They have too many!!

I think Cedar Point has all those roller coasters, and puts them at that park, and CF basically forgets about the rest of the chain. They get a ride here, and there. CF is also smaller to begin with. I'm not talking about the acquistion of Paramount parks. Paramount Parks has the rides in those parks, and they don't have to do to much with them. Thus, more money for Cedar Point.

Ok what are they going to do with Batman the Escape? Anyone think they are going to give it back to Six Flags or are they going to keep it in storage, or even put it back together.

In the article here in the Buffalo News, SF stated that SFDL's attendance was at 1.2 million for the season. SFEG may have also hit the million marker also, but the report we got here said SFDL had the higher number. Not too bad of a number for a park that gets neglected and even closed one month early!

The fate of BTE is still up in the air. I would think they would be throwing that in with the sale of the park, but you never know. They could want to ship it to another SF property to keep it in the chain. I can't imagine keeping that rough thing in the chain, but it is SF. Don't they really owe DL a rollercoaster after not adding one for over 7 years?? I'll take it even if it is an old rough stand-up. Then hopefully 2008 will bring 2 coasters to DL, one old and one new!

Here is the link to the article if you really need to see it

32 sweaty people on a boat, in water that probably isn't safe enough to drink that does not sound like romance to me. :)

That is funny that the conference call stated only one of the parks that was sold has an attendance of more than 1 million. The Rocky Mountain News said that Elitch's had 1.2 million in attendance.

Robocoaster's avatar A while back, when the intention to sell the parks was first being reported, I had commented that SF owned the rides (and the business) at WW/EV in Federal Way, WA, but not the land. Some on the boards commented I must be mistaken, that SF had bought the parks.

This from the Federal Way Mirror, Jan 13th '07.

"Jeff Stock, who owns the land where the parks are located, said he needed to look at the sale in detail before commenting on it."

SF never owned the land in WA. Just setting the record straight. :)
