Screamscape had another post about a rumored theme park in Southeast Wisc. with a possible theme of King Arthur.
Does anyone other than Screamscape have any knowledge of this???

It already has a theme park. See here
mOOSH [yes...I know, that's not a theme park...yet].

Just because one may want to change their name to a theme park, doesnt in fact make one a theme park. Unless of course theme parks consist of carny quality workers who run a few coasters and go cart rides.
The screamscape info indactes a "new" South Eastern Wisc park to go against SFGAM. Wisc. Dells isnt part of south eastern wisc., but south central wisc.
And big chief isnt talking of a King Arthur type theme that im aware of.

Well there already is a Rennaisance (sp?) Faire in Bristol, which is in south eastern Wisconsin. Bristol is right on the state line between Wisconsin and Illinois right by Kenosha so if that is the park getting converted it would be less than ten minutes away from Great America. I have yet to see an official press release on this so called park or hear anything in the local media (I'm a south eastern Wisconsin resident). I'm not holding my breath on this.

Im also not holding my breath and agree with Kick the Sky.
But the competition would be great if it does happen.

I don't know how great the competition would be. I think it would be a little bit too ambitious. I can see SFGAm EASILY putting out a little flame that would come from the theme park. It would be great, but I definately wouldn't put it within 10 minutes and it would have to be much more reasonably priced to do anything to SFGAm because they're getting smart in bringing in guests.

Theme park is a very loose term. If I remember correctly, Lake Compounce calls itself the nation's first theme park (or something to that extent). I consider LC as much a theme park as a Jersey shore amusement pier (unless you count "traditional" as a theme), but there is nothing to say that they can't refer to themselves as one.

Well honestly Six Flags calls their parks Theme Parks. But my question is, Whats the theme? Concrete?
Monday, February 2, 2004 11:39 AM
No, the concrete theme is Cedar Fair's specialty. :)

SF's current corporate theme is "Financial Woes"

Just a thought, a while back on here some guy was on about 'peoples park' or 'imagination park' or something like that, I can't find the thread, but, maybe, just maybe he's found his land and is ready to go!!!! Probably not though!!!

But wouldn't Cedar Fair parks consider themselves Amusement Parks and not Theme Parks :) (excluding Knott's)
Sorry had to....

Depends on the SF park I guess.
I do consider SFGAm a theme park because its broken up into different themed sections. While the theming is not on the same level as Disney or Universal, it is theming none the less.
They did do a good job on Southwest Territory and I have a feeling the new Mardi Gras section will be nicely themed as well.
