Anyone know anything about this? Did I not get the memo? Is this, was this or will this air on TV?
Looks like a series of shows being produced about "The Business Of..." and the first is Fun.
I've only watched a short bit of it, but it appears to follow the process of Dollywood getting Mystery Mine from start to finish...not about building it like most coaster shows, but about buying it - the business side of things.
Looks cool and I plan on watching a bit more. You can view parts of the show on the Demos Page.

Anyone ever heard of this group before? *** Edited 3/12/2008 6:52:29 PM UTC by CoasterDaddy***

I can honestly say that I might be the only one here (*other than Gonch?*) who would have as much fun in the boardroom making these kinds of decisions as I would being on the midway enjoying the rides themselves...

I'd have fun, but not AS much fun. ;)
Cool topic for a show. Hopefully someone will be able to answer his question.

Speaking of fun, fun! was a pretty good show that they used to have on a cable channel before. Now, the cable channel has deceased, and I don't know what happened to the channel. It was called fun!, and this guy would go to amusement like places.
He even went to Medieval Times, and western fake shoot out place. He also went to amusement parks like Universal, and that one in that amusement park in Arizona. It was called fun!, and don't know what channel it's on if it is on any, anymore. http://www.blackfamilychannel.com/fun.htm *** Edited 3/13/2008 4:30:21 AM UTC by Spinout***

Here's the company's main website.
When you read the list of where their footage and productions have been shown, it looks like just about everyone who has a TV has seen something they've done. Plus they chase storms!

Now that I think of this, I think that this is just what they want to do, and they want to interest the networks to pick it up by showing a demo. I don't think it has ever aired, and it won't air until some network gets it.
