What will we be looking forward to as we get all these new coaster designs and train, what kind of rides are they going to build? Or better yet, What would you look forward to? You can choose any style of ride, and make one up. I can't wait until designers come up with something new just like the "X" or "SOB". What do we get to look forward to, I can't wait. But, I know I have to.

Hopefully, if I succeed in becoming a coaster designer, I am able to design a new type of ride. I already have a couple in mind.

My wife and I have discussed this from time to time. All the new coasters are great and we would like like everyone to ride them all. Yet there has to be a saturation point somewhere. How many years can parks continue to add new and innovative rides. Computers give designers greater leaveway than ever before but, there has to be a limit. My personal feeling is that we are about there. Six Flags and Cedar Fair seem to be fighting for dominance yet Six Flags is still Premiere and don't they build them too? I personally haven't done the math but I suspect that Six Flags investment is starting to look somewhat like the national defense budget running close to a billion or more dollars for all their improvements, ride additions and whatever else they do to improve their parks. Sooner or later the investment has to start paying back. Are we at that point? I don't have the answer to that question but I have the sinking feeling we are close.

Robbie are you confusing Premier Parks with Premier Rides?
