Travel Channel's 'Family Vacations Week' !!!

Saturday, April 27, 2002 3:00 AM
Starting Monday, May 6th, the Travel Channel will be airing a week long special TV event titled 'Family Vacations Week'. After seeing the commercial, it was strange that all of this event is basically coaster shows and amusement parks (never before seen of course). They showed Goliath, Shockwave (SFGAm), and many many other popular coasters. Somehow, and this is an awesome thing, I get the feeling they should have titled this 'Coaster Week', seeing how for a whole week long, at 8pm every night, most if not all of the shows concern amusement parks and/or coasters! Get ready to set those VCRs!!

Excellent! There is nothing cooler to cheer up a work/school day than settling down to some coaster shows at night.

I think the only problem if we had a roller coaster channel would be having enough programming to keep viewers intersted without showing the same shows over and over. A friend and I toyed with the idea and the way I thought about it was why not show no programming from midnight until 9 am. Then at least the programming spreads out.

I would just do specials for each park in the World at either 1 hour or 2 hours depending on size and information and it would cover in detail the park coasters, rides, and operations. Then, they would have the shows for new coasters, rides, attractions every year. If they at least focused the channel on thrills or extreme experiences like Discovery is doing with the "Wings" channel, I think it would be a really good idea... for us at least. :)
