You're a hoe for that Danny.

How does CP know that adding an interactive family dark ride, a water coaster, or a major flat ride wouldn't "draw them the most people" if they haven't done it before/haven't done it since their "I'm obsessed with getting coaster records" boom?

What's "Highsight"? Something to do with 420'? ;)

Thanks for that. I just noticed it. Nothing can be done. :(

Brian, who's over Dawn and Danny tonight. Tagteaming? That's hardly kosher. ;)

TTD was worth it, but the thing that concerns me is that once CP tops it. TTD well seem just so out of date. I mean think Superman at SFMM compared to Dragster. Not that many years apart.

Unlike say MF that delivers an all out great ride. Dragster is just more of an experience that can easily out datted. Then seem boring in years to come like Superman at SFMM or Oblivion, and not continue to drive guest to the park that well.

Dawn, what can I say? Thanks! :)
Jerry Garcia himself couldn't have said it better...;)

I don't think it's necessarily hindsight, though, when you look at the threads announcing TTD...there WERE more than a few who questioned the wisdom of investing THAT heavily in a clearly *unproven* technology.

That being said, CF has probably done quite well in recouping their investment in TTD in financial terms, as I'll bet even a slight increase in attendance percentage-wise, for CP itself, returns a great deal of money...

And, on the other hand....

I would trade every coaster at SFoG (save Cyclone of course ;)) for a RoS... let alone SFNE's ROS!

I would concur TOTALLY, except it's *Myndbender* you're thinking, I'm thinking of.... :) Love me some Mindbender...happy to hear SFoT's bigger brother version, Shockwave, is running again, and in time for LoriU's visit.

For me, the only REAL competition with Intamin isn't the newer, tamer, Beemas, it's those same *scrumdiddlyumptious* Antons...

I CANNOT believe Brain used THAT word, ROFL....

Of course it was worth it. The attendance and resort numbers make that pretty obvious.

As a local, I personally would have liked something else. After the initial gee-whiz it's very one-trick. At least it clears out Raptor by late afternoon.
