Good for them. Every little bit helps and I can't imagine it's very expensive to go green as they are.

If their service vehicles are diesel, they could easily use bio-diesel.

Disneyland converted their locomotives to bio-diesel and save something like 500,000 gallons of diesel per year - not to mention saving the exhaust.

I went into GR about 4-5 years ago to praise them for the recycling containers at Seuss Landing (and to inquire when we might expect them park-wide). Not too long afterward, they were *everywhere*. Now this - great work, Universal! :)

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Cedar Point won't be converting their employee bus (BLUE THUNDER!) to "green fuel" anytime soon. ;)
