That would be interesting. I went there a few years ago and while the old Coaster was fun, the rest seemed so State Fair Midway. (Which, to be fair, is exactly what it is, only permanent.)

I feel like the Pacific Northwest is incredibly underserved. It's 72 and sunny every day with very little rain most of the summer. The Midwest would kill for that weather. The shoulder seasons are pretty long too since there isn't a proper winter unless you go up into the mountains.
