Posted Tuesday, February 11, 2003 4:10 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Strong results from telecommunications helped boost French media giant Vivendi Universal's annual revenue 6% to about $66 billion in 2002, offsetting declines in music and theme park sales. But fourth-quarter revenue, handicapped by weak results from the film and theme park operations, rose just 1% to about $15.3 billion.

As long as Universal keeps Halloween Horror Nights, I'm happy.

Why not? What's different? The parent company isn't bankrolling such events now just for the hell of it, they do it to get butts in the park. The new owners or the new company wouldn't do things any differently.

I sure as heck would do a few things differently....cancelling HHN isn't one of them though. In-state advertising and promotions could EASILY provide a huge boost in *butts in the park*. Most of the Floridians I know rarely if ever set foot in the theme parks....and if you *please* ME, I'm likely to return, probably with *paying customers*...;)
