Why it's tough to start a park?

Obviously to me it seems to be money and stiff competition and the fairly "saturated" market.

What are the chances do you guys think of new parks opening in this day and age?

I hate to say it looks pretty nill of a chance. Of all of the problems I have had trying to get a new park in Indiana, the future looks very doubtful

Well, if you have a nearly unlimited bank to build everything and anything you can think up of like Universal, it's not too hard now is it? :)

There is an intersting interview on the DVD of America's Greatest Roller Coaster Thrills: Ultimate Scream Machines. They talk about the palnning and development, planning, technical things about the coasters, workers to construct the park, and design teams.2 years ago Universal did IOA, and they are flourishing.

But the main hurdle is money. Without money, you can't hire workers, contractors, architects, designers, etc. To get anything in this world, especially in the amusement indusrty, you have to have a lot of the root of all evil...ironic, isn't it?

CP: You couldn't be more right there. It's like the world has said "If you arent rich, you are forbidden to have dreams" 20 yrs ago the statement would have been "If you are a person without dreams, you aren't living"
