Ok Jeff I will make my first post here.
We do know "Mr." Keller down here. Now we don't have dinner with him but we do know him. I'm sorry if it offends you that Keller did not do well at Worlds of Fun. He come down here and was looking to get promoted back to Cedar Point and the best way to do that is to make big profits at all costs. By all costs means that he cut every budget he could and some that he shouldn't, just look back to what happened last July.
Worlds of Fun did make the biggest "profit" of any cedar fair park back in 96 and the park was going in the right direction until mid year 98. This is when the budgets in the wrong areas were starting to get cut. Here is one example, he wanted to cut the staffing on a ride that had only one staffed position. Of course he didn't get that done.
Of course The Force was not built on WoF profits but the profits that WoF makes don't all go back in the WoF all the time. Oh and the weather done here has not been bad. I just wish park chains stop using this as an excuse.
Now with all that said, I will say that "Mr." Keller with do well at the point, he no longer has to prove anything to Kinzel and wont be cutting budgets like he did here.
Jeff you can delete this if you want but as you said "I've said it before... those who know the most don't talk, those don't know talk the most." This is my one and probably only post and I see a lot from you. I read this forum for a long time and respect it but you have been coming off as one of those of "blind faith religion of Point fans" and Cedar Fair can do no wrong.

How many times do I have to say it? Have you even read the other thread on "First Rule of Thumb?" I never said Cedar Fair can do no wrong; You're reading in to things.
What I will not tolerate is character assasinations of a respected member of the industry based on a bunch of he said-she said nonsense. Post it on someone else's site.
