The existing wave pool is one of the best all-purpose wave pools I've seen because about half of it is about 8' deep, meaning it is actually possible to *swim* in the darned thing. Unfortunately, the modern industry standards only allow wave action pools to be about waist deep... :(
I do wonder what kind of ride replacement they have in mind. The adult rides in the park (Eli "Aristocrat" Wheel, Sea Dragon coaster, RDC bumper cars; King Frolic, Eli Scrambler, Sellner Tilt-A-Whirl, and Eyerly Spider) are all (except the bumper cars) ancient, but they are all good pieces in reasonable shape. The Frolic, in particular, is a unique piece that I hope they opt to keep. The Zoo has already indicated that they are planning to keep the coaster, so I imagine they are going to have to keep a couple of other dry-park rides as well, or the coaster is going to be horribly out of place...!

Frolic? Still not sure WHAT to make of that thing.
