The land clearing involves several projects. Most immediate is the re-routing of Powell Road to go around the zoo and connecting with Glick Road (this would eliminate the current dangerous intersection of Powell and Riverside Drive). The new Powell Road will probably end up going through the middle of Wyandot's current picnic grove (which is arguable the nicest-looking part of the park).
Other projects include a new African Safari exhibit and a polar bear exhibit, but those are still several years in the future. The zoo now owns all the remaining open space in the area, including the land on the other side of Powell Road. When the road is moved, they will be free to expand in that direction.
Isn't the regular Six Flags admission price to Wyandot Lake currently around $25? I think that's a bit overpriced for what the park has to offer. I assume that most visitors have season passes. Hopefully things will be better once it is integrated with the zoo.
I would love for Brookfield zoo in Chicago to open a waterpark with a few dry rides and a wooden coaster.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
I just wonder why GL isn't recovering faster. Given their pricing, their cosster lineup, and their waterpark they should be getting more of that business back that they lost because of the SFO fiasco.
Meanwhile, the Columbus Zoo could become a true "3 parks in 1" attraction by beefing up the dry rides a bit. It would have the animals, the dry rides, and the water attractions.
