  • Disneyland's president bails in the middle of a massive re-do at California Adventure. Isn't that odd?
  • Morons get busted at in the Great Adventure parking lot selling fake hand stamps. This happens annually. Gonch found a better deal on the Internet than the scam stamp.

  • Jeff is moving to the death valley of roller coasters, the Pacific Northwest.
  • Phantom of the Coney Island, coming to a theatre near you! There's an arena Star Wars orchestra concert tour, Mike says.
  • Walt Disney World wins in the let the disabled folks use Segways lawsuit. And by the way, if you've never been on one, do give it a shot. Epcot has a cheap bastard way for you to try it out.
  • Six Flags gets its out for the New Orleans park. So what's next for the place?
  • Carrie does the Phoenix Phall Phunfest, and likes the fiery bird. Just look out for the covered bridge people.
  • Mike's kid is like a horror film.
