Jeff, Mike and Carrie review this week's news in the amusement industry.

  • The Fall Affair at Holiday World is in the books for 2010, with about 130 people attending.
  • Mike did the water park, and loves the way the size handles the crowds.
  • Holiday World and Splashin' Safari announces new stuff for next year. [Ed. note: We forgot to mention the new family slides! -J]
  • The crew talks about the joys of road tripping. And rental cars.
  • Six Flags keeps adding Paramount Parks folk to its lineup. Cedar Fair loses.
  • Universal modifies Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey to accommodate larger people, and it's part of a trend around Orlando. Jeff gets on a pretty long rant about eating right and not being so damn lazy when it comes to convenience. Carrie makes the case that there's big cultural change that has to happen.
  • SeaWorld Orlando makes some temporary changes to minimize risk to trainers.
  • Owner of Geauga Lake's Big Dipper continues to make an ass out of himself with attention whoring and threats to tear down the ride.

  • Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Tampa tease new stuff.
  • Luna Park at Coney Island has crazy good year. What's next?
  • Cedar Point's Mean Streak catches fire, but it's not serious, much to the dismay of enthusiasts everywhere.
  • New restaurants open at Epcot, Jeff says he'd like to get down there for the food and wine festival one of these years.
