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

  • Chicago area family parks struggle for various reasons. Mike says there is room for these parks, but they don't do a good job of marketing themselves.
  • Jeff's mom thinks SeaWorld Orlando is cool. The new whale show has opened.
  • Orlando parks struggle to find workers. Is the pay an issue?
  • More on the Oakwood Hydro death. Very sad every time it comes up. The blame game is in motion.
  • Michigan's Adventure will get a water line, and they opened Grand Rapid, their new river ride.
  • Joyland: What's up with these small park operators and opposing forces?
  • Gurnee wants to tack on another buck for Six Flags Great America parking.
  • The big news: There is some evidence that Cedar Fair may be considering purchasing Paramount Parks. However, the alleged statement in the Toledo newspaper from Dick Kinzel was likely taken out of context.
  • BeastBuzz is coming up at Paramount's Kings Island on June 17. Sign up today!
