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

  • X-Flight reborn as Firehawk at Kings Island. Weird!
  • The Ohio parks are connected in terms of how they scan season passes. Six Flags is doing some clever things with season passes as well.
  • The rumor about Harry Potter coming to Islands of Adventure keeps getting stronger. What would it mean for the park?
  • Conneaut Lake is still not getting any help. They're trying to raise money by selling old tokens.
  • The Simpsons are replacing Back to The Future at the Universal Studios parks. We hope they're going to replace the motion base.
  • Mike clears up any confusion about what a churro is.
  • Dorney wants to build a "LIM coaster" that we assume is Geauga Lake's Steel Venom. Dorney is sweet.
  • Anaheim mayor sides with Disney over the low-cost housing. Mike tells us how Chicago handles the issue of affordable housing.
  • Euro Disney still losing money, but less than before.
  • A big conversation ensues about big corporations versus small business. Mike loves himself some Target, and we hate Wal-Mart.
  • Don't forget that the deadline is approaching for Chocolate Buzz. Register today!
