Posted | Contributed by Jeff

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

  • The gang manages to get out into the world and ride some new stuff.
  • Greg reports long lines and positive reviews from Busch Gardens Europe and the new Griffon.
  • Gonch says that Firehawk at Kings Island so far has problems similar to those it had at Geauga Lake.
  • Mike is impressed with the Wiggles at Six Flags Great America.
  • Jeff and Gonch score laps on Maverick at Cedar Point, which opened earlier than expected after modifications. We like it. We like it a lot.
  • Jeff loves Renegade too at Valleyfair. Is Jeff turning into Paul Ruben?
  • Jeff also digs the Park at The Mall of America, and the aquarium.
  • Smoke-free at Indiana Beach. Gonch comments about how things have changed culturally so quickly.
  • The food pricing at Cedar Fair parks is out of control this year, and this coming from the guys who pay whatever they have to pay.
  • Mike is amused by all of the advertising at Six Flags Great America, but at least we can see that these "partnerships" really exist.
  • Conneaut Lake: Mostly dead is slightly alive?
  • Some of the coasters in Japan are scary for the wrong reasons. Greg has cheated death.
