Cypress Gardens announces improvements, including Starliner

Posted | Contributed by Brother Dave

Cypress Gardens owner Kent Buescher announced Thursday there will be no increase in admission prices next year, and annual pass holders will get free parking. The move comes just two months after the park declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Buescher also announced plans to spend millions of dollars on expansions next year, including $5 million to open the historic Starliner roller coaster by June and developing the first phase of a 13-ride children's attraction, which eventually will include a four-story interactive exhibit called "A Bugsville Adventure."
