  1. Did I mention Kings Dominion? No I did not. I would assume that Cedar Fair has been happy with Kings Dominion's attendance, and therefore not needed to make a huge capital investment to keep attendance afloat. The whole business about "playing favorites" is idiotic. Kings Dominion was pretty well stacked when it came to rides while parks like Carowinds and Canada's Wonderland were well behind for their market potential a few years ago. Now I'd say they are all closer to being on equal footing.

  2. The medal detectors are just giving you a perception of safety. They don't actually make things safer. When's the last time you heard of a weapon being confiscated at an amusement park? If someone wanted to pull a Columbine and shoot everyone, it would be just as easy to do before you pass through medal detectors.


    This is similar to people on Facebook saying they wish Fury had OSTR's because it would be safer.

  3. Hey Larry, I have frequented the park index for some time now and figure it's time I contribute.

  4. Just wanted to say I really enjoyed your Frontier City pics as you don't see too many from there, and I am looking to go there sometime during the Labor Day weekend. My only question about how much time would you say you spent there?


    Also loved the SDC report, I went there in 2005 and was amazed at the place, particularly all the similarities to Dollywood. How can you not love the cave?! Definitely one of the best parks in the country.


    Look forward to seeing more...

  5. I think this is just a case of sour grapes thinking its not fair for them to get a Hyper when their "Sister" park is getting a Giga.


    "But why does Amy get a 20 oz pop (cola, soda, whatever you say) when I only get a 12 oz.?!?!?!"


    It may be for some people, but I don't feel this way at all. I am fairly certain I know both layouts by now to some extent, and I am EXTREMELY happy that Carowinds is likely getting what they are over what KD is getting. I think once both are announced for sure, you might be seeing some bandwagon jumping.

  6. If you had clicked through to my post to another board you would have seen that I said the yellow coaster, which was the one marked X-WORKS is gone. Where? I don't know.


    I know I sound like a 'fanboy' but I really think the track is going to Carowinds for their hyper, they been doing a ton of work to the former log flume area as well as the parking lot.. and all signs so far point to a large B&M.


    Also the webmaster of Carowinds Connection had an interesting take on the customer name, but I would need to find more labels to confirm.
