  1. As long as SOMEONE f*&%$@g RMCs the Boss, I really don't care LOL
  2. Here's a powerpoint prezo that was reviewed in the call: https://s2.q4cdn.com/170666959/files/doc_presentations/2023/11/FINAL-Investor-Presentation-11-02-2023.pdf
  3. Yes, I am aware of the reversal....but it only affected a couple parks. Cool, he gave us a hand-me-down Vekoma crawler thing for kids that was supposed to be going to the failed Six Flags in Dubai. And then we got a giant swing, to replace a giant swing after we lose XCalibur for next year. If he wants to see people come through for 1 day, repeat visits or annual passes, he has GOT to invest in a coaster for the park. You would get flood of people coming from all over. I remember the late 90s/early 2000s when we got investment how packed it would be. Gotta spend money to earn money. Your cheapest ROI without it being a large, drawnout project is simply a call to RMC to complete the job at a fraction of cost for a new coaster.
  4. I see your point, and I 100% agree with you. However, they're going about it the wrong way. Can Saleem come in and jack prices up immediately and expect no objection? NO. But if they were to scale raising prices appropriately by improving the product, I think you'd see an incredible support in revenue and attendance. RMC the boss. For god's sake. You know how many regional pass members you'd get JUST from that? As a 38 year old dad with 3 kids (1 of which is 5 1/2 and asks to go all the time), there isn't anything enticing me to get a pass - other than caving for my son. However, if they properly added thrills and invested capital, that'd be a different story! Think of the draw this place would get from RMC Boss ALONE!!!!!! Then, go get an Intamin or Mack Powersplash for the old Tidal Wave plot and raise the annual passes a tad more, incrementally. You can't continue to roll out the same sh***y park year in and out, and believe that people will support it. Need more example of this?....see the STL Cardinals. The ownership is under amazing scrutiny because the fans are bought in because of success. They had their worse year since 1990 and have seen attendance crumble, season ticket sales plummet, and have seen revenue decline in the BPV and hospitality areas. Their response is that they need to spend aggressively this offseason and put a better PRODUCT ON THE FIELD. SFSTL could learn a valuable lesson from that.
  5. They also had a slide on the Grand Carousel, but I couldn't zoom clearly to see what they said? Thought that'd get ya fired up too @prozach626
  6. Hearing that the water on Cheetah has stopped again. Anyone know what's up with that? Makes the s bends so much better and feel faster with the water rushing by....and is just a fantastic touch. Sad to see small things like this go away. But then again.....#PantheonTheming
  7. Well said, @prozach626- however, when you know as a corporation the VERY well-overdue thing that would boost more consumer dollars and flat-out ignore it, it's stupid for the corporation to continue turning away from that glaring need. I understand consumer frustration, to that extent. I also agree with you - don't like it, don't support it. It's just mind boggling to me they have a violent, rotting coaster that COULD be a world-class one and be half the cost of building a new, ground-up build. But that's the sh*t we deal with having SFSTL local - and them barely getting by. A small capital investment would, without question, boost their ROI/Revenue exponentially. See any other park that did an RMC conversion.
  8. I think it has been 5 years, maybe more? I should have stated something other than they "closed" it. It's been SBNO for years. Seems like Falcon's Fury might have the same Intamin Flat luck that Phoenix has. Hope not, though.
  9. The park is closing and dismantling their Intamin flat ship: Phoenix. I loved that thing! I thought it was so cool how it'd hang upside down. Lots of people would just watch the ride cycle. It's next to Falcon Fury, so I wonder what the future of that area will be?
  10. I'm hoping Universal takes a page out of Port Adventura's book with their new coaster collab between Intamin and Sally. Thing looks INSANELY good! Gut F&F and put it in there!
  11. This thing looks brilliant! I'm shocked Epic Universe didn't use this "story-telling" type ride for it. Maybe IoA or Studios could add this? Simpsons or Fear Factor Plot? Or just re-do F&F...
  12. Side note - Spartus is a strong name! I don't see anyone mouthing off to Spartus in HR
  13. Any idea how far planning got? I had heard that as well from a person who has family with Eureka Town Hall....so I wonder if it ever got to serious planning? Pretty cool to think what could have been. But also f'n VERY depressing. I think Steel Boss could have moved the needle for STL as WoF and SDC have had capital (SDC way more obviously than WoF).
  14. Not trying to cause any issues. Just what I, personally, felt and observed. I'm just hoping it's more consistently up....that's all that matters.
  15. Again, I'm certainly not here to argue or stir the pot. I do remember opening year vs my experience last year - I came off thinking it was a bit slower, is all. It was a shade slower cresting those first hills and I remember it not having that "insane out of control" feel. That's all. But to each their own; maybe it was just not a perfect ride. I don't know. But it's not worth getting in a back and forth over
