  1. The parks 50 mile radius includes all of the Baltimore suburbs and south into northern Virginia/DC suburbs. There are plenty of middle and upper middle class people that live there. Those DC/North Virginia and Baltimore suburbs, are not low income. Then you can go out 75 miles or even a 100miles, which is where parks expect to be able to draw to 100 miles pretty comfortably.
  2. SF on paper looks like it could be a top park. SFA has 8+M population within 50 miles at 14M within100miles, They have 300 acres available for development, the only park with more is GAdv. There must be some studies, surveys, research they have done that major investments won't produce the ROI they want compared to other parks that have been getting a lot lately like OT, FT, GAm that all have got Justice Leagues, 4D's, RMC''s in the time SFA has gotten a couple of flats and relocated coaster almost 5 years ago.
  3. It's a great way to increase revenue and it has worked fine at other larger SF parks such as GAdv and MM. Combo regular and Combo gold pass would create a more tiered structure to the passes like SFMM. You have a 1 park pass, a 2 park regular pass for $45 more and 2 park gold for $20 more. That's the SFMM structure of $95, $140, $160. SFGAm could do a $75, $115, $135. Then offer even bigger discounts during flash sale($65, $100) with a regular 2 park pass gets a free upgrade to gold or something. So essentially try to sell a bunch of 2 park gold passes at around $100
  4. SF is back to superloops. Come on SF there are so many new looping rides and you're possibly putting in a 40 yr old ride technology. What a record? The biggest superloop. LOL!
  5. Can we not start with this? No one cares about this except whiny enthusiasts. Don't call a water slide a coaster and there is no discussion. It's a water coaster, not a water slide. A so called water coaster is just a water slide that you sit in a tube. Using the logic that these are coasters than flumes are coasters too. But, nobody calls flumes coasters b/c they aren't.

  7. Hershey is claiming this as their 14th coaster. Come on this is not a real coaster and should not be in your coaster count. Don't pull the equivalent of SF calling superloops coasters.
  8. Well SF might not be done with superloops. There has been rumors of a La Ronde superloop and now today a SFGAm custom largest ever superloop. That would be hilarious if one of their teased records/firsts is the tallest superloop. Why not put the 9th and 10th superloops in the chain along with the 11th skyscreamer, and 2 more 4D's for good measure. Of course start the cloning of Skywarps b/c if they actually bought one, they will end up at many parks like superloops.
  9. Screamscape is reporting a Skywarp rumor. It would count as a world's first that GAdv teased on their website.
  10. Actually, it could be a reason not to be done by Spring Break. They open for full hours during the local schools break and it's packed already. The kids are going to come anyway for school break. If you don't open the coaster till school lets out for the year in May, they have an enticement to come back. They see the construction in March and think I want to come back to ride that unique looking coaster in a few months.
  11. The hotel/resort business has been pretty lucrative thus far for Cedar fair. All of the top 5 parks will likely eventually get hotel/resorts. The bundling with the discount package on tickets with hotel stay and early entry, makes it very appealing to no platinum pass visitors.
  12. What about dueling Raptors? That would solve most of the capacity issue making it 1200pph spec.
