I'd say at the "whole park" level, definitely Hard Rock Park. As for individual attractions, I think the makeovers of "Journey into Imagination" would probably take the prize, along with Superstar Limo at DCA (which was almost bad enough to be endearing).

Geauga Lake

Cedar Fair's actions leading up to their current situation

Six Flags bankruptcy

Hard Rock/Freestyle Park(possibly biggest fail ever)

Son of Beast(rode it when it was all of 10 days old and it was horrid even then)

Six Flags New Orleans.

Gerstlauer trains on CCI coasters.

The loss of CCI and a large chunk of their coasters.

Six Flags whoring out with advertising campaigns. I feel like train skins ruined part of the park experience.

SFI's lack of theming on certain installations, as well as their rushed installations.

Vekoma's Giant Inverted Boomerang.

Losing Astroworld, though I never visited and have no opinion on the park.
