Before the announcement in August and the car/animatronic unveiling at IAAPA, I don't think anyone would have believed SFSL would get such a top of the line dark ride. A lot of Guests that come to SFSL haven't been on Transformers or Spiderman, but even those who have will be blown away be this attraction next season. With Scooby being the best (according to many enthusiasts and Sally Corp) version on the Ghostblasters-type dark rides, it great to see that it is being replaced by something even better. That animatronic blew me away.

 

Six Flags really seems to be dominating so far. Neal Thurmond was recently promoted from SFMM Director of Operations to SFFT Park President. The identification and promotion of great leaders like him is really helping to grow the company and improving the parks' quality.

 

In other news, I love the Games-U-Ride concepts. With the popularity of games declining in the industry for the past 30 years, I think that these games could be able to help bring them back a little bit. To the TPR members who were able to try them, do you think the experience was enough for a lot of parks to really make money in a park?

 

I can't be thankful enough for all of the great TPR coverage year after year. Keep up the great work as so many really appreciate it!

It'll be interesting to see how well the wooden shuttle coaster goes over. It does look like a good alternative if a park wants to get a "big" ride in a small space (and a nice change of pace from old shuttle loops).
