Well, enthusiasts know Intamin sh*t breaks all the time so in that sense it would live up to their expectations.

They do. And as much as I love the few I've ridden, B&M inverts are typically much better.

If I owned my own theme park I would try to also incorporate animal exhibits and education. I used to work at a zoo and I appreciate the quiet parts of parks where you can explore and relax when you need a break.

In reality though I would need to hire a lot of people who knew what they were doing much better than I do.

I'd be all for anyone doing this. I remember loving that park when I was a little kid (first "big" steel roller coaster I ever went on) but then going back when I was in college and being horribly disapointed and just kind of sad.
The location is great and the amount of land they have is ridiculous for how few attractions they have. If I was to manage that property I would try to keep a small manageable and not super gross aquarium. Something very small (maybe even with the animals of the great lakes even though all those fish are just kind of boring and brown), but overall that may be a bad idea as it may remind people of the bad management of Marineland.

How long has it been since the "Everyone Loves Marineland" days? It feels like forever.

Here's a park I've been thinking of for a while, names and all... welcome to Crystal Pointe! :)

Coasters
-Surge: A B&M hyper that dominates the park's skyline and the front of the park
-Thunderhawk: A B&M floorless with five inversions (loop, dive loop, zero g roll, two corkscrews)
-Forest Flyer: A Schwarzkopf custom Jumbo Jet (think Whizzer at SFGAm) with multiple fly-bys and two tunnels
-Voltage: An Intamin twist and spike impulse
-Mad Mouse: Basic Mack wild mouse layout
-Outlaw Express: A classic Arrow mine train with two lifts, the oldest coaster in the parj
-Rattlesnake: A GCI wooden with Millennium Flyer trains, basically a mix between Goldstriker and Mystic Timbers
-Big Dipper: A Vekoma 247m roller skater
Flats
-Boardwalk Blaster: Triple S&S shot towers
-FearFall: 1st generation Intamin drop tower
-AiRider: Mondial Windseeker
-Delirious: Zamperla Discovery
-Orbit: HUSS enterprise
-Grande Carousel: Chance double-decker
-Pipe Scream: Zamperla skater
-Galleon: Zamperla pirate ship
-Scream Machine: HUSS topspin
-The Turnpike: Classic cars
Water Rides
-Splashdown Falls: Mack log flume
-Adventure Rapids: Intamin rapids that travels under Rattlesnake's layout
-High Tide: Hopkins shoot-the-chute

The park would also have a classic train ride and a Von Roll skyride.

If I won the lottery there would be 2 possibilities:
[/Build a park from scratch[b]b]
I would buy a huge section of land(at least 500 + acres)with interstate access to at least 2 major cities approx. 100+/-away.
I would start off small:an Intamin skytower,a ferris wheel with LED lights,a carousel with real organ,and a clone of the Revere Beach Cyclone-and the trains would be buzzbar only.
Eventually I would add new sections/lands and build a train that circles the park,as well as a multi-stop skyway(like what WDW is doing).
The signature ride for this park would be a mountain similar to KD's Lost World,only better:It would contain an indoor/outdoor coaster in the upper part of the mountain,while the lower part had a forward/reverse flume ride.
Buy into Six Flags[b][/b]
Shell out $1 million to be part owner and then make the following changes:
Year 1-repave Great Adv.'s entire parking lot and add restrooms to SFA's Gotham City
-all parks get 10 new Coke Freestyle machines that only serve soda made with REAL SUGAR :b !
-Great Adv. & SFA both get an Enterprise,Tilt-A-Whirl,and Chance Wipeout;SFStL gets a Tilt-A-Whirl,Chance Wipeout and Teacups.
Year 2-Great Adv. and SFStL get a Disko,Larson Scooters and Fabbri Magic Carpet;SFA gets a Disko and a Discovery.
-Great Adv.,SFA,& SF StL get a in-park brewpub.
-Glow In The Dark parade is brought back to Great Adv.,SFA,& SFStL.
Year 3-All other parks get Glow In the Dark parade
-SFA gets buzzbar-only trains for Wild One& Roar and S:ROS is reprofiled to be more like SFNE's version.
-SFStL gets buzzbar -only trains for Screechin' Eagle and an Intamin Giga version of Steel Dragon.
