No...if you read back to the beginning of the previous page...you will notice that Shane paid tribute to Ron Toomer, who died today......

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Yes it is true that at one point there was an outdoor version of Flight of Fear that was supposed to go on the Whizzer site. Hypersonic was also originally slated to go on that same site. I am not sure why it was canned and shipped to PKD at the last minute since that is the time that I left Paramount to work for Six Flags in Oklahoma City.

I Think it was cancelled cause they got Stealth in 2000. So they sent it to KD.

Plus if a 104ft wooden Coaster wasn't good, a Premier Rides LIM Launch & A Hypersonic Wouldn't have worked either there.

The Front Gate project is quite nice. Hope the new owners will go in that direction!

I love donkeys more than me.

What I find interesting about the Media Plex is that they were planning to eliminate the front gate and use a pay-per-ride system. I wonder if this concept would have been successful if the other Paramount Parks would have seen something similar.

The entire park would not have been pay per ride. During the typical season the park would have continued to operate as usual but during the off seasson certain attractions would have operated on a pay per ride schedule such as the sky tower, IMAX, carousel and the "outer limits" attraction.

Very interesting. I always felt Paramount saw the park in a different way then other companies. Would have loved to see what the park would be like today with all those attractions.

Thanks for clearing that up, Shane. Looking at the renderings the main gate is missing from the front of the park. I guess considering this setup it would have been moved to where the train used to travel between the Carousel and Hometown Square.
