I liked Geauga Lake back in the day, but it is done... let it go... I hope people realize gofundme isn't like kickstarter (if memory serves correctly) kickstarter, I believe, returns money for unfunded projects, gofundme is a hole that people throw their money into sometimes for projects like this that will never happen.
Hmmm, an easy cash grab on nostalgia for stupid people that believe anything. I'll be back soon right after I re-create my 2 new gofundme on restoring Ellen's Energy Adventure and The Great Movie Ride. I'll set it to $10 mil to show I'm serious but as long as I make enough to cover my moving fees I'll be happy.

I think it'd depend on who owned the park, and what kind of condition the company was in. I could definitely see Six Flags RMCing it, if they could afford it. Not so with Cedar Fair, as they'd much rather have the RMC at Cedar Point.
As someone who works in this industry, I can tell you point blank that putting blanket numbers like that as a budget, even if they are estimates, is not how it's done. You have money that has to go into concept design, architecture / L-arch / civil eng / interior design / design visualization, construction, marketing...it is nowhere near as straightforward as the GoFundMe user is making it out to be, even if they are categorized as a "business".
