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".

Oh hey, the guy who started this GoFundMe has read your post and responded to it. Thought I'd share what he had to say:

Seriously though, I wish them the best of luck. If it does so happen to work out I will gladly have a nice serving of humble pie, but call me skeptical.

Just think - for a "modest" $200.00 donation, you can have free admission for one entire year! :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

Seriously, where does this guy get these numbers? At the current pace of donations, he should have that $20 million in about 342 years! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ooh, that's much better than $210 for a Cedar Point Platinum Pass. Who wants to go an hour away and ride stuff that actually exists and will be operating in 2 months?

They are SO close:

$904 of $20.0M goal
Raised by 50 people in 9 days

At this rate, it will only take 60+ years to reach their goal!
