This whole situation is rough. I fondly remember watching those Discovery / Travel Channel specials and the number one waterpark was always a Schlitterbahn park.

... good


Hate to see any park close. The effect on the local economy, especially the younger summer workers. Not to mention the loss of the activity (getting kids today outside and moving).

New management. Revamp the safety program.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Eh, I don’t care. If the local economy takes a hit that’s a shame but this place should not be in business. Plus... if the local economy takes a hit and nobody has money then Jeff Henry will need to drop his meth prices and anything that takes money out of his pocket is good. :lol:

So by your logic any community without a water park means teens don't have summer jobs and they don't ever go outside? :lmao: :lol: #dumb #stupid #Idiocracy

^This

Plus, not only is that dumb but even if you subscribe to that dumb theory it should be noted that Oceans of Fun at Worlds of Fun is like 20 miles away and they don’t give free tickets to human traffickers.

What part of new management was missed? I never read much about problems with the park until the death. Seemed to have lots of fun, safe rides.

Great that people have another option.

I didn't when the "local" park (an hour away) closed due to poor management. Next closest was 3+ hrs and we never went.

Affected a lot in the area. Summer jobs both at the park and other businesses the depended on the visitors.

What part of me thinking your entire post was stupid was missed?

Yes, we read your post. Thought it was dumb. Didn't need for you to re-post it like as though we didn't actually read it.

There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between Visionland closing, which is the only park of its size in the area for miles, and a smaller-sized water park in an area that has similar attractions nearby.

I "get" that maybe you just don't know enough about what you're talking about, and that's fine, but please do not treat the people who DO like they are idiots.

Thanks.
