I wonder if the city of Denver would be willing to put some money into Lakeside based on this. I haven't been there in years, but if it's still basically the same as it was, it could really use some love.
I want to say I am upset at this but I have visited Denver several times and Elitch doesn't appeal to me. It is a bad ride catalog in prime real estate with a good view of downtown Denver and the Platte River. Casa Bonita and Elitch will end up as the only attractions that I will probably never visit in the area, yet I have made it to both Lakeside and Water World multiple times. I am not saying Lakeside is much better than Elitch but it has some flat rides I can't find in bigger parks.

If Elitch closes, they need to send the Arrow shuttle to Frontier City in Oklahoma City and reassemble Lightnin' Loops.
I kind of liked the location, but given the current constraints and lineup, I wouldn't mind a move if it means fewer coding restrictions and being able to add rides that aren't just off-the-shelf models for once (maybe rebuild Twister without neutering the helix?).
