Based on the reviews, hopefully they bought it to set it on fire and collect the insurance money. :lol:

It's pretty interesting what Cedar Point is doing in the area. The Sports Force Park and it's soon to open indoor addition, their collaboration with BGSU in opening a campus focused on Resort Management in downtown (lol) Sandusky, and these purchases along Cleveland Rd are huge investments in the community.

I have no idea what the grand plan is, but I wouldn't be surprised to see some of these properties used to create a year-round destination.

Heh that does look a little like me after going to Kalahari last week when the temps dropped below zero. :lmao:
The hot tub was lukewarm at best.

^^^^ Sweet, man, have fun!

^ Glad to have confirmation it's not an upcharge. That was the probability, but since it's replacing an upcharge, good to know for sure. It sounds like a lot of fun.

This reads like a version of what Knott's did with their Ghost Town a couple of years ago. Create "stories" around the town and have the characters interacting with guests, using games, 'missions,' and such. Worked so well they did it again last year, and are I believe doing it again this summer?

Glad to see this kind of interactive with LIVE characters area, that the whole family can enjoy. =)
