  1. The Fort is one of the park's most iconic structures and needs to be protected. Hopefully we see more work on keeping it looking good in the coming year.
  2. I think with the state of the economy right now anything is possible. We could even see them merge with another company (like SeaWorld). I'd guess a few of the Paques Reunidos locations could be candidates for sales since they've been having financial issues https://www.parquesreunidos.com/en/global-operator/
  3. It's that time of year again! The 2020 Great ADVENTURE Calendar launches tomorrow! This will be our 14th year of wishes (and so many came true!)
  4. And then rehab the cars that are off and keep switching them out, so eventually they're all good as new!
  5. They used to do that years ago for rehab in the off season. We'd always see a couple of the cars removed like that from Prospertown Lake. I always assumed it was a balance thing, keeping the weight distributed as evenly as possible.
  6. Six Flags isn't spending money on this park, just making money from it. The money to build it is from investors in Saudi Arabia.
  7. I always liked the shooting galleries, and it was fun to every so often find the gun that either gave you extra shots for your quarter, or didn't work right and shot multiple targets at once. It was also fun with the old optical targets to snap a picture with a camera flash and set all the effects off!
  8. This is a park that they are just licensing. They won't have much to do with it other than collecting cash.
  9. I think just maybe Six Flags has a success on its hands with capacity crowds. Universal here in Orlando is also at capacity this weekend.
  10. This makes a lot of sense since cash is a possible source of transmission for germs, and with the nation wide coin shortage it will save the park money (businesses are paying a premium for rolled coin right now)
  11. Extras: Panorama Wheel
  12. Universal accidentally leaked the name the other day, and today they made the official announcement: This looks like a great ride, and the theme elements they're adding are really great looking so far. Can't wait to ride next summer...
  13. There are a couple of design tweaks we need to do, but I like some of the new features they added in this version.
  14. In case you hadn't noticed... WE JUST DID AN UPGRADE! Please let us know if you discover any issues with the new version of the Forums and Galleries
  15. We had the same one for YEARS in the bottom of our linen closet filled with bows and curling ribbon, next to all the rolls of wrapping paper.
  16. Back in 2017 the Chinese investment group was really pushing for hotels to be added, and artwork for the hotels at Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando has surfaced: http://entertainment.hetzeldesign.com/portfolio/giraffe-hotel/ http://entertainment.hetzeldesign.com/portfolio/seaworld-hotel-orlando/ To bad they never came to pass...
  17. They could always use the Fest Haus & Picnic Pavilion with heaters in the ceiling but still keeping it "open" on the sides for dining/events. That would give some protection from the weather while still being open for air flow for safety. They used them for Winter Lights.
  18. I was wondering that too. I'm sure he'll turn up somewhere...
  19. Since Mark Kane left they haven't enforced the rules as strictly.
  20. $125 for a carload of 4 seems a little steep to me, but I guess compared to the coat of "regular" concert tickets it's a bargain. Now if they can get Dolly Parton to perform with them on the song they did together, that MIGHT be worth the price.
  21. I miss the high end, limited edition stuff. Goodness knows I bought a bunch...
  22. Thank you, I try my best to write engaging descriptions and capture the spirit of what we're writing about. I have a lot of memories of the Aqua Stadium as a guest and as someone who worked there.
  23. The theme of every retail location now days is warehouse. The remodel they just finished last year at World of Disney was the same thing, making it all generic background for the merchandise to stand out. This has been happening for the past 10-15 years with everything going generic. McDonald's looks like Starbucks, Disney Store looks like Gap. It's the trend at the moment to take away anything unique and interesting about the place so you focus on the product, I guess so it's more like online. The pendulum will eventually swing the other way again and everything will go over the top decorativ
