  1. Quick up date. Ground breaking will be this Friday at 3pm. Ill be there camera in hand!
  2. Yep thats them. And hes also purchased a few others locally. Their sitting in storage on porperty.
  3. It was anounced last week that all permits and rezoning have been done. And Waterloo Iowa is getting a 100 million dollar theme park. The owners of Lost Island Water Park which was voted No.2 in the country by USA Today Travel. They also own the Lost Island KOA Camp grounds. As i get more details Ill keep you posted. Good news for me I live 10 mins. away!
  4. 29yrs. Its sad when you think about it!
  5. kinda reminds me of Best of the West. And yes I would seeing how the park is really a multi day event.
  6. OMG! she is a sweetie! Im so glade that Safari is still with us. And that Six Flags never closed it.
  7. Shame a lot of it got scraped. Parts of it could have been used for Man and Machine. And use the I-max in the Empty Theater .
  8. Cyborg is a flat but. Im thinking not everyone wants to go upside down.
  9. Im still lost as to how one has a preview, with the attraction not running.
  10. Ok 29yrs you first with a park hopper is one park at a time for the cheapest and no rentry, un less you want to use another swipe. In other eords one park aat a time. Then you have the next which is unlimited hopping. And most would go broke, buying them for a family of 4. Now GA for Mickeys Not So Scary and Christmas. Yes they close the park. at 5pm and reopen at 7pm. And even reosrt quests must have a seperate hard ticket for thses. Belive me worked MK guest relations and it was a mess.
  11. Agreed. But the numbers only reflect the turnstile counts. Not the actual cash day only. Which MM gets more. So the cash intake for there is more then GA. And I think alot has to do with Season Passes. Before them we were the third most visited theme park. And made money every year. Now dont hate. just a fact. I also belive that Holloween, and Holiday in the Park. Should not be included in the passes.
  12. We did that back in 74 and 75 when the water was higher. Not to mention we had more logs on it. And we ran all the pumps and the logs never bottomed. Six decided to lower it and not use all pumps(safety). But I think it causes more wear and tear on the attraction!
  13. Cant wait! Hoping to see a photo of the Runaway Mine Train. Before the second bunny hill was removed....
