    Cedar Fair Adding In Park Advertising

    Their Platinum Passes are way too high. I suspect they will try pushing memberships like SF to allocate payments over time to create a more consistent cashflow.

    CF is probably pushing high EBITDA figures to distract investors from the firm's profitability level. I don't want to even think about what new sources of cashflow they will come up with to put into their parks. Hopefully not upcharge lockernazis.

    Well this sucks. Operations at Dorney have already degraded by a large amount over the past few years. Seems like SF is somewhat of an industry leader, in a bad way.

    Disney Parks additions/removals

    The Star Wars films do not really have any marketable foodstuffs like the Harry Potter films. There is the blue milk Luke drinks on the moisture farm in A New Hope, the snack sticks rations that Yoda disliked as well as Yoda's stew in The Empire Strikes Back. The live frogs Jabba eats in Return of the Jedi. The dead animal Jar-Jar tries to steal and the fruit he eats in The Phantom Menance, and the fruit Anakin and Padme dine on in Attack of the Clones. Can't think of any food in Revenge of the Sith. Then there is the blue bread Rey is paid with in The Force Awakens, aka A New Hope 2.0. The Last Jedi has the infamous Luke milking alien cow teets, which I do not think will sell well. Contrast that with the Harry Potter films with all the fanciful and magical candies and drinks they consume. Its something most IPs do not have.

    Disney Parks additions/removals

    Sounds like they are either overconfident or worried about further internet backlash against the Star Wars IP. Since they can't cancel the parks, they are cutting the advertising budget to not throw more good money after bad, or just being lead their hubris, which they have been ever since buying Lucasfilm. Personally I think they are worried since the success of the new lands are very dependent on how well received the next Star Wars film will be, and the last two SW films have had poor reception and alienated fans. Even Star Wars merchandise has not been selling well. Through some of it might be market oversaturation.

    Disney Parks additions/removals

    Disney has announced they will not market or publicly talk about their new Star Wars land, claiming they will be too big to fail. It is already weird that the lands are not based on any planets from the Star Wars films. I wonder if maybe they are cutting their losses considering the bad reception of The Last Jedi and how Solo flopped hard.

    Kings Dominion Removing Volcano: The Blast Coaster

    Sad to see such a unique coaster being removed. But the problem with uniquity is that it is expensive.
  8. I think it is kind of surprising as family activity pools are old fashioned waterpark attractions. Still it makes sense and can take loads off thd lazy river and wave pool. That one rendering looks like it was photoshopped by a kid, lol.

    Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone Replacement Ideas

    I hope they keep ET as it is the last classic Universal ride left, especially with how popular 80's nostalgia is. Not to mention the space left by T2, 3D.

    That will be hard on my palm trees. Just another example why Northeast winters suck hard.

    Batman & Robin: The Chiller

    At least part of Chiller lives on. It really is something how the two Mr Freezes have been so much more successful designs than Chiller was.

    Good to see they added those 2 weeks back.

    New Non-Attraction Improvement Suggestions

    My suggestion would be to improve the walkway lighting around the park. Some sections are very poorly lit.

    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    It is like that for every holiday anymore.
  15. The cheapest retheme would be to remame Rouring Rapids to the Batman villianess, Poison Ivy. Especially since there is plenty of her namesake's plant growing wild all over, lol.
