What do you think the park would be like if Warner LeRoy still owned it?

It seemed like when Warner LeRoy owned Great Adventure most of the rides were for carnivals, but it was well themed. It wasn't untill Six Flags bought the park that more permanent, thrilling rides came to the park. Also, Six Flags made the themeing became more generic. So, what do you think would've happened if Six Flga never bought Great Adventure, would it be filled with carnival-type rides today but with more themes?

I think he would have kept the park fresh by continuing to lease rides and bring new equipment in for just a year or two. I think he would have done a lot of shopping at Oktoberfest in Germany and we would have seen some wild contraptions that may not have been long term but continually updated.

I think it would still be an enchanted forrest. He probably would have added all the thrill rides and coasters, but would have done it using the forrest to make them more exciting instead of demolishing the forrest.

I think that carnival mentality would still be at Great Adventure. None of the thrill rides now, would have never existed if Warner still owned Great Adventure. Most of the rides today would be more like Runaway Train (more family rides). I also believe the original plan for the park would be attempted, and the park would have eventually reached "Disney World status" with the different areas of the park expanding.
