Wake me up when something actually HAPPENS.

The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist...

WAKE UP!!!!

Ok, maybe not. But the rumor is that Ed Hart (of Kentucky Kingdom) is interested in the B&M coaster for his park.

Sounds good to me, though I'd much rather see Hard Rock open back up. I just don't think there is much of a market for a full fledged amusement park in/near beach towns.

Open gate parks/piers? Yes. Closed gate, expensive parks? Not so much.

Noooo, Maaaaa...I don't WANNA go to school today.

I'd love to ride Zep again, but I doubt I'd enjoy it as much without the soundtrack, park visuals, and theming. I thoroughly enjoyed that ride.

I didn't even think of that in that way, and you're right; I can't even think of an exception to the rule. All of these full fledged expensive US parks are in a major city, or atleast within it's suburbs.

That would be great. Zep at KK just might get me back down to Louisville again.

Zep plus a Twisted Twins re-furb for 2015 will get me down there - no question.
