The Orlando Sentinel has a fun story about Walt Disney World's cast member canoe races, now in their 37th year in Florida. I paddled in the CROW when I worked TSI back in 1990. Despite being on the MK West team, which supposedly had a "home river" advantage, we got smoked. And soaked. And my arms hurt for days afterward.
Cedar Fair's found a way to make millions of dollars during this recession. It's selling land. The amusement park chain pocketed $50 million by selling 85 acres of land next to Canada's Wonderland. A land for coaster swap? Maybe not. Cedar Fair said it will use the money to pay down corporate debt.
