Cypress Gardens closes its doors... again
After two years under its latest ownership, the Winter Haven, Fla. theme park shuts down again. Details on the Discussion Board
It's really sad. If it wasn't for the hurricanes that hit it, the place would probably still be open.
As beautiful as CG is, it's really a dinosaur in terms of theme parks go. The only viable option is to let the city take over the property and turn it into a regular park for the locals to enjoy. Most folks who visit Central Florida don't come to see flower gardens or Ski shows anymore. Unfortunatly this place has run it's course and needs to find a way to keep it's gardens available to the public and avoid being taken over by land developers who will turn it into condos.
