A frightful start to the day
Good morning, theme park fans!
A couple of notes to start the day:Arthur Levine at About.com recaps yesterday's conference call with Six Flags CEO Mark Shapiro. There's some intriguing information about the rehab of Six Flags Over Texas' Texas Giant roller coaster for 2010, as well as a warning about the chain's dismal 2009 attendance and spending results.Busch Gardens Tampa sent along a promo video for this year's Howl-O-Scream, showing a visitors running screaming through one of the park's mazes.
Can you do a caption contest for a video? I say yes, because this one demands it.
Damn, next time im wearing two pairs of underpants!
Lamar Odom's accountant visits the set of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"?

Great America in Illinois does not seem to be flinching when it comes to future worries. They seem to feel that they will be ok. Then again, its #20 in the North American parks on the right of this discussion. Another thing that they have done is connected themselves with a local resort/water park (like the ones you would see in Wisconsin Dells). It would seem to me that they are making moves that would solidify the park in Gurnee.
I think Six Flags needs to look at locations better before building. Atlanta is the second park to be flooded in the last few years, New Orleans being the other. Other national amusement parks like Walt Disney World make sure they have adequate flood measures in place. The financial loss has to be large from repairs and loss of income from closed gates etc... Next time I buy a home, I am going to make sure I am not close to a Six Flags, lol.

Unorthodox audition for the screamo band "Alexisonfire".
When it comes to flooding, SFoT has a similar issue when we see extreme rain events here in D/FW. Johnson Creek will jump its banks and flood the lower-lying areas of the park.
Is that… my parents! AHHHHH!!!!!!
Someone, anyone, please explain to me how any company can be $2 billion dollars in debt AND planning for new rides and attractions in 2010 and 2011. I just don't understand. I worry about going $2000 in debt and Six Flags just keeps spending.
