Theme Park Apprentice – Those wishing to participate in this summer’s Theme Park Apprentice design competition should keep an eye on the discussion board. I hear there is going to be an announcement for signups in the next couple of days.
And we have an appropriate prize for the winner of this round of the Theme Park Apprentice design competition: the coveted Minion Hard Hat!
Kings Island – The park has filed plans for a 5,000-square-foot building back by the Beast. I hate to think that they are building something that we don’t quite know about just yet. Although my guess would be a similar dark ride/roller coaster attraction as the new Wonder Mountain’s Guardian that just opened in Canada’s Wonderland.
Cedar Point – We are hearing rumors that Challenge Park is going to be shut down to allow Soak City to expand with water rides moved from Geauga Lake’s Wild Water Kingdom. I would also guess that they might get a 5,000-square-foot building as well. In other news, one of Cedar Point’s roller coasters is possibly going to be renamed to King James. If we are going to rename any coaster for an excessively paid, self-aggrandizing, home-ditching basketball player, then I can’t think of a better coaster to rename than Mean Streak.
Tokyo Disneyland – The Once Upon a Time Castle Show is now playing.
Kennywood – We love when we get the locals' view on their own amusement park. Although I have always wondered about a place that calls itself a Pitt. Where I live “Pitt” is a dark dank place that you wouldn’t want to go to. Although maybe there is something lost in the spelling and the one I am thinking of is “pit” and not “Pitt.” If that is the case, then I really don’t understand why they like Brad so much, I mean his wife is good looking and all, but you wouldn’t catch me walking around with a shirt that said Affleck or Sudeikis.
Kentucky Kingdom – While it is nice to see the guests so happy and energetic about the new park, I can’t help but think that maybe they put something in the water to make people move around that fast.
Help Wanted – To work in a theme park, it’s always nice to know a skill.
Frontier Village – Here is a video reminiscing about Frontier Village by the people who used to work there.
Star Wars – Here is the final installment of From Star Wars to Jedi
