Is it like this at the other SF parks, or is Great America just the exception? Yeah, its no Disney, but the place is clean, the rides look great, updates abound, and the only stuff that needs improvements is guest relations and food.
Also, SF Georgia wasn't really in a flood plain. IT's just an extreme amount of rain fell in a short time. It was around 17" near the park in like 36 hours, and I think most of that was in a 12-20 hour stretch. Anywhere is going to flood like that.
SF's problem is they tried to expand too quickly and couldn't keep up with it. Besides, all the parks are nearly the same, just a few different rides, but basically the same idea, and so many are close to each other.
On the Texas Giant news, Im excited. Ive seen El Toro and thing the theming and ride itsself are a testament to excellent ride design. Im also looking forward to the replacement of the breaking system, as it is currently a total pain for all involved.
How do I get in line for that type of economic protection?
