Have you been on the coasters at NY NY & Adventuredome? (I recall one time my class took a field trip to Adventuredome to do math problems after riding the rides....oh the memories)
And cool news about DLR asking AP's about star wars!
Finally in terms of Starbucks......I don't think it's a big deal. It's like Dreyer's ice cream that's served on main street or Dole (of the famous dole whip).
Just for the record, I usually wear roller coaster t-shirts unless I am at work. The lucky shirt just happened to be Cedar Point that day.
Please let ANY rumor for DHS come to fruition. That park is sooooooo small!!! Fingers crossed.
The unfortunate part is that it makes them really easy to pick on...and since I write a humor article with news as its foundation, they are a target that is easy to roll with, since there is always something funny to say about them.
Parks that I don't like typically don't get mentioned in this article at all (except for Elitches, which is my local park and my own to abuse).
You don’t see Celine Dion or David Copperfield doing that…
Also I heard that Penn & Teller are working on a new TV show back along the lines of their Showtime series BS. I keep forgetting the name of the new show for some reason, but I know that they filmed the pilot about two months ago, but it has yet to be signed by a network.
RE: Elitchs. If you are looking for the *great* Elitchs, you are about 20 years too late. That was the old park. The current one is awful. Yeah, it has some bigger steel coasters, but the place is absolutely souless; the old Elitch's was beautiful. And I also miss the Old Mister Twister, and the Wildcat.
Not to mention the whole reason for moving the park to the Platte River Valley was having enough space for expansion (not possible in old location). Yet Elitch's didn't buy up enough land at that time (when there was nothing else there), and let it get infilled all around it. So it is in the same bind as the old - and much nicer - park. Then they sold it to Six Flags and it really went downhill. It has been well over 10 years since I have bothered b/c it is such a rotten park.
I hope that everyone in here understands that Jeff and I are really good friends. We became friends while competing against each other in several of the Theme Park Apprentice competitions. He slaughtered me in TPA3, I beat him in TPA: Tournament of Champions, and we've been friends ever since. Jeff is probably one of the smartest guys I've ever met, with the most twisted sense of humor I have ever come across.
And, yes, I am paying James to say all of that...
Oh, and tying it back to one of the stories, Denver has quite a few excellent independent coffee houses.
