Looney Tunes is a bit out of step with todays youth, but the superheroes aren't, thanks to a flood of superhero movies the last few years. Got to give credit though...if these changes really do go through, than they will be steps in the right direction. I also heard that another demand by Shapiro during his visit to the park was that all coasters start running at maximum capacity...another piece of good news. No Looney Tunes isn't in the best position, but it surely is better than nothing.

By the way Robert, you are right about Paramount. Nickelodeon is one of the most well known brands around...dare I say as much or even more popular today than Disney. Paramount is making a big mistake.

If Shapiro gets the coasters running at capacity, then I promise never to say anything bad about 'ESPN Hollywood' again. ;-)

I think Looney Toons still have somewhat of a chance, but they are no Mickey Mouse or Jimmy Neutron. I think it is good that Six Flags is trying to improve. Being the only park in my native Illinois, we have a love for Great America. Also, from what I have seen on this site, it is also one of the better (at least cleaner) of the Six Flags Parks. Though I love Disney World, there is always a place in my heart for Six Flags!

Look - I went to Six Flags Great America with a little kid once. Never again. They should just put a big sign out front - "Under 8? We've got two things for you to do at Six Flags. Jack and S***."
