    *Checks the timestamp on original post* While folks are encouraged to bring up old discussions, sometimes it's better yet to launch a new discussion, rather than dig something ~10 years old back up. :)

    Six Flags Offers Bid to Purchase Cedar Fair

    The U.S. has a Federal Trade Commission which oversees mergers to break up monopolies: a Cedar Fair and Six Flags merger wouldn't really flag on their radar however, when you consider Knott's Berry Farm, the most attended park of the two park chains, only ranks at #12 overall in U.S. park...

    Vortex is leaving Kings Island

    When they say "serviceable life", it is most likely a little of both: structure upkeep/cost and guest throughput. More importantly (and what I would suspect), the true reason for removing Vortex now is the length of time it will take to deconstruct and prepare the site for new addition. This...
