  1. A lot of people agree with you on this, Mr. Roberts, especially about saving the station. They could do a lot with it. Lot of territory there will be vacant once that ride is down.
  2. But this isn't unexpected. At least I figured it was coming sooner rather than later. Leaves a lot of space for something new.
  3. I saw that as well, Mr. Roberts, but I don't put much stock in their predictions. No one can predict that far ahead. Too much is wrong even on daily forecasts.
  4. Hope you have fun, Mr. Roberts. Be safe.
  5. Wow, completely lost track of time, Mr. Roberts. Been overwhelmed of late and I swear it was just January last week.
  6. I must admit to being surprised when this was on the news last week, Mr. Roberts. Long time since we were there, but the rides were always busy. It is a lot of work with the flooding, but still sad to see it come to an end. No Halloween, the news said, but it didn't mention Christmas lights on my local news.
  7. They better hope for a mild winter if they want to get this thing done on time.
  8. I remember this, Mr. Roberts. Horribly sad. I heard that park is not open this year at all and the owners are in some kind of other difficulties.
  9. That sounds like a lot of fun, Mr. Roberts. No wonder you have such a variety.
  10. You definitely have an unusual collection, Mr. Roberts. I still think that song is funny.
  11. Funny, Mr. Roberts. With a disco, disco duck? Or are you too young to remember that?
  12. Guess eventually they'll have to announce it, Mr. Roberts.
  13. Well, this is interesting, Mr. Roberts. The lasers I could see laser tag? But bubbles? For children, maybe?
  14. Didn't think about that but you're right, Mr. Roberts. For some reason, Polaris reminds me instantly of the kids' movie, The Polar Express, with Tom Hanks. I watched part of that when it was on tv but it seemed quite odd; guess I'm just too old. If it's going to be a giga, Orion seems appropriately spacey.
  15. I saw something about that a week or so ago, Mr. Roberts. Don't recall where as I scan so many news sites. I like both names, but maybe Orion a bit better.
  16. If you get a chance, do check out Holiday World, though the terrain is not kind. It is such a pretty park and the drive down, once you get past Louisville, is very scenic. Again, awful heat when we were there, 114 degrees heat index. We spent two days at a hotel in a little town and took our time because those hills. It just seems well run and Santa Claus the town is fun to explore. Also the Abbey and a nunnery, not sure what it is called, but incredible architecture and so old. We had fun despite the heat. At that time drinks were free, all you wanted. That helped. Good food too. But that was about 15 years ago as I recall.
  17. I do know some folks in Cali but not well enough to stay with. Distant relatives haven't seen for decades and not likely to at this point in life. Never been much interested in going there. Prices are outrageous for everything there, I do know that. Are you able to drive distances still, Mr. Roberts? I hope you are able to go as many places as you can, but hopefully you have someone to go with. I forget if you've been to Holiday World. I know we have mentioned it but don't remember. So hilly but a nice park and so clean.
  18. Looked back at the link. Can't believe how much I've forgotten about over the years. That does seem odd, Mr. Roberts, that they included Monster. Ya never know. Used to love that thing when I was younger. First ride like that I ever rode was at a county fair decades ago, though it was somewhat smaller I think.
  19. Thanks for the correct information. Had forgotten about a lot of rides that are no longer there.
  20. Wow, that's a lot of pictures, Mr. Roberts. And all of them excellent. Not a lot of people there it seems. Last time I went on that pass night it was also cold and rainy. Quite miserable and we wore winter coats. The new antique cars are so bright and shiny. Not sure about the Skylab Cafe name. Even fake it seems not a good idea. While I like the look of pavers, they make it difficult for people with disabilities/age issues to traverse. Smooth surfaces are a lot easier for wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, or just older walkers. And are the fountains just staying full time on the low bursts? That isn't remotely appealing and seems rather odd.
  21. I know a lot of people who have missed this and will be happy to see it return.
