I think you kind of were dead wrong about the themeing issue. CEDAR FAIR doesn't like themeing... But most patrons of parks do. If you don't believe it, stand in line for the Crypt and listen to how many people (adults, teenagers, and kids) would rant about how exciting the fire and ice are, only to hear "Wow..." after the ride ends.

 

And if patrons didn't want themeing, they probably wouldn't even bother with Italian Job, as it doesn't look very thrilling from any angle that you look at it. They see the fire, they see the police cars, they see the helicopter, THEN they ride it.

 

Entering into KI to a fountain-filled, french boulevard vs. Cedar Point's seagull poop filled pavement... There's an obvious difference, and everyone notices theme is just as important as thrills. Especially to the GP. We may just want bigger and faster, but they want big, fast, AND theme. Just look at FoF, really... Would the ride be half as fun if it were outdoors? I don't think so... Same with the Crypt... Even though the ride sucks, the queue really builds up anticipation and makes it fun.

See...That would be a perfect voicemail! Send them in People! :)
