I love the "Fun and Only" song, always have. HATE the repetition and them using the same few flat ride pics on each commercial.

Doed anyone know anything about Dinosaurs Alive? I can see this having a good first year of two but after that it will probably die down...then does anyone know if Mean Steak will get Rocky Mountainified in 2013 or a different attraction or coaster.

^ Why bother even putting it in then? Lol I know if I was managing a park, I would want my newest attraction to have a life span of atleast 15 years, not 3.

The Dinosaurs Alive attractions are 1 million dollar investments. They charge $5 to experience the attraction. That means only 200,000 people to pay for it to become profitable. 3 years seems reasonable to me as looking at these things aren't something that people are going to want to do every time they come to the park... eventually they are going to lose their popularity.

^^ You also have to remember that they are going to need be maintained. If one of those breaks, chances are they are not going to be cheap to fix. Granted it will be profitable for maybe a year or two, but that's not something you should be spending a million dollars on. That million could have gone to general park improvements or towards another ride that would be more profitable.
