^^No other attraction they have is going to bring in $10-$20K per day like DA did at Kings Island last year.

^Not holding my breath.

THAT'S WHAT I SAID!!!! CF these days... :p


I'll trust the opinions of the executives at CF that worked on the ROI analysis over the thoughts of kids not in the industry.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

Lol I am in the industry. While I'm not high up in it by any means, I am in it. :)

Anyways, did anyone else hear the 550ft 4D stand up rumor? ;)

^What do they know at Chick-fil-a?

Honestly, I don't see why a short term attraction is such a controversy. The shows there don't even last that long. Plenty of businesses, museums come to mind, have plenty of short term attractions that aren't supposed to last that long.

Not to be rude, but they are mainly just pictures of Sandusky and the bay. Nothing is really visible but the skyline and there is nothing that interesting about it. Sorry, but it may just be because I can look out my back window and see the same thing.
