^ I am unconvinced that valedictorian automatically equals "not a dummy." But, in any case, I wasn't calling the guy stupid--just pointing out that the article makes it sound really stupid. But my conclusion from that was that the article was leaving something out, not that the dude was an idiot.
On the other hand, I was totally wrong on the international student thing. Guess I could have read the fucking article.

Get well wishes to him. Seems FL theme park are having a bad run of luck recently.
I would think it's because we're in the busiest tourist season down here at the moment. The only time that even equals business at the theme parks here is the week between Christmas and New Years but that's nothing like July here (nor is it as hot, ). Being hot and busy wears the employees down and makes them more prone to making stupid mistakes I would think.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay officially announced the re-theme of the Land of the Dragons area to Sesame Street Safari of Fun. Along with re-theming the exsisting rides, the land will feature Air Grover, a new family themed roller coaster and Rosita's Djembe Fly-Away swing ride. An another element of the land will be a Sesame Street character breakfast and lunch. And finally a new 3D movie will round off the new additions, "Sesame Street presents Lights, Camera, Imagination!" All of these new additions will open in the spring of 2010.
Below are a list of the new and re-themed attractions:

^ I updated the first post by adding the 3D movie. I couldn't find any info on the website about the movie. But all of our local papers have been saying the park would be adding the Sesame Street presents Lights, Camera, Imagination! 3D Movie.
Other than the 2 new rides I mentioned, looks like all of the old Land of the Dragons attractions/area will be re-themed to Sesame Street. So I believe LOTD will be no more.
