April 1983

Well Excalibur has been open for 2 weeks now, but I wasn't able to get there until today due to my job.

My thoughts on Excalibur: Awesome! The coaster has some great pops of airtime, especially since it's nothing but airtime hill after airtime hill. The trick track is kind of a unique element, but it doesn't add much to the experience. I highly recommend riding Excalibur in the back row!

Here's my report:

Octopus is closed off and has its signage removed.

I wonder where this crowd is heading to

No more walls blocking off the Excalibur section!

I decided to check if Excalibur affected the other coasters popularity, Twister's line has gotten a bit shorter, but it's still a popular ride
20181121203544_1.jpg
Runaway Express is still very popular! Makes sense since this is the only coaster that families can enjoy due to the 42" height. Excalibur and Twister are both 48" rides.

Ending this report on this shot of Excalibur. I'll be waiting for the back row now.

Nice update. I wonder what is going on with Octopus? I'm betting it's being removed for a new ride...

July 1983

I'm starting to hear rumors that Cypress Adventures is starting to do poorly financially and they closed some rides to save some money. I decided to check out the park to see what has changed.

Octopus and its queue was removed.

On my way to grab some lunch at Joe's Tavern, I saw that they're teasing a 1984 addition. I don't know if they are making a good choice to push a new addition for next year, I guess we'll see soon.
20181126132905_1.jpg
I think I'll skip Excalibur this trip...
20181126132942_1.jpg
Big Wheel was closed

Runaway Express just reopened after a breakdown, so I took advantage of the empty line

Rodeo was also closed.

NAME THE NEW LAND!

Cypress Adventures is hosting a contest to name the new land that's coming in 1984!

The name must meet these requirements
-The name must be a pirate theme
-It must be 2 word long

April 1984

Things aren't looking good for the future of Cypress Adventures. Rodeo and Big Wheel are still closed, but Skyrama and Runaway Express are also closed too with no word of reopening. I checked out the new Caribbean Port section of the park and it was pretty much deserted. No one cared about checking that area out which is a shame because it's a really nice area. I probably won't be visiting this park as much this year unless things turn around.

Excalibur still has a lot of attention, unlike the new area nearby...

Lets check out Caribbean Port!

[b][u]August 1984[/u][/b]

[b]CYPRESS ADVENTURES ENDS SEASON EARLY![/b]

[attachment=0]20181230124356_1.jpg[/attachment]

This just in, The owners announced that Cypress Adventures ended their 1984 season early. We contacted one of the owners for an interview about this. Here's some questions we asked during the interview:

[b]Why did the park close early?[/b]
We didn't want to close early, but we had no choice given our financial situation. During this season and last, we had to close a few rides and lay off some of our staff because we were losing money fast. Ultimately, we have to close the park entirely for the time being.

[b]Do you know what was causing your financial issues?[/b]
It mostly factors into our recent additions like Excalibur and Caribbean Port. We wanted to make Cypress Adventures a park as big as Disney, but our impatience for that is what caused these issues.

[b]Will Cypress Adventures reopen for 1985?[/b]
We hope it will reopen for the next season, but it has to stay closed for now while we come up with a solution to our issues. We may potentially put the park up for sale if necessary.

[b]Is this the end of Cypress Adventures?[/b]
I doubt it. We will try everything we can to keep Cypress Adventures alive for everyone for years to come.
-------------------------------------------------------

Stay tuned for updates on Cypress Adventures

November 1984

Cypress Adventures put up for sale!

Just yesterday on November 18th, Chattanooga's theme park Cypress Adventures was put up for sale by the owners.

"We looked at several different options for us and the future of the park. We really wanted to keep the park, but putting it up for sale is the only option we have that can keep the park alive for years. We hope whoever buys the park will keep the charm it has now while also expanding it into a larger park than it is today." -Max and Rolfe Geffery, Owners of Cypress Adventures

Fans of Cypress Adventures are speculating who will buy the park.
