Every time I go to the new Elitch's I always hear somebody talking about how they miss the old park.

I've gone every other weekend or weekdays for the past 7 or so years. Never heard one person say that.

Rumors have it that two different companies are fighting over the park, with bids over $180million.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

The last I saw was that only one person has stepped forward saying he'd put a figure on the table. I haven't heard that anyone is "fighting" over it.

I'm really glad they are selling all six parks as a package so some real estate owner in Valencia wouldn't just pick it off to blanket it with homes.

It's also too bad Six Flags put these up right after Cedar Fair bought Paramount.

I'm sure everyone will be running to SFMM and the other properties for one last trip before it closes and attendance will skyrocket.

I think they're talking about SFMM... but I wouldn't be all worried just yet about it leaving town.

NEWS: Elitch Gardens announces Ripcurl and new website!

Postby Homer » Tue Apr 10, 2007 4:30 pm

You know, this huge blip of news went unnoticed yesterday, but the sale of those SF parks has been completed to PARC and now PARC is in control and adding rides! So whats new for Elitch Gardens?

And, a new Elitch Gardens website has opened!

http://www.elitchgardens.com/ (still a work in progress)

The announcement for the new water slide is in the cheesy site intro video, that is all I can find.

Also, interesting news, it looks like some SF rides are still going to be named the same such as Mind Eraser and Shipwreck Falls. However, the Looney Tunes licensing has been ditched for the kids area to go back to its original name, StarToons Studios, and I assume Batwing will now be known as Aviator (according to Screamscape).

Well, thats all for now!

"The Elitch Gardens map, note the toilet bowl slide on the upper right hand corner of the park." IMO a bowl slide is not that great of an attraction. It just does not provide me with the thrills I desire. Anyways... Thanks for the news! I love hearing about new rides even if I do not like them :D

Wow. I never noticed how small Elitches is. It looks like it has hardly any flats. But that might just be the map :-\
