^Sad but nice at the same time, as I'm sure you're ready for some days off!

So what do you have to do to get the park 'ready' for the cold snowy off season?

^^I like that picture. Kind of a nifty idea for the end of the season.

Hopefully we can see some new shots of the park from this year? ;)

I had no clue that the idea phase to creation occured so quickly for you Shane. Then again your decades in the industry gave you move insight than those of us sitting on the sidelines.

That's a great article, Shane. Congrats on the success of Cowabunga Bay. I'm surprised at how fast it went from concept to reality.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!
