    For the life of me, I do not understand how investing in the parks is something they are afraid to do. I don't see the reasoning behind significant cuts like those.

    Hista and eo are examples of why using pop stars in theme parks is shortsighted

    ... Rick Moranis counts as a pop star, now?

    It's not a matter of being afraid, it's a matter of then not seeing a reason to. Theme park attendance and profit continue to rise, why invest more?

    I can't believe I am saying this, but if further investment continues to cause harm to the parks identities as they have been I would rather have them do nothing.

    Chester and Hester do qualify as a Six Flags style area...

    Then. That being the point. It creates a sort of built in obsolescence. See Energy for latest example.

    But it's true. Look for another job! It's not that hard.

    Um, it's not as hard as it used to be. But it's not like Peter's saying quit and wait around hoping someone else hires you, keep the job while looking for something else ... it's called going to school to better yourself or actually making an effort to find something else. It's not really a naive mindset. I live in a small town and there are a ton of job postings. Tons. Jobs are out there. And especially in the Orlando area. It's called making an effort to better yourself instead of complaining about the job and pay you have. People make themselves feel stuck. I used to feel stuck too.

    Personally, if they cut the funding for new attractions but keep the funding for the Central spine, I would consider it a victory. New Attractions can wait for a new management team that understands and appreciates the park for what it is supposed to be.

    What are you thinking about when you say it "Used to be". Most entry-level jobs these days are meaningless and you could have a machine do the same thing for a fraction of the price. The era of menial labor is ending. It's a shame American Industry hasn't figured that out yet.

    @MansionButler84 What're the odds they throw Guardians into DHS? You seemed to infer there has been some consideration for that park again.

    Toy Story Lane will be cheap but will still outdo anything Six Flags has.

    Yeah, I would never compare TSL to a Six Flags park ... Dinorama, yes. But Universal also has a bunch of carnival games all over the place as well.

    People love to overlook universals cheapness, Disney gets held to a much higher standard then universal does.

    I don't think you know what you're talking about. I know it's hard to understand, as I assume you are someone who pays thousands of dollars to meet a college intern in a mouse costume or to see robot pirates on a boat, but it's harder out there for people who don't make the money I assume you make. I don't think you have a grasp on the real world.
