I was just wondering who you thought was going to take over the company after Mr. Kinzel leaves. I can't really answer this right now, because I know of at least 2 people who would make awesome replacements.

I've heard talks of Jack Falfas being 2nd in line. Either him or me. ;)

When they moved him to a head position in the company last season, that's the first thing I thought. Why would they move him from West Coast operations to the flagship park's location for any other reason? The man worked at Cedar Point for years before going to Knott's. I bet he's next in line.

Please, please tell me that was sarcasm. If not, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard (and Chris, I don't care if "stupidest" is or isn't a word).

Anyways, I think it will be Falfas. Maybe Spehn, but most likely Falfas.

/\ Of course it's sarcasm. Do you really think I'm that dumb? ;) I thought it was obvious as a joke right away. I suppose not. :)

I think the new head of ESPN will leave and go to Cedar Fair.

Falfas or Sphen would both made excellent and very likely candidates, that's why I said I can't really choose.

I understand Falfas but why Spehn? That would be a huge jump to go from GM of Geauga Lake to CEO of the company.

I know, but Spehn and Kinzel have been working together for ages, I mean Falfas has been there too, but Sphen and Kinzel goes back, and honsestly I believe that Kinzel knows more about Sphen, more of what he's capable of ect.

Spehn got put in charge of GL not because he was lower on the chain, but because Kinzel knew that he would be able to handle the problems that would come with getting the park onto its feet once again. And Spehn has shown that he knows how to get a park back on the right track. Now I don't know near as much about Falfas as he was out on the West Coast, so I can't really say much there.
