    There are some parks that just deserve to be demolished and built from the ground up because they are just so irrecovebly bad. I voted Elitch Gardens in Denver. There's no space to build. It's dirty. The employees are unenthusiastic. There's no real good rides. Besides the ferris wheel, there's no charm. It needs to go.

    <BR>So does Cedar Point. And Magic Mountain.

    A few years ago, I would've said Riverside Park (now 6 Flags New England), but it's really improved since it's been bought by Premier/Six Flags (except now the crowds are terrible!)

    <BR>Except Elitch Gardens. Of course another coaster would drastically improve it, but there's no space. It's surrounded by the Platte River that cyclists would want to keep pristine rather than have screaming people overhead, and several highways and large buildings. It's impossible. They need to just start over.

    i Say Astro Land in NYC thats not even a park u risk getting shot while getting there and muged in the entrance to the Cyclone also the rest of the rides are 89%dangers! get rid of it and keep the cyclone and beach but keep them cleaner!and the cylone safer!

  7. #7
    Yeah, I agree. Astroland is in the projects and its pretty frieky getting there. Id say 90% dangers. Haha. And its pretty tacky, too, at least whats open.

    The only reason to visit Astroland is for the Cyclone. It isn't the nicest place in the world. I went on a scrambler, and the guy left it running for 8 minutes. We timed it. I never get sick on rides, but after all that I thought I was going to barf.

    I'm reserving judgment until or unless I actually visit, but I've heard horror stories about Ghost Town in the Sky in North Carolina. Their main coaster is Red Devil, and a buddy of mine split his lip when they hit a bump on the <i>lift hill.</i>(That big a bump shouldn't happen on the track at all, but on the lift hill?!)

    LOL - I've been to Ghost Town - yes, that place needs to be torn down - that Red Devil Coaster is a JOKE!!! Come to think of it, Dollywood in TN needs to be torn down as well - yodeelleighleehoo!

    Among the worst park I had been to, Six Flags New England is one awful park, despite it has my #1 coaster.
    <BR>
    <BR>First, it's is very dirty. Ketchup on floor, what the ..........
    <BR>
    <BR>Second, 8 bucks for parking on sand and gravel, plus they didn't even bother to use the trams on Saturday, and raining too! Universal Orlando charges one dollar less, but with auto walkways, plus enclosed garages.
    <BR>
    <BR>Third, very very rude guests, line jumping is everywhere.
    <BR>
    <BR>Fourth, lousy park layout which creates choke point.
    <BR>
    <BR>Fifth, lousy and expensive food.
    Planes, cars, coasters......... anything fast.........

    This is Easy. Six Flags Elitch Gardens. Mabey their new slogan shoud be "Over Priced, Over Hyped". They have horrible staff too.

    Any park with Six Flags in the title. Bad food, bad rides, (Except for MM), and rude employees. Has six flags ever heard of theming?

    Well, I do think that Six Flags has theming, but it's bad theming.

    Theming or no: Six Flags parks do have horrible employees for the most part.

    Actually, i believe the moods of the six flags employees has to do with the weather and the ride they are operating. Operators on Goliath in April are invariably going to be nicer than operators on say a boomerang coaster in the middle of august.

    What Cedar Point lacks in theming it makes up one thousand fold in thrills- it's not a theme park it's an amusement park! Have you ever rode the Millenium Force? If you had, you'd never say another word of critisizm towards the Point again. Cedar Point is undoubtedly the best park in the world... and I've been to quite a few! (I'm going to CP again tomarrow.. oh the joy of rollercoasters!)

    <BR>The Millenium Force- Wow! (What else is there to say?)
    <BR>All at America's Rockin' Roller Coast.... Ceder Point!!!!!!

    Nostalgi, Dollywood is pretty bad. There best ride sucks! They have 2 coasters, one of which is not really a rollercoaster. The Tenessee Tornado really blows. For one it is very short and really has nothing to it. It's just like kiddy ride, but with loops. Very weak except for its hill which gives you the feel that you might hit your head. The only reason I had an OK time at Dollywood was because it was having and international festival and I got to see some Kenyan acrobats. Except for that, it was a bust.

    I was not real impressed with Opryland. Didn't bother me that they got rid of it.

    <BR>Six flags attempts theming, and its so horrible they'd be better off with actual LANDSCAPING like Cedar Point!! Also, ever notice how enthusiastic most Cedar Point employees are? Even if they are bored out of their mind they still make things interesting. Their staff is almost as good as WDW's staff, while Six Flags has the worst staff.
