    Ask him if he is going to leave the project behind since the state will not fund 50 million to him for the park or is he going to use his own private funding and get more owner ship of the park

    I think the better question is why did he bother bidding for the property if he was goign to require the Fair grounds/state to pay for everything. Dose he even have the funds available to move forward.

    Well it is the states land, it's always been the states land. He does have the funding, and I know thats their back up plan.

    I understand that. IF the goal was to have the State Pay for an cover all costs that should have been part of the original bid. If it had been approved with those conditions the funding would have been immediate and the park would have been operating by now.

    A serous question is - Would the park be willing to remove a low rated attraction like Twisted Twins to open up room for more organized path was and more attraction space.

    in the coaster pole Twisted Twins L, was 143 and, R was 148 basically the bottom 40 in the world.

    I was also thinking about this the other day. The submission deadline, even after the extension, is long over.

    Good to see something goign on. not sure why they are doing so much to expand the water park the first year. You figure they woudl want to spread it out and also do a bit more with the dry park.

    **** UPDATE ****
    According to a report just posted on the Abandoned Theme Parks Facebook page, where they are reporting progress on its renovation, it's also being reported that instead of being relocated, Greezed Lightnin' is going to the scrap yard, hence my RIP post above...
