Not likely. This paid leave will turn into a resignation, just like Chief Oliver of Brimfield.
I should hope no one tries this at Target. I've never seen a store with quite as many ceiling cameras as they have, but that doesn't mean anyone is actually at the helm monitoring them.
@Darcy, I agree. If Cedar Point had built a coaster the year before, instead of building the water ride, Shoot the Rapids, then, sure, putting in Windseeker at two Cedar Fair locations might have made sense. Amusement parks can't build two non-coaster rides two years in a row and expect to keep up a steady revenue of guests, and thus a steady increase of profits, especially in a tough economy. People are willing to cut corners and make sacrifices to have a good vacation. Build more coasters to make sure they choose your park as that vacation destination.
It will now be difficult, if not downright impossible for Cedar Point to catch up and then overtake the other parks for sheer number of coasters. Even if they would, and could, install a new coaster for each of the next few years, all the other parks have to do is build one every other year to stay ahead. Cedar Point's total land mass is minimal compared to other locations. If they don't consider shrinking the parking area, then they won't have the room for more rides. They had torn down White Water Rapids to make room for a new coaster, at the time, Maverick. As much fun as the water rides can be on a hot Summer day, the coasters are what really draws people to one amusement park over another.
As a former ride host for Cedar Point, it is still my opinion that they should move all non-Breakers hotel parking to off-Point, use their buses to shuttle guests onto the point, and reclaim all of the parking lots for even more rides.
Folks do watch the night time shows, but really only if they're still there while waiting for family members to get through the line of one of the big three (Dragster, Millenium Force, or Maverick) or for the Fourth of July.
