I feel like removing any of these things (other than TNT) wouldn't free up enough space for something else better.

Really?  Removing Echo Hollow wouldn't free up a ton of space? ???

I have always thought Echo Hollow should go. Probably one of the most underused place in the park. Combine that space with the space currently occupied by TNT and you could have a whopper of a coaster.

There's no need to remove TNT.  Echo Hollow is more than big enough. 
But who said anything about removing anything

I would hate to see Echo Hollow go anywhere.  It has so much potential.

It needs a lot of work.  The land is being underutilized as is.

Ok, I didn't look at the list carefully enough.

But who said anything about removing anything

I believe I mentioned that, but, like most people, I know nothing.

I would bet that if they compared cost to use ratio over the year Echo would be a big loser. Last time I went to a nighttime show in the middle of the summer there weren't 200 people there and half them left at intermission.

I know what you are saying about Echo Hollow, but my family really enjoys the show in the evening...even though it is a repeat...I'd hate to see it go. I personally enjoy the shows as much as the rides and look forward to going to Echo Hollow each evening.

Last night I went to Echo Hollow for the first time in 20 years and that was only with 10 minutes left in the show so I could be there to watch the fireworks.  I looked around and really saw mostly older patrons there.  Isn't that getting to be too late for them?  If you are going to leave it, at least have a more entertaining show during the day, make it worthwhile having instead of just using it for an 1 1/2hr a night.

Too late for older patrons??? I don't consider myself an older patron, but I'm probably getting close enough.  Older patrons don't go to bed at 8:00.  My parents and in-laws go to bed about midnight which always drove me crazy when they came to visit.  By the time an Echo Hollow show is starting, I think families would want to get tired, cranky kids something to eat and a place to wind down before bedtime.  I never took my kids to the night show - they were ready to leave the park before tired, hungry, cranky, and whiny set in whether they realized it or not.
