Please forgive me if I've come off too strong with my comments. I'm not really the "Bitter Old Guy".  After 40 + years in the theme park industry, It can be disheartening to see the things you love die from lack of interest. Society is changing faster than the first drop on Outlaw Run, and there is little time to react much less stop and look backward. Being a realist is what I learned from Jack and his son Bruce. They don't get overly sentimental over what has been. That doesn't mean you don't honor it and think back with fond remembrance, but the reality is that people react differently as society has opened up more possibilities for them. Whether good or bad, it just is. The challenge is to learn how to present something that will touch an emotional button that will cause them to put down their phones and really take in something new around them. SDC sill has this power and I'm doing what I can to help. I know you all are too, in whatever way you can. You can't bring back that magic from the past, but you can help guide the magic that is now. O. K. I'm getting off my soapbox now....(he shuffles off mumbling to himself....)
