- This park is truly a hidden gem, and the parks theme and purpose should not change AT ALL
- That being said, invest some $$ into the park. Some new family themed rides (again, dark ride!!!) and a new coaster or two (again, themed to the park and it's purpose as a "family" park). Maybe a smaller wooden coaster like wooden warrior at Quassy (video below). This could be a GREAT addition to the park. Make it small like that one, but through the trees and gardens of Gilroy Gardens would be amazing. There is plenty of room for something like this near the Rock Maze at the back of the park.
Bear in mind that Cedar Fair doesn't own Gilroy Gardens, it has the operating contract only. Any major additions to the park are at the discretion of the actual owner. It was originally owned by a trust set up by the Bonfante family, but I seem to recall that it's now that it belongs to the City of Gilroy.
