If you look at SF Magic Mountain as an example, that park has come a long way in the last 6+ months. The park is clean and looks really nice, it has really turned the corner.
TP I know what your saying because just a year ago MM was still a pile of dung but, with the change in park Mgnt came a lot of positive moves.
Theres still a long way to go and a lot of bad press to live down but if they maintain thier current course of action and I believe they will, we have a lot to look forward to.
Will it ever be DL? No. Can it be a great park for everyone to enjoy again? Absolutly!
I guess only time will tell.
