You know Cedar Fair has a gem of an attraction that can get them a ton of publicity if they would do it right. Next year is the 50th anniversary of the Calico Mine Ride. It wouldn't cost that much to totally overhaul the ride so that every- thing works and looks great. Put in an awesome explosion at the end of the ride that makes riders scream, laugh, etc. I think Garner Holt Productions might have already designed one a few years ago. Also bring back the "heat" and look of the Pot Room. Really fix it up and advertise it like mad. I would even suggest putting in a recorded spiel in the trains thus avoiding some of the terrible live spiels I have heard at times. Even Walt put a taped spiel on his Mine Train Ride, and let's face it, the Calico Mine Ride is not Disney's Jungle Boat ride. In regards to the former Haunted Shack location, I thought when they took it out they were planning a great fun house type of attraction. How perfect that spot would be for a first class Haunted walk or ride-thru that could also be the location for a Halloween Haunt overlay each October. Ghost Town is going to stay, I think, because of its
atmosphere for the Haunt. Why not take advantage of it?
