I'm not in disagreement with you Tangaroa. I hate seeing Knott's lose all of its history and unique charm at the expense of some ugly new rides. The point I was trying to convey was that this trend of decay was in motion long before Cedar Fair took over, and therefore they are not completely to blame as some previous posters had stated. I'm in no way trying to defend this destruction of what Knott's once was, but instead am just trying to find some sort of silver lining. If the inevitable is that some historic piece of Knotts' charm is going to be replaced with a roller coaster, I would rather it be with Xcelerator or Silver Bullet than with Windjammer or Jaguar.
