I think it all comes down to the old problem of Big Dick and his thinkers always figuring that they know better than anyone else what the market wants.
Rather than keep rides that people (gasp) have an emotional attachment to, or build some charming family-type rides (WWL V2.0?) they have to put in something that will only appeal to teenagers who drive in, misbehave, vandalize the restrooms, and spend no $$$.
Can't they figure out that this strategy isn't paying off?
Look GL was a hole. Some of the rides, however, were important to people. If they would somehow keep the rides at a nearby park, put it on the news, send out press releases, the positive press would gain them a lot of goodwill.
But what do we know? We're a bunch of internet dweebs. They're running the nations 3rd biggest (failing) amusement park chain....
