I remember as a youth watching this crazy religious show on a brand new independent TV station seeing this weird couple, one with gobs of makeup, pleading with viewers to send funds to help make this dream come true:http://www.tommyandjames.net/heritageusa.html
Since I was into amusement parks at the time I was bemused into thinking God could actually be running the roller coasters at your nearby park. Amazing, ain't it!
So I still don't understand that, to this day, the second-biggest corporation west of the Rockies doesn't buy and own Lagoon. Been there once, I was puzzled as to why they charge extra admission for most rides. I read it is an independent park, not owned by any chains, and based on one independent park in Iowa not having any big, fun rides and attractions, and since the Morg has lots more money than CedarFair, Six Flags or other amusement park chains, why can't they go for it?
Remember, Marriott once built and ran the amusement park I went to as a kid.
