Jeff, Carrie and Mike review this week's news in the amusement industry.

  • Obligatory excuses about why we haven't had a show in a month and a half.
  • As quarterly results come in for amusement park companies, the results just keep getting better and better. So how is it that the economy is allegedly so terrible?
  • How did Six Flags realize a 44% boost in profit?
  • The national tone toward the economy is so negative. From the tea bag to the occupy movement, no one actually seems interested in innovating or doing anything.
  • Carrie talks about perspective: This ain't the Great Depression.
  • Where did hamburgers come from?
  • Mike is a Disney Kool-Aid® drinking freak.
  • Jeff describes his drive back across the country. And his new drill. That thing can screw.
  • PETA sues SeaWorld for slavery. The whales are apparently making keychains 20 hours a day for sale in the gift shop.
  • Legoland Florida opened, and Jeff wants to go next year. Mike will skip it because his kids are princess freaks.
  • Jeff finally understands why Disney has so many parades. His 20-month-old loved the Halloween parade at Cedar Point.
  • Does anyone know the total number of boat rides inside the gates of Disney World's four parks?
  • The cast is disappointed about the no-duel rule of Dragon Challenge at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Despite the gruesome accident, we hate that it can't just be chalked up to "bad things happen."
  • Carrie gives a shout out to the staff of Dorney Park for the VIP tour service.
  • Several parks out east have their seasons cut short because of the crazy Nor'easter storm that dumped snow on them.
