Daily Spin 7.22.08

If you haven't been following, the Halloween Horror Nights 18 website for Universal Orlando has been updating regularly. This year's website is a lot of fun - they present the crazed psychiatrist's "case files" and then allow us some insight into the patients treatment. There is plenty of scary audio and video to check out.

IAAPA's magazine, FunWorld, has a nice article and interview with Hong Kong's Ocean Park about their immense expansion plans for the property. The animal based theme park has been giving Hong Kong Disneyland a run for their money lately, and these mega expansion plans will only complicate matters for the Disney operation going forward.

Silverwood Theme Park has finally opened their new used coaster, Aftershock. This is Deja Vu from Six Flags Great America, for those who didn't know. It's a massive ride for a park the size of Silverwood, so it should have quite an impact on the park now that it's operating.

Head Spin at Geauga Lake is coming down in order to head to its new home in North/South Carolina. There's some photos in this thread on Geauga Lake Today. Villian is also being torn down now, a couple photos of that are located here.

Remy, from Pixar/Disney's Ratatouille has started making appearances at Walt Disney Studios in Paris. I'm not sure if he's a puppet or an animatronic (thinking puppet), but he's cute and shows up under a platter just like in the film. You can read more and see video here.
