Daily Spin 9.26.08

If you were wondering about any of the details of Disney Park's new "What Will You Celebrate?" campaign, I suggest Kevin Yee's article on MiceAge. It gives a lot of great details - for instance, did you know that instead of free admission on your birthday you can also have group fastpass tickets or a gift card for merchandise worth the amount of a ticket?

If you want more information on the closing of Hard Rock Park this article is a great read. There's a lot more detailed information, including some interesting (and scary, really) financial numbers.

Sort of on the same topic, struggling theme park operator Six Flags Inc has been 'downgraded' by Moody's Investment Services once again, taking their already 'junk' status even lower. Things continue to not look good for the future of the company as it is.

Six Flags Over Georgia is offering to give owners of a Hard Rock Park season pass a free ticket to the park - but only if they hand over the HRP season pass for good. A nice offer by Six Flags - but what if Hard Rock does open next year and makes the existing season passes valid again?

Work quickly continues on Sea World Orlando's new Manta coaster. The 'track switch' is now up, along with more supports. Orlando Rocks has a great selection of photos.
