I really do love his philosophies, though. Every park in their chain is unique and have their own markets. I am glad somebody is heading the chain who understands there is more to a theme park than just roller coasters. His influence is clearly showing at KD, and not just in removing the "Fort Kinzel" signage from Flight of Fear's building. Tongue

I don't know for sure if Pat had been pushing for the refresh. I would think that she probably tried and Dick Kinzel, and the rest of his management team, probably had other priorities and delayed the request or simply brushed her off.

It does seem that Matt Quimet is paying more attention to the managers on a park by park basis.
