Take! As long as said flat is King Chaos, then I'd be more than happy to take that deal!

T/L: Both parking lots removed. Front parking area converted into a parking garage complex, but with higher prices. Back area is converted into a large Ravinia-style outdoor amphitheater for numerous concerts and events, but with an upcharge.

Leave. Not necessary and would be an eyesore

TOL: Burgers from all park restaurants removed from the dining pass but JB's Wings, brisket sandwich from Mooseburger, and Dippin Dots added?

TAKE. Me loves Brisket :)

ToL? Six Flags builds a McDonalds mini cafe with seating, wifi, a/c, and charges a twice as much than a regular McDonalds restaurant but cheaper than the rest of the eating places in the park.

Take. It's time for a new flat.

Take or Leave: The park opens in April which means dead crowds usually and no kiddies but you can't use your season pass until May so you must pay for gen admission.

Leave. I don't want to pay full price for April dates.

Take or Leave - better food options and way better service, but dining pass price goes up 20%

Take. As someone who doesn't go only once per season, that could come useful.

Take or Leave: The park increases in size due to a new flat/coaster/area and spills out into the parking lot which means less parking spaces.

Take. That might encourage carpooling and/or Six Flags could acquire a remote parking lot with a shuttle.

Take or Leave: LIttle Dipper

Leave. I almost never eat at the park aside from the usual funnel cake sundae or if I am feeling lazy and don't want to leave the park to eat elsewhere.

Take or Leave: The Haunted Houses the park sets up for Fright Fest.

Take! It's a nice and calm alternative to the park which also attracts those that are not avid fans of coasters so the park can still attract another demographic to bring in revenue too.

Take or Leave: A putt-putt or mini golf course with fountains, scenery, waterfalls, trees, the works.

I'm guessing you're referring to a golf course at our park? If that's true, then leave (but I do like mini golf)

Take or Leave: Free refills on soda

Take - From a personal perspective, this would be extremely enticing. From a business perspective, the park may lose on revenue. I would still take.

Take or Leave - Bumper Cars at out park
