Dear Big Daddy Disney and Sweet Mama Six Flags,
We’ve been really good, working hard to make this city great. What we’d really like for our birthday is a real, full fledged amusement park! Sure we have flight lines at Fremont Street and the roller coaster at New York-New York and even indoor skydiving on the Strip, but what we don’t have is an honest to goodness theme park. With our high tourism and the increased number of families who’d choose Vegas, our economy and your business would be booming!
Well, that might be pushing it, but for those who want to enjoy the entertainment we have, there’s always….
