wow 15 years.. does AK even have 15 attractions?

lol i kid, i love the park, but seriously where's the love?
I remember going the day after Grand opening. Asia didn't exist/finished yet, the good 'ol boat ride and KS and CDTE we're original lol. Good times and even if they're changed they're still fun to me.
If Joe isn't going to be there, then honestly, I see no point in going. There's literally nothing to celebrate.
