They could use it as a haunted house for Frightmares and keep the Dracula's Castle facade for an entrance used only during Frightmares. Then get rid of Carousel Theater and update Lagoon Music Theater as the outdoor venue.
I like this idea. Patio Gardens has a lot of historic value. Back when Lagoon was hosting concerts there, admission was a small cost and rides were a la carte. It would be difficult to get people to pay for concerts, but a larger venue for the music shows needs to happen. I wonder though if Lagoon advertised concerts/live music from local bands or touring acts if they could bump ticket sales relatively inexpensively. Perhaps a late evening concert with bands being given an opportunity to play.
The Carousel Theater is too small for a more theatrical show. I miss the Music USA shows at Lagoon Music Theater. The selections from various broadway shows was better suited to the size of stage they had at the time. They were less pop and more classic.
