    things come across as combative because they are words on a computer screen without the benefit of a facial expression attached to it. Besides- this is a "fan site" for a park. Anyone who gets overly passionate about something to the point they become combative- they need to take a few steps back, take a deep breath, and do something else. there are a ton of other things to be passionate about. That said... I post about once a month because... there are other things going on and this is recreational/not a priority.

    Sounds a little hypocritical to me...

    I didn't specify, the entrance itself is great but there's no plaza on the inside of the park lile what you see with the Valvavn enterance.

    I'm sure you know more about these policies than the professionals who set them. For real though. The point of no rerides is to ensure guests are taking the appropriate recovery time between rides. Kinda like adult swims at pools.

    We are talking about the entrance right by Magnum correct? That was completely reconstructed last year (2017) as part of the Cedar Point Shores project. Below is an image of the resort entrance I am referring to. Source: https://imgur.com/gallery/ITvUy

    It was given a facelift, but that back entrance has been open since at least 2004 when i first went.

    Wow incredible post. What you said couldn't have been articulated any better. The Foresight is strong with @King Ding Dong Another wise sentiment. Well stated @VortexBFForever @silver2005 I could argue you and @SonofBaconator are the ones being disingenuous. Using the "victims" to further your totalitarian agenda. In before you and your clique react with bug eyes on my post.

    The resort entrance (which is combined with the Magnum photo booth), is only a couple of years old.

    Its right by the resort enterance so it could be anything. Out of all the entetances in that park, the resort enterance didn't feel like it fit the CP standard. Its just my opinion but it didn't seem as welcoming as the other two and I would welcome an update.

    I think its a little insensitive to put quotation marks around the word 'victims' as if its opinion based. No. Those people were in fact victims, over 25 individuals were involved, a lot of them had to go to the hospital, etc. Victim is the appropriate word to call those individuals.

    You're leaving out a lot of context when bringing those up, important context that lends those things to be very different from the SOB incident. When you use the words 'with your logic', you must have picked up on the fact I bring up context. I acknowledged that people do, in fact, see likable things about Son of Beast, but I also acknowledge its problems. You're using your own logic which tells you to bring everything to its logical conclusion without acknowledging the great deal of grey area between being to cavalier about these conversations and ban all discussion about these items. Son of Beast and Flight Commander were problematic due to serious design flaws (SOB's was more than just the rose bowl, like using bad wood, letting the structure sway too much, not letting RCCA finish the ride, using heavy trains- and what's worse, the park knew it was operating a dangerous coaster and never, or rather couldn't due to its volatility, bring in a proper design firm to fix it). The rest were human error (people choosing to go in restricted areas, going on a ride with a medical problem, etc). Leaving that out in your counterargument is a bit disingenuous. I believe these conversations require more nuance to educate people the seriousness of these incidents. The fact you're arguing that I'm over-sensationalizing the victims and you're using air quotes around the word victims makes me believe you downplay them yourself. That's an example of what I mean by cherry picking. You seem to be defending SOB at all costs and just throwing the victims under the bus.
  14. I don`t know. Comcast seems pretty intent to invest in their parks. If they end up adding the Nintendo IP to the fourth gate I think it will be quite impressive. Spoken by someone who grew up playing Super Nintendo and N64.

    And the movie that Fox/Blue Sky made a few years ago was charming as it can get. The contemporary pop songs used throughout felt out of place for The Peanuts, but the story and characters were pure Schulz.

    Kings Island Nominated for Favorite Holiday Park

    One of the Six Flags parks was #1 for what a day or two? And then I never saw it again in the list at all. That was kind of weird. Wonder if it was a glitch?

    I have had Zen rides but never a Zen dining experience until tonight
  18. It will be cool, but I'm not holding my breath too much. I think it's just going to be replacing the childrens/family area. It could be really cool still, but I don't think it's going to be a groundbreaking experience for adults to enjoy. I don't think it will be anything on the scale of the Harry Potter attractions.

    Yeah... if you get hurt walking/running it's your own fault. If you exacerbate an unknown pre-existing condition because of multiple rides in a row it could become the parks issue.

    Apple wouldn't be investing in creating new Peanuts content if they didn't believe it wouldn't make them money... http://www.fox19.com/2018/12/14/apple-strikes-deal-produce-new-peanuts-content/

    The rose bowl was the problem. I believe most knowledgeable people understand that. I wonder if they could have redesigned that aspect of SoB in the beginning, especially with all the money they ended up funneling into the coaster throughout the years. I do believe you are over-sensationalizing about the "victims". A train derailing the track is very serious, that said it could have been much worse. With your logic shouldn't talking about the Eiffel Tower, Firehawk, Lion Country Safari, Oktoberfest's pond, and Flight Commander be even more taboo?

    I just feel like the victims of Son of Beast get glossed over too much when it comes to those who constantly bring up positives without acknowledging the negatives. I'm not saying to not talk about it, I'm just suggesting people be more comprehensive when discussing it. For all the talk about how much it was an 'engineering marvel', it still that led to a few dozen people being sent to hospitals, many of whom may never and/or be unable to ride a coaster again. I don't give it that kind of credit when clearly it didn't do what it was designed to do in a safe manner. Well designed things don't have those kinds of problems.

    You want to censor Son of Beast discussion? The ride that must not be named ❌ As for what I want, I want a Golden Goose!

    Mason Ohio. I guess they believe no rerides are the lesser of the two evils liability wise..

    I thought about that actually and I'm still considering adding it

    @SonofBaconator Shouldn't you add backwards Racer to the poll options?
