  1. I used to have a pretty bad opinion of what paramount did with the park. I never liked the movie theming and thought of it as sort of cheap and a gimmick. I could never get over the fact that any of the rides really had nothing to do with whatever name they slapped on the ride. Plus all is well and good at first when a ride is new and the movie is new and they want to promote both but what about when people stop careing about the movie. Or realize its a crappy movie. For example drop zone. Horrible movie, has nothing to do with the ride at the park so whats the point? Why have this ride named

  2. Yesterday we were at the park and while waiting in The Beast queue we were line jumped by 3 twenty somethings. This turned into an incident but before I go there, I would like to get the groups feeling on what we as park guest should do when we are line jumped. BTW, just to make it clear, I am talking about line jumping in the regular queue and not Fast Lane or paid line jumping.

  3. All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. If they want to line jump, they should pay for it like everyone else!!!

  5. I have a different view on the snoopy topic. I have a 3 year old. We typically go to the park on weekday nights, about once a week after work. He went during the day 1x early in the year w/ my wife when her neice was in town for the week, and we went as a family w/ other members of the family who went for a full day late in the season. As far as I know, the only times he's seen the snoopy characters were his two "full" day visits as they're not out in the heat of the afternoon. The 1 time I was with him, he was very excited to see snoopy and have a picture with him. He went and danced wi

  7. Just like Avatar...I can find good things & bad things with each of the park's owners. I could easily list 5 things that CF has done that I don't like...but the same goes for Paramount.

  9. While I do agree with many of these points, I thought of something interesting with the Peanuts debate. Also remember what the original theme was of ride now called Boo Blasters on Boo Hill? Scooby Doo, which debuted in the early 70's I believe. While there are still reruns of Scooby on television today, so too can you see the Peanuts specials every major holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentines Day). My point being, that both Paramount and Cedar Fair have used cartoons that debuted many years ago. But I have seen children of all ages who love Scooby, Snoopy, any one in

  12. Um no.. the Crypt is an excellent attraction... or is was before Cedar Point.. err Cedar Fair started messing with it. Just like taking the water out of BLSC for no apparent reason. No apparent reason? This is what I was talking about in my lengthy post above. You say "the Crypt [was] an excellent attraction ... before Cedar Fair started messing with it." I remind you that, even before Cedar Fair purchased the Paramount Parks, and even when that particular ride was still called TOMB RAIDER: The Ride, it was in a state of disrepair. Even under the Paramount flag, even when the movie tie-i

  13. You miss Paramount - I miss KI of the 1980's and complained about Paramount the way you complain about Cedar Fair. For example, it annoyed me to no end that they changed the logo and had the audacity to add Paramount's in front of the Kings Island name. In some way, what each of us grew up with is what we remember as the "best times for KI". But as I've grown older, and experienced KI through my young boys - I've started to realize that to them, KI still has a magic that is bigger than who owns it at the time. Each owner, I believe, is doing what they think is best for them as owners, the

  14. How is it possible that Camp Snoopy is flooded with young children hugging and running and laughing and dancing with the Peanuts' characters every day? The thing is, Snoopy and Charlie Brown are timeless. Spongebob is already old news.

  15. well They could have eventually changed it to just a Nick Jr area. Nick jr is more for kids, i think Nickelodeon is more for older kids. I would have loved to see some Yo Gabba Gabba characters running around. My kids love that show.

  17. Here's a list of things you should be doing if you decide to become a monster. If you: aren't sore or aching in pain by the end of the night haven't made someone cry from scaring them that bad haven't had someone throw a beverage on you haven't made someone think you are having convulsions/seizures haven't sweated off your makeup halfway through the night haven't dry heaved from pushing yourself past your limits ...then YOU AREN'T DOING YOUR JOB RIGHT. Being a monster in a haunted house requires inhuman levels of blood, sweat, and tears that you won't see in a lot of other jo

Brace yourself for a trail unlike any other... where a friendly Hoosier family hands you pop at no additional costs around every turn! And beware the coasters, where you may not find yourself slowing halfway through the course... Only at Kings Island's Halloween Haunt! Heh heh heh heh..."

  19. Having worked 3 seasons at Cedar Point now, I have countless stories I could tell that make me shake my head. The best probably came from this summer at Millennium Force, we had stopped a train on the lift (on purpose), and were down for a short period of time. I was working at the entrance during this particular incident, when this guy split off from his group (rudely) demanding to know why I wasn't letting them in. After trying to really explain the situation to him to no avail, I gave up and politely informed him that the ride had run out of gas. He said "Oh," and then went back to his
