  1. Let's throw this into the mix (as I sit and contemplate the fuzz in my bellybutton).... How about moving that dipper thing, near Cleveland, to KI? It would be a nice, even addition for everybody.

  2. Lately there have been lots of topics and discussions about theme - of individual rides, of areas of a park, of theme v amusement for a total park. My question is - for you, what would be good theming? My answer: I like an area of a park to be themed: buildings, food, music - with rides lightly themed to fit in (for example King Cobra in the then animal/safari area) I have very little need/interest in highly themed individual rides.

  3. Who all thinks Surf Dog would be cooler if they had a big surfing Snoopy on top? They had the big Aang, so I think they should replace it with a big Snoopy!

  4. I do not need over the top individual ride theming either. I prefer an area themed and the rides to appear to fit into that area, even if it only means that the paint scheme & the name "fits". I also like it VERY much when the music in each area is distinctive...it sets the mood.

  6. All I can say is wow. That is truly outstanding, the Koch's are a class act. I cannot wait to get back to Holiday World this summer. On a slightly less happy note, if anyone still had doubts about whether some people will complain no matter what: All you can do is shake your head.

  7. Ok, so I went To Kings Island today. I went with my mom, sister, and friend Nathan. So yeah, here I go. I got there around 8:50AM. I stood by the front gate for a couple minutes, then saw Jonathan/jcgoble3 walking towards the entrance. I said hi, and then it was time for the national anthem. We then all headed to Diamondback. This would be a first time riding Diamondback for my mom and my sister. It was a walk on and me and my friend got the back row. As always, a fun ride. We then switched seats so we could stay on, because there was somebody waitng for the back. After that ride, we stayed

  8. JR, I'm going to be quite frank with you. You're an all around moron who keeps looking for our enlightenment with ever post you make. This forum at its core is one of the better ones you see with a great community in comparison to many MANY other forums. People like you that bring their all mighty and all knowing presence just damper every topic they post their filth in honestly make me want to read less and less from this site, which is a shame because I have been part of it since 2005. Do me and my friends here on this site a huge favor; stop lying, being a snob, being all around disrespect

  9. Ding ding ding, we have a winner*. Bryan Edwards (a marketing manager from Cedar Point) said just this at the ACE Northern Ohio Holiday Party back in December. He also added on that we'd likely see a competition of sorts between the brands to get a contract renewal for 2013 and onward. Guess that's where the Freestyle machines and Luminosity sponsorships are coming from. *Well, mostly. You're pretty much wrong about Pepsi being better.

  10. Since you could care less, you do care some. Unless you are just being careless and mean you couldn't care less. My guess is you do care some, or you wouldn't be responding. It's always interesting, by the way, just who has no specific on topic comment about threads like this one. Terp. just sayin'

  11. Why would Cedar Fair execs give away some of the company's most private information to a complete and utter stranger? It's like if I came to you and asked for your credit card number. Would you give it to me?

  12. Wasn't aware you had a crystal ball? I'd say we're more likely to get a new coaster some time soon than we would be to see anything done with Son of Beast besides have a wrecking ball hit it. No suits have spoken to you.

  13. And there are many, many reasons for that: Universal is a small part of a huge media conglomerate. The resort makes up only a small portion of the company's total profits. You pay a lot more to visit Universal than you do to visit KI. As a result, guests expect more (just as you would expect more from a Maserati than you would from a Chevy). Universal sees much bigger crowds than KI does. As such, they need to find ways to get large groups of guests on and off their rides as quickly as possible. Having lockers which are free for a certain period of time encourages guests to leave their stuf

  14. Never been on the aerial chase (but should soon now that my son is 44") but woodstock express has plenty of room for anybody's upperbody I would think, lots of room there, however on the leg side, the cars are fairly short. I'm not the tallest person in the world 5'9"-5'10" but I usually slide my knees over to my son's side of the seat so they're not banging on the seat ahead. I've never tried the pumpkin coaster (the smallest coaster in the park) as my son rode with his mom the first couple times last year, then his cousin that usually tagged along with us before growing tall enough for The

  17. Why the heck would they put this "Coke Swelter Stopper" inside Soak City? "Inside the Swelter Stopper, frosty bursts of air and snow welcome visitors to an icy oasis in June." Yeah that's exactly what I want when I'm soaking wet, a nice frosty burst of air! I would, however, enjoy a nice frosty burst of air and a refreshing Coke if I were walking around the main, dry park. Seems a little off to me.

  23. theme the heck out of everything! instead of mickey heads in the reasurants, make them effiel towers with KI in the middle of them.The Beast and possibly SOB (if reopened) have what looks like a shadow of something big running around in the woods get some trees to shake back and forth and in the tunnel have something roar at you in thier and when you get back to the brake run right before the station thier is a gaint beast. up-scale BLSC with all new state or the art technology. transfrom the dino walkthough into a FREE water ride or like a safri ride were at the end you get chased by a t-rex.

  24. Oh. Sorry. I feel silly now.... My bad for not putting in the right words and stuff Don't let the actions of a few put you down. Some people did not learn the old adage of "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." Keep posting things you think are funny and cool and have fun with it! You sir deserve a like, if I had one, I would give it to you.

  25. I wore the sunglasses and carried the smokes rolled in my shirt sleeve. To your point, yes, the things we think we have to have on us has gotten kind of weird. A couple of nights ago we went to a place where we would need to mute our phones for an hour. I opted to just leave mine in the car since I wouldn't need it. My wife assumed I had forgotten it and picked it up. I put it back. She was surprised. Then hers went off twice during the meeting. I've been married long enough to keep my mouth shut about it.

  28. Which does NOT mean he was not disabled. My mother died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. She could walk...about 15 feet. After which she was completely exhausted and out of breath. Assuming someone is as able as most of the rest of us based on appearances is at best ignorant (which means not knowing) and at worst a sign of arrogance. Not all disabilities can be seen. Perhaps the man in question WAS a faker, but there is a very good chance he was not.

  30. I don't remember where I heard it- but the -then- Top Gun roller coaster was being measured for removal when GWL was built for a possible north entrance. i don't remember where I heard that- look at my posts from 5-6 years ago and I might have put that, i'm not going to look. I does sit back by itself and they don't go out of their way to make it look nice. I'm not lending credibility to the original post of this thread- but I think that it does fall in line with what has to be brewing. Whether or not those conversations took place or not is irrelevant... any park-going patron knows that s

  32. As others said, KI is going to try to maximize profits, so they've surely taken the idea that sharing will happen (against the rules of the wristband, if there are any, or not) into account. They're obviously targeting a certain demographic with the wristband. Most likely, me. I carry around the same bottle of water all day and fill it up at fountains. I don't need soft drinks, I have water. I actually drink a lot of water and there's no chance I would pay $30+ for the equivalent volume of soft drinks during a day. I am also not interested in carrying around the oversized souvenir cup. Howev

  33. My wife was in line with my 2 year old to ride the little cars over in Planet Snoopy. There was a mon with a little boy and girl, both which had just bathing suits on. The ride op patiently explained that her kids had to have proper attire on (shirts, shoes, etc.) in order to ride. When the ride op told her this, the mom proceeded to go ballistic!! ( Ghetto as my wife called it.. ) talking bout " my kids already rode this @$$@ ride and they didn't have shirts on before and yadda yadda yadda. It got so bad that 3 security guards had to come over to subdue the lady, they cleared the ride and sh

  34. Too bad only one of you is SBNO. Really? Isn't this more than a little harsh and at least borderline cyber-bullying? I'm not saying that what Mccarthy said is true or not true but there's no need to attack in such a manner. Yes, really.If someone is willing to make outragous claims, back it up, or be prepared for criticism. If criticism is now considered "cyber bullying" I am most certainly gulity. If you consider using a enthuiast term, on an enthusiast site, "cyber bullying" I am also guilty. And finally, if you consider that to be bullying, life in the real World will certainly co

  36. I was wearing a blue CP jacket yesterday waiting at The Beast entrance right before closing when i get asked "Do you work here" by a guest. After i said no they walked away and about a minute later a group of kids come up and they ask "is The Beast closed?". I said that its open and they proceeded. How do i get confused for a employee twice within five minutes.
