  1. I never sleep anymore. A few nights ago I was on here literally waiting for someone to post so I would have something to read.

  2. For someone like me who lives 4 hours away from Kings Island and only gets 1-2 visits per year, Fast Lane passes are worth it. We are not rich by any means, but in order for us to really get the most out of our day there, we invested in them. It was so great to be able to ride all we wanted and squeeze as much into one day as possible without standing in line for the majority of our day. Now, if we lived closer and could visit more often, we probably wouldn't fool with the passes. Not to mention we drive 4 hours there, stay in the park all day and then drive 4 hours back home. If I'm goin

  3. I got off work at 7:30 this morning (night shifter here) and had planned a short couple hour trip to the park. We made it to the gate at 8:50 for the ERT and got to hear them play the Star Spangled Banner right before they opened the gates, which I didn't know that they did that. The first stop was Diamondback and got in 4 rides on it, including one ride with Mr. 7000. I love that coaster! My nephew was with us so our next stop was Flying Ace Aerial Chase. It was my first ride on that coaster due to being right at the maximum height. I thought it was OK, I wondered if it was buil

  5. On June 19, I went to Carowinds. Yes, I realize I am over a month late, but I've been busy. Okay, here we go. I didn't really want to pay full admission and I didn't want to upgrade to a platinum pass because it will most likely be only Cedar Fair park this year (besides KI). I decided to try the Starlight Ticket and hope for the best. At 3:30 we stopped at McDonald's because the last thing I wanted to do was buy food in the park. We entered the park at exactly 4:00. First stop was Vorex. Why? I've never been on a stand-up roller coaster before! Ride Reviews Vortex- 8.5/10, Wait Time- 0 min

  13. You know your zero to SoB comment was mildly amusing the first twenty or so times, but has run its course in my opinion. It is especially annoying now when you are the one bringing up SoB and then using the line. Let it rest.

  17. Totally hookied today and went to the park. 45 minute wait was the most for a ride. WindSeeker, and Drop Zone are working, I didn't get over to Action Zone to see about Delirium, but I could easily see Invertigo was. The changes to The Racer are great, the divider being gone really opens up the place and gets people out of the way faster. I rode The Beast without having to claw onto anything to keep from being rattled. The ride was magnificent. The new track made the ride so much better, I could really enjoy it. All of the ride attendants- well, all of the workers- were amazing with their a

  20. ^ It must have been deleted. In a nutshell: guest used cell on Voyage. Ride op confronted guest and explained cell phones are not permitted on Voyage & free lockers are available. Guest did not like being confronted & accused ride op of harassment. Guest felt compelled to post this on FB. HW answered guest in a black & white tone that it is policy on signage, loudspeaker & website. Guest did not like response. HW responded that safety is priority and there is no leeway. Guest & others accused HW FB response to be unprofessional.

  21. Fastlane riders choose whatever Racer they want to ride.Rex was told he couldnt ride the Red racer because he was standing in the fastlane line without a fastlane pass,thats why he was told to go to the end of the line.

  27. They're Janitors in 3, Handymen in 1 and 2. Also, I call RFYLCB, "The Log Flume" due to the fact that there are no other log flumes in the park . Congo Falls is a Shoot-the-Chutes type of ride if I remember correctly.

  33. Thanks for sharing the details of your story - I find it possible that they are continuing to experiment with Fast Lane and how to make it work best (as they did with the SRL on Diamondback on '09 and '10) One thing that strikes me as odd is that you were told to go to the back of the line. Hadn't you just come through the line - why didn't the attendant just direct you to the blue side versus red? My experience this year is that there has been one line for GP and the new line for Fast Lane, but these meet at the entrance to the station where either line could go to either side. Is it possib

  37. Consider this next time you're waiting 25% longer in line: Those people buying Fast Lane passes are getting you 25% closer to waiting 25% longer in a line to ride a brand new, double super happenig flat ride or coaster.

  42. ^ I believe comparing FL cost to healthcare cost is the definition of apples & oranges. The FL issue is one everyone faces everyday. Who can afford what. It's not geared to the rich, and those who use it are not necessarily rich. Some will justify it, others will turn a blind eye to it, and some will despise it. When it comes to money, there will be hurt feelings (often unintentional), as well as jealousy. My wife & I work full time, have 2 kids peeking into the teenage years, and work OT to live the lifestyle we want. We do not get FL as we have had season passes to both CP &a
