  2. As one of Mr. Kinzel's harshest critics, I truly wish him a long, happy and prosperous retirement. His early efforts built Cedar Fair into a powerhouse. For that, we should be thankful. And the man loved a good coaster, or several dozen. He had great faith in the maxim "If you build it, they will come."

  4. I'll let others talk about Gatekeeper, I shall talk about what else is new in the park. Only the front half was accessible, therefore TTD and Gemini midways and Frointertown and Trail were not reviewed. For those who were there I was in the black DAFE shirt. Rides Corkscrews trains were repainted with red and blue on track. The words Corkscrew and Cedar Point remain on the lead car, however the design on the nose is missing. Millennium Force has finished it's three year repaint, the first hill is so blue now. Cedar Downs new floor looks nice and some of the horses have been touched up. Fo

  12. Well, today was the beginning of my weekend in Sandusky with Zach (TTD-120-420). Media day was incredible. Things ran smoothly, the press conference was amazing to listen to, and it was a beautiful day. Oh, and Gatekeeper, Here are my thoughts on Cedar Point's newest addition: First off, I would like to rescind any qualms or concerns I had about this ride. I was very questioning all throughout construction and what not, and I would like to take a minute to say that I feel like a fool for that. This ride is incredible. We rode it 17 times today, in nearly every seat on the train. In terms

  14. Thanks Tb!!! IMG_5247 by ki_faerie_wench, on Flickr Well had 4 spectacular days at SeaWorld, despite the rain the first couple days. Shockingly? I managed roughly around 5,000+ pictures, and as one of my LA friends put it "for you when it comes to SeaWorld that's not enough" Gee thanks, dude. The first day we pulled up to a quiet and extremely rainy SeaWorld. The rain did make seeing the animals more interesting as the dolphins and orcas love it when it rains anyway... they were all playing in the rain. During one of the morning breaks from rain I got my first ride on the Manta and oh my

  33. Because I remember, eidetically, the Van McCoy flash mob and retro-uniform crepe-paper rose sales of the 2008 Knievel Jump, I must ask: Will someone be serving Porkchops and Applesauce during next Sunday's "Brady Bunch" visit? There, I did it. [Runs for the door]

  34. Because Kings Island is not Cedar Point. It is not Universal Studios. Kings Island doesn't have to imitate other parks because they do just fine being unique.

  35. Given the fact that SOB's station still stands, I bet there's a more than good chance that it will become the station for the new ride, since it's a lot cheaper to touch up the station than build anew. CF is not going to keep a station just for Haunt. It was meant to serve a short term purpose until its new main purpose can be utilized much like The Bat station became Vortex's station. I do agree with you that that would make sense and save money; but, that station was made for a wooden coaster, not a steel coaster. They would probably have to do work around it to make the track fit proper

  37. Belmont Park Didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked with this one due to it being a downpour of rain the entire time :/ But I did get the ride Giant Dipper though! Not as bad as I was expecting, certainly find its lift hill quite unique to listen to...kind of like how SOB was but not as painful to the ears, lol. Anyway, for those who probably never heard of this park, its a seaside park with only a classic woodie and several flat rides and its not far from SeaWorld. Had the weather been nicer I would have stuck around longer honestly. IMG_5536 by ki_faerie_wench, on Flickr

  38. I have not ridden any other wing coasters, but Zach told me that it was much better than Wild Eagle, which he has ridden. And yes, this ride will kick your butt if you mess with it

  39. Great review...even though I have yet to ride this, obviously...just a question, and I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering this- have you ever been on Wild Eagle @ Dollywood, X-Flight @ SFGam, or (unlikely) one of the foreign B&M Wing Coasters for comparison purposes? Also- a B&M that is actually FORCEFUL for the first time in a long time? Wow...makes me kind of hope whatever new ride KI is getting, if it is a B&M, is also forceful...(imagines a B&M Giga that is somewhat similar to Intimidator 305 in layout, and has good forces besides just airtime but of course it also has
