  1. Sorry, yes cat. Didn’t see this as something they would do annually (remove and replace two fountain pedestals) I think when those two were removed that should’ve been a hint. I think the time needed to remove them all plus the “shock” may have been why they only took out what they needed for winterfest this time around. Duhgfybcryjknkkfcffcbuyvfvb don’t you think?
  2. You can see from the pic of the removed pedestals the wiring was cut as was the plumbing. Unless they were planning on adding some type of attachment couplers after the fact, the way they were removed indicates they weren’t coming back. When two were “temporarily removed” for winterfest i sort of thought this might be happening as I didn’t see this really being sinettingbtheyveiuldceantbti do annually with these at least the way they were originally constructed. While I liked the idea of them, I felt the blue and white color execution made them feel a bit dated. If they just were white or looked like stone that would’ve been better. We’ll see in a few weeks, but I don’t expect to see them back.
  3. Lord almighty, get over it. I think he was saying it should be called the show fountain because of its new capabilities, not “I have it from the park directly it will now be called the royal show fountain” it’s semantics and maybe bad wording, but is it really worth trying to prove how “right” you are?
  4. Bingo. Big building, no thought. Former Kings Island at its best!
  5. I think this is s much better use of this space. The reds thing had no relation thematically to the area at all. Now I think the reds idea could definitely live over to coney. Maybe retheme the leftover happy days jukebox diner or even new build someplace over there. Baseball and burgers make more sense on the midway. No if they could just get LaRosas out of river town (maybe fried chicken? -even chick fil a) we’d be getting g a better food-theme fit.
  6. I’m loving the nostalgia that is pushing a lot of their decision making these days. It’s slmist like there’s a slow return to some “glory days” ahead of us for a 50th celebration.
  7. I hate them. Operationally, aesthetically and taste wise.
  8. Wish CFA would move to LaRosas in rivertown with a refreshed look. Fried chicken would fit Rivertown better than pizza theme-wise. Also wish they would move to all franchise food locations being named something else “presented by...” like “Front Porch Chicken-presented by ChickFil A” and don’t recreate the look of a chick fil a, larosas, skyline whatever. Serve the food in a unique looking location that ties into the park. All in all wish they thought more about using the type of food served to strengthen the “theme” of the area.
  9. Which is Cedar Points entrance- not KI. Why wouldn’t you want both Ohio parks to feel unique and different?
  10. I agree as to it’s ability to make money anyplace. It just seems like making “Action Zone” more about extreme experiences would make sense and it could live there, or as others have stated, Xbase and flesh that area out more as a mini land with space and flight themed rides.
  11. Because it makes no sense where it is.
  12. I felt like it was a missed opportunity years ago to remove Sling Shot and make the entrance to Banshee there ( even it there were two entrances - one from Oktoberfest and one from AZ that “merged” into a relocate queue.) then retheme Adventure Express to relate to Banshee. Like a ride through the crypts (bad memories) and catacombs of a European cemetery while the spirit (Banshee) soars overhead. They could have shared theming elements. Then that would give a major focal to Oktoberfest. Would also maybe give the ghosts from Christmas Carol a place to hang during winterfest instead of roaming randomly with no explanation. My 4 year old was very concerned this year that the “bad man is creeping on the princess”!
  13. All Upligting in the park has switched over to “disco” mode. They went all out on the NYE party vibe. I loved watching all the characters dancing and interacting with the crowd at the bandstand countdown. Definitely a fun night. Hope the low numbers don’t make them question doing NYE next year.
