  1. Found this on a reddit thread. Credit to u/a_better_reddit_name
  2. I miss the webcams because it let me see if it was raining at the park. I don't like the thought of diving 35 minutes to find out if it's raining.
  3. Not trying to be contrarian, but I wasn't dealing with MB or anyone from F&B I was dealing with the head of Guess Services (or whatever they call it). SHE is the one who called Sandusky and had the IT folks investigate.
  4. They told me that the option to have a paper and a souvenir cup on a single pass is "intended". In fact, that was one of the "concessions" they offered to try to fix the problem because they said the cup is not actually tied to the pass, it's tied to the barcode on the cup itself. Having 2 paper cup plans on a single pass is not "supposed to be able to happen." At least according to the gold tag who is manager of the entire department. (Not wanting to name names).
  5. Well mine wasn't for "no reason". I PAID for two drink plans on my pass for a reason. It worked the entire season until they pushed out the upgrade for 2020 gold passes. Although the park claimed that the second drink plan was never used and then blamed it on the hourly employees for screwing something up. They couldn't even figure out how to change the interlock (for lack of a better term I mean the length of time between drinks which is currently set at 15 minutes). So I'll say it again. Reeks of incompetence.
  6. I ran into an issue last time they "upgraded their system" which was around the time the 2020 Gold Passes went on sale. I'd had 2 paper cup drink plans on my pass the entire season. When they did the upgrade they "turned off" my second drink plan. It was laughable. No one knew what was going on. They made claims that I never should have been able to have two drink plans on my pass. The gold tag had to call and it took their IT team in Sandusky the better part of 3 full days to figure out what they broke. Then they said it was "working as intended". Based on my experiences I'd argue it IS incompetence.
  7. Is it just me or does it look like they already drained the fountain?
  8. The crane hasn’t been assembled yet. Separate truckloads will deliver the lattice structure, boom, winches, and counterweights. That unit in the lot is basically the equivalent of the turntable and crawler tracks of a tracked unit only on a wheeled chassis.
  9. I think you underestimate the cost of some of those big boy cranes. In my previous job I had to rent cranes on the regular to load and unload heavy items. The biggest I rented were 80 ton RTC'S and they ran over $3k for a 4 hour rental period. I once rented a 30 ton out in Norcal and it ran over $4k for 4 hours. It was crazy. Even if I only needed it for 2 hours it was still a "4 hour minimum". IIRC most of the ones I rented had a max boom height of around 120'-130'. So they can't go anywhere near the heights needed here. I did arrange transport for some of the bigger Manitowoc lattice crawlers and it took 30-40 FTL's to deliver all the components to erect the crane on-site.
  10. Why am I thinking it's @DonHelbig keeping that coaster count up?
  11. Same here. First ever and this is the one I got. Wife got the $9.99 retro t-shirt too.
  12. Sure is. Right outside the stairwell to get to the upstairs restaurant / conference rooms.
