  1. I once rode that ride nine times in a two hour span back in 2000, when they had ERT for pass holders from 8-10pm one day in late July. My thighs had bruises from the sides of the lapbars. The first drop was incredible. The loop was also very smooth. That first helix though... Ouch!
  2. Castles and Coasters in Phoenix seems to do fine, and it isn`t enclosed. I visited in the spring of 2016. Nothing spectacular, and the place was pretty busy. But it was an overcast day in late April. Not the middle of July when the temperatures would have been much more unbearable. I agree thought that the markets you mentioned would likely be successful if one were built.
  3. Remember, there used to be Krazy City at Tri-County Mall. It opened in December of 2007, and was closed by December of 2009. It featured electric go-karts, an arcade, mini bowling, mini golf, a couple small flat rides including a Wisdom Tornado ride, a Moser Spring Tower among a few others. I agree that indoor FECs (Family Entertainment Centers) can be fun. In the Cincinnati market, there is Scene 75 in Milford. They also have locations in Dayton and Columbus (and have begun adding the SBF spinning coasters to some of their locations (not the Cincinnati location yet). I agree that
  4. I went, along with my boss, Tony Ravagnani. Our entire office went. Both Tom Poff and Jim Messner from SHP and Dan Peak from Clark Reder were also there. It was hard to hear the audio on Fountain Square. Still cool to see a project that you worked on featured on a big screen tv like that.
  5. One of the downsides to the parks limiting their hours of operation is that people have less time to enjoy the attractions given the crowd size and the reduced capacity on the attractions. If the park had stayed open until 10pm on Saturday, people would have had two additional hours to enjoy the park. Even with the crowd levels, that would have allowed most guests the chance to ride another ride or two.

Hear from the firms that helped create the station for Orion.
  7. And don`t forget that you can also catch him on the KIC Podcast, Episodes 6 and 7, 2019 Year in Review (Parts 1 and 2).
  8. Thanks for sharing that Ty! It is truly a unique item. I also appreciate the commentary that you added.
  9. Interesting that in park spending on food, beverage and merchandise spending was up 18%. I am sure others will agree, that we will be glad when this thing is over. And their numbers can begin to return to more normal levels. Impressive that they did have 1.3 million guests in the 3rd quarter.
  10. It still makes me sad to see all the ride pads sitting empty. Python apparently was going to be at the Kentucky State Fair this year, if they had been allowed to have rides there.
  11. That would not be a bad spot for that kind of ride either.
  12. I seem to also recall the actors being tethered to a wall so that they could not get close to the vehicles to be injured by them. Similar to how the characters on parade floats at Disney World are tethered to the float.
  13. Why not utilize the space behind the International Show Place and behind the Eiffel Tower for a wild mouse? That area of land has been vacant for years (they once set up a temporary Haunt in a tent in that location) after the old Salt Water Circus building was torn down. Diamondback`s transfer track and turn into the station sit on part of that land, but there still might be room to fit a wild mouse in there.
