  1. Is Six Flags loading every row on trains at their parks that are open?
  2. Now had they themed a whole area of the park to dinosaurs with eateries, rides and such, then it could have been viable. But without the major IP that Universal has, I am not sure that it would have been a viable move. Keep in mind that I believe Cedar Fair partnered with an outside company for the dinosaurs. I believe that Cedar Fair provided the staffing, walkways, and electrical hookups, while the outside company provided the dinosaurs and the maintenance of them.
  3. And there was not a lot of repeatability with DA. Yeah, they added a new dinosaur in, but there just wasn`t a lot to keep people coming back. Now, my son loves dinosaurs, and would have loved to experience DA.
  4. Might have to make it out to the Columbus Zoo this year. Still have not been on the Sea Dragon.
  5. I think a merger like that would be complicated because of the foreign currency. A Herschend takeover/merger with SEAS would be interesting. I have often thought that some of the Sea World parks, particularly the two in Florida, and even the one in Texas could be a good fit for Cedar Fair. Heck, even BGW would be a good fit, although it is close to KD.

  7. Was there anyone previously in this role? Or are they both new roles? I know that Tim Fisher is COO of Cedar Fair.
  8. Mine is now slated to arrive today by 2:30pm! So excited!
  9. That is when mine is expected to arrive as well. Found it odd that it shipped from PA and was at a USPS distribution center in NJ, only to come back to Ohio!
  10. Still waiting on mine to arrive. Excited for it to arrive and start reading it!
  11. https://kicentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Episode-14-A-Ride-Through-Time.mp3 Join Robbie (Coastersrz) and Brad Perdue (Indyguy4KI) as they interview Evan Ponstingle, author of the new history book about Kings Island, "Kings Island: A Ride Through Time". Be sure to also check out Episode 8, where we previously interviewed Evan. To preorder this book, which is slated to be released on April 15th, and learn more about this book, please visit his publisher`s website River Shore Creative here.
  12. Hopefully he has the funds/investors to make this a successful long term venture. Could this be the start of a new company that focuses in smaller regional parks? Very interesting development.
  13. I certainly hope not. That would not go over well at KI (and likely will not at CP for that matter). I get the need to control labor costs, but this just seems like a short sighted move. Lets go to the park, but we have to get there two hours before they close to get in line for any big attraction before they cut the line off 90 minutes before park close.
  14. Awesome to see that there is early ride time for the Great Pumpkin Coaster. My son will love that!
  15. I just received the first dose of my vaccine. Second one is scheduled for April 14th.
