    Oktoberfest Discussion

    I don`t know who designed the Octoberfest buildings. I know Anthony Daniels (a UC grad), designed many of the original buildings at Kings Island (as well as many of the buildings at Coney in the 60s, with the current games building being one of his projects). More recently, the buildings have been designed by two Cincinnati architecture firms, RSL Commercial Architecture (http://www.rslarch.com/) and TRA Design (http://tra-design.net/portfolio-type/entertainment/).

    Kings Island Nominated for Favorite Holiday Park

    And it looks like they have an ice skating Snoopy show. I think that would do a lot better in the Kings Island Theater than the current production that is in there.

    Kings Island Nominated for Favorite Holiday Park

    I am curious, what kind of live entertainment offerings does Knott`s have for their Knott`s Merry Christmas event? Do they have this show, or do they utilize a different Peanuts themed show?

    Winterfest 2018 Discussion Thread

    I agree. I still love the way they put the lights on the buildings at Dollywood. The attention to detail and the different color lights that they use is simply amazing.

    I believe that Mystic Timbers has a minimum start up temperature. It was 33 when I got to the park last night at 4:45. Mystic Timbers never opened last night as the temperature only dropped. There were still people pouring in when I left around 7:30.

    I really hope I can make it down to Carowinds at some point in 2019. This ride looks amazing! I also still need to ride Fury 325!

    The Amusement Park Railroad Thread

    Yes, that is correct. Worlds of Fun has one Crown built engine. A lot of the track is visible from inside the park. That park has kind of a weird layout. It is cool all the views you get of the train.

    My only complaint with the video is that the ground is the same color as the sky (blue). Would have been nice to have some distinction between the two.

    International Street Discussion

    Well, part of the reason for the removal of the curbs, is trip hazards. The amount of people that walk on the pathways likely led to trips and first aid runs. Not to mention the accessibility issues with people in wheel chairs. And in its current set up, it gets more of the pedestrian traffic closer to the shops where they can see the items that are for sale, which likely leads to a higher traffic through the stores and increased merchandise sales.

    What's up with Kings Dominion?

    Part of the weird layout is because their back of house buildings are more into the "park" territory. As an example, their International Street doesn`t have an entrance off of it in the middle on each side like KI`s. Also the water park kind of is odd as it is right by Candy Apple Grove and straddles both sides of Racer 75 (the former Rebel Yell).

    I was there around the same time on Sunday night and they had the Cinnamon Pull Apart bread. Almost got some, but my in laws got a funnel cake which we shared.

    Cedar Point running out of room.

    Except what would that gain them? Its not like it sits on a large plot of land. I think the more logical place for expansion would be on the marina side, by where Wildcat and the dorms currently are (for now anyway). It is worth noting that they continue to purchase more land on the main land and not on the peninsula. They haven`t revealed what they intend to use that additional land for.
  14. Nice article, Ronny! It would be nice to see what future expansion they have planned for that property. I always have liked how the original grew organically. The Eastgate location is nice, but there is just something about it that doesn`t seem as authentic as the one in Fairfield. Maybe its the fact that it went into an existing location, and they built it all at once, whereas the original in Fairfield grew organically and was added onto piecemeal.

    The Amusement Park Railroad Thread

    And, as you can see in the above picture, the train has been lifted up on jacks. The trains are fired by liquid propane, which is denser than air. Because of that, having a traditional maintenance pit could be lethal for those working on the trains. So instead, they will jack the train up off its wheels to do the necessary maintenance.
