  1. I love the way news articles were written back in the day like that article. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Not directly related to the incident at hand, but Kings Island, Cedar Point, Coney Island and even Disney use the Ellis and Associates. You can see the companies that use them on their website here: https://jellis.com/about-us/our-clients I know from my experience at Coney that the lifeguards go through some pretty rigorous training. And the training is on going through out the course of the year with inservices, and trainings using a doll/dummy for life rescue trainings. Not sure what Land of Illusion used, but that Aqua Adventure park has only been open for a couple of years.
  3. I get that. A little surprised to hear that a ride that opened in 1999 was still using that process of being painted in the field.
  4. I didn`t know that B&M coasters weren`t painted in the factory, especially as late as 1999 when that ride was built. Painting in the factory allows for a better quality, as you can better control the environment.
  5. Yep. There are lots of pump stations and "force mains" to get sewage to the treatment plant. But generally waste lines are not under pressure such as water lines, so they are not as prone to breaking like water lines. Not to say that they don`t break and cause sink holes, etc. Its just not as likely.
  6. Camp Cedar now open: https://www.wcpo.com/news/local-news/after-delays-kings-islands-camp-cedar-luxury-campground-finally-opens
  7. What became of the site of where the Cedars Dorms were once located? Seems like that area could be ripe for some kind of new development.
  8. Maybe as others have stated in this thread they are temporarily converting it to a Grand Carnivale shop. That will allow them some time to get more Squashmellows in stock, and they can convert it back to that after Grand Carnivale when they hopefully have more inventory.
  9. Which makes sense why I saw lights on the floats.
  10. The placement would be curious if they are needed soil core sample locations. Orion’s maintenance track, station, and queue are all in the way. Unless they are testing to determine the soil bearing pressure to relocate one or some of the maintenance buildings located at the Front of Area 72 to free up room there for a new flat ride.
  11. Looks like a really great parade! Was the park operating when the parade was happening? I didn`t see a single ride running from Valravn, to Power Tower, to Top Thrill or even Corkscrew the entire length of the parade.
  12. I wonder what kind of construction delays they are facing. Especially since this is the second time they have had to push the opening. And to not list a new opening date. I wonder what kind of management agreement they have with KI to operate the property. Ie, are they paying KI a flat fee, or is KI getting a flat fee plus a percentage of the sales.
  13. News article here: https://www.wcpo.com/money/consumer/dont-waste-your-money/kings-islands-camp-cedar-delayed-again No new opening date has been announced yet.
  14. I believe that Planning and Design is now based out of Charlotte, NC, not far from Carowinds. They used to be based out of Cedar Point.
  15. Speaking of Canada`s Wonderland, they just announced they are being given permission to open. July 5th for pass holders and July 7th to the general public. https://www.canadaswonderland.com/
