  1. I am very excited for this news. I wish that this was staying all summer long. It will certainly be quite the site, and offer some really unique views. I think the admission price is also very fair.

    Whatever it is (and I do not know, I only knew something was coming), the park just posted that the announcement will be tomorrow for it!

    View from Newest Attraction Per Coney`s Facebook page this morning.
  4. New Coney Historical Pictures

    I actually just saw this video for the first time on Friday. This does have some awesome footage. You can actually see several of the buildings that are still standing at Coney to this day. Obviously, some of the rides like the log flume have been relocated to Kings Island.
  5. Eiffel light package

    They added those lights during Haunt last year.
  6. New Coney Historical Pictures

    http://coneyislandcentral.com/history/ I have received some great historical pictures from Coney in September of 1971, right before the park closed. These photos are courtesy of Paul Adams, and include many shots/angles that I have never seen before.
  7. Kings Island Media Day 2018

    Typically, media day invites are reserved for working media news organizations (newspapers, radio stations, television stations). They are meant as a way to promote the new shiny attraction. There is not always a media day event every year for parks. When there is a media day, they are by invite only.

    Yes, fortunately it happened now, before the ride mechanics had started to put all the rides back together. Back in 2011, it flooded at the end of April, and we had to cancel our ride operator trainings, and the Appalachian Festival, which is typically the first weekend the ride are open at Coney (Mother`s day weekend), due to a late spring flood.

    Yes, this flood was not as bad as 1997. The park was inundated with water though. In the last flood that hit Coney, in 2015, there was about a foot of water. This flood likely had nearly four feet of water in the rides office. I haven`t been at the park since the flood waters have receded. I do know that the clean up process is already well underway.
  10. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Supposed to get a big coaster according to whom? The Ghost Town area of Knott`s is a wonderful area. Removing that area would be an awful decision. Its amazing how little some of the smaller parks in the chain contributed to the overall attendance/EBITDA. It also means that a bad year at Cedar Point and Knott`s would hurt the company more than a bad year at Worlds of Fun and Valleyfair.
  11. SeaWorld Shakeup

    It would be interesting to see if Cedar Fair attempted to purchase some (or all) of Sea World Entertainment properties. I could see Cedar Fair being interested in Busch Gardens Tampa (Cedar Fair does not have any Florida operations and it would not contain the negative PR that is associated with the Sea World parks). Not sure CF would be interested in Busch Gardens Williamsburg, given its proximity to Kings Dominion. I don`t think Cedar Fair would purchase all of Sea World parks. But then again, many thought that Cedar Fair wouldn`t be purchasing all of Paramount Parks back when they did just that.
  12. I think the first few seasons, pass holders received about a 50% discount, but they still had to pay for it. I want to say it was like $3 per passholder or something similar.
  13. I think it could be argued that the writing was on the wall for the impending extinction (eventually) of the attraction once they opened it for free to gold and platinum pass holders.
  14. Racer runs backwards?

    And said poster is sorely missed. Great American Scream Machine, a John Allen designed wooden coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia will be running backwards this year. It features three bench PTC trains not unlike the Racer (although it only has four cars per train, while The Racer features five cars per train). Great American Scream Machine
  15. Harlem Globetrotters

    And for those of you who do not know, the Harlem Globetrotters are owned by Herschend Family Entertainment, the company that owns Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO and jointly owns Dollywood with Dolly Parton.
