  1. If it is reliable, I see no reason for them to close it down. This is a recent trend that I hope stops. IMHO, the front seat of The Bat is one of the most under-rated rides in the park. The different between front seat and any other on this ride is huge.
  2. https://www.cincydirect.com/Index.aspx/Larosas-Pizzeria-Store/ A little pricey but you get 12 cans...you may find them cheaper online somewhere else
  3. A lot of their unique taste is in the sauce, which you can buy online. It is a sweeter tomato paste than most pizza places. Try that on a homemade traditional crust and you'll have a decent Larosa's replica.
  4. I love this ride, my #3 coaster in the park. I don't find it rough at all. And for those of you youngins, trust me, the lap bar is waaaay better than its original restraints. The only critique if you can call it that is that you really have to plan your FOF ride if it's a busy day. Ride it early to avoid the lines. The theming is fantastic, the cheesy video they play with the vintage "b-grade 90's X-Files" vibe, the launch is great...I absolutely love this ride and find it odd that it's considered a 2nd tier coaster within the park.
  5. Agreed. I do do Haunt...too crowded and just not into it. But would have made another trip prior had I know it was leaving. There is absolutely no good reason to not announce that sooner...really screwed up here IMHO.
  6. I for one can't stand Cotton Eye Joe. It's tired, and been played on the train for ages.
  7. It's a shame they waited until late Thursday night in late September to announce this. It's a strict business decision. They should have told people sooner. Vortex deserved better.
  8. Keanu Reeves. I'd like Keanu Reeves to own KI. Yeah.
  9. Yesterday Marty.... Today Vortex.... My childhood took a hell of a hit this week...
  10. I wish they would have announced this sooner! The best way I describe The Vortex is this...it is like being married to an attractive yet abusive spouse. Looks amazing, but she beats the crap out of you. But you still love her and keep coming back. Vortex? Looks AMAZING...but every time I ride it I get beat up so bad. But she's great... I forgive her.
  11. You can't kick parents out for this, but I watched a large group of parents up and leave IS Skyline yesterday, leaving the tables an absolute wreck. Garbage, cheese, crackers, etc all over the table. You are, quite literally, setting an example to your children that you are a pig. Show some respect for your fellow human beings and spend 30 seconds cleaning up after your children! The poor kids working there deserve some respect. As a father of 6 this angers me big time. This type of mentality is one of the reasons our culture is in the shape it's in. And don't get me started on the trashy people the leave the McDonalds bags in the parking lot. As if there's not 1000 trash cans all over.
  12. A classic diesel 48' x 102 flatbed, straps and no tarps. That would be a fun load to haul!
  13. I absolutely loved this station as a kid. It's one of my earliest memories of KI.
  14. Not a revelation to anyone, but the carnival games seem absolutely dead this year. I feel bad for the poor kids manning 2-3 games and begging people to play. I'd expect to see less of those in coming years. Maybe a tattoo shop in place of one. It seemed like everyone over 14 had multiple tats when we went on Sunday. Not exactly judging...just a mildly sarcastic observation:)
  15. Very good points, thanks everyone for sharing. My issue is not that people are afraid of them (for a variety of reasons, most I disagree with but respect). It's when people refuse to see obvious facts about just how safe and, as @lifetimecoaster mentioned, controlled. There is little"controlled" about, say, a morning commute on 75 for example. If it were some cheap carnival somewhere, sure, I get it. But this is a billion dollar corporation...even the slightest rumor of danger (Son of Beast) could compromise the ride or the entire park financially. The logic is so very ignorant. Excellent point! Great example. I was almost clipped by an a-hole this past Sunday who sped past everyone and cut into a long line of people turning left into the park from the northern entrance. I wanted to cuss him out but couldn't with all my kids in the car. That was far closer than anything inside the park. Great way to break it down as well, thanks.
  16. Thanks, I've said similar things, like riding SOB front row over and over back in the day, etc, and never got hurt. There is literally more accidents, per person, in a weekend on the roads than there is all year worldwide on coasters. They are extremely safe. Some men you just can't reach, lol.
  17. The won't ride it either way, lol. I just want to prove I'm right!
  18. Does anyone have any good articles or data they can share on just how safe new roller coasters are? The reason I ask is, I know they are extremely safe, and good parks like KI go to extreme lengths to make sure all coasters are safe and enjoyable. It is considerably more dangerous to ride in a car, for example. After watching Orion and showing it to family, friends and co-workers, the most common response is "NO WAY" or "THAT'S TOO DANGEROUS" which we know is factually incorrect. I'd like to enlighten my friends and family Thanks in advance!
  19. IMHO, I love the ride even though it is no Phantom Theater. And sometimes the guns work well, sometimes they don't. Bummer, but life is too short to worry about guns working on a silly little dark ride. Just enjoy the ride It seems to still draw a ton of riders, so I doubt the park will change it any time soon.
  20. Daily tickets. Sadly we could not get passes this year as we can't make a lot of trips. Thanks, I guess that would solve it.
  21. Seems simple enough, but does anyone know if there is a trick to this? I add the order ID, then my email. However, it just goes back to the "edit account" page and does not show my tickets? Tried this several times with no luck. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  22. Wow, I feel bad for anyone who went out there but understand the parks decision.
