    Hot Island Rhythms Preview!

    Wow. Someone who likes KB. Sorry, just not my favorite person and has quite a bad rep with many people I know...and he's no Bill. Anyway, I am very happy that they will finally have multiple shows throughout the park again. I saw Hot Island Rhythms yesterday. It's better than nothing (and no it's not awful), but still not the best show they've had. Maybe I'm a little biased, but I've seen what the dept used to be like approx 10 years ago. Definitely looking forward to the ice skating though.

    Shows

    I miss Summer Showcase. I did a few of those. Ushers trying to be funny/entertaining is a scary concept, but we had a good time!

    New owner making changes at Kings Island

    So if the Back Porch Stage is out and the Parade is out these are some possible choices, Roving Band Street Show Train show I personally hope the last one is right! They could also double-up the shows. They could have a show at Bandstand during the day and Karaoke at night...like in the past. Any ideas on what Paramount Theater will be called? I would assume the name will be changing. Back to American Heritage, maybe?!

    Shows

    I'm so glad someone remembers the last of the "good ole days". I worked at Repeat The Beat my first year in Entertainment. All of the shows in the park were great that year...and sadly things have gone down more and more every year. It was nice having day shows and night shows. I remember filling International Showplace on a daily basis, back then. I'm hoping the changes for '07 bring it back to those days... Awesome, do you have any pics of that show or video/audio? Although I was not part of the cast or crew of house of groove, it was one of my favorites. Looking for stuff from that show. I know Jen was the Stage manager, and I knew most of the cast. But I dont have any pics or anything... I was still in Merch during "Groove". I used to have a cassette with a live recording of "Retro". I wasn't in the show either (Usher). I'm sure it's long gone though. We must've crossed paths somewhere along the way.

    Kings Island Lays Off 15...Restructures

    Bill being gone is huge loss (in my opinion). I worked with him for quite a few years (see my Sig). The entertainment dept has slowly gone downhill over the years and Bill being gone doesn't help my opinion of the situation.

    Timberwolf

    Just a couple comments. I thought the capacity for T-Wolf was 10,000. I could be wrong, but that's what I remember hearing when I worked there. I worked quite a few T-Wolf shows over the years. Also, and this is just a side note, I worked that Britney Spears concert. That was a memorable night. Sold out. People standing on benches. People yelling at us because people were standing benches. Getting threatened a couple times. Awful crowd. Completely lip-synched show. Yea, even the spoken stuff between songs. But that night at midnight I turned 21, so that definitely made up for it. Over the past few years they've had some decent acts. Last year I loved "working" the Simple Plan concert. However, my favorite would have to be Third Eye Blind a few years ago.

    Craig Ross

    Interesting news... I always liked Tim, so that wouldn't be a horrible thing for me...

    Sweet drinking cups

    Yeah, but McDonalds don't put Montgomery Inn sauce on it. On top of that, the Rib Pit sandwiches were a higher quality of meat than McDonalds uses. I said closest...

    Stratosphere La$ Vega$

    Wow...I'm shocked. Guess I had good timing though. Was in Vegas the weekend of 12/17. I finally rode High Roller - a decent ride - nothing 'spectacular' but fun at night. Now, on the opposite end of the spectrum, I rode Insanity also! OMG! The only time I've truly been nervous to ride something...I was shaking afterwards, of course it could be because it was only 30 degrees outside before the spinning at that height!

    Winterfest ... sinking faster than the Titanic

    I think every department has it's sucky parts, let's not turn this into another battle of who's right/wrong... Long story short though, I think WinterFest could use some tweaking - which I completely expected. "Rome wasn't built in a day", right? I also think that it depends on the person/family's attitude when they go in...if you go in expecting the most magnificent thing ever you'll be disappointed...but if you go in expecting to enjoy some time with friends/family then you might just find yourself having a good time! Also, keep in mind, for those that went to the original (I was there too!) that our own personalities and likes/dislikes can change drastically over a 13 year period...things seemed bigger, more colorful, etc. **Stepping down** Side Note: WooHoo! 300th Post!

    Jeff Siebert Resigns from PKI

    I'm guessing people within the offices knew this was coming...partially because I can't see him just springing this on them out of the blue. How long they've known is a different story.
