  1. It's a little deceiving, since the drone footage is from leaf-off conditions. Looks like the majority of clearing took place on the south portions of the lot and the wooded area towards the back was partially kept. The growth on the south site was probably all noxius, honeysuckle, cedars and briars (similar to any highway right of way).
  2. Wiping down surfaces, etc, is now just a "show" based on what and how we know the corona virus transmits.
  3. Nothing can be gleaned from the survey markings as to what is being designed. It could be anything from new drainage to the aforementioned access road, it could even be an effort to set out a new boundary division to split the land out that contains the parking lots....who knows....
  4. The lathes with the pink flagging and paint on the pavement are survey control markers (traverse points, or turning points) to run control to, or occupy with GPS equipment to get an accurate location. In grass, they would be iron pins if somewhat permanent for a long-term use. If short-term, big carpenter nails. In the pavement they use what are called PK Nails or survey spikes (magnetic so they can be recovered if covered in grime or tar) The white paint marks potential excavation to marked by OUPS (utility one-call), or, areas that the utility markings are needed. A call into the serv
  5. The director of the CDC has said that if everyone in the U.S. wore a mask, the epidemic could be brought under control in about 4 to 6 weeks. ---In other words R naught below 1
  6. Are Orion Ride Tickets a permanent thing (e.g. tomorrow the 7th)? --- or just for the weekends/holiday
  7. Rest easy ---- the good news is that we know how to quell potential swine and avian flu virus outbreaks for some time now. Its easier to remap existing flu vaccines to the new strains than developing a new vaccine for a coronavirus. (This lede would have been buried if not for the current Pandemic)
  8. Will park capacity be updated in real-time? If lots of folks leave during the late afternoon after being there all day (e.g g thundershower clears 1/3 of the people there), I wonder if one could log on and secure a reservation for later that evening?
  9. ^ I believe it was supposed to be announced yesterday, but the Press Conference was cancelled.
  10. A new Notice was recorded on 12/18/2019, a sleuth could check out what the new names on there signify... Edit by IndyGuy4KI: Use this link. https://kicentral.com/forums/uploads/monthly_2019_12/2019-039065_pdf.ec0a4a7b0f2f25b5dab758b3759f0b78.pdf 2019-039065.pdf
  11. DB's lift sits on land at elevation of 756 (source: https://webmap.co.warren.oh.us/wcgis/auditor/) Orion's lift sits on about 746/748 (so roughly 10 feet lower --- unless they re-graded the land any)
  12. The cams are down, so they are down. Its just a coincidence that its at the same time as the lift hill erection and KI is not hiding anything. Recall they said construction was actually ahead of schedule due to the dry weather, so when KI had the planned outage of the cams for Winterfest preparation they probably assumed the bulk of the lift hill would be being placed after Winterfest prep on ET is done and the cams are back up. So no one in their right mind would tell the contractor (any contractor) to hold off a bit on the erection a week so it can be captured on the webcams --- any ammuniti
  13. Face/Off's (Invertigo) old red and yellow colors sure attracted a LOT of Cicadas back in 2008
  14. About Elevation 766 at the Eiffel Tower and 750-ish near the new coaster drop

  16. Leonard Bernstein, Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs are all referenced in It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) https://genius.com/Rem-its-the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it-and-i-feel-fine-lyrics#note-2791162 Stipe once described a dream that he’d had about being at a party where everyone in the room is a famous person with the initials L.B. Explaining this song to Q magazine in 1992, Stipe said: “The words come from everywhere. I’m extremely aware of everything around me, whether I am in a sleeping state, awake, dream state or just in

  18. "Stipe ELE" --- Micheal Stipe?

  20. R.E.M.: The other night I dreamt of knives, Continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line Leonard Bernstein. Homer: Leonid What's-His-Name, Herman Munster, motorcade, Birthday party, Cheetos, Pogo sticks and lemonade, Symbiotic stupid jerks, That's right, Flanders, I am talkin' about you!
  21. the Drawings were submitted for review and approval for building permit and electrical permit (and code compliance) only. On the development side of things, (minor) changes can and do happen after plan review and permit issuance, as long as they do not violate the Code or any Conditions of the granted permit or zoning approval. That being said, I do not think the City of Mason has jurisdiction over the ride and/or vertical construction -- that may rest solely with the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
  22. I think the sequence # is referring to the order of the ride opening. That being said, then Vortex poster might be corrected from VI to IV since that would be an honest mistake I - TBD II - TBD III - Bayern Curve - 1973 IV - (Vortex - 1987) V - Flight of Fear -1996 VI - TBD VII - Invertego - 1999 VIII - TBD IX - Firehawk - 2007 X - TBD XI - TBD
  23. The sequence numbering will be be the order the Test was done (e.g. when the ride was installed). I would expect 2 rides installed prior to Bayran Curve to be sequence 1 and 2. ....Bethca one of those will be Zodiac
  24. Since the applied-for trademarks seem to involve spaceflight themes, maybe the teasers will be tied-into the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11? (Launch Date July 16, 1969, Moonwalk on July 21, 1969) Neil Armstrong was part of Astronaut Group 2, in project Gemini (pronounced /ˈdʒɛmɪni/, rhyming with knee ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASA_Astronaut_Group_2 (announced on September 17, 1962) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Gemini Gemini 8 (VIII) was Armstrong's 1st spaceflight and the mission conducted the first docking of two spacecraft in orbit, but suffered the fir
