  1. They have sold off too much of the surrounding land that could’ve been developed for a resort. The park is now surrounded by the city. It’s landlocked except for the terrain areas of the valley.
  2. it looks absolutely dreadful. That was a full forest of trees and they removed all of them. The location behind fast food restaurants is equally as awful. Why not just park in the Walmart parking lot? This cannot be advertised as a luxury resort when it is nothing but a glorified parking lot.
  3. Kings Island is a superior overall park. It was designed to be a theme park, with themed sections. And a logical, easy to travel layout. The entrances of the 3 Taft-built parks are the most spectacular entrances of any theme parks worldwide, including Disney. IMO King's Island has a better coaster collection if you want to re-ride because so many coasters at CP were built to be extreme. I am located in between the 2 and almost always chose KI to attend because of its superior atmosphere. CP does have the lake going for it, but sooooo much of the park is generic and just pavem
  4. The company runs out of cash in six months. And they don’t have much income in cash in the meantime. There’s not going to be a lot of major ride investments for several years probably
  5. That’s my favorite time of year to go to the park. Even if most of the rides are closed it’s just amazing being there at night with all of the lighting. based on the video that I have seen of what Carowinds is doing this year, it’s best that they just didn’t have Winterfest at all instead of something like that. Lots of tacky decorations and very few lights.
  6. It could be possible that these aren’t money makers as much to drive season pass sales At these parks that were not opened at all. KI and CP were open enough to satisfy season pass holders. If an event is just bringing the same passholders back it may not be profitable. But I do wish Kings Island would have done something because it’s my favorite time of year there
  7. Kings Dominion just announced their Taste of the Season today, Nov 10. It’s running the month of December and appears it will be a smaller event than Carowinds based on the mentioned rides. Both kings dominion and Carowinds are under state capacity limitations. Kings Island has a higher allowed capacity so it’s surprising they did not do something
  8. Did they remove the awful dip in the helix? That dip is the perfect example of how amateur Arrow’s track work can be.
  9. This is an interesting fact. Out of the 16 mine trains built by arrow since 1966, all are still operating except Dexter Frebish Electric Roller Ride/Excalibur at Astroworld. And that coaster was removed to be replaced by an SLC, not because of ride age or mechanical issues. AE appears that it will have a VERY long life if the park chooses.
  10. It would be a crying shame if Xcalibur/Imperator gets removed. It is one of the only models in the world. It's such a spectacular ride.
  11. I would take this at KI over nothing. https://www.carowinds.com/play/events/taste-of-the-season
  12. The park probably spent $0 on anything gory or death-related this year, since this is a fall festival event. For the ride graveyard, they probably just used what they had since any money spent was spent on more friendly decorations this year.
  13. They have already started a spooky them in that section with (especially) Banshee and The Bat. I would make sense that would be the retheme. Most of all, that area needs less concrete and more shade.
  14. Thanks for posting this in such close up detail, by each section.
