  1. Seems pretty stagnant performance with only 1 million dollars in increased revenue. Attendance was up by a decent margin though. https://investors.sixflags.com/news-and-events/press-releases/2019/10-22-2019-210441595
  2. So bizarre to have adult/teen water slides themed to Elmo. I’m curious if they see a decline in those markets, I just have a hard time seeing teenagers say “let’s go to Sesame Place and ride the Cookie Monster!”. Maybe I’m over estimating how much of a market share that group of people currently represent.
  3. Can’t believe in one week Vortex will be closed for ever.
  4. Still feels unreal that I only have one more day to ride Vortex.
  5. It definitely has a large value to the park as it’s arguably the most intimidating rollercoaster there. It’s a huge statement to have a 420 ft tall coaster at your park. I wonder though that if that’ll remain true in 10 or 20 years to justify its maintenance cost.
  6. Crazy how much downtime the ride has, I don’t even want to imagine how much they’ve spent on supporting the ride.
  7. Kings Island vs Cedar Point has nothing to do with Orion’s Construction. This thread keeps getting so off topic.
  8. I believe they’re 12 or 13 dollars. If you don’t buy them don’t be that concerned about being scared in the scare zones. For the most part you can see the scare actors coming and since there’s so many people walking through the paths you aren’t that likely to be targeted by them a lot.
  9. Yep it has been installed https://www.wcpo.com/money/consumer/dont-waste-your-money/kings-island-gives-sneak-peek-of-orion-construction
  10. Only excuse I heard was that management wanted it that way.
  11. Why is half the parking lot closed.... this is ridiculous
  12. A lot of people end up coming later in the evening during Haunt.
  13. The tracer lights are fairly dated (and not in the best looking condition) yeah they could put in on another ride but at this point it’d probably be easier to just order new ones.
  14. That’s kind of pointless In my honest opinion. they could easily just hire a firm and produce a better produce.
  15. I’m sure they hired an outside firm to produce the commercials. I wouldn’t hold my breath though, Yukon Striker & Copperhead haven’t received these animated commercials sadly. I personally love them. edit - Found them - https://carbonvfx.com/ 2nd edit - They wrote an article about Mystic Timbers editing process - https://carbonvfx.com/work/vfx/cedar-fair-mystic-timbers/
