  1. This is what I’ve also been wondering. I’ve looked but I’ve founded no previous mentioned of SVP of operations @ CedarFair so I’m assuming it’s a new role. I’m assuming the regional VP role still exists (Which was filled by Bob white for the parks KI, KD & CP) but I guess it’s also possible that role has been phased out and replaced with this new posistion?
  2. The main reason places like Kroger don't take Apple Pay is because they rely on tracking their customers purchases so they can offer them targeted promotions. Kings Island doesn't rely on that. I think going cashless probably won't be a big deal so long they clearly mention that at the entrance of the park.
  3. Yes, they’re operating the property. It won’t generate as much income as if they owned it but they’ll still probably make a decent amount of money considering they haven’t had to put any money into the project.
  4. Yeah I’d be really upset if Viper gets removed. It’s a bucket list coaster for me.
  5. "We are eliminating 15 underperforming rides this year, reducing maintenance costs, and freeing up significant capex resources." Which rides do you think will go? Will Cedar Fair also remove a large number of rides this year. https://www.fool.com/earnings/call-transcripts/2020/10/28/six-flags-entertainment-corp-six-q3-2020-earnings/
  6. Looks like a good event, I really enjoy the food festivals so I hope we get to see this trend continue.
  7. My fondest memory on Vortex was the first time I rode it. Vortex was the first ride that I rode with an inversion which is why that first ride was so special to me.
  8. While another flat in coney mall would be nice I really think Rivertown or Oktoberfest could use a new flat more.
  9. Personally I don't see that happening. Naming a new coaster after an old, demolished coaster may cause confusion among guest. Also renaming a new coaster Vortex would also make it harder to market the new ride.
  10. Agreed, the last thing Kings Island needs is to have 1 less high thrill flat ride. Every major amusement park needs a Drop Tower.
  11. Wow that is really great quality, especially considering most of the SoB povs suck, Thanks for sharing!
  12. I’d like the park to improve on the high thrill flat ride lineup, definitely the biggest hole imo. I’d also like to see the park add more foliage around the park. Action Zone and the area by blacklot just aren’t pleasant areas to be around due to the lack of foliage imo.
  13. The problem is when you have so many people in the park it becomes harder to stay socially distance. If everyone wore their mask then Id agree with you more but from my personal experience at the park there is still a sizable group of people who don't wear their mask or don't wear it properly. If you just watch this video you can see how crowded its gotten at Cedar Point,
  14. I think at this point both Kings Island & Cedar Point should probably limit their capacity even more. Considering how bad the midwest is getting hit right now it seems a little irresponsible to be letting such large crowds in. The measures they have in place are good however they don't seem as effective when you have so many people inside the park.
  15. I don’t want to get into the politics of it but reopening to soon has caused more economic damage then if we had just waited the extra 2 weeks or so in the initial lockdown. People come first, the economy comes 2nd. The government has the resources to support people who lose their job due to a lockdown.
