  1. Lots of interaction with the park goers. I think there could be a few more of you.. Maybe some scarecrows like corn stalkers used to have I will say we hit shipwrecked at 12am and the scare actors out numbered guest... However they were just standing around talking to one another. Yes im aware BD was contracted through street drum corp. Im really close with the gentleman that ran it last year and had been with them for over 5 seasons He told me the park approached him about writing a show for KI to use a few seasons ago and he said it would be hard to do something on par with BD. Drums of the dead was written by a park performer named Josh and it is very good but its just not as energetic and lacks the raw energy. Also i noticed a lack of theamed music playing over the park p.a. and No announcements about when such and such show will be on in 15 mins. And a lack of creepy ambiance sounds
  2. At the haunt as i type this.. Scare zones are all working well, haunts are moving quickly but groups in black out and chaos were too large for the fright actors to keep up. Rivwr town reaping was espically good.. Drums of the dead is litwrally the dollar store version of Blood Drums really REALLY sad.. about losing BD. Haunted Homecoming was better than expected but not nearly as good as hot blooded and a far cry from dead awakening (suggest edit on name)..
  3. I dont relate them to s.o.b. returning. Bur something cryptic tying all thrm together.. S.o.b., a.e., M.T., F.o.f.
  4. Its the weird almost biohazard / radiation symbol right? It is on some theming inside f.o.f. as well as The Beast and Mystic Timbers
  5. Im old but not so old i forgot what Ive done. It wasnt the timberwolf walk way.. The raised concrete walls from the "canal" were incorporated into the deco. ... I read the definitive ki haunt post.. There were several errors and omissions not enough to engage in arguing over if i find photos ill post them
  6. Im not a fan of the paper cups i tried them and ended up switching back to the bottle
  7. I find that very odd indeed. Ki may be the proving grounds
  8. Drums of the dead = KI no longer wants tonpay SDC to use the Blood Drums brand
  9. Sadly i think you are right. I will always hold my season pass but this may be our last year for the haunt
  10. 1. Phantom theater 2. FearFest (it was actually scary)
  11. Im a little skeptical for Drums of the Dead... Looks like they are trying to rip off blood drums and use basically the same consept with out paying SDC to license BD.
  12. Does anyone here remember when they used the drained Congo falls for the scarecrow theamed haunted attraction Corn Stalkers? They only did it one year, I thought it was a great use of space and it kept the fog centralized. My KI group really obly go for the haunt..the lack of new haunted attractions and the installation of winterfest deco while the haunt is going on not to mention the no boo glowing things is QUICKLY killing the spooky vibe. Back when my group started going to the haunt (2001) there were tons of scare actors romers and haunted attractions through out the park... Even halloween themed prizes at most games.. And it was SCARY. There were even signs that said the park was not necessarily child friendly after 7pm. Can anyone shed some light on to why its been so watered down?
  13. Yes!! The haunt is my fave time in the park
  14. Ok how does one get that job
  15. That's a great idea... Cause I need another reason to give KI my money
  16. So weird being you see this type of ride at carnivals and fairs operating in the rain when they shut down most other carnie rides.
  17. They may be smaller in height, but with the exception of Few LARGER CAPACITY cups they have always held 32oz to my knowledge
  18. I hate what they did with srr & the scrambler from a photography standpoint LED lights dont give that warm motion blur glow that incandescent bulbs give off Photo: SRR 7- 23- 2013
  19. I also have these more modern ones '13 through '19 i dont use any of them they just stay in a cabinet... The '15 haunt cup is pretty cool tho
  20. Its 2005 not 2009 my mistake
  21. Ive forgotten about a few of those thanks for the blast from the past.. I dont keep mine much more than a year or so i do still have two fear the four tumblers as well as my paramount cup (very similar to your Firehawk cup)
  22. Really dumb question or topic but does anyone have a souvenir cup they absolutely love? I do it's one of the Paramount / Coca-Cola ones from 2009. It us shaped like a styrofoam gas station cup, but really thick sturdy plastic however it doesn't have a strap...however back then my son was small enough to cram into a stroller aka mommy and daddys mobile home base (will post pictures later) pleasetwll me im not the only one with a fave cup. ~RtR
  23. I was really excited for Choas and pumpkin eater due to them actually having back story.. we went on the 12th and almost everything fot shut down from the rain and cold. No park roamers amd choas was almost totally empty.. pumpkin eater had the potential to be awesome just needes more workers... going back the 27th... hopefully thia time we'll be able to see blood drums and the other new live show
  24. noticed the outpost #5 symbol inside of Flight of Fear today 10-21-18 on the end of a blue plastic barrel. the line was intentionally routed to the far side of the ufo to make us walk past it.. couldnt get a photo my phone sucks in low light
