  1. Wait has the park ever said that? I hear people on here say things like that all the time but it would be really surprising to hear that someone from the park said that lol. You have a good point though regardless.
  2. Oh wow I'm pretty sure I'd just stop coming back to work after a couple days of that. That sounds awful. lol
  3. Totally agree! The music over in that section has been great lately. Also I guess this is an unpopular opinion around here now but I still like the Rivertown music.
  4. Yeah that's what I meant by the very next sentence lol.
  5. Oh good, sounds like they're going to be annoyingly over the top and hyper vigilant for a while like a 16 year old lifeguard. Oh well, at least they hired more security and hopefully we won't have any more big problems at the park.
  6. I don't know how much you guys were keeping tabs on it, but the same thing happened when they yoinked a bunch of days from CP's operating calendar. People figured it out HOURS before there was any mention from the park about it. In addition to that the website still showed the park being open those days, you just couldn't make reservations for the park or the hotels. People were @ing them on twitter and they just didn't respond. I get that they probably wanted time to coalesce around a message before saying anything but I think it just ****ed a lot of people off. You bring up the point about Social Media being dormant and it makes me wonder if they've been told to just kind of leave those accounts alone for a while until all this blows over lol.
  7. I hear you. I got an email from them about it and just happened to see it, otherwise I wouldn't have even known lol.
  8. My take on it was the decreased hours are to prevent another security situation while they sort everything out. I'd bet money the Mason police recommended the temporary change. I'm sure they've been able to hire more security but it's going to take a couple weeks to get things on track in that regard. I don't have any inside information obviously so I could totally be wrong that's just what I'm thinking.
  9. I wasn't aware that was something they could do.
  10. Uh....how much do you know about the 70's and 80's? Also, I'm not that old thank you very much! lol. No idea why you'd assume that. I really don't think highschool kids should have to bring their mom to go to Kings Island just because Cedar Fair has completely botched the first 3 weeks of the season. The individuals who caused this are of course at fault for their own actions, but some of the responsibility here absolutely goes to the park.
  11. People keep using the word daycare....How many 14-15 year olds did all you guys know that went to daycare? Once you're that age going somewhere is just called "doing something".
  12. Wow yeah this is crazy that people want this I agree with you completely. I've lived in this region my entire life and I'm sure it's been the same for a lot of you that the first time you're able to walk around at Kings Island without your parents is a right of passage around here (even if you had to meet back at the Eiffel Tower by 4pm. EXACTLY 4pm). One of my first "dates" with my wife was at KI on a fall Saturday back when we were both in 8th grade. I have GREAT memories of going to Kings Island with my friends at that age. I'm amazed that people are applauding Kentucky Kingdom enacting a policy that forces High School freshman to walk around an amusement park with their parents. If there's anyone who should be absolutely able to enjoy amusement parks, wouldn't it be people that age? It's funny because I'd bet money that some of the people on this board pushing for this change are the same people that go on and on about how soft kids are nowadays because parents baby them and won't let them do anything. The reason Cedar Fair keeps getting bad press lately is largely on their own shoulders. You go into a season where you know staffing is going to be a challenge, try to hire security cards for like $1.50 an hour LESS than Walmart pays people to decorate birthday cakes, and then wonder why fights are breaking out in the park.
  13. I like your answers a lot, but this one especially. I'm really worried they're going to keep the shrunken calendar. I mean especially since they're business is so much about passes and things like the meal plan, it seems they might actually have more of an incentive to operate less.
