  1. Not asking to jump to conclusions, asking if anyone knows any similarities between the rides, Same rafts? Same manufacturer? Similar layout? Etc. I’ve never been to the Iowa park
  2. There was a death yesterday in Iowa for the Raging River ride in Adventureland Park that sounds similar to WWC at KI. https://abcnews.go.com/US/dead-injured-raft-overturns-water-ride-amusement-park/story?id=78669883 Any concerns riding at KI?
  3. @mcarter how was it today? Did you use FP?
  4. Yesterday, got to the park at 1030 for ERT and was able to ride Orion and Banshee in that 30 min window. Moved to Racer which is an incredible ride w the new tracking. Hit DB, MT and Beast to finish. 1.5 hours, 6 rides! Does anyone know if KI plans Racer tracking of second half plus paint job leading into the 50th anniversary next year?
  5. How much did one serving cost?
  6. Monday July 5 is when most US employees have the holiday off. The park will be jam packed. FL+ might be the only way to enjoy the day
  7. But then you can’t stick out both legs. Riding with legs and arms out is the way to enjoy DB
  8. To raise additional revenue for the park, how about the monsters in the MT shed be changed to known local advertising characters? Oh no! It’s the Big Boy!! Or... OMG it’s Rosie Red!! Run!
  9. I’d like to solve the puzzle, Pat.
  10. Yes, raise he**. That is completely 100% unacceptable. Were they really thinking you were going to quickly go and get some alcohol in your system perhaps?
  11. Face coverings are not required outdoors unless it is not possible to maintain 6’ of social distancing.
  12. The rules KI set forth are not being followed, as I predicted last week.
  13. @SnakePlissken @coaster sally great 6 ft social distancing from the pics shown it appears lol. The virus is gone!
  14. The mask doesn’t help you but it helps from you spreading to others by cutting down the droplets in the air. So you will still be a threat to those high risk you live with . With this CP decision, GP leaving masks at home and will pass and be nearer than 6 feet. Send your pictures over the next several weeks, very interested to see y’all’s observations
  15. That’s exactly the problem, “socially distant.” Even on the midway it is difficult to have 6 feet gaps between individuals and groups. You have folks that can’t wear a mask properly, now asking them to stay 6 feet apart? Good frickin luck
  16. "Face coverings are not required outdoors unless it is not possible to maintain 6’ of social distancing." There is zero chance groups can keep 6 feet distance in the walkways around the park, yet alone in ride lines or on the ride itself. So basically masks are still mandatory.
  17. Yes, ticket services is located to the left of the front gate. If you've purchased daily tickets before, it is to the far left of that building.
  18. There will be lots of elearning occurring this year. A district can not force you to send your child to school during a pandemic. It is not truancy. I feel for the teachers that will be left to plan two lessons plans a day (for those in attendance, and those at home). In addition, Ohio cutting back on school payments means loss of more staff for districts. One large Ohio district will lose roughly 700 staff due to less money from Ohio.
  19. I'm not concerned about shade for those whose toxic fumes I have to inhale. They can suffer lol. Some of you were very put off with my earlier thoughts, and that is understood. It is a bit extreme. I think my problem with smokers has to do with the fact their activity impacts me more than any other vice. From having to inhale the smoke, to the littering with each butt. If smokers were considerate: 1) smoked where allowed, 2) tried to keep their smoke contained from non-smokers 3) AND this is a big one... properly disposed of their butts... it would be an entirely different story from me. I can only imagine the count of butts left on the ground from the entrance to the parking lot. Instead I'm left with the impression that most, not all, are lazy, inconsiderate, and for starting the habit in the first place I view them as weak minded.
  20. Agree. I was on the wheels of a Racer car last year, and it was the first time in my life that I wasn't even halfway done with the ride and I wanted it to be over. Ow, my head. Brain felt like it was sloshing.
  21. I like the Access Pass idea, nice !
  22. You have air flowing from the top of your mask towards your eyes. Seal that up better and you won't have fogging issues. Could consider some tape or a better fitting mask. N95 you can adjust the nose through the strip of metal, a handmade / handkerchief you will have problems.
  23. Yes smoking is an addiction. And addicts are, in general, weak minded. Really, you can't handle your stress so have to smoke? Thanks for proving my point.
  24. My point of view on smokers is negative, I'll admit that. I think those that smoke are weak-minded in general. I get really riled up with littering, I don't understand the rationale that it's ok just to throw your butt anywhere. In addition, the process reeks. The thing is, smokers do not realize how much they stink until they quit and are around smokers again. So any push for the park to become even more smoke free to me is positive. I wish they would do like our government parks and completely ban it from the premises including parking lot.
