    The Blue area is about 21k sq ft or .65ac. The red area wouldn’t work. 9k sq ft or .21ac.

    When do you think Kings Island will receive a Giga?

    I can’t see those low percentage drops being more than the ebb and flow of the business. If it was something like a 5-10% drop, then that might be indicative or a larger problem. Let’s also note that when the economy was down, people elected to stay closer to home which provided KI with gains. When the economy is good, people have extra money and travel further for entertainment and vacations. I just don’t see a big swing here. Some years are better than others, especially when new rides and attractions are added and for a season or two after. They may not be spending $30M on KI for 2019, but based upon a new attraction and the redoing of IS, I’m betting they’re easily spending $5M on improvements. The IS reconstruction can’t be cheap, especially with the fountain improvements. On the financial reports, the listing of improving those parks doesn’t give a timeline. That could be for the next year or the next ten. We really don’t know.

    We have a Japanese Maple here that has survived well, minus the one year where it got too warm and then rain froze on it. Someone forgot a continent...hmmm
  4. It doesn’t look like the covered bridge is finished. Will it be fully enclosed, or do we expect those openings to stay?

    I got it!!! We’re getting a Giga version of this! How do you “time” the accident each time...? https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/29/lightwater-valley-roller-coaster-accident_n_5904058.html

    Here’s the important info to watch for. FCC will actually post if a tower is undergoing specific changes.

    Last time I checked, KI wasn’t the FAA and couldn’t restrict airspace. People have done it before. I’m sure they will again.

    Airplane over the park, a drone, or just task a satellite. Many ways to see what is really going on.

    The current rides definitely help it out. When AZ became a thing was under Paramount, when they added TG and DZ and renamed the coaster everyone loves and hates to Face/Off. I remember the water tower. When it was AZ in the late 90s and early 2000s it worked. It just doesn’t anymore. A forest theming would be good. There are some trees. More could be added. They could also add in fake trees to help fill in the gaps until real trees can grow in. Banshee and Bat fit fine. Not sure how Delirium fits that. Congo falls is a stretch, Invertigo is completely wrong in color and name. That would have to change. DZ could easily become some kind of large tree themed ride. I think I would name it something like The Forest. It doesn’t have to be only one type of forest, it could be several different ones and it would still fit the Oktoberfest theme just fine.
  11. We haven’t seen that in any of the pictures yet. I’m sure there is more than 1 way to do this. You can’t see any metal sticking out from the middle of the new concrete roadway.

    I think you are right. It’s adding back in a trip hazard and unnecessarily narrowing things down. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Aren’t there a bunch of service roads back there? That see,s to me to be a bigger issue than the paths and terrain.

    Which picture shows the pedestals being painted? They look like rusted crap to me.
