  1. I truly hope you are just being sarcastic when you mentioned Festhaus
  2. There is always something going on with the Webcam and always a "reason" it's offline. If you are not caught up on the craziness of the Webcam fiasco I recommend searching old topics and posts on its questionable history of being online and offline at all the right/wrong moments. I'm not even sure if the posts are still there so many were deleted. To be honest, it would make a great Netflix mystery Documentary.
  3. Not that I disagree, but rollercoasters as a historical landmark can be quite taboo outside of the community that enjoys them. Not even the GP know or understand what an ACE landmark is. They see a plaque and think, Oh this must be important. Now ACE landmarks are not voted upon politically, they are the enthusiasts deeming an attraction a landmark or not. Much like structures around the world, there has to come a time when their use cannot be of service anymore by a number of reasons. Take a look at Vegas which has seen a HUGE change in it's skyline in the past 50 years. Truly iconic re
  4. One of Kings Islands most ambitious project to date has been Tomb Raider: The Ride. Without turning this into a history of the attraction Tomb Raider closed at the end of the 2007 season and it's follow up The Crypt closed the ride for good at the end of the 2011 season. For over a decade the Queue facade, tunnel, and show building has been standing in the ashes of what was once a headliner attraction as a seasonal Halloween Haunt maze. Now that it has been a decade since the rides removal, what do you feel should be done with this plot of land?
  5. Kind of ridiculous! They can tell themselves it isn't age discrimination but in a court of law I don't see that working in Cedar Fairs favor if it came to that.
  6. The chat in the topic at the time was if it would affect the new water park expansion. Which ultimately they did. This Cicada Brood only stuck around deciduous trees, like elm, chestnut, ash, maple, and oak. If you have a fear of insects don't think you won't see one or perhaps hit one while at KI. If that doesn't bother you then keep an eye out for the Blue eyed ones, there are big collectors that will pay a pretty penny for them!
  7. Wow... 17 years ago I was posting on PKIUnlimuted about the same brood. How are they back already where did the past 17 years go?!
  8. Dec 13, 2004 was my very first post on PKICentral. I was a member of PKIUNLIMITED from 2003. My first post there was in regards to cicadas in the water park.
  9. In a more open ended question; Most if not all rollercoasters around the world follow a very linear path where the route taken can be seen before and during the ride. For attractions such as these there is no immersion to be discussed as it is built as just a thrilling attraction. But for rides more so found in Universal or Disney built around densely themed areas, sometimes Roller coaster track and their mechanics can break this. Coasters such as Expidition Everest and Thunder Mountain they use the theme to incorporate itself into the track to further immerse the riders. But for so
  10. I'd like to start that this post is in no way any sort of comparison to current corperate positions. Just my memory of the early 2000s with Jeff and Maureen. The relationship was a fantastic bond of Corporate from the park and its Fans. You can look back at older youtube videos of old tours and events and even the spoof videos for IJST, Son of Beast, and my all time favorite Tomb Raider The Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide! Jeff and Maureen were quite the power house together and down to earth people that just loved their job. Just listening to Maureen at a winter tour make fun of
  11. In order; 1) Green lantern at SFMM 2) Green lantern at SFMM 3) Green lantern at SFMM Runner-ups; Gwazi, T3, Iron Wolf and every other stand up B&M
  12. This poll is extremely askewed at its current poll position, granted they have 10 days left in the poll but somethings we know are above others and vise versa that should not be from a realistic perspective. To say Catwoman's Whip is above Runaway Railway Or Cheetah Chase well above Rise of the Resistance? I want to take polls like this seriously but this just does not feel genuine. I want to see the parks and hard working teams that worked years of their life on for these attractions to receive the gratitude and recognition that's deserved. But (for example) to the imagineers that works
  13. I don't understand how so many of you are upset over the land clearing of trees but Cedar Fair with their rides have done it for years with their new attractions.
  14. It was a HUGE event with real prizes. Members were chosen to compete in events on the forums such as answer extremely difficult questions or concept a new ride among other fun things. Only contestants could post in the topic while everyone else could watch and vote for their favorite. Personally never seen the forums boom as large as it was when a game commenced.
