  1. It's getting the RMC treatment, it's also going to be a Giga (but not really). Welcome back UncleHenry. When is KIC Survivor season 3?
  2. I open this topic and BOOM there's my face. But the answer is yes, we old-timers do still lurk this site time to time. We have grown, started families, and can only ride coasters in moderation now, but we are still here.
  3. With that professional shot of Vortex I fully expect just as awesome a pic of TOPGUN1993 fashioning that KIC shirt!
  4. As former moderator, let's move conversations to personal messages if they do not pertain to any specific discussion on the topics on our forum. This is KIC, not a YouTube comment section
  5. Dozens of videos on Snapchat, YouTube, and the now trending #GreatAmerica on Twitter shows massive crowds running out of the park. Reports are still coming in but looks to have been a large scale evacuation.
  6. As great a park Cedar Point is it is not news to anyone they it becomes more and more popular each year especially now as it advertises as a resort destination. Parking and transportation to the park as we all know is unfortunately not the prime entrance we all hope for but what can a park do with it's only entrance to and from is through a 4 lane road and a small town? From a consumer point of view what do you think needs to be done or wish could be done to create a better parking/transport to and from Cedar Point? _____________________ My ideas: Segregating parking: As it stands now it's a free-for-all for all public parking spots, that includes the water park and for some the resorts. The back have parking lot should be closed to only waterpark / resort patrons. During the summer while I was there and the waterpark was open, there are absolutely zero spaces left in the back parking lot. As Cedar Point looks to become a resort, they need to make sure that their patrons have adequate parking for all their areas. New parking garage: On top of separating parking, I do believe both the back parking lot and front need to be replaced with a parking structure garage. they have enough space to create a parking structure with adequate amount of space with many on and off ramps to keep traffic flowing (much how universal uses their parking structure) Expand the causeway: at the moment it is a four-lane road. Two on and two off. during some of those more crowded days it is not uncommon to see them close one of the incoming lanes to use that has an extra Lane; this however creates a merging traffic issue at the end of The causeway as you need to merge back into two lanes. Additionally there's another merging issue from those entering the causeway from the back parking lot. Create a new entry parking plaza: much like Kings Island expanded there's, Cedar Point has only 6 toll booths. Considering Cedar Point invests in a parking structure, this new entry parking plaza can better direct people to certain parking based on their desires of the visit. Additionally more toll booths that are built the more cars that go through. Off peninsula parking: this idea comes as a two part of which all further go into in the next section. While the area outside of the causeways pretty much developed, this comes more as a (if the opportunity arises). But next comes the transportation to the peninsula. Park transportation: one thing many regional Parks have ceased in the past 20 years is complimentary transportation. The only resort that does this is Disney. Disney has their buses the monorail and now the new skyliner. Cedar Point does not have the budget Disney does but there are definitely options available. I believe some off Park transportation should be made as the peninsula is quite a large area of land. As it stands now a sky ride would be the cheapest option. If a station were to be built at Castaway Bay (can also be a pick-up point for the parking structure off the peninsula), perimeter road between front entrance and Pier, Hotel Breakers, and waterpark entrance. Lastly it just comes down to working with the city of Sandusky to work on better traffic patterns during peak times. Unfortunately again the entrance to the park is in the middle of a small town, there's no right or wrong way to do it as large projects like these May displace families that have lived in this town for generations. If the city were able to come up with a plan for a direct access to OH-2 (maybe by building a new access ramp between Cedar Point Dr and Cedar Point road)
  7. So in terms of GP reaction I have already heard from 2 people all the way in Vegas of their reaction to the closure... And it was confusion and more so unhappy. The biggest takeaway I got from this is just how far and wide this particular ride has become public knowledge. it is widely one of the most photographed coasters in the world, at one point I'm sure a photo of this ride has been in one of your physics textbooks. That being said I'm quite unhappy with how the announcement went. An early a.m. tweet and blog post just isn't the way to go. Feels like a break up via text. KI I love visiting your park but this was not the way to retire such a legendary ride. it's a shame that you who work for this great part don't share the same enthusiasm. Words of advice, the next arrow you decide to remove make sure you give it a farewell season.
  8. Please be more specific because photos from private airplanes and photos taken of the park from off property are all reasonable sources as well.
  9. Have you visited Magic Mountain, or New England, or GAdv, Fiesta Texas or Great America? This parks are amazing and I don't think the general public is going to feel embarrassed by an announcement because the company providing it is for ENTERTAINMENT. I kind of appreciate that they have fun with their announcement video and put some pizzazz into it.
  10. With Orion announced I feel it is a good time to bump this topic. I only got to visit a few times but would love to hear of anyone found some cool eggs!
  11. This Coaster for SFGAdv looks UH-MAZING! So happy for the east coast getting some love! May be alongside with RMC Gwazi for best New coaster!
  12. No... Stop... Don't give any ideas. The building has been through enough torture since the closure of TRTR.
  13. I personally am not taking much away from this campaign. Hear me out, the whole thing up to this point has been spoon fed information (additionally incorrect Information. IE the tape). As far as we now know the numbers, the information, and images mean nothing. The only thing we were provided were letters to an acronym that was easily decoded. But beyond that all the hidden things on the posters we previously thought were something; up till now, meant nothing. Additionally the hashtag TEOTWAWKI, I don't see the park using this to lead us on a new journey. It just gave us a hashtag with a dead end and no further action. The petition seems odd, just something to keep time going until the announcement and no reward, if anything they will say at 3000 signatures they will give an announcement date. Not being negative. This is just my personal takeaway I'm sure many of you have different opinions which are perfectly fine. I just think with the way this coasters information all but leaked they could have really used that to create an amazing campaign full of misdirection. Again this was just what I thought.
  14. I hope they use the former TRTR building as the world's most expensive screen for the announcement!
