  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Woah! I remember that day with Uncle Henry filming this video!
  9. Here it is, my full review of Orion... In what may be the most divisive roller coaster in the industry, since it's announcement Orion was split down the middle with the GP and enthusiasts that had excitement and dissatisfaction. Many aspects of the ride was critically dissected from it's theme, layout, height and overall experience. I made my own interpretations but knew when it came to my first ride I would clear those preconceived notions and go into the experience with an open mind. That being said on a cold windy day on its final operating day of its opening year of 2020 I finally was
  10. It may be possible. In 2008 when working on the ride in the drive box we have panel that shows the speed of trains in the shed (long stretch of covered track), the quick dip (the lowest point in the ride), and the entry into the final helix. During some Haunt days I recall seeing hits of speeds at 73-75mph at the quick dip. During colder temperature they would remove the trims at the mid course.
  11. Tomb Raider The Rides sign and Plaza continues to be my favorite!
  12. It's a bit much to try and dissect this (or spend time on) to even come to any conclusions regarding this. It may not even be a delivery. It easily could be relocations of already owned products.
  13. Cool yes, but it's a joke to sell it at that price! I'm sure some hardcore enthusiasts will dish out the cash but I just can't see myself being a proud owner a small piece of track for that price. Much like watching a live broadway or movie, at the end if you can forget about the price you paid because of the enjoyment you got out of the product provided to you I consider that a good investment. This I would have on a shelf as a looming reminder of spending $200.
  14. Much like PKIC acquired PKIU I ponder the idea of perhaps KIC doing the same for Carowinds Connection. This site since I joined in 2004 has grown so much, I feel the next logical step in it's growth is to extend to the fansite base for Cedar Fair (which currently there is none).
  15. Well if we can pick MT I choose Tomb Raider The Ride
  16. I didn't laugh. I'm guessing no I'll intent was meant but If you come out of left field with responses like that when their is little history of that behavior it leaves me to question. If he were running an account like Kentucky Kingdoms twitter a response like that would be much more forgiving/funny/expected
  17. Was able to capture the photo below of the suspect trying to flee in an unmarked car.
  18. I think we all understood what the original poster meant, not about the actual length but the time. I think Orion will be a great ride when I get the chance to ride. But some of the reviews coming in with their minor notes on it's length I've seen are something I'm not ignoring. Still, it does look like a fun ride regardless.
  19. Didn't we already have a ride with a Jeep at the entrance? #TRTR
  20. Sure was! Just like the return of the water feature that year at the turn-around cave. As for what music it was Joshua... I don't recall the entire playlist but it was a collection of music about 30-40 minutes long.
