  1. So if you say Confirmed.... Can you say "300 million dollar investment in the next 10 years confirmed" right here into the microphone
  2. Or just give it a year without power washing
  3. https://youtu.be/Uogymbk2VCI After seeing videos of the concept now in action I have a much better impression of the new stand-up design & I gotta say I'm impressed! If a manufacturer sees upgrade potential in a product that's often bottom ranked rollercoasters, then B&M looks to have (FINALLY) fixed Stand Up rollercoasters! Pipeline at SeaWorld showcases the first product wonderfully and looks like it's a hit with fans and guests. If this is where Surf Coasters begin it is my hope they go all out with the airtime on the next iteration! I can't believe I'm actually about to say this after vowing to never ride another... I'm kinda excited to ride this standup one day. While I am against the idea of Kings Island getting another B&M for their next coaster. If it's a Surf I'll have no problem with that! Bring on the return of King Cobra!
  4. Like fine wine! Feels like yesterday we were talking about #5 is alive.
  5. This news more so made me realize just how OLD I am because I remember going on this it's opening year.
  6. Dude... Sandra and Dannys car just flew over the parking lot!!! Unreal
  7. I've wondered the same thing. Tried to remove it in the past. Not to sound like a millennial but... No one uses AIM anymore
  8. As long as you weren't thinking it's too dark then I'd say they work!
  9. I haven't seen it in person and don't know how the show comes across live, but watching through a video... It was kinda cringe at some parts. Does it come off that way in person?
  10. Not technically a ride, but I'd like to mention what was removed in order for Diamondback to be built. IMO Diamondback removed more then it gave with that being the entire vibe of Rivertown. DBs construction is responsible for the removal of the TRTR plaza, old Beast plaza, the lake, Rivertown Mining buildings, and pretty much obliterated the aesthetics of Rivertown. I enjoy Diamondback, but I would gladly take back old Rivertown.
  11. Or... Imagine this. A company that utilizes AI to create an immersive screen based attraction content. Basically a user can Input the kind of ride they want and AI will do the rest. We're closer than you may think to this technology becoming a very real thing.
  12. Yoooo Rickster! Good to see you still on this site after all these years!
  13. Not necessarily, the footage on the 360 camera I captured at BGT was amazing, felt like footage out of a commercial. Again, it was done with body mounting gear.
  14. It's a forum. We noticed the new paint on the walls and now are discussing the roof. Most topics of construction will be dissected here as we receive updates.
  15. If the launch water coaster is a success at Six Flags, this would be the perfect plot.
  16. Also the park has moved on from it's show building aesthetics back when it was Paramount. Other than Diamondback, each new attraction has made it's corresponding area beautiful without many ugly sightlines. That building has DB right over the entrance to the cave, plus I think having it removed would allow WWC entrance to have some air to breathe and most importantly, open up the area for expansion.
  17. Even though I love and miss with a passion TRTR, it's time to pull that bandaid and just remove it. But... At the same time KI is in DESPERATE need of a thrilling dark ride and the building is there. KI is lacking in the inversion department right now, only 3 coasters in the park have inversions so I'd love to see a thrill ride that includes inversions.
  18. No it does not. It's a conversation and clearly it is still ongoing. The discussion kind of went off topic from the original question which for everyone reading this I humbly ask to read. I updated the thread name to reflect this
  19. What is dark ride data base? You have to site a source with these claims.
  20. This is understandable, Any recording devices that are loose can become a dangerous projectile. What is needed is clarification. Cameras are everywhere and can just about be built into anything. Most action cameras today are built to be hands free and fully mounted. As I mentioned there's no rules against wearing glasses on attractions at CF parks. So the clarification needed is would the capturing of any footage (even if done with what is currently allowed item on rides) be against park rules.
  21. I think CF only allows mounted POVs. Checking Kings Island POVs on YouTube, I see that professional influencers (Those that get all POVs with park approval) created POVs by mounting the camera to the train itself. There are no body cam created footage that I can find. I did notice some POVs on Youtube (will not link due to TOS) were done with glasses/sunglasses. This does beg the question, Technically Glasses are allowed on rides but the rules state: For safety reasons, on-ride photography of any kind is prohibited on all rides except the Eiffel Tower and the Kings Island and Miami Valley Railroad. Due to the potential for water damage, White Water Canyon, Congo Falls and Race for Your Life Charlie Brown riders should leave their cameras and other valuable items with a non-rider or in a locker. Use of camera phones or any type of photography or video recording devices is prohibited in any rest room or Soak City changing area. Guests taking pictures or video while riding will be asked to leave the park with no refund given and may be cited with a misdemeanor under ORC 993.08. So this would make any footage captured on said glasses against park policy (even if glasses are allowed on the ride). So you could be ejected for recording footage even though the glasses are allowed in the park and the ride? Is it the footage that's the issue?
  22. Hmm, never knew about this? Is this stated on any Cedar Fair site?
  23. I recently visited Busch Gardens Tampa with my 360 camera on a wrist strap and rode each coaster with it, capturing some of the best footage that no park ORP could even imagine capturing. The park allows this with some rules that you must follow such as the type of harness/straps/mounts you must use. But it was very easy, I felt safe riding with the camera. Makes me wish that other parks including CF would do this and hope one day Cedar Fair adopts this policy. As far as I know the Disney and Busch/SeaWorld parks allow POV'ing. Disney being the most lenient in policy. I didn't see an issue with the policy at Busch, Not many people took advantage of it and I was one of 2 people in the park doing this.
  24. The left channel was Outdoor, right was indoor cave. Each one hour. But we shouldn't leave out during those years the following song played NONSTOP at Beast TVs
