  1. not really a big fan of the limited menu that chains bring in. i usually go with brew house and the inside seating places. I also tend to go with the grilled chicken over breaded. just a preference.
  2. had a similar incident on orion. Got flagged on my car insurance app for speeding while on Orion. Now i simply disable the location tracking before I get in the park.
  3. well I would think the second half of The Racer needs retracked and probably more retracking on The Beast. Also definetly more parking lot work, especially at Soak City are needed. Not sure you can much of this document outside of routine work on coasters like retracking and working on chain lifts etc. I think they just list all things they might do so they include all vendors which doesn't mean all those will be doing any work this off season.
  4. I would love another B&M due to the high volume of guest they push through. But I just feel with the amount of B&M in thepark they might go with another manufacturer for diversity. My top 2 wishes woud be a ground up RMC as none of the woodies will ever get RMC'd and the other choice would be an intamin launch like velocicoaster/ Maverick (CP). However with the amount of down time Maverick experiences at CP not sure KI wants to go that route. Intamin may need to hit a home run with the re do of dragster in order to get new business with Cedar Fair, So I would like to see an RMC. RMC does I believe also offer magnet launch options so a launch RMC would be awesome . just my opinion.
  5. I did the same thing. went to cp one time this year. So I went with gold pass only with food, drinks and photo which came to $ 364. If I go to CP my son has platinum and we will do a bring a friend discount and I'll just pay for all day drinks. VIP area really doesn't do anything for me .
  6. i like. as far as kids go i like the restraint at cp for snake river falls. But usually the summer vists are coasters until 1, then Soak City till around 4 , back in the park with swim stuff still on and white water canyon and congo falls and then coasters the rest of the nite after dinner. So I would definetly miss Congo falls it went away. Although without paramount movie rigts and of course the area it takes up I might like to see it in Rivertown. Probably not possible though.
  7. good youtube video from theme park predictions on the fact Cedar Fair has zero water coasters well except for the water park they purchased (Schlitterbahn) which already had two water coaster
  8. well the vip section was around 39 a day before the prestige pass offered. So I would think it will take the parks a bit to get everything on the same page as far as what the demand will be in the vip area. Since the rollout was a bit lacking in clarity as to what was offered at what park I elected to skip the prestige and stay with the gold/platinum for 2023 and let everything play out for a year. I may go with the prestige after next season (2024) but that will depend on what the reviews the people on this site give for prestige in the 2023 season.
  9. watch the documentary Class Action Park about Action Park in New Jersey in the late 70's early eighties. Lots of that went on amongst guest and employees. Lots of underage drinking without supervision amongst the high school/college age staff and you can guess what sort of things happened.
  10. the closest thing to a water coaster is mondo monsoon. Great wolf next store has 2 decent ones. Not huge but decent for an inside park. Yes i visit the water park nearly trip there in the summer.
  11. not something I would expect from folks above 30. Would think maybe kids in the early twenties. But I guess. Hope it was worth it as far as $$ the court case/fines will run.
  12. chaperone policy enter stage right. The only parks with issues are those near urban areas with public transportation systems. Never have seen much as far unaccompanied minors causing problems at CP, however have seen it at KI. If these parks want to make $$ and become a family destination for vacations they may have to make some hard choices.
  13. not a shock. The choice is to raise ticket prices or institute a chaperone policy. If the goal is to not be a daycare service which of course as we have seen leads to a need for more security.
  14. it is my understanding that upgrades need to be done at the home park. I upgraded at KI to platinum from Gold in July to get CP access without problems. Only issue was funpix had to re enter my email at keyhole photo. Not sure why. May have something to do with the qr code. But it must done at the issuing park from what I have been told from others.
  15. they also do not have public transportation that drops people off at the front gate. CP is more a resort where aside from the people from michigan/sndusy area mosy stay on site/hotel. This is why you see more crowds at CP mon-fri while KI is not nearly as busy. These are 2 different parks with 2 slightly different ways of doing business. So I understand the difference in price. Not a problem to me.
  16. I believe there is no early entry at CP for gold pass. Not sure on the other parks.
  17. yes gold pass is slightly more at KI than CP , but CP has no early entry for gold pass. However my visit this year to CP had Mellenium Force, Maverick and steel vengence all down to start the day. That kind of puts a damper on early access.
  18. i did puchase my gold pass today. So basically a no to pestige and down grade platinum as I went to CP once this year. However to the point of the thread I feel CF is pushing KI as the family park in Ohio and most amusement park publications are indicating a push that way as families spend more $$$ than young people looking for the next 300 foot coasters. So yes the next improvements are probably Planet Snoopy and Soak City and another dining establishment with indoor seating. Would love a water coaster in oak city. Not really surprised with the lack of anything new next season. I know every one on this site is in the big coaster thrill group. just trying to be real about it.
  19. good to know. thanks. sitting at camp cedar. Rain chased us out of Soak City. park was very crowded today.
  20. oops scratch that. there are now some saying this would apply to Fast Lane and not Fast Lane plus. However not sure that has really been clearly defined yet. the website front of the line . Anyone have any clarity on this?
  21. I may or may not. The one perk that would appeal to me would be the one front of the line per visit for that very difficult to get night ride on The Beast.
  22. hope you have a fun trip. I'll be ther sun thru tues. It has been my experience to expect afternnon thunderstorms of some sort in August in the Cincy area. Has happened to me or often than not.
  23. I guess the only perk I see woul be to use the one per visit from of the line benfeit for a nite ride on The Beast. The parking, vip doesn't really appeal to me. Maybe the free bring a friend for free. Have to wait and see what is taken away from the platinum/gold passes. However not inclined to spend 399 for prestiege plus. Also would lie to know if rides will open for the 2 hour early entry, although 9 am seems a bit early for coasters.
  24. not really appealing to me .... at this time. I usually visit during the week. well except for the haunt. So fast line, vip areas not really a thing I look at. maybe for the 2 hour early entrance, but so far no details on what if any rides would be open. So far now. Probably not.
