  1. Yeah, I was going to be one of those waiting in the AM for the gates to open- but then I remembered I had other things to do. Actually, that's a lie- I had no intentions.
  2. I'm no arborist, but it could be that the trees lining iStreet had reached height maturity and once that happens their main growth would come from "regeneration"- meaning shedding branches and limbs to facilitate new growth. Now, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that a park with thousands of daily guests can't have trees lining a busy thoroughfare that are regularly shedding 100lb limbs. In that respect, the only option is to clear the slate and start over.
  3. I don't care about the quote, I just like the screen name!
  4. KI. At second glance though, maybe they have received a paint-refreshing.
  5. according to the image- is it just me or does it look like the iStreet buildings are largely untouched?
  6. Oh my word. Did you unwrap Christmas presents before Christmas day to see what was inside? If your answer is yes and your parents found out about it- they should have returned the gifts. Because it's intended for a surprise. If the park wanted people to see behind the curtain, they'd post pictures. if not- wait another 35-40'ish days. The original poster of the images asked, then didn't post the iStreet images. The conversation should have ended there. Zealots that can't wait a few weeks could be placing this site and its moderators at risk. Though Kings Island doesn't "own" this site- the site doesn't exist without the park: no Kings Island, no KIC. If the park feels like members of this site are improperly taking liberties with with their "private" property and decide its more trouble than worth they could choose to file a lawsuit corresponding to what they feel has been violated. Granted, I don't think it would be a case they could win- BUT it would cost "owners" of this site to lawyer up. I'm not sure what the payday is for moderating this site, but I doubt it would be feasible to enlist in a legal battle. Takeaway: Just wait. Go to work. Go to school. Read a book. Build your own anticipation of 75 degree days and walking through the park entrance in April. You're not entitled to anything; and the second you think the park owes you (or members of this site) something- here's a hint: they don't. Think of someone other than yourself. In other words, stay in your lane. Baxter, Out.
  7. I like how they didn't need a "fence" to tell people to not go in to the fountain- and a tall fence to keep people out of the yard in front of The Racer. Almost like people used to know that sort of thing... and we have to be told today.
  8. so, wait a minute. All I have to do to trigger someone on this site is to mention "Intamin"? Crap, I didn't know it was that easy- whole new ballgame folks.
  9. "To quote future Nobel Prize winner Lee Greenwood, 'I'm proud to be an American.' Not just because I have the right to speak my mind or carry an awesome gun, but because it's the land of opportunity. Some whiny babies might not think so, but in America, if you work hard, anyone can be successful. Anyone. Any.one. Any one." That goes on and on. I keep doing it.

  10. Don is an Area Manager for Digital Marketing- this is a bit out of the scope of his job description and several levels under where those decisions are made.
  11. I agree. Could have been a unique centerpiece. Let me submit, though, that that level of theming isn't Cedar Fair's signature. Just bring them in taller, faster, etc... then watch them become obsolete by the next taller, faster one in a few years.
  12. It's a park renovation. Why on earth burn plane fuel and money to sneak a peak. Commercial flights come no where close to flying low enough to grab a picture- besides, I don't think pilots take flight pattern requests. It's only a couple months. take a deep breath; go sledding; take up a hobby; and wait. It'll be OK.
  13. "inside" joke... only a small handful know the references. One was several years ago, the other several weeks.
