  1. Definitely going to have to make it to Indiana Beach whenever this COVID thing settles down. Nice to see the new owners investing in the park already.
  2. From their FB page it appears they did open last year but they haven't posted anything since August 2019.
  3. Another classic ride is leaving a park owned by Parques Reunidos (also owners of Kennywood, Idlewild and various other parks). The trabant ride at Lake Compounce in Connecticut is being retired. https://www.facebook.com/LakeCompounce/posts/10158490762370272 Not sure how many people here have visited that park given that it's an 11½ hour drive from Cincy but always sad to see classic rides retired.
  4. Cedar Fair announced Q3 earnings a few days ago. As expected, things aren't pretty. I'm not a finance guy so I'll let others comment on this in more detail. https://ir.cedarfair.com/news/news-details/2020/Cedar-Fair-Reports-Results-for-Its-2020-Third-Quarter/default.aspx
  5. Apparently getting all of the 2021 season for free isn't good enough for some people... https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2020/09/season-pass-holders-sue-cedar-points-owner-over-reimbursements-for-shortened-season.html
  6. Given what happened last October (see https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/10/cedar-points-new-gold-pass-good-weather-combine-for-crowded-halloweekends.html for a refresher), I'm not at all surprised by this decision. Granted, that was during normal times and part of that was likely due to Haunt, but even so, better safe than sorry. Hopefully this works out well for them.
  7. Good luck getting approval to tunnel under an active interstate highway. Doing that without disrupting traffic flow at all would be a challenge.
  8. It's a shame they don't want anyone taking over. Hopefully someone will step up and make a new site. If I lived in the area and/or were an active member of that site I'd consider doing so myself.
  9. Might want to try Cincinnati Book Publishing as well if you haven't. They've published several local history books (Good Samaritan Hospital, the old Terrace Plaza Hotel, etc.) so they might be interested, especially given that they're local.
  10. Wanted to try this on Saturday but they were sold out by the time we were getting dinner (around 7). Ended up going for pizza because the line for that wasn't too long in Festhaus. Panda line was long like usual and the line for Hank's was out the door and moving slow (stood in line for close to 10 minutes and still wasn't inside - didn't want to wait 20+ minutes for food)
  11. More importantly we have a beagle
  12. Are you forgetting about the one at Beech Bend? Only 3½ hours from Cincinnati and also home to an excellent GCI woodie.
  13. I've always thought a good Wild Mouse would be a great addition for KI. I'm not sure why we don't have one yet.
  14. One interesting note regarding rides... Coney has always held their fireworks competition in late September after the pool closed. Last year's event drew large crowds (we got there mid to late afternoon and I still waited 20 minutes to put my niece on a kiddie ride...). This year they had planned to hold it in mid-June instead. The only reason I can think of for this change is that having the pool open would have encouraged people to come earlier and spend more (compared to not having the pool), like the rides always did. I was particularly looking forward to seeing if the lack of rides a
