  1. Sounds good to me! Maybe we can try to take over a coaster train or two as well. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. Getting around downtown Cincinnati

    For future reference, you can go to the Google Maps website and get directions that take into account when you're planning to leave or want to arrive at your destination - that will give you the typical travel times for the date/time you chose and, if you choose when you want to arrive, recommend when you need to leave in order to get to your destination on time.
  3. KICentral Apparel is now available!

    I don't need any more shirts but this will be a nice addition to my collection of KIC tees (I have the previous one that was offered as well as the two from 2009) Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    They may have. I was only over that way for a short time and it was dark by then. On an unrelated note, somehow my pass got renewed as a junior/senior pass instead of a regular pass. Had to go to the sales window and pay $59 to get that fixed, and I have to go to Guest Services tomorrow to get my dining plan straightened out.

    I didn't see much of the park tonight, having spent most of my time in Planet Snoopy, but I did notice a few other things not mentioned here so far: Tower Gardens is no longer a designated smoking area The Coca-Cola building in Coney Mall has been renovated - there's more room inside now and there are 6 Freestyle machines instead of 4 Several other general improvements in Coney Mall - a few new planters and seating areas along the midway
  6. WCPO: When the Timberwolf was the soundtrack of summer

    Didn't Timberwolf initially have a separate entrance from outside the park allowing you to attend concerts there without requiring park admission?
  7. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Ah. Depending on your definition of a hit, there's always "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls (#48 in 1982).

    Did someone say bad songs from the 80s? I leave you with this.
  9. I agree that Waldameer is a great park. That's the 2nd PA park I ever visited (the first being New Conneaut Lake Park). Maybe I'll get Lakemont in next year if they reopen like they plan (if I go back to PA that is - tentative plans for next year have me going to SFStL, SDC and WOF instead of hitting Pennsylvania).
  10. Part of the water park has reopened: http://www.cleveland19.com/story/37710253/part-of-kalahari-resorts-water-park-reopens-day-after-ductwork-falls-injures-5-people

    According to the USGS the river is currently at 55.05 feet. More rain on the way for a bit tomorrow (Thursday), but nothing like what we had last week. Still going to be a few days before we drop below flood stage probably.
  12. Sounds like a great idea. Cedar Point needs workers and college students need employment. Sent from my LG G5 using Tapatalk
  13. Stinger is the only coaster at Dorney that I didn't ride last year since it's essentially an Invertigo clone. Interestingly enough, it's also not too far from Dorney's Dinosaurs Alive...
  14. The Ridiculous Record Thread

    KI is the park that was home to the oldest Capriro Batflyer which is no longer in operation. There is one that opened in 1997 that's still in operation according to RCDB. KI's opened in 1998. All of the others which are no longer in operation all opened around 2000 or later.
  15. KI to Hire over 5,000 jobs for 2018

    I worked at the park for a few months in 2005 in the "East Pie" section of what was then Hanna Barbera Land (what ended up being the last year for HB). This included Beastie, the kiddie cars (now Peanuts 500), kiddie whip (Linus' Beetle Bugs), umbrella ride (Peanuts Off Road Rally) and helicopters (Woodstock's Whirlybirds), though at the time the kiddy whip and umbrella ride were in different spots than they are now (umbrella ride was located closer to the helicopters and kiddie whip was located in a back corner near what's now the entrance to Surf Dog). It was a lot of fun seeing the joy on the kids' faces, but it was also a bit frustrating at times (particularly Beastie, because they had raised the minimum height that year and they didn't have the height check station in the kids' area then so it was more common for kids to get measured and get a wristband at one of the rides).
