  1. I was wondering why he would wait this long to announce that he doesn't think Kennywood is safe. He's had the entire off season to work with them on any potential security concerns.
  2. Interesting news. I have yet to visit Kennywood (which is actually a bit surprising given that I've visited numerous other PA parks that are much further away), but apparently the county's district attorney wants security changes to prevent another incident like what happened back in October. https://www.wtae.com/article/zappala-kennywood-safety/43409986
  3. Definitely keeping my eyes on this but it sounds like a whirlwind 3-park PA trip might be in the works for me next year - I've been wanting to get back to Hershey and Knoebels (haven't been to either since 2018), and Dorney is in that general vicinity as well (about 90 minutes from both Hershey and Knoebels as I recall).
  4. Nice to see how much progress has been made in the almost 3 months since I was there. Looking forward to riding it later this year.
  5. A nice article about Jack Rouse, who worked in various roles in the early days of the park, first with live entertainment for Taft and eventually as CEO of KECO. https://www.cincinnatimagazine.com/article/jack-rouse-is-cincinnatis-unofficial-minister-of-fun/
  6. Scary moments in London yesterday. https://www.lbc.co.uk/news/winter-wonderland-hyde-park-slingshot-ride-snaps-two-passengers-trapped/
  7. Not an amusement park but still related to the topic... The Cincinnati Zoo has replaced its train with a new electric one. The old one was a standard Chance Rides CP Huntington train. The zoo had two locomotives but only used one (I'm guessing they either rotated them or used one as a spare). I'm assuming this one is from Chance as well. https://cincinnatizoo.org/news-releases/ride-the-new-electric-train/
  8. The Serpent roller coaster which operated at LeSourdsville Lake/Americana is heading to a new home (again). It's now headed to Niagara Amusement Park in Grand Island, New York (near Buffalo). It most recently operated at Kokomo's Family Fun Center in Saginaw, Michigan. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1159784868260094
  9. As far as I can tell they haven't even announced any changes for 2023. Right now their FB posts are either about season passes or the Nights of Lights thing.
  10. I wonder how long this will last. Cedar Point tried that one season and ended up bringing CFA back the next year.
  11. Interesting news, though not being well versed in stocks or finances I'm not entirely sure what this means. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3897667-cedar-fair-cut-to-neutral-at-credit-suisse-due-to-elevated-expenses
  12. Several cars on the train at Silver Dollar City derailed tonight. Fortunately it doesn't sound like anyone was seriously injured, but several people were taken to a local hospital. https://www.ozarksfirst.com/local-news/local-news-local-news/heavy-emergency-responder-presence-at-silver-dollar-city/
  13. It will definitely be interesting to see what eventually goes in where Vortex once stood. However, if they do add something there I'd expect other major improvements to that area as well (at the very least a new food stand since the only one in that part of the park is Jukebox Diner, which doesn't handle crowds all that well)
  14. I think this is a great addition to the park though I am surprised KI waited this long to announce it. Should be fun to see if the lines for Adventure Express get longer next season considering it usually has one of the shortest lines of all the coasters in the park.
