  1. I'm one of those people helping to drive down per capita spending. I visited at least a dozen times last season and rarely spent any money at the park other than purchasing a poncho once or twice.
  2. I was hoping they'd be able to fix it so I could ride it when I visit the park in July. Such a shame.
  3. Hope the victim survives. Those are some pretty serious injuries.

    Coasterstock 2019 - May 17th & 18th

    Congratulations on the upcoming second child @CoastersRZ I am probably going to attend again this year, but am thinking of skipping HoliWood Nights this year. As much as I love HWN and Holiday World, doing two enthusiast events in less than a month is always a lot of work.
  6. This could be interesting... https://www.cbsnews.com/news/seaworld-shares-surge-as-six-flags-said-to-be-interested/

    JavaScript breakage

    This issue has crept up again. Chromium 71 on Arch Linux and Chrome on Android 8.
  8. On the subject of the shirt pictured several posts up, you can get it here... https://cincyshirts.com/products/need-for-speed
  9. Minor issue, but up at the top of the page, if you click "+ Create" then choose "Topic", the list of forums you can select from shows forums that aren't even visible to me. I can't actually select them since I can't post in them but I would think this would at least limit it to things I could actually see.

    Kings Island Super 8 reel from 1972

    My former coworker's brother (who I believe is the grandson of the guy who shot that Fessler footage) posted some of it to Facebook in 2017 and more to YouTube last year.

    Carowinds

    LKN Mini Golf in Cornelius is highly rated on both Yelp and TripAdvisor (under the name "Lake Norman Mini Golf"). It's about 30 minutes north of Charlotte according to Google.
  13. Hopefully this will go chain wide. Also shouldn't it be "trying" and not "tearing"?

    Carowinds

    Right now I'm planning to do two full days at both CW and KD, though that could change if I decide to throw a trip to BGW in there as well...

    Carowinds

    I actually did consider a trip out west next summer (SFStL, SDC and WoF) but decided a Carowinds/Kings Dominion trip would be more affordable, plus I've been wanting to hit those parks for a long time.

    Carowinds

    Looking forward to visiting Carowinds this summer (planning a Carowinds and KD trip in July, with a possible stop at BGW as well depending on time and finances)
  17. It is $6 now (for ages 12+). https://cincinnatiusa.com/things-to-do/attractions/carew-tower-observation-deck
  18. They worked that out a while back. They're going to build a pier off the floodwall then put the wheel on that instead: https://local12.com/news/local/newport-officials-approve-sale-of-bonds-for-skywheel I haven't heard anything else as far as when construction is supposed to start though

    KICentral Survey

    I'm wondering how many people are aware that the software actually works well on mobile devices. I don't see much of an issue with the mobile experience myself.
  20. I didn't notice that before I posted the link. Unfortunately I don't think there's a way to get around their paywall.

    You down with S-N-OO-P?

    Some kids do care. My oldest niece (who will be 3 in a few months) is obsessed with Snoopy. She's got several stuffed Snoopys and loves watching The Peanuts Movie, even though she's not old enough to understand most of it.
