  1. If they do open next year I might have to find a way to squeeze in a stop at Lakemont next summer (like I did with Conneaut last year). I was planning to visit this summer until they announced they were closing for renovations. At least they're still going to be open for their holiday stuff.
  2. Holiday World has officially announced that the theme for next year's HolliWood Nights enthusiast event will be "Coastershack" (a take off on Caddyshack). More details here: https://www.holidayworld.com/holiblog/2017/11/10/postcast-one-coastershack/
  3. I tested it out by adding a buffet ticket to my cart. The processing fee is only $0.99.
  4. For info about ride controls and such, get in touch with the folks from Irvine Ondrey Engineering (http://www.irvineondrey.com and https://www.facebook.com/IrvineOndreyEngineering). Their website even says that "your questions about attractions controls are more than welcome" on their FB page. I don't know how much they do in the way of controls for flat rides but they do a lot with coasters, including Mystic Timbers.
  5. I haven't been through a drive-through lights display in years. As a kid we always went to the one at Sharon Woods, and one year we went to the one at Pyramid Hill in Hamilton. Will have to try and make it out to Coney's this year.
  6. On a somewhat related note, Christmas Nights Of Lights will be returning this year. It starts a week from tonight (the 10th) and runs through January 1st. http://coneyislandpark.com/event/christmas-light-show/
  7. It might also give me incentive to check out Dinos at CP next year (and/or Dorney if I end up there again - haven't really decided)
  8. The reason for that rule is that the admins and mods want to remain in good standing with the park, and also because KI prohibits employees from disclosing information that hasn't already been made public. It's easier to just deny all non public information than to pick and choose what's acceptable.
  9. From WGRR's Facebook page: Tapatalk users: https://www.facebook.com/103.5WGRR/ First post is a video of the haunted wedding. The second post is the winning couple along with WGRR morning show hosts Chris O'Brien and Janeen Coyle on Mystic Timbers.
  10. Or the zoo for that matter, with lots of Christmas lights visible now...

  12. Found a mistake... On the "Attractions" page for Winterfest, the picture shown for Peanuts 500 is not the version that's at Kings Island.
  13. I'm planning to spend most of my time on Closing Day in Planet Snoopy, though we'll likely make it over towards DA at some point because my niece loves Monster (at least while the ride is in motion - she's not a big fan of sitting in the air while another part of the ride is unloaded). It'll be interesting to see what they do with the area and if they do anything special for Winterfest since that would be a great area to jazz up for the holidays (even though there's less than a month between the end of regular operations and the start of Winterfest). Also, last I heard there was still a h
  14. From CP Food Blog: Link for Tapatalk users: https://www.facebook.com/CPFoodBlog/photos/a.176053225929995.1073741826.157350967800221/735575029977809/?type=3&hc_ref=ARSJHhQBCPLoPNeMd7zd10D4sn2iMojK7ljstDDfdvi3edFqeiRPXWcopfWSnZ0V13o
  15. I believe that's how many times your content has been "liked", though I'm not sure how the new reactions thing fits into that. @malem or @Dane can probably explain it in more detail.
  16. I'm not a Haunt person, but have vague memories of visiting the original Winterfest at least once as a kid. Looking forward to visiting Winterfest this season.
  17. Speaking of renewals, if any of you signed up for the auto-renewal feature, keep an eye on your email. I got an email from them the other day saying they needed my billing info (I paid with PayPal last year so they didn't have my card info) and that I needed to sign the payment agreement thing. I did all that today and am good to go when it starts taking payments out for next year. It will automatically renew your drink and dining plans as well.
  18. Trustees of Conneaut Lake repay all delinquent property taxes: http://www.erienewsnow.com/story/36154136/trustees-of-conneaut-lake-park-repay-all-delinquent-property-taxes#.WZVuJ0xfLuE.facebook
  19. I doubt there's a connection, as the timeline for Twisted Timbers is earlier than that of Mystic Timbers.
  20. Here's the full facts sheet which lists all the records. I definitely see a trip to Branson in my future... https://sdc.silverdollarcity.com/sitepages/2018/site/ride-facts.pdf
  21. I wouldn't. I've got better things to spend $500 on Sent from my LG G5 using Tapatalk
  22. It looks like Carowinds is getting a Planet Snoopy expansion for next year. They've been dropping clues using the hashtag "SnoopyPresents2018" on Twitter the past few days... https://twitter.com/hashtag/SnoopyPresents2018?src=hash
  23. Possibly, but that would require a lot of testing during the off-season and there's no guarantee that would work at all, especially given the age of Vortex.
  24. The dreaded "EX0" error is back when I try to view The Vortex Poll topic.
  25. Waldameer is adding a Zamperla balloon ride and ProSlides Cannonball 30 tube slide for 2018: http://www.goerie.com/news/20170813/erie-park-to-open-two-new-rides-in-2018 I didn't spend any time in the water park when I was at Waldameer last year, but it seemed to be quite popular, and both attractions should be a great addition to the park.
