  1. The latest in Coaster Studios' hilarious "Coaster Parody" series...
  2. I haven't seen that anywhere in the park this year. My guess is it wasn't a big seller. I never saw many people at what used to be Snake Pit when they were selling it.
  3. My sister and I saw one way out on the east side of town somewhere last month as well, though I don't remember where (it was out along Beechmont as I recall).
  4. Since I finally had the day off for the 4th for the first time in years, I decided I was long overdue for a return trip to Stricker's Grove. My sister and brother-in-law decided to join me as well. We got up there probably around 3 or 3:30. Even though my niece can't ride very much and my brother-in-law isn't much of a rides person, we decided to spring for rides wristbands for them as well. We all had a great time and the fireworks were great for being a small show at a family-owned park. Despite the large crowds we still got rides on everything except the scooters (ran out of time) and Torna
  5. I'd like to see a Super Round Up in that spot, if anyone even still makes those Sent from my LG-H820 using Tapatalk
  6. @TheRickster - It's definitely worth the drive. They've got a great collection of rides and it's a fun atmosphere (actual themed areas) with something for everyone. Also, don't discount the waterpark. I'm not a big waterpark person either and easily spent the better part of 6 hours there when I first visited the park a few years ago. Granted, it was 95 that day, but even so, I thoroughly enjoyed it and the water coasters are a must. @Rallyomalley I also highly recommend Plymouth Rock Cafe. It's not the cheapest place in the park, but the food is delicious and it's a great value for what y
  7. We did have a good couple of days despite getting to the park later than we'd hoped both days and not getting to ride as much as we'd wanted.
  8. The past two days (Tuesday and Wednesday), my sister and I took advantage of Kentucky Kingdom's coaster club discount deal (admission and free drinks for two consecutive days for $19.95) and made two day trips to KK. Although we didn't get to the park as early as we had liked either day, we still had fun and got rides on the three good coasters (one ride on T3 last year was enough for both of us, and Roller Skater is fun but nothing special). Yesterday we got to the park a little after 2:30 and spent the better part of an hour hitting rides in King Louie's Playland with my niece (we rode
  9. My sister and I are planning a return trip or two this summer so hopefully it'll be open next time we visit. Sent from my LG-H820 using Tapatalk
  10. I haven't gotten a chance to see it yet - the only two times I've been to the park since the show started this year have been on Wednesdays, and this past Wednesday was particularly annoying because they kept doing in-park announcements for the show even though it doesn't run on Wednesday.
  11. What's going on with The Scream Machine? I was at the park yesterday for my brother-in-law's company picnic and noticed that the ride had been partially disassembled.
  12. Is Deluge at Hurricane Bay ever open? I visited yesterday and it was closed. It was also closed when I visited a year ago. Maybe it's just bad luck? On a more positive note, my niece and I got a zen ride on Sun and Moon yesterday...
  13. Report: Latest incident due to broken wheel: http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2017/05/30/jokers-jinx-incident-report/
  14. Well over 20, possibly even 30-something. We went once a year for a long time when I was a kid and I've had a pass every year since 2009.
  15. Even when that place was a Dippin Dots stand it was rarely open. I'm not sure why it isn't open more often.
  16. My sister is at the park right now and said Soak City is currently closed. Anyone know what's going on?
  17. I used an app on my phone called SoundHound to identify it Sent from my LG-H820 using Tapatalk
  18. I saw it happen first-hand, but it happened so fast I don't have all the details. I'm not sure what started it - they were part of a group of kids/teens running around near the Action Zone entrance. I have no idea what started it, but someone flung a half-empty bottle of water at another person (presumably a friend of theirs?), who flung it back at the first person. More food was thrown after that, including ice cream. It was all over within a minute but I'm assuming someone from Panda Express called security about it as a security guard and KI Park Police officer showed up a few minutes later
  19. It appears that the train soundtrack has changed this year. I heard the following songs today: "Ghost Riders In The Sky" by The Outlaws "Theme From The Magnificent Seven" by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra "Rocky Top" by The Osborne Brothers "Surfin Safari" by The Beach Boys Another couple songs that I was unable to identify In addition, the end of the ride is now tied in to Mystic Timbers (I won't spoil it beyond that for those who haven't experienced it yet).
  20. I really need to make it out to that park this year given that it's only 3 hours from me. Maybe I'll do a late-season trip like I was planning to do last year.
  21. I rode King Kobra several times. It was a regular for my dad and I on family visits to the park as a kid. My only visit to Kentucky Kingdom as a kid came one year before Chang opened and I never made it back down there again before last year.
  22. The engineers wear typical train engineer outfits - overalls and matching caps.
  23. Found a minor issue with polls... When I chose the appropriate options in a poll and clicked the button to vote, the poll disappeared entirely instead of just refreshing to show the results. I had to refresh the page to get it back.
  24. Some of the songs I heard at KI today: A cover version of Michael W. Smith's "Friends" "We Are The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" by Relient K "Fireflies" by Owl City "Uprising" by Muse
  25. That's My Coke Rewards, a reward program which is being discontinued (it goes away for good at the end of June). On the topic of new things, Zephyr got new seats this year. Instead of the small wicker seats with cushions, they're now larger black plastic seats. They're more comfortable and seem to be roomier. I didn't get a picture of them though as I was in a hurry (last ride before I had to leave for work).
