  1. Yeah, it is a shame, especially considering that there aren't any other campgrounds in the immediate area (Sharon Woods doesn't have one). Ceaser's Creek State Park has a campground, but that's a good half hour (or more) north of King's Island.
  2. I lost a hat on Delirium last year. It was one of those one-size-fits-all hats with a velcro strap, and I had it on as tight as I could get it. It landed in the grassy area between Delirium and Days of Thunder Raceway. My sister and I asked a guy working at Days of Thunder if we could climb the fence to get it (stupid question of course), and were told we'd have to get security. It wasn't that big of a deal to me since I already had two other Bearcats hats and it wasn't my best hat, so I just decided to live without it. Of course, this year I have to wonder why I wasn't told to fill out a lost-and-found card or anything like that.
  3. It was Double Ride Night last night, although I wouldn't think that would apply to IJST because of the number of people who would want to ride it.
  4. No problem. I'm an expert at finding info with Google

    New area idea!

    It's been several years since I rode Space Mountain, but it was a lot of fun as I recall.
  6. Is this the one you're talking about?
  7. It wasn't really that busy in HB either. I got sent home at 8 because they didn't need me anymore. I spent a good 10 or 15 minutes watching IJST before I left, and even considered riding it, but decided not to because I didn't want to wait (good thing too - within 30 minutes it was raining pretty good). I think it will be busier tomorrow and Sunday. The busiest I've seen it so far was a couple weekends ago when Anthem Blue Cross was out there. I'd love to see it that busy again. Makes things more fun.

    2006 Rumors

    I'm wondering what's going on over in Coney Mall now. I was over that way after I got off work at 8 (watching IJST), and suddenly there's this mysterious steel sphere structure over by Fast Pitch were Flight Trainer was...
  9. My supervisors certainly don't encourage slowness, and they do encourage us to be friendly and everything. I'm trying my best to be friendly

    cedar fair

    No, because then they'd have to re-name everything and a lot of the paramount themeing would probably be lost.
  11. We're definitely going to be busy this weekend... Other things going on: Music In The Parks (Saturday) Music Showcase Festival (Saturday) Job Fair (Saturday & Sunday) All that combined with the IJST Technical Preview is going to really bring people out to the park.
  12. I would like to see an interactive park map on the site. Visitors could click on a ride/restaurant and get detailed info on it... For rides: Ride name (along with any other common names for that ride) When it was put in Who built it Ride capacity Height requirements Any other interesting details you want to add For restaurants: A menu listing all the items the restaurant sells and how much each item is. The best way I can think of to do this would be to use Flash (although I don't know anything about it, so I can't help). Currently, only a few rides have detailed information listed, and there isn't anything listing the height requirements for the rides. An interactive park map on the website would be a great feature because guests would know what to expect before they visited. Also, I would love to see the return of costumed characters wandering through the park during the day, in addition to the current scheduled "meet and greet" things. I remember how much fun it was to "meet" Yogi Bear and other Hanna-Barbera characters when I was little, and I'm sure that it would be a lot of fun for kids today as well.
  13. No it isn't... It might be based on Giant Top Spin, but it's not the same ride. Also, a few minor editorial comments regarding my last post. Six Flags no longer owns the park I was referring to (Six Flags Worlds of Adventure). The park is now owned by CedarFair LP (same group that owns Cedar Point) and is called Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom. The ride I was referring to is now called Texas Twister. Player - I was going by what was on Huss' site, and didn't realize that Six Flags no longer owned that park. They do however have a small water park in the Columbus area (Six Flags Wyandot Lake).
  14. I've never been to The Beach, but I did go to the now-defunct Surf Cincinnati once, right before it closed... The Beach looks really cool though.

    New area idea!

    Re-theming Rivertown wouldn't work real well because they'd have to rip out a lot of buildings and re-theme Whitewater Canyon, which is one of the most popular water rides in the park. Personally, I'd like to see them do something with the "ghost town" along the train route between Rivertown and Boomerang Bay.

    Campground

    Sorry... I should have thought about that. As a Support Specialist for SMF, I'm always reminding people to use the board's "search" feature before posting, so I should know better.
  17. I think the problem with Magilla Gorilla's Grill is that it was right next to Busytown Grill, which serves a lot of the same stuff (although they've got a bigger selection). I don't know much about International Restaurant, although I have always wondered what they use that space for if there's not a restaurant there. I'm sure you get a great view from up there.
  18. How about "Other" or "None of the above"? Personally, I'd like to see Huss' Giant Top Spin ride. Their 2 most recent rides at PKI (Delirium and Tomb Raider: The Ride) have been a huge success, and this looks like a really fun ride. It would also give us another way to compete with Six Flags in Aurora, Ohio (they've got the regular "Top Spin" (called The Tornado))
  19. It's still pretty popular, but it's in a weird spot, and with Son of Beast so close, I think many people just forget that it's there.
  20. I'll be there because I have to work then. Sounds like it's going to be busy this weekend... Thanks for the heads up
  21. Ok... Found some more info on the ride. The reason I don't remember it is because it was removed in 1995, although the fatality occurred in June of 1991 (just a year after the ride opened).
  22. Interesting... I don't even remember that ride. I'll have to go googling for more info. Thanks
  23. I have noticed the remnants of an old ride back behind where the Fast Pitch game is now in Coney Mall, but have been unable to figure out what was there. My dad doesn't remember what used to be there, and all I can see from the top of the hill on The Racer is a big circular concrete slab with a hole in the middle of it... Anyone know what used to be there and why they didn't do something else with that spot?
  24. When my supervisor was giving us a tour of the park several weeks ago, he said that they were expecting 4- to 5-hour lines for that ride... As much as I want to ride it as soon as it opens, I am not about to stand in line that long...
