  1. Deilirium will probably be down for a while... (I talked to a Delirium associate who got sent to West Pie on Sunday). I would love to ride SlingShot, but am not willing to pay any more than about $5 to do so...
  2. Last year I went 6 or 7 times. Now that I'm working there, I plan to be out there as often as possible. I've already been there at least 10 times this year.
  3. I was there for one of the nights last year and enjoyed it. I was watching from the area near the bumper cars along what is now Italian Job Stunt Track there in Coney Mall. The vantage point was great, but the timing was horrible. They'd do something over near the tower, and I'd no sooner turn to see that and they'd shoot something off from a different section of the park which was in the opposite direction. I was also disappointed at the tower display - on TV they made it look like they were going to light up the entire tower all at once, but they only did a little at a time, and it never las
  4. Co-op and internships are very similar. The major difference is that you don't always get paid for internships.
  5. I was wondering where it was. I figured it was either on top of the Action FX Theater or on top of Flight of Fear. It's a great location.
  6. The reason so much was closed on Tuesday is that many of the associates are students and had school. Most of the area high schools and colleges let out for the summer sometime during the first two weeks of June, so if you come back during the week later on during the summer, you should find more open. I hope you come back to PKI some time soon.
  7. I'm not a coffee drinker either. However, if their Italian sodas aren't too expensive, I might stop by ocasionally and get one...
  8. I can't go. I have to work all day that day. However, I will be watching in case you happen to pass through HB.
  9. There were apparently several double rainbows in the area then. Channel 9 had a picture of one from Blue Ash.
  10. Yeah, they did a great job repainting the tower.
  11. Boomerang Bay is really close to HB. The picnic grove seperates the two, and there's not much room for expansion in that direction.
  12. Here's a couple of pictures of last Friday's double-rainbow at PKI that I found while browsing the web... Enjoy! http://www.flickr.com/photos/mindmenagerie/16141075 http://www.flickr.com/photos/mindmenagerie/16141077
  13. This is more of an FYI than a rule, but it's something that many people would love to know... When walking past Green Slime Zone in Nick Central, do not stand around to see what's going on, unless you don't mind getting drenched. You do not have much time to get at least 6 feet away from the green tower structure before you will get drenched. I can't tell you how many times I've seen innocent guests meander by just in time to get soaked. While it's rather amusing for those who knew what was coming, I'm sure the guests themselves didn't find it quite as enjoyable.
  14. PKIworker - the only reason I worded it that way is because of the rule about not saying stuff that wouldn't be known to the public otherwise. The website where I got that information is not available to the general public (to my knowledge anyway), so I did not wish to say who it was. I figured PKI would have given more information to the public if they had wanted to, and was not trying to make it look like there was something really secret about this. On a related note, what exactly is DIAA? I couldn't find any information about them online (most of my searching just turned up results relat
  15. This has nothing to do with IJST. As the site says, it's a private company event - meaning a private event for a local company. This company happens to be quite well known and has offices in the Mason area, although the company's headquarters are not located here. That's all I will say about it.
  16. I was also there on Sunday (of course most of the time I was working)... When I got there shortly before 1, I wanted to do something quick before hitting the School of Rock Show (which was excellent), so I decided to go to the top of Eiffel Tower, because it had been so long since I'd been up there. Great view as always. After the School of Rock show was over, I decided to go see how many rides I could cram in to the next 2 hours (I had to be at work at 3:45). Went over to Action Zone, and was going to ride Son of Beast, but it was closed. One of the associates at the front of the line sai
  17. Reclaimer - I agree with you about that guy. I think PKI is smart to do this. Otherwise they'd have tons of people complaining that they spent 5 or 6 hours standing in line and never got to ride it, and how they could have been riding other rides instead, etc.
  18. I also said 4. Whoever said "1" should be banned from the board

  20. Yes, there was a big rainbow at the entrance to HB many years ago. Who knows whatever happened to that.
  21. That's great I love the "comments" from Fred...
  22. Official employee calendar says it's the 5th.
