  1. I don't think it's over-rated at all. It's still considered to be one of the best wooden coasters in the country, and I never get tired of it. If any ride is over-rated, it's Adventure Express...
  2. The latest issue of the Cincinnati edition of AAA's Journeys magazine includes an article about several Ohio theme parks (Cedar Point, PKI, Geauga Lake, Kalahari Waterpark Resort (in Sandusky apparently) and the Beach). There are a couple of photos along with this article, one being of Cedar Point, and one credited as being Tomb Raider The Ride at PKI. However, the Tomb Raider The Ride shown in that picture is actually the one at Paramount's Canada's Wonderland (figured that out using Google's image search), which can be seen at http://www.coasterimage.com/pictures/canad...lercoasters.htm. My
  3. Definitely apply online. That way they'll have everything together when you get there and you'll have less paperwork to fill out.
  4. So couldn't PTC build custom trains for it then?
  5. I live about 30 minutes away (10 minutes north of Downtown in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Northside), so I wouldn't stay there either.
  6. The Eagles were a lot of fun, and they should have left them in. There's still plenty of room for them over next to IJST.
  7. I've done front seat on both rides this year, and still like The Beast better. SOB is a rough ride, but I think that only adds to the experience.
  8. I'm doing it, and haven't found it all that hard. The most important part is to try to schedule your work week around your school schedule so you still have time to do homework.
  9. I think they're about the same.
  10. That should give Caribbean Cove in Indianapolis some great competition...
  11. It would have been busier on Sunday if it hand't been Mother's Day. It should be interesting to see what kind of a turnout we get on Friday evening. Also, what all is involved with these Math/Science Day events? I'm working 3:45-Close on Friday...
  12. Coney Mall, because it's home to so many great classic rides - The Racer, Scrambler, Shake Rattle and Roll, Monster, Zephyr...
  13. I think a PKI museum would be a lot of fun, but it would be even better if it had some of the history of Coney Island as well. It would definitely be interesting to know what rides were where and when they were taken out (and why), etc.
  14. Ooo... Old PKI photos! I vaguely remember that Big Slide. When was that taken out? (sorry for being off topic).
  15. I haven't had too much of a chance to explore all of the forgottenoh website yet, but the section on the old Peters Cartridge Company building is quite fascinating.
  16. The paint job looks terrible compared to the classic design that was on them before they got sent to Carowinds. The best part was when I rode with my sister, who's 2 years younger than me. As we swung around, I'd purposely steer away from the direction we were travelling in, causing us to swing outward and narrowly avoid smacking into nearby trees, then swooping back inward and narrowly avoiding crashing into the ground. I had a blast, although my sister didn't think it was too funny
  17. As if PKI really needs another bungee-related Pay-for-play ride. Also, they're putting in some sort of a bowling game next to one of the shops in Coney Mall...
  18. HB because it's fun watching the kids have a blast.

    2006 Rumors

    The reason is it's the closest amusement park for a lot of people. Next closest park to PKI (from "Cincinnati, Ohio", using Google Maps): Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom (Louisville) - 2 hours Holiday World (Santa Clause, Indiana) - 3 hours Indiana Beach (Monticello, Indiana) - 3.5 hours Cedar Point - 3.5 to 4 hours Erieview Park (Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio) - 4 hours Geauga Lake - 4 hours Six Flags Great America (Gurnee, Illinois) - 6 hours Six Flags St. Louis - 6 hours Paramount's Kings Dominion - 9 hours Busch Gardens Williamsburg - 10 hours And yes, Cincinnati is in a grea

    2006 Rumors

    I sincerely doubt they'll get rid of Hanna-Barbera Land, especially if they hope to keep getting the "Best Kids Area" award that they've gotten the past 4 years...
  21. What are some of the most annoying habits you've seen among other park guests? While I can think of several, the most annoying one to me is the basketball bouncing. People win basketballs, and then proceed to walk around the park and bounce them all the time. I get so tired of nearly tripping over basketballs because they either got away from the person who was bouncing them or the person bounced it in my path as I was walking by. The second most annoying one would be large women wearing Spandex - last year (I'm not making this up), I saw a rather large lady walking by in a skin-tight shirt an
  22. You will need a program that supports RAR archives, such as WinRAR or UltimateZIP
  23. How do you lose your hat on that ride?
  24. 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.
