  1. 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.
  2. Ooo... Old PKI photos! I vaguely remember that Big Slide. When was that taken out? (sorry for being off topic).
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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...
  6. HB because it's fun watching the kids have a blast.

    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...
  9. 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
  10. You will need a program that supports RAR archives, such as WinRAR or UltimateZIP
  11. How do you lose your hat on that ride?
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. No problem. I'm an expert at finding info with Google
  16. It's been several years since I rode Space Mountain, but it was a lot of fun as I recall.
  17. Is this the one you're talking about?
  18. 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...
  20. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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 informat
  24. 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 W
