  1. Waldameer is a great park all around. Make sure to do the dark rides (Whacky Shack and Pirate's Cove) in addition to the coasters. They also have a nice selection of classic flats if you have time.
  2. I recommend stopping at Sara's while in Erie. It's right up the road from Waldameer and is a really fun diner/tourist trap type place with good food. If you have time, Presque Isle State Park (also right up the road from Waldameer and Sara's) is worth a trip. I didn't venture out to Gull Point because I was being bombarded with bugs on the trail, but there's a lighthouse and a lot of other stuff to see/do there (beach, picturesque lake views, etc.)
  3. To be fair, someone did record a Snoopy-themed parody of a Snoop Dogg song a while back:
  4. Direct link that doesn't go through a couple of Google redirects: https://www.wblzmedia.com/2018/06/16/kings-island-gravity-is-an-experience-you-cant-miss-at-the-park/
  5. Given the desing of the doghouse I'd guess it belongs to Snoopy's brother Marbles. Sent from my Galaxy S9 using Tapatalk

  7. Relatively minor incident but still something you don't expect to see. https://www.wral.com/bumper-car-catches-fire-at-carowinds-park/17605410/
  8. When I was riding Great Pumpkin Coaster with my niece earlier, a kid in front of us was saying that GPC is a "mini Banshee".
  9. I'm staying at the Red Roof Inn near the park and it's the same there too. Sent from my Galaxy S9 using Tapatalk
  10. The Indy Star decided to write an article comparing KI to Holiday World... https://www.indystar.com/story/entertainment/2018/05/29/heres-how-kings-island-compares-holiday-world-indiana/633416002/
  11. Both water coasters have cubbies in the queue for your stuff as I recall Sent from my Galaxy S9 using Tapatalk
  12. Assuming I'm not missing anything... Americana Beech Bend Camden Park Cedar Point Coney Island DelGrosso's Dorney Holiday World Kentucky Kingdom Kings Island Knoebel's Magic Kingdom Memphis Kiddie Park New Conneaut Lake Park Stricker's Grove Waldameer
  13. I live about 10 minutes or so from downtown Cincinnati, a few miles from where I-74 and I-75 meet. I can typically make it to the park in about 30 minutes depending on traffic
  14. Like usual, Gold Passes have been extended again this year, but until July 4th this time instead of the usual week or so that they usually extend the sale for. Pass sales must be way down this year.
  15. Weather permitting I'll be riding it when I visit next month - I typically spend the day at Coney on my birthday and plan to do so again this year as well. Looking forward to seeing all the changes.
  16. Here's a photo of the damage from the European Coaster Club via GOCC:
  17. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/breaking-europark-fire-massive-blaze-12602519 According to the Facebook page Cupcakes and Coasters, Michael Mack has confirmed that there are no injuries, but the Pirates attraction and the Norway section have been completely destroyed. https://www.facebook.com/cupcakesandcoasters/posts/2166298656935981
  18. Sounds good to me! Maybe we can try to take over a coaster train or two as well. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  19. For future reference, you can go to the Google Maps website and get directions that take into account when you're planning to leave or want to arrive at your destination - that will give you the typical travel times for the date/time you chose and, if you choose when you want to arrive, recommend when you need to leave in order to get to your destination on time.
  20. I don't need any more shirts but this will be a nice addition to my collection of KIC tees (I have the previous one that was offered as well as the two from 2009) Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  21. They may have. I was only over that way for a short time and it was dark by then. On an unrelated note, somehow my pass got renewed as a junior/senior pass instead of a regular pass. Had to go to the sales window and pay $59 to get that fixed, and I have to go to Guest Services tomorrow to get my dining plan straightened out.
  22. I didn't see much of the park tonight, having spent most of my time in Planet Snoopy, but I did notice a few other things not mentioned here so far: Tower Gardens is no longer a designated smoking area The Coca-Cola building in Coney Mall has been renovated - there's more room inside now and there are 6 Freestyle machines instead of 4 Several other general improvements in Coney Mall - a few new planters and seating areas along the midway
  23. Didn't Timberwolf initially have a separate entrance from outside the park allowing you to attend concerts there without requiring park admission?
  24. Ah. Depending on your definition of a hit, there's always "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls (#48 in 1982).
  25. Did someone say bad songs from the 80s? I leave you with this.
