  1. I for one am looking forward to riding those gliders again. I had great fun snapping them when they were at Kings Island.
  2. I live about 10 minutes from where Chester Park was, and there's nothing left of it save for a street. The only real reference to it is the name of the Cincinnati Water Works complex that occupies part of the former Chester Park site (it's known as the Chester Park campus). There was another topic about Ludlow Lagoon a while back:
  3. What's so bad about it? I've only stayed at the one in Mason (a few times for KIC holiday events) and thought it was a great place. I'm sure it would be more enjoyable if you had kids, but it was still a fun experience.
  4. Holiday World and Hersheypark still have them. I believe Knoebels does to some extent as well.
  5. Here's more information directly from Kentucky Kingdom, courtesy of the Koaster Kids Facebook page...
  6. It's kind of hard to do a Halloween event when your park is themed to holidays. I don't think it has anything to do with location, as Knoebels does a Halloween event and they're even more "middle of nowhere" than Holiday World is.
  7. Lots of changes coming to Holiday World next year... In addition, according to NewsPlusNotes: - New “Kids World” event for five weekends starting in mid-August - On-ride photos for Gobbler Getaway dark ride - Candy Cornucopia store and Dippin’ Dots Sundae Shoppe in the Thanksgiving section - Track improvements for The Voyage, the world’s second-longest wooden roller coaster - Additional Cabanas
  8. I might have to make a trip back to HP in the coming years to see this. This is going to drastically change the entrance to HP, but it's for the good considering what a major park they are at this point.
  9. I think this will be a great addition to the park, though I am wondering where exactly they're going to put it. Maybe in the back of the park next to their Larson Looper?
  10. They're just doing that because KI did it. Holiday World did "#whatsintheshack" for HoliWood Nights this year (themed to Caddyshack this time) and it was nothing more than a marketing gimmick.
  11. There is an award for Best Children's Park. Idlewild has won it 9 years straight.
  12. Wildwood Grove isn't specifically a kid's area though
  13. At the rate things are going I could see KI getting that in 2020
  14. Not that this should surprise anyone, but KI has once again won the Golden Ticket Award for Best Kids' Area.
  15. Minor improvements are just as good as anything, and not all that surprising considering the number of improvements made this season.
  16. I'm not sure how accurate this is, but queue-times.com is currently reporting waits of 90 minutes for SV, Valravn and Millennium Force, 75 minutes for Maverick and 60 minutes for Dragster.
  17. Looks like late March. Their opening day this year was March 24th.
  18. I've seen a roaming band around KI a couple of times the past few seasons, but not that frequently.
  19. Fox 8 Cleveland says that it will be included with park admission, but I have no idea where they got that info. https://fox8.com/2018/08/21/cedar-point-announces-forbidden-frontier-on-adventure-island-coming-next-summer/
  20. Most, if not all, of the songs played in Rivertown are from a series of bluegrass tribute albums called Pickin' On. You can see the entire collection here.
  21. While we were getting lunch at Coney Smokehouse today a group of guests with souvenir cups in hand was hanging around outside the exit. As soon as we opened the door to head out after getting our food, they squeezed past us into the restaurant. I told them "This isn't an entrance" and they looked at me like I was crazy. Apparently walking through the line to get your souvenir cup refilled is too hard.
  22. Unfortunately the company that made the classic antique cars found at many parks (likely including the ones that were at KI) isn't in business anymore, but a company in Canada called Gould Manufacturing still makes them...
