  1. Anyone at the park? Cwt?
  2. wow .... trying not to make this a one word post.
  3. The same thing happened to me earlier this year for Jurassic Park River Adventure. On the website it said it would be closed the following month for 2 weeks. However when we got there it was closed and was closed every day for the 3 days we were there. One of my favorite rides anywhere since I was very little and bringing someone who had never been to Universal before, I was quite upset myself.
  4. I am excited to see what they do next year.
  5. I am one of the only people I know that thoroughly enjoys Disaster. I like the Fast and Furious movies (as of late at least) but I wish they would of taken out something else, like Twister (I realize that's a small location, still). Its bitter sweet, so long as they make the ride good unlike that junk in California. I am just happy I took a trip there earlier this year and was able to ride it before the removal. So long Frank Kincaid...
  6. Although the premise of the idea is good Pyro, I do not see it coming to fruition because of the circumstances already listed out in the articles above.
  7. I sort of like post-apocalyptic. Not to say I like seeing an abandoned area that use to house a great park.
  8. TMNT SHELL SHOCK at Mall of America is amazing. Its basically a replica of that in turtles theme.
  9. What doesn't make sense to me is if they are removing the train why did Don post on YouTube just 3 months ago a video about the train? Here is the description for that video below. Many people today have never been on a train. And still fewer people have been on a real steam train. That’s why Kings Island’s railroad appeals to guests of all ages. Kings Island’s locomotives have been at the park since it opened in 1972 and are scale replicas of the famous 1800’s locomotive known as The General, which was the subject of the Great Locomotive Chase of the American Civil War. Although Kings Island’s engines are fired by propane rather than coal, the 400-gallon boilers on each engine provide plenty of capacity to make them real authentic steam-spitting locomotives. Each of the two engines – Blue No. 12 and Green No. 19 – pulls six coaches and when both trains are filled to capacity, 960 guests can be on the rail at one time. Soon after the trains pull out of the “old” depot on the 36-inch gauge track, passengers pass under the first drop of the Diamondback roller coaster and over a 65-foot natural ravine on a steel and wood trestle. The track winds through several fields, stopping at the Soak City Waterpark. After dropping off and picking up guests at the 33-acre waterpark, the trains then loop around through woods and back into the depot. A round trip on the train covers 1-1/4 miles of track. The Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad has given more than 52 million rides since 1972, the second-most in the park’s 43-year history. It’s record-year was 1973, when 2,378,749 rides were given.

  11. Brown track has shown up at Cedar Point near Breakers Express.
  12. You are correct well spotted.
  13. Regardless of his intentions or knowledge of the impending announcement, I find his choice of words (particularly those highlighted in red) interesting. I imagine they were chosen with care. A number of things come to mind, so I will share some links, one of which is the CF Capital Investment Strategy from the Cedar Point Analyst Day (as posted earlier by Oldschool75). Note that at least one interactive dark ride/digital experience and at least one coaster rework are on tap for 2016. http://www.wlwt.com/news/cedar-fair-to-test-virtual-reality-on-roller-coaster/34548762 http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/08/18/93c170c8d8cd81aabdfd7565c0757636.jpg This is a good theory and makes sense of what BoddaH1994 has said. However, Don said it is something that has been experienced by nearly everyone since 1972. That removes the action theater from the equation and thus brings us to a difficult stalemate. My original thinking is a entrance reboot and removal of the theater. That brings into question though is the theater in that bad of shape? I think not, so that doesn't make much sense so I am throwing at least the latter of that theory out. So what are we left with? There is a stake over in the gardens, but I have only seen one. What is the point of one stake in the gardens if they are planning on doing something big over there? This is a tough one. Don, could we have some flower pots please?
  14. I always knew the industry designed coasters to fit me specifically like if I was going to get a tux fitted. I always knew they ranked me as the standard of coaster comfort.
  15. How are the lines today? Debating going for 3 hours after work.

  17. A coaster profile I follow on Instragram seems to have found a "leak" of the new water park expansion. If it happens to be true I am going to be so disappointed. What an awful reason to take out a coaster (2 actually). Absolutely terrible. \ * I also see this was posted in the other thread but a more detailed version. Whoops.
  18. I think this will be a great addition for them. So many places are becoming a hot spot for my coveted vacation planning. This is becoming more difficult by the day, and I don't mean that as a bad thing either.

  20. My sources have confirmed that this is now a Diversion. Sourced are very legitimate. The petting zoo guy told me all the deets.
