  1. I do wish they would have brought back the large cinnamon rolls and pecan rolls that were a staple of the bakery that used to be where french corner is going. That was one of the biggest disappointments when they removed the bakery for the original KI Starbucks.
  2. I didn't see this posted anywhere, and I only looked a few pages back, so pardon me if it is a repeat. Some current and alum members of the Live Entertainment department pulled together a pretty cool message for everyone that enjoys their shows. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUULP1Pm7Bw&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR1zRgxrrXiU8Ph4fKq7NGtd4oSqtQ0WZqDF-Wth1WFXsXlobWc8uXIA1as
  3. There is a bit of it in this video:
  4. So we are packing up for a weekend at Cedar Point soon. Half of us going have Platinum Passes, the other half will be buying tickets with our hotel stay. Here is the question that I hope someone can help with. 1) Their website offers a package with a FL+, Drink Package, Meal Package For The Day, and Fun Pix For the day for about $10 more than the current daily price on the FL+. Considering buying a couple to help with lines and meals for those that don't have season passes. Anyone know if they are different bands for the meals vs FL+? One person that would need the meal plan wouldn't be
  5. We are currently on the 2nd leg of our vacation in Bradenton FL. We find ourselves with a free day this coming up Saturday. We are considering a trip to USF for the day, as our daughter is dying to see Harry Potter world. Question for the group, how successful could we be in seeing as much as possible with a 2-park express ticket on the first week of August. I get concerned shelling out that type of cash and not getting to see as much as possible. Never having an express pass there, I am not sure what to expect. Any help is appreciated.
  6. Parade at KD is 8 as well, if I am not mistaken. However, the sunset is about 40 min earlier than Cincinnati there.
  7. There are 9 floats. I think the weather and possibly some mechanical issues kept them out at least one night. However they all made the run I saw last night.
  8. In the late 90's and early 2000's that theatre played a few different Scooby shows and even a Jetson Show. While the names have escaped my memory at this point, I do remember that one was themed to Scooby's birthday celebration. These shows in particular used to rewrite lyrics to songs to fit the show. I can distinctly remember versions of Mmmbop (Moon Bop (Jetsons Show)), Celebration, and Talking About My Generation. It also used to hold shows for the original kids Halloween event, including a Beetlejuice magic show. I believe the theatre was closed somewhere between 2004-2006, but I d
  9. We are considering taking the family to GWL this weekend. I see many room types are already sold out for the days we are looking at. I was curious, what are normal waits like when the resort is busy for the slides? Also, any must-do's or suggestions for a 10 yr old? Thanks in advance!
  10. No, the first year, and Pirate Jack, were both from Sudden Impact! and Lynton Harris. The Oak Island guys were around during the Sleepy Hallow maze (in the tent where the old dolphin show was), and also the Haunt in the old mining company building, which I can't remember the name of.
  11. I think the company you are speaking of is Oak Island Productions. They aren't involved in Haunt at Kings Island, nor have been in a while....
  12. Thanks for the memories. My first job at the park!
  13. If I thought a show was so bad the first 3 times, I wouldn't go back, let alone 2 more times. Why waste 50 minutes of your time In the park if it is that bad? What is so bad? I saw it. The girls costumes are no worse then old KI shows in the 80's and 90's. His magic aren't thembiggest of tricks, but I thought! With the exception of the balloon trick, that it was fine. Maybe I just have a bit more tolerance.
  14. I have had little problems with my Verizon iPhone. I have heard lots of complaints about AT&T in the park. I heard over the weekend that they have added a temporary tower in the maintenance area by the picnic grove, but not sure who's network that is.
  15. CoastersRZ, what is going on with the water slide that was SBNO last season? Has it been closed because of the success of the Twister slides?
  16. Look Familiar? This was added this week to the exterior of EnterTRAINment Junction. http://imgur.com/CIrP8
  17. The thing that I think could help Kings Island and all the parks would be to start some type of Haunt Attraction Rotation. The problem that I have with most of Haunt is the attractions that have basically been the same for a long period of time. Some of these attractions could be shipped to another park, refurbished, and put out as a new product. Yes, the maze will have to be altered for building size/layout, but could be done very easily. In fact , I think a good suggestion would be for Knott's to build a building to start a new "traveling" maze each year. The host it the first year, an
  18. They also have a nice Halloween maze and a fun Halloween thing for the kids......They do some neat events.
  19. The Freezer....first year, under the tower. It was a real maze. I followed a group in there lost for 35 minutes one night.....
  20. ^They haven't done the tower for a few years now. You are probably looking at a 13-17 minute show at the park is my guess. This is typical of what has been done the past couple of years. Still should be a good show, BUT nothing like the Nights of Fire days.
  21. It has been years since I last was at Coney Island. My years of working at Kings Island made it difficult to visit, even though it is less than 5 miles from my house. Last year my wife, daughter, and mom bought season passes to enjoy Sunlite Pool. They begged and begged me to get one, now that I have a much more "normal" work schedule. While I didn't accept last year, this year I decided it was time to try it. Fast forward to today, our first visit of the year. We left home with just enough time to arrive, park, and walk into Sunlite pool as it opened. We found a nice sunny spot with s
  22. ^That's funny, because I was also at the park that day with my younger brother for the Sharon, Lois, and Bram concert at T-Wolf. We were in the Paramount Theatre(? Or was it the American Heritage then, anyways....) when the weather hit and actually knocked out power in the theatre for a few seconds. After a quick phone call they went on with the show, but it was eerie when we went outside and nothing was running yet. I thought I remember hearing on the news that night, that there was a very weak tornado that hit near the park, but I wasn't sure, and since I couldn't find any more informati
  23. But what about someone who bought a general admission ticket? What happens when theirs washes off? If they are worried about fraud with season pass holders, you have to assume they are with GP as well. EDIT: Sorry....this question was posted by someone else while I was writing....
  24. What is the normal turnaround to get something back from Coney? We sent a check in and a form for renewal back in December and haven't heard a peep! But this is our first time renewing our passes, so I'm not sure on the process.
  25. I agree. I'm not against it. I was just pointing out that the cancellation of SPPD has NOTHING to do with money or they wouldn't be entertaining the idea of ERT every day. Sorry for any confusion
