The employees VS gold pass holders who will win?
The Pass holders will win every time. Those perks are there as a selling point. They do not offer them out of the kindness of there hearts they do it so people will buy a pass early thus making more money early on.
If the customers aren't happy (from what I heard about april 11th alot were not) Then the park suffers. If they gave same old crap every year no one would buy it. Before gold pass it was a coupon book ect ect. PKI isn't alone in the perks catagory
My sixflags pass came with a great looking calander and a crapload of coupons a bring a friend free one also.
Cedar Points joe cool club gives you early ride time as well.
If PKI gave up there gold pass benifts then they would loose money. If they do not keep the locals comming back they will loose cash. Theres Really not a whole lot to do during a summer around here. See a reds game a concert or 2 the beach maybe a movie or 400.
The locals do keep the park going and if you treat them bad then they don't come back. April 11th was a very unlike PKI day and many people base the season on the 1st visits of the year.
Dragonlord Your post saying the park owes you nothing is wrong. The park owes the Guests everything cause without them there is no PKI. The park should feel as if its your own personal playground.
According to a manager who will remain nameless
PKI lives and dies on how its reviewed and how people see the park.(this was last year when i got *****ed at for somthing i didnt do) The park only does it when they HAVE to not to screw with the guests.
Customers can whine if there not happy about somthing. How else is the park going to know. Goto Mejiers they do have the I am better than you attitude on there signs.
not withstanding I enjoyed april 11th and had a great time I just thought I would make some points. Now back to my random and funny self.
Yes She would! If we see a camera if its small enough they will ask you to put it away before we restart the ride(every coaster has cameras and they can zoom in). If its a large video camera they WILL send a OP up to the lift to retrive it. You can be kicked out of the park for having a camera on the ride. Its up to the ride ops if they want to call security or not.I have no doubt that you would A: get fired on the spot
or B: get a sevre talking to. if any employee did that.
Wrong and Wrong
Ride Ops would not be fired noe would a manager even bother with you of your camera was taken away. If you violate policys you forfit your purchase of ticket/season pass. Its unsafe and it should not be done. Plus its a ohio law too.
Depending on the Op you may get a warning. You may have security there to escort you off. Leave the on ride to the discovery channel.
Yeah big cool dude who works at skyfler they fit me just fine. much more liberal
You could be the one that drives weird al Finally mad! CRAP TIME HAS BEEN ALTERED!
I attempted to do a bill and ted spoof and Matrix in one. The next one will be coherant.
what did you do from 6-9:44 there yogi?
showing up 3 hours early is odd!
This is all in good fun. Please finish all food or drink before reading as you may laff(not really) so hard (yeah right) that you will choke on some chicken. My time machine is Â© myself and I.

Now last week I said I would travel back to 72 and I did.
After looking around for old money I went back to 72 and arrived at opening day at then known Kings Island. There was a parade and everything it was pretty cool. The characters around the park looked like crap though. I paid my admission (5 bucks!) and went in. The place looks really weird without season pass processing and face/off. International street is REALLY diffrent. The walkways arent just crappy astphalt either its really nice. The trees are so tiny and decorated well. The shops have alot of diffrent stuff in them. Salt and pepper shakers. Tea sets and other stuff you would never see today tops the list. No UDF either.
I make my way down into Coney Island. Its like a diffrent area here. The flat rides are diffrent and oh so much fun. The area is a bit small though and not seeing Vortex or action theater is oddity. Time is short So I Board blue racer (whats known as racer backwards today). The buzzbars are a tight fit as usual but OMG this is one sweet ride with no dividers or head rests. The air on there is barnon the best I' have ever had.
I head into rivertown. Not much here. Place is really small theres a canoe ride a walking trail and KMLF and thats about it. Canoe ride sucks people were as lazy in the 70's as today. My shirt struck up some attention though as I was going though the park because well no one has ever heard of Six Flags in these parts. They thought the hang on to your hat was funny. My shorts caught them as odd as well because they were cargo shorts and well there diffrent from what they had. lucky my shoes were not noticed.
I then go to the tower and go up all 3 levels! its really neat on the 2nd observation deck. Boy theres nothing around here either. Lots of farmland and LOTS OF woods.
I then head to the happy land of hana barbara where I ride scooby doo and dark ride.The stuff was weak compared to today I looked really REALLY bored while the others where ooh ahh!
Not much else I can ride here but it looks diffrent again the characters were crappy.
Now onto octoberfest. The ride selection here is amazing. Der kegger spinners ect ect Man this place was diffrent its a hole now.
Its about 6pm now I have one more thing to do before I leave.
SYNCHING SEIBERT JEFFERY GO NOW!

Now I have 1 more mission!
lets go ahead 5 years
Yogi Our lovely escort has been imprsioned for downloading the weird AL MP3 Couch Potato. Not only has he been jailed but this is a offence with a punishemnt thats a bit odd. Today is is when the sentance is carried out!
two men that look exactly the same have him. He has been hooked up to a odd looking machine.
Bots: you have messed with the matrix now we have you!
ROY: NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! HELP ME! *his body is compressed into a data stream. His screams sound like a modem. and then he is placed in the net where he will never die just to go on the net for all etnerinty!
Bots: Get him!|
Neo: Get down
Me: Okay! *gets down to a funy beat which confuses the bots and neo for a min or two while I run*
I believe its time to GO!
What a very weird thing that was.
Neo: You know you can stop the matrix from forming
WHERE THE HECK DID YOU COME FROM!?
Neo: Sorry but make sure this ROY gets a legit copy of that CD. VERY BAD things will happen! If it doesn't!
like the matrix forming right?
SO if he buys the Cd you don't exist
*in bill and ted fashon* return of yogi will win a free copy of the cd on the 20th that I bought for him.
neo: You did nothing NOOOOOOO!!! *sounds like a modem now*
Thats it for this installment of random stuff in time!
If you talk with PR they may let you or provide you with predone footage.
Holding onto a camera is tough on a ride. I did it on roadrunner express down at SFKK and that ride is breaked heavly but its still hard to hold on.
I got 24/25 The rock stop was the one that got me.
This isnt pulling this is hitting them with the tubs.
Hey Aaron said I can do this like 1 time a week.
Remember I travel back to 1972 Time of disco and the opening of KI!

Next Time Back to the past 1972 KI opening day!
shh *hides time travel device behind curtain*
Its a typo sorry!
KC I doubt will ever be togeather again.
Standups aren't popular. A B&M floorless or flyer would be nice.
Arrived at 9:45 and metup with pete No joe no paul no ringo no gerorge. Actually it was Rob Nungster (aka: chucks bro)
Went into the front gate and got ambushed by the Keyhole people. I got my revenge by getting there pic 1st (cute couple).
We made our way to the coney Gold Pass ERT.
recaR was our 1st ride of day. Rob was hohum but racers did very well especally in the cold.
We then made our way to FOF. Now I have been boycotting this ride cause of the crappy service before but today was a total 180
walked on the ride. Got in a good seat. 4.2 and got buckled just fine. I was quite pleased. We road again same seat but GASP BATMAN I COULDNT RIDE! I had proven that the belts are diffrent and the diamond Plating made a diffrence. They asked me to step out and they would get me on the next train. They did just that. It was all good I was happy as a kid in candy store with moms visa.
Next was Dodgems by request of myself. I hadn't ridden. The ride was so SLOW!!!!!!! it was not funny. I made a comment to the op that " i just saw my shadow go by(on a cloudy day and a dark dodgem pit). We found out later that the ride did go down after a few more cycles and was fixed (still slow!).
Flyers were next. We got warmed up on those a bit. Good snaps and PKI landscaping is back as I took some small branches out!
We then made the trek to AZ.
We went to SOB and the ride was down on the lift and the line was being sent back out. We went down to top gun. We saw Jeff Seibert we waved he waved back. Then as we went down past the overpass we saw him again. I ran ahead and snapped a pic. After a 20 min or so wait (if that with rob story telling it goes so quickly). We got on and there he was AGAIN! I took another pic. Jeff Seibert fan page click here.
We hit scooby doo. The car sucked they must of heard us cause our car was closed off after our ride.
Then we ate lunch at the chineese place.
Went back and road SOB and AE went to flyers Met up with FOF and cyndi where I was abused. If the TRTR sup is here WRITE FOF UP!
We road beast togeather. Good ride
then FOF and cyndi had to work so me and Rob went to Flyers again. Then to Scooby again This time there was techs in there and I told em that the car we had again couldnt hit the broad side of a barn and half the targets didnt light up. I caught them off guard so I got a straight answer of we are here to fix it see the tools on ground. Great customer service!
We tried delirum rob could Me no. O well no big loss hit or miss for me anyways.
then it was cold and we went home the end!
Big ups to:
FOF CREW morning shift
Sparky(sorry Mom had to work and needed car couldnt stay to do the little test)
The frog is what joe hopes to become the PKIU offical mascot. I won it at the age weight or birthdate scales and joe was having a good time. Then he beat it up pretty badly.
I was an employee last season this year Im GP.
Hey guys I have lots of piccies
Bout 100 or so pics.
Me and teenage ninja arrived around 8:45 this morning.
After another pain free dectector entrance we head into the park.
We goto the HB Gold Pass ERT.
Scooby was down so we went to beastie
We road beastie I made a ass out of myself (what else is new)
Then with all the rides down I took pics. I got everything in HB that I could. We then saw SDATC was open so we road. I got some pics of the line area. we then made our way up front for posing with nick characters. (teenage ninja got chuckie and I got jimmy neutron)
Then we watied for the rope to drop and we head to Delirium. Guess what THIS WEEK I CANNOT RIDE! Joe was jumping on it but no avail I was ****ed and got the manager. That did a whole load of nothing again(see fof from last week).
I saw erik at skyflyer and bsed about my concerns. I said I would fly later (didn't have time sorry erik).
We then went to SOB had a great ride. It made me feel better. We then went to Top Gun.
I saw some friends at Gun. Me and joe road in 1:1 and on the way in we sung a very badly ablibbed version of the George of the Jungle theme that goes like this
"Top Top Top gun watch out for that truck" while congo dancing. I had 2 of the ops rolling with our antics.
We then took more photos of Action Zone. we made our way to Adventure Express where we got a 1:1 ride again (two 1:1 rides on arrows)
We then did cyber sez. I had never done it I conviced joe to go with me. It was the haunted carnival one. I was the freakiest of freaky Joe came in 2nd some little kid didnt even score.
I felt all happy again we took more pics and got the spite remixes I smuggled into the park out of my backpack and drank em (cyber sez is hard).
We then road recaR great air on there. the 2nd lift wasn't on nore was the trim.
I won joe a frog for free (we gave the girl a 20 we got 4 5's back)
Then we went down to the flyers. The line was long so we decided to skip the flyers. Joe then road beast (I wasn't in a beast mood today) I took vairous photos of TRTR and other rivertown attactions. I went into outfitters supply and bought The Beast Triathaon shirt.
We then Road KI&MVRR got some nice photos. Joe made out with the frog.
We went out through HB took more pics. Took 2 videos. "the roll" and flyer frog 1.
It was time to go. I was going somewhere with my dad and joe had to work. I bought the guide book and on the way out joe abuses the frog and kills its eye. While on the way to the pickup we took a few more quickie movies then we went home The end.
WHATS UP WITH Delirium? I can ride one week and not the next 4 clicks and everything! makes no sence. The manager made the excuse I worked there I knew the rules. Well I have a season pass this year and I paid quite a bit for it. To be told nothing you can do about it sorry and o yeah dont bother riding again(yeah the manager said i shouldnt try).
The greeter didn't even know what the rides extension was when I asked to speak with a manager. Nore did she use the pagecom to call up she just sat there and ignored. What changes so much within a week? I haven't gained weight. I was in a t-shirt and some pants no big thick heavy shirt. If the Nogo is buckled you should be able to ride. I understand the computer system but that makes no sence. Somehow the excues given by the manager didn't cut it. I left saying "well sorry for wasting your time" Cause thats what It seemed like it was. Wasted my time and apprently his.
Now sparky You did your job I have no ill will towards what you did. Did your job and didn't offer excuses. I went over you cause I know the pecking order at PKI and you didn't deserve my *****yness. The other guy was fair game. I wasn't looking for a exit pass I wanted my ride that I paid a season pass(with parking mind you) I deserve a ride that I can get into and the nogo "goes" Delirium is a ride that boders on discrimination. I waited in line got in got it down and buckled it myself. I had joe bounce on it a but so i made sure it was down. It was 4 clicks down same position it was in last week.
What causes a green/red light what does the exact position of the restaint? PKI's usual rule is 2 clicks or the nogo has to well "Go"
Also if the seats are the same as TRTR (as was the belts accoring to the manager) how come I know I cant go on TRTR but fit into delirum. (then get squeesed into it cause it needs that extra click? whatsupwitdat?
Very good Idea will it ever happen. Nothing.
VIP goldpass night at PKI. BRAWL FOR BEAST 2k3
in Trip Reports
Posted · Edited by sobrider
I arrived really early at PKI around 3:25 and I was let right in.
I walked around and everything had a long wait and international was REALLY packed. I went over to the return ticket window and Purchased a Timberwolf concert ticket(Weird AL JULY 27th.) I got a great seat in row k seat one of section 2. Very nice seat and for 15 bucks cannot beat that!
Rob and Chuck showed up around 5 and we headed to the back of the park where it was less crowded for some flyers action.
We had 3 good rides on the flyers and we headed to beast
Beast a good ride still trimmed too much. then we went over to TRTR
Now normally NO CHANCE of me riding. SOB TOM FOF and SOBSHEdevil(or whatever her sn is) was all there. They tried 1 time didnt work so we unlocked it and tried one more time CHACHING! I was on TRTR for the 1st time. Abit uncomfortable (i wasnt breathing chest was compressed really far down. ) I loved the ride though it was GREAT! I got off and got my lungs to go back to normal and then we walked though HB witch was really busy this evening.
We went to actionzone.
We hitup faceoff for the 1st time this season. The paint looks like crap and it needs to be painted that aside we had a 20 or so min wait and we were on. Great as usual
Then down to sonny
SOB was running good a 10 min wait for 2nd car
Great ride and so much so I got the onride.
Then down to TG for a nice ride in the new train
Delirum still cannot ride!
Then back over to the flyers
Good ride trimmed some trees.
Now down to The Beast!
We enter the line. were in the 1st set of switchbacks. A girl pushes her way though the line. Rob stops her. Then I stop her. I yell to the greeter line jumper. Rob has snapped and is YELLING!Then Craig (i believe) Was cleaning and came and helped by this time she was with her group.
Security showed up and we were asked to leave the line so we could get the story straight. Rob and me complied. I said sorry to every one on my way out though walk on wed/fastpass line. The girls were still fighting with the security guards. PKI police and I believe a mason cop were there cause it was called in a brawl. we told our side and we were right. The other group left escorted by security. We finsished up We were happy it was 10pm and we did get our ride in!
Too many lights in tunnels turn it off. Other than that good night ride. We then left the park tired but not upset. It was a fun day and I am happy!
I would like to personally thank The Beast sups (if you guys post here hit me up) and beast crew member matt for there assistance today.
Also PKI security You guys were on the ball! You guys have to be the best security ever! Situation was handled so efffently and professionally I was impressed needless to say.
TRTR crew this evening thanks!
Well Im tired. But i wanted to type before the fight details left as it was moot now.
