  1. If they really are going to do away with the Nick theming than I am glad my family and I decided not to renew our passes for 09. Having the nick stuff around was what our kids like the most. We also have been unhappy with Cedar Fairs moves to remove the parade and add sub par shows. With that said, I am not surprised with the direction they are going in, its the same approach they have taken with Knotts Berry Farm. Cut the theming, build a bunch of thrill rides over top of everything and get read of the dark ride.
  2. Diamondback, Copperhead or Anaconda.
  3. The timing seems wrong for this. If they were going to retheme the Nick area I would think they would do it for the 2010 season. I would be surprised to see them take on a Nick retheme and a major new coaster in the same year.
  4. Carowinds is so lucky if they get a trashy boomerang. Another star in the sucky column for CF.
  5. When you have their debt load in an economy like we have today, you may not be reading to much into this.
  6. My family and I almost never eat at KI. Once in a while we will get an ice cream or take the kids to the candy store. Prices are completely out of control and the food is subpar.
  7. CF is going to be under a lot of stress with their debt load this year. At least KI should do well in fighting for those fewer disposable dollars, since IB, HW, CP and Col Zoo are not adding any major new attractions and KI is.
  8. Maybe its going to become the next Geauga Lake. They are adding to the water park but slowing closing the dry park? Whatever they are going to do, I find it hard to believe this is a positive step for this park's future. I also find it hard to believe they would close this many major attractions to redue the area in the future.
  9. If the information from Screamscape is right, it looks like the Action Theater will still be open and showing SpongBob. That's better than closing it.
  10. Maybe...But no other chain prides itself on safety as much as Cedar Fair does. Not to start a discussion that no one can prove. But something tells me that Busch, Herschend, Holiday World, etc... take just as much pride in being a safe environment as Cedar Fair and do it with less height restrictions.
  11. I don't remember this being discussed (but I could have missed it). It appears that KI has removed the F/X theater from their list of attractions. Yet most of the other old Paramount parks still have their's listed. Does anyone know what is up? Also, I noticed that they are raising height limits on some of BB attractions. Snowy River is now up to 46". This height limit issue over the last two years is just getting stupid. It may save them a few bucks on insurance, but it continues to reduce the family experience at the park. No other park chain has that height limit requirements that CF now
  12. Are you saying they are planning special events? Like what Worlds of Fun is doing this year and other parks like Dollywood and Busch do every year. Example: Octoberfest, International Festival, BBQ Days, etc... If they are I think that would really add to the experience.
  13. Quote: "It's kind of like how you can "work hard or work smart." I honestly have no idea how much money they're putting into the park this year, but I can assure you that the 2008 season will be as exciting or more exciting than any season in which they add a ride." I hope the improvements, shows and whatever else live up to this billing.
  14. I thought we would at least get the Nick parade. I hope they at least do some major park improvements, not just signage. At this rate, 2008 maybe one of the smallest capital improvement years in KI history.
