  1. I heard they're thinking about tipping the Eiffel Tower over and retheming it "2012".
  2. I hear they are going to tear down SOB and retheme to Snoopy. I also heard we might get a Ferris Wheel and a Screamin' Swing. Last time I was at BB, I heard "Boys of Summer" like 5 times by Don Henley. I think I "heard" it reading this board. LOL.
  3. You may be right, but on YouTube, the poster states it's from 1972.
  4. Here's a YouTube video showing alot of stuff some people may not have seen before in terms of rides.
  5. It wouldn't surprise me to see Flight Deck removed in the next 5 seasons and a more thrilling ride installed. After all, it is the thrill part of the park down there.
  6. Personally, I think you went a bit overboard filing a formal complaint. Making you new sandwiches would satisfy 99% of customers. It was an honest mistake.
  7. I was really hoping Florence Henderson would show up and make out with Barry Williams.
  8. As you said. I hope they don't forget to honor The Beast, amid all the hype about Diamondback. The Beast, still today, is one of the greatest rollercoasters of all time.
  9. You can see the old Skyride at about the 2:30 mark of this video.
  10. My kids were really upset when the flying eagles were removed. They loved that ride. Stupid stupid move by KI. Really dumb. Should have relocated them. Another idiotic move by KI management which continues to amaze me with their stupidity.
  11. I agree with you, but after visiting Cedar Point this past week.........I would also love an upgrade of White Water Canyon. Thunder Canyon at CP has 4 waterfalls in it, but no geysers. WWC has the geysers, but no waterfalls. TC has better theming, but I still think WWC is better because it is longer and has the geysers, but could be awesome with some added waterfalls located where the boats would be forced into them by the flow of water. That would be my first suggestion. WWC is my favorite ride at KI. I love rollercoasters, but I love more the thought of getting on WWC with family and frien
  12. I have often thought of that idea. KI definitely needs some cross-park transportation to save people's legs. We rode the skyride at Cedar Point when we were leaving because our legs were tired and we wanted to rest our feet. Don't underestimate these old classic rides. They still have value.
  13. Because relocating isnt free. It requires a considerable amount of work to disassamble a ride, ship and reassamble a ride at a new, prepped location. King Cobra was already in BAD shape. Why would another park want a 20 year old piece of crap. Dont get me wrong, I love King Cobra as much as the next guy, probably more, but I can understand the parks position. KCKC, come on really? Honestly, from the parks perspective, do we really need two 30+ year old log flumes right next to each other? Besides, when Tomb Raider opened, nobody had regrets about the removal of KCKC. Again, I love KCKC as mu
  14. I actually rode the Bavarian Beetle way back when. I guess I was thinking "The Mouse" from the Rollercoaster Tycoon game.
  15. Outdated to me is when a thrill ride no longer provides a thrill. For instance, Screamin Demon was torn down because better rides were established that incorporated a loop in them. Why would someone want to ride something to just sent you back and forth through a loop after riding better rides? Cedar Point's "Corkscrew" has come up against the same problem. It just doesn't thrill anymore. When my kids get off a ride and say it was boring, I think the ride is no longer thrilling anyone. Same with "Mean Streak". On the flip side, some old rollercoasters still provide the thrill of "airtime" a
