  1. Not everyone can afford new computers at the drop of a hat.
  2. I'd like to order a men's small please. Is there anywhere in the greater Toledo area that I could pick this up?
  3. I thought the photo gallery worked just fine. Seems like Bill only updates KIC on Facebook anymore and other (anti)social media websites. Edit: Does anyone have a link to download Instagram on Windows ME?
  4. Went back to the park for the first time in a few seasons today. Took the grand kids. Seems like Cedar Point will do anything to make a buck nowadays. What's next? Oscar Mayer Wiener mobile themed cars on Italian Job?
  5. I, for one, am glad that they installed the seat belts. Finally, my wife and I can enjoy the Diamondback experience without that uncomfortable floating sensation.
  6. Pardon me, if someone wants to correct this, but I do not believe there was a "band-aid" fix. From reading the state report it seemed that Paramount Parks' policies for maintaining the ride were appropriate and ok'd by the state of Ohio. As pointed out by our good friend The Interpreter - Cedar Fair assumed all liabilities and made the decision to operate the ride on that fateful morning. What occurred was a cracked vertical timber. According to the ride's design this should have been fine and it should have been able to operate with enough support to continue running until the problem coul
  7. My apologies on that sir, thank you for the clarification!
  8. It just your typical Allen bradly Contraol Pannel lol. Ive seen what the Main Pannel of FOF looks like many of times. I have many more Pics Id love to show but thats just the Log in screen I don't see a prop with the log in screen beign showed. I know my limits what to post on hear and what not to lol. Actually, sir, it is in fact not a "typical" Allen Bradley control panel. Aside from the rides in Planet Snoopy, no two rides have the exact same control set up. The majority of the rides feature an Allen Bradley diagnostic screen and while the physical control panels may use plastic Allen B
  9. No one's really missing out on anything. Let's face it, the ride sucks, no matter how KI wants to try and spin it on their twitter and facebook accounts. I find the fact that it got "more riders" recently attributed to the fact that the cycle is much shorter than it was in the past and its true... the ride does seem to break down a lot less. That's understandable considering it doesn't do much. However, on a Saturday night while The Beast, Firehawk and Diamondback all have long lines, you can pretty much walk right into the Crypt right past the crumbling theme, trash scattered around and wallp
  10. Most likely the ride was experiencing technical difficulties that necessitated lowering the weight in the trains, i.e. loading one less car each cycle.
  11. It might not ruin them, but its probably not good for them.
  12. People go to Octoberfest's in communities all across the area all the time just for that and I used to go into the Kings Island Festhaus back in the old days for that. Offer some unique food instead of KI's usual deep fried fare, unique beers and a fun, interactive show that isn't teenagers lip synching over a country track (the same show you can see all over the park, but with a different theme and songs) and you might have a winner.
  13. Beatle, I think you're misinterpreting eveyone's generalization. The kind of crowd you described came to Haunt anyways without the midget wresting. I think most of us are assuming they'll be bringing more of their friends this time around. - Maple, who isn't afraid of the ghouls, monsters, ghosts and werewolves (or the high school actors who play them) at haunt, but rather is afraid of the crowd that's come out the past few seasons.
