  1. posted a few photos here....there should be many more, now that I know I can post them there.... http://www.coasterfanatics.com/sec_members...y.asp?id=100571
  2. Opening weekend at King's Island... I was personally very excited about this trip, as I had never been to the park. So, whatever I rode would be brand new. My wife had first visited the park before it took the name Paramount. Back when The Beast was hidden almost alone in the bowels of the park, but not since 95. We live near, and regularly visit Carowinds, so I was anxious to visit another park. It's probably about an 8 or 8 and 1/2 hour drive, but I was so determined, I think we made it in about 7 hours from Hendersonville, NC. My son is 7 and is also becoming a coaster fanatic. So, just
  3. Sorry I didn't comment on this sooner, but that was pretty funny. Cobra-riffic. We did get beast coffee mugs while we were there. How can you beat 2 dollars for a coffee mug? lol....
  4. Yeah, I did find a cool tall shot glass, and a Vortex button...but I may have to just keep the search up.
  5. That's what I was afraid of...oh well.... Thanks!
  6. I noticed (as with many other parks in the country) that you couldn't find any shirts or hats with old rides on them like Vortex. My wife had been a pki visitor from when she was a kid, and mentioned that you also used to be able to get stickers and patches with the rides on them. I would love a Vortex sticker for my guitar case, but none were found... Is this a hopeless search?
  7. We definately will. we appreciate it. thanks. Actually we did have a nice little chat with the ladies at the guest relations window. They seemed surprised that we were happy. Don't worry, we'll be sending a letter out to the park too.
  8. Right...I understand there was probably many images of the same thing. I'd like to think a few of these might be pretty interesting to you, though. So, how would I locate a staff memeber? One from the forums?
  9. I didn't see a submit link in the photo gallery.
  10. I completely agree. We were visiting for all 4 days of opening weekend, and compared to the staff at Carowinds, PKI, was a nice surprise. I thought the staff was knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. I also thought the park was much cleaner than Carowinds. The only disappointing thing was that a few rides were not open.
  11. I was really disappointed at SOB and Delerium being closed....but we were lucky enough to get a ride on Face Off, which was also closed for most of the weekend. SOB was one of the reasons we decided to drive to opening weekend in OH instead of VA.
  12. You guys have a great park! We were very impressed by everything in relationship to what we are used to at Carowinds. I took a few hundred pictures, and will share most of them soon. I hope to put them together in a slide show style, also, with some music. Is there a place to submit them to the site?
  13. I have seen random vandalizm decrease recently in Carowinds, but what has always bothered me in the parks was trash. I don't know how PKI ranks in this department, but I can tell you another park that was the nastiest I have ever been in, and that's Six Flags over GA. My wife and I went there a few years ago and have not been back since. Think about Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Ok, now imagine it was never cleaned for say....like a week...ok, now throw in some urine and vomit. Ok, your almost there. I'd say it pretty much ruined the trip for us. Needless to say the vandalism was pretty bad too
  14. Yeah, Mapquest is weird like that. Check this out...after all that, I just found out, they are giving cash instead of the certificate. darn, now I KNOW I will spend it before 10 days....or will I?....lol. You guys are great, thanks again.
  15. Thanks guys!! I will dedicate my Bloomin Onion to PKI Forums!
  16. Yeah...won a gift card as a bonus and was curious if I could use it on our vacation. Hmmm.....I thought they were kind of like Starbucks....eeeeeveerywhere, lol
  17. The Beast. (It's a shame that SOB will not be open....I haven't ridden either).
  18. This seems plausable....think of the great rides at some of the more independent parks... And when it comes time for new rides, instead of added a water park, a new statue of SpongeBob, or introducing new pink plastic cups with Dora on them....there may be actual long term rides added. That'd be sweet. I know I'd like to see Carolina fianlly get a giga coaster.
  19. NC to OH, Hehe...couldn't help it...had to register. So, only about 17 days left, eh?
  20. Seems a little excessive, but hey...insurance is really expensive for the parks.
