    PKI Sold?

    I haven't been following the forums, but my friend told me today that his dad( who works for procter&gamble) told him pki got sold. Is this true, and who bought it?

    Bubba Gumps

    Thats another reason they should get rid of the bees! Don't carpenter bees build make holes in the wood to build nests? Thats probably not something they want to have. And why couldn't they buy the same kind of dogfood. I don't think it was a special order, I've seen plenty of dogfood in a small size.
  4. Coastergirl, I think you've discovered a new idea for P?KI '07! Or at least i'll keep that idea in my head, cause i think its a wonderful idea. They need more things for grown-ups anyway. ( I put a question mark after the P because i don't know if it will still be paramount's or not)
  5. The staff was very nice saturday. They were talking and asking how your day was going. That was the positive side of opening weekend. The people at the fudge counter were nice too.
  6. "This opening day update includes: Nickelodeon Universe up and alive for the first time! The special character breakfast with some of the most popular Nickelodeon characters. General park improvements and things you may notice different from last year" What park improvements are they talking about. They didn't make sure the rides were ready and they could use a paint job on a lot of places. I think they spent a little TOO much time in Nick Universe during off season. The other park is just as important if not more.
  7. Does anybody think the music is louder than usual at PKI? The music is supposed to be softer background noise.

    Old Cars

    Can anybody tell me when and why they took out the first half of the old cars? I guess this was a clue the other half wasn't gonna last much longer. I wish they would come back. That was a true family ride. People of all ages can ride in NU, but that doesn't mean dad enjoys the baby coaster. But those cars were fun for everyone.

    The second Hot Topic I've started. You guys are great.
  10. I don't know when PKI got a breast crew, but how do you join? Sounds like the job for me!

    Huh, and I always thought Paramount was a charity organization. Rides were broke down????? man did they run out of the fairy dust that keeps machines operating no matter what. I thought they were required by law to keep Ride fairy dust in stock all summer so rides don't break down. Whats with the world today....soon they will be asking us to pay for gas, and what would it be like if counties started making us pay for water....I mean gosh EVERYTHING SHOULD JUST BE FREE!, AND THE WORLD PERFECT Wow! I don't think I can put into words exceptable for this forum how stupid you just made your
  12. For anyone that has passed by Bubba Gumps, they have noticed the bee infestation. I've never seen so many bees in the park, especially in one place. Also, back where you feed the gold fish, the have a much larger type of dog food, and you only get 5-6 pieces for a quarter. The dogfood is also too big for the fish to eat, and I could count 20 groups of fish fighting over pieces of dogfood for long periods of time. What's going on with PKI?

    Can someone tell me why Delirium never works. I thought I seen an empty test run yesterday morning, but the ride was closed all day, with about 3 people working at that ride, which doesn't seem very practical. But last year when I visited it wasn't working either. Is there anybody that asked them what the problem was?
  14. Yesterday was my first time visting PKI on opening day. I thought that since it was the "Grand Opening Celebration" that the park would be in tip-top shape, but I found that to be not true. Drop Zone and Italian Stunt track had some difficulties, and i noticed Italian stunt track was actually closed. Bathrooms were dirtier than normal. And this isn't a big deal but why don't they have cheese in festhaus. Another thing is the added counters in the food line at Festhaus. They set the food under the new raised counters, and then your pizza gets cold. I found that out first hand. So tell me if thi
  15. I thought a HB themed movie was supposed to be in the motion theater, but its still the stupid spongebob 3D

    Old Cars

    The cars are still sitting in the same place beside days of thunder.

    Old Cars

    What do you consider a regular park goer? I don't think 99.5% of the people who visit the park visit regularly. Think about how the ticket line at the front gate, if they all visited regularly they would have a season pass, and I think they are more than .5% of the visitors. And I may be overlooking it, but I can't find Italian Stunt Track on the pki website. I guess that shows how they feel about it.
  18. That would show how many people really cared about HBL
  19. Thanks everyone for making this the first hot topic I have created
  20. How can you say that UncleHenry? You will not miss HBL at all? I sure would rather look at the familiar characters I grew up with rather than the new characters of Nick Universe. Cartoons aren't like they used to be.

    Old Cars

    Does anyone know what they did with the old cars? I believe I could see them in storage from drop zone last year. I sure wish they kept those instead of bringing Italian Stunt Track. I rode that once and never have since. The line is too long, and I wasn't too impressed.
  22. What is everyone gonna miss most from HB Land? It's going to be very different when I turn the corner on International St. on Friday not to see the HB land. Hopefully the HB action theater ride will make up for part of the loss.
  23. I hope another theme park operator (like Cedar Fair or AB) doesn't buy paramount parks because then pki will become just like their other parks. Whoever buys it hopefully will keep it generally the same, just rid of the paramount names for the rides, and I assume they will have to get rid of the part with all the squares with the name of paramount movies
  24. Well I guess i won't be eatin chinese Friday. Thanks for the info
