  1. Excellent move, KI! If people are making more on unemployment than they are at a company, then there is something wrong with that company!
  2. https://www.wlfi.com/content/news/Indiana-Beach-closes-gates-567980101.html
  3. Tree branch kills 10-year-old boy at Indiana Beach Campground http://wlfi.com/2016/06/14/tree-branch-kills-10-year-old-boy-at-indiana-beach-campground/
  4. Mr. Ouimet does not own the park... Cedar Fair is a publicly traded company.
  5. I believe these are the indicator LEDs to confirm the lapbar has locked, not simply part of the light package. Quite troubling. That is quite troubling.
  6. I had no idea Cedar Fair attempted to buy Kings Island at an earlier date.... Did Paramount actually put it up for sale in 2000? I'm confused...
  7. It was mentioned again tonight!
  8. Maybe Kinzel and his cronies will take over once they are kicked out of Cedar Fair?
  9. I think they are wasting their money converting the area over to a Snoopy-themed world. Most kids I know these days don't even know who Charlie Brown is. This is very disappointing...
  10. Sorry, but the park is making a HUGE PR mistake by keeping all the details hush hush. Anyone with any experience in PR knows that the best policy a company can take in times like these is to be completely open and upfront with the public. Otherwise, as we have seen and heard here... and at the park, people start to speculate on what happened and begin making their own ridiculous assumptions, start spreading rumors, and the park just looks like it's trying to cover something up. HUGE mistake, in my opinion.
  11. So what happens if the stock goes down to $0? Is this possible?
  12. Looks like it's going to be one wild ride!
  13. Yep. Right after Old Indiana reopens. And not one moment before. oooh, Cedar Fair's Old Indiana?
  14. I heard a rumor that they were replacing The Eiffel Tower with TTD for the 2008 season? Any truth to this?
  15. I will never ride Son of Beast again unless something MAJOR is done to the track. I have ridden the ride two times. My first time was last May, and my second time was yeseterday. I thought it was a great coaster last year, but yesterday it was AWFUL. That was the roughest ride I have ever had on any rollercoaster, and they took out the best and smoothest part of the ride (the loop). I rode in the blue train and it felt like the train was bouncing up and down throughout the whole track. I rode with three other people who also said they would never ride it again. I never thought I'd say this, but the best thing to do with it may be to tear it down.
  16. Okay, thank you very much.
  17. Hello, I was wondering if the park lets non season pass holders go out to their cars and then come back in again (without paying for another ticket). Thanks for your help.
  18. Yes, from what I've heard, Cedar Fair has filled the park with several new trash "bins."
  19. I, for one, loved the old SOB. I only rode it once, which was last year on June 30th. I was too scared to ride it on all of my other KI trips before then. I loved the amazing view it gave of the park. I rode it just a little before sunset. It was beautiful . I don't remember it being THAT rough. I DO remember my head being pushed down to the side due to the force that was being applied to it (I am pretty sure it was during the rose bowl) but I wasn't in PAIN. It was 10X better than The Beast in my opinion. I thought the loop was awesome, and I am hoping that removing the loop doesn't take away too much from the ride experience. I'm excited to ride it again this season, hopefully sometime early next month.
  20. I live in Lafayette, Indiana. I got really excited when I heard that Six Flags planned on opening an amusement park only about a half hour away from here. Sadly, it never happened. I love Indiana Beach and all (it's a half hour away) but it really isn't a park that you can spend the whole day at. Every time I go there I get there at about noon, and end up leaving around 5. It just isn't big enough, and it's too expensive for what it offers. The nearest MAJOR theme park is I believe Kings Island, which is about 3 hours away. Kentucky Kingdom is about the same distance, as well is Great America in Chicago. I think the Old Indiana location would have been a good spot, as there are no major theme parks within 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Also, Indiana is the 11th, or 12th (I believe) most populated state in the nation. Indianapolis is also the 11th or 12th most populated city in the nation. I believe attendance could be very nice with the right marketing, etc. Ah well, I'll keep wishing and hoping...
