    International street makeover

    If they remove the top of the shop buildings where are they going to hide the green Intamin track?

    Vintage Coney Memorabilia

    Knew I recognized that tunnel! Was unsure due to the angle. Thanks for the info!

    Vintage Coney Memorabilia

    Bumping my own thread because I can. Now that I’m a big kid and have my own house I can do whatever I want. So after eating ice cream bars for dinner I decided to hang these rad pictures that I recently acquired. I bought all three on eBay and were all supposedly of Coney. The bottom two clearly show The Shooting Star and Wildcat and the other shows a great shot of the midway. The last one I’m unsure of. You be the judge!

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    I’ve officially heard it all. So we can go ahead and confirm that the name of the new project is “They,” right?

    How do you lose a giant crate?

    Renovation Predictions

    Totally forgot about the Oktoberfest sign. That’s sick. That area of the park needs some love. I’m definitely over The Crypt building. That things gotta go! We need some kind of dark ride to replace Boo Blasters. I’d be all about replacing BLSC with a modern woodie with a bit of vintage style flair to fit in better with Coney Mall. Name it “Wildcat” after the classic Coney coaster to really bring everything full circle historically.

    International street makeover

    Man, those are some cool pictures. I’ll echo what others have said about the “sidewalk” in the first picture. It would be stellar is those made a return. That looks great.

    International street makeover

    Sounds pretty wonderful. I hope to see some additional “international” additions in the coming years! Very excited for this!

    Haunt 2019 Discussion

    I think a refocus of quality vs. quantity would be beneficial. There are too many mazes in my my opinion. I’d rather see fewer well executed mazes with more personnel than more mazes that suffer the same fate as Killmart as described above. It would also be cool to have each area of the park be specifically themed or turned into a scarezone. Something like this was done years ago during the Fear Fest days with Rivertown being converted into “Sleepy Hollow. I thought that was tight. The return of Route 666 with the new Tiques would be a no brainer. Winterfest has proven that they do have the ability to go pretty immersive with their events, so if I had one wish for Haunt 2019 I guess it would be for it to get a bit of an overhaul to reflect the level of quality set by Winterfest.

    Haunt 2019 Discussion

    See that’s where the issue lies with Haunt. There’s really no reason for them to invest more into the event if the numbers are doing well. But I too wish we could see Haunt on the same level as Winterfest.

    Haunt 2019 Discussion

    Well, given the article was written in July (before Haunt 2018) I don’t think it could possibly make any specific reference to the attendance or quality of the events. Haunt (amongst other things) was scaled back in 2018 as a result the third quarter: Net revenue was down 2% as a result of a 3% drop in attendance. If you enjoyed Haunt in 2018 then that’s great. In my opinion (and this sentiment is shared by others) it was a little on the disappointing side in comparison to years past. Nonetheless, I’d say it was obviously scaled back. Haunt always draws bigger crowds due to the nature of the event. It doesn’t matter if there are fifteen mazes or seven. My point is that the quality wasn’t there, and that was almost expected.

    Haunt 2019 Discussion

    It might have been. Cedar Fair was basically “giving away the gate,” so to speak. The forth quarter featured a number of different promotions to drive attendance and increase in park spending/revenue. That had nothing to do with the quality of 2018’s Haunt.

    https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/cedar-fair-reports-revenues-through-july-4th-holiday-weekend-300678918.html While I don’t have specific numbers regarding the 2018 Haunt budget, it’s been discussed that numbers through 7/4 resulted in a much scaled back event. The results were pretty evident. That’s my opinion anyway.

    Haunt 2019 Discussion

    Haunt 2018 was pitiful due to budget restraints. It was the most disappointing Haunt that I’ve been too. It’s really only up from there, I guess. I feel like th focus now is shifting to Winterfest, which in my opinion is a good thing. So, we’ll see.
  15. I was totally going to post this tonight. Unbelievable.
