  1. Thank you so much! It is going well! She actually felt well enough, that she left the wheelchair and is walking. Getting our Orion ride soon!
  2. Yes and thanks! I actually emailed Don this past weekend. He responded and was very helpful. He's such a great asset to the park, and an all around good person!
  3. Thank you! She is definitely excited for our trip. It's nice to see a smile on her face knowing she has something to look forward to. Today she had a reading of some scans she had earlier in the week. For the first time since it has come back, it actually responded a bit to the last bit of treatment she had. Right now it's about comfortability, and this news means she can literally breathe a little easier. It has taken some pressure off of her esophagus. I'm not sure if this is going to change things and motivate her to fight for a little more time, but it was a nice bit of positive news.
  4. Hello there! I'm a long time member that used to be a whole lot more active on this site. I still very much love the site and lurk all the time. My sister has breast cancer and the outlook is not a good one. Her treatment hasn't been successful this go round. So, she has decided to stop treatment to avoid being sick all the time for no reason. She is spending a day with each immediate family member, and ours is Saturday the 26th at Kings Island. She wanted to spend the day with her brother at his favorite place. Also, she wanted her last new ride to be on Orion. I was wondering if anyone
  5. If they could purchase one more park. I'd go for Fiesta Texas. Cedar Fair would do well to have some representation in that part of the country.
  6. I really like Airtime thrills and eltororyan
  7. I'm in Rivertown so it's good to hear we put in some good work! What made it good?
  8. I was looking at most of the promotional images for Orion and noticed Vortex is mostly absent. In some it appears to be there, but very covered up. In some it should be right there by WindSeeker, but doesn't appear to be there at all. It would be a good comparison to show Orion's height. The Orion logo to me looks to be in similar style to The Vortex logo as well. I think they knew for a while. I don't post here much any more, but I had to for this. I don't feel the park will ever be the same without it roaring through the inversions right by the midway. I'm sad, but will look to the fut
  9. Perhaps the 6919 is the date construction will begin for a 2020 opening?
  10. ignore... Post duplicated
  11. There is also announcements made over the loud speakers advising parents of when Halloween Haunt creatures will begin to take over the park.
  12. I can agree the lines and crowds were managed efficiently... Though I thought the ice cream lines needed some kind of temporary queue! There was quite a cluster!
  13. I'm genuinely excited for this addition to the lineup! I'm hoping they break the height record again! I doubt it'll happen looking at the plans, but I'll continue to hope. On another note, at one point the park boasted about having the most wooden track at a park... Did they lose that with the demolition of Sonny? If so, wood be nice if they got that back too! See what I did there?
  14. It has been a while since I've posted, but I visited Carowinds for the first time yesterday. While I'm totally on team wooden, it isn't stopping me from trying to devise a plan on how to bring Fury back home with me! It was incredible and would be a stellar addition to KI! The only similarity it shared with Diamondback is manufacturer and restraints! It certainly is not boring and mild!
  15. There were rarely times when there weren't groups, at least in my room! Reset, wait, plan a scare with someone nearby are all options. Just keep a watch out for people coming we could often hear groups way before they got to us!
  16. I can't speak for the others, however I've busted my butt all year every year since 09. Be it Cut Throat, Tombstone, Roaming or now Blackout I've always enjoyed the fun I've had taking Haunt seriously. I started later than normal this year due to injury and was dissapointed to lose my position as a Rivertown Roamer. I got placed in Blackout and didn't know what to expect. Although, I missed the first weekend which had a few mishaps, we have improved week over week. This is the first house/trail I've worked in where I continuously hear people coming through my room audibly mentioning how mu
  17. I agree whole heartedly... I'm baffled by the fact that Soak City has operated so long with the concession options it currently features. The water park is too small for its own good. A ridiculously small Subway, Ice cream joint, and main stand is simply not enough! I also think what guidelines were set in motion need to be followed too. We saw several people leave with trays of pizza in Soak City after holding up the line and arguing. This isn't even counting the fact they were in not even said line for pizza, which is at the end of the stand. Waiting over a half an hour for two powerades a
  18. My opinion on the matter is that there is nothing wrong with breast feeding in public. However with that being said, it is still public so either cover up or go into a restroom. Don't have to feed sitting on the toilet. Also, don't need to have entire breast out while feeding outside. To me although inadvertent, it is no different than exposing another private part in public. Just my opinion.
  19. That's awesome lol beats The Overlord any day! Sent from my iPod touch using Tapatalk The Undertaker is great and a friend of mine however, I don't think I'm that bad at what I do!
  20. Anybody have any good food recommendations while in the park? Is it better to just eat outside the park?
  21. Taking a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure Thursday and was trying to get an idea on the price for a Flash Pass. I checked around their website as well as a search here but found no answer. Any idea on the possible range of price. Also, side note, I haven't been to a Six Flags since 2002 and It was the then Worlds of Adventure. I'm imagining the parks are ran a lot better these days right? I know Terpy speaks highly on the park, so I'm sure all is well.
  22. My wife doesn't enjoy most rides, but likes coming to the park because she likes to see me happy. She waits with me in line for most of the rides so I have someone to talk to while waiting. Plus, she likes to watch the reactions of people. I really don't see a problem with it as long as she doesn't hold up operations. She usually does it on the rides with a longer wait, and when she can exit the station easily. Usually the rides she waits in line with me end up being The Beast, Banshee, and Diamondback.
  23. Actually posting here to commend the DB crew which hasn't happened here as of late. I visited Thursday and while in line it only stacked once waited about 20-30 minutes for half of the upper and half of the lower queue. I was pleasantly surprised!
