    Gravity - Kings Island Theater 2018

    Not to mention that this is the 5th year of cirque shows, so why was the reporter not informed of this? Was anyone really surprised by this? I get that Forever Country isn’t exactly Fantasmic, but what about the national attention from Robbie Knievel, Nik and Rick Wallenda, and so many more entertainment-specific things that have been directly associated with Kings Island that garnered national attention. I’m sure they appreciate the nice words, but this article is tantamount to someone saying, “Can you believe my idiot son won the spelling bee?”

    Very nice article, except for the opening line... https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.google.com/url?rct%3Dj%26sa%3Dt%26url%3Dhttps://www.wblzmedia.com/2018/06/16/kings-island-gravity-is-an-experience-you-cant-miss-at-the-park/%26ct%3Dga%26cd%3DCAEYACoUMTU2NzM1MTQ3Mjc0MTc4MDQxMzEyHDE0ZmFmZTk0MGJhMzg2MjY6Y29tOmVuOlVTOlI%26usg%3DAFQjCNHGg8drgptYVpj3yWieRjzgreSs_Q&source=gmail&ust=1529272777766000&usg=AFQjCNFozNWWO9lfhi44GiFiVjBMB2RKsA&rct=i
  3. Sorry. I refuse to blindly praise people who aren’t doing their jobs. Like I said, some - not all - fall under these categories. Now people are getting injured. Great job. Sorry, I critique. I’m praise when praise needs to be given, I claim foul when foul should be claimed. I’m an observer, not a fanboi like some.

    I want that guy’s job! Except for the whole balancing thing...
  5. Yep. You make an excellent point. Regardless of what some might claim, retweets and likes are in fact endorsements. I do not the circumstances, but this is an incredibly stooge-like move, especially given what’s happening within their own chain. 100% inexcusable. **Also, I want to correct my original statement. I stated that @KingsIslandPR liked the status. This was mentioned in error.
  6. Retweeted by Chad Showalter and liked by KingsIslandPR. Anyone see a problem here? Only posted in this thread because this is likely exactly why this person was injured.
  7. No one said it was either the ride ops’ faults or that spieling was directly correlated. If you read my original post, you will see that I implied that the safety of the guests is shared: the ride ops give the rules and the guests must comply. The only way that spieling comes into play is the fact that everyone in the station is using everything in their being to tune out what’s said over the mics when they treat being on the mic as play time. So what if they did tell them to put their phone away (I don’t believe for a second that it was secured) and they honestly didn’t hear them because they were conditioned to tune out what’s being said? It’s simply a theory.

    I don’t think that’s true. They’d close all of them in the chain if that was the case. Also, it’s listed for sale.
  9. This is why you follow the rules as a guest. Also, this is why it shouldn’t be play time on the mic as an operator. You have a responsibility to prevent things like this and you can’t have everyone in the station tuning you out. http://m.nbc12.com/story/38419337/woman-injured-by-flying-cell-phone-on-roller-coaster

    JUMP! the ultimate dog show

    Saw it a few years ago and thought it was eh. I liked petting the dogs at the end, though. I guess it went over well since they brought in a similar show last year and brought it back this year.

    Yelling at ride ops??

    I always thought being the greeter would be the most hot, boring thing you could do as a rides kid.

    Winter Fest

    EVERYBODY would have thought after seeing the crowds last year! The WF schedule has not been released because of reasons like this. I’d say very little is off the table at this point.

    Yelling at ride ops??

    I don’t think so. I think people are well aware that there are height limits. One thing I’ve seen has been a kid being measured and rejected after the kid had ridden earlier in the season or even in that day. I think that’s fair enough grounds for a parent being upset and/or annoyed. A former area supervisor (that you know too) has told the story several times about an upset family whose kids were rejected from riding FOF because they were too short. The kicker? They had ridden earlier that day. The final blow? They had purchased the photo to prove that they had ridden. He was left with nothing to say except that the ride ops hadn’t done their jobs earlier in the day. Can you honestly tell me that in the day and age of understaffing and far too many associates that are more concerned with saying “funny” things on the microphone than doing their jobs that this doesn’t happen far, far more often?

    Kings Island wants to add dorms

    Maybe KI, but not the other two.
