  1. What’s party patrol? The people who wear the GC shirts but aren’t characters?
  2. Took a while, but these are strange days. https://www.wlwt.com/article/kings-islands-orion-will-give-its-one-millionth-ride-in-a-matter-of-days/37185256
  3. Interesting! I actually did an event with Cincy Circus years ago and their stilt walker said the same thing. He said it seemed like just like your normal legs with extensions. I imagine the weight is what you need to get used to. How did you get chosen as a stilt walker? I know the park trains you, but what’s their thought process?
  4. The price is low. It’s a crowd pleaser. It’s high capacity. I’m not claiming to know anything you don’t, I just think that it would make sense. I’m not rooting for it or anything, I just think it make sense. Never ever predict more than a few years out. Both the audience and the decision makers at KI are very very dynamic. I was told from official sources that there was no chance in hell that Winterfest would come back. A few years later, what happened? It wasn’t that I was lied to at the time. There was a major change of management that saw the park sitting there not making money in December and wondered why. Now we have the unheard of: surveys showed that people weren’t interested in a new coaster at Cedar Point. They wanted something family friendly, hence the 150th and Snake River. Does this mean that we will see things like Snake River Expedition from now on? Of course not. It’s a matter of time until people wonder when the next coaster is coming, thus the cycle continues. With that being said, it’s difficult to say for certain what’s coming in just a few years, let alone in the 2030s. With that being said, there are a few things I’ve learned in my years of this: 1) Never say never, 2) If you are told something and then the opposite happens, your source may have not been wrong, the truth might have changed 3) Changing appetites and pivot a well run park in less than a year. You know how everyone officially is so adamant that they have no plans to develop The Vortex spot? That they’d rather put capex into events like Grand Carnivale. That’s probably true. Right now. Ask again in a few weeks.
  5. You’re on stilts, right? Is your lower back just miserable by the end of the night? It just seems like it would be tough to do that all day.
  6. Well we wouldn’t want an X wing fight. Or would we…?
  7. You may be on to something. Sometimes smaller is better. In fact, I would take the smaller S&S Screamin’ Swings over the bigger ones any day: Funspot Orlando > Dollywood > Cedar Point I just feel like the smaller ones pack more of a punch.
  8. https://sanduskyregister.com/news/334163/esports-arena-could-come-to-sandusky/ Also, from CP Food Blog https://cpfoodblog.com/cedar-fair-exploring-development-of-esports-arena-in-sandusky/
  9. Right. I’m not guaranteeing anything. It just would make an incredible amount of sense of the decision were made right now.
  10. I hope the 95 degree drop is a game changer. Let’s be honest- KI is getting a dive next, so hopefully the over 90 makes it a better and/or more unique experience than what is offered.
  11. I don’t really collect park stuff but this was something I wanted for a long time. It was an online exclusive until today. I’m really happy with it Here is the finished product.
  12. Looks like some trees have been wrapped for Winterfest already in Tower Gardens. I’m not crazy, right? These lights haven’t been up all season, right?
  13. Glad to see this is back. I recall it being questionable in 2019 if it would come back. Interesting that it’s in a Friday. We still don’t know if there will be the traditional park sellout dates in September.
  14. Got the “French Whitecastles” I actually really liked the cheese they used.
