  1. …and I’ve been GOOD about avoiding spoilers!
  2. WLWT: Snoopy Sneak Peak: Expanded Planet Snoopy area opening at Kings Island this weekend https://www.wlwt.com/article/kings-island-cincinnati-planet-snoopy-new-area-roller-coaster/60880856?
  3. From the iTPS newsletter. If you’re going to charge these prices in a tough economy, it better be close to perfect, let alone acceptable. https://www.blogto.com/eat_drink/2024/05/video-raw-25-burger-canadas-wonderland/
  4. I think that it’s also worth noting that, at least according to Coke, this way of creating the drinks makes the taste “fresher” than they do out of a normal fountain… or even a can or bottle. Can you taste the difference? I feel like I can. I’m a big Coke Zero guy. Out of a normal fountain it’s drinkable, but out of a freestyle it’s delicious.
  5. Although true, I’d bet they had a big cost/benefit conversation about this one since he’s a public figure.
  6. https://www.wcpo.com/news/local-news/before-the-thrills-kings-islands-coasters-get-layers-of-inspections-including-a-daily-walk-through?fbclid=IwZXh0bgNhZW0CMTEAAR3sSnsPbFCyuaaBaizlAhhHD4vukWZ9lhwKo3eOXcIz2vqV2yk-OhIONoA_aem_AavYC69QaB_HjenuIsBXyl6i1_gUNG8TFLp_fsQyg9lZsi-vp5Y4ouQlmzp4f0ZGVGo-2qkvHDCpeAkwXce-ex-s
  7. I’m kinda glad they do this. I’d be soooo tempted to spoil it for myself.
  8. Since they announced TG closing and the event just a few hours later, I almost wonder if they feared that speculation was getting out of hand and pulled the trigger on it a little early
  9. I can think of one person who will exclaim that this one is the best
  10. Maybe on here, but the average public wouldn’t bat an eye at it being closed. Hence, this is essentially an announcement of an announcement for all intents and purposes. Im not sure if this is a great example of transparency, given the context.
  11. No, I’m saying that it would be absurd to think that someone would do that and/or make that argument. So, for example, if they were going to close Orion for some reason, it would constitute a post like this, but TG isn’t exactly an attraction that sells tickets. That’s why I’m pretty certain that this is intentional as a teaser for something rather than an FYI. Sorry if I wasn’t clear with my post.
  12. Someone else suggested the ACE event being part of it, but I think that would be a level of foolish that event this current comms team couldn’t accomplish. You gonna Tweet out to hundreds of thousands of people about an event where 750 are invited? Do you think they’re going to get a long line at guest services of people demanding refunds because they drove three hours to check out Tower Gardens? Tower Gardens closes for a big part of the summer for Haunt and Winterfest prep. Do you see messaging like this for that? This post was intended to stir up speculation and interest. What’s delivered remains to be seen.
  13. More anniversary products that look AWESOME. Unfortunately I only had the foresight to take a picture of one item.
  14. https://www.wvxu.org/media/2024-05-02/evan-millward-jasmine-styles-leaving-wcpo-tv-tvkiese? I’m not saying that he would make a really good PR guy for KI, but….
  15. Don and I discussed what this may mean to KI on the latest Tower Topics: https://linktr.ee/towertopics
  16. I’m more talking about the 3 week run of the show in the big theater…. things along those lines. Meanwhile, Carowinds keeps adding and adding to their music festival. They’re doubling down on something that Kings Island wasn’t competent enough to market while our park is barely meeting the status quo. Oh, and let’s not forget that they couldn’t handle the lofty concept of a chicken sandwich that they had marketed. Some parks do what’s easy and some parks do what’s right. It’s up to the public to decided which side each park is on.
  17. I don’t even want a new coaster right now. Since KI seems to be cutting costs and experiences around every corner (which doesn’t appear to be nearly as true at other Cedar Fair properties) we’ll see a smaller, shorter, blander version of whatever is out there. I think I’d be content waiting for the merger to give the park a personnel enema before I give any hope of a quality installation.

  19. See? I told you everything would be a-okay. https://ir.cedarfair.com/news/news-details/2024/Cedar-Fair-Announces-Successful-Closing-of-1.0-Billion-Term-Loan-B-and-300-Million-Revolving-Credit-Facility/default.aspx
