    Best Theme

    I'd probably have to go with a tie between Scooby and TR:TR. Although AE has some decent theming to it as well.
  2. I am curious about this as well. I'm planning on going on Sunday, but I need to know how early it'll be necessary for me to be there in order to ride IJ:ST. I don't mind waiting in line if I have to.
  3. Texas is also twice if not three times as large as Ohio.
  4. Another part of the problem with Paramount Parks vs. Disney is that all the Paramount Parks are seasonal. This means a few things: 1. The have only half as much time each year to generate revenue 2. They have to be very conscious about how the winter weather is going to effect theming. I just don't think a seasonal park will ever be able to come close to a Disney type experience because of these two problems. I think even Disney itself would have trouble equaling it's other theme parks if they owned a seasonal park.
  5. Changing FOF to MTV Soundwave would throw that off. I honestly don't see that happening
  6. The problem with putting IJ:ST near FOF is the fact that it would not fit with the theming of the area. PKI has a perfect area to put in a Sci-Fi themed section of the park, and the inclusion of IJ:ST would throw that off.
  7. Could you do it during sometime when there aren't people there, like during the IJ:ST tour?
  8. You ride both, neither are coasters, so they're both flats.
  9. It'd be cool but it'd probably be hard to implement.
  10. I'm just going to say one more thing about this quote. Until CP gets even a children's area that's not total crap it will never beat PKI in each and every aspect. Now I think that both places are great parks, but they both have their strengths and weaknesses. As someone already said CP is the place to go for coasters. PKI is the place to go for a more well rounded experience, and it's probably the closest we'll get to a Orlando style amusement park in this area. I don't think it needs to be one vs the other. They both compliment each other well and really pull from different demographics. In fact I'd say that PKI's main competitor is probably Six flags Kentucky Kingdom not CP.
  11. So this is basically TTD with a bunny hill? Am I the only one not impressed with these one trick ponies. I mean sure they're fun to ride once or twice but I'd rather have a slower and shorter coaster with more ride elements. Maybe it's just me.
  12. I never even understood how exactly it worked. Maybe if it was explained in a pinned post or something it might work a little bit better, but as it was I don't know if anyone knew what was going on, or it could've just been me. From "TOS and Warning Sytem" pinned in the regular PKI discussion forum: Oh I guess I should look around a little before I talk out my @$$. Oh well just ignore as I hide in the corner.

  14. You talking about the thing at the very end of the survey? I wondered that too.
  15. I haven't been on it in a few years, but it was still there last time I checked. It's probably been 3 years since I've been on it though.
  16. Just got a new survey about commercials for PKI. Here's a link http://www.parkfeedback.com/TVAD2005
  17. TTD also barely ran it's first year, and has already injured several people. I think I'll stick with our injury free and reliable yet very fun and thrilling two flat rides any day. I rather risk it and ride Dragster. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that TTD is a bad ride. I just think that SDATHC and Delirium were better investments. Also I wonder what elitescr3 would think about the match up this year: 2005 maXair vs. IJ:ST. If we're going with the premise that coasters are better than flats (which I don't necessarily believe but I think elitescr3 does) then PKI wins out this year. So if you look at the original list that was put up here's how it would read: 2000: SOB vs MF 2001: RR:RR vs nothing 2002: TR:TR vs Wicked Twister 2003: Delirium/SDATHC vs TTD 2004: CD:BB vs nothing 2005: IJ:ST vs MaxAir According to elitescr3 that would make PKI the winner of 3 out of the 6 years. Here's how I would rate it: 2000: SOB vs MF - TIE 2001: RR:RR vs nothing - PKI 2002: TR:TR vs Wicked Twister - CP 2003: Delirium/SDATHC vs TTD - Probably CP 2004: CD:BB vs nothing - PKI 2005: IJ:ST vs MaxAir - PKI As far as I'm concerned they're both running neck in neck in terms of quality investments, although it does seem like PKI is more consistent in bringing in new rides. If you look at the list there were two years where CP didn't add anything to speak of (I'm not going to count any updates to the water park at CP because it is a separate admission price and therefore a separate park) while PKI has brought in something new and different every year.

  19. There's a time and place for this IM lingo such as y for why and ur for your, and this isn't it. Try to make an attempt to use proper English and it'll go a long way around here.
  20. Really what does one smell like? I'd imagine a cross between smelly cheese and a bad greasy diner.
  21. That's oddly specific and in the middle of the night.
  22. They probably made a deal with Huss when they bought TR:TR. Could be wrong though.
  23. Has there been some indication that IJ:ST won't open with the park? I haven't heard any new to that effect.
