  1. Maybe Coney could scoop up some of the Beach's slides? Guessing their age may make that not so attractive, but I would think buying and doing a little refurbishment would be an easy way to expand the slide count for Coney at a low cost?
  2. LOL! Clearly they're using it to market the attraction as a fun feature on their website. But your argument that there would be no hype over this without it or that you're entitled to it is ridiculous. But, not surprising.
  3. Are you even serious? So no ride in the past without a webcam has had hype? No rides at Universal or Disney have construction webcams. I don't think Hershey Park has a cam for their new coaster. It's called advertising. They're doing it and still posting pics on social media.
  4. Get over yourself. I've criticized the park plenty of times when deserved. This isn't a big deal. But I'm done. I'm not changing any minds. My mind is not changed. This has been a nice reminder of why I and many other members have stopped frequenting this site.
  5. Frustration is fine, but people are treating this like it's a huge deal. It's not. Cool. Nobody has talked about season pass sales. But the giant ride their building will take care of that. Nobody (reasonable) is buying their season pass based on a webcam.
  6. It's a very small minority. This isn't a product you purchased from the park. It's a free feature on their website.
  7. WHY do they need to issue an official statement about some webcams that only a small minority of people even check?!
  8. Not trusting them over an explanation for something important like a ride accident or malfunction... sure. But acting like there's some huge breach of trust because the webcams are down... come on. This isn't some government conspiracy people. The entitlement...
  9. Construction webcams aren't a right for enthusiasts, nor is it something that they HAVE to do or that some parks do at all. It's a nice thing the park doesn't have to do, yet they do it. Nobody is entitled to anything. I get the frustration, but to act like this is some outrageous thing and that you deserve some sort of explanation is just insane.
  10. Let me get this straight... Kings Island is building a $30 million giga coaster, they also moved one of their webcams to film construction. That webcam has been down a couple of days, so you're now mad enough that you want to get a pass still but in a way that will look less beneficial to Kings Island? You come off extremely entitled and whiny.
  11. You know, there was a time when we didn't have live video cams to watch roller coaster construction on. You'll all survive.
  12. Not to mention that he just looks dumb doing it.
  13. I think a Mack multi-launch would be great in that area. With Firehawk gone and now Vortex leaving, that's two large steel inverting coasters out of the park. I think that void needs to be filled, and would love something like Blue Fire at Europa Park or a Mack's equivalent to Maverick. I think that's a near perfect plot for something like that.
  14. That's what I figured it was something like that, but had never seen it before. Blue is going now.
  15. Any idea why the Red Racer just randomly cycled. Just saw it on the webcam.
  16. Ok. The lift is "only" 287 feet tall... the drop is 300 feet. Millennium Force is 310 feet tall but the drop is... you guessed it, 300 feet. Even Fury 325's drop is only 20 feet taller. And then we're talking a difference of 2 MPH (MF) and 4 MPH (Fury)... this thing is going to fly through it's course and potentially be much more forceful. Be happy you're getting a Giga at your home park and quit complaining.
  17. Get out. Best swinging ship ride in the world.
  18. I'll admit to not reading any posts in this thread, but Cedar Point needs a dark ride or at the very least.... something inside.
  19. Have Disney shell out the money and have Universal snatch up the rights to DC. I think Disney has done an EXTREMELY poor job with Marvel so far though. Mission Breakout is a good ride but that's because it's a retheme of a great ride and now is just Thematically terrible. Other than that, they have a Star Tours Marvel ride and a bad Buzz Lightyear shooter ride retheme... I guess we'll see what happens with this, but it's not been great so far.
  20. So... I was there on Sunday and walked over by the former DA! entrance and also rode Racer trying to get a look. Pretty sure I didn't see any additional tree clearing, but I saw areas that looked empty, but that's where Dinos used to be and are now vacant. Maybe I missed something, but didn't see any mass clearing going on. Obviously they have plans for the area, but I'm not sure I saw anything getting started.
  21. Give me Maverick over Millennium any day of the week... and twice on Sundays.
  22. A mistake I won't be making twice! Had fun on my trip last May, but I could've done without the bugs flying everywhere/splattered on every restraint! I'd rather have a terrain hugging ride like Maverick (maybe Intamin, or maybe even Mack) than a Giga to be honest... That's just me though...
  23. Ideas for the Crypt building? Tear it down. And tear down the SOB station and Action FX Theater at this point. If KI isn't going to put these structures to better use than a haunted house for 1 month every season, they need to go. I'd honestly love to see the Blackout building, Slaughterhouse building, and Killmart go too, but I don't see that happening. At the very least, tear down the old rides that are only used for Haunt now. Such a tacky look. And I'm a big Haunt fan.
  24. I can't attest to Opening Day itself, but I went last year on the first full week it was open and experienced a handful of breakdowns, most notably on Top Thrill Dragster (not the most reliable ride on any day, but still). We got lucky with the weather, and got to ride most things since we were there multiple days (except Top Thrill Dragster), but beware the May Flies... Skipped riding Gemini because they were so bad. Overall, based off what people are saying, looks like there couple be some hiccups, but you should still be able to have a fun time.
