  1. When it was an operating prototype at the TOGO yard in Japan, I don’t believe it even had the white primer on it yet that’s present in the photo during reassembly at KI.
  2. The backstory on that is rather interesting. They literally bought the ride "off the lot" and it was taken apart and shipped here.
  3. It's after miiiiiiiiiiidnight... KIExtreme is now 29. Stay tuned around here for updates from KIC regarding the photo archival.
  4. I can certainly see Urgent Scare and other medical-theme attractions being nuked and replaced all across the park industry.
  5. (No relation, just to be clear, lol)
  6. There was PKI Asylum, then KI Asylum that was the original home of the music pack that I inherited when they closed, and I remember a PKIGuide way back in the day, like 2002, no forums but detailed writeups. I think TR:TR was the last feature they did before fading off.
  7. Could also potentially be a replacement for an existing ride that was contracted out to CSF.
  8. That would be a good location for that, very true. Especially since my original hopes The Vortex station would be saved and remodeled to become a park museum got bulldozed. Literally.
  9. The main season facade for Killmart helps for sure, I wouldn't tear it down if the haunt attraction was relocated elsewhere though, I'd just turn it back into an arcade, or if they think the main arcade is sufficient and don't need to do that, turn it into a shop. Perfectly good building right on the Mall.
  10. That's why I specified "without an indoor waterpark" in that post. Paramount had no interest in operating resorts, while Cedar Fair was already an experienced operator even just in Sandusky, both on and off the peninsula. Paramount's sale of the campground land to a third party really threw a wrench into Cedar Fair's options down here. Now, if Cedar Fair were to buy the KI Great Wolf and completely rebrand/retheme it, that combined with Camp Cedar would be a really nice combination of year-round resort options. That said, I doubt GWL would be interesting in selling the location.
  11. Scaled back, the concept could work. Perhaps seasonal-only, and less of the "resort" aspects that would be directly competing with Great Wolf. If you have a year-round resort level hotel like that without an indoor waterpark like the GWL down the street, it's not going to do very well outside of the main season, especially with Camp Cedar's year-round operation and winter-friendly lodge and other amenities being promoted. If Cedar Fair had been in charge when the campground land was sold to Great Wolf, I expect they would have built their own major resort there, with indoor waterpark and all, on that site and a modernized replacement campground behind it.
  12. I'm pretty sure the park owns that land, but at the same time, it seems it would be too similar to Great Wolf and potentially not have enough market for that kind of resort, especially with Camp Cedar coming into play.
  13. It's also not a typical park number (754 exchange) so I wonder where the messages actually end up.
  14. Ah yes. Extended Play in 2003. Late night, Action Zone, jammed. That was one of Paramount's major dumbbell moments.
