  1. The water park is pretty weak compared to other parks around the country, and I haven't been there in a while. Is that old school flowrider still rough as hell? I remember the concrete bottom of it being painful. The drop pod complex isn't original, but it a nice addition. I know they tried to re-sell the lazy river refurb, but let's be real before the drop pod complex, the last addition was in 2004 with Boomerang Bay, and I think everything else is from the 80's or 90's. I understand KI has 0 competition but yeah I never go because it's really crowded, no shade, the body slides are painful, and the tube slides/raft slide aren't very thrilling. I'd honestly rather go to the Beach if I had the choice. Great Wolf too. That proslide coaster is excellent.
  2. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=jigga Please try and come up with something better.
  3. All of these nicknames are equally lame, but this is by far the worst. Yikes.
  4. This was all just a simulation.
  5. Oh nice, single rider line! That will help. I live in Chicago and don't get the opportunity to visit as much as I did in years past so the suggestions for visiting the park during the regular season don't help me, but thanks for the suggestion. I'm really just there to see the lights as I walk around and get in a couple rides on MT. I'm not in the demo or psychographic for Winterfest; just trying to sneak in an hour or two when I'm home for the holidays.
  6. Thanks, I was referring to only Winterfest, not summer since that's behind us. I'd hate to get to Winterfest and be looking at an hour line for Mystic Timbers. I did go in 2017 and was able to get in two rides at opening before the line was too long to justify. Was curious if that's still the case.
  7. I really had to dig to find these these. 2006-2009 were definitely peak for me! Working at the park, Diamondback construction, disco Crypt, the backstage/ERT day.. I know I have an butt load of pictures with Capt Nemo from the 2009 Diamondback year. I honestly think I rode it around 1000 times that year haha. darn I miss my Penguins of Madagascar hat. The only hat that fit me, haha. "If you reach your hand out to touch the hand rails on the lift, you're going to get a gosh darn splinter. I told you 100x." -Zach B
  8. I'm a bit disappointed with no Flight of Cheer this year, but it's nice that Mystic Timbers will be running. Knowing that's the only coaster open, how are the lines for it? Are we looking at an hour wait if you aren't the first one there?
  9. First glance from the webcam coming back online I thought someone had just mirrored Millennium Force and pasted it in. Looks pretty great! Can't wait to see the wave turn rise up. That looks like the highlight of the ride in my opinion.
  10. I'm one of the weirdos who likes the park's LaRosa's better; those crispy pepperonis on the top are so good. But honestly I haven't had anything other than blue ice cream or a beer at the park in 3-4 years so I'll have to reconfirm my vote next time I get to the park.
  11. Here's a huge list of all the confirmed new parks/coaster for 2019: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=76322 China - Happy Valley Qixia, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China - 4 coasters (B&M Wing, Vekoma Suspended, Intamin Sitdown, Golden Horse Mine Train) China - Hot Go Dreamworld Fushun, Liaoning, China - 3 coasters (B&M Wing, Preston and Barbieri Mobius, B&M Sitdown) China - Wuxi Wanda City Binhu, Wuxi, Jiangsu, China - 3 coasters (B&M Wing, Mack launched, Zamperla indoor) China -Guangzhou Wanda Theme Park Huadu, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China - 4 Coasters (Dual Dragons: two Intamin Inverted Spikes,an enclosed Intamin, and a spinning coaster) Look at all that B&M.
  12. The blue soft serve has been consistent across the 4 visits I've had this year. I'll gladly keep shelling out for that! Sure, I get it, the value is there if you're a local and go every week/two weeks but yikes this thread just summarizes why I won't ever add dining to my pass. I'll gladly save my money, time, and sanity for a local spot outside of KI/CP/Carowinds/Knott's, etc until they can prove that food in park is worth time/money/sanity. Hopefully they can learn from the sum of honest reviews in this thread!
  13. I had a pretty great visit last Friday from 9:30-1ish. It was very easy to store my stuff in a locker 3 different times throughout the day when I needed to and also inexpensive ($6). I gave away my locker with the code to people when it had 60-90 minutes left on it since people seem to be really appreciative of that! First stop was Mystic Timbers since it was right there and I was hoping to get a front seat ride, but I wasn't given my request for the front. No biggie, I settled for row 2 and it's still just an all around really fun ride. The line was growing so I headed over to Diamondback. The Diamondback crew was on a serious roll and I was able to get 4 rides in less than 30 minutes, hitting all my favorites (row 2, 4, 6, 10). As always a really re-rideable coaster that delivers floater air every time. I was feeling brave and decided to try Beast in the very back for the first time in....a long time haha. Typically I just wait for the front but I wanted to see how it is back there. Yeah, I was immediately regretting the decision on the first left turn and right turn coming out of the dip, but it settled in once we hit he second tunnel. It's no where close to the roughness that was consistent in the mid 2000's, but it wasn't as comfortable as the front seat. The line was barely stretching out of the "front to the left, back to the right" sign (so like, 5 minutes?) yet there was an enthusiast who was so bothered by a school/youth group waiting on the left side and blocking the right side that he had to loudly get their attention and tell them to pick a side so he could go through to the right/back side. Seriously guy? I took my time walking around the park, looked for the giga in X Base with no luck. I did find lots of printed out microsoft paint sketches, though. Banshee had the longest line in the park, shockingly! It was about 15 minutes, good for Banshee. Once in the front, once in the back. This invert is just so different than the others with how massive the elements are. It really sustains the positive G's. A few more rides and MT, Diamondback, a blue ice cream cone and I was satisfied. The blue ice cream really has its hooks in me now, that stuff is fantastic. But no more Banshee blue/purple ice cream! When did they stop serving that? Too bad.
  14. This happened to a kid when I was working during the 2009 season. It's just people not paying attention.
  15. All I noticed was a bunch the characters out roaming around and banners. Lucy at the advice booth, etc. Cedar Point has got to be jealous of KI's staffing situation because every ride had 4-6 ops in the station, greeters, and there must have been 6-8 Peanuts roamers. Pretty impressive, the kids will love it if they love the Peanuts.
