  1. I love the name, and really love the logo. And don't worry about the other "Diamond Back". I don't think there will ever be any confusion over the two.

  3. They are using the Behemoth style trains. What made you think they weren't? Only the model has the 4 across seats, because CoasterDynamix doesn't make the newer train style (yet). And I kind of like that the webcam is changing images. Lets us see different areas of the construction. And I would guess the reason they aren't multiple links is because this is all taken from the same camera, similar to how Holiday World's webcam is.
  4. Actually you probably did, and didn't see that statement. I didn't see it either til I went back and read the whole thing. It was the latest newsletter sent out yesterday about the new ride announcement. The subject line is "The 2009 Ride is Unmasked This Wednesday!" It has the info about the announcement, info about jobs for Halloween Haunt, and the Jordan Pruitt concert. Then over on the right hand side under Upcoming Events, the last item says: "Labor Day Weekend Save the Date, Exciting Details Coming Soon!".
  5. I've always had quick response when I send emails to Cedar Point. If any large company doesn't respond to an email (especially if its sent using a contact form on their company website), then that's a sign of poor customer service. We are in the 21st century, and that's how people communicate in today's world.
  6. I'm sure it will be done before June. Behemoth opened on April 25, and vertical construction didn't start there until the end of August 07. I would hope this coaster will be ready by opening day 2009.
  7. I believe those first supports went up yesterday.
  8. If you have a Platinum Pass, it's buy one get one free, so 2 people can ride for $20.
  9. I'm going with some type of reptile name. I'd say maybe Copperhead or Diamondback.
  10. Glad to see that the change in management hasn't hurt attendance in any way. I'm going to have to get back over there one of these days and check out Steel Hawg.
  11. Looks like the price for the Unlimited Drink wristbands has been increased. It now says $8.99 on the website.
  12. I would contact Cedar Point before assuming they have a similar deal. It was only mentioned on Point Buzz by one person. There's no mention of it anywhere on cedarpoint.com, and I was at the park yesterday, and I saw no evidence or signs of a deal like this there.
  13. I've heard a similar rumor as well. Not sure how reliable it is, but a couple of weeks ago, I was in line for Dragster at CP, and was talking to a family from Kansas City. Two of the older teenage girls work at Worlds of Fun, in the Camp Snoopy area, and they said there was talk that Spongebob was coming to Worlds of Fun. So at this point, it sounds like decisions are still being made about the future of any licensing contracts across the entire chain. It will interesting to see what the future holds.
  14. I'll be there. Bringing a couple of friends too. Can't wait to meet all of you! Especially now that a Project 2009 construction tour has been added!
  15. I'd love to see a webcam mounted somewhere on the Eiffel Tower to capture construction. Hopefully once the ride is announced, there will at least be a Construction diary along with construction photos.
  16. Not sure where you're driving from, but if you're taking 75 north, you can turn off on Hwy 6 (Exit 179) and follow that all the way into Sandusky. Once in Sandusky, follow the signs to Cedar Point. That will keep you off the turnpike. As far as parking, I would suggest parking in the Soak City lot, and using the Magnum/Resort gate. If you're a platinum pass holder, you can get into the park at 9am, otherwise you'll get in at 10. Enjoy your trip!
  17. And he's pointing fingers at the park. He sounds like Ed Markey.
  18. Of course you can. All we ask is that they register on the forums of KICentral. It only takes a second and registering on KIC is 100% FREE! Do they need to be a registered member before I purchase the tickets? I just want to get the tickets as soon as possible before the event sells out. Sorry for all the questions, but I'm still kinda new around here. I'm excited to get to meet some of you at the event. Thanks, Mark
  19. Can I purchase a ticket for a friend who is not a member of KICentral?
  20. It's saying there will be a KICentral Event on 8/16/08. I'm sure details of "The Event" will be announced soon. Nice video Ryan!
  21. Yeah, that was incredible. I was on that train too! Great trip report, and some great pictures. Glad you had a fun trip!
  22. That's the reason I joined! Keep up the good work Ryan!
  23. One the funniest ones I've heard happened near the end of the '06 season at Cedar Point. While waiting in line for Magnum, there was a group of teenage girls in front of me. They were discussing what to ride next. One of the girls said she wanted to ride the red coaster at the back of the park. Her friends told her it wasn't open yet. (It was Maverick, still under construction). She then asked if they took all the rides down during the winter. I could barely control my laughter.
