  1. I have mentioned it before, but I wish the KIGear site had some kind of a release schedule. I placed an order on Friday…now they announce the new park skyline Nanocoaster…shipping gets expensive for one item…if I had some kind of heads-up on an upcoming release I would have waited on my Friday order.
  2. Well…I will “prime the well” so to speak…looking forward to seeing some good pictures from Grand Carnivale.
  3. “VISA…it’s everywhere you want to be!”
  4. The park doesn’t have a problem packing Haunt already…sigh…the question is, if they made it less teen friendly could they pack it with more non-season pass holders who spend more money?
  5. My family and I were fortunate to have a reservation for the opening day. All of the employees could not have been nicer or more helpful. The “cabin” that we stayed in was also very nice. (I do question the wisdom of having white walls & a light beige couch…neither seem very convenient to try and keep clean…but they look great right now!) I hope the place does well…and I think it will.
  6. Will they have to change this display at Flight of Fear now?
  7. It's been a long time since i've seen The Sign Shop, that was cool back in the day....so I would also be up for that again. I have always wanted to get a closer look at the buildings along the train route. I doubt it could happen because of safety issues, but I would like to go up to the lower level observation deck on The Eiffel Tower...just for old times sake. The "graveyard" (with the discarded park items) would be fun. I like coasters...but I would classify myself more of a overall park fan...so I love seeing anything that is something behind-the-scenes that the general public doesn't usually get a chance to see.
  8. I am surprised how far we have come with credit cards. I remember working retail and where I worked back then we had a $5.00 minimum purchase because of the credit card company processing fees. It amazes me that now I am going to be charging a $1.00 drink refill and the park will still be making money. I use a credit card 90% of the time for purchases…but usually use cash for super small things like refills at the park or drinks at gas stations etc…
  9. So will the penny smashing machines be converted to smash credit cards?
  10. I hope they were laughing WITH the handle, and not AT the handle…that would be rude! (Not meaning this to be a jerk..it just struck me as funny.)
  11. I agree 100%. It frustrates me when I see line jumping...but try not to dwell on it...it just puts me in a bad mood...and I don’t want that when I am visiting the park.
  12. I could never work up there!
  13. ^Same here... I always thought these were one of the better souvenirs the park offered.
  14. Not to rain (or snow) on anyone’s parade...but if it would just be the same old “12 Days Of Christmas” train trip again, I say let the train have a nice winter’s nap.
  15. Yes, congratulations to Sixflags82...that is an excellent photo!
  16. As I mentioned earlier, I always enjoy going up the tower...I especially enjoy it at night when you have the platform all to yourself...it is so peaceful looking out at all of the lights...and a nice gentle breeze makes it even better!
  17. One of the odder photos that I’ve taken at the park...Halloween Haunt, my nephew in the fog.
  18. I always make a trip up the tower on every visit...usually right before we leave...it’s always a nice farewell to the park. On this particular day the sun was beginning to set and casting long shadows, I particularly think the shadow of the mom and her kids holding hands turned out nice.
  19. I also migrated over from PKIUnlimited...my first post here was a smart a$$ comment about Son of Beast...and how the park came to their decision of where to place the on-ride camera.
  20. I hope everyone has a very nice Christmas! Here in Illinois we only got a slight dusting of snow...but I’ll take what I can get!
  21. I thought the park outdid themselves decorating the carousel!
