  1. When I was a Park Police Officer, it was nice having a few less crowded weekends in April to help the young security officers learn how to handle situations that could escalate quickly. For some, this is their first security job. Some are 18 and having to deal with their peers and people who are much older than them, which can be daunting. Some think they can handle situations like that, until it actually happens. I will not be commenting on how the situation was handled, but I give a ton of credit to those who put themselves in the middle of that mess and tried to take care of the situat
  2. I worked this event and that was so cool seeing Robbie jumping those trucks! The next amazing thing was seeing the absolute flood of guests back into the park afterwards. With all those guests, we were still able to keep the park safe, with minimal issues. Such a great day!
  3. When watching becomes more fun than riding
  4. A day of not being able to use, "But, I am a Gold Pass member..." in a complaint. Haha!
  5. From the perspective of someone who has worked the event as a Park Police Officer, I would highly recommend this event! We kept a very close eye out for anyone looking to cause issues, but luckily that never happened at the events I worked. Everyone always seemed to be having an absolute ball! I wish the same for anyone who attends the event this year!
  6. This is why I just go to Eli's, right by the park, before I go for some evening rides. Better food, more beer choices, way less expensive. You should check it out. (I am not a paid spokesperson. Just a bro looking out. Haha!)
  7. Hello all! It's been a long time for a post, so I figured I would knock the dust off with a trip report: Went to KI yesterday with my better half, our 8 week old daughter, 2 adult cousins, and a 7 year old cousin. We were there before 10am and I could tell it was going to be a crowded day. First thing I noticed was multiple school aged kids with the same color shirts on. (oh crap... the dreaded Education Days at the park) This is where I get into my rant... I don't think it was smart to have an Education Day, Food Truck Friday, and Veterans/Active Duty Free Day on the same day. While
  8. Just a thought... what if the Nintendo IPs aren't used in either IOA or UO and are used for a complete overhaul of Wet 'N Wild?
  9. The problem with changing Lost Continent would be a possible change to Mythos and I don't think they would want to do that.
  10. I was there. Was I THAT bad? Terp, who tried to behave. I never met you at the park while I was working there Terpy, or any other time for that matter, so you must be on decently good behavior while at the park. Haha!
  11. When I lived in Orlando, the only times my friends and I went to Epcot was for the International Food and Wine Festival or to play a game we called, "Drink Around the World." When friends with small children would visit (or should I say, use my place as a free place to stay while going to the Disney parks) I would tell them to put Epcot at the bottom of the list due to the lack of rides and things to entertain younger children. I can definitely see why Disney would want to throw some Frozen into Epcot. I have a small wager with my friends that Spaceship Earth will become a Star Wars themed rid
  12. Speaking as someone who has worked Haunt events in the capacity that you are inquiring about, let me give you the best answers that I can give: 1. Operationally, I can't give you that information, but I will tell you that there is an increased presence just due to the nature of the event. 2. The methods the park gives out information has been well documented by the users in the above comments, but I will tell you that with the amount of Park Police, Warren County Sheriff's Deputies, and Mason police, that this would be squashed quickly. Never in the time that Kings Island has been open has t
  13. In my best movie trailer voice.... Imagine a world where doctor's notes are required to ride your favorite park rides, (Quick flashes of Banshee, Vortex, etc.) you haven't gone to the doctor to get your yearly note, and time is running out until the new season! Watch as your heroes deal with dramatic events like, wait in long lines at the doctor's office, wait in long lines to turn in your note to Kings Island officials, wait in long lines to get your pass or ticket processed, wait in long lines for a teenage ride operator to verify their identity and ability to ride a certain ride, then exper
  14. Personally, I don't care what they do with rides at Epcot. Just don't mess with the International Food and Wine Festival and I will be fine! Haha!
  15. So Norwegians have the ability to bring snowmen to life? They kind of glossed over that power in the movie so maybe they will show how that works on the ride?
