  1. They will have room to RMC The Beast and put water back around it.
  2. I rode it on Opening Day 1987. I will be there to ride it on October 27.
  3. 1972. I remember riding the train with people beside it, log flume, Scooby Doo, Bavarian Beetle, not being tall enough for racer, not being tall enough to drive the antique and turnpike cars, the original Enchanted Voyage. I was three years old and I thought it was the best thing ever.
  4. Having ridden 30 or so of B&M's snoozers, I have come to expect nothing from them, yet I still feel let down.
  5. The document filed with the Warren County Recorder is a Notice of Commencement. It lists the companies that will be providing services and/or materials for a future project or projects. (See Ohio Revised Code Section 1311.04) From the Notice of Commencement, it appears that several things are going on. One of the companies listed is the rigging company that hangs the lights on the Eiffel Tower for Winterfest. There are several construction companies listed (I assume for the dorms that have been discussed). Then B&M is listed as well; however, Clermont Steel Fabricators, the company th
  6. I don't see Cedar Point in any pictures of this alleged teaser. Are there any pictures showing anything that would indicate that this is actually located at Cedar Point?
  7. B&M is not currently building roller coasters in the United States.
  8. Cedar Fair's destruction of its competition is complete! The City of Mason needs to change their zoning to designate KI's land as "amusement park only" so CF can never do the same thing here.
  9. How much "doe" will the reindeer petting zoo cost? Hopefully, it will only be a few "bucks."
  10. Today's inspection found the incident to be Intamin's fault? Where did you locate this information so soon after the inspection?
  11. If it was some spectacular ride element that the park could hype to sell 2017 season passes, they would be hyping it to sell 2017 season passes!
  12. Good riddance! The "WTF was THAT?!?!" trim brake on the first drop will finally be pooper-scooped out of existence! I could not be happier!!!
  13. I think this will be, by far, the best thing that CF has installed in Ohio since Maverick.
  14. This week at a shop at Cedar Point in front of the retro tees: Guest 1: What is Jumbo Jet? Guest 1's Boyfriend: That's what they used to call Milenium Force before they changed the name
  15. I second Hershey Park! Although they do not have a real "kids' area," there are kids' rides within close proximity to all of the "big rides" which serve as a de facto parent swap. (The younger child has rides to enjoy while the parents and older kids ride the nearby "big rides") The family can navigate the park together without having to arrange a "meet up" several hours later. And they have lower height requirements so that my three year old could ride Sooper Dooper Looper, Trail Blazer and Comet! Where else can you hear a three year old tell you that "It looked like the world went aroun
  16. According to the article, the company's stock value tripled under Mr. Ouimet's leadership. Yet, the indefinite deal continues his current rate of compensation. In my opinion, that man did exactly what a CEO is supposed to do and, as a result, deserves a raise! And based upon his performance at CF, there may well be other companies out there that would give him that raise......
  17. Indefinite? Without a set term of years binding either CF or Mr. Ouimet, The Board can fire him at any time after his current contract expires without having to pay him for the time remaining on his contract. He can also leave for greener pastures at any time. I wonder which side insisted upon the indefinite term. Since he didn't get a raise despite the performance numbers set forth in the article, I suspect Mr. Ouimet may be working on his resume......
  18. You are using hypothetical situations to exaggerate what actually occurred. There was a thunderstorm in my hometown today (I could have been killed by lightning), I took a shower this morning ( I could have slipped and hit my head and died), I drove to work today (I could have been rear-ended by a semi)..... Suggesting that people were "nearly killed" on Shoot the Rapids is about a half step above the people who think that people were killed on Son of Beast and/or The (original) Bat! It is a wild exaggeration that unfairly casts the park industry (And, in this case, Cedar Point) in a negat
  19. Of the seven people who were injured, six were treated at the scene without being transported to a medical facility. The seventh was treated and released from the Emergency Room. The trained medical professionals who actually examined and assessed the condition of the passengers obviously disagree with your diagnosis of the injuries that they suffered. You can have a near death experience without having any injuries. The people who were in the capsized boat only had minor injuries and a near death experience instead of having an entirely dead experience because other people jumped i
  20. Of the seven people who were injured, six were treated at the scene without being transported to a medical facility. The seventh was treated and released from the Emergency Room.

  21. I haven't posted here in quite some time, but the misinformation I have read today is appalling to me! (Someone actually claimed that the seven people who suffered minor injuries on Shoot The Rapids were "nearly killed"..SMH) According to rcdb, Intamin currently has 9 coasters listed as "Under Construction." If that is a "grim" future, what does that say about B&M that only has 7?
