KIC Enthusiast

KIC Enthusiast (4/13)



  1. There's a Sandusky Register article up now. http://www.sanduskyregister.com/article/5926601
  2. I loved Steel Force when we went to Dorney Park in 2010. The trains are gigantic and so comfortable. Seriously.
  3. Malem - thanks for the responses regarding children under 13 - no disrespect, but I am looking for a moderator to respond. Straight from the TOS - "Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We won’t knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with our site or to provide any other personally identifying information. If you’re under 13, please do not provide us with any personally identifying information about yourself (such as your name, your email address or your phone number)." Isn't requiring everyone that wants to attend the KIC event knowingly allowing someone under 13 to register, or under the revised RSVP notice are those under 13 now not allowed? A post that stated those under 13 could attend was removed when the revised RSVP notice came out indicating everyone attending would need a KIC username. I did not see in the TOS where it states that a parent should set one up for a child under 13? Plus, one needs a valid email address (not already used) in order to activate the account, so isn't that providing "personally identifying information" for a child? I am not trying to be difficult, but I am sure some will be ticked if they show up with kids in tow and Guest Services says "Sorry this one under 13 is not allowed to receive a lanyard and attend the events". I asked whoever runs the KIC facebook page. When I asked, I mentioned that we have a 6 yr old. The answer I got back is that EVERYONE attending needs an account. SO, I took that to mean that we needed to make an account for lil' man, and we did. I made an account for my 2 year old because that's the way I understood it as well.
  4. I had the boys (14 and 13) choose usernames, registered them on the forums, then sent Don one email with all the information. Was that okay, or did I just break the rules?
  5. Is Gatekeeper rough?? Not been on it yet. Hoping to go September 28th It's not rough at all. In my experiences there is just a slight vibration at the bottoms of hills and elements, especially in the outer seats, but I've bared even noticed it. Some people claim they get a splitting headache after riding, but I find it to even be smoother than Millennium Force. It isn't rough at all. It's boring (in my opinion) and the restraint hurts my collarbones.
  6. We are planning on coming to celebrate KIC's birthday! Can't wait!
  7. I don't know for sure about those perks in particular, but we have used some of our perks (free funnel cake, etc.) during Haunt. You could call the park to be safe, but I imagine those perks are still valid/
  8. Just a quick question for someone that is more observant than myself: Do they still have a woodshop at Kings Island? My husband swears they used to, and I never really paid much attention, but we were wanting to get my husband's grandparents one of those wooden plaques that says the family name and Est. whatever year, for their 70th wedding anniversary next week. (That's not a typo, I said 70th! ) We were thinking we would go over there and get one this weekend (if the shop still exists, LOL) because we don't have time to wait on shipping if we order one online somewhere. Thanks so much for your help!
  9. I'm not saying that they don't have plans for the land where SOB is/was, but I don't really think they are taking it down "quickly" nor do I think they are taking their sweet old time on the demolition. Tearing this coaster down is going to take as long as it takes. No more, no less. If they needed the land to start construction this fall or winter, they would have likely started demo sooner. I don't think the speed at which the coaster is coming down has much to do with the current plans for the land, or lack thereof.
  10. I've never noticed Bavarian Beatle's return to the park having any real effect on the crowds. Maybe I will pay closer attention tomorrow when we head over there, see if a group of people follow us around. I kid, I kid. Really though, I have to agree with Elkman. The typical park-goer doesn't remember or care when used to be there, they just want to ride the biggest, fastest, etc. New attractions will bring in far more people than bringing back the old.
  11. My son was diagnosed with a peanut allergy earlier this month and I was pretty bummed about it... UNTIL NOW! (Still pretty bummed, but I can drown my sadness with chocolate covered peanut buttery goodness.)
  12. While I see your point, it is also interesting to note that Pointfest (Cedar Point's version of SS) will take place at a stage set up in Soak City's parking lot this Saturday, not on their Luminosity stage. While it is a much smaller event than SS, Cedar Point didn't want to miss out on the extra money people will pay to see the concert.
  13. Removing TA does not mean another pay-per-ride attraction is in the works as the revenue generated by TA can be compared to a popcorn fart. TimberWolf, at one time, served a purpose. It has unfortunately fallen behind by the entertainment industry standards (lighting, compatability, electrical usage, etc.), thus why it has only attracted less than a handful of events per year. Luminosity on the other hand is fresh & new. It attracted Carly Rae Jepsen, by no means a main attraction, but bigger than Spirit Song thus it is easy to see KI adding a Luminosity type stage to attract other acts like Carly as well as have a new home for SS. AZ would be a perfect place for it. But isn't SS a seperate, ticketed attraction? As in, even though I have a pass, I can't go over and watch the concert unless I purchased a ticket specifically for SS? Sure, they could use the Luminosity stage for concerts, but if it is in the middle of Action Zone, I don't see how they are going to be able to limit the audience to only those who have tickets. If they put the Luminosity stage TOO far out of the way to allow for this, then the nightly Luminosity show probably won't attract too many people. Edit: Also Luminosity is "Powered by Pepsi" which is something we don't have at KI. Not at this time, anyhow.
  14. Swine flu for the the kiddies!
