  1. I imagine the park wants to get the underwater tunnel beneath Vortex done before the season starts.
  2. Oh my... I wonder if Matt Ouimet could pull off the "tattooed leather-clad biker" look as well as Jim Reid-Anderson.
  3. I know you're joking, but since I love edumacatin' folks -- it's called "harmonized" because the provincial government decided to combine the provincial and federal sales taxes in to one single tax.
  4. We pay a lovely 13% "Harmonized Sales Tax" (HST) on almost all purchases in Ontario.
  5. When you were at the top of Valravn could you feel the ride swaying in the wind? I've heard the structure shakes a lot.
  6. This reminds me of my last trip to NJFTP. The ride op on The Dark Knight was quite literally yelling inane Joker impressions into the mic. If he were any louder people in the queue probably would have suffered hearing damage... I appreciated the recorded spiels at Hershey. Professional and classy.
  7. Is that what happened? I had thought Cedar Fair was considering the product from the "other company" but when they had finally settled on Mondial the "other company" started publicly whining about patent infringement, ruining the announcement for the WindSeekers.
  8. Last I had seen, the lift/drop structures have been removed but the concrete troughs, station, and some other scenery elements still remain.
  9. Sure, but other Cedar Fair parks, including Kings Dominion, Carowinds, and Cedar Point, have similar lists on their websites. My point still remains.
  10. Canada's Wonderland has a rather comprehensive list of food options available for those with dietary restrictions. Presumably it would not be impossible for Kings Island to do the same.
  11. I'm pretty sure Honorarius is Canadian, assuming he is the person of the same username from CWMania. So there's no need to tell him what Canada Day is....
  12. I interpret that as a reference to the start of daily operations tomorrow.
  13. It seems like the biggest screwup on Cedar Point's part was combining OSU day and "preview" night. If there are going to be opening day jitters, they will just be exacerbated by huge crowds. And I'm sure the crowds are even worse with a new coaster opening.
  14. Resting on your laurels is never a good business strategy...
  15. Yes. Avalanche Run at Kings Dominion. ...Coast Rider at Knott's? It's as recent as 2013.
  16. Hey, I took that photo! Funny seeing where your own photography will end up... And yes, it is indeed Behemoth.
  17. Eh, Google is kinda guilty of that, to some extent. Just as an example....they acquired Songza (a great free, ad-free music steaming site that I really enjoyed) and crappily integrated it with Play Music and started injecting ads every few songs.
  18. Overall, I prefer the Flash Pass Qbot system over the Fast Lane wristbands, though I do find the way its been implemented on certain rides to be very irritating.
  19. That's appalling...wow. That's enough time to leave the park, eat elsewhere, and then come back. Possibly with time to spare (and undoubtedly with nickels spared, too).
  20. It's also probably running with hard nylon wheels right now, which makes the train louder and faster.
  21. and http://www.KICentral.com/forums/index.php/topic/31768-my-kings-island-iteanrry/ And the 8 or so threads this user has started on the roller coaster subreddit about the exact same topics (without ever participating in the threads, I might add!).
  22. Discovery/Daily Planet actually made a great little video about it:
  23. http://live.pointbuzz.com/ I'm so thrilled that Cedar Point is going outside of their comfort zone to bring us healthier food options. Edit: More here: http://cpfoodblog.com/frontier-inn-to-replace-cedar-point-chick-fil-a/
