  1. Sorry for the double post...but I just have to say I can't wait for this summer because I'm DEFINITELY going to ride Wildcat this time! I've only been to CP three times and for some reason I've never ridden it. My brother tells me it's fantastic!
  2. I'm glad you had fun at CP your first time!! I wish you would've gotten a chance to ride Demon Drop, that was so much fun. And Chaos...which a lot of people don't like, but i personally loved it! Next time you go if you're feeling better you should check out more of their flats. Matterhorn is a blast, the Giant Wheel offers some great views of the park, and you have to try the "shoot up" side of Power Tower! Their train ride is a lot of fun too, they have really cool theming and have some extras set up back there during HH! I wish you would have tried the Happy Jack's toy factory haunt...I wen
  3. I wish you could 'like' posts on here....teenageninja and dr_humor, very well said! Some people need to step outside of their own little worlds that they live in and realize that not everything in life is catered specifically towards THEM. There are other people out there that want all different kinds of things than you do from an amusement park, and I think KI is doing a fantastic job trying to give EVERYONE something to do when they go.(if that made any sense at all lol)
  4. Some of these posts are giving me a headache. I'm really not sure what people are complaining about. A week ago we didn't even know we were getting ANYTHING in addition to WindSeeker. People haven't even been through the Dinos Alive exhibit yet and already say it's not thrilling/it sucks/boo hoo I wan't my mommy,etc. Okay so look at it this way. It's not like KI took anything out to build this exhibit. Granted, ToT's fate is unknown, but let's say if they ripped The Racer out or something to put this in then yes, I would expect the angriness to ensue. But as far as we know, they are using spa
  5. How do you know if it's an amazing attraction or not? You haven't been through it. I meant thrilling actually. Guys, I don't want to be called a hypocrite (which I was called earlier) but it's not the actual $5 that bothers me. It's the fact that they made such a big deal out of it. I didn't think it would be a ride; no, I did not. Based on your guys' opinions and inferring, I had a gut feeling it wouldn't be. I just don't get why this would cost money. I just don't. Again, how do you know if this is a thrilling attraction if you've never been through it? Why wouldn't you think the
  6. How do you know if it's an amazing attraction or not? You haven't been through it.
  7. I think this is gonna be pretty sweet!! I'm really excited to see what this whole thing has to offer! Now, why is everyone freakin' complaining about the $5 upcharge?! Nobody is forcing you to go in it. If you can't spare the money, don't go through it. And if you have kids that want to go through it, like someone else said, use it as a reward system for doing chores/getting good grades,etc. I can't believe the people that say they should add $3 to the price of every ticket!! What kind of logic is that? Why charge everyone for it if some people don't even want to experience the attraction. W
  8. I think they're being sarcastic. *sigh*
  9. I'm surprised they can't just read the instructions on the front.... Oh well, most people don't. You'd be surprised at the amount of people in the general public who can't follow simple instructions, let alone read them. I work as a massage therapist and I have a little spiel(like the ride ops at ki!) of how to get on the table, what to do with the robe..etc. You wouldn't even believe what some people gather from my simple instructions. Start face up in between the sheets blah blah blah. I come in and they are still in the robe on top of the sheets upside down and face down. I kid you no
  10. I was just imagining a teaser picture.....maybe zoomed in on a toilet seat or a sink. Everyone would start freaking out. ZOMG is that a splashdown for a new B&M dive coaster that's 800 feet tall?!? Oh and as for the driers.....I can't even count how many times I've seen people just blankly stare at them because they can't figure out how to work the Dyson ones. It's pretty hilarious!
  11. holy freakin crap batman! Do you want me to post the picture I have of Don standing right outside my car talking to the guy from the enquirer with a recorder in his hand in front of the dinosaur?! When you get a little older kid check into some pr/marketing/journalism classes. Any good PR person gives little breadcrumbs to create speculation. its called creating a "buzz", which personally, looking at this thread alone, they've done a darned good job of! I know you're new here and all so let me clue you into a few things. Se those little stats on the right over there <<< that shows the
  12. Hmm...those news articles people are posting have me intrigued. I'm just wondering how they got the info that this IS in fact a dinosaur walk-through when the announcement hasn't even been made yet. Also, I'm wondering where they get the fact that this is "the biggest attraction of its kind". I wonder if they got that from listening to the teaser video? Because if so, all he says is the 'world's largest' something something bleep bleep. He may not even be referencing the new attraction at all, since it's all out of context. He could be talking about the t-rex in the parking lot for all we know
  13. I'm just grateful that we're getting a spruced up/repaved Coney Mall and WindSeeker(which I am so excited/nervous) to ride! Anything else is just bonus for me. I think all of the complainers out there need to go read a book called The American Roller Coaster by Scott Rutherford. Gives you not only beautiful photography of some AMAZING coasters, but really makes you think and puts things into perspective. So many amusement parks were built, had their glory days, and were gone at the drop of a hat. Some were replaced by generic strip malls or even parking lots! And I'm not even talking about 'ri
  14. Well ain't you smart er sumpin?! Just kidding...you did call it! Now please predict an Intamin terracoaster for next year!
  15. I just saw that you still have my quote in your sig.....haha that was a funny convo we had that day! =)

  16. I'm pretty sure I never called RaptorGuy a crybaby. Someone else said that. I was quoting that someone on the part about him saying if he whines enough on this board he thinks things will change. And in my opinion, I did in fact see a lot of WHINING about the ERT being changed from DB/Beast to Vortex/WindSeeker. Was that not true? And I was also just stating my OPINION wondering why someone continues to post on here when they've said they won't even come to KI anymore because of Haunt..or ERT or whatever the reason is. I wasn't personally attacking anyone. No I do not know this person, I have
  17. Well, I was going to say that exact thing lol but you said it for me! I don't know why someone insists on posting on a KI thread if they vowed to never step foot in said park again. Oh well, I'm sure there will be plenty of people riding Vortex and WindSeeker to make up for his "boycott".
  18. Who cares how old Vortex is? That doesn't mean nobody cares about it. Um....exactly how old is The Beast? Racer? Pretty sure people still care about those and they are much older than Vortex. It's still a very popular ride and its popularity will most likely be increased with the new foot traffic going towards that section of the park with WindSeeker opening this year!
  19. Hmm....now the picture of the trees seems to be gone! At least it is when I click on it..... And also, does anything actually specifically say that whatever this may or may not be will even be OPENING in 2011? Or does it just say they'll announce something in 2011? Wow, that was a rambley post....
  20. I miss your beeyouteefull face :)

  21. I don't think anybody thinks it's going to be for a new ride this season. I think they're speculating about a possible 2012 attraction. I personally think they just like to do these kinds of things to sit back and laugh and watch the spittle fly and the excitement ensue.
  22. Maybe they're bringing back the antique cars and flying eagles. Jungle-y themed jeeps (ie:Jurassic Park) and pterodactyl-esque flying eagles. *crosses fingers*
  23. Okay so I was accidentally logged in under Kyle's name because I kicked him off of his computer....haha. So yeah, above post, that was me!
  24. Thanks Justin, I do what I can. It probably sounded more heated than necessary, but as I said I was replying in a different thread. But I couldn't just leave my "Barney doing the limbo down Sesame Street" unposted, that would be blasphemous. ~Ash
