  1. It couldn't have came at a better time, they finally won last night and now hold a record of 1-4. I am a big Cyclones fans so have known about the Jungle Kats playing at USBA. I was wondering what attendance was last night with the CJ bobbleheads.
  2. Not until the early nineties did I first go, KIC through PKIUnlimited.com ... I had my posts transfered over when KIC took over. Hence why I've been registered here since November of 04.
  3. Jars of Clay has been one of my favorite bands since their debut-album in the mid-nineties ... however they haven't came back to KI since like 2001. I guess they have just dropped off of the Christian festival radar even though they played Carowins. Out of the list now David Crowder Band would be worth seeing, but I doubt I'll go to it. DCB will be at Bogart's later as well.
  4. Uly is usually a good month to go. Not many crowds in Uly. Also, your signature reminded me, Back To The Furture is a great movie.
  5. I went today also, for four hours. Left early due to the 96 degree heat. As expected on a Tuesday, not much of a crowd. The Monster was down the whole time.
  6. Food prices aren't dragging the whole attendance or park down, even though they are and have been rediculously high for a long time. It's a tired topic, really, and it's never going to get better.
  7. To keep the spirt of old PKI drinking cups/shot glasses/mugs mentioned above, there is now an Outer Limits shotglass auction going on: http://cgi.ebay.com/Paramounts-Kings-Islan...1QQcmdZViewItem
  8. I also haven't posted in a long while ... but looks like the whole gang's back for this thread.
  9. Basically. You're only going to be able to find that kind of merchandise in a rare eBay auction.
  10. That "X logo" at the end isn't a logo, it is the Nickelodeon time capsule that was buried in the ground at Nickelodeon Studios in 1992. This was shown on live TV. It is supposedly going to be opened in 2042 (50 years later.) In the capsule is "things that were important to kids in 1992 as a gift to kids of the future."
  11. That IS a cool pennat though, Dastardly and Muttley under the Tower with the old-school logo. Poor Hannah-Barbera.
  12. Two show's I've never heard of being called "Classic." Hmmm, how the term classic must have fallen. Uh, here's a question. How do you know it has been "torn down?" Did you see it from a news article or something? I had heard in recent years that they stopped doing the tours and it wasn't upket because they didn't film any live-action shows there, and the slime geyser was removed years ago.
  13. From what I always heard, these last couple of years the studios have been in bad shape. They stopped tours some time ago, and it wasn't well upkept. Probably because they had no use for it anymore. Their main focus now is the Nicktoons, not all the classic live action shows that were taped at the Studios. Sad news. What will happen to the time capsule?
  14. The last time I checked the perimeter around the base divided by 3.14 multiplied by the areas around Action Zone, add that to the square feet of River Town and then divide by the circumfrance of the extra land to find the equation for 3945.42, find the volume of that multiplied by the square foot of Action Theater so that gives you 3.342.242, then you'll need to subtract parking lot square foot and divide 92.13 and get the equation multiplied by 10,636.
  15. Ah, yes, then that is about the exact same thing that Wally World has, like I mentioned above, although it didn't have things hanging. About how long ago was it? I've never seen any pictures.
  16. PKI used to have something like that. Really? I'm not saying you're wrong, I just don't remember. What was it like?
  17. I'm sure he has some good Beast footage to add also.
  18. "Do you really think" anyone cares that you're overeacting? Of course everybody isn't going to have the same opinion as you and like the name. People have different opinions. It's what makes the world go around. Just because people don't like the name doesn't mean they "aren't going to let their kids on it" or "not come to the park." No one is saying that. Some of us just might not like the name.
  19. They have something similar to these at the small Wally World park in Liberty, Indiana, I think they're just called "battle boats" or something along those lines, but it is one person inside the ship and shoot balls out with a net surrounded the pool, and they also have guns outside the net where people can put in quarters (like WWC's fountains) and shoot balls at the ships.
  20. I thought that PKI was getting rid of Hanna-Barbera. Can you elaborate on the ride? Also, how is SDATHC remaining the same? It can't be in NU and there is no more H-B Land. Will it be in IS? Thanks, Italian Chef Yeah, HB Land gets revamped and replaced with Nick Central, and then a Hanna-Barbera replaced SpongeBob 3D at Action Theater? That makes about as much since as the sun suddenly crashing into the Earth.
  21. The Scientific Committee on Tobbacco and Health has proved time after time again that passive smoke increases the risk of lung cancer and/or heart disease, in both cases by at least 25% at the minimum. The SCOTH (Scientific Committee on Tobacco and Health) is made up of 15 of the most eminent medical scientists in Britian and the United States, and proved this as a counter against a smoker's group who challenged the government to prove the second hands moke is harmful. The facts are right in front of you. You cannot honestly think that passive smoke is harmless when hundreds of people exposed of it from early childhood die from lung cancer and heart disease who otherwise had no problems! The facts are there, there is no getting around it.
  22. Wow, you must be pretty jaded if you're one of those people who buy into the whole "second hand smoke isn't bad" slur. Lung cancer & heart disease are 2 of the many common serious risks people exposed to second hand smoke have suffered from. Backed by over 2 decades of scientic research, there is "no safety" in second hand smoke. Children frequently exposed to second hand smoke early in their life can progess to have asthma attacks. Once when I argued with someone about this they said that Penn & Teller proved that second hand smoke is harmless. If you are like this person and your rebuttle is similar, I would like to wish you, among other things, getting your health advice from stage musicians.
  23. Why would they open FOF as the only major attraction open during WinterFest? Can you imagine the crowd for WinterFest with ONE roller coaster operating?
