  1. I hope we get similar action in Kentucky. I went to KK for opening day and they were still running rides at half capacity and had several attractions closed. Both of these things were previously said not to be taking place by the new management so I am sure it is not by choice.
  2. What is with the 8 foot tall Bea Arthur?
  3. I tried to get a ticket but failed...maybe next year. Does anyone know how many tickets were available?
  4. I would buy some. Don't judge me. I am still salty over missing out on Vortex slice. Twice.
  5. Does anyone believe that there is a chance the park may attempt to sell these rides or are they destined for the scrap heap? The more I think about this the more upset I get.
  6. oh man...maybe next year. That would give me a good reason to go to the fair.
  7. If they make it to the online store I will pick one up. I unfortunately can not make it to the park this weekend.
  8. Has anyone put together a list of ride capacity/operations changes due to social distancing requirements? I did a quick search and could not find it myself.
  9. I got reservations for the 7th. I am hoping for a very light crowd so I can get a ride in on Orion.
  10. in banks too...I kinda want to wear one to the bank now.
  11. My Grandmother always kept plastic butter containers because of her experience with the Great Depression. You never knew whether you were opening up butter or something else entirely.
  12. I was a Club TPR member but they are not currently accepting renewals or new members...not sure why, been like that for a while. I joined that particular club not because of anything to do with Robb, they just had the right balance of price vs perks for me at the time. With the current situation with the virus I don't feel like I need a club membership now anyway because who knows what events will actually happen this year now.
  13. Last time I remember Robb being at KI was Banshee media day. If you really want to see some comedy, join his Retro Games Fan group on Facebook. He has some pretty strict guidelines to keep the content of a certain quality. If you do not abide he simply deletes your post. The real fun begins after said post is deleted the person chimes in with an ugly response to the deletion. I know a lot of folks don't like him, but my interactions with Robb have always been pleasant and I and lots of the other members of that group get a real kick out of him going at it with idiots that do not abide by the rules and talk trash.
  14. I will be getting these for sure. I have Beast, Diamondback and Banshee. Did Mystic Timbers get a model?
  15. Thank you for the report. I am hoping to make it out to KK before the end of the month to check this out for myself.
  16. That lift hill and drop was a thing of beauty. I also loved how you would see the loop right as the train left the station.
  17. A maintenance issue perhaps but ridership would not be the issue based on what I experienced. It was close to an hour wait.
  18. I do not understand the logic on removing the rapids ride. When I went a couple summers ago it was super hot and the line for the rapids ride was the longest one we waited in all day. This makes no sense. If it was immediately being replaced by another water ride with high capacity it would be ok but removing all the water rides in a park in the south is dumb.
  19. Kentucky Flyer is looking awesome. I can not wait to ride it with my daughter.
  20. I would not say Hurler was the worst I have ridden but it is certainly a LOT less forceful that Thunder Run. When I rode a couple years ago it was at least much smoother than the KD one.
  21. Fair board has ordered construction on Kentucky Flyer halted. They are claiming KK does not have rights to the land. link to press conference below. https://www.facebook.com/wave3news/videos/2163259197246669/UzpfSTE1MDU4NDQyNDk3NTczODoyMTQzNDM3NzQyMzU3MDUz/
