  1. Any info on dates for when they are holding auditions for the entertainment department?
  2. What differentiates wing coaster track from other B&M types sans dive coasters? I don't see a difference between wing track and the other types that are of similar dimensions.
  3. I wouldn't underestimate UC's presence in the region. They're responding to NKU's growth by investing a ton in expanding to accommodate their ever growing enrollment. A large chunk of UC grads stay in the tri-state area, too. In terms of sports, Fickell has the football program in a very good position even if he leaves and Brannen has a bright future with men's basketball. Women's basketball and baseball are taking off, too.
  4. That hill before the helix is a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be. The helix will probably be pretty massive, too.
  5. Is this a thread based on someone not knowing coaster element terminology or is this a trick question thread?
  6. Arrow- Magnum B&M- Diamondback Intamin- Millennium Force Wooden- Beast Vekoma- Firehawk
  7. I'm pretty sure all of that will come across as a foreign language to SIX management.
  8. I'm staying in Port Clinton for sure for CP and Waldameer. I love the place a ton (like as much love as I have for Gatlinburg and Hershey PA). Its smaller and less confusing to drive through than Sandusky for me. I've always stayed in Port Clinton for CP trips, whether with family or solo trips. I also like driving along the lake going to PC and the drive to and from CP. I usually stay at the Super 8 in PC. I'm absolutely doing FLP at CP mostly because I rarely go, but also especially now because I'm wary on how them introducing Gold Passes affects their attendance. I am disappointed the fantastic pizza restaurant in Muskegon I discovered closed a few weeks after I went the last time for water damage. It was rated in the top 5 of Michigan's best pizza places. I also want to spend a bit more time on Lake Michigan than I did the previous visit. Some areas around Muskegon are quite scenic. I could use advice for lodging and things to do around Indiana Beach as well as any little tidbits about the park not apparent at first glance (particularly in-park dining), especially because, like its Santa Claus, IN counterpart, appears to be in the middle of nowhere. Just to be clear- CP, MIA and Indiana Beach are staple parks on this trip. Waldameer is dependent on a few factors and a very likely visit (especially a re-visit to that amazing diner down the hill) and SFGAm is a possibility, but very, very unlikely. I would ideally want to make that a 2 day stay in Chicago and would obviously plan this trip around when the Reds go there if at all possible. Also, if ACE (the coaster club I belong to) brings back the free SIX tickets with memberships, I'd be more interested in doing SFGAm. I am also scheduling this trip around my community band schedule since with me being the likely only alto sax and with all the work I put in my sax last summer, I just put in a request to the director to throw me some solos this summer, so I would have to get to all the concerts. Won't know that until late-April or early-May.
  9. Didn't expect that speed hill to have such a nice curvature to it. It's gonna have a nice pop of air for sure.
  10. If the rate they're going continues and the weather keeps going like it is, I'm guessing they'll be finished with track work by mid-February. The only elements left are a camel back hill, the helix, and the curve up to the brakes.
  11. The DB cam is crystal clear now with the rain going on in Kings Mills at the moment. No signs of demo yet.
  12. You forgot Steel Force and Mamba.
  13. 1. Some things are allowed to be assumed 2. KI allowed O'Rourke to share demo photos of Firehawk and SOB's demo was also filmed I'm 99.99% sure there'll be photos.
  14. Off The Charts! is a staple if I go. Just see my member title and signature to know why.
  15. You really think KI won't be taking photos of The Vortex demo? C'mon.
  16. On the off chance I have more money to work with that I thought, there is an extremely slight chance I may add SFGAm to this trip. I didn't realize how close I am to Chicago going to Indiana Beach. If I could pair that with a Reds game in Chicago, I'd be even happier (and get me some legit Chicago style pizza). I would probably scratch Waldameer and do only 1 day at CP in that instance as well. That's all extremely doubtful though. If I do the original plan, I may stay in Port Clinton for both CP and Waldameer.
  17. I'll be honest- I don't see the point in making a giga coaster use terrain all that well.
  18. I usually brag about my future summer's plans this time of year, and last year I was unemployed, so not looking for that big a trip this summer. Likely doing Holiwood Nights again, mostly exclusively because Voyage got re-tracked, but I have a decent trip planned along side it. Still looking into the timing as I have to wait for my community band schedule to come out, but likely late-June/early-July or late-July/early-August, I will probably be making a return to the northern Ohio and Michigan parks with Cedar Point and Michigan's Adventure. I will be adding 1 or 2 parks this time as I also want to return to Erie to get in Waldameer again and I'm also looking into my first visit to Indiana Beach since its kind of on the way to or from Muskegon. Depending on costs and/or length of the trip, I may omit Waldameer. I need no info on 3 of the parks, but info on Indiana Beach would be helpful, mostly lodging and overlooked things to make sure to hit/eat when I'm at and around IB. I already know my game plans for Muskegon, Erie and Sandusky/Port Clinton. Just have to decide the route and park order. Part of me wants to save CP for last, but I'll forego that if the routing works better otherwise. I'll likely be doing 1 day visits to MIA, IB and Waldameer and it'll be a coin toss for if I want to do 1 or 2 days at the Point. I'm planning on FLP for CP for sure.
  19. The turn around appears to be a bit tighter in diameter and much higher banked than what was shown in the renderings.
  20. ^Aside from a few firsts (Magnum, MF, TTD), total track length (steel and overall), and all the hybrid records with SV, CP doesn't have a lot of the records it used to have anymore. KI might legitimately have more current records than CP right now.
  21. My 2019 was a bit slow. Spent all last year unemployed which affected my park visits, though I did make it to the park about 5-6 times and did my first Holiwood Nights (which I'm planning on returning in 2020 with the Voyage re-tracking). I am planning a trip in northern Ohio/Michigan this summer- likely CP, MIA and either/or Waldameer and Indiana Beach. I hope to get to KI more than I have the last few seasons, too.
  22. You should still be able to catch a glimpse of it on the DB cam.
  23. I'd say people were more excited due to it being the park's first B&M and the fact that enthusiasts weren't whining over the stats. I also think it won't suffer in its lines as much as many on here think it will with Orion's presence.
  24. I'll probably miss opening day this season. Pretty hard pressed to get weekends off at the Clifton Skyline and I already need a Sunday off around then for one of my concerts.
  25. We should do a KIC takeover of Diamondback and yell that towards the houses at the top of the first hill.
