    Completed it. I really appreciate the opportunity to give my opinion. Y'all are great!

    I vote for King Ding Dong. You could do a segment on his predictions for what the inside of the Rivertown Coke Freestyle stand actually looks like.

    Newly Themed Area?

    ^ Listen, you already keep the Coke Refresh stand in Rivertown closed. You're really gonna make then shut down an entire area of the park when you visit, now?

    No coasters?

    Not sure--I've heard something similar, but I've never explicitly heard the rules for that situation explained. It was definitely colder than that for Banshee's media day.

    No coasters?

    Can't speak for Banshee or Invertigo, but all the Arrow coasters (Bat, Adventure Express, and Vortex) don't operate when it's under 45┬░ out. So that's part of what was going on last night.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    A deduction: they want to sell it, but they don't have a buyer. Given what the CEO has said about cutting cost, I wouldn't expect to see it moved within the chain. I wonder who they expect to sell to. Firehawk probably costs too much to operate for a smaller park. Surely anyone who's Cedar Fair-sized or bigger either has a Flying Dutchman and knows what they're up against with them or else has been paying attention to what Cedar Fair is doing? Maybe they're looking to sell it to some up-and-coming buyer in Dubai or China.

    The marketing campaign for this new season of Doctor Who is extremely edgy. Glad you had a good time!

    Fun fact: a lot of them are very heavily based on the writings of a member here (@bkroz)! Check his stuff out here: https://www.themeparktourist.com/features/20171129/33460/theme-park-tourist-depth-collections

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    I don't think it had anything to do with quality. I think it had everything to do with operating costs, which is what the CEO said they'd be looking at when determining how to cut costs after the rough spring they had financially. Unless Flight Deck or Time Warp is pounding its way through umpteen wheels each season because of roughness, I wouldn't look for either to go anywhere. See also: HUSS Top Spins, all but one of which have disappeared from the Cedar Fair chain in the last handful of summers. I'm interested in seeing what happens to the other rides in the chain that would appear to have expensive upkeep costs, like Volcano at Kings Dominion, Sledgehammer at Wonderland, Xcelerator at Knott's, and so on.

    I got my copy of the PKI book!

    Yep! I do. It's a nice little book. Makes me nostalgic for that era.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I'm sure that would go down like any other coaster announcement: with cries of "but that's not what you promised" and "I'm never buying another pass again" and "why would they do that, there's obviously a [other model] hole in the ride lineup!"

    Yeah, that's shenanigans. The only people who think "an all-new train design" is a thing that has relevance to the average park guest is enthusiasts.

    The Firehawk back-story...

    It's not going to happen, but wouldn't it be funny if it did go to Michigan's Adventure? Then he's not technically wrong.
  14. ^ I would die happy. Especially if they did the pineapple juice floats that Disneyland does.
