  1. I would suggest to never buy Fast Lane online before actually seeing the crowds in person whether at the beginning of the day or during the day. You could buy online and truly not need it. The weather could keep the crowds away, however, if it's warm enough I'd say there is a chance it'll still be busy.
  2. ^^ Cedar Fair may have gotten a discount on that color....with Valravn/Yukon Striker/Copperhead Strike! How about tye-dye TBH a yellow, green or even purple track would be great IMO.
  3. Some parks do this already...however, when you have parks like Cedar Point and Kings Island with ERT rides on different ends of the park it is kind of hard to do such a thing, especially with many different routes to those rides.
  4. I am sooooo sorry! I swore we were talking about the ones at Cedar Point!! My bad...you are correct
  5. I hope they have used all of the red paint they got on sale with Dick Kinzel as the head of Cedar Fair
  6. You enter the station for those cars in Frontier Town by crossing over the tracks on the stair case and exit the station on the opposite side of which you enter. The cars at the front of the park, you enter and exit from the same side of the station. You have a ride associate drive your vehicle from the stop sign to where they need it to go before exiting out of the station.
  7. Where Modern Thrills and Nostalgia Come Together!
  8. As of right now, I think it will be used as a Haunt maze as long as Haunt remains popular.
  9. I would love this, but it won't be a part of the park entertainment this year.
  10. The Cadillac Cars at Cedar Point near the front of the park have you enter and exit from the same side of the station.
  11. Kind of like the OTSR's on Top Thrill Dragster since it's got that steep drop after cresting the top of the ride?
  12. Chill out a bit? Excuse me for asking a question and you taking it as I’m attacking you. My bad, sorry I hurt your feelings for questioning how something could be leaked if it is available to the public. Please.
  13. How were they leaked if they were readily available to the public?
  14. It is public record. Let me clarify, I don't know if there is in-fact plans actually at the Building and Zoning department in Warren County.
  15. Files may be available for viewing..they may not..
  16. They are roughly 200 miles away....in the same state and owned by the same company.....the same company isn't necessarily going to put the same or close to the same ride product in our park as the Flagship park within a short amount of time frame since they were installed at their flagship park. Kings Island isn't owned by Six Flags....their goal is not to make both Ohio parks the same....it's not a good business model....different markets call for different things. Even outside of Cedar Point....Holiday World is the closest park with a Wing Rider...which is "the only launched wing coaster," why would KI add a wing rider with a 2nd one within ~200 miles of the park and a 3rd within ~300 miles away? Why would Kings Island get a Dive Coaster when there is one in the same state, ~200 miles away....and there are 2 others that could be visited on a day trip from the park? Why would a Flyer be added when B&M hasn't added a Flying Coaster in the United States since 2009? Why would KI add another Flying Coaster after removing one? KI is a lot closer to other parks than many realize. Cedar Fair is the ones to make the decisions, not CP and I'm certain Cedar Fair is actually concerned about over-saturating their parks/markets with the same type of experience, especially within the same state.
  17. That is not true at all...many have given reasons including things such as proximity to other like coasters, the similarities to what we already have, etc.
  18. Yeah, look through this thread....many have given all the reasons of why we think those options wouldn't work.
  19. It means that when it was filed, work will soon be starting for the 2018/2019/2020 projects. A NOC being filed means that "hey we're going to start work pending your approval of said project(s)."
  20. Last year, I started a thread for the 2018 Season for bucket list items to do a the park....I've added the list to this post for an example and will post a bucket list for 2019 a little bit later today. Feel free to post your 2019 Bucket List. Update as you complete things and/or add more if you find something else you want to do. Here was my 2018 Bucket List in no particular order: Night Ride on Firehawk Ride The Bat at night (I've ridden at dusk, but I've not done a true night ride) Ride Congo Falls Ride Race For Your Life Charlie Brown Ride White Water Canyon Play more arcade games Play at least one midway game Ride Slingshot Ride Xtreme Skyflyer See Off The Charts (Didn't see it in the past) See Jump! The Ultimate Dog Show (mainly to see a show in the International Showplace Theatre, haven't done that in a long long time) Get FunPix picture taken at the front of the park with a stranger and/or an entire family. Watch the fireworks from the Eiffel Tower Watch the fireworks from International Street Have a fireworks ride on WindSeeker (Had one at the first Coasterstock and it was a blast!) Ride Boo Blasters and don't attempt to get any points Visit Soak City more Ride Woodstock Whirlybirds (because why not?) Spend a bit of time in the evening before park close on International Street Eat at Subway with my dining plan (because Subway is expensive outside of the park) Sample all of the fudge flavors at Sweet Spot --- partially completed! Try all of the cotton candy flavors at Sweet Spot Spend a day at the park with my phone in the locker or car Feed the fish in the Oktoberfest Pond Meet at least 15 people from KIC that I don't already know Split a big funnel cake with toppings with friends Get a picture with each of the Peanuts costumed characters (those of you on here who are character escorts, make this happen please ) -- Almost completed! So again, what's your 2019 Bucket List?
  21. So I recently stopped at the GWL arcade to play, actually last weekend after we hung out , but they only have Wizard Of Oz coin pushers. Thinking more onto it, I've come to favor the Willie Wonka ones a bit more...I have noticed the plain field for the coins to be pushed off is a little bit smaller than WoZ, which I feel they have an easier chance to be pushed off (whether or not that's true), which would include the cards. I've completed more sets of cards with Willie Wonka than I ever have with WoZ, but I feel that WoZ gives better bonuses. I've never really been a big fan of the cranes, mainly because I never win lol. I remember after seeing you win a Switch game I thought to myself, "man I need to play in the arcade more, Switch games are awesome prizes!' So the following season (last year) I played more, but was a bit disappointed in the types of prizes. Opening weekend (specifically the Friday) of Winterfest, I had noticed there was an Amazon Firestick, which I have been wanting to upgrade mine, so I played some more and decided the next day to come back to get it (so I didn't have to carry it around) and I found that it was gone....I kept checking back and they never restocked it...so I have continued to grow my ticket balance. I would love to see more KI Branded items, more "popular" items such as video games, cool electronics (whether they last a year or 15) and/or just something unique.
