  1. ^ Sorry dude. I just thought any alterations of a roller coaster being the layout or trains, it would ruin the ACE status. Now would it be different if say they added a new hill in the layout?
    From what I understand, a Coaster Landmark (which is what The Racer and The Beast are) don't have any set criteria besides the requirement of being a notable coaster historically. A Landmark can be completely demolished and the award won't be rescinded (see Big Dipper at Geauga Lake, which still has Landmark status).

    Coaster Classic status is what can be rescinded for modifications to a coaster, and those criteria are specific to seating. Neither coaster qualifies for Classic status as is due to the trains.

    2020 season passes went on sale today for the two Schlitterbahn parks now owned by Cedar Fair. Payment plans are being offered for the first time at those parks, but (as of now) only single-park passes are being offered.  https://schlitterblog.com/get-a-2019-2020-season-pass-for-16-a-month/

    No word on whether any Cedar Fair passes will be valid at Schlitterbahn parks for 2020.

    And now there is word. CF Platinum passes will get you into Schlitterbahn Galveston and New Braunfels starting January 7. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/tickets-passes/season-passes

    The KC location isn't mentioned, most likely because they don't own it yet. Although if they do buy it they won't reopen it, they'll just repurpose what they can elsewhere and probably sell the land to a developer.

  3. Went to McDonalds and there seems to be some sort of promotion going on with Cedar Fair and McDonalds. I didn't get a large drink, but the cups seem to be valid for a discount at Cedar Fair parks. I saw a KI logo and what I thought was a WWK logo, which makes no sense as Dorney doesn't charge separate admission and the one at Geauga Lake is gone. I'm guessing it was Michigan's Adventure given the similar word lengths.


    Edit: Found the press release! https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2018/may/stop-by-mcdonald’s-to-save-usd20-off-admission-to-kings-island

    Basically the cup is available at Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana stores and gives you $20 off at KI and CP, and $6 at MA. Those are the prices I thought I saw originally (and why I thought WWK made sense at first). 

  4. ^ touché, but only partly.

    I could also get all pedantic and physicsy and say white is not a color becuase it does not contain a specific wavelength. But I won't do that. :)

    White is all the colors, as it reflects all visible light wavelengths. Black reflects very few in most cases, but there's now black materials that reflect nearly zero light. This is additive color.


    In subtractive color however, it's reversed. White is the absence of color, while black is every color combined. Try mixing

  5. I would like to nominate "malem" to

    I'm interested myself but I know that there is people who deserve it more than me! I'm pretty much on the site daily, I have stopped typing some post because I felt they got rude. And if you use a lot of vulgar language/trolling you will get banned (there are exceptions) And if you post something that is VERY rude or violate the TOS, I will give a heads up in the form of a PM

    Just promise us you won't moderate on bumpy roads! ;)


    I'd nominate myself, but there's already so many qualified members who have thrown their hats in the ring. Best of luck to everyone! :)

    Sometimes things are said for marketing purposes; other times for legal purposes.  Just like keeping hands down for KI photo shoots are for "aesthetics" ;)


    I am sure legal would not want out there that the reason they switched it was because they were violating ORC...


    This makes me wonder: why do they allow people to have their hands up? Since the rides state to keep every part of your body in the car at all times, couldn't they be held liable for that if someone gets injured on a ride?


    I'm guessing the reason they don't enforce it is much like the reason for not enforcing jaywalking: way too many people do it. Yet speeders still get pulled over even when they're going with the flow of traffic.
