  1. I have a few issues with this. First and foremost, my cash says right on it "this note is legal tender for all debts public and private" What that means is they cannot legally reject my cash payment. Next, will everything in the park be switched to a flat $ amount after tax? I can't put an exact amount on the card at a kiosk. I don't think its fair to be forced to add $10 to a card for something that costs $9.75. Will there be ways to get $ back off my card if not used or does the park get to keep that? Worse yet would be the card issuer charging me for $ deposited that I can't use during the 4 months the park is closed. Winterfest ends, park doesn't open until spring... thats more than 90 days. Just a few issues I have with cashless.
  2. Great to see Chad / the park being proactive and acknowledging the situation.
  3. There is currently a post circulating on Facebook stating that 4 seats "flew off" Orion while testing. I find this very hard to believe as there is no evidence provided. Is the park or this community aware of this "rumor"? https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10105205443277136&id=39507173&sfnsn=mo
  4. i do remember the tennis balls stuck in the chain link! I didn't realize it was there that long!
  5. I just finished the action Park documentary on HBOMax. They talked about a tank attraction that shot tennis balls and it got me thinking... Does Anybody have pictures of the "Tank Boats"? From what I remember it was an upcharge attraction where two people would sit in a boat and fire tennis balls at targets manned by guests with cannons around the perimeter. I believe it was in the area now occupied by camp snoopy. It was near what was then the turnpike ride of memory serves me correctly. I was never able to ride do it as I was a small child. I believe it operated until around 1990. I remember watching my older brother ride and shoot the cannons.
  6. Sorry for the confusion. I was more asking if there is a single rider policy because I saw some without wristbands in the fast pass lane.
  7. Announcement just came through. Orion currently down.
  8. Currently waiting for orion. Started at Diamondback splashdown at 11:50. Made it to former Firehawk photo booth at exactly 1:50. I'd say about an hour to go so a good 3 hour wait. Side note, I have seen quite a few people without wristbands entering the fast pass line. Single riders??
  9. Thanks Indy! I closed and re-opened the app and that fixed it!
  10. Hey guys, just went to the health screening in the app... I'm unable to scroll or see other "symptoms". I selected no / no and done... but did not confirm if I had completed or not. Anyone having a similar issue??
  11. I just didn't know if places like KI and CP potentially had state licensed inspectors on their payroll or not. Not sure if that's even a thing. They could not legally operate the rides without state certification so they would not open without this. This could be the reason Stricker's closed. Maybe not worth the cost of inspection in they can't open until july and have to cancel the majority of their season. Only so many weekends for private parties to be booked.
  12. I work for a travelling amusement company here in Ohio. We do church festivals, county fairs, private events ect. We have been trying to get state inspections scheduled for our rides so we can be certified and ready to go when the time comes. We have been told the Dept of Agriculture has furloughed all state inspectors until Aug 1 and no inspection will be available before that date. Can anyone confirm? How would this affect KI if they can't get the attractions inspected or certified?
  13. Id love to think Zodiac was coming back because I never got to experience it... but I really don't think that the case. Skylab was a favorite of mine, but I dont see that making a return either. My best guess is Les' Taxi (the tiques) coming back as well as a complete refurb of The Racer with RMC Topper track (which is commonly red and would look very 75'ish with new blue rails). A little paint for Vortex and maybe a flat on the flight commander pad wouldn't be a bad thing either. My dream would be to topper track one side of racer and "RMC" the other making for two distinct experiences, but I don't think they will do that. The Racer is iconic and will never have its layout or concept changed (steel vengeance style) Topper track would give the same old ride a new smoother feel and a very welcome addition.
  14. i can see the marketing now... "Banshee and The Beast" two l"worlds longest" record breaking coasters.....
