  1. Someone posted this on facebook and I recognized the location pretty quick. I looked around and didn't see it posted yet, so here it is: Sorry if its already been posted -Dbfan
  2. This exhibit won't come cheap, and I was really hoping for something great next year, but with WindSeeker and Dino Alive, I don't see another large investment on the park soon. Am I the only one who wasnt interested in Animatronics as a kid? Never really was a fan, but I know many are today.
  3. Look on the bright side, The Beast had a great run, and the record for the longest and highest wooden rollercoasters in the world were both held by our park. The Beasts record held far longer than I imagined, with most other coaster records demolished in the 2000's, The Beast's stood. We still will have the 2nd longest, and (Depending on the status of SOB and the height of this new ride) the tallest wooden coaster.
  4. 680 foot Ferris Wheel??? Wow. This park has high intentions. And The Beast won't lose its record until 2013.

    Simple rule about posting, think about quality over quantity.
  6. I'll be the first to say it...I don't like it. At first when I heard of the idea, I thought it could work, but after looking at the concept art and reading more about it I can't seem to find a point to the exhibit. For one, if you decide to "ride" it, you are stuck inside for 15-20 minutes. I don't know about you but thats a long time to look at orangutans. Another thing is that the zoo, if continuing the tradition of its other rides, will charge extra for this. How many people would really spend money to go up and see orangutans from a skyride when you can view them from down below? An
  7. As long as it changes colors im happy.
  8. I always remembered going to shows in there but I could never remember where it was, thanks!
  9. Fixing a broken ride in the offseason and having it ready for opening day... What a concept!
  10. I knew something was missing from FOF when I went a week ago. Thanks for pointing out the tower.
  11. I just saw some pictures in the other thread of its original paintjob, and it looks fantastic. Really as long as they paint the track and different color than the supports im happy.
  12. To hope that SOB, one of my favorite rides, continues to operate, and if it gets altered, that it doesn't get altered too much.
  13. First ride on DB First Halloween Haunt Visiting with a friend who moved away 2 years ago Having a great time at the park every time I went. Can't wait until 2011!
  14. I love Test Track, and this ride looks just as good, but I don't really like the name. It just seems too long.
  15. Hello Everyone. Last Friday I visited my first haunt, and I had a great time. Im copying Mcsalsa's way of TR's, and I will be doing this in sections by rides/haunts. These are all my opinions, so don't hate. Haunt #1 Urgent Scare So before this trip, the only really haunted maze I had gone to was the yearly Childrens Museum one in Indianapolis, so I wasn't sure if I would enjoy these mazes. I decided to start the night with Urgent Scare to see how it went, and plan the rest of my night from that experience. We got to the park at around 6:30, and after 30 minutes of waiting we entered.
  16. I went on Friday and saw the wrestlers. They put on a good show. It was barely bloody at all, funny at sometimes, and very well acted. A kid near us threw an ice cube that almost reached the stage, and within five seconds there was security talking to him. KI did a really good job, and Festhaus looks great.
  17. No, its completely optional. They didn't even add much to the maze. They charge for 3d glasses on boo blasters, are you going to stop going on days that is open too?
  18. What most people were doing Friday Night is once they exited, handed them to people near the front. It worked really well and the person working the front didn't seem to care. I would say half the people were getting glasses then passing them on when they were done. PS: They don't add that much to the maze, they are better than nothing but I wouldn't say its a must have.
  19. I always get pirctures taken of me at the front gate and a piece of paper shoved into my hand. Ive never found a way to evade the photographers.
  20. Looks like an amazing ride. I have to agree with the name though. Even Cedar Fair has more interesting names.
  21. So I got it all planned out and after 12 or so years of being a KI fanatic, I am going to my first haunt. I have two questions before I go: 1: Im not a big haunt guy, but I want to get at least two in. Ive been reading reviews, but im still split over the two I am going to do (I may do more if time persists) Right now im looking at Urgent Scare, but im not sure of the other, what, in your opinion, are the best two mazes KI does? 2: I will be there on a Friday night, do you suggest going to the mazes first as soon as they open or waiting until later? Thanks, Dbfan
  22. I havnt seen any photots from that, but its looking great. If it turns out successful, I think SOB would be a great fit for the treatment.
  23. And the ride wait times? Ive never been to Haunt, and have no interest in any of the mazes.
  24. Sorry to barge in on your topic and ask this, but I dont see a point asking a similar question on a new topic. Is it any less crowded Friday Nights? I have a chance to go on a friday, and im more of a rides type guy, so will the rides be packed or just the haunts?
