  1. Father's Day is also on the schedule, which you can see by going to Bring A Friend in the online ticket store. Special days are listed with a discount ticket price. Other discount bring-a-friend days may be announced as the season progresses; keep an eye on the events page on the park's website. In past years, these have been on another Sunday in June or July and on weekdays at the end of the summer season.
  2. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I have watched dead ash trees get cut down and have yet to see any shatter. The situation becomes more dangerous the longer a dead tree is left standing. The vast majority of the trees in the Beast woods that were removed were either dead or were ash trees that were likely to die in the future. A boom lift sitting next to the ride looks more like maintenance than construction to me.
  3. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    ^^ The season drink plan is only good for soft drinks, but there are plenty of options other than soda. I really like the blueberry pomegranate Vitaminwater that's at the Coney BBQ fountain. ^ The dining plan prices are currently the same price online and at the park. The online processing fee is $0.99 for orders that only contain food voucher(s). Since you're going to the park right now, I would recommend buying it there so they can make sure it gets added to your pass immediately.
  4. Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    Hours at each location vary, but the restaurants on International Street generally stay open until the park closes. Festhaus and Reds Hall of Fame Grille usually close an hour before the park does.
  5. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    ^ Try logging out and then logging back in with Tapatalk. This worked the last time people were experiencing a similar issue.
  6. I would avoid the hotels at the Kings Dominion exit. There are better hotels for less a short drive away. Personally, I've had good stays at both of the Comfort Suites hotels on the north side of Richmond and at the Sleep Inn on E Parham Rd in Richmond. These locations are a relatively easy drive to KD, and I've usually found good deals.
  7. Are segways allowed in the park?

    Personal mobility devices are allowed into the park, though there may be safety restrictions in certain areas. A frequent guest of Cedar Point, affectionately known among enthusiasts as Mr. Segway, is known to use one to get around the park. Echoing teenageninja, definitely call in advance and stop at Guest Services upon arrival. Segways used for recreation wouldn't be allowed into the park.
  8. Dorney Park?

    Newly acquired parks and a large debt had a way of changing priorities at post-2006 Cedar Fair.

    It's not just posted warnings; see also the clause about behaving in any manner which may contribute to the injury of oneself or others.
  10. Competition is good, but overbuilding Geauga Lake was decidedly not awesome. It was a big factor in the Six Flags bankruptcy and the eventual demise of that park.
  11. April 14, 2018: VortexBFF's Favorite Opening Day by far!

    That was indeed an error with the KIC-hosted image caching server, which I just fixed. Thanks for the heads up!

    The law in question is ORC 1711.551. Riders are required both to follow posted directions and to not act in any manner that could cause injury. http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/1711.551 Are riders routinely cited? No, but it would depend on the circumstances, whether it was a repeat offense, and the behavior of the individual guest. However, if a guest's camera or loose article would injure another guest, a criminal citation (in addition to park penalties and possible civil lawsuits) would be extremely likely.
  13. The Racer on Opening Day 2018

    Blue Racer was early on Saturday, though it didn't stay open all day with the very light crowds. It did indeed receive track work over the off-season; I noticed a lot of new wood after the turn-around on Red Racer. When combined with new track it received prior to last season, it's a substantial improvement. Great to see maintenance taking care of it year after year!
  14. Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    The taste more resembles a homemade recipe than typical mac & cheese found at restaurants. I really liked it, though my serving was a bit too dry and could have used more cheese. It's much harder to deliver a consistent product when you're using ingredients (eg. natural cheese) that don't mix together easily, especially in the quantities demanded in a theme park setting. Everything else I got was exceptional. The smoked tri-tip is currently my favorite entrée; the generous portion I received was tender and well-seasoned, and it was obvious from the color that it had been smoked a long time. My favorite side was the baked beans, which are flavored with Coney BBQ pulled pork - very nice if you're ordering a different entrée. I really like having "real" mac & cheese at the park, so I hope they get the procedure for that perfected!

    The "no photography" rule is posted on the safety information sign outside each ride, which riders are bound to by Ohio Revised Code.
