  1. I think that we should call it by its proper name: The McCluskey Chevrolet Fast Lane.
  2. As a patron, do you not accept all risk and liability of said Boo Fest when you purchase your ticket/pass and walk in the gate?
  3. I don't understand how this helps anything. If I start in line with my group of friends we will all have the proper numbers, but at any point during my wait I could just leave and come back and still have the ticket to give to the employee. Tell me if I am missing something.
  4. That makes sense, but it seems to me if the crew is not flying the lift will be crawling. Sent from my SM-T210R using Tapatalk
  5. I thought that we decided we were going to refer to them as the driver.
  6. It looks like that might just be right.
  7. As for the way Kings Island does it, as I worked Diamondback and often was at co-dispatch (that green button near row 16), we were trained to not hit that button until the driver (yes Driver beep beep!!) gave the all clear. I'm pretty sure the button being pressed down on (HTCO can clear this up for me as he worked at Diamondback more recent than I have) doesn't let the panel know the button is pressed. The driver's dispatch buttons and the co-dispatch has to be pressed at the same time or within 3-5 seconds (can't remember) in order to dispatch the train or the ride would set up. It didn't work as the "thumbs up" for the clear....we had to get the clear from the station floor, give the high clear and announce clear so the driver (yes, beep beep ) would know we were ready to dispatch to give the all clear. At Diamondback, there is a 7 second time out, and the panel does have an idicator light as to when the co-dispatch button is pressed. And you are correcet, you're supposed to wait to hit the button until everyone including the driver has given the clear.
  8. I concur, but it is just something that I have picked up over the season, that I worked there.
  9. I believe that in theory this will work, it'll be cool to see. I just have a hard time beliving that they have a higher therotical capacity then Diamondback. It just seems that the restriants are a lot more simple and quick over at Diamondback.
  10. I would like to know how the co-dispatch is going to set-up. Because the entire load side appears to be a blind spot for the driver. Does anyone know how they set it up for similar Beemer's?
  11. I wonder if the trains got lost on their way here. They are running a little late. They should be here any day now right?
  12. I believe that the lift chain motor is already installed. I could be wrong though it wouldn't be the first nor the last time.
  13. I completely agree, if there is going to be a policy then it has to be enforced 100%. I have sat in front of Firehawk telling people they can't bring their stuff and the moment you are trying to explain it to one group of guests another flies right past you. Then the issue becomes chase them down and let the next group of 5 get though or let them go and hope for the best. It may be tough on staffing but I don't think two greeters is such a bad idea.
  14. Well, first you have to prove that you are worthy so, you must be able to run from Diamondback to Firehawk in less than 30 seconds. Then, it is nescarry to wait in a hot queue line for 2 hours straight and last but not least pay the nominal $1,000 fee. Or you could do it on line for like 90 bucks.
  15. First, the station is two floors and that picture is only showing the bottom floor, because the second is not yet built, so it is impossible to say there will not be any dropping floor. Moreover, is it required to have one? Does Gatekeeper have one? Raptor?
  16. If you are volunteering at a festival, see someone smoking in the midway and almost walk up to them and tell them that they can't smoke there. If you are half asleep thinking about dispatching a train and you put your thumb up and say "clear!"
  17. The original marketing slogan was "C'mon get happy."
  18. I do not see this could someone please link it for me
  19. You might be a KI addict if you have the web cams booked marked and they are a part of the websites you check every morning.
