We have done a forum update that changed and added a lot of new and exciting features. During this update, we had to remove and rebuild the KICentral themes "Bright" and "Dark." Therefore your theme selection has been reset and you will need to reselect your theme again.

  1. What could 2018 bring KI

    One year recently, they did an announcement on the Saturday of closing weekend. Of course, closing weekend is a lot later in the year now than it was then, but it's something to think about.
  2. Awesome! Looks like a lot more KICers were in the park yesterday than I thought. There was a decent-sized KIC group there most of the day; here's four of us around lunchtime: I'm the one holding my wrist, second from viewer's left. Did you see us at any point yesterday?
  3. Prize giveaway cruise (scam?)

    Yep. Our home number was in the database, so my dad filed a claim.
  4. My guess (having not yet ridden White Water Canyon this year) is that White Water Canyon riders are far more likely to notice Mystic Timbers than Mystic Timbers riders are to notice White Water Canyon. So there is interaction, but only from one side for the most part.
  5. Will Diamondback always be the tallest at KI?

    @VortexBFForever would probably like to have a word with you about this statement.

    Cue Goble melt down in 3, 2, 1... The ONLY park that could get away with that in my book would be Holiday World.
  7. Really? It seems to me that the Mystic Timbers line moves faster than the Diamondstack line.
  8. How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    IIUC, there is a button in the drive box that the driver presses for each empty seat as the train is being dispatched. The computer also counts the number of trains dispatched. The number of riders is then calculated as (number of trains dispatched) × (number of seats per train) − (number of times empty seat button was pressed). The real question is how they determine which individual rider on the train is the millionth. In reality, they're all riding simultaneously, so aren't they really all the co-millionth riders? jcgoble3, co-two-millionth rider on Banshee
  9. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    I believe they open at the same time as the waterpark itself.

    Ya think?
  12. Whither Conneaut Lake Park Now?

    After Decades Of Decline And Disrepair, Conneaut Lake Park Is Turning A Profit http://wesa.fm/post/after-decades-decline-and-disrepair-conneaut-lake-park-turning-profit#stream/0 Wonderful to see the park rebounding so nicely from bankruptcy.

    I don't know. I have an appointment scheduled for tomorrow afternoon, but it's one that is easily rescheduled should an announcement be announced. Still, the more notice I can give the person I'm meeting with, the better.
  14. The Amusement Park Railroad Thread

    So it's mainly for children and ADA access. Interesting. As for your talk about real cabooses on freight trains, I've seen the inside of one. The Greene County Historical Society maintains an original caboose (manufactured in 1937, I believe) on display at the Xenia Station bike hub in Xenia. The caboose is quite popular with kids at the playground adjacent to it. My dad, in addition to being the GCHS's vice president, is also on their Railroad Display Committee, which directly performs maintenance on the caboose, and loves explaining what everything is to the little kids, so I've heard his spiels multiple times. There isn't a set schedule for opening the caboose to the public, but my dad will usually open it up for a little bit anytime he goes down there to work on it, and it's usually open for any major festival downtown (such as First Fridays). I don't know where you live, but if you're ever in the Xenia area, go check it out. It's at the corner of South Detroit St. and Home Ave., just a few blocks south of the center of town.

    Yeah, the problem with having the Smokehouse in Soak City is that it's not available when the waterpark isn't open, which means most of the spring season, the whole fall season, and later in the evenings in the summer. I'd love to be able to eat that pulled pork and corn pudding at Haunt, and the pulled pork at Reds Grille doesn't seem like the same.
