  1. What will replace Dinos Alive?

    KI has no need for employee housing. CP needs it because their seasonal staff is mostly college students from all over the place, including international workers. KI, on the other hand, mostly relies upon local high school (and some college) students.
  2. The spin wheel for Fast Lane.

    Originally, the wheels were as you said. Recently (I first noticed this in 2017, but having not had a pass in 2016, it may have started then without me knowing about it) they changed the wheels so that every space awards a one-time Fast Lane pass, but most are for a specific ride, ranging from big rides like Mystic Timbers and Beast to small flats like Monster and Dodgems. IIRC, there is still (at least as of the last time I saw the wheel last summer) one "wild card" space on the wheel that lets you pick the ride.
  3. I'm not sure the full day Friday ticket is worth it unless you're getting there in the morning. It's roughly three hours from the Cincy area (I don't know what portion of Cincy you live in), plus assume an hour for the lunch detour, means you'd get there about 3pm CT if you leave Cincy at noon ET. A regular ticket can enter the park at 4:30pm CT, so you're paying an extra $23 for an extra 90 minutes in the park if you buy all day Friday.
  4. The spin wheel for Fast Lane.

    I've always spun the wheel myself, and witnessed the same for other players, even this season. Sounds like you got an operator on a power trip. Played correctly*, the wheel game is a game of skill, since the strength you put into the spin ultimately determines where it stops (hence the rule on the sign that the wheel must make at least one complete revolution to count). The operator spinning for you takes away your opportunity to use skill and turns it into a game of chance. *I've never been any good at the skill portion, which is why I'm trying to kick the habit.
  5. Lion Country Safari Mauling: An Untold Story

    Way more often that it appears to the unaware user. Warning: rant ahead. I hate, hate, HATE that Google Maps satellite view always defaults to showing 3D constructions, with no way to change that default permanently on the web. What this does is show the latest imagery that has 3D graphics available for everything, with all newer imagery ignored because they haven't been fully 3D-ified. If you turn 3D off (which SHOULD be the default, but Google in their infinite wisdom gives us no way to change that default on the web) by opening the menu in the upper left and clicking "3D on", you will actually get up-to-date imagery that you SHOULD be given in the first place that shows a completed Mystic Timbers and also shows the Island Smokehouse under construction, indicating that it is from spring 2017. </rant>
  6. I propose getting a cabin at Lake Rudolph for all seven of us.
  7. I bought my ticket yesterday. This will be my first time... at HoliWood Nights since 2013, at Holiday World on a public operating day since Thunderbird announcement day in 2014, and at Holiday World period since 2015 (for the Bert the Conqueror TV shoot, so yes, I have ridden Thunderbird). Who else from KIC is going? In the past I've gotten my own lodging, but this time I am interested in splitting a room/RV/cabin/whatever with others to save money. I would vastly prefer to be very close to the park; this means Santa's Lodge and Lake Rudolph are my preferences. I want to have my lodging figured out and booked by the end of February, and preferably the end of January. Who has space in their group? I don't mind sharing a bed or sleeping on a sofa bed or air mattress. My ticket is the all day Friday option, so I probably won't be carpooling down there and back unless others have purchased the same ticket.
  8. The spin wheel for Fast Lane.

    Shhhhhhh. I'm trying to kick the habit. Seriously though, they are good to play on the really, really busy days when you don't want to wait in any of the lines. Just don't spend too much money on them, mkay?
  9. Official: WinterFest 2017

    I swear that frame was NOT there when I was moving through the video one frame at a time before. It jumped straight from 4:30 with no writing to 4:50 with the completed writing. Now that I look again, the 4:40 frame is there now and shows two people with the writing partially complete. Again, that was not there before. YouTube is apparently doing weird things.

    I meant that you missed capturing it, as in you just didn't get that frame. I didn't mean to imply that you got it but left it out.
  11. Official: WinterFest 2017

    I watched that video frame by frame, and GIGA appeared between 4:30 PM and 4:50 PM on 12/30 (closing day). A shame that you missed the 4:40 PM frame, else we might have been able to see the culprit in action.
  12. January trip to California

    I'd love to join you, but unfortunately there's zero chance since it would interfere with my college class schedule.
  13. FastLane Plus Add-On for $500

    There's already a thread about this (although it was buried on page 2):

  15. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Spotted on the Mystic Timbers webcam just now (hat tip to Koaster Kids who posted about it on Facebook): Note that the spot that says "GIGA" is currently off-limits to the public. So who put it there and what does it mean?
