  1. A KI blog post covered the meanings of the license plates and the homage to the Zodiac on the new antique cars ride. One thing I was surprised that it did not mention was that the name "Peters" on one of the advertisements is a reference to the former Peters Cartridge factory located just outside the park.
  2. The location of the exit ramp...?
  3. Yeah about that...apparently the guy who shot these originally was a bit of a creep and liked to film girls. I've been informed that girls are pretty much the only thing on the Coney reel. Not worth bothering with! As for the KI footage, you'll be seeing it soon enough in the upcoming #ki50movie.
  4. Not stuck inside - both films are intact. The problem was that the projector needed a new drive belt, and our replacement belt ended up partially melting and eventually broke from the heat of the lamp.
  5. Resurrecting this thread...I still have both reels and am preparing to get them digitized. Unfortunately more than half of the Coney reel is filled with St. Patrick's Day Parade and family picnic stuff. Whoever the camera operator in question was sure had a thing for mini skirts. Kind of creepy actually. Unfortunately, due to a belt-related incident involving my projector, I still haven't been able to see the rest of it. Who knows how much actual Coney footage is on there. The KI reel, however, is well worth checking out. Stay tuned...
  6. Pretty sure I visited a Kiddie Hawk in North Carolina one time.
  7. Every roller coaster is to be renamed Little Bill's Giggle Coaster. The parking lot is to be renamed Top Cat's Taxi Jam. That's all.
  8. From what I've heard about the condition of the Grand Carousel, that part of the video where vines overgrow the horses and such might actually happen.
  9. Announcement this week?? Choo choo, all aboard Johnny's Little Red Hype Choo-Choo Train.
  10. A bit late to this topic. The arcade/midway area has been re-arranged, with several games removed - Bowler Roller, Poster Dart, and Balloon Dart if memory serves - and others taking their place. Notably, the number of Skee Ball machines has been halved, but they are now more visible (facing the restrooms/Scrambler in the middle of the midway). Presumably this was due to the poor reliability that the machines experienced last season. Many complaints were voiced about missing balls, undispensed tickets, and eaten tokens. But hopefully that is all better now. Additionally, there's a large inflatable ride/game in the middle of the arcade game section (the covered area where picnic tables are/were). I'm not entirely sure how it works but it seems to involve jumping over an inflatable arm and not falling. I'm not sure what the official name for it is, but the games trailer known by some as "The Pit" now features a second Duck Pond game, as I was told. The original one in the midway was a HUGE hit with younger kids, so I hope that this other location succeeds as well.
  11. It's a rare occurrence that a trespasser armed with nothing but a camera will be given jail time. I have heard of a few tickets being given out, but those are rare as well. 95% of the time, police and security do not care about someone who is doing no harm to their property. Thank you (and Terpy too) for the legal advice. I'll pass the advice along to fellow UER folk.
  12. As is disobeying the speed limit, among other things. If you (or anyone else) does that on the way up to KI, then you're just as much of a no-good dirty criminal as I am. Now, back on topic...
