KIC Tourist (1/13)



  1. In case this hasn't been posted, Stricker's Grove will be open on August 14th. This is one of only a few times a year that the park opens. For those who haven't visited this park yet, here is a chance to see how a small park thrives in the shadow of PKI.
  2. School of Rock is a fun movie and I do not even like most modern rock. I think it will fit well with PKI. Yes, PKI needs a Star Trek ride. I am somewhat shocked it hasn't happened yet. I think a Star Trek Inverted Coaster form B&M would be neat or they could go with Star Trek: Flight of Fear.
  3. The Scrambler isn't going anywhere, in fact, according to one of the owners of Stricker's Grove, the state of Ohio ordered modifications to be made to update all Scramblers in the state. I forget the modifications that were required, but PKI refurbished their scrambler after last season. It isn't going any where. It usually has a pretty decent line and compared to rides like the Eagles and Drop Zone, it is somewhat of a high capacity ride.
  4. PKI will catch Cedar Point in the coaster count eventually. I think that IJ:ST will be successful and will be followed by another coaster within a year or two.
  5. I tried posting this earlier and messed it up. This isn't meant to be a prediction of any ride removals at the park.
  6. Vortex Scrambler Monster Congo Falls Top Gun Adventure Express Scooby's Ghoster Coaster Wave Swinger Fight of Fear White Water Canyon
  7. I do not see Vortex, Top Gun or Adventure Express leaving the park. The only coaster they might remove would be Scooby's Ghoster Coaster, which will not be taken out because they hold the record for the most kiddie/family coasters. The only thing I see them removing would be Congo Falls(Kings Dominion took out a similar ride).
  8. Wow! This poll turned out exactly like I thought it would-a tie between Beast and Racer(so far). The Beast will always be the greatest ride in the history of PKI, but my own opinion is that without the success of The Racer, the focus on new rides at the park would have turned away from coasters and the skyline at PKI today would be very different. The park could have turned out to be an attraction park like the Orlando theme parks if The Racer hadn't caught attention.
  9. What do you think is the most important coaster in PKI's long history? I am not asking what your favorite is. I am asking you which ride is the one that means the most. I know many people will say The Beast, but my choice is The Racer. The building of The Racer renewed America's interest in coasters and was the first large theme park woodie. Most of the major coasters at PKI either held records or broke new ground in the amusement park industry when they opened.
  10. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of Phantom Theater's soundtrack?
  11. I was very happy to see the Usher and Maestro from Phantom Theater when I went to the park yesterday. The Dracula film is an embarassment-even worse than Days of Thunder. Maybe PKI can bring back the old PT characters on a permanent basis since they still have them. I also love hearing PT's soundtrack. Have the usher to direct guests into the Paramount FX Theater was a nice touch.
  12. I keep the launch and the inversions on Flight of Fear a secret from first time riders that I bring to the park. I tell everyone that it is a family dark ride and I am always believed. Even after they see the launch while waiting in line, they always believe that there are no loops.
  13. One more thing about camera rules in Asia. I have been to Japan and Korea(I love Lotte World) and I can vouch that parks do allow cameras on the rides in these countries. In fact, I know of a few parks that actually encourage it.
  14. Of course, there is nothing wrong with on ride photography as long as it isn't against park policy. Thanks for sharing the photos!
  15. I am posting this for fun-not to cause a debate. Ohio is lucky to have so many wonderful parks to choose from. I know everyone here is a PKI fan, but what is your favorite park in Ohio? Once again, this is meant for fun, so do not take this the wrong way.
