  1. I'm thinking they need to change the light bulb for the lava in Adventure Express....all winter and no one could change a bulb?
  2. Yep, my shift would start about 10 pm. In the winter it was pretty dead, no one in the parks at night. That was back in the days when they still had the fiberglass indians, they would store them in the fiberglass shop which was the building on the top of the hill on the other side of the fence from HB land. You'd be going thru the fiberglass shop at night with your flashlight walking thru all the indians with their hatchets and arrows and wondering which one was going to get ya! In the summer the park was busy all night, maintenance, people hosing down the walkways and cleaning the shops etc...always found people doing some interesting things on third shift...the motor house on the Flying Eagles ride comes to mind. Going thru the Enchanted Voyage you'd walk along the "canal" thru the building and check the doors and other areas. The perimeter check was interesting too, that was during the Lion Country Safari days and you'd have to go around the perimeter and check all the gates for the safari. You could shine your light into the lion pen and see all the eyeballs glowing at you.
  3. I was working third shift security in the park back then. Best memory I have is walking through the Enchanted Voyage doing the checks....I just knew one of them characters were going to come to life in the glow of my flashlight.
  4. They've added a live stream camera. Only thing I don't like is seeing that big Pink's hotdog spinning around....makes me want to drive up and get one!

  6. Sounds like a challenge...time to break out the Excel spreadsheet compiling into an Access database to see if a trend can be established!
  7. Where'd you fly out of Ty. I'm a pilot and fly out of Harrison, see that view a lot with people wanting to fly over KI. Is one of your friends a pilot?
  8. There are some trams on a few farms out in Shandon where I live, if KI wants to use them again I'll pull them up there with my truck
  9. I think i would have waited till at least 2nd or 3rd public cycle
  10. Haven't been back since opening day. Haven't seen WindSeeker running on the camera and was wondering if it's opened this year yet?
  11. I got in a few coaster rides which was my goal. Going in for eye surgeries over the next two weeks and won't be able to ride anything coasterwise till about mid June. That will put it just in time for the trip to CP tho, so figure first ride after the healing will be Millie and Top Thrill.
  12. I wish they'd test returning the trams to the parking lot
  13. Went up to get my pass Sunday and all the metal detectors are gone....hope it's permanent.
  14. Looking at the new wave pool compared to the construction equipment around it looks like it's going to be a good sized pool. Now if they would just have added some Typhooon Lagoon waves!
  15. It's up on the site...can't figure where it is pointing to tho.
  16. jlpoez, search around for one of these, you can probably beat the microcenter price on-line somewhere http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0379084 you plug it into your vcr with rca cord and pull the video to your puter
  17. Only thing we got from Half Pint Brawlers was it was a half hour of our life we'll never get back.
  18. http://s1199.photobucket.com/albums/aa479/psimpson44/?action=view&current=2011-10-12_12-12-43_880.jpg They are on a farm in Shandon. Be nice if KI would buy them back and start using them again.
  19. Wife and I were talking they could really get some good scares if they stood on the blind side of when the cars are turning and pop around and go BOO!
  20. Back in another life I use to run the rides at the Zoo. The Octo we had there had the seperate controls, one to get it spinning and the other to send the cars in the up and down. We would once in a while (meaning when Harley the maintenance guy wasn't around) give people an extra special ride by manipulating the up down control. Drop the car when the people were at the right spot to give them some air time, restart it at the right time on the up swing to push them into their seats. We would just have the hose ready to spray away the protein spills when we got done.
  21. We went to Disney in '08 and I did a bit of planning ahead of time. I signed up on touring plans, they have a crowd calendar that was a big help. We didn't plan down to what ride at what time but using the calendar we were able to hit the parks on their least busy days which helped out a lot. We stuck to the plan of going to the least busiest park and not waiting for more then 20 minutes to ride anything. Over the spa of the week we were there we rode everything we wanted to and still had time to enjoy the atmosphere in the parks. We decided to stray from the plan for one day and visit a different park and boy was that a mistake. If going to Disney I would sugest the touring plans calendar to at least plan on going to the parks listed as least busy for a certain day, not sure if I'd want to actually have a specific time to be at a ride. The thing that gets me is the dining reservtions. I've been trying to get a reservation at T-Rex in January, right now there is nothing available because they are booked solid. We're heading to Universal in January for a few days. Staying on site so the front of the line access is included, haven't decided on the all you can eat plan yet. Yellowkorn I'm sure there are people that will use it. If you read on the Disney forums there are people that seemed obsessed with planning their trip to Disney, to me just doesn't seem like a vacation if your still on a time schedule.
  22. I think they have the area to open, they need to add more stalks and make the path narrower with them. There is a lot of light coming from the tower and international street and with the openess of the maze I think it is hard for the scarers to be effective. If they could do it more along the line of the one at CP with the closeness of the maze, finding someway to darken it or position lights like they have at CP that the scarers can hide behind I think it would improve it a lot.
  23. We were there opening night and had a blast in Wolf Pack. Maze layout is great, lots of hiding spaces. The props were well done and the wolves were spot on for scaring my wife and daughter, cannon fodder at the front of the line. Best part of the maze was coming out tho. The last wolf by the exit jumped between my son and daughter and followed her down the exit ramp. She wasn't paying attention or turning around so I called her name to get her to turn around and the wolf was right in her face. High 5's all around and he commented it was the his best scare o the evening so far. You all are doing great...keep it up!
  24. Personally I would have told them that S.O.B. is sinking faster than Vortex and since they figure they can save Vortex they are just letting S.O.B. slip away until it's gone.
  25. Paint it white with big colorful pokeeee dots all over
