  1. Rides were indeed open at 4 this past Saturday. Mystic opened a bit late but they were doing test runs at 4. I rode Boo Blasters, Shake Rattle and Roll, and Dodgems and the Carousel first thing before 5pm. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. The buffet at Reds is a $5 upcharge if you have a 2018 dining plan. Yes it is all you can eat. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. We also got tickets for the 9:30 tour. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. Lol now you know. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. That was actually me who reminded you that it didn't have a MCBR. Lol Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. They were actually closed cause of the windy conditions. Diamondback did reopen but went down again for a maintenance reason and never came back up. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. Yes, wind did quite a bit of things to Coney Mall. Over of the tent things they had set up feel, and the circus tarps on the fence for the antiques blew down. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. Vortex and other coasters can continue to run if it drops below the minimum temp, the problem was yesterday after Vortex shut down for wind it simply got to cold to resume operation. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. Food Service was way off today, and the park wasn't even busy. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. I hardly ride Firehawk, Vortex on the other hand is still one of my all time favorite rides period. I wouldn't miss Firehawk much but I'd be devastated if Vortex is leaving. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. I have a feeling 2019 will be the last year of Diamondback being the Tallest, Fastest, Coaster to ever strike Kings Island. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. I beg to differ, y'all just don't appreciate Vortex. Vortex was never B&M smooth, it was a different time back in 1987. It's funny the complaints didn't seem too happen with Vortex until the park got B&Ms. I love Arrow Coasters. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. The National Rollercoaster Weekend special for new pass was the free Fast Lane and Free Bring a Friend ticket. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. This weekend is also Teacher Appreciation which gives teachers free admission, and the option of buying up to 6 addition tickets at $29.99 each. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. Even people with a 2018 have to pay for Haunt. Haunt at Wonderland is a separate event. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  16. Vortex had it's last complete paint job back in 2001 the year I was a ride op on Vortex. It did get the rails repainted in 2009. And yes 2000 was the last year for Bond at KI, 7th Portal and Smash Factory showed in 2001. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  17. I hardly ever see Vortex down, I'm sure it does from time to time, it did when I worked on it back in 2001. The thing that worries me about Vortex is it's ridership, it continues to drop each year. Granted we have received 3 major coasters since 2009 with two being B&M. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  18. Considering they did put work into the ride during the 2017 Off season, they replaced quite a few of the footings and also got a brand new air compressor for it, it's not going anywhere anytime soon. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  19. Beast Canyon Cold Drinks, I believe that sign still remains. You could buy drinks or snacks while waiting in line. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  20. I had an issue yesterday at Mystic, instead of the operator pulling up to make sure the lap bar was locked, the operator pushed down with all of his weight and knocked the wind out of me. Then I brought it to another ops attention and they were making excuses for the behavior. I did indeed go to GS in all of the rides I've taken on Mystic that has never happened and it shouldn't have happened. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  21. Yet Cedar Point can stop lifts and take people's phones. Sometimes I get the Impression some of the ops don't care. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  22. Carowinds is also open November 3,4,10,11 from 10am till 6pm, very interesting. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  23. Is Jukebox back to having KI employees running? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  24. How many trains? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
