  1. For myself, I renew around or the day of sale. It typically gives you back value with a Fast Lane or some other offering which you could price out at $30-50 depending on the day so when you're spending out all of that cash, you're actually saving a lot of it too. For other parks and attractions I wait for Black Friday/Cyber Monday if it's something like Six Flags or etc. Those savings can give you a lot of cash back in the long run and can help buy some more merch at the parks.
  2. The actual legal document states a "wooden coaster" when referencing Adventure Express, FOX19 is simply reporting what's stated in the document . https://rcdb.com/70.htm
  3. Annnnnnnnnd this is why I always say I have trust issues in the theme park industry. I always tell people don't go off what some self proclaimed big shot says, go off of what you like/experience. There's no way that Haunt is the best halloween event after my last visit, but the food is seriously giving CP (Miss Keats) , Knotts (Knott's Chicken Dinner) , Dollywood (Aunt Granny's) heck even EPCOT (Everything besides the Mexican pavilion, I'd choose Chipotle over it tbh) some competition I never expected from the park. Heck, the Game day plate is the only reason why I'm going to the park today which says a lot about how I feel about their food game this year.
  4. Okay can we take a second and talk about the brisket they have in the Coney BBQ now? It is honestly the best thing I have ever had there and I am REALLY impressed (coming from a grill master that's pretty good). I am really excited to see what offerings they have at Winterfest this year because if this summer has been a testament to their dedication to food quality, I can't wait for this winter!
  5. The main and brief: Those who vote, are always biased in my opinion. I know most (if not 50%) of people here are newer to the whole coaster enthusiast gig; Golden Tickets are ways for parks to get publicity, but the people who vote aren't always the most reliable. Ever since the Flying Turns fiasco taking out what was honestly the best coaster of the year which actually opened (Banshee), and putting in a coaster which had so many issues, so many set backs, that didn't even open but for a brief time if memory serves me right. For people to give the award to something which mind you makes Woodstock Express look like a behemoth, instead of Goliath, instead of Banshee made me turn off the awards and just let it go. If you want to ride around with the following, by all means go for it, I just can't be behind it for a myriad of reasons. As for these rankings, it just serves that mentality more. Texas Stingray doesn't even have a lot of following, let alone hype. Even for myself, being someone who ranks Orion behind Diamondback to this day, will call that bull any day. Could it have been better? Yeah, in various ways. Has it been overhyped? Yep, and people probably ranked it in contrast to Fury which in my opinion is a really bad observation. The coaster itself does what it needed to do for the fans, but I think many saw the lack of elements on Fury and Leviathan as a waste of time.
  6. Honestly, I'm kind of upset that the park is this far behind the rest of the chain. I don't mean to be a debby downer all the time, honestly; but the fact that Dorney Park even has their Haunt lineup out before the park does. I understand that we live in a very different time, but to be this late and to be behind less invested parks kind of tilts me. I get that the park operates and moves in the direction it dictates, and honestly they don't have to announce what they're getting. It is just worrisome for someone, like myself, who actually cares about the event as frankly it has been going down hill for a few years.
  7. I wouldn't get my hopes up on that coaster replacement concept. What is rumored by my dippin' dots guy is something that will be tasty to say the least.
  8. Honestly I like it, it kind of took me back as a server glitch as it appears in a funky spot. (imo I think if it were to be center aligned below members it would look better)
  9. Please tell me I'm not the only person who actually lol'd at that. I'm happy to see the events are still happening, I'm also pretty interested to see if they will nix any haunts and add new ones if they were already planned.
  10. I'm going to be frank, the event is geared towards an adult audience, but that doesn't mean kids don't go. I believe the balance Kings Island has is honestly some of the best in the industry, happy haunts during the day, with scary haunts at night. Now with that being said, I have seen a ton of kids go into the houses in years past. Do I personally agree? Not really, but kids do go through the haunts more often than you think. I think, frankly, the park needs to ramp up the horror and seriously step up their quality. It has the capacity to be great, but as of late it feels like a blend of cheaper Spirit Halloween props with Hobby Lobby decorations. (IIRC there was a massive change in leadership a few years past, and ever since it has been going downhill). Oh, and please get rid of the day of the dead props for all of I-Street, just make it halloween based off each area. (i e werewolf in the french area, etc.
  11. Honestly, something like Hangtime would be perfect for the park. I think people get caught up with the biggest, baddest coasters and forget that there are some really great supporting class designs out there. I would even be happy with just a simple clone of Hangtime, different theme of course, plopped down virtually anywhere. It fills a serious void that the park has: a modern quality steel support coaster. People get too caught up with Mystery Mine and other earlier models while forgetting about the really good work they've done over the past couple of years. As for the above marker conversation, that whole situation add some other bits have a lesson for newer enthusiasts out there: never trust anything on the internet till the park makes an announcement. The Dippin' Dots guy would be proud <3

    KI survey: Part 1

    I'll be real for a minute, this is actually a pretty good poll. I personally believe Oktoberfest just needs a true revival with food and attractions, more than what Action Zone needs. However, I will say Planet Snoopy needs some TLC. The signs are showing some wear, the same with the Snoopy statues which need some serious recoats.
  13. I honestly wonder if everyone thinks it's the thunder dome whenever they have a minor argument. This is just getting out of hand, have you seriously forgotten how to act in public? What would your mother do if she knew what you were doing?
  14. I'm extremely hopeful they can keep the bowling aspect at the forefront. I used to go more often, but with their league policies and the prices I just couldn't justify going often even though it's a short jaunt. I didn't think the alley was doing too bad, just three weeks ago it was packed with customers wanting to bowl.
  15. The highlighted part is exactly what I'm talking about. Revoke pass privileges, ban for x amount of time, formal notice, trespass, etc. I understand the rehabilitation of minors, which should be supported, however in my opinion when you act in a more mature adult manor I E gang on gang violence, that's when I start to draw the line. I'm honestly not trying to call for a police state at the park, what I am calling for is more accountability on those who infringe on the rules. Because at the end of the day, if the park keeps getting these fights, then we're going to get a brand of being the fight club like some other parks do already. Of which is the last thing I want to see said about the park because it is simply not true. Also, to the above meme, you don't know the half of it .
