  1. I'm a veteran in more ways than one, I know when parks open,etc.!!! Even when we dont know!!! Those that know dont talk, right now nobody knows!!! I'm not hopping a flight yet!!! I got my eyes open, and my money if so I choose to spend, I'm not going to waste it without a delay,refund, whatever. Grown man talk!
  2. So... I sent my kids mom the song Helena from my chemical romance(awesome band), she text me back last night," OMG, whats your plans"!!!! She's smart, I said taking kids to "Disney Tokyo Japan", get passports ready as soon as they open I'm booking flight!!!! She knows I dont joke, so its On!!!! My son is only 6 and he still shy about planes and coasters so he stay back( I'm not the jerk dad about forcing kids) my daughters are 100% about flying and coasters, I can tell you they only cried when they wasn't tall enough!!!! Get this Covid19 out, we got to bang this out... Honestly, I have more coaster credits than you, so.... Im slap happy!!!! Forgive me!!!
  3. So... my kids mom is a doctor( lucky her,or me her loans belong to her now!)but she works from home right now half the time thank God, so she's putting an underground pool in for the kids this year(I'm sure my child support is helping)! They live 5 minutes from my house so I'm sure I'll be taking care of it! Anyways, I told the kids, lets skip this summer and focus on all the rides next summer! I did some math(shocker) and if we wait and I set aside all the money I'd spent this summer, next summer we can roll out fastlane season passes and trips!!! They love that idea, and I'm with them, I'll put money aside all summer we'd be driving and spending and have it all by 2021!!!! What you guys and gals think? Talk is cheap, cause for some reason it opens up I'm sure to be there!!! (Keep it hush).
  4. Lucky you, I'm not making reservations, I'll put a slip in slide in my backyard! Just being honest,if we need reservation, count me out, hope for 2021.
  5. Cheers to 2021, cause we ain't riding this year without a miracle. I'm invested and I pray I'm wrong but doesn't look good at all. I haven't yet read any back post cause I just got on but no way they can afford to open without very highly odds they'll have to close up from a large Covid outbreak. Suks, but I'm giving you the truth. Love Kings Island but if we have to wait an extra summer, stay safe.
  6. I would like to thank IndyGuy for starting this thread, first time I've signed into KICentral in a long time(this topic I needed and reason why I did)! I had some rough years and good,and miss reading Terp,Goble,others,but nice to read and see pics from those who've stuck around or could be around(job admitted) and new members. I plan to meet many of you this season, I know my kids are very excited for Orion, and many of you know who the biggest kid in the family is!!!! Everyone stay safe,I have a cousin stuck in Italy right now, trust me she wants home! So, be greatful to your family,friends and neighbors,and keep posting more positive videos and pics, I know I love to see them! Meet up soon!!!!
  7. I don't see why people are making a big deal about it, if I brought a friend and the attendant so go ahead and bring him in with you it's fine I would be thankful as I'm sure even those complaining would be as well, just don't ruin your day by trying to sneak someone in.
  8. They'd lose money, I highly doubt that's a high priority for them to focus on stopping a few random folks from getting into ert when their making money with the shops open. My X wife would head straight to Star Bucks and then shop around while I went straight to DB,Banshee,etc. That's a great way to make money for those who are there early but can't or don't care to get to ert.
  9. No probably about it, and if those dozen or so people bring their wallet or purse into the park when they used those passes they'd actually make money. I want dipping dots now after watching that video and of course to get the latest top secret info! Haha
  10. I'm learning a lot reading this thread! I plan on doing this reversed. I retire in 15 years and plan to work at GABP and possibly Kings Island. Jr for Birdy...who has a hard time sitting still, I imagine even after retirement!
  11. That's crazy, I'd thought coaster or Kings Island enthusiasts would treat the employees with much respect considering most of us understand what's going on there for the most part. I know I treat them all very well, even when a young employee is rude, I kill everyone with kindness. It feels better than getting upset and it throws them off!
  12. A face shield!!! Haha, the rain can be brutal at times on a coaster. Sunglasses or goggles?! remember one time on Vortex my friend and I felt like we were getting shot with bbs it was so bad.
  13. I've premium parked before on very hot days when general parking was packed only because I was pushing a stroller and had my three young kids with me. Sit in the air conditioning with a cooler of food and ice waters to relax and cool off the family for lunch, usually would sit in the Reds restaurant for dinner. Its worth the extra money at times.
  14. As long as the air conditioning works in Boo Blasters this summer I'll be happy! My kids still love it but I've been over it for several years no matter what they fix. I'm ready for a new attraction to take its place, I'd hope in the next couple years?
  15. I'll be there if it's going to be cold and rainy. Sunny and warm and I'm not going anywhere near the park unless I break down and get a Fast Lane Plus, but I usually only get one for the 4th of July.
  16. You read it correctly, I'm not sure if the answer was correct or not, call guest services and fill us in!
  17. That's really disgusting! I usually eat in the car an crank the air condition but when I eat in the park I always ask for fresh food if I have doubts.
  18. Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't only be odd if it was playing a song after 1987? I still listen to music from the 1960s,70s,80's on the radio. I prefer the 80s!
  19. I wonder if the shed has AC or a fan for the summer? I enjoy a relaxing break on top a lift hill or a mcbr if I'm outside with sunscreen on, that's of course there isn't a kid screaming or even worse an adult the entire time. These rides are covered with sensors, just someone losing a flip flop can stop the ride, people don't freak out!
  20. You'll be good if your patiently waiting in line. It's not Easter weekend anymore and many gold and platinum members will flood the park next Saturday, I'd say a lot more than yesterday. I'm just giving the heads up, members don't typically leave the park, they wait for everyone else, that works at times during the summer and fall, I wouldn't get my hopes up for this Saturday. It's hard to get lucky on a Saturday especially this early in the season from my years of experience. Most every gold pass in a 2 hour radius will plan to be there knowing a new coaster awaits.
  21. How long were the Fast Lane plus lines for MT this weekend? I'm curious how they mixed them into the line?
  22. My neighbor has the same fence, constantly telling neighbor kids not to climb it. It's not the same lumber used for MT I can assure you that! I could make a SOB joke but I'd rather not, that wasn't Cedar Fairs doing, but I am surprised they built the queue with that fence.
  23. I was thinking when I seen the queue fence the first tume they better have plenty of replacements, I'm sure the park knew what they were getting into with it. Those will break constantly all season.
  24. I'm excited to ride MT as soon as I can get to the park in a week or two after all the positive enjoyment I've read and heard from those who have ridden. One of my favorite parts about The Beast is the second lift hill. I enjoy the calm before the storm. Anytime I've taken a new guest to Kings Island I always keep them away from The Beast until after dark, it is pure laughing pleasure for me(eating bugs included) in that front seat with a newbie at night in pitch black darkness. Doesn't get much better, several great memories!
  25. I'm trying to catch up with a lot I missed the past year. Terp had me rolling with this one! Not the same without him.
