  1. Yep. When I worked at Beast ten years ago, the first queue house was still referred to as 'middle queue'. Holdover from when the removed queue house was present.
  2. There is dark red steel coaster track in the swan lake construction area that arrived today.
  3. The ajc.com article said no one on the ride was injured.

    It'll go to the ride ops and maintenance lunch/vending machine fund....

    LOL. Like Disaster Transport?
  6. Whatever, Tom. You know the sups on TR in '03 were complete tyrants.
  7. The Paramount Theater will be the Kings Island Theater. And the movie-named rides will be changing too.
  8. So they brought in a crane for a motherboard? Interesting. With all due respect to KI Man, chalk up the broken motherboard theory to a dippin dots guy's opinion, its just a rumor hes heard circulating around through the employees, he works in games. Tomb Raider had a bad board in the audio/show system earlier this summer which was why the show was not running for a while. The issue now is mechanical.
  9. He's not talking about the noise from the resistor banks. He means the noises from the ride unit itself. I agree the noises would seem odd to a random guest, however I think the fact that it's in a metal building makes it worse than it would be outside with ambient noise.
  10. I have no way of taking pictures on me right now, but I'm sure someone here will sometime today.
  11. Son of Beast has reopened today, July 4.
  12. There have always been orange-ish lights shining on the track at various spots. Right after the brake shed and at the turn to lift 2 for instance.
  13. They actually removed ten seats from the far end of the gondola. So yes, they use all seats, but there are fewer than there used to be.
  14. Ice show is coming back. There are audition flyers in the HR office. It will be in the Paramount Theater.
  15. See Im not a TROLL! We know what we are talking about.... Glad to see the resident TROLL is back... Firehawk is a horrible name, unless they change FoF to ThunderHawk, then I think the aviary section of the park would be set. ^Unfortunate you don't like that name....
  16. Doubtful. The "Kings Island" in Cedar Fair script with the corporate logo now appears on the park's paperwork as well as the sign on Western Row Rd. going into the employee entrance.
  17. You have to apply online, and then it's up to the department you apply for to hire/rehire you. Pretty much the same it's always been, with the exception of sending out masses of rehire packets (which acttually weren't sent out last year either).
  18. ^ With a screen name like King James, probably. Kinda fitting he's talking about interpreting things incorrectly then says he's going to read his bible...
  19. I won't delve into how employment has been structured in the past, but suffice it to say, from what I've seen, CF doesn't give a rat's ass about it's employees (seasonal or full-time) compared to the old PPI.
