  1. I would agree with the above, however, I would swap out Orion for Millennium Force and possibly Dragster for something representative of the old Geagua Lake (Six Flags Worlds of Adventure) - Big Dipper, perhaps? I never went when it was open, so I don't know that their most memorable coaster would be. So, again, here are my picks: Steel Vengeance Millennium Force The Beast Big Dipper [or insert something memorable from Geagua Lake here]/Top Thrill Dragster
  2. Yeah, the few times I have been in Planet Snoopy, I have not been a fan of this. In 2019 and years before, I recall them playing Disney-eque hits with other classic kids songs (like 2 Veggietales songs, "The Ants Go Marching", "Polly wally doodle", etc. They also had this Pokemon song with an epic guitar solo on the rotation for a few years, but IIRC, that was before I got back into it again) with a few Kidz Bop covers*, but now it's all I've heard this year. I have such a problem with it as I feel some of those songs are not appropriate for children (Senorita (Shawn Mendes/Camilla Cabello comes to mind; I don't remember the other one(s), but I know I felt that way about a few).
  3. Yes, they do! I remember walking through Backwoods Bayou prior to Winterfest one year and yelling "Merry Christmas" to everyone who tried to scare me lol
  4. Yeah, I was confused about that too... during the POV, I was checking to see if it "dived" off of the quarry wall, but nope... In any case, it looks like a cool addition; I would love to get to Fiesta Texas someday and this is one more (small) reason to do so (besides Superman, Iron Rattler, Wonder Woman and Batman)
  5. Attended the dance party again tonight, and while I had a great time (I breakdanced to "Hit me baby one more time" once the bass dropped), I was wondering if/why the same music is played every time. Yes, the songs played are so hype and (hopefully) get people dancing, but I guess I expected the DJ to switch it up every time. Also, although I loved "Bye, Bye, Bye" (by *Nsync), I really think "The Game is Over" would be a better choice thematically as it references video games and seems to fit Area 72 more as it sounds more "electronic" than "Bye, Bye, Bye". Here is "The Game is Over" for your listening pleasure:
  6. Watched (and participated in) the parade tonight and it was awesome. From where I stood (on the corner of Coney Mall in front of those games at the intersection of Coney and Area 72), the audio seemed a little softer, but I had a great time. After it passed by, the guy at the end appreciated my enthusiasm so much, he let me join in and follow them 'till the end. During the parade run, I saw a ton of people I knew and that was so much fun. On an unrelated note, tonight was more of a "party" night than a ride night, so instead of riding rides, I saw Busker Jam before the parade and participated in the Area 72 dance party afterwards. It was a fun night!!!
  7. I like it; it’s like an achievement system in a video game. I am curious as to what all the rank icons are (since some won’t show up).
  8. Slight change of topic, but still related to Haunt... I recently found this older Haunt shirt, but I can't remember what year it is from. I know it is at least from 2014 as Banshee is in the background. Does anyone (on here ) know what year this shirt is from? I've previously searched on KIC for info (as I know I found out about it on here many moons ago), but no avail. Thanks in advance for letting me know.
  9. Where is this flat bread you speak of? And do they have flat bread pizzas? If so, I might have to try it... -MDMC, one of those "more finicky guests" (I'm a picky eater) mentioned earlier in the thread (re: unique dining offerings) EDIT: Ok, so I just realized from the picture if these are available at Brewhouse. Wonder if they have fflatbread cheese pizzas...
  10. That's a really cool picture, not just because it is showcasing an unpainted King Cobra, but because the Ferris Wheel is there. Other pictures I've seen don't give a good indication of where exactly it was in the park; now we know*! *I think its location now contains one of the caricature booths (also, where you could win an ATV at some point). And as for whether coasters were painted on site back in the day, I think @Shaggy might be a good person to ask about that!
  11. I have not seen the parade yet, (I will do so next Saturday ), but as for the Opening Ceremonies, I really liked that they brought Cirque-style acts back to KI. Also, I was confused as to why the drumming went on for so long as I was under the impression there would be multiple acts (besides the drums and the acrobats). However, I did enjoy both acts. Also, why are there two Opening Ceremony shows (or there seems to be - one at 5:00 and one around 6:15)? On another note, I get why they centralized everything, but I miss having to "discover" new things once you get to each pavilion, like the drummers/dancers of India or the Cyr Ring for Germany. So far, though, I have enjoyed Carnivale. I think the parade will be really cool!
  12. I got a chance to walk through this today and it was actually really cool and unique. I got my picture with the surfboard set.
  13. 'Twas a good day in the park today. It was somewhat crowded, but still managed to ride Adventure Express, Orion (twice, once in the front- I love the front, even though the speed pretty much forces me to close my eyes), Xtreme Skyflier (hadn't done that since 2019), The Bat (had a bumpy ride in 3-1), Delirium (pretty relaxing; all I need is a small pillow lol), Beast (stapled myself and it felt like an earthquake lol), and Mystic Timbers. Also saw Busker Jam and saw some Carnivale stuff. I also messed up the scavenger hunt (I did it in the wrong order lol), but still had a ton of fun (I plan on seeing the parade next Saturday). On a final note, I ran into so many people today (mostly during Carnivale) and it was great catching up with old friends. -MDMC, who heard the fireworks from his bedroom as he typed this
  14. Here is a line update: Delirium is 2 switchbacks short of having a full queue open. Bat line was to the top of the stairs (the set of downward stairs closest to the exit) Earlier today, Orion’s line had no switchbacks open, but some were open during my second ride. Adventure Express was only a station wait, but only because I did it first thing (I was one of three people on the train lol) Drop Zone is closed. Xtreme Skyflyer was at $10 earlier.
  15. Speaking of contactless payments, I've really enjoyed using the Wendy's app on my phone as I can conveniently order on-the-go. I think another plus to this (for companies, at least) is that I feel like people tend to spend more money (impulse buy) when paying thru apps as they don't "see" the money - they just know they want the thing now.
  16. Funny you should mention Orion's music... I was wondering where the station music was (as I heard Orion would have a specific soundtrack)! I don't know that I've ever heard it (and if I did, I don't remember).
  17. Certainly! It's the wooded area in the second video around 3:47 (after showing Tim Horton's). And yes, I am referring to the path beyond the right side; the first time I saw the video, I thought that was a dead end near the seating area. I now see that that path leads to another area, as you had mentioned.
  18. Good stuff; really enjoyed the videos! I'd like to get up there someday, mostly for the cool flat rides and the coasters. It's interesting to see how three International Streets differ between KI, KD and CW, what with all the different shops and even different pathways (like how the pathway that would lead to KI's Action Zone is a dead end at CW - also, your Xtreme Skyflier is really close to the midway!). I also noticed that CW's International Street is more green and shaded than KI's (and on that subject, does that shaded area on the right side of Wonder Mountain lead anywhere?). Also, I would love to see more of the park (the castle entrance to Medieval Faire looks cool and Expo... er, Action Zone intrigues me (even though I've heard Flight Deck is uncomfortable).
  19. That would be a shame if it was a copyright issue with the shed's specific playlist.... When I rode Friday, I didn't hear the radio either, which I thought was odd... ...so I started singing parts of the songs myself!
  20. The last time I was at the park, I attended the Launch Party twice and loved it. I talked about it a bit in the KI 2021 thread but long story short, there was great music, I breakdanced and really enjoyed the dance party. Having a juggler (along with the MC, DJ and dancers) was cool as well
  21. I'd like to see a Beast Tour; that's one "behind-the-scenes" thing I have never done. Also, a walking tour under The Bat would be super cool.
  22. Sorry, it wasn't me (my Blastoise doesn't know it and my Kingdra is in a PC Box). Must be the local Ludicolo causing that rainstorm!
  23. And if ya'll want to learn more about Squishmellows, here's the official site: https://squishmallows.com/ From what I've read, they've been increasing in popularity over the past year and seem to appeal to both collectors (there are specific ones that people try to obtain) and those who just love stuffed animals. I didn't realize there were so many designs!
