    Rows chained off on Mystic

    I see this a lot on Corkscrew and Iron Dragon at Cedar Point but those both are low attendance rides. Mystic Timbers is only one year old so I don't think it's ridership has lowered to that of Corkscrew or Iron Dragon. Meditate on this I will.

    I end up using the highlight tool on PowerPoint, like what I did for Firehawk

    @Hawaiian Coasters 325 I do not mean to ridicule your concepts but you should take a page out of @Thrill_Biscuit 's book instead of just using windows paint
  4. Oh no, I'm not trying to say its the fault of the operators at all, the fault is 100% on the individual with the phone. I'm just saying that if the operators were joking around on the PA instead of giving instructions on loose articles, the fault could be on them. There have been a few times when I've gone to parks where the associates don't even ask riders to secure loose articles and instead joke around on the mic. After an op/associate says to secure loose articles, the riders should be responsible if their items fall out of their pockets.
  5. I think ride ops need to do a better job of reminding guests about loose articles instead of joking around over the PA system like what @BoddaH1994 says. The guest with the phone is the one at fault but if the ride associates were joking and messing around, the blame could be shifted to the park.

    X-Base: The Ideal Build Out

    X-Base Expansion Plan This is my rendition for the most realistic change that can be made to X-Base should the park ever chose to expand it in the future. The current buildings and rides will stay, however there will be a significant amount of land added to the section to the left of Flight of Fear. This expansion would not only add more land to the section but it would also not make the area a dead end anymore. The new expansion would feature a permanent food vendor, extra rides, and yes, restrooms. There will be extra room for a coaster in the old Dinosaur's Alive area as well. The two pay to ride attractions, Slingshot and Xtreme Skyflyer would move to the new and improved X-Base as well as a witches' wheel to give it a more extraterrestrial feel. The que of Firehawk is enclosed now so guests can feel as if they're walking through an aviation training facility with tvs similar to Flight of Fear and air conditioning. The whole area will receive a cosmetic overhaul to where even the maintenance buildings will be disguised to look like military buildings. The park can use old props from the Top Gun ride as well as any other props from the Paramount days. The area will have a story focusing around Flight of Fear which will go something like this- "In 1996 an unidentified flying object entered Earth's atmosphere and landed within the ground of Kings Island. Department 47 was dispatched and soon encased the UFO in a building away from the public's eye. With the fear of another extraterrestrial encounter, the government turned the crash site into a secret, off the books military facility- X-Base. At X-Base new recruits will tour the facilities and ride multiple rides that would give one the sensations of a 0-100 mph launch, suspended flight, and many other unworldly sensations." I would go further and say that Firehawk is a prototype human propulsion system designed to mimic human flight.

    This is probably my favorite concept
  10. I've been going to this zoo for 20 years and this investment is heavily needed. The elephant reserve always felt so tiny to house 4 full grown elephants. Only time will tell what the Elephant building will house next. The rhino reserve also needed some attention. The White Lions exhibit was really old and needed to be replaced as did wildlife canyon, especially since the Sumatran rhinos are gone. I really like the initiative that the zoo is taking where people will get to interact with animals more and see them be animals. Despite their good intentions, Zoos have always gotten a bad rap for keeping wild animals captive in small enclosures so giving the larger animals more room to roam is certainly a huge step towards better conservation efforts.

    Official looking men between The Racers

    As far as I know, the only CF coaster they've touched is the late Rebel Yell. I'd say Cedar Fair has a stronger relationship with GCI at the moment as they've been the go-to for wooden coasters for over a decade now

    Rmc can add topper track and I wouldn't care since it would still be considered wooden. What Racer really needs is a gci or a gravity group retrack which wouldn't be an issue considering how iconic the ride is to the industry.

    RMC Giga? Its far fetched but I honestly like listening to this guy. Subscribe to his channel as he always has something good. https://youtu.be/C0_3m2Rhk5I
  15. There's been rumors circulating of a possible Giga Dive coaster. I don't know that this is the case but can you imagine a 300ft dive coaster?
