  1. ^this is an enthusiast site not officially affiliated with the park. Others would have simply said that and would say call the park for more information. My post was simply pointing out it wasn't for individual purposes to save that person from bothering the park. If that person was with a group they should have been more clear.... This site is full of assumptions...
  2. They had these types working at WF - people working in street clothes with handwritten name tags. Easy to spot... This program isn't something you sign up for as an individual. As others have pointed out, it is for groups/organizations and not some individual random enthusiast wanting to volunteer for a day...
  3. And when the Jam comes to KI we can read FB posts about how people cannot believe they tore down Vortex for Monster Trucks
  4. They better change the artwork as Vortex is operational in it
  5. It's all good - I wasn't picking on you - just trying to make a point on if we are in the season where the TOS is being enforced or not. I suspect the pictures above will be disappearing soon so snag a copy before they are gone lol... I knew the moment several months back when it was posted that it was wrong and tried to diplomatically point it out by bringing up the confirm the source clause in the TOS and some other publicly available information but was shot down as how dare we question someone with such insider knowledge...
  6. Modified original post to add clarity - by second poster I didn't specifically mean you - just that the same another person questioned the source too and that same another person then questioned how is a member supposed to know the difference between a well-respected with insider information or not...
  7. Question here - are we back to not confirming sources again. You may recall several months ago, someone (we will call original poster) said that Sky High had the contract to build Orion and take down Vortex. Another poster asks for a source. Original poster basically said it is well known he has connections in the industry and doesn't need to post his source. Moderator posts that members are not to question information shared by the Mod team or by well respected members of this forum. The same Another poster from above questioned how is a member supposed to know who the well respected members are - is it based on "reputation score" the site assigns or is there a list somewhere? Discussion died at that point. So the question is are you one of the well respected members with industry connections that we are not to question your posts or are we not confirming sources again? I don't think you can both be correct, so who is actually taking down Vortex?
  8. Um, the city doesn't own the cyclones...
  9. And why discount it if they have they have demand? - if it is discounted it means nobody is paying for the event so they lower it to increase demand - it's called dynamic pricing.... Similar to other paid attractions already at KI that adjusts it's price based on demand.... On many nights the attraction remained at $40 all night and on other nights it incorporates dynamic pricing principals...
  10. That would be when Banshee opened..and it was all day on Good Friday...and then Saturday was a ghost town..
  11. I doubt they would do media day on a Saturday...the whole intent of media day is to do it a day before the park opens to build up hype to drive attendance the next few days...
  12. Um, April 11, 2020 is a Saturday...
  13. It was mentioned earlier these homeowners reside in the township and not within City of Mason boundaries, so they do not have the ability to vote in new leadership at the City....
  14. Shaggy posted earlier that the contractor for Orion has the contract to demo Vortex.....
  15. You all realize KI is not Mason's biggest employer from a true financial standpoint to the City of Mason's operating budget. But the argument can be made that having KI in their town does help other businesses indirectly... Based on number of full time employees, they don't even rank (meanwhile Great Wolf Lodge is No. 8 in full time employees). P&G is number one approaching almost 2,000 full-time employees and those salaries bring in more income tax revenue than all full-time and part time KI employees... However, due to seasonal employees, KI does crack into the top 10 in income tax withheld coming in at number 8 - so 7 employers within the City of Mason provide more income to the City of Mason than Kings Island...
  16. If you have a large tract of land and you sell part of it it to a company planning to build an amusement park and you plan to live on the part out didn't sell, well that is your own doing... Either sell the whole property and move or be glad you found a willing buying when you wanted to sell...
  17. The ole NIMBY syndrome (Not In My Back Yard)... In all likelihood the homes came after the park was there...but there will be some surrounding homes that could have long-time residents that were there prior to the park. Interesting the article says allegedly runs past 1am...that is a fact on nights park is open until 1am LOL Wonder if KI could annex themselves out of Mason and then stick it to the residents when their taxes go up to make up for the loss of revenue KI brings Mason... Contrast that to Glendale Ohio where the railroad has been there since 1851 and residents recently got passed a Quiet Zone where the trains cannot blow their horn approaching roadway intersections...clearly nobody is still alive from when that rail was installed in 1851 so people moved in knowing about the trains...
  18. If you purchased FunPix for the next year, the rest of the current year is free under the promotion...
  19. And Cedar Fair giving away 5 months of the gate "free" under the "Buy a pass for next year, get the rest of this year free" promotion isn't fair to everyone that had already purchased a pass for said year. Did anyone get a pro-rated 5 months refund...nope... I suspect we will see this trend continue - they gave away 5 months of gate and FunPix under that promotion, now trying out the FastLane, and next will be meal and drink plan and lockers...anything to push the attendance numbers up...until it ticks too many off and they don't renew...then the discounts become even more aggressive to lure new people in...interesting cycle...
  20. A guest cannot change the way the webcams face...
  21. Without getting into specifics and reasons why, when you view the KI webcams on the webpage, it is not being viewed via DDNS, IP, RTSP, Port Forwarding, VPN, P2P, or any other method most would view a camera at their home with....The KI feed is going through at least 3 different software/network platforms before the image is displayed on the webpage. Each one of those platforms, including the camera and recording device, has software. Upgrade one and it doesn't talk to the others nicely and...you guessed it...no feed to the website. Just because the webcams were not visible to the public doesn't mean they were not visible or not recordable to KI staff...it simply means there was a software issue with one of the software/server platforms from camera to website... And actually the top of the tower is climate controlled...ever notice the dripping of water onto you when standing on the top platform waiting for the elevator...that is from the AC unit above as it is climate controlled for the equipment inside...
  22. Cedar Fair early season pass sales for 2020 have increased more than 50%. For every season pass renewal, seven new season passes are being purchased. Gold passes for Cedar Point are probably a huge driver of that. Let's hope that they address this increased demand for 2020!
  23. I certainly think they should investigate that conversation before the issue arises or else we will see extensive giving away the gate like we have never seen if the number of non-renewals outnumbers the number of new passes... They gave away essentially 5 months of gate with the "buy a pass for next year and get in the rest of this year free" and they are having a great year....what would be the giveaway during a down year?
  24. Liability theories were posted long before you mentioned it, and they will continue after...
