  1. I still get "internal server error" on my phones (my primary phone---Iphone 8--- and my in the park phone ---galaxy j3--- I have my season pass on them but no tickets(i have my ticket in my email on both phones I reset my password on the computer with no luck,just now got "your email or password doesn't match our records" this is so frustrating. I LOVE TECHNOLOGY. Later, Mark P.S. I will be there for my 11:00 reservation regardless hopefully guest services can get me s
  2. Thank you coaster sally for the response---I as many if not all of us need to visit KI and get to one of my "happy places" before I go crazy. No Supercross, no Indy(grand prix,500 and Brickyard) has got me stressed to no end---hopefully tomorrow will fix that. Later, Mark
  3. I'm having the same issue---I can't find the health screening on the app. I have the "ticket"(my only reservation) in my email but don't want to drive 2 hours to be turned away. Please help. Later, Mark
  4. Hey all---Didn't KI say last weekend was the last weekend for the ET for 2019? Maybe they are starting to hang the Winterfest lights or something. Hopefully we will get our cams back soon. Later, Mark
  5. I frequently go to the park solo and am a single rider and if paired up with someone I generally talk to the person I am paired with and their corresponding group to feel it out and at times I have let my paired rider ride solo on the same train with their group if I get a wierded out vibe from them and then I ride the next train. I am generally talkative and friendly in line and don't care about getting paired but sometimes solo is the right choice. I know this sometimes throws people off that are counting pairs so that they can ride the same train as their group but what can you do? Wh
  6. I live in Rushville,In---about 20 miles to Greensburg/I-74 so around 80-90 miles.(I checked on my NYE trip---95 miles parking spot to parking lot) Later, Mark
  7. Thanks for the reply. Later, Mark
  8. Question--- Is the Firehawk layout the same as it was when it was X-Flight or has it been altered to fit it's current location? Were there any elements like turns, twists, hills, inversions, heights etc... added(probably not) or removed or altered to make it work where it is now? I'm not talking about raising or lowering footers or supports so it will fit in the different terrain elevation changes. Thanks in advance for the info, Mark
  9. If this policy is still in effect in 2019 here is my idea on how I will deal with it---Not for everyone but for myself and some others it seems reasonable. First off I have a $20 Android Tracfone and I get a $100 1 year service card every year and that has enough data and minutes for my 20 or so days a year at the park/parks. ( I just use this phone so I can be reached in case of an emergency and to take a few pictures and play with in line) So it costs me $100 a year to not bring in and risk damage/losing my more way expensive IPhone 8. Her is my solution---I am considering gettin
  10. I finally rode Mystic Timbers for the first time on Sat. (I wanted to wait till the "new coaster" lines died down and with the small crowd on Sat. it was time.)I actually rode 3 times in roghly an hour. For my first ride after talking in line I was advised that my first ride should be front row so that is what I did and it was great, from the time you leave the station it was all go, even the lift hill had some "story lines" to keep you involved so never a dull moment. Front row was great. For my second ride I rode back row ,it was awesome getting pulled over the first drop and throu
  11. I haven't seen it addressed yet so--- Are there going to be "big boy seats" available on MT? At 5'6" and around 275 I rode Storm Chaser at Kentucky Kingdom last year in the 1st and 5th rows as well as Maverick at CP in multiple rows. Hopefully MT is as forgiving to my size and shape as those rides. later, Mark
  12. Hello, I am roughly 5'6" and around 275 lbs. On every trip I make it a point to ride The Bat, The Eiffel Tower ,Boo Blasters and the Ki & MV RR (train) and occasionally ride other things as well.I rode Viking Fury last season with no problem (I also rode Cedar Points version of VF with no issues as well) the only issue is like stated by jcgoble3 that the lap bar might be a little loose on the others riding under the same lap bar, but if I recall correctly I was in a row with two kids 6-8 years old and no more than 60 pounds and we all enjoyed the ride. I also take a KI tr
  13. Hey all, I have a question--- Is there a reason that they are not running the fountain/fountains in the pond behind Hanks? The reason I ask is the fish that are in there are "less active" than in previous seasons and I was thinking this had something to do with it.(I think I read, saw or heard somewhere that these types of fountains agitate the water which keeps algae down and helps fish survive in stagnant waters) As I get older my activities at the park have changed---I no longer ride from open to close, instead I walk the park, enjoy some milder rides and attraction
  14. Good to hear that the train was up and running. I kinda guessed that it wasn't running yet as they may have been working on/with the new crossing for the WWC path.(I saw it leave the station on Fri. with no passengers.) I hope the next time I get to KI I will get to do my (since I was a kid 3)ET, Boo Blasters and KI & MV Railroad. Later, Mark
