  1. Been going to Kings Island for over 30 years and the Grand Carnivale was some of the most fun I've had there and the execution was very well done. The entertainment offerings were more than what I expected and the parade itself I thought was pretty darn good. One complaint, and it's not even Kings Island at fault, but the level of rudeness of some guests towards park employees was unreal. I was a rides employee for 5 years about 10-15 years ago and I know how guests can get, but man last night during the parade I couldn't believe the way some guests acted. Blatantly ignoring some employees who were asking politely to stay behind the white line. Right in front of me this poor employee asked a guy to please stay behind the line to which the guest responded "nah I'm leaving" and nudged the employee out of the way and kept walking, less than a foot away from the moving floats. Now I know theres not much room to walk, especially where we were standing, but man. The level of rudeness is epic these days. Food I had was good, not great, but still good. The reggae band they had was wonderful as well. And the french acrobat hanging from the Eiffel Tower was very good. Here's a few shots I got from to carnivale
  2. Sinking? You mean settling and packing down, a solid base and properly drained gravel base will not sink into the mud. Actually weeds and grass will grow in the gravel on top of the weed barrier and if grass/weed killer is kept on the gravel(and weeds are pulled) then they won't have to mow. However it is still about the same amount of work. This. As a horticulturist, it makes me scratch my head that landscape fabric is still sold and advertised as preventing weeds. Using it for other applications is one thing, but my tip of the day if you're thinking about doing some landscaping, skip this step and save you some money. Plant material is going to grow wherever it wants and if that means soil drifting into gravel or whatever media, and weed seeds blowing into said soil, they're going to grow. Mother nature at its finest
  3. ^ I like the light fixtures on the building. Nice little touch
  4. Or park in the water park parking lot and leave all valuables and unnecessary items in your car until you are done. Thats what we do. Its really no hassle and saves you however much a locker is. I haven't bought a locker in years.
  5. looks as though the que house is nearing completion. i see railings
  6. no confirmation yet, but it seems as tho they are going along with a similar design, as far as entrance, like Maverick has. So i'm sure it is a test seat
  7. They arent there anymore. But I'm willing to bet they'll be back come opening weekend once all the construction in the area is finished
  8. I like it. Its exactly what I expected. And the color of the wood and the colors from the logo go hand in hand. What were some of you expecting, a digital video board lol
  9. new views on the webcam. Vortex, and Racer views i have seen so far and the DB plaza
  10. i saw a backhoe working in the crypt que yesterday on the webcam. im sure its getting an overhaul
  11. If i remember correctly not all CF parks charge seperate admission for their waterparks. I went to Dorney Park 2 summers ago and I don't remember having to pay a seperate fee to go to Wildwater Kingdom.
