    The park is so weird now. I remember if you went on a Monday or Tuesday early summer The Beast line would be at the bottom of the ramp up to the station, now 1 full queue house. It still moves a lot quicker than it looks, but it's just odd. I'd think with newer rides added it would thin out. Maybe the fact that they have a separator for Fast Lane holding the line and only loading one train at a time into the gates makes it back up and look a lot longer.

     

    I also hate that certain ridesk are assigning rows on rides that don't need it. I can understand doing this for rides that have longer lines. But Adventure Express had maybe a 5 minute wait. It was barely in the tunnel out of the station and they were not letting you pick what row you wanted.

    The reason for this is capacity. If the operator can fill a train they will. Also it's to keep the station from overcrowding with people wanting specific rows or someone wants a row but the rest of the group doesn't. When I worked there I would assign rows if I knew I'd be able to fill the train. But if someone requested a specific row I gave it to them with no problem. Capacity is the biggest player in it, and it also helps so people don't try and steal someone's seat if they're storing loose articles in the bin

  2. Video is a new thing. Give them a bit to hammer out bugs. Best thing you can do is report it to guest services so they know how many people it isn't working for.

    Very interested in the speakers on the oustide of the shed. Curious as to what they'll be used for.....

    Maybe music. But mainly as a way for the driver to communicate to the train if it gets stuck or needs stopped before the shed. I'm curious if they will be stopping trains for cell phones, or do what BLSC does and just turn off the effects.

  4. Hmm. Invertigo has a FunPix marker. I wonder if it's gonna get a camera. All jokes aside, I imagine the markers throughout the park like that are places where there could be roaming photos. Also one at the end of I street and by Shake Rattle and Roll. I would guess the Invertigo  may be a roaming photo outside the main gate. 

     

    Anyone got a copy of the 2016 map to compare. Id be interested to see the differences over in river town.

    Double-post (sorta...)

    While driving to work, I saw Drop Tower's lift has gone down (I believe it usually is up during the offseason)... this either means they are putting it back together and/or testing! 51 days ya'll! :D

    If I had to guess, they are doing checks and maintenance on that part to make sure it is ready for the ride to be put back together. Pretty soon we will start seeing things moving around in the park!

    What. Why did she go back a second time?  Once she finds out this guy was lying I would have canceled all communications altogether. Instead, she goes back to "confront" him. I'm not saying this is her fault but this could have been prevented altogether if she decided to leave this dude alone, It's sad. Also, how did this man drag her to the woods, I'm thinking they meet close to the main entrance. So It could have been possible to get a little attention. Anyone have more Info about it. I'm trying to decode this situation. 

    If she broke off from her friends it could have been anywhere. Kids like to think they're indestructable or want to show off and will do anything for it to happen. It's very sad that this did happen at KI and it could have been prevented. Please if anyone wants to meet up with anyone no matter where it's from tell someone who you're with, or better yet bring someone with you just to be safe. It's a dangerous world and with technology these days it is getting worse with predators

  7. I will be returning to rides this summer. If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me. Spieling was one of my biggest fears and by the end of my first season in rides I couldn't get enough of it. Don't let things like that hold you back at all. If you tell your supervisor you aren't comfortable with it then they'll be okay with that and give it to someone with experience. Plus your first few shifts until you are in full swing, they perfer you to focus only on the job and the safety of guests.

  8. I agree with the resume part. I applied with no experience and was hired into rides. Also don't worry about them offering you a job in another department. I was hired into rides first and willingly moved to Merch. Which was a lot of drama and people starting drama between eachother for no reason except that they were bored. I highly recommend rides if you are okay to work in the heat and do a lot of work.

    Yes I know. But there are quite a few other positions that pay more

    While true, for a starting position anywhere in the park, thinking in rides, merchandise, admissions and other starting jobs for anyone under 18, it is where you will have the most pay.
