  1. I like having the times split as a parent. Both of my kids go and get their candies during the day, and being able to stay up late and see all the scary stuff is a special event for them. I will say though, I'd appreciate them throwing slightly more money at the daytime event. It's been on a downward trend since the first year. No more tiny pumpkins, less candy, the "maze" now takes less than a minute of an entirely linear path.
  2. This sounds delicious and I'm still not going to bother waiting in line for this. For those too lazy to look:
  3. They aren't at fault for the delays, but as the managing company they are responsible for notifying the potential customers. They had to have known it was behind weeks if not months before hand and waited until nearly the weekend of the original opening before they told anyone. Twice. If you don't know, you don't know that's fine, but the last month or so of a new place opening your should be training and doing final details and running soft openings with employees and families of employees. Two weeks before before opening there is still major construction, the gates are locked same most of the buildings are still being put together. They knew it was going to miss the date and sat on their thumbs. This is the issue I have this entire season so far. Pulling the reservations yesterday I doubt was a last minute "hey let's do this thing", they knew, they sat, they messed up everyone's plans. What makes this whole thing worse to add a cherry on top? They either did decide last minute and didn't have the staff to cover 3x or more visitors that showed, or they did know and scheduled it which means telling the employees a week or more in advance, OR they knew and didn't tell the employees or the guests and just clustered the entire thing.
  4. The most irritating thing is that was true yesterday. They pulled the reservations without notifying anyone that made the reservations and were already at the park expecting a smaller crowd and potentially safer visit. Cedar Fair has just **** the bed this entire year with providing information to just about anyone. This is getting very quickly to where I'm considering cancelling my passes after 8 years of having one. Between Camp Cedar, park closing hour changes, the reservation system changes, the park having signs up telling you information that isn't true anymore. How much more can they simply fail to update their customers. As KingDingDong had said in another thread, "they should they care, they already have your money". I feel the only recourse here is to stop giving them my money. Maybe it's time I change up the pace and start going to Coney Island
  5. I finally got around to the French Corner yesterday, they were out of 2 of the 3 Chef Croix options so I went with the required ham and cheddar croissant It is tiny, and it is delicious
  6. Park opens today at 11am and I've been informed that not all rides open at 11. Anyone know why they open at 11 then? The kiddy land swings aren't exactly an extensive checklist. Although I did actually say "Hi" to Chef Major
  7. My wife said the Facebook KI group said there was some "gang activity", someone pulled a gun in the parking lot, and a bunch of cops (20) showed up.
  8. Shortest line I've seen is 45 minutes
  9. Not a ride, but food lines are a joke. Nearly 45 minutes for everything I've seen. Heck even the Paradise smoothie place that I've never seen more than 0 people at has 10 people in line
  10. Invertigo still existing at this point is a nitpick for me. I swear that thing is broken more than running. It does have a nice entrance feel to it though.
  11. I am skeptically excited about this. Firstly, their chicken sandwiches have almost always been a bit of a let down. Secondly, I have long since destroyed my taste buds with spicy food and you need to start getting on the extreme end for me to even taste it, so I am curious if this thing will even register. I am not surprised at the addition however, with the "chicken sandwich wars" of Pre/Early Covid days, I expect just about anyone that has access to chicken and bread to have a spicy chicken sandwich on the menu at some point.
  12. I got stuck in front of one of the quick resetting targets
  13. I'd like it to open earlier than 5pm
  14. I also didn't realize that the OG Bat used The Vortex house.
  15. Way better, any donations needed for the purchase of the new theme?
  16. Ah yes, the 28 amendment to The Constitution. The right to practice all your choices no matter where you are located.
  17. Yeah, from what I've seen KI really took the approach of the most direct "half" and not the most efficient. Need some good ole gerrymandering on these rides. My examples being Viking Fury where they could have both sides start at the top of the ship instead of one side being tucked down 1 row from the end. Scoot them back one you'll have happier guests and you don't lose any capacity. Another being Boo Blasters, maybe this one has to do with cleaning but to run every other car, and at 75% speed makes this thing terrible to wait in line for. Also The Monster, why would you not run both sides of the lines? If you want to space people why jam them all into the right side alone at the savings of a single worker. Loading and unloading will be faster, guests are more spaced out while increasing rides per hour without increasing people on the ride at one time.
  18. It was impressive actually. Much higher crowds than usual, and I think KI stuck to half staff. The line for Space Buggies was wrapped around the ride and over to the exit of the flying eagle thing. Boo Blasters and Beastie was about and hour. All the restaurants were packed.
  19. Pretty light traffic for the last few weekends, but busier than most of the summer.
  20. They are busy today. Almost like a regular day opening. Almost every ride has about a half hour wait. I'm also very pleased with the new trick or treat setup. Way better than last year
  21. The brisket for the ghost rider menu at Coney BBQ, is hecka good. I don't want to say the best I've ever had, but it is crusty, juicy, and fatty. Everything you want a brisket to be except smokey. I drove back for dinner to get seconds
  22. Now to see if I can get my kids to leave me a meal so I can try this. Plantains are tasty is cooked through.
