  1. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if they're called FunBands
  2. Thanks so much for sharing! It's disappointing to see that particular guest had such a bad experience due to Dorney Park's lack of training. I just Googled "Fastpay Dorney Park." Most results I got were for 2013. Some were for 2014. I have a feeling FastPay is no longer a thing. I really hope Cedar Fair gives it another go in the future! As the article pointed out, the park REALLY could benefit from it a lot if it really puts forth the effort in research and development both before and after the system is implemented.
  3. My apologies in advance if this idea has already been explored on this forum. As many of you theme park enthusiasts are probably aware, some of the world's leading theme park companies -- namely Universal & Disney -- are investing in RFID technology or similar technologies for their guests to use for annual passes, FastPasses, credit card transactions, room keys, etc. Does anyone think it probable that Cedar Fair might bring a similar system to its parks? Ideas for what it could be used for in Cedar Fair parks include the following: Season passes Credit/Debit cards for food, drinks, merch., etc. Lockers Fast Lane FunPix Games Location tracking for lost guests Rides' alternate access for guests with special needs For those of you who are not aware, the traditional use of such technology comes in the form of wristbands. Disney kicked it off with MagicBands. Universal is joining the movement with TapuTapu. Although I am not aware of parks using anything other than wristbands, RFID technology in theme parks could also be used in keychains, lanyards, or merely any other accessory. Cons: Merging so many things into one platform can lead to unimaginable consequences for the park and its guests should the system ever crash, get hacked, etc. Pros: I believe that such a system would be very beneficial for guests and Kings Island, as it would minimize the number of cards, codes, wrist bands, etc. that the Park issues each day to its guests. The upfront cost for Cedar Fair for the initial implementation would be obnoxious. However, if implemented correctly, it could save money for the park further down the road.

  4. Never mind! I found for myself. It's listed twice on the park map actually. Park map can be found here: https://www.visitkingsisland.com/images/uploads/file/KI2016Map.pdf
  5. I know this is a rather old thread, but can anyone provide a link or direct quote which explicitly says that recording on rides is illegal? I've heard the phrase muttered many times by both guests and ride operators over the years, but I'm still not quite convinced it is actually a state law.
  6. I'm actually a little surprised at how long it has taken for it to go vertical. Considering they made the announcement for MT a little earlier in the season than they did for DBack or Banshee, I thought they would start going vertical almost immediately after the announcement.

  7. Sorry to keep everyone waiting in such suspense! The results are in the link below. The survey is still live, meaning you can still respond to the survey if you haven't already. https://www.surveymonkey.com/results/SM-FZXLN8DM/ Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
  8. Sorry to keep everyone waiting in suspense. Here are the results thus far! The survey is still live in case you have not yet responded and still wish to do so. https://www.surveymonkey.com/results/SM-FZXLN8DM/
  9. Hey, friends! This doesn't have anything to do with construction. It does, however, have to do with Mystic Timbers nonetheless. In a different thread/forum here, there has been much discussion about what the spoken nickname should be for Mystic Timbers. MT works well when typing, but it doesn't sound good when speaking. Seeing as so many people aren't huge fans of the name, "Mystic Timbers," we've been trying to come up with a nickname for the ride. And we still have more than eight months to come up with a nickname, because the ride won't open until April at the earliest. What's your favorite nickname? Please feel free to take the survey below! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6PSDS2Z
  10. We may have essentially no say in the actual name, theme, or layout of any ride at Kings Island. We do, however, get a bit of say on what people call rides. After many names have been put forth, I have created a survey for what we should call Mystic Timbers when speaking informally! Please, feel free to complete the survey! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6PSDS2Z Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
  11. In general, most parks have been fortunate enough to not be sabotaged to any level that extreme, whether it be by gangs, terrorists, or thugs. That is assuming that you were referring to people from the outside trying to burn it down. As for names from the GP...Oh dear...let's see...most will probably call it "THE Mystic Timbers," "The Beast," "That Timber Ride," or "The Wooden Ride" (not realizing how many others there are in the park). It will be atrocious, almost guaranteed...no matter what nickname enthusiasts give it. Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
  12. I see what you did there, you evil person...changing my words ha ha Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
  13. And think MT works fine for when conversing on here and when messaging people. However, I was trying to find a slang name for speaking...simply because Mystic Timbers really isn't that great of a name...nor is MT. Misty and MyTi (mai tai) both sound good to me though. I'm not a huge fan of the "mitty" pronunciation personally.
  14. I was thinking the drink, personally. And you can have a virgin mai tai. Granted, a virgin mai tai is basically just lime juice. But it still works for those who don't drink Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
  15. That's it, TB! I've been trying to think of what Mystic Timbers' unofficial name is going to be. I was thinking it would just be Timber....but no, MyTi all the way! Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
