  1. Had a Reuben from Quite Frankly last night. Not best Reuben ever, but decent. They will be where I work on Tuesday. Was going to go tonight, I am going to enjoy quiet time at home cleaning. Exciting times! We have food trucks at work a few times a month. I am not a huge fan of Urban Vistro. Roll With It is not bad. I love Street Pops (owners treated us). We had one that sold smoothies a few weeks ago, (owners treated us, too - they do that somewhat frequently obviously.) Can't recall the name, but it was really good. So if you see one there serving smoothies let me know. It's not the Italian Ice one. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  2. I have not seen them yet. However, I have been working a lot including weekends so I might have missed the times they have been open. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  3. The one thing with Carowinds is they have put a lot into the park. It's changing to be much more like a CP kind of feel, IMO. Even the entrance looks more CP. You can tell they are investing in the park and are owned by the same people. My 2nd experience at Carowinds was better than the first. I think partly because they have definitely put a lot into every aspect of the park. KD also has Avalanche. I love that coaster so much. I305 is one of my favorite coasters. I have to agree that Dominator blows Rougarou away, it is possibly my favorite floorless. The experience at KD really mirrored KI. I love KI, so it was a better experience for me just from the "homey" feel to it. Dorney has great rides, too. Possessed is similar to Wicked Twister, but it far surpasses WT. Their Wild Mouse is a lot of fun, too. Love their flats. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  4. You can't go wrong with either park. KD definitely has a homier feel because it is similar to KI at least when you walk in the gate. Carowinds is great, too. Fury is an awesome coaster. I think if you have a Platinum pass already, go to Dorney then KD. Dorney is small, you can do pretty much all you want in just a few hours. Just throwing that out there so you can possibly get more for your money. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  5. The house sauce has always been there. It's delicious. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  6. Every time someone's trolling this song goes through my head. http://youtu.be/ozvYg2i3pS0 Gotta love 80's cartoon theme songs. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  7. They day we were at Dorney, there were very few people in the park. In the parks defense, it was during the week at the tail end of a category 1 hurricane from what I was told. Nothing like riding Steel Force and being pelted with what felt like millions shards of glass to your face. Good times. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  8. From your photo you must be one of the few people in this world that love Saturn.Kinda funny that this is something Devan would have said to you.
  9. I have been on many trips with the Nightmare one. Best trips I have ever been on. Others would agree. Ironically, we talk more about things that happen en route than actual parks. Must plan another trip soon. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  10. After visiting 2 Six TX parks and KK, I am really hoping for an RMC. I didn't get the hype until experiencing an RMC. I have heard a lot of argument regarding why it is not going to happen, but it's what I want. I am sure KI or CF doesn't care what I want. However, my birthday is about the time KI opens and it would be a great birthday gift. Oh, if Mean Streak received TLC from RMC, that would be great. I didn't ride NTG preRMC, but was told it was compatible to Mean Streak. Two completely different experiences. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  11. With weather named coasters seemingly all the craze, perhaps it will be Thundercat or Catnado. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  12. There are far more annoying things than this on this site than you trying to figure out the song. They seem to play the same songs roughly at the same time or so it seems. Any idea what time frame? I am going to be there this week (that's funny) and can see if I can catch it. Unless we strike gold and guess right. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  13. ^I love irony. Hope that's the one. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  14. Maybe "Sand In My Shoes" by Dido. Picks up about :40 https://youtu.be/_lrVymj9xHY
  15. Maybe the cat has his tongue. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  16. Just throwing out what could be plausible. I have read much of the thread if not all and don't recall that being mentioned. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  17. Maybe they are not doing a coaster at all. Maybe they are clearing the land for water park expansion. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  18. Obviously. I think if opinions didn't vary, it would be rather boring. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  19. I don't get a lot of things about this. From reports I have read, people or a person heard him say he wanted to play with them and the mom was distracted. Looks like the bystanders would have said something and alerted the mom or tried to stop the child themselves since they obviously were paying enough attention to their interactions. I think what upsets me is how little emotion was in what I presume the mom's voice. She didn't sound upset. While some people can be calm under unusual circumstances, having a young child in a gorilla cage should provoke more of a response of panic. Or maybe that's just me.

  20. Let's see, I strongly prefer KI over CP. I also prefer in no particular order KD, Carowinds, Worlds of Fun, Dorney and a bunch of other parks over CP. Let's start at the bottom of my list. Six Flags America, CP. I heard I need to go back to Six Flags America though because I might have gone on a bad day. While the view from Millie is nice, you get an equally beautiful view of Lake Erie from another park - Waldamere Park on a coaster that far surpasses Millie named Ravine Flyer II. What an amazing coaster. I305 far surpasses Millie. It doesn't need something pretty to distract you from how amazing it is. The only wow at CP is Maverick and that is only since it received new restraints. I am hoping KI doesn't get anything like Maverick though. I want something more unique to KI than what other Cedar Fair parks have to offer. I really do not want an Intamin, I am sure that is not happening. I really do not think that B&M can one up Banshee, but would love to see them try. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  21. Personally, if we get another B&M, I hope they raise the bar like they were able to do with Banshee. I don't know if they can improve on what *I* think is perfection (Banshee). I would love to see them try and succeed. At minimum, if it is a B&M, I want it to be unique at least between Cedar Fair parks. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  22. I am going once I finish my meal. No joke. I far prefer going for positive reasons than complaints. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  23. I just witnessed a guest berating and screaming at a food service employee for something beyond the employee he was speaking with control. The guest was rude, he was screaming, using profanity. While I know it's frustrating, treating people in such a manner is not right. I told the guest to go to guest services and file a complaint if he felt the need to scream at someone. He walked off. I know some park employees in management read the forums, but complaining here or screaming at employees is not going to help. Go to guest services or ask to speak to a manager or supervisor. Not all food service employees are lazy, some actually are trying. A little kindness goes a long way. The employee thanked me for speaking up because he truly is trying to do the best that he can. With all honesty, I have seen this individual several times. I have yet to see him not working. He doesn't ever come across as lazy or that he doesn't care. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  24. Honestly, it's not on the meal plan. It could be full price. It's a nice perk to have a slight up charge instead of full price. The one during Haunt was well worth paying $5 for. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
  25. Do not use my pics on any social media especially if it's in the form of complaint. While I understand some people are displeased with Kings Island, stop stirring up stuff. Seriously. These people are in line. No one knows when the shirts were removed. No one knows if it was addressed. What if the gal in the photo was telling them to put their shirts on? Were you there? Did you hear? These employees hear so many complaints. Adding to how you think it may have been handled vs how it was has no validity if you were not there. If they handled it correctly, they do not need to be talked to. If not, we can't prove it. Don't presume. Sent from my SM-G860P using Tapatalk
