  1. Why does Kings Island necessarily deserve a better coaster than CGA?
  2. Hopefully we see this become a company wide raise. Cedar Point is not the only park with staffing issues in the chain.
  3. Immediately sounds amazing, but many employees (myself included) have only completed a small part if not none of their training. I hope people don't take the "immediately" too literally.
  4. Why not just use this one that's active? That last one hasn't been active in over a month, Also, I feel like Zephyr just underwent this treatment a couple seasons ago, right? Does Zephyr get rebuilt every season?
  5. They may also be doing what KD did with their FoF. The indoor queue is much smaller because a large portion of it was turned into a Haunt maze. This extended queue could be to prevent people from spilling out into the main path on a busy day,
  6. I can see them turning the midway from BLSC to Coney into what Cedar Point did with the Gemini midway.
  7. If this ride makes it in the top 10 steel coasters at the Golden Ticket Awards next year I will print out this page and eat my words.
  8. Imagine cheaping out on having a good ride so your 1/3 scale faded Eiffel Tower can remain the most prominent part of your skyline.
  9. So how far are the 'Giga-Stans' in the grieving process? Feel free to add a circle around where you are.
  10. I really hope this isn't the final layout, it just feels off to me for some reason.
  11. I'm not sure on the likelihood of a B&M Floorless coming to any park. There have only been two built in the last 10 years, and both of them overseas (India and China). The last B&M Floorless built in the U.S. was Hydra the Revenge at Dorney in '05. Parks seem to be going with B&M's more modern models which is why so many probably expect a giga because of Cedar Fair's recent investments.
  12. If Rebel Yell (now Racer '75) is getting retracked, do you guys think our Racer could be getting the same treatment soon?
  13. So are they new seats or just painted old ones?
  14. I might be in the minority here and I also don't know if this has already been said on this thread but I would personally love an RMC T-rex. Hopefully the raptors do very well because a larger model would, imo, be better than a giga. I would much rather have anything by RMC than B&M or Intamin.
  15. Employee comp tickets should work until the end of Winterfest, that includes Haunt.
  16. Small bump but I made a little video of rides from my Holiwood Nights Trip. Hope you guys enjoy!
  17. Spieling is just kind of a learn as you do it kind of thing. There's no training for it just kind of watch and listen to others do it and try it yourself and add your own little twist.
  18. It was so nice having people tell us to drive safe and thanking us for sticking it out. I was checking bars that last hour and everyone was so friendly and knew what they were doing and it made that last hour of work awesome. Thanks to everyone who came out for Coasterstock!
  19. I think it's just a dumping area for dirt and things like that but I could definitely see a coaster going through that area. I also think there might be a reason besides Haunt for keeping SoB's station...
  20. Thank you for posting this. My first ever day of work is Friday and trust me we'll be working our hardest but be patient as there are a few first years on our crew. We will certainly try our best but it's hard to be perfect without a lot of practice beforehand. The good thing about this is that we can only get better from here.
  21. Great video! I was wondering how they got the front left of the truck smashed. I wonder if those pictures at the beginning show any sort of hint at what's in the shed.
  22. I hope all this wood doesn't attract bees or other stinging insects
  23. KI's Invertigo is in a great location for the ride it is. Its leaving wouldn't clear up much space for anything and it's so far from everything else in Action Zone. Plus it's cool to look at coming in the park. I think Invertigo is safer than a lot of other CF boomerangs.
  24. The problem with them being close to Mystic Timbers is that's quite a walk for someone to use on Diamondback. Banshee's are across the path, MT's will be close to the entrance, so that would be quite an inconvenience to walk all the way over there to use the lockers. But I'd still take walking to MT for a locker than having bins in the station.
  25. There would have to be lockers installed near the ride. I'd say take some of the games sitting outside the gift shop and replace them with lockers. The only problem I can think of would be blocking the windows of the giftshop.
