  1. Welcome to KIC! Being that you are new here, make sure you check and see if this is being discussed elsewhere. By all means, feel free to add to the discussion there. There are some great members here and the mods are top notch. As far as what to do with the old Crypt building, I would personally like to see a dark ride go in there, but I don't really think it's large enough for something like Flight of Fear. I do, however, wonder if something similar to Laff Track at Hersheypark could fit.
  2. Curious, but why do you care? I simply don't attend concerts I am not interested in. They have as much right as any other festival or musical act. I've been attending KI since year 2 and haven't been able to justify attending any concert there, Christian or otherwise, when I come for the rides. However, many people enjoy this kind of activity and it seems to make money, so I have no issue with it. To add to this, I would also be ok with a Muslim themed concert or any other religion, for that matter.
  3. @Shaggy, you may be sitting on a gold mine. Side note, if you see me with baggies on Congo Falls, mind your own business. I'm starting up an online biz.
  4. Well, at least they aren't offering those awful paper straws that taste like a #2 lead pencil. I also agree that the paper cups are a better option. I bought the drink wristband at Cedar Point one year and it worked well. No stowing a cup while you ride.
  5. It's not too often I see a ride return, but Phantom Theater is one that I wouldn't mind. However, I am not too confident that KI will do this. I do see Boo Blasters going and re-purposed for a new ride. Will be interesting to see what the future holds for it. As far as a new coaster, I'm sure whatever they are planning to go into the old Vortex plot is going to be a real crowd pleaser and fantastic choice. There's no coaster in recent memory that I do not believe delivered a great ride experience.
  6. I'll 2nd that. I've been on the water coaster at Great Wolf plus also the one at Dollywood Splash Country and I found them to be a lot of fun.
  7. With the cost of new trains and launch system combined with new theming, I can't imagine there will be a whole lot more spent on anything else. Would I like to see something else? Yes. Do I think there will be added layout? Just my opinion, but I can't imagine anything more than say an airtime hill similar to Kingda Ka. Of course, I could also be proven wrong, but I would still be surprised.
  8. It's going to be an interesting season of speculation until the formal announcement, for sure
  9. I wonder if this is what they think would be an alternative to selling off some of the parks? That is something that I believe is more likely to happen than leasing properties.
  10. As a possibility, couldn't the R stand for record, but not referring to the height record? We all know how Cedar Point likes to make claims to records that aren't necessarily about height, speed, etc?
  11. I agree @IBEW_Sparky. I would also like to see a Mack. I would prefer something like Copperhead Strike and would be a great addition.
  12. IMO, I think a surf coaster has the potential to be something cool to bring back to KI. I would even name it King Kobra. B&M can design it with as many inversions as can be accomplished with said model and whatever KI is willing to invest in it. Like others have said, I would wait and see how well this coaster is received by the GP and monitor any reliability issues.
  13. I would really like to see some retro Beast t-shirts like when I was a kid. The paws were some raised material that was poofy. I think some parts of the lettering too. I mean, since nostalgia is making a comeback at KI, why not?
  14. If they're "just fine", how did they lose 100 million on it's latest movie Strange New World and also is down 27% overall?
  15. Without getting too political, the reason Disney+ is failing has a lot more to do with the President of Lucasfilm and the Marvel titles than Chapek. The large majority of people tuning in are not interested in woke content. Kathleen Kennedy has been trying to steer Star Wars in that direction, which is not going over well. The reason that SW has had any success is due to Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. I don't really know enough to comment on the managing of the Disney parks.
  16. It's not, but it is shrinking, which is what I was saying.
  17. I have not personally been there, but this past summer, my brother went to Bush Gardens Tampa and he said it's a fantastic park. I trust his opinion as we have experienced a lot of parks together and pretty much have the same taste. I want to go there myself.
  18. I think this will be a great addition to KI. As much as I hate to see Octoberfest go, it seems phasing it out has been happening over the years. I do like suggestions that I have read about including it more in the International Street part of KI. Seems very fitting and I would love to see it become more international like it was, years ago.
  19. Nice trip report. I want to make some suggestions, but I'm not sure if what parks you have visited previously. This park is on my bucket list of places I want to visit.
  20. I have not been to Six Flags Over Georgia since I was a very small child. I don't really remember much about my visit there. I really need to make a trip there. It is definitely on my bucket list of parks to visit. Also, I enjoyed your trip report and you took some great pics.
  21. The link is not taking me to a FB posting. Not sure what happened there.
  22. I rode Zodiac when I was a kid myself. It was a neat ride and I was also unnerved by the chains holding you. In all fairness, the rides like that I always found more terrifying than any coaster. The Skyline also was a nervous experience for me. I don't enjoy the hanging feeling.
  23. Thanks for the assist on beefing up my coaster count, Fox19!
  24. I had not heard about this incident Shaggy, so thanks for the update. I rode it this past summer and it is a pretty good coaster, but needed some TLC.
  25. Cue the Giga bathroom that I predicted when Orion was being speculated about.
