  1. Last year I remember that, at least early on, they were not letting that main "crypt keeper MC" guy speak over the mic at the entrance as he had in years past. We even asked him about it one night and he said he had no idea why he wasnt allowed to do it but it wasn't up to him. Did he ever get the mic back later last year? We really missed his joker-like laugh echoing around the entrance and i hope he's given it back this year. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. Same as above. I used to flop a couple bucks down to throw some rings or a football, but haven't done it since they switched to the cards. Made no sense to me and I hope they change it back.
  3. Their poster hanger has weekends off. Built into their contract.
  4. Hey Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike! Guess what day it is! Hump day! *Goes over a hill*
  5. I'm concerned that these roller coasters are out there copulating like that.
  6. I think it should be named "Paul". It's just a reasonable name. You can trust a Paul to be reliable.
  7. They brought the trams back this year, but they were lost to the potholes. At night, when the air is still; you can still faintly hear their horns from deep underground.
  8. No Don, don't jump! It's not worth it! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  10. I didn't notice any area specific music besides I-Street and Rivertown.
  11. I read some of the negative thoughts about the fountains on Friday, then went to the park on Saturday and have to say that I was impressed with the fountains. I don't know the fountain total from before, but the little that I saw of them looked like there was more spray going on than before. Granted, it was rainy and I didn't stick around to watch them much, but I thought they looked pretty good. I was even more impressed with the paint jobs on the buildings and them flying nice big international flags.
  12. I remember the year it was announced and seeing the very awesome detailed model of it that they displayed near the park entrance. I was so hyped for it. I live near Dayton but my friend and I would make trips out to the closed park in the off season just to sit in our cars and look at it in different stages of it being built. It was definitely a beautiful structure and was a sight driving up to the park. When it opened I made 3 different trips to the park in the mornings to ride and it seemed to be down whenever I got there. I would only have an hour or so to wait so I'd have to leave wit
  13. It's too long gone to hope to bring back the Smurf Ride, so I'll go with turning a Racer train backwards. Image source: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/files/26_106.jpg
  14. I hope I get to see the Season Pass Bass sometime this year. Is it usually swimming around the beer garden?
  15. One of the main issues is kids. Little boys do not care or have the attention spans to be careful when they go. I still have to get on my nephews when they visit to A). put the seat up when you go and B.) pay attention to what you're doing, but it still looks like they had a sprinkler system go off in the bathroom when they leave. I can't speak for the adults who can't handle this.
  16. I wonder, does a new 2019 pass give food and merch discounts for 2018? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  17. This will be relatively short, because it was a very short trip. My wife and I didn't get passes this year and were planning on getting them for 2019 and just using the normal 1-free-2018-ticket promotion. When they announced we'd be getting the rest of 2018 with a new pass we were over the moon. I had to work until 6PM and the park closed at 8PM and it typically takes us 40 minutes to drive there, but we had nothing else to do so we took off to get our passes processed and spend an hour in the park for the first time in 2018. We lost about 20 minutes wading through Tennis traffic b
  18. I know it. This is why my wife and I typically get a pass every other year. They never give that great of perks for renewals. A Fast Lane and bring a friend free ticket? How about if you renew you get free Fun Pix pass for the next season or something? We did happen take this season off and are very happy that they decided to give the rest of 2018 with the purchase of a 2019 pass, so we're in for next year.
  19. I'm happy about the cars. Was a little disappointed not to hear anything about a Racer refurbish though. Would love to hear that it's getting a nice new paint job at least.
  20. Wouldn't that be Adventure Express? Gets you all excited then lets you down at the end?
  21. We took this season off from getting a pass and I was just expecting the normal "1 free ticket for 2018". Getting the rest of the 2018 including Haunt and Winterfest is really above and beyond what I'd hope for. We're for sure getting passes now.
  22. That's great! Hope they stick to it all season.
