  1. Get rid of one coaster- The Poll

    ^might not be a bad idea aesthetically (although it wouldn't hold up monetarily) to just swap Backlot and Firehawk for that reason.
  2. Get rid of one coaster- The Poll

    I abstain from voting. I feel like our coaster line-up right now covers a wide variety of different qualities that different riders may enjoy. Even the coasters I like less than others, or ones that aren't meant to be for someone like me (Great Pumpkin, for example) do fill their own niche. I also feel there is room, without removal, to add coasters that would fill different gaps in the lineup. If any coaster were removed, it would be /someone's/ favorite coaster, and that doesn't sit well with me. So I vote not even one!
  3. Winterfest Questions

    I assume they will have seating/ skate adjustment/ etc area within the greater fountain area. I really can't imagine they would say "sorry if you have to sit, you can't go back."

    I'm still curious if we will get an announcement at all during Winterfest. I felt that Kings Island delayed their announcement in a large part because so many people who might otherwise attend were likely to be drawn to the Steel Vengeance announcement instead that day. However, I believe at some point Don Helbig said there would be an announcement at a later date. I expected it to come sometime between then and the end of the regular season. Then sometime before the end of Haunt. But still nothing... Having Winterfest come again to the park is going to be enough of a media attention draw that an announcement isn't really necessary, but I hope we get one anyway.
  5. New Director of Communications - Chad Showalter

    It makes me really happy that in addition to being imminently qualified for the job, he is enthusiastic about Kings Island in particular on top of that! Looking forward to seeing his work in the future!

    ^I hope so too, but I think they would have made at least a little bit of a deal about it in their advertising if they were going to do that, to try to prompt more fall sales. It will probably be all passholders next spring. Hopefully they will learn their lesson and limit it for 2019, though, when there will be a new coaster again (I hope!)

    Finally I will be able to serve authentic Kings Island cuisine to my dinner party guests! If I could get a full tray of the corn pudding and a whole smoked turkey breast from the Island Smokehouse tho...
  8. Official: WinterFest 2017

    I believe I heard the snow tubing will be in Action Zone, but I didn't follow-up question how it would be handled/ where exactly. I figured with just a month left, I'd see soon enough!

    Master Blaster, I believe.
  10. Scooby Let Me Down.

    I did notice the last handful of times I rode this year that when I would shoot a target, often it would respond in the way it always does when hit (light goes off, it moves however is usual for that target) but my score wouldn't go up. My gun was working but something was wrong in the system. I rode enough earlier in the season to know what was a typical score for me, that decreased by about a third on average after whatever changed and I noticed hit targets not scoring. I really hope it gets some love if it isn't going to be replaced.
  11. Current wait times

    Off-season depression is definitely a thing for me. I discovered last year that it's a little easier if I go out and walk at a nearby park every day, because, being a housewife, it can be too easy for me to go into hibernation and only leave the house once a week or so. Having friends on the boards and elsewhere to talk to also make it easier to take. I'm glad the off-season will be shorter this year.

    It doesn't do anything for Tapatalk, just alerts in the notifications list of the site itself every time someone reacts to a post. I had to turn it off because it became obtrusive for me. Tapatalk doesn't seem to understand the new reaction bar as being "likes" for the way it does things. I just noticed that if I go to my own profile there is a listing of reactions and mentions that is formatted enough like the notifications list used to work on Tapatalk that it suits me to just look at that instead. Since I can easily add pictures directly through the forum software too now and that was the initial reason I used Tapatalk, I think I can personally stop using Tapatalk in conjunction with KIC entirely now.

    ^I would like the same. It went away when the switch was made to multiple choices for us to "react" to a post. I find the multiple reactions cute, but I rarely find myself using something other than the heart.
  14. I don't tend to listen to podcasts, in part because I don't process auditory information nearly as well as I do text, although I'm trying to work on it. I would definitely listen to one if KIC put it out, though. It seems to me that it would be a fair amount of work, though, so it would really require someone with a passion for it to make it happen. Now that you aren't the one "running the show" here, maybe you could carve out the time to be able to make a go of it? I know you have more going on in your life otherwise. But I also know your passion for KIC and KI in general, and that you have some prior experience with similar things. I can't think of a better person to spearhead such a project.
