  1. Btw, the day of the “storming,” September 20th, is the first day of Haunt, so the park will be open, but not at the time it is scheduled (3 AM in NM, which would be 5 AM here). I mean, I don’t want to encourage them waiting that long to announce but if they did really want to use the sudden piquing of Area 51 interest...
  2. If it is, they can definitely claim the “most successful viral marketing campaign for a coaster” record. Millions are “going” to clap dem alien cheeks
  3. So, is someone from KIC going to be at the park today to get pics of the new poster that is hopefully there? I’m going to guess today’s might be Flying Ace, or Vortex.
  4. Yep. I arranged a small get-together during the season passholders’ late night ERT earlier this year, which included Viking Fury. There were only a handful of us participating but we did get some others to join in, including a row of approximately ten year old boys opposite me and a friend, who didn’t know why they were saying it but enjoyed joining in once prompted If we ever have a late ERT on it again like that, I’m going to try to get a group together more than a few hours before. There were others waiting in line when we started the chant who tried to get it going on the next ship,
  5. My husband said earlier today “I’m surprised nobody has tried to steal those.” I’m beginning to think maybe he had a point Although it’s still humorous to me to imagine someone trying to “sneak” out past about 100 employees between X-Base and the front gates, lugging an approximately 3 by 4 foot rigid poster. If KI wants to start making prints/posters available again, I’d rather a Flight of Cheer one for my holiday decorating...
  6. Nothing that sticks out to me as being the likely meaning of cmpd for sure: https://www.acronymfinder.com/CMPD.html (And the source of “the scale is wrong” is one new poster’s unsubstantiated claim) edit: oh if you’re talking about the tiny scale on the first page, yes, it is wrong, by 2x IIRC, as was verified about 1000 posts back. However, the absolute coordinates of all the footers are not incorrect, and it is where people have derived the measurements.
  7. Tone is remarkably hard to convey via text. You may have thought it was too ridiculous of a suggestion for anyone to think you were serious, but believe me, whew. Sometimes we get people who are deadly serious about their pet ideas which most people would think are silly. Unofficial “commandment” of these boards is you don’t threaten Adventure Express, too
  8. Ridership: Flight of Fear has given 10,806,406 rides since 1996, the 20th-most in park history. Its record year was 1998, when 1,078,021 rides were given. (Numbers through 2009 season) source: KI Central of all places https://KICentral.com/rides/flight-of-fear/ (and I think they’re trying to say with those numbers “somebody done fouled up on the posters” so I wonder if this new one will end up in a version 2 today too)
  9. I don’t get it... I just hope they don’t put a J to the left and then N and G to the right (assuming FoF is left of the other two so far)
  10. Is there any way you could get a pic of all three on the fence? Also, can you confirm which version of the other two posters are up now?
  11. It’s a wireframe view of the UFO half that’s in the queue
  12. where is this on the fence, related to the other two?
  13. Yes, that makes sense, but my point is, the replacement poster doesn’t have any of those words that go along with testing for vertigo... I swear, trying to make sense of this is making even less sense.
  14. Oooh ooh, or, stick with me now... maybe this has nothing to do with the Giga and instead it’s telegraphing that next year recaR sdrawkcaB will make its triumphant return!!! A girl can hope.
  15. I like to imagine there’s at least someone at one of the ropes right now waiting to fast-walk across to get us pictures
  16. So the “testing” that was included on the original Invertigo poster (I apologize if any of this is a repeat) seems to mostly center around what tests would be done on a patient to determine the source of dizziness. Which makes sense because the words above that also all relate to dizziness: syncope (fainting), oscillopsia (involuntary eye movements that can cause dizziness), and vestibular (the body system whose disruption causes dizziness). A “Romberg” test evaluates the subject’s proprioception, which is our sense of where the body is in space. It can be used to evaluate intoxicat
  17. Ever since I discovered the posters had indeed been switched out yesterday, I’ve been trying to figure out a scenario in which it makes sense. I’ve failed to come up with anything particularly satisfactory. I just don’t feel like the specific details that were changed had deeper meaning that made it important enough to “get right.” I’ll admit I could be wrong. But if the second version of the posters was so much more “correct” in its information, why would the first posters even have been printed/mounted? Because they are so similar, how was the mistake, if it was simply a mistake, recog
  18. Back to RFMP. I’m rather fond of Read the Flaming Manual Page https://www.acronymfinder.com/RFMP.html
  19. I’m definitely going to need to stop by and take a pic of the posters again at some point before I leave just in case they change again
  20. I call shenanigans! No way could Invertigo have the same ridership numbers in the afternoon as the morning because I rode it in the meantime! Couldn’t they have updated it when they redid it?! *grumbles about inaccuracies*
  21. Yeah That’s a menu on the corner of the food stand, it’s an illusion that makes it look farther back
  22. I don’t know why either. I honestly suspected the panorama without them was trolling, because I knew darn well they HAD been there Especially when I was reading this thread finally on my way back and there they were. Very surprised they were different when I looked closely.
  23. So, on the Invertigo poster, even tho the words changed, “RFMP” are the same under testing, which makes me feel those initials are somehow significant. And under syncing, a word starting with O was replaced by one with P... Orion and Polaris reference somehow?
  24. Ok, so they changed them out. The graph on the Firehawk one is significantly different than it was this morning^ ^now I’ll look to see if there are any differences on Invertigo in a bit. Nothing jumps out yet tho. Edit: everything between the brain and tests administered is a little different ^this morning ^now
  25. Posters are currently up. If they were down, it was temporary.
