  1. https://attractionsmagazine.com/universal-orlando-to-make-major-announcement-august-1-new-theme-park/ In just about a week maybe we'll find out what all that land is they're buying?
  2. Not sure if anyone else remembers, but around 2008-2011(?) I think there was an online store: kimarketplace.com. I was quite young at the time and had asked my parents for a hooded sweatshirt from that website. They said they tried to order it, but when they checked out they got no confirmation email, never got a delivery, and the credit card was never charged. It was like a ghost site for a while.

  3. I wonder where the paw prints start? The old paw prints started at the Eiffel Tower right?
  4. I would love if the parade has its own unique soundtrack, but the fact that he specifically said Kings Island makes me think it might be for a new fireworks/fountain show, since Kings Island is the only park to do nightly fireworks.
  5. This is so cool! Love to see that this kind of festival is coming to Kings Island, especially after all the effort put into International Street. It seems like perfect timing. I know this is very doubtful, but I wonder if the "electrifying musical score" is original, or if it'll just be some bollywood hits and top 10 charts like some of the previous years' fireworks shows have been. I think an original score would be cool, and worth the investment for Cedar Fair if they're putting this parade at multiple parks. Regardless, I'm especially excited to see how they use the new lighting package on International Street for this show! I'll echo the others and say I'm also curious about parade routes. Anyone remember what path the Nickelodeon parade took?
  6. Dang. This seems really soon to be taking this out. When working at the park, I can’t tell you how many people asked for that buffet place, only for me to tell them it’s been replaced with Reds. Guests are still getting use to it being RHoFG and now they’re changing it again. Correct me if I’m wrong, wasn’t this opened in 2014 to replace Rivertown Junction? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Got some tickets with 3 others to the 11:00 tour! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. How will both train engines be running this year? There’s not a second station in operation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'm wondering if the cars will be electric since they said they're going to be new cars. That would negate any need for oil lubricants or gas, making operation cleaner and safer. But it would also get rid of the churning of the engine noise we always hear with CP's and Holiday World's antiques.
  10. Is The Beast still open? I heard it was shut down for a while.
  11. ^^ It’s honestly sad a lot of times because people only “hear” ride ops when they’re finally yelling or being stern with guests. But most don’t notice that this is not them being rude, it’s just them not being heard by the dis-obeying guests the first 3 times so they have to raise their voice. I wish they didn’t, but like you’ve observed, guests really can be completely oblivious sometimes. The ride ops do a lot to keep people safe and sometimes that means being stern with the guests.

  12. Did guest services at least know that the show was not happening or did they too think the fireworks were still on for the night?
  13. Facebook reviews are disabled. They're reacting fast it seems.
  14. Oh, 100% agree with the "disappointment" feeling. Especially since graphics have gotten so good. Was especially turned off by this Mystic Timbers advert: Especially since I had already ridden the ride before I saw it. But then I saw it, and was like "sooo it actually doesn't have working headlights, fog, OR working shed doors, all of which would make the ride 10x more immersive."
  15. Does anyone else miss "Seeing Stars" by Peter Tong? I forgot I had it on my iPhone still from the first time I Shazamed it at Cirque Imagine in 2014. It was a great curtain call song in my opinion.
  16. I liked the music in Imagine far better, but I definitely enjoyed the sets and scenery better in Origins Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. At the park today. VERY crowded. About to wait in probably a 40 min. Panda line. I'll update y'all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I'm confused on how a broken wheel causes a ride sensor to "trigger a stop" in a location that doesn't have any breaks. It's almost like six flags was suggesting that a stall is a normal ride stop in a block. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Outside of Planet Snoopy, ride operators really seem confused about what the Snoopy licenses even are. If the issue persists, I encourage people to politely inform guests Services about the uniformed operators. But the purpose of the license is definitely to confirm height for the season.

  20. Reds or IS Skyline are not open today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I am continually impressed by the re-ridability of Mystic Timbers. It's not like Banshee where I get a bit dizzy after every ride. I could sit on Mystic Timbers for hours and not stop giggling at all the airtime. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. I missed the lunch yesterday! Were any specific rides mentioned? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I saw a guest yelling at a Mystic Timbers associate because he didn't want to put his family's bags in a locker He walked away in anger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I ate at Hank's today as well. I was originally worried when I walked in (around 2:40pm) because only one side was open with only one register open. But the register associate as well as the food assembly associates were extremely fast. Got through a line of ~ 10 people in 15 minutes. The associate at the register was very very quick and knowledgeable, as he was able to sell me the season pass drink plan on the spot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Minus the FUNTV music in the queue, the ride doesn't really have any "music", per se. Just one ambience audio track that loops. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
