  1. On any ride that has 3 benches per car (The Beast, The Racer, Adventure Express), I would always recommend sitting in the middle row because you get the smoothest ride. It really improves the ride experience, unless you want a rough ride, of course.
  2. To get past the splash screen, you must have location services enabled for the app. It appears that you must actually be in the park for the wait times to appear.
  3. I went tonight and decided to ride FOF as it was quite cold. The ride op was dispatching trains a lot quicker than normal. They usually seem to be waiting for something because they will sometimes announce "green cones", meaning that whatever they were waiting for is ready. Our train was dispatched very soon after the last one. As we were launching, I noticed that we were moving remarkably slower than normal. The train was moving at about 40 mph near the end of the launch when all of a sudden the brakes slammed closed. We stopped in less than 1 second. For some reason, we were not launched fast enough. Eventually, maintenance came and manually released the brakes and pushed the train all the way back to the station while everyone was still in it. A few test runs later, the ride was operating normally, except they decided to only use the front 3 cars. Made for a fun and interesting night!
  4. Okay, I was just thinking about it and thought I'd ask. Thanks for your replies.
  5. Question: What if I don't live in the US? Can I still lose my domain name under the ACPA? Answer: Indeed, you can. If the mark owner is protected by US law (uses the mark in the US) then that mark owner can bring an ACPA action in a US court regardless of the domain holder's location. If the domain holder fails to show up in court, s/he may lose by default, in which case the US court will issue an order to the domain registrar or registry to cancel or transfer the domain registration to the mark owner.

  6. According to Yelp, it is not the restaurant's website. (by the way, the restaurant is closed). Google Trends shows "kingsisland.com" being a frequent search, so I think it would be a good idea for Cedar Fair to claim/invest in the domain name.
  7. Would it be possible for Cedar Fair to use the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (15 U.S.C. ยง 1125(d)) to claim the domain name "kingsisland.com" instead of using "visitkingsisland.com"? The registrant appears to be in Canada and the domain does not appear to be in use. Or I guess they could just email the owner or give him a call...
  8. A few weeks ago, some Cat 5 was run in the station and out along the brake run. I went this evening and noticed that there are now wireless routers in the station and on some supports along the brake run. Edit: You can tell that the conduit was added because it is not painted in the station.
