    EDIT: What Sam is trying to say is that despite me saying last year that 2018 would be my last year working Haunt for a while, I will be back on Saturdays and some Fridays.  This will be GatorGirl's first year in marching band so I plan on going to most/all of the home games and maybe some away ones too.  They don't bring the full band to all of the away games, and I'm still waiting to see which weeks those are to determine what Fridays I can work.  But yes, Sam the Butcher is back in Slaughterhouse!

    If he were to as much as sneeze in the park today he would be committing a crime and kicked out.  Considering it is closed and all.

    In that case, next should be a resurfaced parking lot followed by the return of the backwards Racer.
    I do also feel that since Mike Koontz became general manager, the park has been paying a lot more attention to guest feedback, though. Especially on the little things that make a big difference.

    BeeastFarmer got a reaction from arrold in Bathroom Doors?   
    Funny that you mention that. I put a suggestion in at GS to forward to that department, to please leave the doors open. The stench is terrible, I hate to touch the door when I leave, it felt like 115 degrees in there. I hope not to spend extended amounts of time in the bathroom (lol) but I feel so bad for the attendant that has to.
    I also wish that they would use a splatter guard in the urinals. I often stop at Pilot truck stops for gas on the way up, and they have a deodorizing splash guard that keeps urine IN the urinals which is sanitary and prevents odor.

    I like that they are trying to preserve as many trees as possible with this layout compared to Diamondback where they seemingly just took out everything in a half mile radius.
    Obviously a lot trees were still taken out but it doesn't appear that they are taking anything out that is not necessary.

    When I was riding The Beast yesterday (8-12), there were more trees down at the end of the clearing by the brake shed.  It didn't look like major land clearing, but you could definitely see that more trees were down, at the end of the clearing.

    Also, I've suggested before that I think it would be great to start a thread of shame on here, where we post pictures of smokers that are outside the smoking areas... So maybe we should do that in this thread?

    What would be the point of a thread of shame on KIC? We know the rules, I'm assuming most KICers follow the rules. If it frustrates us seeing it live at the park, why repeat the image online?

    I too am a big fan of the tri-tip at Coney BBQ.  It is my go to meal when I want something quick. 
    I feel like pound for pound, Coney BBQ is the most efficient dining location in the park.  I wish they would have more dining locations 0with that efficient of a set up.  I would love to see Festhaus get the Harmony Hall treatment in the next couple years.

    Restore, don't replace! Put new shingles on the building, add the flags back, remove the ads, and highlight the year's new addition in the landscaping on the right side. Redesign the ticketing area. Maybe....maybe....add signage like CP and CWinds in the circle where the Christmas tree goes. Some rocking chairs like CWinds has would be cool. But don't ruin the sight lines of walking through turnstiles and seeing IS in all the glory.

    I noticed them out during Carnivale. Maybe for a speaker system or something for Haunt. Maybe they are gone so that projection mapping equipment can be installed for Haunt! They would project across the fountain to the other sides buildings.... one can dream right?

    That sounds wonderous.   Despite living in Omaha for 10 years I never made it to the Iowa State Fair to try deep fried butter on a stick.  One of my major regrets in life.

    I had the tri-tip at Coney BBQ yesterday.  I'm pretty choosy about meat and had avoided it because, well, I didn't trust that I would like it.  If I could redo this and last season, I would have had it more often.  It was that good.  Can't wait to have it on Labor Day, my next visit.
     
    I also had the KI salad for my second meal.  I decided to try the pullapart bread.  The salad was excellent as usual.  The pullapart bread was just OK.  It's like they took 4 Kings Hawaiian rolls, put them in a bowl of butter, added cheese and chives and top, baked and served.  The bottom was not edible, it was saturated with butter.

    BeeastFarmer reacted to Magenta Lizard in Orion Announcement Day Updates 8/15/19   
    I was too wiped out emotionally by the time I got home I couldn’t even get through reading the threads much less writing anything. 
    It really was a rollercoaster of emotion starting at 10. The announcement itself was nearly exactly as expected, awesome, with the mild surprise they actually did use Orion, and the stronger surprise about Area 72, but the stats most of us already were counting on.
    Then the wild ride truly began. I waited for a bit as the crowd, which I had been avoiding by standing on one of the curbs under Racer rather than in the plaza, now flowed out past me into Coney Mall. Once I could, I headed into the plaza myself. Just as I was noticing the banners on the fence, I ran into a friend who told me to put my hands over my ears so I couldn’t hear what people were saying, and approach the fence closer to see something I was really going to like. When I saw sdrawkcaB recaR there was much squealing and dancing and I was on a complete high. I wasn’t fully willing to believe it though, so I asked Don Helbig and he very directly and definitively (it was clear he wasn’t playing) said “that isn’t happening!” I was crushed but I’m glad I found out before I had much time to believe it. 
    So I went back over to the fence, a little down at this point, and started discussing things with the others still hanging around. Someone walked towards us, as I turned to see, first I noticed the video camera held by one of the men, then the microphone in the other man’s hand, and finally, who was holding it. I was excited to meet THE John Matarese after all his coverage of this so far, but less excited by that camera. I tried to step out of the way and let him interview the person I had been talking to (ok... I may have barked “they aren’t my kids!” in an attempt to move his attention off of me and onto the father of the cute kids), but he said “no, no, it’s fine” and started asking questions.  I managed to convey my excitement about the ride and not curse, so I at least felt good about that, and he went on to interview someone else and I crossed my fingers mine wouldn’t be used. 
    After a little longer, I headed out of the park in a daze from all that had happened, and drove home. Before I left in the morning, I had set my TiVo to record the WCPO 11:00 news because I figured John Matarese would have a segment about the announcement, so I did watch that, was relieved not to see myself in it, set up to record the morning news just in case, then fell asleep really quickly. 
    So this morning... well out of however many interviews Matarese did last night, he chose two for the morning segment, and there I am, shining like an oil slick after being in the park and sweating since 9:30 AM, looking like a goober... I’ll spare you the whole thing and the horrors of my double chin (I’m sure those of you who have met me are well acquainted with it anyway) but here’s a “great” still from it:

    I guess it’s good to get the kind of recognition I deserve *sigh*
    Now I just need to deal with it being the last weekend of Gravity, and no more weekday ops. At least I have excitement about Orion to help get me through it
