  1. Look at that site, it's unclear also, it just says Gold and Platinum Pass holders so I assume that means all pass holders Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Currently watching it snow on the webcam [emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yes! We do Easter Breakfast at like 9am so we were going to drive up after and enjoy the day. Our families don't do much for Easter and with me working weekends, I know I'll be off that day [emoji846] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Considering going Easter Sunday (16th of April) think it will be equally as crazy crowded??? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Sharing this from @KingsIslandPR Instagram! The station looks great!!! Edit: the caption says "A look inside the station on Mystic Timbers" Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Think they would / could every put something else back that way? or even a few things? I like the walk, its a nice break while in the parks but maybe if there were other thing/s back that way it would attract more people to that area. Just a thought
  7. Unsure, If not i'm sure it'll be on your inteniery you get the day of! I've looked but can't seem to find anywhere it tell me. I picked 3pm, I know but I'm not finding a spot that tells me that. I could just be over looking it though!
  8. Good to know! I think we are planning to arriving closer to 7:30/8am to sleep in a little longer! lol
  9. Really bored this morning, and I've ended up reading tweets with the #whatsintheshed, it's really funny to read some peoples specualtions on The Shed.
  10. I love how they have been turning on the lift hill lights at night! They look so good!
  11. I love Cirque! I remember before the first show I saw I was recommended to see it here on the boards (Pretty sure it was by Ms. Magenta Lizard, herself) and they are great! I took my fiancé with me despite his usual dislike of shows and he loved it! Side Not: I'm also excited to see the Back to the 90's show too!
  12. HOUSTON WE HAVE TRAINS! From @KingsIslandPR Twitter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. New Photo from @KingsIslandPR Twitter!! Better View of Pic https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C6fvOhdXMAQhY0T.jpg:large
  14. I was think the same! Kind of hoping actually lol I've never experienced a Triotech ride before, I've heard good and bad. But sometime I hear the bad and it seems like people are being too nit picky about things. This will also be my first GCI and I'm excited to ride these trains I keep hearing so much about!

  15. Anyone want to speculate? If you could pick anyone, Who would you want to see do the inside of the shed?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Looks tight! (Probably the angle of photo) but awesome none the less!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. When you register it asks you if you'd like to check in on Friday or Saturday, as for what the time windows are I'm not entirely sure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I did! I told her I didn't care to register again if they needed me too, but I thought I had previously when I purchased my tickets. Edit: We are all set and ready now! 3pm Beast Tour! Only 73 more days! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. [emoji20] Got an email this morning telling me that I haven't registered 1 or more of my CoasterStock tickets. I register both tickets after I purchased them but I guess I messed something up Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Think they would ever flip it to something like the Plant v. Zombies they did at Carowinds?
  21. Same! I've only had it was and it was good but it's been a few years!
  22. I do hope Tom + Chee comes back [emoji846] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Hi-C Fruit Punch and Sprite or Sprite Zero is the best!!! I highly recommend it! Side-Note: Did we ever figure out what size cup are included with the paper cup drink plan?
  24. I miss it being backwards! I do wish it still was, it made it really fun and different. It was a fun twist on traditional dueling coasters.
  25. So far.... to answer my own question.... Also, not sure if this is 100% accurate but it has come from good sources and I found the same information on other sources. - The clearance envelope (the area around you that should be open/free from obstruction) is based on several factors - - The Train/Car, the appropriate size of riders, and the reach of the average rider (reach envelope, I've seen it called) - They use a scale to determine the average rider, and their reach then add 3 inches to their reach. - I don't have the full book but, I found some articles an PDF's of Standards set by ASTM International and it says " 6.6.1 Amusement rides and devices shall be designed to provide a patron clearance envelope adequate to minimize the opportunity for contact between the patron and other objects where said contact is likely to cause injury. " and then goes on to say " 6.6.3 The designer/engineer shall determine the shape and size of the required patron clearance envelope based on the appropriate patron model, the patron reach envelope, and the design of the patron containment system, if any. The minimum patron model shall be based on Dreyfuss Human Scale 4/5/6 (1), 7/8/9 (2), SAE J833, or CDC 95th percentile, with an additional (extended) arm and leg reach of 3 in..." ". These are from the 2015 standards. I couldn't find anything more current. - So, if someone is outside of the average then it would make sense if the could or couldn't touch parts of the ride they shouldn't. This may have been the case on Millenium Force like in the previouly posted picture. Now, it got me curious about The Beast conundrum I don't have an answer for that. I have found some speculation about it but not anything significant. Some say it was before the current safety standards so they did it differently, but I can't say one way or another and I'm not going to eve try lol. SO...... Basically it seems to me that they have a number for the reach of the average rider and then add 3 inches and that the clearance. Ps. Tell me if I'm wayyyy wrong lol
