  1. I renewed my passes for KI for the 2020 season. This season's FLP for renewing is showing up on my app, but not the Bring a friend on Sundays tickets. Anyone know where I might find these?
  2. I am still debating whether or not to make the trip over from Indy this evening. Would love to be a part of the crowd and the excitement, but I've got an early day tomorrow. I know KIBlog is Livestreaming this. Does anyone know if anybody else has confirmed if they are streaming it as well?
  3. I thought Slingshot was the fastest?
  4. The gentleman that said that was thinking that since he had an odd number of people they were going to be let through in front of the current group of 3 in front of him, even though the Line separator was just asking for 1 in order to fill the train. I do not think after reading my post again, I had made it very clear that the man saying it, was thinking that having 3 was going to help him and his group get whatever the separator was giving, and was not, in fact, simply answering to let the separator know that they should be disincluded for being a group of 3.
  5. As I'm in line for MT, myself and my 2 kids were going to be the first group seated for the next train: Line Separator - " How many in your party" Me: - "there are 3 of us" LS (To everyone behind me yelling) - Ok everyone, I need 1 more. Any single riders?!? Anyone riding alone today, I need 1 single rider please to the front of the line!?!? Guy behind me: We've got 3 in my group! Me: (Loses the little bit of faith I had left in humanity)- ………...
  6. Do you have to have Platinum pass for your KI FunPix to work at Cedar Point? I am only going for a day so I did not purchase the platinum pass. Will my FunPix that is on my KI goldpass work at CP or would i need to purchase a FunPix for that park separately?
  7. I am not sure that it was ever called Momma Rosa's. The founder of the chain's name is "Buddy" LaRosa. From my understanding, it was a much smaller operation in the 70's. Kings Island brought them in to have a unique food item (parks did not really have pizza at the time), and it took off from there after people at the park enjoyed it so much.
  8. Clermont Steel Fabricators. It is the company located in Batavia that fabricates the B&M coasters
  9. At Coasterstock, the young man driving The Racer Friday night, was operating Scrambler for ERT Saturday morning.
  10. Do you happen to know How deep is the fountain?
  11. Is PassPerks just for Platinum passholders?
  12. Enjoyed the video glimpse of the ride in operation during the presentation and viewing of the teaser trailer for Kings Island: 50 Years of Memories Friday evening!
  13. Had 2 meals on Sunday, which was a very busy day at the park with all of the after prom kids. Went to Coney BBQ at around 12:30 which I had not tried yet since it has been in the park. There was no wait at all, we walked right in and were served immediately. Service was good. I had the pulled pork and corn on the cob. My brother got the ribs and the Fried potato things. They weren't quite fries but not really tots either and I don't remember what they are called on the menu. Temperature-wise my pork was somewhere between cold and lukewarm. Didn't mind eating it with the mustard based bbq which i thought was pretty good. All around decent flavor. The corn was charred, cold and flavorless. Pretty much like an ear of corn was shucked, put on the grill a bit too long and then taken off and set aside for a while. No work put into it at all. I sampled a bite of my brother's ribs. Good flavor. But also barely above room temp. His Fries, whatever they are called there, were a bit warmer. Not hot by any stretch of the imagination, but still not too bad and I thought was a unique menu item, and if they were served hot I think would be a great side. I'd give Coney BBQ maybe 3 Stars out of 5 for good potential and a bump for the quick and friendly service. Had the Potato Works chicken tender basket later on. Not much of a line, and the food came out quickly. Interaction with the staff was not pleasant, but was not bad either. Chicken Tenders were warm. It was nice to have a hot sauce option as well as the bbq. Tenders were just ok. Almost seems like a Banquet Meal brand tender just fried up, not really impressive at all. Fries were nice and hot. No seasoning on them at all though. Not sure if that is normal or not. You'd think nice big hot fries like that would have sea salt put on them, maybe a bit of pepper or something. But completely flavorless. And the iodized salt packets are almost undeserving of being put on these fries that could be otherwise glorious. Needs sea salt put on right after being pulled from fryer. I'd Give Potato Works a 2 out of 5 stars for the idea that Chicken Tenders so generic makes a $14 meal and the Fries were bland and disappointing without smathering them in Ketchup which i would generally prefer to avoid doing. So yeah, that was my dining experience Sunday.
  14. I think the problem with the price of the chain food such as LaRosa's or Chic-fil-a is that not only does KI have to make money off of it, so does Chic-fil-a. Which is why prices for these are basically double what it is on the outside. Whereas Reds, and now Brewhouse are run strictly by KI. The food cost would be the same, but there are not as many pocketbooks to fill with the profit as with the chains. So Brewhouse can offer quality choices for prices competitive with the rest of the quick service options, because KI is the only brand that has to make a profit and they aren't having to pay royalties or a percentage or whatever it is that they pay to Chic-Fil-A or LaRosa's.
  15. Amazon falls was definitely my first disappointment at the park. As the OP mentioned, the TV commercials made it look so intriguing. And then you get to the park and its just up, around and down and splash. And the line was so long. It filled the entire que. PLUS they got rid of my beloved Screamin' Demon for it.
  16. I have wondered that too. I always liked sitting in the front of each car as there was so much room.
  17. $73M Flume Madhouse?
  18. I think a dark purple would be cool. Especially if they are looking to keep the X-base theme and have it look more futuristic.
  19. I remember calling them sippers also. Was always a big deal when my parents would buy me one of these. I liked the grape and then the Scooby ones the best.
  20. Part of Family Lore for 2 Score
  21. Nor would I. I enjoy being able to sit in the biergarden or festhaus to have a beverage every now and again. It is nice to sit and chill and have a drink and do some people watching sometimes. Even at haunt. Not to mention how much revenue the park would miss out on. I mean a keg of miller lite would cost them around $85 (alcohol laws and costs are different depending what state you are in, but I ran a restaurant in Indiana and that is about what it was) And KI charges what $8 for a domestic draft? I am not convinced you are getting a whole pint from those cups either. But even so, a keg holds 124 pints. The craft beer costs more of course from the supplier, and I am not sure what the park charges for those off hand. I just mean the margins are large and they probably go through more kegs than you'd think.
  22. Haha No reason to be sorry. It just as easily could have gone the other way. Not everything I think I remember, do I always remember correctly
