  1. I used the meal plan for a cfa sandwich Saturday no problem. Seems it is still available.
  2. Wasn't it Diamondback that didn't have an increase? And I think Mystic Timbers was 2%. Also be careful when comparing percentages. Kings Island attendance is much higher than many other parks which makes for lower percentages. Additions may also be made simply to keep attendance up rather than increase it.
  3. Everyone is worth $15 per hour. While you may take a second job many will give up their second job since they won't have to work two jobs. Given employment needs I don't see a job shortage. To answer you question, no I don't see a problem here.
  4. It's not being "handed to them" if they are working for it. It's not a handout. It wouldn't be a big change if we kept minimum wage up with inflation but we haven't. Now it's a much more painful fix. There is no need to raise other workers pay that has kept up with inflation, this pay has already raised. (The rest is not pointed at any person just a statement on it's own)For decades we have lived off others suffering, be that underpaid minimum wage workers here or sweatshops abroad. It needs to change. Don't short change workers and belittle them as beggars just because they work a m
  5. That same park tore down a B&M to replace it with the exact same B&M. Must see something in them to do that.
  6. Just an FYI you have Iron Gwazi under Fiesta Texas. Nice list but I'm not sure about counting racers twice. The list seems pretty solid though. Opinions will differ of course.
  7. This blueprint doesn't have any measurements. Could we be looking at giga bench?
  8. Have to disagree on the RMC part. RMC introduced a host of new elements and continues to do so. For example only Storm Chaser and Twisted Timbers have the inverting drop, Goliath has it's great stall out of a half loop and Outlaw run has a double corkscrew that is unique to RMC. While certain elements are repeated I think they have done an excellent job of differentiating their rides.
  9. I would consider most of their parks as smaller local parks that don't need the attendance of bigger parks like Kings Island and Cedar Point. A larger population probably helps support more parks too. And while they may not be in Ohio there are a few parks within a few hours drive of Cedar Fairs Ohio parks.
  10. The biggest reason I could think of is to get a hot product. If Cedar Fair deemed the risk acceptable then I could see it happening. Especially if other installations show better reliability. I don't think this will happen but it's far from impossible. Cedar Fair has shown their relationship to be cordial in the past at least to the public.
  11. I have done this before when my pass was lost before going to Knott's. This was a few years ago though.
  12. An app can do so effectively, cheaply and is already available. Convincing people would be the hard part. Could it combat other similar diseases? Yes.
  13. What kind of cat are we talking about here? Not many are tall enough to ride...
