  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I have done this before when my pass was lost before going to Knott's. This was a few years ago though.
  5. 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.
  6. What kind of cat are we talking about here? Not many are tall enough to ride...
  7. FYI its never been longest. Beast has it beat in both track length and duration.
  8. Maybe DeWine is upset that Orion opening means Diamondback isn't the biggest fastest tallest meanest coaster to ever strike Kings Island!!!!!
  9. I got an email from Six Flags Magic Mountain saying they are adding a free day to memberships for every day they are closed plus adding free perks. Who knows what else the industry will come up with but it seems like we may still get the value of our passes etc. Hopefully Kings Island won't need to follow suit.
  10. I think there is plenty of in between there. A settlement is most likely and Cedar Fair can probably afford to pay for the overtime/lawsuit for one park.
  11. I think he means each year. Basically KI opens before the other parks that have a WindSeeker. Poor wording make this confusing as well as the question choice. Opening days change from year to year.
  12. Yeah that's what I always thought. My understanding is Arrow only developed a limited number of track pieces and simply reused them. I would guess that Viper at Magic Mountain would have the same size loops just higher up.
  13. To be clear are they essentially the same size with the second 10 ft. lower? That was always my impression. It always looked as though the track dipped a bit going into the second loop. With Arrow's cookie cutter design this would make sense.
  14. There hasn't been an announcement yet. Orion ornaments have April Edit - 11th not 20 -on them making that the likely opening day. In the past pass holder preview day has been the Friday before opening day starting at 5. I'm not sure if ert for next year has been announced or not but Orion is likely to be on it at some point.
