  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I have done this before when my pass was lost before going to Knott's. This was a few years ago though.
  4. 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.
  5. What kind of cat are we talking about here? Not many are tall enough to ride...
  6. FYI its never been longest. Beast has it beat in both track length and duration.
  7. Maybe DeWine is upset that Orion opening means Diamondback isn't the biggest fastest tallest meanest coaster to ever strike Kings Island!!!!!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. They only run both sides when the park is busy enough. They usually run red.
  15. App puts most things around 15 - 25 and Diamondback does look around 20. Soak City did look crowded and the park feels busy overall although the lines don't look too bad atm.
  16. I'm aware that was under Paramount who proved it could work fine and was far less likely to cram in rides or have them interact with midways or other rides than Cedar Fair. If the infrastructure is there already and all they have to do is extend a lift over another coaster (probably using some steel bridging like Mystic Timbers) then I think they would be willing to take those steps. With rides like Mystic Timbers, Valravn and Yukon Striker they have proven that. And are certainly more willing than Paramount would have been in my opinion.
  17. It already was the entrance to a roller coaster right next to The Bat and through its exit. I don't think the park is very concerned about it.
  18. I think Mystic Timbers shows they will since it certainly didn't have to be crammed on top of White Water Canyon.
  19. I would have been first if I was on a pc instead of my phone.
  20. I would say Maverick has way more with the rock work, water canons and queue house.
  21. You can add FOF to that list too, their Six Flags counterparts are slightly taller so a bit different. I think these are all similar enough to call them clones.
  22. I went up yesterday after work and it wasn't bad, stormed for about an hour. They did shut down at 9 though.
  23. Yeah, did the same thing on Millennium Force. Even Maverick was walk on at times. Only bummer was how much Steel Vengeance was down.
  24. In May my family and I had a trip to Cedar Point where they called for rain every day about all day. It barely rained at all. So probably not unless you are certain it will rain enough to ruin the trip. Storms can also lead to low crowd days, the time you save with short lines can make up for time lost due to storms.
