  1. If anyone was planning to visit the Mt. Healthy Haunted Hall the first night is Oct 1st this year not the 27th as in the pic.
  2. I was there Thursday and the crew cycled trains so everyone got off at the station as normal. They then cycled trains again to park a specific train in the station.
  3. He's much friendlier when you're getting off.
  4. My brother and I were waiting in line for it last Thursday night at the back row when it went down. Waited a few minutes when the op at the back told is it would probably be down for a while and said "our trains are a hot mess right now", take that for what you will. Seeing as fireworks weren't long away we left the line. Edit: trains were still being cycled when it closed so I would think the lifts are fine.
  5. I received one of the settlement claim forms and it states I could receive up to $60. On a side note since it always comes up when talk of frivolous lawsuits abound- the McDonald's debacle was about a malfunctioning coffee machine that made the coffee scalding hot giving the woman third degree burns, not that it was simply hot. McDonalds was considered negligent because they didn't fix the coffee maker or properly warn the customer.
  6. Makes leaving them a bit sillier but the logic of not needing a locker or worrying about losing them on a ride still remains. Getting my Dad to pay for a locker is harder than pulling a lions teeth!
  7. You do realize some people are cheap? Why not save yourself 10 bucks if you're meeting someone in the parking lot anyway? And you can't blame their logic with how rare this kind of occurance is at Kings Island. You don't need to convince me of anything as I keep my keys on me.
  8. They probably thought they were safer locked in their friends car than getting lost on a roller coaster. Can't say I haven't seen my family do it.
  9. I could be wrong but I think the last time this brood came out it so happened to sinc up with another smaller brood making it larger than normal. I certainly recall it being the biggest I've ever seen.
  10. Diamondback has one switchback full on the webcam around a 30 to 40 min wait. That's the only queue really visible from the cams though. Strange that Banshee would be so crowded but not Diamondback. Hoping next Sunday isn't too bad since I can't make today.
  11. I used the meal plan for a cfa sandwich Saturday no problem. Seems it is still available.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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 minimum wage job. This isn't a political concern but an ethical one.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. This blueprint doesn't have any measurements. Could we be looking at giga bench?
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. I have done this before when my pass was lost before going to Knott's. This was a few years ago though.
  22. 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.
  23. What kind of cat are we talking about here? Not many are tall enough to ride...
