  1. Assuming another track piece is added to attach to the support today
  2. I just got the same thing, I actually almost bought one last visit but they didnt have my size so it's a good deal!
  3. Considering we are likely adding the queue from Firehawk to FoF, I wonder if the old pilot entrance for Firehawk will stay and be updated with signage for FoF
  4. My girlfriend and I have stayed at a few places on our trips up this year. With budget in mind here is our current rundown in order of our favorite to least: Motel 6 In Milan: This one was our favorite, the price is good and the rooms seemed to be more recently renovated. They also have a working Fridge and Microwave in the rooms. (The rooms also have an interesting 60s aesthetic and hardwood floors) Super 8 Motel in Milan: This is across the street from the Motel 6. The rooms here were nice as well. bottom floor has a back door to the rooms too which is nice for quick loading and unloading the car. This one is about as high on the list as the Motel 6, we just like the renovations at the Motel 6 a little more. (The only downside is you will be about 20 minutes from the park in either of these first two} Magnuson East Sandusky: This was our first hotel we tried this year, the location is just a couple minutes from the park and the price is fair, so if distance is important this one if a little better than the first two. I think the only real issues here is that there is a bit of a strange smell you have to get used to (But hey its a hotel and thats usually normal) and the walls seemed a bit thin as we could hear our neighbors all night (But that could just be noisy neighbors) There are mixed reviews online, some mentioned bedbugs, but i inspected our rooms each time and never found any issues personally. Norwalk Inn: (Farthest from the park) This was the cheapest by far, however we did not stay. Management seemed nice enough and it lookes nice on the outside, however the room we got was in pretty bad condition, dirty and pretty beat up with a non working microwave and fridge. Both my girlfriend and I didn't feel comfortable after getting there and opted for the Super 8 instead. This one was the only one under 100 a night (We were looking to save some money) but like Ding Dong said, it gets pretty dicey when you dip that low. ( we looked at a few other cheap places but also opted out) Hope this helps, as you can see we had to do some experimenting to find a place and will likely go for the top 2 any time a trip comes up again unless we can find any better recommendations that are closer.
  5. Hey guys, curious is anyone knows if Carowinds sells embroidered ride patches in their gift shops like Kings Island and Cedar Point have. My Girlfriend and i might be making a trip down during october and iv'e been collecting ride patches for a coaster jacket and cant find evidence of them online anywhere.
  6. I'm also curious if anyone has photos of old fearfest events. Theres a great "History of the Haunt" thread on here, but a lot of picture links are broken, i cant find any pictures from 2003. I believe that was the first year i went to haunt as a kid and it would be cool to see some pictures from then!
  7. I feel like it may be a result of the new antiques layout being smaller making it more difficult to safely have actors around and about. I could see some decorations and pumpkins being added though
  8. It was still in the front parking lot when I left today. Edit: I did not see any other trailer from WindSeeker, but the big lift hill base footer is done as well as the large triangular one. Lot of other big holes dug but they looked like they were full of rain water.
  9. Nothing new back in Xbase today, but there's a lot of people out working on the construction site today.
  10. I would also like to throw out some speculation on my end, I believe that the acronym TEOTWAWKI will be revealed to be different than "The end of the world as we know it" and be along the lines of "_ _ _ _ _ At Kings Island" Promoting the ride itself as part of teasing campaign, maybe through a themed "press release" from the park or Hanger 18 officials. (Maybe the ride theme keeps on with a conspiracy/cover up motif like Flight of Fear does with inviting the public to see the UFO) I'm also interested to see if we have any themeing updates to X-base, like the older lights or adding the runway paint back in. (Mostly a cosmetic overhaul since the Blueprints don't show much along the lines of construction)
  11. Hey all, I did a quick perspective match on the picture from the WildGravity Twitter page (Available Here) All current posters line up properly with each other (FOFs poster was off by like an inch or so), and this shows the available space left.
  12. Jeni's Supermoon Ice cream is really similar (I think its mostly Columbus based but ive seen it down in Cinci). Its a Blueberry Marshmallow blend. Its a little hard to find from store to store and its also more pricey than most ice cream, but it's really good! If you are in Yellow Springs, theres a small Ice cream place that has Blueberry Ice Cream, It tastes pretty much the same (as far as i remember) Just doesn't have as much blue coloring. And as stated above, theres a local Ice cream place called Whipty-Do! That has the exact Blue Ice cream the park sells.
  13. I was riding Banshee today with 2 friends and had an unexpected experience. When the employees came to check our restraints, the guy on the right side checking my friends decided it be best to start giving "Fun facts" about the holocaust to them. The girl checking my restraint on my side looked kinda horrified/angry that he did it, and as she walked back to her post i could hear her telling another employee he was doing it frequently. Once the train got back to the station he was gone, and a large group of employees had gathered around the ride exit. Didn't catch a name since he was on the other side of the train, but i'm a bit shocked either way.
  14. If that was the show, it seems so! But again, its hard to really remember if it was something that happened. I remember asking how he got in the chair during the show without anyone seeing but he said it was a secret. (I think there was a part in the show where some props moved around as a distraction and he was slipped in from the back) I feel like i remember a lot about the show even though i cant confirm it true or not.
