Not a guest but still found this funny. GMA stated Yukon Striker was the tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in the world. 

This is all over the place in regards to YS... It's because most people have no idea what a 'dive coaster' is... To us, it denotes something very specific, yet to them most coasters 'dive'...

While waiting in line for Mystic Timbers this morning, I had the most obnoxious group of guys behind me. They were loud, racist, making sexist comments about the (probably underage) girls in the line, shouting the N word, fatshaming people, talking about their "size," and one of them, the one who looked like he owns the "Free Candy" van from the other thread, was going on about how "sexy" he was.

I know we have a few both current and previous employees, would the park remove these guess if you were to report it to a ride operator? Just wondering.

I'm always  nervous on Drop Towers, and on KI's, I know its a 7 second delay from when it stops rising before it drops and try to count it out, which, I fail miserably most of the time.

Guests with regular tickets in the morning 

: “Hey why do those guys get to go in the park early?”

*Referring to Goldpass holders*

Can gold passes get in early? I have one. Sorry for a stupid question, this is my first year back to KI since 1998.

ETA: the website says we get ride certain rides 30 minutes early. Does that mean we can get into the park earlier with our gold passes? I didn't know this was a perk!

Everybody enters the gates at same time, but once inside they rope off I street, but you'll be able to go through that to the ERT rides 30 minutes early

Near the top of Drop Tower, one girl says “wow, it’s windy!”  The girl next to her says “when the wind lets up, it means it’s about to drop!”

Physics!

Wow.  This had me laughing,  people really do say the craziest things sometimes.

*On Diamondback, two girls spot Jared*

"OMG, it's Jared! Hi, Jared!"

"Jared, I love you!"

Whoever Jared is, he's a popular dude. :D

It's exactly 5 seconds from the click. I do wonder if they could program this to make it random.

I’d imagine they cannot change that as the “click” you are hearing is the mechanism starting to release.  It’s not a standard clamp like a paper clip style. It looks kind of like the rear window openers in Vans.  You can watch it engage at the bottom as it isn’t concealed.  Hydraulics push down from the catch car and appear to rotate something to engage to car.

 

I circled the mechanism that I’m talking about, it rotates before attaching and releasing.
