If there is a time lapse of the lift going up eventually then I will totally forgive KI for taking down the cams.  If there isn't then I will be sad, but it's not gonna keep me from riding this monster next year!

With all the conspiracy theorist negativity over a simple webcam its mind blowing how anybody became an enthusiast before the advent of webcams.

Age. Times have definitely changed. If we didn’t see it on our local news or commercials we didn’t see it. 

It’s amazing how people have changed with technology. No one has any trust of another’s word anymore. It’s both understandable and sad all at the same time.

That's just how people are sometimes. I would choose to not even give people your time and effort by explaining how ridiculous the theories are. It will prevent a lot of useless content.

Tbh, I don't try to get involved in these arguments......but I have to agree.

(In an old man’s voice) Well I remember showing up at the park for my first visit of the year Back in the day only to find that Kenton’s Cove Keelboat Canal had been removed... I had no idea it was happening. :P

I remember being irked that they replaced the original Enchanted Voyage with the Smurfs.  Seriously aggravated.  To this day, I still have a deep seated wish that they would bring it back.  I was also irked when they replaced the Phantom Theater.  I miss being asked, "What are you looking at?"  Must be something about that particular location.  If I like the ride that is there, they take it out.

While I understand why people want to see the topping off, I just can't too excited about not seeing it via webcam.  They still have a long way to go.  I'm sure that they will have several pictures on the Blog.  I still can't ride it yet but, come April or May, I'll be geared up.

Post from John Matarese Instagram:

 

So do people really think the park shut down the webcam:

  • from a liability standpoint; or
  • to give Channel 9 an exclusive with their 90's resolution quality chopper 9?; or
  • it really is a software upgrade issue with unforeseen issues.

Personally I think a helicopter flying around during the installation would be more of a liability than the webcam...

Liability theory was just me speculating, guys. Nothing more, nothing less. Calm down.

Liability theories were posted long before you mentioned it, and they will continue after...

Plus... I was there for Diamondback’s topping off. They let me take photos and film. Wasn’t an issue then and probably wouldn’t be an issue with this.

Plus...

They literally let Clink Novak in the crane bucket for the topping off of I305...

Guess the webcam mystery is solved. KI posted on Youtube a video of the topping off. Once we all go smash that subscribe button they will turn them back on. /s

Even as I get older, it still continues to blow my mind the kinds of things people get upset over (webcams, reboots, etc.) and the kinds of things they don't.

Ya cause webcams are the priority with haunt tear down into winter fest setup. Not to mention them building their biggest investment in history and also removing one of their most historic coasters, ya I'm sure the webcams are a bigger priority.

It has now been three weeks for what is apparently “software upgrades”.  The Kings Island IT staff looks incredibly inept right now.

Didn't they first say it was because of lights being installed, then IT upgrade?  What its really about is that Cedar Fair probably saw KI web site was getting more hits than CP's because of Orion construction, then decided to pull the plug. This sounds like another "Reached end of service life". excuse to me! ;):lol:

Same, but with that playplace in the mini Nickelodeon area (pre-Nick Central) that was (seemingly) suddenly removed for no reason. I do (barely) remember seeing construction walls around where KCKC was back in the day.

On the same note, whatever software runs the cameras for webcams, likely does the same for security cameras. Think about that for a second...no security cameras at all... That would cost way more than fixing or replacing the camera server.

Sounds like a park problem and not mine. I highly doubt they are without security cams.

You are almost certainly 100% wrong on this...sorry.

The webcams are most likely just fed to the Internet straight-up, more or less. The security camera system is much more involved with VLAN's and such...plus more.  It's completely possible the same switches that power the webcams power some of the security cams...and if the switches are down both COULD theoretically be down. But I can promise you they are not all a part of the same software setup. Honestly with the park closed I'd believe just about anything. Many switches might be down. Security camera's might be down, so what---the park is closed, and they still have other security measures in place. I would also believe it if you told me they upgraded their network, and just haven't gotten around to setting up the webcams yet.

I more or less know what has to be done, but I don't work there, don't know how beefy their IT staff is, and don't know where they are on their priority list. But I'm guessing the webcams are bottom-of-the-barrel as concerns day-to-day operations.
