  1. I just accidentally clicked on a video of someone reacting to the POV. I do not want to watch the POV! I watched the render, but I want to be surprised by the experience of Orion the first time I get to ride
  2. Oh crap. I really didn’t know about the Marge situation. I just remembered photo with those dogs always being in the paper. I should have taken a temperature before I started posting. So sorry.
  3. F1, IndyCar, the Civic, or that new Acura NSX... I guess what I’m saying is that it would be neat to see a Honda themed backlot. It could promote their presence in the state and maybe turn some coaster kids into car nerds lol
  4. I think some sweet red and white track would fit the park anesthetic well and a launch or multi launch could have some dumb connection to a fast pitch of home run or something. Marge Whatsherface’s giant white dogs could be cute cuddly mascots. Or even better... re-theme Backlot with HONDAS and give it a Need for Speed kind of theme. Not necessarily Cincinnati, but they’re pumping out cars and wind turbines in your state. They also have an R&D arm and I believe they do testing at Mid America.
  5. I am super okay with this. It is part of the reason I felt comfortable to make a reservation. What I would like to see would be watch apps as well so I don’t have to mess around with my phone at all.
  6. That the park is even continuing opening plans is phenomenal. The people who will be attending the park for the first two weeks are going to be theme park and coaster enthusiasts holding season passes who have been anticipating this for basically a year. Incredible planning and work by a team of creative, brilliant, and dedicated people have been investing YEARS of their life’s work to get Orion ready for its debut. The people working at and attending the park are taking a huge risk by showing up. A very calculated risk that if mitigated or judged incorrectly could result in tragic consequences. For individuals, for employees, for the park, and even the local community and economy. The ONLY way this works is if everyone trusts each other, has patience demonstrated through kindness and gratitude, and follows the guidelines set in place. That there hasn’t been much information released about how location tracing and queue lines will be organized signals to me that planning and adapting will be happening at a granular level. If a policy or guideline changes before or while you’re at the park, remember that it is to protect everyone in our community, and that if a certain strategy fails during these first two weeks that it is because we trust each other to keep our community safe. Through this great trust we are about to bestow upon one another, that could uncover flaws in the system and could potentially have caused harm down the line.
  7. I do see American hornets, wasps, and other bees kill an average of 62 people per year in USA... Only 62? With the number of people who are severely allergic to bee stings this statistic is surprising. good news!
  8. I live in Indiana an have been trying to keep my daily 2:30 “date” with Governor Holcomb and Dr. Box. What I think has been missed by many discussing on this thread is that strict new rules in regards to capacity and distancing must be in place for businesses to reopen. The governor and doctor also mention that the plans could change at any second depending on models and data of new cases, hospitalizations, vent capacity, and spread. Where I live, people haven’t been paying much attention to stay at home measures and are traveling WAY more than BEFORE some orders were put in place. I read an article in Forbes confirming my hypothesis stating a 30% increase in vehicular and pedestrian traffic over what it was 3 weeks ago. If you would like me to locate this article and link it, I would be happy to. Why not try to reopen some things if citizens are behaving like caged tigers or ignoring the orders put in place for public health and safety? These orders don’t go into effect until Monday. I went out for a taco run today around noon and noticed the volume of traffic was quite a bit less than the last time I was out before the new plan was announced by the governor. The Greenwood Park mall is going to open on Monday so that will be fun to watch.
  9. If the world is even still here in five years, I’d be surprised if Cedar Fair will have been able to repay the $1 B they borrowed with their parks put up as collateral. Who knows? anyone who reads this could be the next lucky owner of a theme park. They’re going to be going for pennies on the dollar.
  10. @King Ding Dong Could the name possibly be derived from the intention of the program’s use by creative professionals? @Rivertown Rider If you have a photograph of your drink stand, you can use Adobe Capture to convert a photograph to a line drawing. I am assuming that is how the park pictures in the coloring book were created.
  11. I’m going to check this program out. Thanks for the advice. And apple pencil is amazing.
  12. @Zexeos Fantastic! My vision started out more like this, but I had to read the manual to be reminded of how the fill function worked. Which program did you use? Did you use a computer or tablet?
  13. As the coloring book was distributed digitally, I think digital coloring or traditional coloring would both be fair game in a theoretical contest. It could even be two separate contests. One for digital coloring and the other for traditional. As for cheating, It’s not a contest yet so no rules have been established. I was just trying out some graphics programs I haven’t touched in a while, and Procreate is about the best and most complex digital art application for iOS. At least out of all the ones I have tried. Where’s your coloring page? Lol
  14. I haven’t used my iPad for graphic programs in a while, figured I’d try to get reacquainted with Procreate. Couldn’t close the gaps in Woodstock’s head well enough to get a decent fill. But I had fun.
  15. I would love to see the scare actors on the rolling slidey board things disappear from the entrance plaza. I was carrying my camera and an iPhone when one of those guys tried to frighten me. Unfortunately, I feel like I scolded them a bit. I kind of shouted “what are you doing? Do you see what I am holding? What if I had dropped this stuff?” It is way too crowded to let these rolling slidey boards be a thing. The last thing Cedar Fair needs are personal property and injury claims all over the place.
  16. Safari on iPad. I didn’t get a cookie warning, either.
  17. Safari said that the website wasn’t secure, so I didn’t spend too much time there. But I noticed heat mapping and updating infrastructure to be required for implementation. Based solely on the site being unsecured, without research holovis, I wouldn’t trust this company. Has anyone ever used a map application using only WiFi and Bluetooth? You’d be amazed at how accurate it is. Sometimes more accurate than using cell network data. Especially in more densely populated areas. I truly believe Bluetooth tracking is how the tracing issue is going to be solved. Now to look into whoever holovis is is... Okay. As an established theme park “immersive experience” designer, this company’s website should be secure. Geez.
  18. They could but they sure don't have a history of enforcing rules other than phones out on rides or sidewalk chalk. The best jobs I have ever had, and also the most successful for me and the companies as a whole, were extremely strict when making sure people followed the rules and held them accountable across the board. If you were tardy because of a car accident and it was your last chance, they let you go. Why have policies or rules at all if some can get away with breaking or bending them and others can’t. This isn’t just a problem for theme parks, but any business.
  19. I LOVED this! I had no idea it was still in the park at all. Thanks for posting. Can I put it in my album?
  20. Dammit. Proof of human error. We’re all idiots and cannot be trusted.
  21. Whole lotta science and engineering going on at Purdue. I can’t even begin to imagine how much science and medical research, research of all kinds really, that goes on up there. Im sure everyone is going to stay away from PURDUE UNIVERSITY when brilliant minds need to be working together to solve an unsolvable connundrum
  22. This is only further proving my point that the park needs to offer kennels! Especially when they need to increase revenue streams and lower overhead as much as possible. Cedar Fair already has building materials on hand and distribution sources for the specialty items required for building and operating kennels since every top preforming park operates one but KI. Splash City was an terrible location for them, though. I can see no negatives to bring this service back to the park. And I would brag to everyone who follows my dog’s Instagram about his season pass lol. And no. I’m not ashamed to admit that I pretend to be my dog while interacting with other people who also pretend to be dogs for the sole purpose of showing off our pets! Who WOULDN’t want to buy this guy a season pass?
  23. I hadn’t checked out the official Kings Island blog in a couple weeks so I thought I’d catch up. They have a downloadable coloring book. This image has me deeply confounded. I can’t tell if it is unintentional irony or a marketing department with an extremely dark and dry, but kind of brilliant sense of humor. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2020/april/download-the-kings-island-coloring-book Would the admins approve some sort of coloring contest? Would anyone else want to participate? I think the coloring book is really cool overall and appreciate the free activity from the park.
  24. 2015: Holiday World got that B&M launch and it is phenomenal. 2017: Mystic Timbers set a record for the most wooden track in a single park. Beast has held the record for longest wooden coaster since its debut. is this the longest standing coaster record? I’m assuming so, but please enlighten me
