  1. My initial concerns: - Dorney may be a Geauga Lake part 2 - Six Flags Kings Island / Six Flags Ohio / Six Flags Cedar Point… (don’t think they’d do this) - CF now will own another CGA… - Drop in quality across chain (already seeing this at Knotts to be honest) Some good things though: - Better FastLane system (FlashPass is pretty cool imo) - CF cleaning standards and maintenance upkeep across more parks There’s more but I’m not gonna write a block of text. Cheerio.
  2. I feel like parks are going to be more stagnant in changes. Who knows though? I just want KI to keep on chugging, that’s why I love it so much. Wild to wake up to this.
  3. Thanks for clearing it up! Wish you all the best in migrating everything.
  4. Photos in parts of the photo gallery on the main KICentral site have recently gone missing. Don't see any mention of this currently so going to make a post here so at least one other person can confirm it's not showing for them either. Attempting to view the individual files results in a 404. Just as a precaution I have attempted to access these through other devices, different networks, and different browsers. Steps to reproduce: Visit https://KICentral.com/photos/ Search for "Maps" or "Haunt 2018" or any of the other categories listed below (some more are impacted too) Open the photo gallery Try to see if the photos within them load properly Some categories have some photos, but most are inaccessible/missing. I do not know when this started occurring or if it is the result of some backend work, but better safe than sorry. Please correct me if this is just some temporary work! Nonetheless hope this can be fixed, don't want to lose some of this history.
  5. don't mean to fart on your pizza or anything but the park is only open evenings on Fridays going forward til end of Haunt. I don't recall them doing ERT for passholders on evening opens before?
  6. This looks so cute! Hopefully they can operate it fully jokes aside I love this coaster, kids are gonna love it! Glad to see CF working with Vekoma!!!
  7. Coming back from my grave to post this, so here's some fun stories of mine I've dealt with over the past couple of years. Sorry for the wordbomb, it's a lot. Incident #1: Middleman (representing a park official, don't know who specifically) reached out to me regarding a project of mine I had made public. No shade to the middleman if you know who you are, you're a cool person. Incident #2: Guess this one is more oriented towards the forum but it has relevance to the park too. When Coasterstock 2023 details were posted on the website, it was past knowledge to me that since it's on the website it's an "official source", so I thought posting it would've been fine. Nope! Alright, guess not then. Please update the KIC ToS as it's a little confusing. maybe it falls under the "Posting information that is not public record" rule? Define public record please. Got striked, won't elaborate on that, but very shortly after I was blocked on KI socials. I was unblocked a few days later, but that still stuck with me. I know I can be handful sometimes when I get excited over things but I only want to help and have a good time. It pains me, but that's that. I would love to interact with their socials and this site more but I'd rather watch from a distance. Shoutout to the two girls who took Kyles position after he moved to KD, they're doing a great job Haven't seen much mention of them here yet. Make sure to follow zpop7 (Elizabeth) on twitter, she's been doing a lot with the parks socials lately. I regretfully don't know the name of the other girl, sorry if you see this but you're doing great! Elizabeth was doing interviews with news stations over Grand Carnival if you didn't know. I have a lot of respect for Don, without him I don't know where the park would be. Sorry if this post comes across wrong, not my intention to spread hate or anything. Thanks for coming to my TED talk I guess. :wave:
  8. What if Tom & Chee moves to the now empty Chick-Fil-A building... that'd be neat.
  9. Glad you got a ticket this year, Indy! I will be attending Coasterstock for my second year, really excited!
  10. Tickets acquired, looking forward to it!
  11. Really hoping they paint it :fingers_crossed: Excited to ride it! Curious if they'll do the north side next off-season?
  12. Was gonna start a new thread but noticed this one, so I'll post here. Recent news from Daddy Don, (via the Coasterstock Facebook group), Tickets for 2022 Coasterstock went on-sale around the end of this week last year. We may see something similar for 2023, but Don/KI usually give at least a days heads up by the looks of it! I am going to try to attend the event again this year, anyone else going to try attending? I advise checking the Coasterstock page for any updates should they appear...
  13. @Hawaiian Coasters 325 Here is that same area about a week ago: and that same area about a month ago: Def interesting!
  14. I would say weather, but it's certainly been warm enough to paint recently. Maybe it's something they got planned for later in the off-season. Seems very odd for sure though.
  15. let's hope they don't remove/reduce those perks in the middle of the season then!
  16. I think you're looking for Rick Purdy
  17. Haven't gotten that perk for my gold pass. Looks like you're really getting your moneys worth...
  18. They could very easily have also used the fact Adventure Port was announced late (along with the notice) as a way to hide a later, major, addition. Of course we won't know until later if anything does happen. It's fun to speculate.
  19. Knowing they can disable the magnet… all the more reason for such possibilities at CoasterStock…
  20. Really being specific about the height. That 0.67 feet will make all the difference.
  21. This is interesting. Hoping to see less capacity in FL overall with this merge.
  22. KI uploaded a video to TikTok with an update on construction https://www.tiktok.com/@officialkingsisland?lang=en
  23. Thanks for clearing that up! I would’ve had no issue seeing the FF&F again this year, but something different will be awesome too!
  24. Great episode as always! It was very interesting to hear a bunch of the technical details and behind the scenes regarding what Rozzi's company does! I only had a minor tidbit I wanted to point out, nothing bad or anything (it's really minor)! Just when asking the audience questions you mixed up my user with someone elses, for the exact/hybrid movement question (55:20 ish), other than that another awesome episode! I always look forward to these every week, also helps pass the time too before opening day comes around.
