  1. Cool! Kings Island Unlimited is coming back! We did it guys!!!!
  2. I don’t really have any issue with this choice. I just came from BGT 2 days ago (Had a great time). The park is enormous and thankfully has now 2 modes of transportation with the train and now the sky ride. I got the sky ride credit a long long time ago, for those that never got this experience it provided unparallel views of the Serengeti area of the park and the animals. I totally see why this would become an up charge attraction. The Serengeti Safari Tour is $40. If the sky ride were free I’d just take the sky ride than pay 40 for the tour. So for me $5 is totally worth it for those views!
  3. Unforgivable! They had now TWO opportunities to call the Flyers the “Flying Beagles” as a nod to Flying Eagles.
  4. That’s a lot of work that’s been finished already since New Years. I’m sure they will try the best to have this open day 1. But 99 days to finish this is a very steep climb
  5. So my biggest question now is… Six Flags Qiddiya? Clearly it’s happening but it wasn’t featured on the released map of properties. The topic of that park creates a lot of questions.
  6. Hmm, perhaps it’s not per say a merger but more of a shuffling of parks.
  7. That was a fun night. It was completely empty that night.
  8. I remember the 4th of July blackout in 2011… yikes! The most embarrassing 4th ever.
  9. This is really exciting to see come together. Brings me back to the coaster wars era 20 years ago seeing all these massive supports being put in place. the 90s and 00s were a fun time to be a coaster enthusiast!
  10. Ever since they got rid of the KI Enthusiast guy things just haven’t been the same. [exuberant sigh]
  11. These sudden changes usually a decision was made at the top. Has any CF management personal recently been changed in charge of decisions like these?
  12. Self explanatory. What is something other parks do that Kings Island doesn’t but you think should? Free Sunscreen: Holiday world Hand mounted cameras: SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Better App: Universal Studios and Disney Free Lockers: Universal Studios
  13. In my adult years I’ve come to see how conservatively (from a corporate standpoint) the company is run.
  14. I should mention I rarely see any advertising for any of the CF parks outside local shopping grocery stores. I’d be interested to hear from Ryan (BoodaH1994) his take if he thinks some of this could be in result to poor corporate marketing. I’ve seen billboards and ads for Dollywood as far as Dayton and ads for Dollywood are littered all over my socials.
  15. Hearing the pathetic staffing issues makes me (A Nevada native) not want to visit which I think is the opposite of what Cedar Fair wants to hear. can anyone confirm if Knotts is staffing the same way? I certainly hope not because having to deal with SFMM operations and staffing is already one park too many!
  16. In an alternate reality, What would have an RMC SOB looked like?
  17. Has an official live stream been announced. Otherwise any social media outlets going to be live streaming the event?
  18. Sigh, here it comes. I'm not here to talk about Don or Chad. What I do want to discuss is the maturity of corporations on Social Media. You see, up until I would say 2016/2017 social media on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook have been straight and to the point. Update Guest about X thing happening on X day. Today when you think of good online social accounts run by theme park / manufacturing accounts I think of; https://twitter.com/HorrorNightsORL https://twitter.com/universalorl/ https://twitter.com/RockyMtnConst/ https://twitter.com/altontowers/ These are just to name a few but many others exist. On top of just the language used I really would like everyone here to also look at the REPLYs tab. This is what IMO makes a social stand out. Uni replies to an exceptional amount of tweets both good and bad. RMC plays back and forth with its fans and other parks twitter accounts. I could go on and on. Twitter for these places actually feel like were having an active conversation and that as a guest or pass member feels... well... good! Now take a look at the online presence of not just Kings Island, but Cedar Fair in general it just seems like a one sided conversation. There isn't any reply to any mentions! Not even when Kyle at KD posted the following did Kings Island like or even respond. Not that it is a big deal with that specific example but it shows a lack of using the "social" in social media. Now compared to how Universal expresses concern when a tweet with a critique is sent, This is how my tweet was responded to back in 2019. And to this day am still blocked. I don't hold a grudge, I still love this park but I wish here in a digital age there were actual communication between the parks and their guests. Nemo out
  19. Kings Island??? Sorry never heard of it
  20. I wouldn't say they are struggling after hearing their recent quarterly. CF is a fairly conservative company when it comes to their checkbook
  21. Thankfully rain is something you can prepare for.
  22. Honestly, I just wish we had more transportation rides. Does sky lift count as a duel ride because that's what I want! There just needs to be a way for families to traverse the park quickly. The best route I feel is from Area 15 to Planet Snoopy.
  23. So here is a short funny Starlight story for everyone! It was spring 2010 and my very first task of the season was to get in a boom lift and begin decorating the trees with the Christmas lights for Starlight Experience. One tree in particular in the south east corner of the tower was my tree. I wrapped that tree from trunk to branch and was so happy about it. When it came to powering up the lights my tree was substantially worse than the others. A friend there asked me what happened? I replied, "Dude I'm Jewish I've never wrapped a tree!!!"
