  1. Gillette Mach 3 Hopes you enjoyed your ride on Top Gun
  2. Great wolf Lodge is right next door. That would be the closest. https://www.greatwolf.com/mason Not sure any hotels run shuttles anymore.
  3. They were WEBISODES! Stan the man said so.
  4. That's because its 2 Canadians for every 1 American. Its just the exchange rate.
  5. With as many people who come and go in and out of the park I doubt the park has checks on everyone. Not like you even have to give a real name on a pass. Unless you been trespassed from the park I doubt security will do anything.
  6. Its been so long since they had this many concerts and good names.
  7. You know what's sad when you go to a city with a really well run Metro System like Chicago or London and you can get completely around sans car. Cincinnati could of been that but in Ohio we are afraid of trains for passengers for some reason? Would be really nice to come into town, Take a day at KI, Then ride a line down to a Reds game or the zoo.
  8. The folks who own it are selling their FEC up In Columbus to Carvana. Doesn't look like its reopening.
  9. https://KICentral.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1586-should-i-go-back/&tab=comments#comment-16103 very long ago.
  10. Smoking isn't a right. Get over yourself.
  11. Its Firehawk. I road it once as X-flight once as Firehawk I had no desire to ride it again
  12. If anyone is interested. The Comfort Inn down on Fields Ertle Rd is about 70 a night on the weekend. I've been there 3 times in the past month and its pretty nice for the price.
  13. Thanks for the kind words. Sadly my aunt passed on today.
  14. So its been close to 7 years since I have been in the park. Due to some family issues I was back in town and today I decided that maybe I would make my return and try and clear my head. I arrived at around 5PM and got my season pass and got it processed. I figured for the price I could make a few trips. Once I got in I took in all the changes. I decided to make a clockwise circle. I started in Action Zone and took in the sounds and sites of the hotness that is Banshee. I just sat and watched it cycle for a while. The line didn't look long but I decided not to ride. I then walked over to The Bat. My home my old ride. I walked down the exit not intending to ride it but just to watch and try and clear my head. However.. the line was non existent and the cut though was open. I figured what the hell. Grabbed a no wait front seat ride on it. Brought back a lot of memories for me. After that I took a walk back though Coney and sat for a moment and took in the familiar sounds. I walked all the way back took in the massiveness that is Wind Seeker. Then I figured what the hey I have never seen the dinosaur thing and I have a pass. May as well use it. I have to say even though its a few years old and you can see the wear it was pretty neat and a long walk. Sadly during my trip reality set back and I was told my attendance was required back at the hospice my family member was in. This however was not a quick trip as it does take some time even using the quickest route to get from Coney Mall to The front gate and out. With that I left the park and went back to the depressing reality of watching someone you love deteriorate before your eyes. I had been at this persons bedside for a while on Friday and I needed to clear my head and try not to cry more than I already had. I may have only road 1 ride. However the trip did bring back a flood of memories of the summers of my earlier years. The friends I met as a teenager when I worked at the park. The fun times I had during college coming during the summer. Hopefully my next trip down is happier and see all the rest of the changes.
