  1. Doug apple was one of the kindest, and most respected people I have ever met. He was my supervisor for many years at KI and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. I am so happy to have been able to call Doug a friend. I will greatly miss seeing Doug on Thursday nights and at the park. Rest in peace my friend!
  2. JD as you know this stuff really fascinates me and I thank you much for your hard work and dedication to this project! Unfortunately with work being very busy and KIC taking a large backseat in my life for the past 2 years I do not check in here very often at all except to catch up with some friends thoughts. Still I will check in when I can and see all these photos so please consider me good for a comment a day towards your goal even if I say nothing!
  3. ^maybe you'll get 12" this time instead.... I really cannot wait to ride this new ride. I've had a dollywood season pass now for I think four years and I love going down for mainly the shows and the area but the park really was needing another special ride. They really have a great collection of rides now and the shows are top notch! And the food!!!! I'll also be going down first weekend of December and can't wait for christmas in the smokies!
  4. Approximately 48 exotic animals believed to be roaming free in Zanesville. Crews from The Wilds and The Columbus Zoo have been dispatched to help contain the wild animals. This makes my stomach turn. From the Associated Press: http://www.google.co...0c570aeec22b691
  5. Well....he is leaving real soon! Perhaps there is something to it? lol
  6. I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures, they truly are great and capture the spirit of the era! Thanks again!
  7. This gentleman speaks the absolute truth! I love The Wilds, and hope to get back this summer!
  8. I agree with Ross, Terpie, Jzarley and many others who have posted here. This to me is absolutely great news. Really there are no better words to describe what this could do for the company. This is a life-breathing move in my opinion, and I think the market will soon react positively to the upside of Ouimet's impending tenure.
  9. Just remember Leland, Q did not propose answers to those questions that you just asked. So be careful how much blame you place to Cedar Fair in not immediately laying out these procedures. Q gave NO direction either, you need to remember that! And as for your first question, I personally feel that the insiders of the company have more information on the internal and external environment than us other stakeholders in the company. For that reason I think that roughly three years can be an appropriate amount of time to create a "new direction". In some cases management/BOD does have better answers than the stakeholders, and I think unit holders should be careful to undermine that or you may see the board of directors and upper management become a carousel with lots of inefficient turnover!
  10. Days of Thunder is my favorite movie to ever grace the Action Theater Screen! I loved that ride, it was my favorite ride at Kings Island for a very long time!
  11. I often forget about the Viking Ship, I always try to ride it when at the park, but I forget it's there!
  12. I would raise gate admission to match that of Dollywood, Cedar Point or SFGA. I would bring more shows to the park, utilizing the talent of local performing arts groups. And there IS talent out there. There are singers and dancers and groups in my area specifically who never know anything about Kings Island auditions (That's a major problem). Additionally, the higher gate price could bring in some professional groups on the fringe. I would bring back a more robust summer concert lineup. (Something that could have really helped Hard Rock Park, and one of the ONLY things that kept Cypress Gardens afloat as long as it was) I would bring in a sit down restaurant similar to Gameday Grill, with an entrance to the exterior of the park open during offseason hours as well as in-season hours. This would be an experience on par with Bdubs, or Frickers etc. with gameday parties during March Madness, and football season. Also, I would add some teacups, and some landscaping to the area next to IS theater behind the lighted stars and characters. Finally, that pavement in Action Zone would come up, and the landscaping there would be reworked with emphasis on photo spots, and strategic shade opportunities. Last but not least I would like to add some more family rides, not rides for a kid and his/her parent(s), but a ride that grandma and grandpa can ride together, something thematic, original, and adventurous.
  13. Blue Icecream.... ? I about died laughing at this Paul! I was thinking Dippin' Dots though? If only PizzaBaby027 knew as much about grammar and sentence structure as he/she claims to know about park rules.
