  1. Former supervisor for Dinosaurs Alive! Here. You are correct. All the Dinosaurs Alive! Animatronics were leased from a company that was based in Canada. The dinos themselves were very hard to maintain. The park would have to call the company and have someone from the parent company come out for repairs which didn't happen often due to price if I remember correctly (at least from what I was told so take that with a grain of salt because how much of that would be true and told to a seasonal associate). Squirrels loved to make nests inside of the dinos and would wreak havoc on the internal wiring. Honestly working the attraction was my absolute favorite time while working at the park.

  3. The seats for me poked me in the legs as I sat there. Just sitting there it was painful but as the ride was going (for me at least) it felt like the pain subsided for me. I'm not sure if I just got used to it or if while riding, the forces resituated me better into the seat. I actually got off the ride feeling like it was lackluster. I had it to be more intense on the g-forces in my head than what it really was. I'm glad I rode it but for me it's probably not something I will ride all that frequently. Definitely not in the summer with the long lines. I had only a one cycle wait during winterfest (only cause they closed the gate just before I got up to it while they were loading). I could see myself getting on it if thr wait is very minimal but I don't really see that happening often wjth the low capacity. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. Sadly I would agree with you. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. I could see a zamperla multi launch going in if top thrill 2 works. I'm not so sure of an rmc any more due to multiple of their rides having reliability issues. I just hope that whatever goes in that spot eventually will be as photogenic as Vortex. I've always wanted a single rail but one capacity and two rmc's current reliability issues I think will make it not happen. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. So how long do we have to wait to see Don in ki's hall of fame or whatever they call it? Lol if anyone is deserving of it, it is definitely him. I loved talking to him any chance I got when I used to work at the park. Such an awesome person and I wish him the best of luck in his next chapter. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. I just realized this hasn't been posted on here yet. This was posted on King's Dominion's youtube channel but it's the same video as Kings Island. This is the "newer" full video as it doesn't talk about the outer limits name. A few lines of dialog were changed when the alien would talk when the outer limits name was dropped which can be seen in the shorter video version. However this has the prank and everything in it.

  8. I've got a really dumb question... Mostly cause I've never tried renewing this early. If I renew my pass now, will I still have my current drink package available until the end of Winterfest and then it just goes away (I have the paper cup version) or will I have to buy a new one as well if I want it for Winterfest?

  9. Still my favorite usher and one of my fav actors. Man I do miss those days working haunt. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. I have to admit... Tonight was the first night I actually got to see the show in person and it completely blew me away. Watching a video of it doesn't do it justice. This is the type of shoe I wish Kings Island always had. I hope they continue this type of show in the future instead of just for this season. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you so much for this. I've always wanted to hear the entire thing. Absolutely wonderful Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. Wow didn't realize how big this project was. That's crazy! Depending on how smooth it becomes I will have to debate on finally riding it. Definitely will be interesting to see the reviews next season when it reopens. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. Just remember... Whatever goes on that plot of land will surely start to sink [emoji14] yes obviously I'm being sarcastic.... Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. I just hope the food lines get sorted out as the season goes on [emoji14] I'm sure they will and it was just because everyone wanted to be at the park these last two weekends which is great, but I don't like standing in line for over 20 min just to get a drink lol.

  15. Reading everyone's reviews makes me feel good about trying to ride it... I've always wanted to ride Racer and Beast but I have a bad back and have always been nervous about trying to ride them cause I don't wanna be in pain afterwards lol. Think I just might have to get my first ride in on It this season. I know my limits and have always stuck to them but at the same time I've always felt like I've been missing out on these classic coasters glad to hear the retrack has made it smoother... I feel like I can deal with half of the ride being rough just not all of it lol. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
