  1. I rode it and most of everything did not work at all.... At least in the car we rode in the blasters worked but over half of the targets didn't work and most of the props were broken and didn't move..... They didn't seem to give the ride any attention during the off season

  3. I like boo blasters and have quite a bit of fun on the ride but I would honestly like to see a new dark ride. I feel like even when they do repair the props and blasters it doesn't take long for them to break again. There are times when I have ridden the ride where hardly anything is working at all. I would love a new dark ride but honestly I'd rather not have a shooting dark ride if we ever get a new one. We could hope that they have fixed all of the props and blasters for this season but I just have a feeling that that's not the case. While I'd like a new dark ride I honestly hope this one doesn't end up closing mid way through the season if a new ride is going to replace it. This is one ride my wife and I can ride together since she has gotten to the point where she gets sick while riding most of the rides at ki. If they were to close this one early that's one less ride we could ride together.

  4. I'm right there with ya magenta... I do too care much for beer but am willing to try some new things and I feel like this might be a good way to do that.... I don't wanna pay $10 for one type of beer at the store and then not even like it as to where with this, I can try many different types and the food sounds like it will be good

  5. Ah ok. I just found it weird how they worded it on the app. How it was worded on the app, it looked like they were charging season pass holders and also had the pass holder bring a friend option for the same price. I didn't check the actual website since I'm on my phone. Guess I should have taken a closer look at it.

    Edited to add that the season pass picture they used was that of a gold pass which is what confused me

  7. I was just looking at the ki app under the Dinosaurs Alive! Page and it looks like they are back to charging pass holders to get into the trail. I know most of you don't really care about the attraction but I know some of you with kids who do like the attraction might find this upsetting. Granted it looks like the price is only $2.50 to get in but still. I find it funny since the last season or two they looked pass holders to go in for free.

  8. Let the countdown begin... I've just recently (within the last few days/also last night) renewed my wife and I's season passes and are planning on going to opening day even though it is sure to be crowded... She doesn't like riding most of the rides anymore but she does like walking around with me at the park. I really cant wait till next weekend which means it's gonna be a very long week for me

  9. I didn't notice the cannon last year either but I had seen it in there in prior years. Most of the props were in the actual museum portion of the maze, pretty much the middle of it.

    The giant rat is also used in Board to Death in the Mouse Trap room

    I knew I saw some others in other mazes but I couldn't remember which props they were. As for Madame Fatales they used to have the Cannon in there as well as last year they had the mummy coffin in there. There are a few others I believe like one of the romantic guards statues in there if I remember right. I don't remember all of thr props used in there but there were like three or four that I remember pointing out that were from Phantom Theater.
  10. This makes me really excited. We haven't had a good dark ride since Phantom Theater imo... I would love for them to take a spin with the story of the ammunition factory. Only problem I see with that route though is I could see some one complaining about it being insensitive towards the families that lost loved ones in the explosions but I hear stories about that every year when Haunt starts.

  11. I seriously can't wait for this. I plan on going Fri night and on opening day. I am so giddy and keep jumping up and down pretty much when I think about the new season :) and as far as which rides will be open I'm pretty sure that it would be all of them because I know in the past they started doing dry run days for the park so the employees could get back into the rhythm of things and for new hires to get a good feel for their job. Plus it's a way to get the rides to slowly get back up and running in hopes that they won't be down as much for opening day. Not saying this is what it really is though.

  12. The furnace is used in Slaughterhouse I believe and some of the props are already used in Madame Fatales from what I could see. I haven't seen many props being used during Haunt like they used to do but there are still a few being used.

  13. I got the season long plan last year and loved it. I never really ate in the park before due to the costs but with the plan I was willing to stay in the park longer. As someone said earlier, when you do the math it pays for itself in just 5 visits to the park (if you get both meals in one day) I personally only used it once each time I visited last year but that's because I would go in the evening but I used it every time I went as well. I think it's a great option if you plan on visiting often during the season. On a side note, will you be able to use the plan during season pass preview night? I assume you would be able to but I figured I would try to find out before I go

  14. In my opinion, it wouldn't take too much thought to come up with a variety of ideas that would greatly improve Boo Blasters and enhance the guest experience. There have been many, many times, as we're waiting in line, my wife and I have discussed changes that we'd make if we were in charge of such things. During the 15 minute or so queue, we've come up with a variety of ways we'd improve the ride.

    This being said, I don't think it's a matter of "can the ride be improved" it's "do they want to improve the ride?" My guess would be no. It was a lazy install from the get-go. The ride is basically Scooby Doo and the Haunted Mansion without Scooby Doo and the gang. It was the cheapest, lamest, most generic modification that anyone could ever give a ride. Although it appears that no thought was put into the ride, I think that's misleading. I think great thought was put into the ride, but the thought was "how can we do this the cheapest way possible" and not "how can we make this ride the greatest possible?" And that right there is the problem.

    Would I like to see Boo Blasters improved upon? Well, if this was the year 2010 or 2011 that answer would be yes. However, it's nearing the 2015 season and we've dealt with this ride in it's condition for this long, I'd say let's just ride it out and pray for a complete overhaul within the next couple of years or so. That would be the best thing that could ever happen to that ride in my opinion. Just get rid of it completely and overhaul that space.

    Next time I hope they give us something worth while in the building, something to be proud of. There were so many great rides in that space and Boo Blasters is really a disgrace to the history of that building. Let's hope that it doesn't have too many seasons left!

    I can think of a few examples that were even worse...example...renaming Top Gun to Flight Deck and doing nothing else with the ride theme wise granted now as The Bat, they have actually "themed" it now....at least more than they did before.
