  1. IMO, it's ran its course as a pay attraction. Free? Sure, keep it around but don't charge people for a half assed(present day) attraction.
  2. Someone get this man a cookie.
  3. Nothing broke. Still down for it's annual maintenance.
  4. I think he's referring to the video...it's well done, but I mean c'mon, it's pretty cheesy. Cheesy it may be but those people were all volunteers- they did not have to do it. They wanted to! it was fun making it, regardlesss of whether you think it was well done or not. That was a lot of people getting out of their comfort zones to try and inspire others to join them. I know I sound like a broken record (but hey, recruiting was part of my job ) but it really can be fun working there. Im not going to get into the specifics, but things like this video made associates excited to be a part of something larger than themselves. Besides the video, there are NUMEROUS other perks and incentives and celebrations involved in being an employee. The perks of being a seasonal associate are nowhere near what they used to be. They have been either been scaled back or eliminated all together.
  5. This makes me miss working there even more. [emoji17] You're kidding right?
  6. I never said they didn't care about their trademarks. They (the people that matter when it comes to their trademarks) just don't care if a ride name gets capitalized on a fan boy message board. Especially a ride that has been gone for 20 years.
  7. Thanks for reminding me why I don't like coming here much anymore. Like it or not, you do, and as such you're bound by the TOS. Is it really that hard to hit the shift key? I see you capitalized "I". I'm not questioning on whether or not ride names need to be capitalized on a fanboy message board. Frankly. I don't care and pro tip: neither does Cedar Fair. However, Let the SITE STAFF enforce it.

  9. The controls operator box for the old Skylab attraction made its rounds around the park for various uses. Last time I saw it, it was being used for an attendent to monitor the gold pass parking area although this was a few years ago. Edit: you can see it if you look at the parking lot via Bing Maps "Birds Eye" view.
  10. Not sure where or how this idea got started but Winterfest of 2005 was not planned to simply show off the park to potential buyers.
  11. That new front gate is gonna be sharp. Can't wait to see the finished product.
  12. Not quite sure I understand. He collapsed from heat exhaustion then burned himself?
  13. No. Prefect North is the exact same price... it just offers much more. Wow. You think they(The Beach) would price themselves lower? Maybe aim for the "value" aspect?
  14. What is it with places making winter tubing so pricey? Perfect North is even pricier if I recall.
  15. I'm sure they know. I'm also sure they don't care. It serves its purpose.
  16. Having spent the last two years in kiddy land with present day four year old twins, I'll throw in my two cents. Did my kids know who the Peanuts were before they started going to KI? No. Did they care what brand there was? Not one bit. If anything, their exposure to the Peanuts gang at KI has led them to see what the Peanuts were all about outside of KI. Can't begin to tell you how many times we've watched "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" the past few months. Now that they are more familiar with the Peanuts, it makes each visit that much more special for them. Not sure if that's what Cedar Fair was gunning for when they went with a less familiar brand but hey, whatever works. I'll say this, we threw down quite a bit of cash this year on Peanuts plush in the merch shop so kudos to Cedar Fair, mission accomplished. As for the removal of water maze, I guess the bad finally outweighed the good. Sure there was never a line and there was little maintenance needed on it but it always seemed like such a liability having that attraction around. Then again, I guess it's no different than the tipping bucket over in the waterpark.
  17. With all due respect to Mr.Helbig, he is a PR guy, not maintenance. Unless he has done said maintenance job, there's no way he can honestly answer your questions.
  18. www.queencitydiscovery.com for an awesome article on the resort.
  19. I'm sure Adventure Holdings isn't event a blip on Kings Island's radar. They should be. Took the family to The Beach several times this season over Soak City and where we went, so did our money for food, merchandise, etc.
  20. Regardless of the location, families with teens or ACErs, is not the demo they are trying to attract with the installation of a Flying Scooter ride, hence the 36 inch height requirement.
  21. I believe the squeeling wheels but I'm calling bull**** on your claim of "sparks or something coming out of the wheels."
  22. If you think "Great taste, less filling," is inappropriate then you probably shouldn't leave the house.
  23. Everyone looks at me like I have five heads when I bring this old Viking Fury tradition up.
