  1. I was watching the parade with my mother when this happened. I got up and was flipping out because of how funny I thought it was. Then I had to explain to my mother what a "Rick Roll" was. What happened to the red hair? I thought it was a gag not the real Alfred.
  2. I agree, I remember riding it it's opening year!!
  3. That is weird, LOS being a waist to taxpayers is all I hear about. Most conversation and what the news reports are "We just tore down the RCA Dome, and we are still paying on it. It went over budget, we did not need a new building." I also hear they are having issues with upkeep and renting it out. All I hear is the negatives? I will say though it is a nice looking building and it put the RCA Dome to shame, but it is gone now.
  4. Thanks for the PTR. As you know by my screen name I live in Indy, but never have gone down town and enjoyed the scenery.
  5. Looks cool, but I praobbly would not go even if it was local to me.
  6. I bet they will plant some trees. The off ride rendering videos show a lot of trees as you ride. Just will take another 5 to 10 years for them to be as big as they are in the video. EDIT: Just noticed I got promoted to KIC Junky!
  7. No Admission fee into the park this Season. http://www.indianabeach.com/pages/indianabeach_news
  8. Indiana Beach has revamped their site. Wasn't that well overdue? Looks great! http://www.indianabeach.com/
  9. I had a KI dream the other night. The park was not very busy and a lot of the rides had no operator. Drop Tower was called Drop Tower, but was like Double Shot at Indiana Beach except it was totally red. There were no ride attendants at DT and my buddy and I were looking at how it worked. There was no one else around and we were then standing in the seat looking behind them to see what was on the other side of the seats. The ride came on by itself and we were taken up and dropped with us standing in the seats with no restraints. Neither one of us fell out of DT nor were we hurt. Park security saw it and thought we started the ride ourselves. I was explaining what happened when the dream ended? What do you make of that?
  10. It would be cool to know the cost comparison for today on the same exact construction work.
  11. The sun blocker chap stick seems to work well. I have not had the issue since? I forget to put any on most of the time. Although, it was like the 4th day of spending 4 to 5 hours in the water when it happened.
  12. I know!!! when I saw them just walking around my stomach did flips..I was thinking to myself...HA! FORGET THAT...I know I wouldnt be able to do something like that...Im afraid of heights too much to do something that brave.. I hope they got hazard pay for that!! I wonder if their life insurance got automatically canceled or tripled in price?
  13. I think I have seen people fold them up and place them in the bigger sections near the front and back of a car. I have never done it though.
  14. Yeah, looks like 2 trains. The sun is making it hard to see inside the storage area, but I definitely see 2 on the track.
  15. Thanks for sharing. The last time I was there I spent so much time in the water and did not sun screen my bottom lip, and it swelled up about 3 times the size the next morning. Hurt a lot and spend most of the day holding ice on it... Make sure you don't forget to sun screen your lips as well. I know you would not think they would get burned, but I learned the hard way.
  16. This will be my first B&M as well. I hope it holds up to all the hype people have given them!! Cya There!
  17. Welcome to KIC as a member!! Be careful, it will suck you in as you have seen in the above posts!
  18. It seems the ride scared everyone, just not the way they were hoping.
  19. Well seeing as that the park opens in just a bit more than a month, I can bet on it that they're testing ALL of their rides. Not all the attention goes to the new coaster lol. DB Blog confirms all of these posts... It's that time of year! March 14, 2009 While test runs on Diamondback continue, other rides in the park are awakening from a long winter's nap. The trains have been placed on the tracks of several of the park's coasters and initial testing has begun on rides such as Drop Tower. We hope you're as excited as we are to get the 2009 season started! - Don Helbig
  20. It is going to be cool to ride DB at night don't you think? They have the station and splashdown lit up nicely. I was thinking the same thing goofy on the queue area, but I have been wrong before..
  21. Interesting, never would have thought that?
  22. I don't believe they park any train on the lifts. When they had the campground I used to camp there a lot and was right next to Flight Desk sometimes camping and never saw them park a train on the lift at night. Secondly, Vortex has storage for 2 and I am guessing the 3rd train stays in the station. Flight Deck has storage track for both trains if I am not mistaken. Yes they do, but when I worked in '07 they always parked one of Flight Deck's trains on the lift. Vortex they left one in the station and one on each of the breakruns. They would put them in the sheds if it was pouring rain or something, but why would they go through the trouble of putting trains in shed if they could just leave them out and save the work. I never saw that, but the campground has been gone for some time. I agree with you. They are going to be used again in 12 hours why move them. For FD though, I still don't understand why they would not run a train around the track and leave it on the brake run and leave the other in the station? There has to be a reason for that?

  24. The station is really taking shape, get that queue line and inspection done and they will be ready open the doors!!
