  1. Looks like we may get an announcement on the next tribute store for the summer on the 29th. From what you could see in the preview it looks like Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, Jaws and maybe Back to the Future? Definitely excited to check out the new tribute store, any guesses on when it will open up?
  2. Did anyone else notice the issues with the loudspeakers in the park today? Banshee's Station Opp comm system wasn't working for the first part of the day, Adventure Port's mix had some audio squelching every few minutes on certain notes/keys. Definitely was more noticeable on the deck at Enrique's than the walking path.
  3. Ditto, honestly was surprised when I saw it back at the Sweet Spot. If they could offer some baking supplies IE biscuits, cobbler mix, etc. . I think they could seriously drive sales with buy one get one half off or packages like what Knotts does online.
  4. ^Let us know how it is. I almost went for it but decided to hold back for what I know is good.
  5. Did I buy the hot sauce? Not yet, but I did get some syrup and jam!
  6. Enrique’s has Pineapple chunks for their burritos and they’re really good, same portions for the burritos. However heads up for the foodies, drink plans have been working sporadically. My drink plan didn’t show up at Enrique’s I’m going to try some other locations. Update- worked at Coney BBQ!
  7. New hats! Also there’s still boysenberry goodies at the sweet spot!
  8. Shipping container bar is still in Action Zone which I’m actually shocked it’s still here and in operation.
  9. I am far beyond the ACE fanboy who wears a jean jacket with every patch from their favorite coasters who have their top 32 steel or wood off the top of their head; or can be caught dead wearing a coaster shirt to a theme park. I elected to un renew my GOCC, I elected to not do coaster events as I actually got bored of the politics in it and I felt like it was getting repetitive for my tastes to go every year. If that's for you that's great and I wish all the best for you, but it's definitely not me anymore. I worked at the park, I frequent the park as a guest , but in no way shape or form am I in the cavalcade of fanboy enthusiasts any more after going into the corporate world as frankly I just simply do not have the time nor effort to put in effort to do so. I spend close to $400.00 some odd dollars for a product with addons that I believed had the same value as the product I bought literally right after I left KI because I loved the advent of having free access to other parks. I have a pass for USO I use quite regularly, which I know gets me certain perks and a clearly defined benefits package. It's a different cadre of benefits to what CF can offer sure but in years past having a CF Platinum Pass gave you these benefits we have been talking about here. If they told me "Access to other park events may be pendant on your home park gold pass" at the beginning of this, I think I would be far more mute on my concerns. I had no intention on going to the CP event, but I understand where people are coming from however I like to know what my money actually gets me as every benefit adds some intrinsic value. Calling customers or better yet enthusiasts who basically already shill for the park enough ad homenems for a switch up of the norms for a pretty large coaster is honestly sad. If you have such an issue with the enthusiast group just read the thread like I have and maybe, possibly, sowing dissent but not going out attacking people on it. If you have time to come to KIC and throw dissent at people, effectively calling them whiny enthusiasts to make some sick point which I still don't understand why you even needed to say that, at people for being upset about something you don't care about and go into depth on it, why not use that time to be more productive than to post on a forum? Yes, I understand park staffing, yes I know quite well park politics, also I know how important this coaster is to CP moving forward. While yes, it may upset people that they won't be able to get in, it's also a logistics issue that the park was not able to rectify. I would even go as far as to argue to create a Gold Pass All Park Passport Day to celebrate all of the new park passport passholders as I can really see that being a hit with all of the passholders in general. I know it sucks, I know it's rough when you already planned for this so far out, but the powers that be decided to do this. At this point, if the chain wants to go this route then looking at where I renew is something I should be taking in consideration. (A topic Ryan brought up in the Tower Topics podcast and I 100% agree)
  10. Remember when you could get a Platinum Pass and not worry about your benefits? Pepperidge Farms remembers In all seriousness I understand from a logistical standpoint why they’re doing this but also I think from an organizational standpoint communication about perks and benefits have been subpar. This is the second time this year that I know of, that a pass “perk” was ripped due to a clause that frankly feels like it’s being pulled too often. I know there’s great people who work in CF, I worked with them, I know their zeal for the guest experience but botched rollouts like this can seriously affect guest sentiments.
  11. Not too long ago the Music Hall was seeking tax benefits from the state and city. I’m somewhat tempted to ask how does the city and state feel that this organization who got a tax break is now destroying a local icon? What does the City of Cincinnati or better yet the state of Ohio have to say on these matters? I place blame 50% on the original owners, 50% on MEMI. They should have known this kind of backlash would come, I’m interested to see if any action may come from the legislative side of things.
  12. My biggest pet peeve about KI WF is that they don’t have operations in the first few weekends of the year. Seeing KK take this on and put up more time for their Christmas event is a very positive nod at their prospects of resilience for the season. I would be very interested to see how KI reacts if at all.
  13. This just made my day! I’m glad to hear that the park actually saw this was an issue and made corrective action same day. Faith in CF restored!
  14. I’m still confused on why we now have 3 conflicting reports. Shouldn’t this be on an internal cheat sheet? Is there this much of a disconnect that mgt>associate>corporate communications are misaligned? I have receipts, I can even show when I called in my contacts last night. Why is this such a quagmire?
  15. "Season Pass benefits subject to change without notice. If you plan to visit other Cedar Fair parks with the purchase of an All Park Passport Add-On - Gold and Prestige Passholder benefits may vary by park. Contact the park you are planning to visit for any questions regarding applicable benefits." So this is the fall back the chain is using moving forward. I'm honestly not impressed by the counter point of saying you get your platinum pass benefits and then turning around and removing the one benefit helping you make the decision. Color me not impressed.
