  1. They’re busy trying to figure out what to up-charge us. Salt and pepper on your burger sir? $1.29 please.
  2. Looks like a great event! Thanks for sharing!
  3. Coastermania tickets available for purchase for Summer and Silver Passholders.
  4. Yes, and we both agree and came to that conclusion last time this subject was brought up, but that is ONLY the single day visitor. But on the topic of passholders and their importance. Do you think Kings Island which is not a destination park with hotels like Cedar Point, Universal, or Disney could survive with just single ticket holders? I'm in the camp of that wouldn't be the case. Last year on multiple occasions single day tickets were reduced, sometimes as low as $20! Just based off the numbers a ticket right now to get in plus parking, is around $75. A gold pass is in the ballpark of $150. So, for every individual passholder the money they spent is equivalent to 2 single day visitors. Kings Island does not have the market area to make that up if people only visited once a year, and they certainly wouldn't be getting anywhere near the number of visitors in a season. And once you factor in the dining and drink add on's being eliminated. People would return to eating off site or in the parking lot. I think passholders are quite important.
  5. My ACE card came in the mail today. Can’t wait to attendant my first ACE event next month!
  6. A single visitor is not going to outspend a season passholder if you factor in the entirety of the season. We've had this discussion previously. Also you elude to an annual visitor spending more than $500 for a single / few visits? I highly doubt that. Unless we are talking about a visitor who is also staying in a park owned hotel / resort. Kings Island has no park owned overnight lodging options. And I'm willing to discuss that the average passholder is not visiting anywhere near as often you claim they are. More than likely CF prices their season passes based of how many times the average passholder visits VS an "enthusiast" is not your average passholder.
  7. The only downside with this early extra weekends means the park won’t have everything ready for opening Haunt / WF.
  8. I was around, however I did not have the all season meal plan. So I honestly couldn’t tell you. I just remember how horrible the implementation was of it when it first came out.
  9. What we are seeing as far as CF goes is nothing necessarily new. For example the first year of the season long dining plan:
  10. Great episode that highlights a lot of questions with the current direction of CF. It is true that a lot of it stems from communication and a lot of folks like to blame a certain individual here. However, folks should also realize that person is also relying off getting information from those of higher authority within the chain. Bureaucracy can be a Bee sometimes. I agree 2025 might be the year to hold off on going all in on a season pass. CF has historically been horrible at implementing new things. I anticipate post-merger of this to be any less different.
  11. By "listening" you mean, people are not renewing their pass.
  12. The township was not, they had the power to acquire the pool via imminent domain.
  13. I heard rumors that members of the CSO get a commemorative chunk of the pool.
  14. At this rate the “Save Coney Islanders” are willing to die on the hill that is Sunlite pool. Yet the pool is a lost cause and the support for the still remaining structures should be the new focus. However these “Save Coney Islanders” really are just the “Save Sunlite pool” group that doesn’t want to work with CSO or MEMI about saving what’s left of the park. Sadly, there won’t be anything other than the gate left, when it’s all said and done with the current direction. Just point fingers and blame. However, there will still be people protesting on top of a shiny new blacktop where Sunlite pool once was.
