  1. Kudos to the Disney cast member for his handling of the situation.
  2. Typically ride crews arrange power hours themselves...there is no pressure from management that a crew is required to have a power hour. Typically, you can find these occuring the last hour or two before the park closes.
  3. The park is closed August 25-28 mostly due to staffing issues with their employees being back in school...and also a lot of their guests.
  4. Correct, and the fact that the water was causing horrible hard water stains on the Mini's. The side of the trains did not have neon green lights when the ride opened. From my understanding of some folks who opened the ride, the "stair bump" was installed, but amounted to nothing more than the feeling that you were rolling over a rough piece of track. I.E. Imagine sitting on a vibrating cell phone. The "effect" didn't translate well. The effect was installed through the audio system which never really was fully installed and eventually abandoned. The fog in the tunnel was cool. But yeah, the whole thing was way too over-engineered and didn't have the visuals that everyone was promised. Unfortunately the ride was never really 100% completed as marketed.
  5. What do you mean? Of COURSE I like Vortex. Was it something I said in the PTR? Edit: If you meant the air hockey playing piece, I understand now. I don't know how that got there. But for future reference, I'm not the best at picking up "sarcasm." Just so you know. Ah jeez... I see I'm going to have to display this picture to explain my comment (which takes all the fun out of it)...
  6. Correct... Under 2 train operation the second train is parked (usually) on lift 2. This is false because that's not how they do it on the Cedar Creek Mine Ride at Cedar Point. Facepalm Of course...how could I be so ignorant
  7. Correct... Under 2 train operation the second train is parked (usually) on lift 2.
  8. KI went through this exact same situation at the beginning of this season and they survived.
  9. That is not how the Speed Lane worked at IJST. Boddah1994 describes it best:
  10. The most I've ever paid for Slingshot is $0... Ah...brings back memories of riding close to 40 times in a row on a crisp day in early March.
  11. ^Hope that pool was heavily sanitized after the event. Just thinking of the number of people who didn't want to get out to use the restroom due to the risk of not being able to get back into the wave pool.
  12. Article from the Cincinnati Enquirer that was posted earlier this morning. http://news.cincinnati.com/article/AB/20130613/NEWS01/306130041/Kings-Island-angers-special-needs-parents?odyssey=obinsite I have my own opinion on this matter, but I'm curious to see what everyone else thinks. Thoughts?
  13. I do love how they say its the 2nd time this year that a ride has "unexpectedly" gone down. Guess all the downtime that rides experience everyday must be planned according to this media outlet.
