#71192 BLOG: Live entertainment part of the Halloween Haunt experience

Posted by I Am A Rider on 20 October 2015 - 09:13 PM

From what I hear, a lot of people were glad to see Hot Blooded return, Mr. Roberts.

New person should check out all the terrific photography and great history on this site.


#71124 Cedar Fair Pickers & the return of vintage amusement park rides.

Posted by I Am A Rider on 27 August 2015 - 06:31 PM

Saw an episode of Pickers that featured an old coin-operated ride made in Cincy between 1951 and 1954. Instead of the usual ponies, etc., it was an original paint red metal boar. Not an amusement park ride, but still interesting They used to have some newer versions years ago at kids' arcades and malls as I recall. Never knew the company was in Cincinnati. Still hoping to have them discover an old Ferris wheel or something........


#70146 KI 5/2 BANSHEE ERT

Glad you liked the ride, Mr. Genesis. Have heard a lot people like the ride better at night.

Forgot about Woodstock Express. Don't even remember what it was called when we used to ride with kids many many years ago.....

Excellent coverage, Mr. BeastForever. Nice to see The Bat painted nice and bright. Looks so much better.

Does look as if the dining plan is a good deal, Mr. ohiocolts. Glad you enjoyed Banshee. Heard a lot of people got sick from all the loops. Better ride first and eat chicken later!

Funny comment, Mr. Paramount4ever. Gave me a chuckle.


#69995 Kings Island announcement today at 4:00 pm.

Posted by I Am A Rider on 13 March 2014 - 03:50 PM

Kind of figured as much. Sounds like it will be a good show, Mr. Roberts. They do still need to build a restroom or ten........


#69988 Beast's celebrates it's 35 Anniversary

It is a nice logo.......as far as memory - my sister came close to passing out - her one and only ride on the Beast.


#69813 KINGS ISLAND HIRES EXECUTIVE CHEF

Posted by I Am A Rider on 06 January 2014 - 12:11 PM

Have had this same idea for years, Mr. Paramount4ever! Maybe if we keep wishing...........


#69788 KINGS ISLAND HIRES EXECUTIVE CHEF

Posted by I Am A Rider on 30 December 2013 - 02:54 PM

I agree, Mr. Paramount4ever. It would be a great year-round destination. I personally don't find the food at Great Wolf appealing; it would certainly be a good alternative......and a much, much better view.


#69744 KINGS ISLAND HIRES EXECUTIVE CHEF

The old restaurant there was a favorite of mine, Mr. Paramount4ever. Have thought for years they should reopen it. And the chef could still help out in the other areas, Mr. Genesis, but I don't expect them to reopen it. It had good food, too.

It is a wonderful park and has been missed.........great rides, scenic, and the best BBQ.........

If that will be the new name, it's certainly appropriate, Gentlemen.


#69384 Flight Deck name change!

This makes a good Halloween trick, Mr. Paramount4ever - now they're stuck in my brain along with the very very old Banana Boat song. But it's a lot more fun than some of the things that won't "unstick." Maybe a trick or treater will show up in a banana costume.............

Mr. YS, you're right, the logos do seem similar.
