#72279 The Butler County Fair in Hamilton, Ohio

Posted by SSR1966 on 13 September 2017 - 03:38 AM

I actually made the trip to Darke County Fair because you had mentioned that you saw a Zipper ride there. What a trip that ride was.

Personally, I found it to be the lamest county fair that I have been to. After being to Scioto, Brown and Dark County Fairs, this one was very small. Batavia is also very small, but the rides and crash up derby were free with admission. Butler charges for just about everything separate. And like you said, the animals looked sad, but they may have just been bored in a pin at a new place when they most likely have more room to roam at home.

The Butler County Fair happens every July at the Butler County Fair Grounds in the city of Hamilton.

A lot of people must really be interested in the Beverly Hills Super Club and no one gives a crap about Trenton Yard Sales. I thought Halloween Haunt would have done better than it did. It's kind of funny to me that more people are interested in the Cedar Point Arcade than the actual park or roller coasters.

#72236 Cedar Point Shores

Posted by SSR1966 on 30 August 2017 - 01:36 AM

Although I like the location of Cedar Shores being on the Beach, Soak City at Kings Island is like 3 or four times bigger, more modern and over all, a better water park. I guess if Cedar Shores was included with park admission it would be at crowd capacity almost every day of the summer, because it is so small.

#72033 Major attraction leaving after this year.

Posted by SSR1966 on 09 June 2017 - 06:14 PM

Firehawk attendance seems to be down as well, from my observation. I think because the wait is so long to ride, even on days when the park is not busy and the line is short. I wouldn't think they would move that one, however, because it is the only thing like it at Kings Island. Even it has a history of being moved, relocated to Kings Island from Geauga Lake in 2007. Unlike Vertigo, which seems kind of pointless since Banshee opened, despite the fact that visitors can ride backwards for half the ride. Removing Adventure Express or Vortex leaves a lot of open space for another coaster down the road, however.




#72030 Major attraction leaving after this year.

Posted by SSR1966 on 09 June 2017 - 03:58 AM

The latest rumor is that a major attraction will be leaving Kings Island this year.

 

Normally, my first guest would be Amazon Falls, because no one hardly rides that... but calling it a "major" attraction is being rather generous.

 

So my second guess would be Vortex, because more people hate getting beat up on that ride than there are people who enjoy it.

 

My third guess is Adventure Express, because most of the rides' dark elements haven't worked in a very long time and there is barely any upkeep on the elements that do still work (statues beating drums). Also, the company that made those coasters (Adventure and Vortex) has probably gone down hill, if it still exists at all, since the owner passed away, so replacement parts are going to become more difficult to come by (unless it's something that another company can duplicate, like a lift hill chain). But this is all just theory. I have no claim as to what is really going on with Arrow Dynamics or Kings Island.

 

The second rumor is that Ceder Fair is adding coasters to five of its parks in 2018. So my other theory is that they could take out Vertigo and move it to a smaller park, like Michigan Adventure or something, and replace its spot at Kings Island with a flat ride or with nothing at all. A used coaster is still a new coaster for a park that doesn't already have one like it. I can't imaging Kings Island getting another coaster after just debuting Mystic Timbers this year, but I guess stranger things have happened.




#71931 Waiting in line, pass preview night, for Mystic Timbers.

Posted by SSR1966 on 27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM

I only mentioned that the ride broke down because it was part of the 'waiting in line' experience. I'm not insinuating that the ride is a lemon or anything like that. My guess is that fixing it each time just consisted of someone pushing a re-set button.

The longest line I have ever waited in for a ride.
