  1. This used to be fun when I was a kid and to short to get my face slammed back and forth between the over the shoulder harness. But even nostalgia won't make me miss this painful ride. I hope they save and reuse the coaster station for what ever goes in there next. That and Flight of Fear are the only two stations with any class.
  2. I don't know. I go so much I have never had a reason to get any kind of fast lane. I do know, however, that the haunted house fast lane is different from the ride fast lane.
  3. I just read somewhere that the Farmer's Almanac is predicting this winter is going to be a rough one.
  4. I'll be at Haunt opening night Friday and I'm trying to get someone to go to West Virginia with me for the Mothman Festival, on Saturday. So if I don't post anything this weekend, that is why.
  5. "Fans of Coney Island’s rides will have a few chances to experience them one last time as the park opens this Saturday and Sunday. Their final day of operation will be Sept. 21, when Coney Island hosts the Fire Up the Night fireworks competition." "Coney Island will remove all of its rides in order to focus on its Sunlite Pool along with its surrounding water features in the coming months." read the rest of the article here. http://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/09/09/exclusive-here-s-why-coney-island-s-rides-are.html
  6. As best as I can tell, Redbrush park closed. http://www.jacksoncountyhistory.org/items/show/531
  7. The guys who own and built the Schlitterbahn water parks are the brains behind many slides in use at various water parks to this day. I believe even certain ones at Kings Island (I'm fairly certain my fave, the giant funnel looking one, is one of their creations), are their creations. There was a reality show following them as they were attempting to build the tallest raft drop. The show ended before they ever got it to work. Allegedly they ended up opening it without ever perfecting its problems and the then Kansas State Representative, Scott Schwab's, 16 year old son got decapitated on the ride.
  8. I used to co-host a music program on W.A.I.F. radio so I collected a lot of music to play during that program. W.A.I.F. is a none profit, public radio station in Cincinnati where everyone volunteers and DJs bring their own music.
  9. Not at all. I have the Disco Duck album on CD-R.
  10. I was thinking maybe a 4-D theater, but I was under the impression that they still had at least 1 of the two theaters in the Motion Theater building (The other theater being used for Urgent Scare). But even if nothing works in there anymore (assuming the theater guts are still in there), just the shape of the the auditorium would make it ideal for refitting for a new show... unless the size of the auditorium is just not big enough for what they want to do. Plus it is so far back behind Windseeker, people might not want to walk that far for a 4-D movie. But all I can do is speculate. Tomb Raider doesn't seem like it would have enough floor space for a dark ride, sooo...
  11. So construction is going on inside the old Tomb Raider building. Whether it is going to be a ride or some kind of new show in unknown. The only hint that we have is that it is going to utilize lasers and bubbles.
