  1. My crotch doesn't miss King Kobra at all. *owch*
  2. I've been expecting it since Universal Orlando cancelled their annual Halloween Horror Nights like about two or three weeks ago. I just got an add today that Land of Illusions is opening in like 30 days. I wonder if it will just be the trail open or maybe animatronics only, no actors. I could see various Haunted Trails opening up since you will be out side where it would be easier to keep social distancing. Winterfest at Kings Island is like 80 % performers, and with what attendance has been lately, The park could potentially loos a lot more money than what they won;t make by not opening.
  3. Kings Island is open until 10:00 P.M. tonight! (8-01-20)
  4. Ah, yes. The Beach On Ice. That was a pretty fun event for being such a small budgeted affair. The ice surface for the skating rink was horrible, though.
  5. I rode one at Brown County Fair a few yeas ago, but didn't feel pressed to ride it again when I saw it at Dark County Fair, Coney Island Cincinnati or Michigan Adventures. The one at Brown County would go around clockwise, then change directions and go around backwards. The other 3 went clockwise for the entire ride, and then the next set of riders would go in reverse. It was like they broke the ride cycle into two parts.
  6. Indiana Beach is opening a new (to them) flat ride in the next week or so. They are mostly done assembling it and just need to do the testing. It is the Flying Bobs ride. As a matter of fact it came from Coney Island here in Cincinnati. If they were planning on only buying one ride, I am not sure why decided to pick that one. Maybe it was was the only ride left for sale or the price was just too good to past up.
  7. The Beach had an early model of Water Coaster where you would go all the way up a hill carrying your raft then gravity power would pull you to the bottom. It was a lot of fun. I only ever got to ride it twice, once each on to different visits.
  8. This is my first time hearing of this, but Holiday World opened their water park, Splashin' Safari, this last July 4th. They also debuted their new water coaster on this day called Cheetah Chase. This is the a dueling water coaster that is powered by propulsion with targeted water nozzles. it is also the first closed circuit water coaster. That means instead of starting at the top and getting off at the bottom, you go in a complete circuit and get off in the same station where you got on. The article I read said that this third water coaster makes makes Holiday World the water coaster capital
  9. Because of Corona, 18 rides have not opened this year or have closed. I am speculating that this is just because they do not have enough employees to open everything, although the park hasn't given a reason that I am aware of. The park brings in a lot of foreigners to work, but with all the air travel bans and restrictions going on this has become more of a challenge this year. Surprisingly, Top Thrill Dragster is one of the closed rides, but the park hopes to get it open eventually. The rides currently closed include... the Antique Cars, SlingShot, WindSeeker, Rougarou rol
  10. Not only nuts, but stupid and a real lack of common sense these days.
  11. There is no rush. Just take your time and do a little at a time.
  12. Since your quarantined any way, You should take an hour or two every other day, organize and box all your collection together, like your old CDs and photos. You could give the photos to your kids and sell the other stuff.
  13. Walt Disney World has confirmed that three current attractions have permanently closed. The first is the Stitch's Great Escape ride in The Magic Kingdom, which only opened on extremely busy days because no one liked it and not many people ever rode it. The second is the Primeval Whirl, which is basically a "wild mouse" coaster with spinning seats with hard turns that slammed riders around. It is considered by many riders to painfull and the spinning seats made them sick. The one time I was at the Magic Kingdom I never saw either of these attractions and never heard of either one befo
  14. I have yet to get one of the snoopy ones. I only had enough money last moth to buy the new Halloween Haunt, Phantom Theater, Festhause, Adventure Express, and Vortex (1987 - 2019). This month I am hoping to get a nice new Kings Island pin with the tower on it and Flight of Fear. if I have enough for a third one I'm not sure which one I will get yet. Maybe an Orion one.
  15. I got a new Halloween Haunt that isn't pictured here and this is the first time I have seen Flight of Fear. They also have new this year Snoopy driving the K.I. Train and another of him driving an antique car.
