  1. I like both Star Trek and Star Wars, although episodes 1 through 3 of Star Wars left a lot to be desired.

    Fantasy Farm book

    Scott E, Fowler, the author of LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park (part of the "Images Of America" series), released a follow up book this past summer about the Fantasy Farm Amusement Park. I have never seen or read either book, since I just now found out about them, but I hear there are plenty of photos in each. I'm looking forward to checking them both out. http://www.journal-news.com/news/news/fantasy-farm-lives-again-in-new-book/ngdY6/

    Unfortunately, no. I'm scheduled for a double shift on that day.

    Fantasy Farm book

    This Saturday, November 8, Barns & Nobles in West Chester is having an author event where local authors from Arcadia Publishing, the publishers of the Images Of America series, will be on hand to sign and talk about their books. Details on which authors are going to be there are a bit sketchy, but I'm 90% sure Scott Fowler who did the Americana and Fantasy Farm books is going to be there and maybe possibly Joy Kraft who did the Cincinnati Zoo book. Probably wouldn't hurt to call and confirm before driving out there. 513-755-2258 http://store-locator.barnesandnoble.com/event/4763063

    Tombstone Terror-tory

    I just learned that the old west town at LeSourdsville Lake used to be called Tombstone Territory before they bulit the log flume in 1984, at which time the name was changed to Logger's Run.

    Make a video

    I could not remember the name of the place either but found the video above in a Google search. I was thinking it was something like Putting On The Hits. I never tried it out either but stood in front and watched videos being recorded on the monitor from time to time. I think it was $20.00 to record, which was a lot of money back in the early 80's/ late 90's. Heck, that's still a lot of money to me in 2014.

    Apparently it was called Sound Tracks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GBPa6_1iCE
  8. While park officials are remaining mum on recent construction activity at the park, plans submitted to the city of Mason reveal the new attraction to be an indoor haunted maze, which could debut as early as this fall when Kings Island opens its eighth annual Halloween Haunt. You can read the rest here ---> http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/local/2014/07/08/whats-lurking-at-kings-island/12372243/ In the Cajun folklore of French Louisiana, a rougarou is a werewolf that prowls the swamps and bayous around New Orleans and southern Louisiana. The red-eyed, long-fanged creature is said to stalk unfortunate late-night walkers.

    New haunt maze under construction? 2014

    Besides Slaughter House Reloaded next to The Beast, they have another new maze in Coney Maul called Kill Mart. Not sure where it will be since Urgent Scare, Delta Delta Die and Board To Death are all still listed as being in Coney, but it looks to be the Dinosaurs Alive spot for Birthday parties. The only maze I see missing is Holiday Horrors that was in Planet Snoopy. No new Scare Zones. Skeleton Crew, which sounds like an off shoot of Cirque Imagine, looks to be going into Showplace Theater, replacing the long running Hot Blooded. Blood Drums and Ghouls Gone Wild are both returning. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/scream#&panel1-1

    New haunt maze under construction? 2014

    I'm guessing it will still be called Slaughter House, just in a new and much bigger location, but that is only a guess.

  14. A roller coaster hit a tree branch at the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park outside Los Angeles on Monday, dislodging the front car, leaving four people slightly injured and keeping nearly two-dozen summer fun-seekers hanging 20-30 feet in the air for hours as day turned to night. You can read the rest here ---> http://www.people.co...tain-california If I was trapped on a roller coaster for three hours, I would end up peeing my pants. I just don't think I could go that long without having to go. .
  15. Five members of a Vermont family assaulted police officers during a melee that erupted when security guards at a New Hampshire amusement park, Canobie Lake Park, told them to leave their knives in the car, police said Tuesday.

  16. Apparently, Sunlight Pool has also been closed that last 2 or 3 days do to a pipe break. the pool is supposed to reopen today. Lots of pipes and lines breaking going around for it not even being winter.

    Roller Coaster videos

    So a friend of mine has been to Universal Studios in Singapore and has ridden the Battlestar Galactica coaster. I looked it up on You Tube to watch a point of view video and it looks pretty damn awesome. Its two coasters intertwined, a sit down coaster representing the human race and a hanging coaster for the Cylons. Parts of the Cylon footage was making me feel a bit nauseas but it looks way more fun than the human coaster. How great would it be to travel the world and try different rides and coasters? http://youtu.be/jWJYeimZUPo I would like to see some videos of rides and/or coasters that you loved or would like to ride someday.

    Roller Coaster videos

    I'm hoping I get to try out the Kentucky Rumbler at Beech Bend this summer. I'm kind of broke at the moment so I shale see if this pans out or not. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQp5wZn67po
  19. They'll probably get a back up after this.
