  1. What do they gain by vandalizing Lesourdsville Lake? Idiots...
  2. There is an Admiral on that site? No adjunant general though?
  3. It looks great - but had insane lines both times I was up there.
  4. Yeah didn't they call that the Branson Gate of Paramount Studios or something? I could see them keeping the sign up - just getting rid of the Paramount on top of it.
  5. That "I'm going to Kings Island!" thing is hilarious!
  6. What a douchebag. Don will have to fix that when he gets back. What is Paul Bunyan land?
  7. The Sandusky thing on Italian Job was a photoshop. Several people including myself were up at the park that day it was alledged to have been taken - and it still said Los Angeles. It is still a job well done though. That Clockster guy from PKIC did it.
  8. Wow... The Gay Fuel one was hilarious. I don't really get the Michael Jackson one. Has anybody seen Monster Spinnaz?
  9. Yes Beast is amazing now! You can see all the new wood on it. They have really done great with it! I used to hate it - and now it is a must ride! :D
  10. A TopScan would be badass - but its so hard to explain. It is like sitting on a propeller attached to a fan attached to an arm. The propeller blades roll so youre flipping - then the fan spins so you're going around in a circle while flipping. Then the arm with the fan attached to one end of it moves around in a circular pattern up and down in the air so it is like totally disorienting. I hope to ride one next season maybe - at Lagoon.
  11. I am betting it is a new games thing. Give it a shot - give it a try...
  12. Unless you go on that leet TPR trip and end up going to the park anyway.
  13. I would - but I will be at Cedar Point.
  14. I think Intamin should retrack it. Gravity Group track wouldn't be any better than what it has now - and I hear it doesn't age well. Also - PTC trains would be torn apart by the forces... Intamin track on the other hand is very solid and would work great. Additionally the trains are trailered, and are better designed for these forces. You would have a steel coaster smooth SOB ride with Intamin.
  15. Yeah... 6 weeks of downtime - for state inspectors to go over the ride. That means its not going to reopen this year. After they go over the ride for 6 weeks - Kings Island will undoubtedly put alot of work beyond what is required by the state - to make it extra safe. So it will probably reopen next season - if at all.
  16. They also needed parts from our King Cobra to fix Shockwave and Skyrider.
  17. Are those supposed to be difficult questions? :lol:
  18. OK - this one's done... :laserbeam:
  19. Right now males cannot have hair longer than 2 inches. Many do though...
  20. Thanks to the uniforms - the Smurfs shall return to PKI next year.
  21. They have brought back greeters, increased floor staffing on several roller coasters, and started a new ultra strict enforcement of wardrobe and time and attendence policies. Things they let slide before - or didn't really care about - are really getting scrutiny now.
  22. They have made sweeping changes to operations already.
  23. How late was the park opened? It was supposed to close at 10.
  24. The block brakes before the loop on Son of Beast can setup if the block ahead of it is not free. If they were doing something in the station that required holding the other train in the ready brakes - it would have set up on the block brake. The block brake can also be set by pushing a button in on the console, manually stopping the train. Regardless - there are no Vortex parts in that field. There is King Cobra track and Scooby Doo Ghoster Coaster parts. All of the Vortex parts are currently being used - on Vortex.
