  1. No, alcohol was NOT and is NOT permitted in line at Cedar Point or Geauga Lake. If you see people in line with an alcoholic beverage it's only because they're ignorant and we (Geauga Lake) are short staffed resulting in absolutely no line greeters in the entire park. It's infuriating when a guest tries to argue with you by saying they didn't see a "no beer sign" out front resulting in them taking it out on us. You don't see a "no fire arms" sign out front either; it's common sense jackass! When caught with an alchoholic beverage we are to direct them out of the line to the midway where the
  2. Wait :huh: Wouldn't it cost more to license Rush Hour from New Line and The Cave from Sony then it would to get The Italian Job and Tomb Raider from Paramount? That doesn't make sense, especially if they have ten years on it. Correct, but Adventure Express was marketed as being heavily inspired by Indiana Jones ;) So inspired by Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, they even had the Indiana Jones theme playing in the station, that all they needed was the name to make it official!
  3. I don't hate Top Gun, I just think The Italian Job is better :rolleyes: I think The Italian Job should've replaced it instead of two superior attractions!

    ^That's where The Italian Job Stunt Track should've gone <_< With the entrance facing the water tower. It's makes way more sense then it's current location!
  5. Does anybody know why PKI de-themed The Krusty Krab Snack Shack? Now it's a terribly cheap and bland looking building <_< IMO, it's the ugliest thing in Nick Universe and would better fit the Sponge Bob theming as the Krust Krab once again. They could've replaced the old Sponge Bob figure, that used to be on top, with a Mr. Krabs! It makes sense that they would move the Sponge Bob figure down to where he is more noticable, and that they would take down the Patrick and Squidward wooden cutouts now that they have real figures, but why did they tear down the Krusty Krab theming? An
  6. Thanks for the pics ;) Looks great!
  7. I have a feeling that Blue's Skidoo will surprise everybody :rolleyes: It's Disney's Dumbo, only your riding on Blue and Magenta around Blue's House, instead of Dumbo around a hot air balloon. IMO, it defiantly qualifies as highly themed! Also, I have a feeling Sponge Bob is in the middle of receiving a face lift as we speak ;) His belt, pupils, and eye lashes still need to receive their black paint and his spatula is in the middle of it's retheme/paint! I only hope they don't leave the platform that Sponge Bob now stands on so bland. Same goes for the recently de-themed Krusty Krab Snack
  8. What are they doing to the Krusty Krab Snack Shack :huh: All the bricking is now exposed. Where's the mini Krusty Krab exterior with the infamous shell sign, the wooden cutouts of Patrick and Squidward overlooking guests, and most importantly, the GIANT 3D Sponge Bob figure? Could Plankton's moving in have somthing to do with this...
  9. All the Paramount Parks High Resolution Park Maps are now up! Too bad ours has such poor quality on the actual map and logos :unsure: At least we now know for sure that Atom Ant's Airways will be rethemed to Timmy's Air Tours, and not Tommy's Air Tours as many have speculated (including myself)! My guess is the new green paint job will represent Cosmo.
  10. ^Yeah, me too ;) The only videos I care to watch are from events, tours, attraction openings, and Kings Island historical footage. A massive photo update isn't necessary, as you have a pretty extensive collection already, but more couldn't hurt. Now on the other hand, a massive photo update and video walkthrough of Nickelodon Universe on Opening Day would be great B) Maybe just a giant Opening Day media update (with commentary) covering Nickelodeon Universe, The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera, and other PKI happenings would also be very cool! Also, some more of those IslandView pic
  11. ***UPDATE*** OK, now I present the final piece of the puzzle...A PRESS RELEASE B) Also, judging by the poster presented with the press release, I'd venture to say Universal Studios sold the rights to distribute The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera to SimEx!Iwerks. If this is the case, then we may see it start poping up all over the place in the near future. New Hanna Barbera Attraction Debuts at Paramount's Kings Dominion Theme park adventure rockets guests through The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera. DOSWELL, Va.—Classic animated characters from cartoons such as The Flints
  12. Looks like Avatar: The Last Airbender won't be the first-of-its kind family roller coaster as the Nickelodeon Universe press release originally claimed. Click the image below for more info and construction photos: Survivor: The Ride goes up at Paramount's Great America. Photo courtesy of Screamscape.com As you can see, Survivor: The Ride at Paramount's Great America, will also contain the hump that was to make our Disk'O first-of-its kind. Oh well, I guess we'll get all the claim anyway, just like we did for Flight of Fear and The Italian Job. Go ahead and just check out the constr
  13. WOW :o This is almost as disappointing as Cedar Point and Geauga Lake's 2006 plans! The only thing saving it is The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera ;) The park map looks incredibly bad and is a step back from last years. Citigraph should take a hint from the people who made PCW's as it's a far better layout and design. One thing you notice is how large Avatar is :rolleyes: It looks like there will be a path under the hump. From what I can tell, the water maze will stay but with a SpongeBob theme and Plankton's drop tower will be placed in front of it! The Danny Phantom Flyer's will be loc
  14. Thanks for the "High Quality" update PKIDelirium :thumbsup: Looks like alot of the work being done in Nick Universe will be underground and unseen by the average guest.
  15. I have a question: Does anyone know why they still use film projectors and don't just upgrade to digital projectors that use files :huh: It's ridiculous, just like how The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman (IOA) has all this expensive equipment, that's energy consuming and hard to maintain, just to keep the film dust free so the 3D works properly; when The Curse of DarKastle (BGW) just uses these extremely "tiny" memory cards. It's so much easier, and less costly just to upgrade to all digital, which even gives you a better picture quality. Then again, I doubt PKI has any of the expensive
  16. Your right, The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera "officially" opened with the park on June 7th, 1990, but the date I included was the film completion date ;) It was ready for USF's pre-opening.
  17. I can guarantee that everyone will love The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera (it's now my favorite attraction at PKI)! It's far better than SpongeBob SquarePants 3D in animation, story, and overall fun factor B) The preshow area may need a few modifications, as the original at USF had two smaller projected screens, and one larger one. The preshow for The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera is very enjoyable, and actually advances the story, unlike SpongeBob SquarePants 3D's completly pointless one <_< Although, I'm not sure how much theming PKI will actually incorporate back into the
  18. Thanks for the MASSIVE site update and photo update PKIDelirium ;) Your doing a fine job of running this great site and the fact that just keeps improving deserves a round-of-applause! You strive to make this site the best it can be and it shows in the quality of EPKI.com :thumbsup: Keep up the good work and take it easy!
  19. ^I'd rather we be sold then owned another second by a company that doesn't want us around and only finds us a nuisance <_< I agree with you King on both things; this is great for the park and I'd love to see a JP ride where Top Gun or Son of Beast currently resides ;) The only way this could turn out bad is if we're bought by Six Flags or Cedar Fair and in all honestly, I'm rooting for Universal or an Private Investment Group (most likely canidate) to pick us up! Either way, if someone is willing to cough up a billion dollars for Paramount Parks then they've got to care for them more
  20. While I've never fallen asleep on the IJST, it's not that boring, I do agree it sucked (in theming and thrill). Oh well, no use complaining about it now, although some of the older folks seemed to enjoy it (which is good since there isn't much around for them and it replaced two senior-compatable rides) :lol: Every attraction has an audience, no matter how small, and it's important to appeal to all age groups or else it wouldn't be a family park (and that's what makes PKI works so swell)! If I had to guess of what was to replace Vortex, if it goes, then the only thing that comes to mind is
  21. I thought it was midnight, not 11 o'clock :lol: Looks like I wasn't alone! WE DID IT :insane: Congrats PKIDelirium on the great site that just keeps getting greater :thumbsup: The growing community is a result of that and you should be proud! Thankyou everyone who participated.
  22. While their at it they could scrap the preshow movie and replace it with an animatronic or live actor, similar to Poseidon's Fury at IOA, to give us an actual story to follow; making it more interesting :lol: They could have either Laura lead you into the next room showcasing there newest find, or they could have another archeologist who was with Laura exploring but really just wants to find her and get out (exactly like Poseidon's Fury if you know what I mean) in which he eventually finds her after soon learning her whereabouts and the means by which they have to escape! In all this I'd
  23. I hear ya :lol: Ditto to all the above except what TRTR AE AWESOME said <_< Nobody touches my FOF! Just about the only thing left to say is that I'd fix up the parking lot by re-paving/painting it and adding landscaping, re-organizing it for a new layout, with the tramsystem re-incorporated back into it, only better ;) I'd also fix up the entrance to be beautifully landscaped with bricking and design for paths with the overall look and feel of the Japanese Paramount Park's entrance, even incorporating a similar fountain like the one seen in the concept art. Our current parking lot, even
  24. WOW, if people still don't know what PGA's getting next year after that comment then they must live in a pineapple under the sea :P As Carl Denham would say in this kind of situation: "It makes me sore to know they'd do something like that to me." Aren't we supposed to have the superior Nick expansion? IMO, that ride belongs in a Universe, not Central <_< I guess they do kind of deserve something like this after all they've been through and that rumored Survivor flat ride would've just been cruel! Happy Holidays everyone :santahat:
  25. Thanks for the pics, it looks cool ;) I have a question though: Isn't The Beastie supposed to be rethemed to The Fairly-Odd Coaster next year? If so, that would make this "holiday version" a soon to be rare/hard-to-find 1st issue version :rolleyes: PKI needs to think ahead sometimes, oh well. Can't wait to snag one for myself!
