  1. not to mention money. Both events bring in money, and I'm willing to bet that neither park cares too much who's putting the event on as long as there is something in it for them...
  2. While the stats are correct....and kinda interesting...but really? Is it necessary to throw politics into everything?

    CP haunted asylum angers mental health advocates

    They have a point, and I can see where they are coming from...However, do these same people write every movie store in the country and ask them to pull every psycho-slasher horror movie off the shelves?

    Disney and their Problems

    You have to remember Disney is a huuuuuge company, unlike somewhere like Kings Island where the accidents happen in one park, Disney has property and attractions all over the world, so the number of accidents would be proportionally larger. Plus, many of those accidents listed were not the parks fault, they could be guests with pre-existing conditions, or just plain dumb people doing things they shouldn't be. Some look to be freak accidents, where only a few can be blamed on the company itself.

    New official KI website on the way

    I hope we get some POV's a la Cedar Point, they make the off season easier...

    This vs that

    Jug ftw, it's "chocolat-ier"...except Nesquick leaves you with that wonderful chocolate sludge at the bottom of the glass... Fender or Gibson?

    This vs that

    Fries with an accidental onion ring mixed in! There's nothing better than getting fries at a place that also sells onion rings and getting a stray... Ketchup or Mustard?

    What if The Bat never existed?

    To take this one step further...If KI didn't exist in general. For one thing, we all would be very bored. Also it's quite possible that coasters as we know them wouldn't exist at all. The Racer is widely credited as re-energizing the then dying coaster. But anyway, on topic... That's a good question, I'm sure someone would have eventually built something similar, but possibly without some of the problems The Bat had.

    Flight Deck

    Don't forget Iron Dragon at Cedar Point...although I wouldn't put them in the same league...
  10. http://www.cplerr.com/ I stumbled across this website this morning, and got to poking around. I've never seen it mentioned, so I thought I'd share. It has tons of really interesting information, and neat pictures from construction to the the present. As is the case with a lot of sites "off the beaten path," it doesn't seem to be updated often, but what is there is great stuff.
  11. I was really disappointed when that project fell through, I live fairly close to it and it would have been nice to have a park nearby. Here is the link to an older website with some pictures of early development before it halted, basically just a big overgrown field... Garfield Park

    Upcoming Coney Mall Addition?

    Not always, there are some decent flat rides out there too.^ Remember, parks are out to make money, they'll go for the most economical choice that brings the most people, and more importantly their money, into the park. My question is if they do put in one or two small classic flat rides, how would you market that? Especially so soon after Diamondback? Basically everything I can think of makes it sound like "Come ride some rides you can ride at the county fair!!!"...Don't get me wrong, I'm all for some ferris wheel/tilt a whirl action, but I think if that becomes a reality, it will be coupled with something slightly bigger as those alone wouldn't be the big enough draw that KI is looking for...

    Upcoming Coney Mall Addition?

    I'm all for connecting that path that goes beyond Vortex to anything ^_^ it's just such an awkward area, like it was supposed to go somewhere but someone changed their mind.

    Vortex getting fresh paint for 2009

    I wondered why half of Firehawk looked good while the areas closest to the FOF building looked kinda ratty...now I know.

    April 19 - Private Event

    I would ride water rides if i didn't get wet. :lol: I hate squishing through the park for the rest of the day, and my clothes sticking to me and everything else, ugh.
