Hoping this isnt true (never been to a media day event if i was able to go) but rumor going around on KIC is that coaster groups (TPR, ACE, you get the point.....) wont be able to come to Timbers media day............... I really hope this isnt true.

Is there a story I missed?

I've been wondering for awhile now if the "golden age" of coaster groups will slip away... Some parks still bend over backwards to cater to enthusiasts during events, but how much do they get back from that? Some of us leave them good reviews and give them some minor publicity, but I know its a hassle, and there's always something or someone that makes the group look bad somehow.

Nothing specific, just there were way more coaster nerds than actual media. It couldn't have been cheap to feed us all breakfast and lunch. Plus the "entitled" attitude of many enthusiasts I'm sure didn't sit too well. I'd expect a casting call to fill seats for future media days, and that's about it.

Hey y'all, happy new years!

Quick question please, I'm in very early stages of planning a Spring Break trip for the family up to KI and possibly Kentucky Kingdom and after looking on the KI website the 2017 dates/hours isn't posted yet?

Can anyone tell me if historically KI has been open the week of April 10-14 or on either side of the weekend.

Thanks so much, will be our first time there, really looking forward to it.

I think they usually open the weekend after. If I had to guess I'd say they are going to open the 22nd

Opening day is on the 15th which means the pass preview night should be on the 14th.
