  1. http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1015285&pg=personal&fr_id=1371 All Signed up at Cedar Point this year! My 4th year coasting!
  2. Cedar. Point. Just saying! Coasting for Kids would feel a little different without my riding partner in fun! I'll be signing up there very soon....maybe tomorrow. I want to stick to the park closest to home this year, so I'm not far from my new baby girl! Please text me after you sign up. I've been busy with work, that I keep forgetting to sign up. haha.
  3. Great report Andy! Banshee Bash was an awesome day! And after seeing your photos, I still can't believe I spent 16hrs there and missed a lot of stuff. Guess that means I have to go back huh?
  4. 1. Do you have your videos set to auto-play on your: a. desktop computer and/or b. mobile device? (or if you don't know, just tell us if the videos auto-play or not in your newsfeed.) I do not have videos set to auto play. This can also answer question 6. Auto play annoys the hell out of me. See question 6 for why. 2. Do you regularly "share" content from Facebook "page" (like the TPR page) to your own personal Facebook page? And have you shared something from the TPR page? It depends. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I've been sharing less recently, mainly because I do have a lot of roller coaster friends already, and they've shared it multiple times, I don't want to so to speak over saturate my newsfeed with something. But if it's something I did or am doing and TPR posts it, I'll share it along the lines of Hey, I've been here, it's a cool place, or this ride was OMG amazing. 3. What kind of content are you most likely to share? (Videos, Photos, News Stories, etc?) I share the POV videos, I'd share some photos of rides if they are unique. 4. How long on average do you watch a video posted to Facebook for? Do you watch the entire video? First 30 seconds? Until you get bored? Generally watch the whole video, unless it's something that I'm not into, then I'll stop it. 5. How important are "video thumbnails" to you? (the image you see with the > Play icon before you click to watch a video) Half the time I don't notice what it is. As long as I know what ride it is by the description, thumbnail doesn't matter to me. 6. What do you like/dislike about Facebook? What features do you use the most and which ones annoy you? Auto playing of videos. There are times, when I'm just scrolling and having a video play and at times with sound, isn't cool. If I want to watch a video, I'll press play. There are also times where I'm somewhere quick checking something and a video starts playing and I'm not in a place for video watching. 7. Is there anything that TPR does or doesn't do on Facebook that you think we should be doing more/less of? I feel like you guys are getting a good grasp of the social media aspect of running a website. I'm sure there are always more or less or different things that can be done, but generally it's a trial and error until you feel like something has clicked.
  5. So where do I want to ride this year? I've done Dorney twice, and Kings Dominion once. I was thinking Carowinds, but I have plans on visiting there the weekend before C4K, so getting to Charlotte two weekends in a row is a bit tough. I know I'm participating, I just don't know where yet.
  6. Thanks for the update! Banshee Bash was a great time! It was a great first visit to Kings Island for me
  7. I need to get back to BGW. Last time I was there, I had fun, but it wasn't the greatest of times. Thanks for sharing!
  8. Great couple of updates Chad! Santa Cruz looks really nice! Must get out that way someday!
  9. A nice little package has arrived on my doorstep today. Low and behold my present arrived. Thank you Karen! (BTW, do you have a pet? my dog went crazy when I opened the gifts and he actively assisted me in opening the presents this year, which is odd b/c he hates wrapping paper, lol but it was greatly amusing none the less!) What do I have here? A helper named Frankie wants to help TARDIS hat! Which Frankie wants to eat. The hat on! Chocolate blueberry stuff, that I can't wait to try! Because I love books, I was gifted an old edition of The Queen's Cross. It looks interesting, can't wait to read it. Frankie deciding to take all the wrapping paper and shredding it into tiny little pieces. He still wasn't satisfied that the wrapping paper was shredded enough. PS- just dug into the chocolate, OMG delicious!
  10. Just posting that I have not received anything yet. Mailman is aware stuff should be on the way. Will post ASAP when a gift does arrive.
  11. Worlds of Fun looks like a nice park. I'm not a haunt person, but it does look like they do a nice job.
  12. The first year of our gift exchange on here my secret Santa never revealed themselves. I still have no idea who it was. I always reveal myself in case of shipping/mailing issues. And yay I'm glad to see people posting awesome stuff! Lastly, feel better Stacy!
  13. According to my tracking # my giftees gift(s) have arrived at their destination!
  14. I mailed mine out yesterday. According to the delivery confirmation, it's on it's way to its final destination, and should be there by Saturday. (though it is the post office, so who knows... )
  15. I loved the one they have out in Vegas, and I too had a person who died at sea. I think it hit home when you saw all those names on the list just how massive the whole thing was. Great report Robb! Looks like the Orlando one is just as awesome as other versions!
  16. My gifts will be mailed out to my giftee this week. Hopefully tomorrow since I have off work. Looking forward to seeing what everyone gets this year!
  17. Gifts for my secret santa have been ordered. I know most will arrive to my place before the Dec. 5 ship date. There is one that the shipping says later than the 5th. I'm hoping it's all there so I can send together if not, I'll send in parts.
  18. Count me in for loving the pictures everyone posts of their stuff! Ok for me, I'm also a fellow Whovian and enjoy DW (there are some new DW books out) and I love all 3 NCIS franchises, and The Big Bang Theory. In general,I'm a book lover (I read all but horror), and I enjoy traveling as well. Over the years I've gotten some awesome and random stuff, so I look forward to whatever I get!
  19. Great report! Now I'm hungry for pizza and want to go on a Scott's Pizza tour again.
  20. nice report Chuck! While I didn't join you guys at Coney this year, I did go up and pretty much had the same opinion on Thunderbolt. That ride has so much potential. Didn't check out Spook-o-Rama this summer, I guess that just means I have to go back and check it out next year.
  21. 1. How do you most often watch videos? (DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital Download, Streaming.) Streaming, DVD, Blu-Ray 2. What streaming services do you use the most? Netflix, Hulu plus 3. How many DVDs or Blu-Rays do you buy a year on average? 5 at most 4. Do you use a device like Apple TV, Roku, or Chromecast? No devices used 5. How much do you watch videos on YouTube versus all the mediums listed in the poll? Short videos YouTube (aka coaster vids), everything else is Netflix, or if I really want it but no Netflix, a digital download.
