  1. My wife just passed this along to me a few minutes ago. Apparently, after 94 years it's all over for IB. https://www.wthr.com/article/indiana-beach-close-after-94-years
  2. Great trip report! I love Kenucky Kingdom, and I was hoping to make it down for Halloscream, but it won't be happening this season. Looked like fun though.
  3. July can't get here quick enough! Can't wait for Copperhead Strike, and more Afterburn and Fury!
  4. I believe I heard the whole ride is 17 seconds...with 5 inversions, (according to RCDB). That's going to be pretty crazy!

  6. I'd try to get your rides in during the day, (presuming you're going all day). If it's like all the other Saturdays so far, it'll be crazy once the Haunt starts. We've found it somewhat easy to get in the haunts on Saturdays, the rides, not so much.
  7. Any lack of actors in the haunts could be simply due to people not showing up for work. When I worked Cornstalkers, we would often have to give up 3-4 of our people to other, more popular haunts. Also, I'm really hoping the popularity of Pumpkin Eater will eventually lead to KI getting the full haunt of it from Knotts...the would be awesome.
  8. When we were at CP the decorations and theming were better than the haunts, with the exception of Slaughterhouse & Cornstalkers. Cornstalkers being the best by a mile. Their scareactors were weak compared to KI's.
  9. It hasn't been the best year...but I thought it was pretty good myself. I want to give C.H.A.O.S another try before I rate it, (It was opening night), and now they should've had plenty of time to work out the bugs, and get their timing down more. I thought the two new scarezones, Coney Maul & Pumpkin Eater were great. And they were getting us at every turn in Slaughterhouse. Next trip, Madame Fatale's is first up...heard they're doing it Blackout style with flashlights, (hopefully, the Gantom Torches).
  10. Like Jedimaster had pointed out, the only HH attraction that it seems to fit is Backwoods Bayou. But the timing just seemed weird...putting up new ads 3 weeks into the Haunt, when it's only a 6 week event. But it is strange anyway.
  11. I just had this come up on my phone a few minutes ago. Anybody know what "The Swamp" is all about?
  12. I would love to see CP take out Snake River Falls, and use the land behind it, if needed, to install a really extensive log flume-type ride like Chiapa's (Phantasialand). Of course, moderately themed...after all this CF
  13. I'm asking my coaster bretheren for a little help. We are looking at two different options for a long weekend in early October. We have our CF Platinum so were looking at: Valleyfair & Mall Of America or Dorney & Knoebel's ...What would be our better option?
  14. I know I'm never very vocal here on TPR anymore, but I'm still here, and some day I will be on a TPR European Tour. Financially it just never works out at this point...but when it finally does I'll ONLY go with TPR.
  15. It will be much easier for me to list the "Parks" on a bucket list, rather than the coasters I want to ride. So, here goes... 1. Phantasialand 2. Alton Towers 3. Blackpool Pleasure Beach 4. Liseberg 5. Thorpe Park 6. Efteling 7. Toverland 8. Europa Park 9. Tivoli Gardens 10. Port Aventura Park ...And there a lot more, but these are the ones I dream about visiting the most.
  16. I thought Pilgrim's Plunge/Giraffica was a great ride...when it was open! It was just a maintenance nightmare.
  17. I have to go back to the dark ride I haven't ridden since 2006...and that would be Curse Of Darkastle @ Busch Gardens Williamsburg. I've ridden a lot of others in the past 11-12 years but this one has always stuck with me. I hope the rumors of it closing aren't true, but if they are, I'm glad I got to ride it.
  18. The Bat - Kings Island (The original, not the renamed Top Gun/Flight Deck)
  19. Cobra's Curse Cheetah Hunt Kumba Sheikra Montu Maverick Valravn Banshee Diamondback Mystic Timbers
  20. I dream of the day I will finally be able to afford to go to Europe and go to Phantasialand, (as well as, other awesome parks over there). These pics just encourage me all the more to get over there...what a beautiful place!
  21. We get our passes for Christmas each year from the inlaws, and they get us gold passes through KI. We want to upgrade to platinum and pay the difference...should there be any problem? I would think not, but just trying to find out for sure.
  22. Theme parks of Europe. Phantasialand, Europa, Alton, ect. Japan and Australia are in there too.
  23. Despite the problems with Air Race, I'm kind've glad we didn't end up going to Fun Spot back in 2012. Now we have a ton more reasons to go back this time. Can't wait!
  24. In 2006 when we were at Kings Dominion and were riding Grizzly. We heard a pop on the lifthill...train stopped...when it restarted the train felt like we were riding on an angle. The rest of the ride was rough, but from what I understood, that was fairly normal. Right after we got off they shut the ride down for the rest of the day, to my knowledge anyway.
