    Which came first the turtle or the donkey?
  1. How would this realistically work? Are they going to attach some laser guns in the trains? Seriously I want to know where you're coming from or if this is just some imaginary fantasy because this makes no sense and they're not going to add 60+ seconds to the cycle time spent in a shed. While I don't think there will be a laser attachment, I do think the "shed' section will be a decent amount of time. Maybe up to a minute. If they're using the shed as a block to get 3 trains, there are a couple ways the ride could be blocked but this would be the main idea: train in station, train on lift,
  2. They are only open 2 Saturdays in September anyways so you need to check the UofL schedule and KK. But Go Cats I guess I should rephrase my question. I checked the KK schedule when FSU's schedule was first released and the park was open. Now they are not. I'm just curious if this is because someone rented the park out or if they just always close during UL big games? I can't imagine that they would need to be closed during those games. The portion of the parking lot used for tailgating isn't anywhere near the portion used for KK. There are plenty of gates on Crittenden/Preston for ta

  4. For those that don't know, GCI's engineering office is located in Northern Kentucky. So, geographically, it's in their "backyard" as well. I hope this is a GCI as it would be neat to have one closer to me.
  5. Wow! That's critical info! Thanks! Only problem now is that KK hasn't decided on their operating hours for that week (they wing it, apparently), whereas HW opens at 10am. Are you trying to visit and do both during the week of the Kentucky State Fair? I'm no expert on crowds that week because I stay as far away from the Expo Center as possible during that time, but just know KK crowd/traffic levels will definitely be elevated; especially on the weekend during that period.
  6. Universal has said that the new coaster would provide a smoother ride experience!! So I'm hoping/thinking they smoothed out some of the coaster. I'm confused by what you all mean by "smoothened." Were there parts of the ride you thought needed to be reprofiled or are you just talking about the general rattling that occurred in the years prior to this construction? I visited IOA in October of 1999 and Hulk was smooth as glass. Over the following 15+ years though, the ride became much more "bumpy." The Florida sun, humidity, and full capacity ridership take a major toll on rides and I t
  7. Given the amount of time you have, I wouldn't recommend going too far from the city. You can do a tram tour of the Mega Cavern which is a system of manmade caves that has had many purposes over the years. Also, they have ziplines and a ropes course inside the cavern if you're interested in such things. The Louisville Zoo is also close to the airport and is a good way to kill a few hours. You can always head downtown and take in a museum of your choosing (Louisville Slugger, Muhammad Ali Center, Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, Children's Museum, etc.). If you are looking for anything in
  8. I'm assuming this isn't sarcasm, but if it is, please disregard what follows. I'm all for giving under-appreciated portions of a coaster their due, but that pre-lift is about as nondescript as any I've seen. This isn't a shot at the design of the coaster by any means, but let's not go overboard on the RMC praise. There are hundreds of coasters with a pre-lift section nearly identical to that of Storm Chaser. Of all things under-appreciated on this ride, I think the hill prior to the double down is unbelievably cool. The quick roll to the left followed by the slow unrolling looks amazi
  9. The entrance will connect beyond where Mile High Falls is located. There is a "Midway" (using that term VERY lightly), back in that area by Mile High Falls' exit and Thunder Run's turnaround, where the entrance plaza will be. I hope that someday they will add some more flat rides in that area, as well as the area inhabited by Top Fuel Dragsters, in order to fill some of the gaps between the major thrill rides. The walk between Thunder Run and the Rapids ride is so long with nothing to do; it could use some filling in. I believe the walkway behind TR and where the dragsters where wil

  11. What outside bank are you referring to? There was no outside bank in the section shown in the 4 pictures posted above, from what I've seen.
  12. If indoor quick service counters are too intimidating, how on earth did that guy ever eat a McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, etc? All of them require entry into the building unless going through the drive-thru. There's no possible way that could be an excuse. You're discussing 2 completely different scenarios. Movement and comfortability inside a park are completely different than the same outside a park. People base their choices on familiarity and if ordering inside at an amusement isn't familiar, they may avoid it altogether.
  13. Are you kidding??? Magic Kingdom used to get so much grief because quick-serve was pretty much ALL they had for the longest time... - Casey's Corner - Columbia Harbor House - Cosmic Ray's - Gaston's Tavern - Pecos Bill - Village Haus - Sleepy Hollow - Friar's Nook - Lunching Pad - Tortuga Tavern And that doesn't even include many smaller kiosks or even Be Our Guest, which is also a quick-serve during the day, but harder to get into. I mean, with all that, Really??? You couldn't find quick-service food options in the park!?!??! What I've found is that people that may be
  14. OR...like every other coaster with an unbanked turn after the station. Seriously, this isn't a new thing. But.............. It's an unbanked turn by RMC... it's going to BLOW MINDS!!! I kid, I kid.
