    Yeah, It's almost as if we never hear about a mass shooting at least twice a month or how we have an increase sense of no regard for anyone's safety as the days go by.  Heck, we are lucky to even have people willing to work at theme parks lately due to the stress they receive.  No matter how much you don't want to see it, it is dangerous and scary out there in the world.

    That's a terrible way to live. You'll absolutely never convince me that someone who works in a ride operator capacity is exposed to anything but mild stress. I can only imagine what would happen if an actual emergency took place. That's who is in charge of your safety.

    Busy stress? Sure. Mild.

    Real fight or flight stress? Nah.

    My mind goes to the Intamin Drop Tower incident where instead of hitting the emergency stop button, the ride operators ran away. How would someone who can't deal with the stress of an obnoxious guest trying to leave the spinning horses react when guests are in physical danger? This is a real concern.

    This is the opposite of a "thanks for keeping us safe" situation.

    Upon exiting the Raging Bull queue, there was a group of young people starting in with eachother, and then it got LOUD and physical.  They were blocking the exit of RB near the on-ride photo booth.  I was there with 2 friends and it took us a bit of hanging back and strategy just to get out of the mess.  Then it nearly followed us, bad times.  I'm a 6-1 grown adult man, and I was scared.

    How did you enjoy the new corporate premium experience?

    Thanks for the tips Bert!  I'm surprised a Dinn coaster is so well received.

    What do you think of Storm Chaser?  My #150 (Steel Vengeance) and #200 (Twisted Cyclone) were both RMCs, and I was thinking of keeping that trend going.

    Everything is fine, until you get to the last 3rd or so of the ride. It's just the typical RMC different angled airtime thrashing/bucking, but with mini hills that try to rip your legs off. It feels like the train is trying to throw you out, not in a good way. I would imagine it would be like bull riding if you were strapped to the bull.

    I saw go hard and make T3 your 250th. Joking, but not joking.

  4. Trying to figure out what was so 'well done' about the situation. It all sounded like something unnecessarily blown out of proportion. Fifteen minutes of sitting on a fiberglass horse and essentially being entertained by... almost nothing. Sounds annoying as hell.

    Meanwhile, the ride operator in charge of your safety can't handle the minimal amount of situational stress and has to be removed from operations.

    Unreal how fragile and easily shaken people are in 2022.

  5. One day will be plenty. KK is not a two day park. Not even if you include the water park.

    Get there at the opening. Ride Lightning Run a couple times. Go clockwise, finishing with Storm Chaser. It's in such an isolated part of the park I've never had anything but a station wait.

    Remember that you're an adult and skip the kiddie coaster, as to not weird out parents. (me) 

    Go back for whatever flats you want. When you realize it's a great park, but there's not much else you want to ride, go to the water park and enjoy a beer.

    Hit the road for HW the following morning. Be prepared for headaches and whiplash on 75% of the coasters. Try to lie to yourself and pretend they were good rides.

    Reride Turkey Shooters and Thunderbird as much as possible.

    Eat a cafeteria quality Thanksgiving dinner and talk about how great it is.

    Wait in line shirtless for an hour for the water coasters.

    Think about how much better of a one-day park KK is.

    Don't drink the sunscreen. 

    Edit: Also, don't forget to make fun of the clientele in your TR, because apparently it's the cool thing to do. Throw in a jab about Christianity and Trump voters.

  6. From what I recall, it's a nice looking park and well maintained. From memory, it would be a nice place to walk around and have a couple beers. But, there was no edginess to it and all of the rides left you wanting a lot more. I'm sure you'll have a good time and I definitely wouldn't pass it up.

    Take what I say with a grain of salt. I haven't been to Worlds of Fun since 2016. The new wave turn on Timer Wolf has been added since then, so I'm sure the park is much more exciting.
