  1. My opinion comes from experience. I've been going to KI for a very long time.


    I've got some years under my belt too. I actually remember the swaying of the Demon steps as I climbed up and the entire Bat debacle. Do you remember the Top Gun crash? That was my first year working that ride and ended up working King Cobra until TG opened back up. I'm sure your plan works just fine but I was giving another point of view for him to consider. I'm sure either way it will be a great day because KI operations are overall good.

  2. I repectfully disagree with that entire post. On a busy day you need to get to the slowest lines first. At rope drop I advise going straight back to Firehawk and then Flight of Fear. Those lines are the slowest in the parks and could be over an hour wait by noon. After that Stunt Coaster is a slow line so I would head over there. After that most lines move quickly except invertigo but that is at the other end of the park and requires a long walk while taking you away from most of the good coasters. Vortex, Diamondback and Banshee are people eaters. Racer usually does better after noon when they open up the second side and Adventure Express full line is only 20 minutes. The Bat rarely gets long lines.


    The big take away is getting Firehawk first thing because it is a slow painful line.

  3. I am sure it is a long shot but I just ran across your video on Facebook but it was a Diply or something like that Facebook page. They gave you credit. I feel that video is very popular and was wondering if know if Jacob has seen this video of him and has he ever been in contact with you about it since it was posted so many years ago?

  4. My kids and I will be going to the park on June 22. Any recs on a hotel nearby the park? I was hoping to stay at La Quinta but that week they jack the price up. We will be headed in on I 64 East to Richmond. So I was thinking just north of the 295 and 95 intersection. I would like something close so I can leave my wife and 3 year old in hotel after dinner while I knock out some 54" rides on June 21 with my older kids. Any thoughts? Thanks.

  5. Remember the good old days when Adventure Express and Racer were 44" height requirements. I talked to a lady who worked in GR the year it went from 44" to 48" and she said there was lots of madness since their 44" child didn't grow 4" in a year. They could no longer ride a coaster they were tall enough the previous year.


    I have 5 kids and height requirements are so inconsistent. Camden Park's Big Dipper launched my kid on that first drop and there really wasn't an enforced height limit. It was awesome. Some Wild Mouse coasters are 42" some 44" some 46" and a very few 48". Same thing with White Water Canyon rides. KI is actually one of the more strict heights at 46". Many are 42" or 44". I could go on all day about height issues. Another item that is upsetting is the two height stations at KI are not the same. The one in the front with the swinging arm is the best. I found that most of the measuring station at the rides are taller than the station in the front. White Water is almost an inch difference and that is a bummer when you don't get the 46" bracelet from the front. It is a long round trip walk back to get the bracelet.

  6. I went to the park for the first time on Tuesday. I really enjoyed my experience and the lady sold me a Fast Track for X for 1 pound because of some reason I didn't quite understand. I thought it was worth that to skip the 40 minute line. Glad I didn't wait in line for it but I knew from advice on here that it wasn't worth the wait. I thought the coaster line up is above average and I like the fast track system because the unlimited option or the a la carte option. I actually went A la carte and saved a couple pounds. Also on X, I was fortunate to be in line near a group of 3 so I could get a partner to ride with because I didn't know I needed a partner until I walked up to the ride and read the sign. This was my first visit to a park outside of North America.

  7. Going to the park for the first time next Tuesday. I was going to get the Fast Track for "the big 5". I would like to ride the rides twice. How do these things work? Can I get two sets for myself? Each set cost 30 and the unlimited cost 80. I don't really need more than 2 rides on each so the unlimited is unnecessary since I generally don't ride flats. Any advice on this or anything about the park? How long does the line for X get since that is not on the Fast Track "big 5" package? This is my first European park.

  8. I am Midwest guy headed to LA for the first time and I am staying downtown. Car rentals are expensive and I saw Uber will be about $25 but is the park in an area where I could get Uber back to my hotel? I know nothing about the area and nothing about the park besides it has a lot of coasters. My plan is the platinum Flash Pass. Any other tips would be appreciated. Would it be better for me to go to a park closer to downtown? Thanks.

  9. Popped into the park today. I took Uber for the first time. That was awesome deal because my hotel was in Southpark and I only paid $12 to get there. The park was empty except 186 ACE members. Fury was a great ride. The highlight was the Craft beer stand in the Taste of Carolina section. Only 4 tokens(just under $6) for a beer which I thought was a good deal in a park where a funnel cake cost $10.
