  1. I'm debating whether or not to stop reading awesome Kings Island reports such as this as I'm planning my first trip for Haunt 2022. But your misfortunes (vomit lady on plane, vomit kid on Racer) are too amusing to skip, dammit!
  2. Twisted Timbers at Kings Dominion a little over a week ago in light rain. Wow, that stings.
  3. Way too early planning a trip out to the park on Saturday September 25. Primary concern is new credits since last visit in 2009. All questions assume pre-Covid standards. Does Fright Fest usually start by this time? No dates currently set, but auditions are scheduled for FF. Is FF a separate-ticket event? Read: do they kick out the day guests and re-open an hour later for FF? Are any major coasters excluded during the event? Which Flash Pass level is recommended? I'm assuming Platinum.
  4. Richard Donner, 91, died on July 5. Unreleased cause of death. Known for directing The Omen, Superman, The Goonies, and the Lethal Weapon franchise.
  5. Apollo's Chariot at BGW while the park's firework show was going on.
  6. Finally got a picture of my Happy Death Day killer cosplay on my birthday.
  7. I realized we haven't had a Ju(i)cy Lucy in this thread yet. For those unaware, this burger is a Minneapolis creation that puts cheese on the INSIDE of the burger patty. The exterior of the one I had tonight. And since I forgot to take a cross-section when I first got it like a total idiot, here it is nearly gone, the interior cheese still visible.
  8. I bought a car with a 72 month lease in October 2019. Due to COVID, my federal student loans were placed in forbearance. I used the money that would have gone into my student loans towards my car payments. I submitted the last payment today. On my birthday.
  9. I'm getting ready for my first visit to the park next week and I think my biggest question at this point is: Twisted Timber's loose article policy. AKA, if I have a phone/keys/wallet in a zippered pocket, will I still need to get a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo? Will I be able to sit on/attach a hat to my belt?
  10. It might not be the most recent, but I love it enough to share. 13 horror-themed Funko pocket POP! figures.
  11. I've found this to be an old argument used mostly by anti-maskers to avoid wearing masks at parks. Bottom line: if you wear your mask correctly, it'll stay on your face. Also speaking from experience of 4 days at parks in November with masks.
  12. I have reservations for Monday, July 5th and Wednesday, July 7th for the park. Since the 5th is when most people get off for the 4th, I'm obviously planning on unlimited quick queue for that day. So the question is: if I buy in advance and for whatever reason, the park ends up being absolutely dead/lines are non-existent; will I be able to get a refund? Alternatively, how likely is it to sell out in park day of? And since I'm here, what is recommended for late-night bites in the area after park close? Or should I just plan on food at my lodgings?
  13. Yay! Celtic Fyre is returning in time for my visit! Hopefully all rides will be open on weekdays by then as well. Not holding out too much hope for Pantheon, though.
  14. Regarding Valleyfair's Larson model, and I'm speaking from experience as I have operated the attraction, don't know if it's even possible to snap the cables to the point where we didn't train the new ops on what to do if cables were snapped.
