  1. There is not a Cedar Fair park that is farther south than Carowinds.... You can maybe argue that Schlitterbahn is farther south... Or are you referring to parks farther south of CP and MiA? I know there were a few from Dorney that were trying to go down and help at Carowinds.
  2. The new hotels look great! Love the idea of adding solar panels. Wish more parks would realize the huge benefit to them!
  3. You can thank all the workers from other cedar fair parks for that!
  4. Thank you! The event was awesome! Their brews and bbq event is great event also. It was hard to get on rides, but i didnt feel like doing the walk of shame. Goal is to lose some weight so i can get back to riding!
  5. Made it out to Cedar Point this past weekend, October 17th-18th with my mom and dad to visit my sister working at the park. My sister works at Dorney, but since they closed early, a bunch of full timers and seasonal workers went out to help each weekend. Some have stayed out there since the end of September, other drive back and forth each weekend. Only did the park though on the 17th. The weather was absolutely gorgeous all day, clear sky's, very comfortable temperature. It was a great day to be at the park. Attendance wise, the park seemed pretty packed. Most coasters had between an hour to
  6. Looks like they are building a new bathroom and new pavilion. facebook post
  7. Cedar Point has more than likely started hiring back in December. I know Dorney Park has been hiring since December and have been doing phone interviews and Skype interviews since this whole thing started. Id imagine CP has been doing the same. When I worked for Cedar Fair as a ride-op, the ride operators still needed to cycle each ride a fairly large amount of times to make sure that the ride will function properly day to day under normal circumstances. I'm sure that maintenance needs to cycle rides their way as well, but what's that going to mean at a 2+ op ride/rides with more than o
  8. Thats usually not up to the general manager. They might have a say in some things, but not all of it. It is, mostly. You should ask him sometime about Mystic Timbers. What that was going to be before he became GM in late 2016. Also worth noting the same people were at corporate in 2014 and 2017, but compare Banshee’s theming to Mystic Timbers as an entire story-driven coaster. So...why the change? Answer: a change in leadership at the park. Mystic Timbers also has a back story behind it, which gives them the chance to do the theming they did. Banshee does not. Most of all that comes fro

  10. A few years ago, Dorney had the highest visit per season pass in the entire company. Dorney is a great family park, it sucks that CF hasnt invested more over the years.
  11. Possessed uses the highest electricity out of any right in the park. The main reason why the holding break was turned off. Plus ever since it was hit by lightning, they have had problems with it. That maintenance building in the plans houses all the electricity for the lower part of the park i believe.
  12. ^^ If CP starts hiring as early as dorney, they started back in like December. So they should have a good chunk of staff hired.
  13. Surprisingly, Dorney has a hard time staffing itself. Granted, its not as bad as CP, but they do have their challenges.
  14. Awesome review! Hopefully I will make long hour drive to check it out soon.
