  1. I have noticed the Food disService workers are not much better at Kings Island that they are at SFSTL, but are pretty good at CP. Why is that I wonder? Could it be all the hungry foreigners they bring in that are thrilled to have the oportunity for a great job, that most Americans consider a crap job? Some other reason?
  2. Some questions that may help. If you can answer them you I suspect you will be close to finding your answer. Cedar Fair owns more coasters than I wish to tally. How many of them are spinners? What is the capacity per hour of spinners? Protein spills per hour of spinners?
  3. The TPR Spin Team bashes all complainers and praises Cedar Fair's smart business decision. Or The Apocalypse.
  4. Question on growth. Some pages back the sale of land was mentioned and I obviously missed this when it happened. The clearly had a lot they were not likely to ever use but what position does this put the future of the park in? It is already small by modern standards, but Cedar Point is able to do amazing things in limited space but that does come at a cost.
  5. Is this a fair summation of the concern. While SF is trying to fix all the deferred maintenance over the past decade the pace appears to be very slow. So slow in fact that it may not be even quick enough to keep up with deterioration. Sort of like playing Whack-a-Mole?
  6. I was there too, the ride ops said one of the seatbelts broke. I agree with you that it was oddly empty that day and I enjoyed it, especially as it was one of my first times ever at the park (I drove 8 hours to get there, definitely worth it). Scratching my head. How does that work? Have you sort of been there before?
  7. I think for next season I take one of my polo shirts and have RMC embroidered on it and make a point of taking lots and lots of pictures of structural elements of various coasters, maybe even carry a legal pad with me and take lots of notes. My primary targets: Blue Streak and The Beast. If I make it back to SFSTL I will give The Boss an extra special treatment.
  8. FYI I have had really good luck with the contact us page on their web site. A few weeks ago late on a Saturday afternoon I asked if they infused the Blue Ice Cream with petro chemical based artificial food dyes and received a response within a couple of hours that yes they indeed do infuse their Blue Ice Cream with petro chemical based artificial food dyes. Good to know if you do or do not like to ingest hydrocarbons.
  9. What does the beach look like? NOAA is reporting a beach hazard with 3-5' waves until 7PM tonight.
  10. I am so disappointed. Was really hoping this would be they year they would finally be granted the funds to buy a tank sprayer and a few gallons of weed killer concentrate. Oh well, maybe 2018.
  11. Speaking of naming I think a much better name for this ride would be The Weed Eater. If you are going to let weeds become the signature attraction at the park you should Own It.
  12. As others have said it just depends, on what I don't know. Between 20-25 scans between CP&KI and the waterparks since June I would estimate they have given close scrutiny maybe 25% of the time. Last weekend at KI the associate flagged my kids passes becuase there were two people in the photos and that is not allowed. I was told to stop at processing and have them retaken when I had a chance but was let through. Originally when I purchased the passes on line we used our webcam so it is probably me in the background directing the kids. When SP processing has a short line I will get it done. I wouldn't suggest anyone try and game the system becuase I imagine CF reserves the right to suspend/revoke the pass and deny entry for the day. That would really suck. My Platty with season dining and season funpix for two parks cost over $400. No way would I loan it to somebody.
  13. If you do run into Philrad71 drink up, he always picks up the tab.
  14. Nah, it's probably easier to just grab one of the free ones sitting on top of the bunnies.
