  1. I doubt that, since T2:3D is nowhere near the rest of the Harry Potter area's.
  2. Nice report, glad you had a good time. Stricker's Grove was always a good visit for me when I lived over on that side of town. Now that I have moved a little further away, it's hard to pack up the kids and make the trip, maybe sometime soon though. I am curious as to this as well, I have rode a number of these whenever I get the chance, never have experienced a bad ride on them. I did ride the one at Stricker's, although it was a couple of years ago, and I don't remember it being a bad ride. I am a little disappointed in myself that I didn't ride the Kiddie-Whip, guess I assumed that they wouldn't let me ride due to height requirements. Maybe, that will help convince me to make a trip again next year. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Not too disappointed about T2:3D being removed. It was really cool when I went for my first time when I was a lot younger. Then each time, I became less and less interested in it, until my past visit a couple of years ago, my wife and I didn't have any desire to experience it.
  4. I'm not a huge Disney fan, but I have always wanted to attend this event. We were planning a trip in a couple years once my youngest gets a little bit older, wonder how hard it would be to convince my wife to push the trip back from February to October for this event. Is the Happy HalloWishes firework display different than the normal fireworks display that they show on a nightly basis?
  5. Depending on how much your looking to pay for a room, there is a Great Wolf Lodge right next to KI, however very expensive. If your looking for something reasonably priced, check out the Baymont Inn & Suites in Mason right down the road. Stay away from the Super 8 in Mason, I have never heard anything good about it. There are a couple hotels the next exit down on 71 such as a Holiday Inn Express and a Marriott. As for crowds, like said in the post above. I'm sure it will be crowded if the weather is nice. However, as of right now they are expecting the end of Hurricane Harvey to reach up here Friday evening, just in time for the weekend, which could help keep the crowds away. They do also have dollar days this weekend, which could help you save some money if you choose to shell out the money for Fast Lane Plus.
  6. I held off from reading this until today to help push me through a slow workday right before an extended weekend. So far, it has not disappointed. Excited to read the rest. I haven't paid much attention towards SFNE, it was never really on my radar of parks to visit anytime soon. Reading through this has definitely changed my plans for the near future.
  7. Enjoy your visit, weather looks to be nice both of those days. Start with MT first, should be ok with Banshee anytime throughout the day.
  8. All depends on what you want to ride the most, which day you are going. This is the best plan if you don't want to wait in lines, if you want to limit your walking, then start at one side of the park and just go from ride to ride. As for places to eat, are you from Cincinnati? Being a local to people that aren't from around here, I always suggest Skyline Chili, or Larosa's, both are local chains. If neither of those interest you, I would suggest either the Red's Hall of Fame Grille in Rivertown or Chicken Shack in Action Zone. That being said, try to avoid eating during "peak" times if at all possible. Kings Island has issues with their food service and the crazy wait times to get anything to eat.
  9. Yeah, that IS a great collection of parks to all have within 3 and a half hours of you! I think it's funny that even though you live in the same state as CP, you are a half-hour farther away from it than I am in Michigan! Ohio is a BIG state! Not sure about your drive, but beside Ohio being a long drive, it is also an extremely boring drive. Flat, cornfield's and tree's. There isn't much to see. Makes for an even longer drive.
  10. I'm pretty lucky with the amount of parks that I have within a reasonable distance from my house. Kings Island (6 miles, 13 Minutes) Coney Island (29 miles, 40 Minutes) Stricker's Grove (34 miles, 46 Minutes) Close as well Kentucky Kingdom (130 miles, 2 hours 12 minutes) Holiday World (198 miles, 3 hours 13 minutes) Cedar Point (206 miles, 3 hours 28 minutes)
  11. Glad you had a good visit, unfortunately this seems to be a common issue with KI's boo blasters. It's more of a game to see if your actually going to get a car where all the guns work versus the actual game itself, my son loves that ride and is almost in tears whenever we get a car where the guns don't work, good thing there is plenty else to do, he forgets about it rather quickly.
  12. Sounds like another successful day for both of you at Cedar Point, except for the power outage. Wonder if that's their only experience with one this season? I know down here in Cincinnati, Kings Island had a couple issues with power outages in the beginning of the season, which they seem to have fixed the issue now. I had no idea that Cedar Point had a Tilt-a-Whirl!! That is some of the best news I have heard, makes me that much more excited for our trip coming up. I never miss riding one whenever I come across one, unfortunately they are few and far in-between it seems like. I love the detail and the pictures from your report, helps to keep remind me to slow down and enjoy everything the parks have to offer and not just focus on the coasters. Thank you again for taking the time to share this.
  13. I am from Cincy, Jumbo Diaz used to pitch for us for a couple years, not a great pitcher. Massive is an understatement for this man, I had the opportunity to meet him, I don't know if I have ever seen a baseball player as big as him. However he is an extremely nice guy, signed a bunch of stuff for my son. Stadium looks really nice, I love going to other stadiums, Detroit is still on my list of stadiums to visit.
  14. Great report, thanks for sharing. I enjoyed Six Flags St. Louis when I visited, although it has been 8 or 9 years since my last visit. A lot has changed, I may be due for another visit soon. When we went virtually every ride was a walk on as well, it's a great feeling being at any park and getting lucky with walk-ons all day long. The boss was the worst ride I have ever rode, I don't remember exactly where we sat but I do remember the pain I felt during and after the ride. To this day, it is the only ride that I have rode where I needed an extended break once I got off.
  15. Glad you enjoyed the little bit of KI that you got to experience. Definitely come back for more, there is so much more. It's not often that you get as lucky as you did with walk-on's like that. To bad the day didn't last longer for you, sounds like it would have been a perfect day at the park. The heat can do a lot of crazy things to people and everybody reacts different to it, especially if you are not used to it. I think I am in the minority that actually loves the heat, bring on the 100 degree days, I have no issue with it. I wouldn't be surprised if Waffle House did in fact help out with that, mixed with the heat. We used to stop at Waffle House every time we would drive down to Kentucky Kingdom, it never failed us that someone in our group would end up getting sick at some point throughout the day.
