  1. I meant to post my video here from my trip on October 16. I had never been to Haunt on Friday's and wasn't sure how the crowds would be. It was also fairly cool that night. I'm not in to the haunted houses, but went through probably the two easiest ones, Sorority House and the clown one.


    I've gained a little weight since I went a year ago, so Diamondback was a no go for me. I was able to get on Banshee though. I still love that thing. It wasn't as warm as the June day last year when I rode it. I was freezing when I got off of it, but it was well worth it.



  2. I thought about the drop tower thing as soon as I read it. I am okay with it as well, but I figure the press and some general public will go crazy about it. I think the coaster looks awesome and is going to be an airtime machine. I think while it is smaller, it will back a punch. It also puts a nice new steel coaster in the front of the park that can be seen from the dividing road and from the parking lot. I do wish the name wasn't Lightning Run since Thunder Run is already in the park. It is appropriate to announce the coaster named after lightning since later on this Sunday the area is suppose to have really bad severe storms.


    Obviously they are adding on to the main money makers the most, Hurricane Bay. That is a very smart move as long as we don't see a Geauga Lake happen where the water park is all that will be in a few years. I also think it is pretty cool they're gonna have a seal show. You don't see many non-marine theme parks with that anymore.


    I think it is gonna be a great opening year for them and many great years ahead.



  3. I know the controversy comes from the documentary "Blackfish", but don't they normally have a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade? I just watched the film, and I feel like there were some things I didn't agree with and some I did. I still think all the good stuff that Sea World does makes it a great company. You also can't take Killer Whales that are raised in captivity and release them into the wild. They would die rather quickly.

  4. Here's a video from 1993 when the park was freshly bought by Paramount. At the 3 minute mark it shows some of the theming that used to be below Top Gun's station.



    Awesome to see that since I can't seem to really remember the ride until we moved back into this area in 2002. It was also cool to see how the idea of Paramount buying the parks was thought to be an amazing thing. I don't think they did horrible, but definitely could have done better. I really hope Cedar Fair isn't going to take out Flight Deck just yet.

  5. I noticed underneath Flight Deck as well and then I saw the stuff on the ground. I can't imagine its being taken out with the crowds that will be drawn over to to that area next year. Unless it is really hard to maintain I would think that would be a stupid idea.


    The park Saturday was probably the busiest I have ever experienced myself. I felt like early-on it wasn't too busy because a lot of the rides didn't have all of their turnstiles open in the ques. I even road Firehawk which I actually like, but usually skip because the line moves so slowly.


    The only Haunt related complaints from me is line placements. The maze in Tomb Raider's old building and The Beast lines kept getting mixed in together because there wasn't any clear definition of where each line was until you got to a place where there was a separation. I figured it out, but many didn't.


    It was also confusing to have Club Blood, Flight Deck, and Wolfpack entrances together and have Flight Deck exit in the same spot. What a mess and there weren't any signs I saw that told you Flight Deck's entrances was down there. Like I said, it was packed Saturday.

  6. I really just got into listening to podcasts' this year. I listen to ones mainly comedy based or about the entertainment industry.


    I listen to:


    You Had To Be There- Sara Schaefer & Nikki Glaser

    I Seem Fun: The Diary of Jen Kirkman- Jen Kirkman

    Shane & Friends- Shane Dawson & Lauren Schnipper

    Scriptnotes- John August & Chriz Mazin

    Throwing Shade- Erin Gibson & Brian Safi



    Hollywood Handbook

    Social Media Marketing- Michael Stelzner


    I don't know if anyone would be interested, but I have started my own podcast with one of my friends called "Proceed With Caution". We mainly talk about our personal lives, pop culture(music, movies, tv), and actual real news. You can find us on iTunes. Just click here: Proceed With Caution


    Our RSS feed is: http://www.proceedwithcaution.libsyn.com/RSS


    I am also up for any suggestions on any podcast I should checkout. I've kinda become obsessed, I mean, I even started my own. Haha.

  7. I think it would be awesome if they went with some crazy, new design. The downside with a brand-new type of coaster would be the inherent risks of it not working properly. That could be bad during the first year that Kentucky Kingdom being open to have the new coaster closed all the time.


    They are definitely smart in investing more into the water park this first year. A small investment goes a long way with water parks.

  8. I think Banshee looks awesome and is something that I wish Kings Island had gotten long ago. I also hope they put the tombstones around the track, maybe some near misses with some bigger tombstones. The colour scheme is a very unique one that hasn't been in many park(or any?), so I like that. I think it may also add some added near-miss thing to Delirium depending on how far away the drop actually is from Delirium's swing.

  9. I have been off of this site since like 2009. I always knew this site was friendly towards gay people, which I always thought was awesome. Back when I was active on here, I didn't really think anything about gay, but now that I know that I am, I am glad that something I love is so supportive. Hoping to post on here more often again and looking forward to making a few friends along the way.
