There's more where that came from!

 

if i brought my fishing pole, do you think it would be possible to fish in the pond by the viking ship?

 

Uhhh, no.

 

Whoever runs KI's Facebook page, be it the GM, PR director, or someone else, they are awesome.

This is more interesting because the park actually responded:

 

idk they cause they spend their money on things like windseeker that was a waste time and money no1 even likes that ride it sucks! please kings island i luv ya but you seriously need faster bigger better thats what people want~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

WindSeeker was a popular attraction with our guests, giving nearly 500,000 rides after its June 21 opening, Seth. Not everyone comes to the park to ride roller coasters. There has to be a balance between thrill rides, family rides and attractions, kids rides, and water park.

 

That's not the first time KI's responded to something in this manner, but I really haven't seen other parks confront someone like this on Facebook.

That really is awesome to see a park respond to stupid comments. I wish more parks did that.

I could just put all of the comments about CP getting rid of WildCat on here, but I'll just pick and choose the best of the best...

 

Thats Poop On A Stick !!! You should Never Loose A Ride For The Sake Of More Retail Space .... Fire the person who came up with the idea of loosing coasters for shopping .... We dont pay to shop We Pay To Play !!!!

 

You guys need to show Holiday World in Santa Clause IN how it's done and what a real park is like cause it sucks

 

You will be held accountable for one angry little 7 yr. boy!

 

Put in a new 400' mega coaster in the park!!! With speeds in excess of 140mph!! PPPPPPPLEASE

 

MOAR ROLLER COASTERS

 

Take it to the new Geauga Lake park!

 

hell no keep the meanstreak, the wild cat was worse! i agree with people, might as well tear down it all and oh ya send to geauga lake... ya cuz the dinos are cool man, not! and yes we are no longer rollercoaster capital

 

Dear cedar point

That's pathetic because cp says there the rollercosster capital of the world well that's a lie it is now again tied with six flags magic mountain just saying cedar point. Lying is bad!!!!!!!! -ur mom

More great replies about Wild Cat being taken out of Cedar Point.

 

I think cedar points demise has begun with the Dino's and now this. Wild Cat is a quick fun thrill. Try removing that disaster of a coaster Disaster Transport or maybe Cedar Creek Mine Ride. Terrible management.

 

Terrible management when they are getting rid of an eye sore where their new 6 million dollar light show is taking place, right......bad management.

 

yea you should let people ride it one last time. thats not fair and its too sudden

 

 

That's not fair and too sudden.........so?

 

Not like the height or anything but like it crashed and was all old and stuff

 

What?? This was an adult writing this comment, painful to read.

 

Doubt I will be back this summer. Thanks

 

Really this was the ride bringing you back to the park?

 

No more wildcat? You are robbing me of my childhood

 

So when the ride leaves this person will no longer have a memory of their childhood.......wow that is sad.

On the CP Facebook page, they uploaded a picture of MF's first drop getting people excited for opening day. Outside of the abundant use of the oh-so-annoying "the" before every ride name, it wasn't too bad. Except for this:

 

"Looks like Fahrenheit at hershey....love both parks...great coaster. Just live closer to hershey. "

 

Huh?

This is someone talking about Millennium Force.

 

that ride is dangerous. thrill is one thing, but watching the whole ride shake from side to side on the way up and down. seen older woodies do that before they crashed off the tracks.

 

Also on the Cedar Point FB page talking about Millennium Force

 

A new ride for the year???

Yah i agree with a lot of you im sure the heck not going [to Cedar Point] this year! have to pay all the extra money that i don't have for fast passes and parking etc,...... its too bad really, im going to Disney instead!

 

Because Disney is considerably cheaper than Cedar Point, what with their free Fastpasses and all.

On SFDK Facebook:

 

Person 1:

Are you sure NO GUEST will fly out of the Superman coaster? I have NEVER in my 15 years of living ridden a coaster that has inversions WITHOUT over the shoulder restraints.

Person 2:

thay already have rides like this in world an it hasnt happend yet

Person 1:

Yea, I was thinking about that, But I know it's the G-Fores that keeps the people onto their seats because it has speed when it goes through the inversion. Superman, On the other hand, It has breaks just before the inversion, Slowing it down for a SLOW inversion. Yea, No forces keeping you on your seat when you go through that twist

 

Not being tied down to your seat =/= falling completely out. Plus, why would any park spend millions of dollars installing a coaster that had the potential for people to fall out?

Ladies and Gentlemen, there is now a "boycott CP and Fastlane" facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/376315829087637/

 

It seems the most common argument is "you're slapping your loyal season pass holders in the face!". Really? What's funny about that to me is that Season Pass holders pay so little for the services they receive compared to non-pass holders. If fastlane is so bad, use your pass the way it was meant to be used and avoid Friday-Sunday.

 

Another (paraphrased) comment was something along the lines of "Well here we go. Corporate interest has come to Cedar Point at last. I had hoped this day would never come". Well if that's how you feel, sir, maybe you should go live in some socialist or communist regime somewhere, since that's what you prefer. At least then, everything's "Fair"

On a "POV" shot SFDK posted, showcasing the launch tunnel and LIMs...

"Will it be ready Memorial weekend?"

Sure, we'll just launch trains off into the midway on the incomplete track, just like I used to do back in the day with RCT!

 

Seriously, does it look like it's going to be ready by next weekend?

These are from that Boycott CF group.

 

Well I think me and my family boycotting the park will effect the park. I would think that the amount of money we spend at the park is more than all of you combined. So yes i think me and many others to come soon as the little kids like yourself are out of school Chris start really packing up the lines

 

Do you seriously believe for 1 minute that they would turn down money from people and say Sorry no more passes today. Really do you think that would ever happen cause hey they are such outstanding people We care about people before money LOL! if they did they would not have Fast lane

 

The people in that group are as bad as the FP haters here if not worse.

Ahh, that was a fun way to waste a night on the internet. Blaze, yes the guy's name is actually Blaze, has based his entire argument about one time at Kings Island where they waited four hours to ride Diamondback because Fast Lane people kept hopping back in line. Not sure he realizes how many people are needed to quadruple your wait time. Here's some more crazy.

 

‎I say to Cedar Fair if you really need extra money so badly make it 1000.00 and at least us waiting in line can entertain ourselves with laughing at all the people who are self absorbed and out 1 thousand dollars. And Cedar Fair can whore in more money for themselves and laugh all the way to the bank
