  1. I would LOVE to see that. Vines interwoven in the wood shed and below would give the station such a cool look, and would theme with the woods and Rivertown.
  2. I do agree that Firehawk (2007, Cedar Fair's first full year) and the creation of X Base was a fantastic way to keep with the themed areas. But I do not believe Cedar Fair particularly cares too too much about the themed areas. Diamondback, a HUGE coaster, essentially took over Rivertown and got rid of the remaining ambiance of an old abandoned Ohio town by the river. Swan Lake had tons of trees before Diamondback, and some of you will remember that there was LOTS of more trees on the walk back to The Beast. Need I mention the Coney Mall sign removal for....more Coke products?? Sure, Paramount felt they could shove their movie-themed rides anywhere they wanted without regards to the theme of area, but it doesn't seem like Cedar Fair can theme much beyond some random creature (sometimes real {Diamondback, The Bat}, sometimes mythical {Valravn, Banshee}) and few rare props in a queue line.

  4. Do you think this ride merits its own Gift Shop / Merchandise shop like Banshee and Diamondback? Or will this ride assimilate into KI's collection of coasters as a mid-range, moderate ride, not worth the money to staff such a gift shop/photo booth?
  5. http://www.coaster101.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/MT1-600x399.jpg Does anyone know what the building on the right is? Is that a part of the queue line or is this going to be lockers? Here's the blueprints from twitter from a while ago. You can see a couple buildings next to the station. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C1VGsGPUAAEm4DK.jpg (Mod edit: removed the embedded Twitter image, as the copyright status is unclear. It's available by clicking the above link.)
  6. To be honest, I don't even like the name of the park. Paramount's Great America was bad, but California's Great America seems to be even more of a mouthful.
  7. Well according to blueprints of the station / queue area that was posted a while ago, the queue will go right under the shed and you should be able to see that part Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I hope they have vines growing around the sides of the shed as depicted in that simulation. because #theming
  9. Speaking of Souvenir cups, I heard this year they're doing away with the all-season drink cup and are only offering the $1 refill one again? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Fun Fact This will actually be Kings Island's 46th season, but I suppose they are celebrating the competition of 45 seasons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. I would LOVE to see a B&M flyer come to Cedar Point. I was sort of saddened in a way when we got Firehawk because I knew that meant we wouldn't ever get a B&M Flyer. But I mean I am biased, since Flying Coasters are by far my fav type of coaster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. You must be at least 16 to work in rides period. The 18-and older positions are the control booths at major attractions. This excludes smaller rides, however. For this reason, you'll often see younger associates in the Planet Snoopy Area, where only two rides (Flying Ace drive and Woodstock Express drive) have positions that require you to be 18.
