Re: The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread

Postby robbalvey » Sat May 19, 2018 8:37 am

So I have to say that I'm more than a little put off by seeing some of the recent posts that include...

- Onride photos from HangTime. (Seriously, people, you KNOW this is not allowed!!!)
- Complaining about a special invite to a film shoot.
- Being rude to the park because some people have a lack of personal responsibility.
- And understanding that some people were not on best behavior that morning.

Let me just make one thing perfectly clear...

If I ever... EVER see an onride photo again during a ride session where TPR members were specifically invited to, you will NEVER be attending a TPR event ever again, nor will you have an account on this forum.

I also don't want to hear people complaining about an event getting cancelled at last minute. People.... THESE EVENTS ARE A PRIVILEGE NOT A RIGHT!!!

If you didn't check your email to find out that the event was cancelled and you showed up anyway, THAT IS YOUR FAULT!!!

Clearly if 47 other people got the email and knew not to show up that morning, the fault here lies on YOU!

Every one of us has "smart" phones so don't be stupid, be SMART and use that technology that is in your hands!!!

i went to the filming event today, and to be completely honest, it was just okay.


Making comments like, "I went to an event I was invited to and it was just okay" is NOT ACCEPTABLE!!! That shows absoultely ZERO RESPECT for the people who extended that invite to us. I will not tolerate such behavior from TPR forum members. There will be no warning next time.

Drove from Ventura and was told here at the gate its was cancelled. Spoke to marketing manager and said sorry and that email was sent late last night. Advise him that I was asleep because I had the get up early. So pissed right now.


You have NO IDEA how close I am to banning you for this comment. Seriously, you have no idea how much reading this infuriates me. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY, NOT THE PARKS, TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL FOR ANY UPDATES ON THE EVENT. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TRY TO BLAME THE PARK, OR BE PISSED AT ANYONE BUT YOURSELF FOR NOT DOUBLE CHECKING!!!! The fact that you implied that the park was at fault for having an early morning event which is why you didn't check your email is so insanely unacceptable that I cannot put into human words to actually describe how in the wrong you are for saying such a thing.

saying that it was okay is my opinion, which i am entilted to. parks give y’all perks all the time, yet i don’t see a gleaming review of every park you’ve been to. i discussed the positives and negatives of the event, which is what a REVIEW (which i wrote) is supposed to do. aren’t you the person who asked for the POV that SimiGeek took??

Wow. That amazing display of obnoxious entitlement just got you banned from our forums and any event TPR will ever do in Southern California. I honestly cannot believe someone would be so stupid as to post something like this after what I posted above. No, Mr. Corn, you are NOT entitled to an opinion when this was a free event that you were invited to take part in that allowed you multiple rides without having to wait in any line and you received special treatment. If you think you are "entitled" to an opinion about that, YOU ARE SO WRONG it's not even funny. And it's not funny.

Seriously, it is EXACTLY this type of rude self-entitled mentality of why we stopped doing public tours. Why we now think twice about doing events like West Coast Bash. Why I hesitate to send people to events that I personally haven't met. It is people exactly like Mr. Corn who ruin these opportunities being available for others. So when we stop doing West Coast Bash, or stop extending invites to our members to special events, you can blame people like him, because this sort of behavior is at the root of the problem. And our solution is simply just to not do events like this at all anymore if people can't be respectful. I never thought we would be at the point where showing respect to a park would be too much to ask, but apparently it is.

--Robb "People like this always end up weeding themselves out of TPR..and I'm sure I'll be blamed for it also." Alvey :roll:

ps. And if you're going to have an obnoxious sense of self-entitlement Mr. Corn, at least learn how to SPELL THE WORD!!!

This was not an “event.” You filled seats so they could get footage they needed. You got free admission to park and the opportunity to ride with no line.

EXACTLY! This is how you do a media event or a film shoot:

You show up, you sit in the train, you do what you are told, and you are respectful and thankful towards the park no matter what happens.

THAT'S IT! There is no "review" of a media shoot.

Ugh, it disgusts me that I am even having to write this.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I will never understand why anyone complains about getting in free, when if you weren't invited you'd have to pay to get in, that is a big enough bonus to not complain. I wouldn't invite these people back either Robb.

And would you look at that... it only took a matter of what, an hour or so before Mr. Corn took to Reddit to blame "Blobb" for his actions.

why are people such fucking assholes.png


Honestly, I'm so happy we are able to weed these people out of TPR. And thank you to the person who sent me this screen shot! This sort of made my day! lol :lol: :lmao: :lol:

I always found that Mr. Korn guy off putting with his comments and posts here on the forum. Glad to hear he will no longer be participating here.

Exactly! Why complain about getting free entry to the park, free ERT, a free meal, and being able to stay for the rest of the day if you want? Some people.
