I mused about people getting busted for using these, then called him out on his photos not being 12 megapixels. He's already posted multiple unauthorized Kings Island POVs on his YouTube page. Dude flipped out on me and called me a nasty fanboy wasting $30 on fluffies before blocking me. :lol: I'm a nasty fanboy because I follow park rules.

Nintendo laid the smackdown on Soulja Boy for selling consoles filled with bootleg ROMs. I'd like to see Cedar Fair ban this guy for making (and encouraging others to make) unauthorized ride POVs.

Don't worry, SDC won't be "squeezed in". Other trips will be scaled back to make room for this one.

^ I had 1.5 days at Silver Dollar City when they had their rare 10 pm close and I wish I had more time. That really is one of the best parks in the world.

I had 6 hours at Worlds of Fun and probably could have been done in half the time. That's the park to squeeze in.

I agree. I don't know when this trip takes place, but the best time is July when SDC has Moonlight Madness. With a one-day ticket you get a preview starting at 5 pm the day before. So if you arrive at WoF for a 10AM opening, then leave by 1, you can get to SDC by 5 (it's about 3.5 hours assuming good traffic and no accidents). Then you would have all day at SDC, which ranges from 9AM-10PM to 8:30AM-Midnight depending on the day.

Worlds of Fun temporarily renamed Patriot as Patrick since the Kansas City Chiefs are playing the New England Patriots.

This is probably the time I, as a Patriots fan, should make a snide remark that they'll change it back when the Chiefs lose on Sunday. But truthfully, Arrowhead is a house of horrors for the Patriots and the Chiefs have a legitimate offense and pass rush. I'm hoping for a Patriots win, but I'm not going to count my chickens before they hatch.

I always thought Worlds of Fun was a really lively and colorful park towards evening and night, so this will make it even more awesome! It sounds like quite a nice festival for Worlds of Fun standards. Ill be looking forward to it for sure!

So I've been in KC for the past few days as I contemplate a possible job relocation. I followed the GPS to my destination and lo and behold, this is directly across the street.

Think it's a sign? :lol:
