I was just wondering, but just out of curiousity does anyone know if Angelina Jolie will be at Paramounts Kings Island for Tomb Raider: The Ride on opening day? The reason is I'm a fan of heres and I think it would be a nice addition to the park to have her there on opening day to sing autographs and such for a few hours. I sure would like to meet her in person.

Not to rain on your parade but if Angelina was at the TR:TR media day, I doubt she would be signing autographs for a lot of fans. Since the media day will be for the media, and not really for the fans of the ride or the movie, I don't think that having a autograph session at a media event would be the best way to meet the fans.
Back when Montu opened in 1996, Drew Carey was brought in to help hype the ride. During media day, I don't think I saw him get approached by any fans asking for autographs. That is not to say it didn't happen, but I never saw it. I didn't even consider it because I knew it was a media event. I did get to talk wtih him a bit, but never did I ask him to sign anything......but then again, that could be because I didn't have anything for him to sign. I don't know about you, but I didn't want to leave a media event with a signature on my face. =:^)

Well as far as being a female and looks go and being the saving grace for the Tomb Raider film, I definitely would like to see her the most.
But, with being a big movie buff, I would like to see Billy Bob as well, because he had three outstanding performances this year with The Man Who Wasn't There, Monsters Ball, and Bandits. Not that anyone here would know about movies or anything... ;)
Maybe we could put them in seperate cages though. :)

I agree with Koaster King. Angelina is hot, but to be honest, I'd rather meet Billy Bob. He's a great actor who turned in incredible performances in The Man Who Wasn't There, U-Turn, Sling Blade, A Simple Plan and many more, as well as great writing and directing in Sling Blade. Angelina is a mediocre actress who lucked into an Oscar and now stars in crappy action movies.
You can't spell "dishonorable" without "honorable."

After looking at the original thread, I originally thought the original poster was talking about media day, and not the official opening day. My bad.
As for Angelina signing autographs at PKI on opening day, I still think that is a long shot, but then again, the park has surprised us before.

Probably about the same chance that we had of Xena being at the opening of X :P

If they are using her likeness for the ride, then she is probably contractually obligated t make an appearance for MEDIA day, but not OPENING day.

I have seen a park have a autograph session after debuting a new coaster and the person seemed to be more popular than the coaster. Nothing to take away from the coaster but each attraction drew there own crowd.
Granted that person was Colby from the survivor series and it did not interest me that much. The Coaster (Cheetah) was the main attraction for me. However angelina would be a different story over a topspin.

I think that she probably won't be there for opening day, but maybe for media day. That would be cool if she was there though, she is hot.

PKI MAN, I'm not really sure what's going on at PKI, but Jeff S. hasn't responded to my e-mails, two in the past month or so. I have "business" with him, so I hope nothing serious is going on...

Rollergator, I've received two e-mails from him in the past week, so as far as I know, everything is ok. Who knows why he would respond to my questions about TR:TR and not business you have with him. Hopefully, he'll get to you as soon as possible.
I do know that he didn't respond to many e-mails between a week after closing and the third week of January, so I would probably resend if it was between that time.
