PKI gold pass problem

Sunday, April 8, 2001 9:27 AM
Was anyone but me noticing that the gold passes at PKI are a slight problem. THEY DONT HAVE NAMES ON THEM!!! The pictures are so pixilated that I picked up the wrong pass and had to go back at the end of the night to get the right one! Origionally i was waiting for over an hour for mine. Oh well. I got the right one so i dont care anymore.

I noticed that do. I got my passes upgraded to gold today and they didn`t have my name on it. Also, they were making some regular passes and those didn`t have names on them! Another problem I encountered is that they only had one exit out of the Gold Season Pass parking area. Boy, that`s going to have to change! Also, they only had one train running on Flight of Fear which meant that I had to wait about a half hour to 45 minutes. And today was not crowded at all with walk on lines to practically everything (the Beast, son of Beast!) I`d sure hate to see FOF`s line on a busy day!!!!

The person in charge of PKI said that the Flight of Fear trains were on loan to Kings Dominion at the Press Day last Wednesday, and I think that they only got one back so far.

I doubt that they loaned trains to PKD. What probably happened with FOF is they only retrofitted one train as an experiment. Now that the one train is an aboslutely smashing success, Premier can move forward with refitting the remaining two.

The rest of the FoF trains are still in Virginia for who knows why. According to a ride opp, they'll be back in May.

I just can't understand why the FoF trains would be in Virginia when Paramount's design and maintenance division is headquartered in Mason, Premier Rides is based in Maryland, and I think I heard someplace that the cars themselves were actually built in Cincinnati...

We got our passes up-graded to "gold" status on Wed 4/4 and they do have our names on them.

Also, regarding the exits for the Gold lot, there are two of them, the one at the entrance and one on the southwest corner of the lot.

Regarding the FOF trains, only one had been retro fitted with the new restraints (Fantastic aren't they) and second train should be ready in a couple of weeks. And they are planning on a 3rd train. The rumor that the trains were loaned to PKD is untrue.

I'll add my reason to why I do NOT think the trains are at PKD. If PKD had extra retrofitted FOF trains, why would they simply run one? The answer is they wouldn't. They are only running one train because that's all they have. PKI's trains are NOT at PKD.

Concrete proof that PKI's trains weren't at PKD are the restraint backups. PKD uses a conventional buckle on the lapbar where PKI uses a loop and dog clip.
