Wonder how much longer we will be seeing people going down their tall slide while waiting for the light to go to PKI?
Go find your Oldsmobile dealer these days...
But honestly, "Same boring bay?" Yuk Yuk.... and the Beach's new ride this year is?... or last year was?.... or the year before was?... and the year before was?.... remind me again.
I smell an air of familiarity. Can you say "Surf Cincinnati?"

I think the best thing is to know your limits and expound on the areas you excel in. I remember when Six Flags really started going national after getting the D.C. license(during WB's ownership), saying that they knew they were number two, and that if you're going to be number two, you still have to offer something number one dosen't have. They didn't bash number one(Disney), but said that they knew they offered what number one couldn't, thrills.

I don't like name calling either. They should have more class than that. Leave the name calling for the politicians.
I look forward to checking out Boomerang Bay during Beastbuzz! :-D
Number two reason I don't vote(here comes some backlash...):)
But then again, The Beach, imo, was always far superior to WaterWorks, and from the looks of it, still is. (I know, I know, I haven't been to Boomerang Bay.)
I'll be seriously sad if the Beach closes. To me, it just feels so much more like a "real" water park than a bunch of slides on a slab of concrete, like Waterworks was. Boomerang Bay may be different, but I highly doubt it will have the variety of interesting rides like the Beach does.
I don't think PKI could possibly duplicate the excellent Hidden Rapids. Snake River Falls is a combo tube slide/rushing river, with a big underground drop at the end. The Cliff has an underground tunnel. I've never ridden the blaster ride but I don't think Boomerang Bay will has anything like that.
The Beach commercials are becoming quite common on the radio these days. The version I keep hearing though goes after the money angle:
"Don't pay to go to an overpriced bay", pointing up the fact that PKI's list price is about double the Beach's.
I haven't gone to Boomerang Bay yet, but the Beach was the best waterpark in Cincinnati prior to this season. We'll see how that ranking goes this year.
I also like all the sand. My feet always were sore after a few hours at Waterworks.
1. The Beach
2. Boomerang Bay
3. Sunlite Pool @ Coney Island
(It has slides and activities)
and until recently Surf Cincinnati.
This leaves alone municipal pools and YMCA's that are installing slides with their pools.
I'd say that the "Best in Cincinnati" line would be a fair marketing ploy.
That said, while I haven't seen Boomerang Bay yet, one would have to work hard to beat the landscaping and atmosphere of The Beach. I personally love those sandy beaches, so much easier for walking in. I hear it causes problems with pool filtration systems though.
The watercoaster in the back of the park rules, and as the commerical says "the only watercoaster in Cincinnati". I'm disapointed PKI didn't purchase a nice Master Blaster for Boomerang Bay. Or a Trasnportainment system for that matter where you can enjoy several attractions without leaving the water.
