    Trip Reports

    June 20th 2017 Well, here I go. I'll start with the fact that I really enjoyed my first trip ever to KI. I am on a work trip and had to leave my family back in VA, so I visited alone.

    Games: Play Pass

    KD has adopted a new 'play Pass' game system. All midway games have been fitted with card swipers, replacing the old cash dispensers. In fact, they no longer accept cash at all! You must purchase a card at any one of the multiple kiosks around the gaming areas. I used the system for the first...

    Verbulben: The Lightbulb Thread

    Yes Zimmy. My flashlight gets dropped constantly. It has even done a few laps around the inside of a CNC lathe. The protective glass on the face of it is gone, exposing it to the elements. But I cannot simply replace a bulb. I'm wondering if this is why the wolf eye LED's have not been replaced...
