We all hate waiting in lines. But would you pay four-times the price if you could skip the lines... for food? A new survey out of England claims Americans would do just that. We'll talk all about it.

Our Quick Hits segment takes a look at four interesting news stories from the amusement industry. This week, we take a look at a weird story out of Germany where a young girl found her grandfather's tombstone being used as a prop in a haunted house. Weird. We also take a look at Stinger being removed from Dorney Park, Stitch's Great Escape being removed from the Magic Kingdom and the first days of the new Trump animatronic in the Hall of Presidents.

Then, we'll take some time to learn about one of the oldest amusement parks in the country... Coney Island. Except, we're not talking about the one in New York. We'll tell you all about the history of this Ohio-based park and how it has a unique connection to both Kings Island and Disneyland.
