  1. Past hour
  2. I would love to see Kings Island debut a new front entry plaza with a renovated front gate, new ticket booths, and new landscaping. Like @Hawaiian Coasters 325 said, they can just upgrade the facade of the front gate building. I would be okay if they completely redo everything else though. It would also be cool to see a legacy walk (maybe in Tower Gardens), a new ivy tunnel, some Oktoberfest love, and new live entertainment celebrating Kings Island.
  3. Today
  4. Definitely would love to see a big time celebration like what Cedar Point is doing. A trivia with prizes you could win would be nice! Definitely should play a documentary on the FunTVs (I may be a minority, but I don't like the FunTVs lol). I also would love to see a new skywheel as well as Boo Blasters revamped into a modern Phantom Theater (similar to what Knott's is doing with their dark ride revamping it and basing it off an older attraction). I also would love to see an upgraded entry plaza (not year down the current entrance) but maybe give the building some TLC and new ticket booths and
  5. I’d love to see a flat ride be added to Oktoberfest for the 50th season. In terms of merchandise I’d really love to see the return of souvenir maps!
  6. The golden year is almost here! When Kings Island opened in 1972 it began with a brash experiment of bringing world class excitement of a Disney like formula to a regional seasonal park. Almost 50 years later, Kings Island has grown into the Midwest's largest and one of the most successful in the US. For it's 50th, as enthusiasts and people who love our park, what are you most excited for and more importantly what are the things you would love to see the park do for next season? For me, I would love to see signs around the park showing the history of each location, the rides and att
  7. Yesterday
  8. Sent in my question! I asked if for the 50th anniversary (which stone is GOLD) if the tower will be repainted GOLD, also what is in store for the 50th if any information can be shared. But I would love to know, how many of you would love to see the Eiffel Tower painted GOLD?
  9. So Gene Staples is looking into buying Fantasy Island. This would make Gene Staples a theme park chain owner. It was said that he has plans to further his growth into the amusement park industry and it definitely looks like he’s doing that. Here is the vid for more info:
  10. I hope that gets you some listens!
  11. The Racer, Chef's Plate, Grand Carnivale Returns, and the KICentral Podcast is mentioned. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2021/may/kings-island-mailbag-the-racer-chefs-plate-and-grand-carnivale
  12. So 6pm closes on busy days? Makes me wonder what the line of thinking is there. If it is that busy pay employees to keep the park running till 10pm maybe even midnight. Make more money on merchandise, beer, food etc. But what do I know. Also I know some of us would be completely fine with backing up the opening if it meant some later hours and night rides.
  13. Yeah the gate rules only apply during the early entry hour. I'm interested in line closure times as well. 90 minutes early was the most aggressive line close we observed last year (Valravn). This year, with the big 4 being back off access passes I wonder if it'll be 120 minutes early on Maverick/SV on very busy days. Not ideal.

  15. From comments made by Bob Chapek during yesterday's earnings call and an interview with CNBC, masks will most likely be dropping at Walt Disney World at some point this summer. Looks good for our July 17 trip to WDW!! https://wdwnt.com/2021/05/ceo-bob-chapek-confirms-walt-disney-world-mask-policy-will-change-this-summer/ Edit: Universal Orlando dropping outdoor masks starting tomorrow, 5/15! https://wdwnt.com/2021/05/breaking-universal-orlando-resort-no-longer-requiring-guests-to-wear-masks-outdoors-starting-tomorrow/

  17. we will be there with flp on Friday and Saturday next week
  18. It looks like Forbidden Frontier is making a comeback this season: https://www.cedarpoint.com/rides-experiences/forbidden-frontier-on-adventure-island
  19. I'm not there but I have already seen a picture on facebook with a Dragster will not open today sign. Its gonna be a typical garbage truck on fire opening weekend. I'm gonna avoid it and go next weekend. They supposedly already changed the gate policy. I think any guest can enter and leave any gate after 10am but do not quote me on that.
  20. Kennywood and Waldameer have dropped the masks as of today.
  21. Precisely my take on the matter as well. "We've offered the vaccine, it's widely available, if you want it, get it, if you don't don't. If you want to say you did but didn't, you might end up sick."
  22. Steel Vengeance has not opened yet. Only resort guests can enter the Magnum gates. Be interesting to see what time they cut some lines off at tonight as they have stated they will do that.
  23. Who all is going to be at the park tomorrow? I'm thinking of leaving Indy around 8:30 tomorrow morning to get there for rope drop. It looks like it will be me, myself, and I going tomorrow, so if anyone wants to wander around with another human let me know!!
  24. I like when you can order on a touch screen and scan your pass to use meal plan. It seems to make it much easier and faster
  25. This is just a concept. I agree that we are still a few years out from anything going there.
