  1. Past hour
  2. Remember when people were claiming there would be no pics released of the path??? I didn't notice a Mid-Course Freestyle stand...
  3. It's okay. This year when Cedar Point opened that new country stage in the back of the park by Maverick, that made that path really tight too. I'm sure Cedar Fair will make sure Kings Island has plenty of space over there.

    Future multi launch coaster

    Correct. However, with FOF and BLSC both being Premier-built, there could be some convenience found in having a third coaster from the same manufacturer (when acquiring replacement parts and service). Ultimately though, I would think (and hope) that they go with Mack, for the reason you stated...

    Holiday World and Hersheypark still have them. I believe Knoebels does to some extent as well.

    The flyers are coming back. https://www.carowinds.com/play/rides/mountain-gliders Have you ever wanted soar like a bird over majestic mountains? The Mountain Gliders, opening in Carowinds’ all-new Blue Ridge Junction area in 2019, offers an experience that’s mighty close. After boarding one of the unique carriages, you’ll start spinning at a high speed, so much so that you’ll spin outward and rise to 28 feet above the ground. Once in the air, you take matters into your own hands by operating the carriage’s controls to command the glider’s flight. Whether you explore the high altitudes as if flying above the Blue Ridge Mountains or cruise at a lower elevation in the valleys, the choice – and experience, mild or wild – is up to you.

    Sorry for the double post, but I am going to throw in a link that a local talk radio show did with Mr. Hart this afternoon: https://whas.iheart.com/featured/terry-meiners/content/2018-10-17-kentucky-kingdom-is-getting-a-new-coaster/

    Parking would be such a non-issue for everyone involved if parks just brought back the trams. But that is never going to happen
  10. Hopefully that problem will get rectified next year.
  11. I have to say, this looks like it is being done right. Love the pond, covered bridge and billboards with lighting. Will probably look amazing.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I was thinking that a giga in Xbase should have a spacecraft theme. I threw together another giga. I give you Stardust! I also thought of the name Skylab which is the name of another spacecraft and then saw that Kings Island had a ride called Skylab.

    Future multi launch coaster

    @BeastForever I'd say Mack before Premier Rides. Cedar Fair loves working with the same manufacturers throughout their parks so if Copperhead Strike is a success, I'm sure we'll see a Mack quiet frequently in the coming years.
  14. Cross threading a bit here. Carowinds announced today that the Flying Scooter ride that once resided at Coney Island, Cincinnati, and then at Kings Island, will be returning next year at Carowinds as Mountain Gliders. https://www.carowinds.com/blog/2018/blue-ridge-junction

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I'm all for Steel Beast with a 330 ft drop and have it include the largest loop in the world.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Decided to try something a little bit different with today's giga concept. I give you Lazer Force!

    Ability to become a Flagship Park

    I 100% agree on bringing back a campground/rv area.

    Ability to become a Flagship Park

    I completely agree. Since they’re building dorms back there maybe there’s potential to add a camp ground since they’re building the infrastructure required for something like that.

    Ability to become a Flagship Park

    @SonofBaconator I wish they would bring the campground back as well. Maybe even have it situated down by the Little Miami so you can explore the hike/bike trail, while also enjoying KI. Kind of like at CP. Want to go to the beach(trail), just walk out the park gate.

    Ability to become a Flagship Park

    It baffles me the amount of attendance Kings Island gets every year in relation to other seasonal parks in the continent even though we don't truly have our own resort. When I interned for Cedar Point's campground this summer, you wouldn't believe the number of repeat customers that continued to stay at the resort simply because they accommodated Rvs. I strongly believe that if KI brought back their campground, more people would be willing to come and stay for a couple of days. Just a thought.
  22. Is Gould Manufacturing going to be the ones making the Antique Cars? They're the only manufacturer of those rides that can build them close enough to the original Arrow Development model we had.

    Ability to become a Flagship Park

    With Kings Island more of a year round park I still say some unique dark rides a real year round restaurant at the entrance. A knotts East. Alot like Knotts Berry Farm I'd also say Knotts The Point and Wonderland are the only flagships
  24. The Flying scooters have made a comeback, they’re called the Woodstock Gliders in Planet Snoopy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. There was never really a lot of foot traffic in that part of the park anyway so it might just look cramped at first. I think its better than having the area look so desolate.
  26. Wow! That rendering makes me so happy. Glad to see water features and bridges. As long as there is LOTS of trees and shrubbery, I will consider this a 2/10 attraction. (Will be upgraded to 10/10 when KI and CF come to their senses and give us back our eagles...) But seriously, great decision by KI! Only 2 quips I have: One: I wish it were longer than 1/4 of a mile. Two: Coney Mall is going to be VERY cramped back by Vortex and WindSeeker

    Things that KI can improve on

    Why do you want the antenna back on the tower?

    Things that KI can improve on

    1. @SonofBaconator: Sorry! I did not know that this page is already... I'll look next time. 2. Here are my suggestions: 1. Remove or relocate Sling Shot 2. Complete overhaul and restoration of Coney mall (including Racer and Vortex) 3. Bring back the Swiss Sky Ride 4. Expand or revamp Oktoberfest 5. Bring the original theme back to International Street 6. Put back the antenna on the Eiffel Tower 7. Remove Crypt building 8. Remove or relocate Back lot Stunt Coaster I can't think of any more at the moment, but if I do, I'll put it on here.
