  2. I was never on it. It was during my younger years where it was coasters and nothing else for me.

    Kings Island Music

    Hey! It's been a while since I've posted on here. I decided to comment on this thread rather than start a new thread since there are so many threads on this topic. As we've discussed, Kings Island has been making improvements to the soundtrack heard around the park, namely International Street and Rivertown. In my free time, I pieced together some playlists on Spotify of International Street from 2017 and 2018 as well as Rivertown. As a kid, I grew up going to the park under Paramount and eventually CBS/Viacom. One day, I decided that it would be cool to make a playlist of the music that played on International Street during the Paramount years. I searched through old forums and created a playlist of any music I could find from that era. These are the songs I have so far: - James Bond "Dr No." Theme by John Barry - Theme to Mission Impossible by Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. (At least a similar version) - "The Saint" by Orbital - Love theme from The Godfather by Nino Rota - "Breakfast Machine" from Pee Wee's Big Adventure by Danny Elfman - Love theme from Romeo and Juliet by Nino Rota - "Unchained Melody (Orchestral)" from Ghost by Maurice Jarre - "Top Gun Anthem" from Top Gun by Harold Faltermeyer - Love theme from St. Elmo's Fire by David Foster - "Italia" from The Talented Mr. Ripley by Gabriel Yared - "End Credits" from Star Trek: First Contact by Jerry Goldsmith - Theme to Superman by John Williams - Love theme from Chinatown by Jerry Goldsmith - "Rose" from Titanic by James Horner - "Axel F" from Beverly Hills Cop by Harold Faltermeyer - Theme to The Naked Gun by Ira Newborn - Theme to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope by John Williams - "Imperial March" from The Empire Strikes Back by John Williams - Main Theme from Forrest Gump by Alan Silvestri - End Titles from Driving Miss Daisy by Hans Zimmer - "Where the Money Is" from "The Distinguished Gentleman by Randy Edelman - "Marion's Theme / The Crate" from Raiders of the Lost Ark by John Williams. Are there any changes that I need to make or any songs that I am missing out of that list? I plan to provide the links to the playlists on here sometime in the near future. Thanks everyone!

    I agree, there’s no reason CedarFair would scrap several large projects just because they had a rough start last year.

    Guests Say The Darnest Things

    At my home park (SFGAm) this past summer, I was on my way to Hurricane Harbor, and I heard 2 girls talking. I couldn't really make out what they were saying, even though they were right behind me. I could tell that they were talking about Raging Bull, and I'm sure the word "splashdown" at one point. That sounded really cool, until I heard the younger girl say that THE Raging Bull goes in the waterpark. Cringe. That wasn't the worst or most darnest thing I have heard, but I just wanted to post it because I thought it belongs here, especially the part about it having a splashdown AND going into the waterpark.

    I am guessing it means they will be focusing on other aspects of the parks for a while like flats and general improvements. To me that is just as important as adding a big coaster.
  8. Tayto Park is home to a SBF Visa spinner and the legendary Cu Chulainn wooden coaster. Those two are the only coasters in Ireland... for now.

    No it won't affect next years addition(s)....as they are already in the process (design, planning, likely site prep, etc.) If anything, I feel like the additions of major coasters have slowed down in recent years anyway...we'll continue to see additions as parks evolve.

    Phantom Therater......returns?

    I've done my fair share of riding boo blasters and to me the blasters seem super hit or miss. My high score was around 2700 with a good working blaster and then there have been times where i've only gotten a couple hundred. I've come to find out that each blaster has its own way of aiming

    Did you guys read the latest Cedar Fair conference call? They implied that the major coaster additions will likely slow down . Do you think that this affects next years addition? When will we see actual construction work for the new B&M?
  12. They did not remove Paddlewheel for Shoot The Rapids...it was removed for Dinos which I would have rather kept Paddlewheel. I really hope that Paddlewheel would come back to CP....it was a great leisure ride, the spieling was hilarious no matter what it was and it was just a good family experience as well.
  13. That would be neat. Did they remove that for shoot the rapids?

    Things Paramount got right/wrong

    Considering Volcano's fate, this comment is kind of funny. And before anyone comments, it's not funny they are removing the ride. It's funny that she mentioned them having the ride, which will be defunct, while staying we had a ride which is defunct as well.

    I'd prefer the blue to be a little darker, like a galaxy blue. Then name the coaster Wildcat 345 in honor of the Big Blue Nation.

    Thank you! I think it would work well on the skyline.

    Phantom Therater......returns?

    I rode it once during Winterfest I think, ride got stopped for whatever reason, I got a working blaster, and I was in front of a target that reset a bit quicker than most.
  22. That's what it looks like to me....I don't know for sure...maybe will find out more this weekend at Winter Chill Out.

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    It's definitely not out of the realm of possibilities. That actually is part of the reason I brought up the other hotels being built around the area...it shows that there is a want/need for overnight accommodations for folks coming to Kings Island, because let's face it...if there wasn't KI would these hotels still be built? I doubt it. The park once had a campground and Kings Island Resort...so with the loss of these two properties, they definitely lost out on income. I imagine the park eventually will have a hotel...however, I really hope it's not a chain hotel like the one being built for Carowinds. I would hope that a hotel would be along the lines of Knott's Hotel or Breakers....while keeping the price point affordable.

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    Hotels have been big revenue drivers for CedarFair recently so I’d say the possibility for a Hotel has increased.

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    I am just thinking about how CP had the hotels on site. Same with Disney and so on. I think if KI did that it could be good!? Idk I’m just spitballing haha. I think if they have their own hotels hey can offer packages with rooms and tickets for the guests who are not going to hold season passes. Idk seems like a good idea to me haha. But in a Hotel Breakers in KI. Have it in the area between water park and wwc and MT somewhere!? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  26. Paddle wheel excursion perhaps!? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    I think GWL is a preferred KI hotel. What that means, I don't know. I do know that I have stayed at a couple of Mom and Pop hotels there, and the innkeepers told me that KI had stopped promoting them when they wanted a lot of money--but they still promoted KI. I've been to GWL with my niece, color me not impressed. But I can see the family appeal.
