  1. Past hour
  2. Yes and no. They reversed some stuff. For example, KD’s Flight of Fear was closed in 2006, and Cedar Fair almost immediately reopened it. The rumor was that they planned to move it and CF squashed that. Some stuff was growing pains for KI. Cedar Fair had some arrogance coming in and they did not see the value in season pass and group sales. There was no gold pass program in 2007. Attendance reflected this. Over time, it was evened out and many of Paramount’s “ways” were adopted by Cedar Fair.

    International street makeover

    I don’t think the curbs will return but I’d love to see walkways texturized to look like a sidewalk.

    I would love to see IS returned to that configuration. It looks classier i think.

    International street makeover

    They may get creative with the color and texture of the pavers to mimic a sidewalk and street. I'm more excited for the future of KI than I've ever been. I think they are reading my mind because 75% of my wish list items are being done! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    International street makeover

    Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A. still has a sidewalk. I’m sure Kings Island can make it work.

    International street makeover

    I would imagine that the exterior of the shops will receive maybe a fresh coat of paint and some spruccing up. I would not look for significant changes to any of the shops. Likewise, I would not look for the street and sidewalk motif to return. At least not with an actual 6" high curb. That would be quite a tripping hazard as well as an ADA issue.

    The question is, will the shops change entirely or will the exteriors just be redecorated?

    I’d love to see a campground again.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    It was easier to make a Thunder Road recreation.
  14. Yikes. I did not attend it myself (My first visit to Kings Island was in 2000, when Viacom/Paramount owned the park, and I did not return and start coming to the park "regularly" until 2009) but this CBS year sounds truly awful. I'm guessing it was 2006, right? If so, that was the same year Cedar Fair bought Kings Island and the Paramount chain, which makes me wonder if some of this awfulness was reversed immediately, or if it wasn't removed until 2007, when Cedar Fair fully took over.

    I also like the sidewalks. They make it look like an actual street.

    Coasterstock 2019 dates announced

    A few details on Coasterstock from today's ACE No Coaster Con Event: Glad to see the Flight of Fear photo opportunity is back again this year and that the Antiques are added to ERT this year.
  17. Which resulted in chaos and depending on the day, it would be nearly 10:30 before you were in the park.

    Coasterstock 2019 dates announced

    It's going to be a really fun couple of days for sure. Cannot wait!
  19. I had completely forgotten about that!
  20. Don`t forget that during the CBS year, they made the decision to not open International Street before the park opened. They didn`t start scanning people in until 10am, when the park opened.
  21. I particularly like “one uniform shirt per employee” and “just wear your ID badge on your belt as a name tag.”

    Dinos Alive and Xbase

    I actually asked CF officials during a pannel if they were ever considering adding a hotel. They said that they see Kings Island is more of a regional park; however based off of the additions and improvements the park has been receiving as of late I think that might be changing.

    I agree. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw an on-site hotel added in the next decade

    With the IS renovation, I'm sure that we're going to start seeing more renovations and upgrades in the future. My personal opinion is that CF is going to put a larger focus on making KI a destination, similar to their progress with Cedar Point. KI already has a HUGE base of regional passholders, so it'd be a safe gamble.
  25. Makes sense they would weld it, as welds are stronger than the parent material, hence wont break like bolts, last longer (provided they dont get any porosity), and can be a smoother joint. Looks like a single J butt weld from their diagram. Hard to see though.

    Oktoberfest through the years

    I agree as to it’s ability to make money anyplace. It just seems like making “Action Zone” more about extreme experiences would make sense and it could live there, or as others have stated, Xbase and flesh that area out more as a mini land with space and flight themed rides.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    A Centurion is also a military rocket launcher. Check out this news video and imagine the Centurion theming. I could see this as a fantastic theme for X-Base. Launched giga, anyone?
