    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.
  3. 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

    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.
  10. I've shared on Point Buzz, but notice the boat at the dock on the far left side of the image....hmmm..

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    Speaking of hotels....notice how many hotels are being added to the area? One on Kings Island Drive...looks like one or two behind The Beach....I think there may be one being built on Fields Ertle...hmmm.
  12. Also in this pic is probably our first official view of the Firehawk-less sky behind Racer.

    Does anyone know the details of KI's relationship with Great Wolf Lodge? I mean, in theory it is exactly what you're talking about. I know they DO have a relationship, for sure. I'm guessing it is beneficial for both. I have never stayed at the Lodge---I can't afford it! Or I guess I'm just making different choices would be a better way to put it. The prices are right up there with Disney though.

    If people aren't coming for their current lineup, adding a Giga isn't going to move the needle as much as you think it is...

    Samesies haha I use mine to also hit up CP many many times a year as well as 1 other CF park each season.

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    I hear ya! I don't even care if it's a "destination park" or not. We live 3-hours away but prefer it over CP, for whatever reasons. We'll keep getting season passes whether they build a Giga or not. But I hope they do...eventually. :-)

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    I understand. Haha I just think maybe in the coming years if they want to add a hotel into the park like Cedar Point has. They could make bank on that as well. That way the park can offer thing's like ERT for hotel guests who do not have season passes. I agree and disagree that KI is a destination park currently haha

    Every destination has a budget! LOL.

    If Cedar Fair got another park

    Well that's good. Going over things I am not sure there is a park CF would be interested in buying then.

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    Sorry I was thinking real destination parks like Disney and Universal. I think if KI gets a giga it will be a destination park for enthusiasts like ourselves but maybe not family's with little ones. Idk maybe I am wrong. I just think of a destination having different options to stay in the park at their own hotels and so on.

    I don't disagree with you!
  22. First portion of the map revealed today. Seems really cool if you ask me. It is for sure a choose your own adventure. I think this may turn out to be pretty cool. Slightly thrilling as well if the bridge bounces in the water. Don't fall into Snake Rover Swamp! https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog/the-first-map-reveal

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    I just remember seeing Intimidator on Travel Channel back in the day. It was the Dale Earnhart ride, it was huge, it was getting lots of press. But that was a crowded time for Giga's, and so I think it was probably a "destination" for some, but not everybody. I still think if KI built a record-breaker it would turn a lot of heads. KI is very well-known, and its proximity to Cedar Park only enhances its "destination" status, I think.

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    I can kinda see that "at the time." But you'd think a ride that would make a park qualify as a destination park, that it would spar many return visits. Which at the same time, that park needs growth as well.

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    I would argue that briefly, at the time, yes it did. Kings Island has a way better rep than KD anyways, so not exactly an apples-apples comparison if KI were to put one in.
  26. Also there is no vert loop. Boring haha j/k

    Did the giga at Kings Dominion make it a destination park?
