  3. Probably not in the shops, since they moved them into the arcade as prizes (to be purchased with tickets) the last few weekends the park was open. I assume this was to get rid of them because #WhatsInTheShed will no longer be a pertinent question in approximately a month. Chances are there will be something similar in the shops though, and probably a plethora of new shirts to choose from.

  4. It's not the walk. Its the distance you must go with only one destination. A sentiment Thunderbird doesnt fully fit into with the food, drinks, restrooms, and one flat back there with it. Im used to the walk to The Bat but I do understand why some think the walk back isnt preferable. Thunderbird's walk is also really weird despite having other things and makes me hope they relocate hyena falls, utilize the old pilgrims plunge, and one day add more flats along that path

  9. Indyguy4KI and I bought our tickets this weekend - 4pm Beast tour. The 2pm slot was full. I will miss part of Friday morning as I'm flying back from Florida that morning. One of my niece's is graduating high school in Florida and I can't miss it. I'm glad I was able to figure out a way to celebrate her as well as attend Coasterstock. Edited to add- I brought my 13-year-old nephew the first year for his birthday present. As much as he was used to going to the park with me, it was a long and exhausting weekend for him. We arrived for the morning ERT time and ended up not stayi

  10. While it may seem strange, busy days at Coney are usually the days I love most to work. The time goes by quickly, there is never a dull moment, and it is fun to see the park so full with people. Busy days sure beat slow days when the park is slow and time drags on so slowly. Just as a friendly reminder to those that have been hired on at Kings Island. Remember to be careful what you post on here. Posting of anything which you are not authorized to do, can and will result in your termination.

  11. Think they would / could every put something else back that way? or even a few things? I like the walk, its a nice break while in the parks but maybe if there were other thing/s back that way it would attract more people to that area. Just a thought

  13. So for the check in on the first day do you HAVE to be there at 6:30 or can it be in-between 6:30 - 8:30 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Last year on Saturday I took the last Beast tour, and had an early lunch. This gave me a large enough gap to hop in my car and drive to my hotel and get an hour or two of sleep in a bed. The bad part is you loose your parking spot, but I feel like it was worth it and might try it again this year.

  15. I love this idea as a whole, minus the names you came up with for Action Zone. I do everything you have said & id call that area of the park Haunted Hill.

  16. I love how secluded the area is! You get some great photos of Banshee back there, also some nice views of Banshee from riding The Bat.

  17. Right?! I actually kinda like the little long walk it takes to get to The Bat. It almost feels like your not in the park anymore.

  18. As Terpy liked to say: Line length is not an indicator of popularity. To add my own two cents: Why? Assuming that each train or cycle is mostly full, there is functionally no difference in total ridership regardless of whether the ride typically has a 5-minute wait or a 45-minute wait, because the number of trains/cycles dispatched per hour is not affected by the line length. The same number of people are riding it either way; the only difference is that many people think one ride isn't worth losing more than 5 minutes in line, while many people think the other ride is worth losing 45 min

  19. Realistically speaking, CF would only acquire a new park for two reasons (IMO): 1) Some theme park chain is selling all of their parks in which they get some sort of "deal" 2) There is one specific location that has zero competition and a lot of traffic. Now reasons 1 & 2 would only be beneficial if the parks CF were acquiring had very little investment to get the park up and running the way they would like. As an example I don't see them trying to acquire a park like SF: New Orleans any time soon, but I could see them taking something like Holiday World (It would never hap

  20. Cedar Fair buying the Busch Parks would scare me. I don't want them getting rid of the animals in Tampa. I like competition. But Cedar Fair really would be smart to buy a park they can operate year round. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. Not to mention, that Thunderbird has a food stand, restrooms, and even a flat ride back by it. I would imagine that eventually, they will add another couple of rides out by Thunderbird.

  23. I did to. On Sunday. Right up front in the Preferred Parking. I'm sure there were some folks wondering what in the world is wrong with this guy. I was SO tired.

  25. My son (currently 11 years old) is a platinum pass holder and I have not taken him the last few years for I do not think he can handle the very long days. On a regular day he is dragging 7 to 8 PM. If she can handle the long days I say she would really enjoy it. There are some younger ones there I have noticed, but not a lot. Welcome to KIC by the way!

  26. New to the forums! (How did it take me this long to join?!) Hello all! I am considering taking my DD (who turns 8 on May 17) to Coasterstock as her gift. She crested 48" last year and has done every coaster that has come her way since then. Pretty sure she's at 52" now, so that opens us to even more options! She's also very curious and would love behind-the-scenes stuff and scavenger hunt, etc. What do you think? Would she enjoy? Do other littles ever attend? She'd be okay as the only kid, but would she be welcomed? Thanks for any perspectives/advice!

  30. I've only been to Coaster Stock once. That was last year. Does this event normally sell out? I have a buddy that wants to go and he has a CF Platinum Pass and he's getting a membership to GOCC so he can go. He won't be able to order tickets for Coaster Stock until mid-April. Will it be sold out by then or does KI even cap the event. Thx for the info guys.

  31. As far as rides leaving... I could see Congo Falls. Kind of a simple/boring/pointless ride. Would have been good if Banshee could have taken some of that road 'frontage.' The Bat could be refreshed 'big league' for the cost of new -floorless- trains. Not sure what all is involved in that but it would provide an awesome new experience for a 24 year old coaster. And yet... I see an end in site for Boo Blasters. They tend to not like keeping the theming operable anyway.

  32. I don't think The Bat will go because it's a fairly family friendly coaster. I'm a giant chicken when it comes to the big coasters, so I appreciate smaller ones like The Bat. The queue line to it though is absolutely ridiculous.

  33. If you can wait until May 19th or 20th without a cup/plan do so, but remember you run the risk of only getting a drink wristband or nothing Coasterstock weekend in relation to drinks. As Freaks said, last year they just gave us 2 tickets for 2 on-ride photos for that weekend. No one but the park is sure what's going to happen with FunPix as part of the welcome package. As a complete side note, I'm extremely excited for this event and cannot wait to see what all the park is going to do for us, even though they don't have to!

  34. Welllllll. Looks like I'll be doing Stock as well as Mania this year. Woohoo. Just bought my ticket and registered. Even if it is only one of the two days. 3 pm Beast tour for this poster.

  35. I am fairly sure you can check in at Guest Services any time that they don't have the check-in windows going. I know those who got them are understandably a little freaked out about emails concerning problems with matching registrations to orders, but I'm really happy they're being so proactive about it. It will make check-in a lot less stressful for everyone involved this year.

  36. I received the same email. I emailed her back with the names of the people registered and she promptly replied back that they found our registrations and we are good to go!

  38. Season Pass for sure if you've already got the FunPix program...but for those who don't it'll likely be a card. I wonder if there will be anything different for those who have it for all season already.

  39. You should be able to scan your card or season pass at the photo stations and get your photos. I was able to get my FunPix at Coastermania last year.

  40. Q... I was showing my mom the itinerary that is on the website for Coasterstock and she asked me about FunPix. I know it's KIs photography plan but how does it tie to CS? I was just curious since she asked and I didn't know lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  42. We are debating that! we would be going to HW Wednesday, stay or diving to Cincy Wednesday night then having Thursday as a day off or a driving day to Cincy. It'll depend if my fiancé get that day off. I have Wednesday's off always so it's not issue for me. but he has to X amount of hours a week not matter what, so it's hard for him to take off to many days in a row.

  45. OK, we just signed up and registered for Coaster Stock! This will be our first and I am super stoked to be going. We joined ACE last week and verified our schedule. My wife has to work on the 19th, so we might not be registering until that evening. We live about 1 1/2 away, but I was considering driving separate and my son and I can come earlier, but I will probably just wait till that evening. Thanks for all the great info on this thread everyone! You helped make the purchase/registration process a lot easier.

  46. Good to know! I have a special "Travel" folder in my home office files where I keep all my tickets / confirmations etc. I'll slap a sticky note on it about that just in case!

  47. Since there's a lot of time between now and the event, this is probably a good place to mention that you can re-print tickets from Kings Island's website if you misplace or destroy them. Just open the ticket store & use the menu at the top to find Order Lookup.

  49. It hasn't been as extravagant after 2014. Lunch is more like burgers and chicken than prime rib and shrimp. It's still a great event, though, especially (since 2016) with limited attendance keeping ERT lines short.
