    Green boarding passes

    Green boarding passes are for guests who are unable to wait in the normal line due to a disability or other body injury. When they come to the ride OP/worker, thebassociate gives them a time that they can board. They take the current time and add the current wait time of the ride to it. It allows them to "stand in line" without actually waiting in the line. But they still have to wait as long as everyone else. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    ^^ The season drink plan is only good for soft drinks, but there are plenty of options other than soda. I really like the blueberry pomegranate Vitaminwater that's at the Coney BBQ fountain. ^ The dining plan prices are currently the same price online and at the park. The online processing fee is $0.99 for orders that only contain food voucher(s). Since you're going to the park right now, I would recommend buying it there so they can make sure it gets added to your pass immediately.

    Usually, if we a see a phone out, when they come back into the station, we ask them to delete what they took. Mystic Shed has a camera so we can usually tell when someone recording so we always ask them to delete the picture or video right infront of us.

    While not a dedicated gluten free facility, there is plenty at Coney BBQ that is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes they do and it's AWESOME, flavors I remember are lime, cherry, raspberry, grape, peach and my favorite strawberry. I love that it's sugar free, I get do thirsty and this is such a better option than soda.

    I’m glad you at least said something. The emotional trauma of bullying like this is far more damaging than the physical aspect. It’s the unknown emotional trauma, that parents don’t see that ends up leading to things like suicide. We don’t t know enough about it, but maybe what you did say will keep her from doing herself any harm. She is going to have to figure out that these ***holes aren’t her friends. I’d have left their crap in the middle of the park and gone by myself. Forget a locker. I hate this entitlement BS coming out of the younger generation. We have two boys 6 & 2. We spend many days of summer at KI, since my 2 year old is tall enough for some adult rides and loves RFYLCB & Scrambler, and my 6 year old wants to ride everything, except for all the big coasters. The only things they are entitled to is a safe and loving home, 3 meals a day and clothes, healthcare, and other necessities. They know that their behavior good or bad will dictate what other things they get to see and do. They also know that if they act up in public, Dad will get in their face about it, regardless of where we are and they will stop. They are taught to be friendly towards other kids and can find random people to play with in the park. Obviously, not all parents follow through with this. They want to be their child’s friend first, when they should be the parent first. You did what you could. Hopefully that’s enough.

    Can’t speak for Mystic, but from my experience on Banshee, Drop Tower and Bat we can stop the ride and tell them to put it away, if they don’t comply, typically we won’t go as far as taking them off of the train when it’s already been dispatched from the station, but we can let them know that security will be waiting for them when they come back. That’s when they stop laughing really quick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    From what I've heard, it's "again" not "still." I personally didn't check it out, although I believe I observed a sign saying one entree was the meal for dining. But, many people have said opening weekend Panda was enforcing one entree on dining. Now this weekend, new signage that says two entrees are included on dining. Hopefully, this is the option that will remain for the season. I suspect they got a ton of complaints from people who were still expecting two entrees like last year, opening weekend.

    New Music throughout the park

    Wife and I hung out at KI for a few hours today. Spent a good chunk of time just sitting on International Street and people watching. The music was GREAT. Noticed Dmitri Tiomkin “The High and the Mighty”, “Tara’s Theme” from Gone with the Wind, and the Angry Birds main theme. Good times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    **** ing idiots. Edit: The riders, not the ops. But I do wish security would do something about this. A good smackdown a couple of times (banning, charges, something) would spread quickly and MAYBE remove this idiocracy or at least lessen it.

    Let me restate my last post. We are done with B&M vs Intamin. It adds nothing to this thread. Any further posts will be removed.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I had Coney BBQ tonight and was very impressed with the meal itself. I had the pulled pork with the sidewinder fries. It was pretty good. Had the Carolina Mustard sauce which complemented the sauce well. I'll definitely be stopping back in throughout the season. Their other offerings looked amazing!

    Correct, to quote Ohio Revised Code Chapter 1711.551, “[Rider must] Refrain from behaving or acting in any manner that may cause injury or contribute to injuring himself or other people while occupying an amusement ride” and also “Heed all written warnings and directions that require a person to meet certain conditions or to refrain from certain actions regarding an amusement ride, as determined by rule by the director of agriculture”. So technically bringing your phone out on a ride is breaking two laws as well as breaking park rules. You could get kicked out of the park or worse, prosecuted for the crime you committed. Don’t be stupid. Keep your phone restrained when you ride any ride at Kings Island. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Today was my first Mystic Timbers ride. It taught me that huge hills and loops aren't so neccessary.

    Ya know, I'm feeling impressed so far by the reviews on here about the food offerings. Going to have to try the new Bar b Q joint this summer. A theme park with good food offerings is so often not common, and I'm excited to have it. It will probably be dinner for me though, I'm not into the big lunch meals on hot days!!

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I would agree @BoddaH1994. Although I felt there is some room for improvements, I was overall very happy with what we got. The chicken used at Hanks on Friday was awesome! Things are looking bright for KI food offerings.

    They never did it nightly. Only for the 4th. Ownership has nothing to do with it. In fact, Dominion did it last year for the 4th. There is a fall out zone required for any type of pyrotechnic in which spectators can not be present. All of this depends on the size of the product and manufacturers’ recommendations. The logistical problem is that you have to close the area under the tower, which is much easier said than done when there are tens of thousands of people in the park. This makes more sense at a park like Dominion than Kings Island. The Eiffel Tower likely would not experience downtime. In fact, it didn’t close at Dominion while we loaded the show during the day and they even kept it open during the show. Since the fireworks were on the front of the tower the back wasn’t in the fallout zone. Dominion, 4th of July 2017:

    Mac n cheese, coleslaw, baked beans, corn on the cob, fries and hush puppies. I think that was it. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk

    I think the theme they were trying to go for was Coney Island, so the Flying Scooters was the name for the Eagles at Coney and Round Up was the original name for Halleys Comet.
