  1. I hate to bust anyone's bubble, but I just got off windseeker and stared at the old dinosaurs alive area the whole time I was on it. I saw not one bulldozer, tractor or shovel over there. All I saw was dirt from the old dino dig area. Sorry no giga construction over there.

  2. My boys have autism and we use the boarding pass if the line is over 20 minutes or so. I am not passing judgement on you @harmony29 but we do not request front row unless it is a relatively slow day. We only take it if it is offered to us. We have been offered it in the past and told the wait will be a bit longer. Although we may have opted for that a few times we generally just take whatever the ride op assignes. Front row is not all that important to my boys and there are plenty of days we go when they are easy to get. (Besides back row is generally better) My advise is request fro

  3. Thank you for trying to accommodate us Green sheet people! Vortex is one ride I cannot do, it's just too rough on my body. I truly wish other coasters did what you do, I suspect that some operators do because this doesn't happen every ride, just usually at least once a visit. I truly am not trying to start anything by requesting front row. During winterfest in fact they wanted to give us front row on Mystic Timbers and I freaked out, I was like no, just the middle please. Same with Beast, I want row 4 or 5 as it was less rough. Now that I've gotten to really like both coasters I've gotten bra

  4. Hello everyone! If you recall, last week after preview day, I said I was returning to Kings Island this week. AND I DID. Here is the trip report! But, before we get in the meat of the report, here is my new-for-2018-and-thus-only-just used last week tier ratings system! F- Garbage. I regret ever riding this and will not make the same mistake of ever riding it again! D- Mediocre. A disappointing, or painful ride, though there might be a little fun here. I might give a D-Tier ride a second chance but it is gonna need to be a walk-on or something. C- Average. A fun ride, but either

  5. I'm the same way. I always ask if they have a preference on where they sit. I'm at Mystic, and we tend to have a decent amount of green sheets come up our exit. If people want the front, the wait is usually longer, so we block the row off after the current line for the front, so they're waiting the same amount as everyone else. It's sad that people with green sheets have to deal with people getting mad at them. They're waiting the same as everyone else. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

  6. When I help guests with green sheets, I always ask what row they prefer (especially since many who ride Vortex often prefer a certain row/car on the train). Some request a specific row so I save that row for them on one of the next trains, while others say they are fine with any row. And when we save rows, we ask the guests next in line for those rows if they are okay with waiting an extra train and explain that we are saving these rows for guests who are unable to wait in the regular line but have waited the same amount of time, and generally they are okay with it. The only time I had a

  7. Well the line for the front row is generally longer so that’s probably why some people get more upset about it. The line for the ride might be 30 minutes and that’s how long you have to wait, but the people in the front row might have waited 45 minutes because of the extra line of people wanting that specific seat. However, I don’t think it should be that big of a problem. It’s not like tons of people are using the pass and one train cycle isn’t adding that much time.

  8. We are always asked which row we want and usually always do front row, we've never been told we cant. Why would you get upset if it's front row? I'm sorry but I have a real problem with this. We wait just as long as you do, it's not special treatment. In fact I wish I was "normal" and didn't have to do the ride pass for this very reason. It is quite upsetting that people cannot understand about people with challenges or disabilities. I would give anything to be able to stand in the normal line and not have people verbally attack me or give me dirty looks. I guess people don't understan

  9. 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

  11. I think a major problem is that the general public really doesn't understand how it works. It shouldn't be up to the people who need the green passes to explain or justify it, though. I think the park needs to post the policy somewhere prominent or do an information campaign, or something, both to let anyone who may need the accommodation know about it, and prevent people who don't need it from feeling like they're "getting cut." Even as much as I'm at the park, because I don't need the accommodation and haven't rode with someone who did, I didn't realize how they work either. I really di

  12. My thoughts exactly. I do my best to try and guest relate as much as possible because it really does make a difference in the day people have and their attitudes towards others. Plus, you get to meet new people, which is always fun. By the way harmony29 , as long as you’re having fun, that’s what really matters. Enjoying yourself really makes the day that much better and doing something you love should never be a painful experience to you or anyone. When you’re at the park, enjoy yourself as much as possible, because it’s your day to have fun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. I could ride Flight of Fear all day, but I'm picky when it comes to riding Firehawk. If the loading procedure, lift and brake run weren't so annoying with laying down, it'd be a bit better, even though it has the coolest loop in the park when it comes to G forces IMO. silver2005, who will get to see how B&M flyers compare to Vekomas this summer.

  15. ^^ 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.

  16. 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.

  18. That came out wrong. When I said I'm in pain it's because physically I am. But I'm in that pain if I'm sitting home as well. I've had friends ask me, how can you do roller coasters with your pain, my answer...because for that 2 or 3 minutes I'm on the ride I forget about that pain. Walking thru the park can be very challenging and I have to sit a lot but fortunately my husband is very understanding and we just go at a slow pace.

  19. I hope so too. This is my first year having the funpix and I'm having a ball with it. I love having all the different expressions for the different rides and it's something I will have for years to come. I never wanted to before because it seemed expensive to pay at once but this we I did the payment plan for passes and it wasn't much more to add that on there.

  20. People suck sometimes. One small thing could change their mood just like that. The best thing to counteract that would be for the associate to talk to them and tell them why they have to wait another train, and explain to them that it won’t be much longer before they board the train, and when they do it’ll be worth the wait. This usually seems to turn their mood around, now that they know it won’t be much longer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. That's the thing, it is a longer wait and I am totally fine with that. Up until this week, I only wanted middle on beast and Mystic Timbers. We only get front row because the operators ask us where we want to sit, and then are told it will be a few cycles, which is perfectly fine. Keep in mind the incident yesterday was when we boarded in the back on Diamondback. Im not trying to whine, I just wish people were more understanding of the situation.

  26. I went to Coney's bbq on opening day and loved it so much, we decided to go there for lunch and dinner. The first time I had the pulled pork sandwich with the macaroni and cheese. I loved the sandwich so much that when me and my gang went back, I decided to get the pulled pork by itself with the fries. Those fries, I forget what they are, but they were amazing too. I was thinking about getting the beans, but I didn't want to keep farting all day. Next time I go this summer, I will get the beans. Overall I'd say this is a great addition for Kings Island. Now when I go, it's a toss up for me of

  28. I just saw the new show for the first time last night. Wow, I absolutely love it. International Street has energy that I've never seen before. I can understand (and even agree with) complaints that it's not a reverent, romanticized ode to what International Street was intended to be, but I still really, really like what it is. It's very much in line with the clean minimalism the park has pursued during the Ouimet years. It's a simple thing done well. As I've said about Mystic's shed: if the park can keep it consistently good, I am here for it. I've had a "if I see it, I see it" attit

  30. 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.

  31. 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

  34. 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.

  44. I haven't had a chance to listen to the International Street playlist closely yet, but I could make out "Escape/ Chase/ Saying Goodbye" from ET by John Williams (Last season they played the end credit music which featured a segment of this piece) and "Harry's Wonderous World" from the Harry Potter movies, also by John Williams. My mother told me she heard the theme to "Exodus" by Ernest Gold. From what I've heard, the playlist is close to having similar music to the early days of the park.

  47. Well, it is a fact that some people, for various reasons, have accidentally ended up with multiple drink plans on a single pass, and have been able to use all of them at once. So that should not be an issue. I would imagine that dining plans might work similarly, but only the park can tell you for sure. (If I had to guess at why multiple drink plans on one pass are supported, it would be to allow a parent to have one for themselves and one for each of their kids, so that they can control how many sugary drinks the kids get, rather than the older kids having it on their own pass and g
