  2. We can only hope with the current park management emphasis seeming to be on “what is old is new again” (e.g. antique autos), maybe they can restore the Feathaus clock (which would be a show in itself that could be programmed to operate at select hours) and a remodel of the Festhaus (the bathrooms are in desperate need of updates). It is sad that park management made the decision to stop the clock at the end of the 2007 season. ”The Festhaus clock was working every 15 minutes until the end of the 2007 season at which point the VP's of the park decided that they wanted the attraction turne

  6. I know it's been a week since my first post in this thread, but I have thought that I should include what I said in my "longest post ever" on Facebook, since not everyone has a Facebook for their own reasons. I feel I didn't adequately explain a lot of what I got to experience this year on here yet, so here is the content of my Facebook post, slightly edited: I knew many adventures awaited when the clock struck midnight on the previous New Year’s Eve, but my anticipation still fell short. My second season as an associate at Kings Island seemed to take forever to arrive, but once it di

  8. That's how The Beast is in a way, it blends in with the terrain around it. I'm thinking a brighter green that reflects well in the sun will look great at the park.

  9. Sneaking into a Forgotten Disney World Ride (Epcot - Horizons) I highly recommend watching this video. It is 25 minutes long, but very much worth the time. The mini-documentary takes footage from two massive fans of Epcot's former Horizons attraction and their adventures sneaking off the ride to take a closer look at the sets full of animatronic and props. I watch a lot of YouTube videos and I must say, I have never been so entranced by one like this before. Not only is it exciting, but it is also emotional and invokes an extreme sense of nostalgia - even for me, who was not even born dur

  19. The biggest "thing" I see pointing to 2020, not including the commencement is, why didnt they just keep Firehawk up (not running, just not removed yet) another season like SoB? Why are they wanting to tear it down this quick?

Here is a rough top of my head time table for DB: Late 2007: suspicious work being done such as cutting down trees Early 2008: "splashdown" are completed, land clearing Core season: Teasers Early June: Station construction vertical construction Mid Summer : Announcement A few days after the announcement the first piece of track was installed.

  22. Make no mistake about it - Gold Pass perks are tantamount to season pass perks. Only a small percentage have a season pass, as you said, but there's a reason why people buy early... and the Gold benefits are why. The Gold Pass program is very advantageous for them.

  23. I really like the way Cedar Fair has headed with the Taft parks, especially after Paramount did so much damage. Each year at the parks seems to make that more solid. New attractions are being themed, family rides being added and Winterfest is my absolute favorite time of the year to attend. If one attends a lot, CF season passes with dining are a huge bargain. Although KI has some of the lowest food quality of any park I have attended. Winterfest this year was notably better than last year. More immersive lights in the trees. Hopefully they keep improving the lighting each year an

  25. Well, it was written by Bill Hanna, (Coney Islands and Kings Island own) Dennis Speigel, and Paul DeCourt. I’m assuming the song is under control of Hanna/Barbera.

  26. It gets to be too much like real life. Tons of unused buildings everywhere, right next to where they're building brand new buildings. Or is that just in Indianapolis? LOL

  27. Riding through there with "Linus and Lucy" among other Vince Guaraldi Peanuts themes would be very fitting. Make the entrance a giant version of Snoopy's dog house. Does Hanna Barberra have the rights to the old Enchanted Voyage melody? It's a very catchy tune when you listen to it.

  28. I agree. Since the Peanuts have basically every season covered, maybe KI could go back to the old “Enchanted Voyage” concept and you could ride through every Peanuts season spring to winter with the Linus and Lucy theme song playing.

  29. I like that idea, I think they should get rid of the game aspect of the ride and go back being just a dark ride but not with cheap cutouts but with actual animatronics like the Phantom Theater had.

  30. I have never heard that Carowinds was supposed to get the Intaming Giga that KD got. I also find Carowinds to be worth a trip without Fury 325. I still have not gotten down there since it was built, but have been to Carowinds numerous times (I went there back in 2001 for the first time). Same goes for Kings Dominion. I305 is not the only reason people go to that park. Volcano is a really unique and fun coaster. In the amusement park business, the parks have to invest in new things every year (or every couple of years) in order to keep guests coming back (to sustain current leve

  31. There is nothing wrong with believing one way or the other at this point. The documents submitted to the county are pretty good indicators, but things can change. KIC will not be making any official statement on this until we get official word from the park. Until then, it is all speculation and everyone can interpret as they wish.
