    International street makeover

    From the KI Blog: Kings Island’s International Street is set to receive its first complete makeover since the park opened in 1972. No element of International Street will be left untouched as crews update the Royal Fountain, install more than 130,000 new pavers, improve each building façade and enhance the landscaping. More details can be found on the the KI Blog here: https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2019/january/international-street-and-royal-fountain-to-get-major-offseason-renovation?fbclid=IwAR251DIOLgO6Xh04pHIq9Z4vVmo656i3rLX8vFOPoAgDoIxHdhgs-X9XQZQ

    International street makeover

    Wow! Never saw this coming! Between this and the return of the Antique Cars, this will be quite the memorable season!

    I wonder if we'll be seeing a return of this type of design http://www.cincinnativiews.net/kings_island.htm

    I really really hope they don’t cut down the I street trees. Other than that, SUPER exciting!!

    This is great! Hopefully the ambient music will go along with all of these wonderful updates.

    I feel like the park is going back to its 70s-80s roots with its look and charm. We've seen the return of some old attractions like The Bat, Winterfest, the Antique Cars, and now Racer and I-Street are getting some work done. I wonder if Cedar Fair and Kings Island are trying to bring back/mimic the success of the Taft Era.

    @SonofBaconatorI was thinking along the same lines. I think this summer Kings Island is going to hit some feels for the older generations.

    https://www.wcpo.com/news/crime/mason/kings-island-international-street-gets-facelift-before-spring-opening Looks like the Royal Fountain will be getting new LED lights and new nozzles. Hopefully the pedestals return as well. Curious to know what the more room in front of the Eiffel Tower for celebrations means. Are they taking out the bandstand, or pulling the midway closer to the base of the tower? I too hope they do not cut down all of the trees. I also hope that the seat walls return. It is a great place to grab a quick seat. I am excited to see what the finished product looks like. Is it April yet?

    They said families can get closer to the pools than before, hopefully that doesn't mean taking out the trees

    I bet they'll be untouched.... Something tells me they'll be needed again.

    I bet games and mech is where they need to increase per caps on us pass holders. That might be their target?

    Would like to see the Coney Mall sign return - when the concrete walkway was enlarged several years ago, the sign disappeared. Creative ways like at Haunt with portable concrete anchors or large flower pots could hold it

    Maybe they will install a bridge over the fountain to cross over instead of walking around the entire fountain. Great picture opportunities.

    Well, I thought this up, and figured it would make a great poll. So I made it. I would imagine most of us here like Kings Island, but a random thought popped up in my head: but which part of the Kings Island "Season" is the favorite? I have decided to break the operating season down into 4 sections... Early Season (April-May) Basically, this is from passholder preview night to around Memorial Day Weekend. The park has re-opened after being closed for months, yay! Time for first rides on the brand-new attractions! Crowds have not peaked due to most schools still being in session, but the employees also generally have yet to get into the swing of things. Only a few shows are playing at this point usually, and the waterpark and some water rides remain closed. Main Season (June-August) Summer is here, and the park has been open a few months now. The waterpark is open now, and most if not all of the live shows should be playing, and the employees should be getting used to their jobs at this point. However, the summer crowds generally begin to kick in around this time (until the end of August or so when school goes back), and it can get very, very hot. Haunt Season (September-October) Well, Waterpark is closed again. But now it is time for...Halloween Haunt! There are horror props all over the park, and the park is now open on Fridays and Saturdays until 1am- great for night rides. But, when the Sun goes down, the monsters come out. And so do the insane crowds on Saturdays. Winterfest (November-December) Most rides are closed, but in the past we couldn't even ride roller coasters in winter anyway. The horror props give way to beautiful Christmas Lights, and the park ups its show offerings with special holiday shows. It is also usually very cold. BRR!!! And well, that is my new poll: which of these 4 parts of the Kings Island season do you enjoy the most?

    For mazes: In my opinion, I think it’s time for Ugent Scare (and maybe Wolf Pack) to retire. Urgent Scare could be replaced with a new version of Carnevil to fit the Coney Maul Scare zone. Wolf Pack could be replaced with a whole new concept. Maybe one based off Banshee. Also, I hope they bring a better show to International Showplace Theater (maybe move Blood Drums there?!) & an all new show to the Kings Island Theater (maybe a Halloween cirque show?!) As for scare zones: Dance of the Macabre would use a lot of work making it more scary than just a random photo-op. They could execute this (no pun intended) by extending it all the way down International Street, adding a new opening ceremonies & show to the Bandstand. They could do so much with this theme! Coney Maul could use a lot more theming (maybe the lack of themeing was due to the construction of the Antique Cars. With this zone, they could have a new incarnation of Carnevil where Urgent Scare currently is. Based off the popularity of Pumpkin Eater, they could extend it more down toward Larosa’s & the splash down on Diamondback.

    Can't go wrong ever during this time of year. I will say I do enjoy the early part of main season. I really enjoy May and June when right at park close storms start to roll in. Seeing lightning in the far far distance with coaster hills in sight is amazing. Last season we were in line for MT at like 9:45 and I looked at the radar. Huge severe storms were about to roll in. I remember fast walking / jogging to the car. In the parking lot there was a fight between a group of teens and a grandma in a jazzy scooter and her family. Hilarious. Storms and Coasters are my favorite things.
