    Action Zone

    There already is a stage in Action Zone. Some people want to replace it with a parking lot coaster.

    Just rode fronthe of Vortex (taking my aspirin now) and I have to say this. @VortexBFForever was driving and she is the smilingist operator I have seen all day. Can't tell if she is enjoying it or laughing at the rideas. LOL

    Not necessarily a say, but a do... While I was driving Vortex during the last hour of operation today, I saw a puff of smoke (or vape?) come up from a train I was bringing in. For the first time ever, I spieled "Just a friendly reminder that smoking is not allowed on any ride here at Kings Island...yep, I saw that!" The culprit had an "oops, you caught me" look as he exited. At least he was a good sport about it.

    Dress code in the park

    I've mentioned this before, but I'll say it again. Until the park polices YouTube, and any other video posting site, and asks for videos to be taken down, this will continue. Ride op's don't really have the ability, or the authority needed to catch/stop this. Remove the forum, the problem goes away. If you can't get those "likes" there is no reason to take the video

    Dress code in the park

    Oh my!!! Yeah, I was at the water park all day Monday and kept seeing the same woman with a black bathing two piece on and the top had, In HUGE white letters, “CUTE AF” - let me just say, it was no where near accurate. lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Guests Say The Darnest Things

    Not a guest but a ride op... We were riding AE last week and as we were pulling out of the station, the ride op said, "See you back here in about 2 minutes, unless we don't. We lost a train last week."

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    This response makes no sense to my comment. An Intanin coaster started your love of coasters, we get it. There is a first coaster for all of us. The overwhelming announcing it and over defending them is what other members are getting irritated with. At this point we all know your position on the subject. I am on day 3 of being at CP. The only coasters that we have had issues with down time have been the Intamin coasters. That does defend the park wanting to go with a B&M. I am not coming on KIC to go team B&M. Everyone has their favorites and that is fine.

    I went on The Bat yesterday, which is something I rarely do, an the ride op told us to enjoy our ride on Top Gun.

    Peanuts Sketch School

    Has anyone had the opportunity to do this? It starts at 2:30 and they do a different character every hour on the half hour. You also get to hear interesting facts about the Peanuts characters. It’s really well done and really fun! I highly recommend!! Bonus: it’s in the newly renovated Enchanted Theater! I’m no artist, but these are the ones I’ve done:

    Guests Say The Darnest Things

    I remember when I was little, there was a 30 on The Beast sign and I mistook for "3D" and I said "Is this ride in 3D? I don't want to ride it if it is" thinking about that just cracks me up

    Kings Island Steakhouse

    Do you think the international restaurant should be converted into a steakhouse. I think this would be a good investment for the patrons who eat steak. this had been at the back of my head since they had built the new BBQ place in Coney Mall. I came up with a perfect name for the steakhouse if it ever comes true. International Steakhouse of Kings Island.

    This was such a fun event. I think it’s the best coaster event of the season. Holiday World knocks it out of the park for this event. I love how they kept the park open an extra 30 minuets for us because lightning took away some of our time. I don’t have enough good things to say about the park, staff, & the food. It’s amazing literally having the park to yourself, well 300-400 other coaster enthusiasts. Best Event Ever!!!

    Ideas for the Crypt building?

    Boo Blasters is already a "Cave of Discovery" for the teenagers in the park.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I can not confirm a meeting of any sorts. All I saw in the picture I was sent (I was not at the park today) was Greg Scheid and someone else I did not recognize walking back by the flight commander pad. It is not out of the ordinary to see corporate staff at the park and doing their job. There is no need to get everyone excited and posting about it in the giga thread. Seeing them back there is interesting, but at this point means nothing.
