  1. Full update on safety protocols. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/welcoming-you-back Changes from Last Season: Reservations will only be required for visiting Soak City Water Park. Both Season Passholders and Single Day Ticketholders will need reservations for Soak City. Temperature checks for guests have been discontinued at the front gate. The health screen questionnaire will be conducted by associates at the front gate and will not be conducted through the Kings Island mobile app. There will be no limitations to ride capacity for most rides.

  6. Got my second covid-19 vaccine dose Saturday morning. Aside from a few side effects Sunday (very sore arm, low fever, headache, and a little nausea) I am fine now. Excited to be fully vaccinated.

  9. Hello everybody. I don't know how long it has been since I posted on here but I miss everybody. Have been kind of a hermit during this horrible year but am so thankful to have survived it. Got both of my shots and am ready to start riding again. Hope to see you all this Saturday for Season Pass weekend. ( I am assuming that there are a lot of new members on here.) PS are you still around Terpy? So miss your wit.

  10. An update of the continued work on The Racer. This brought a tear to my eye, https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2021/may/kings-island-brings-back-beloved-original-logo-on-racer-roller-coaster-trains?fbclid=IwAR0ES-Hi4V3GU6mBO4oBaTVjuOhyFwQOhrdDkRvD5RYZ-JZWmJVlyfmmZFo

  12. Asking if you've been vaccinated is NOT I repeat NOT a violation of HIPAA. HIPAA only governs your clinician, a hospital or others that provide your health care. I can't believe the number of people that believe this. My wife is a nurse and has her masters in research. If a nurse or doctor tells you about a patient's health information without the patients consent, THAT is a violation of HIPAA. https://healthblog.uofmhealth.org/wellness-prevention/who-has-a-right-to-ask-if-youre-vaccinated https://www.vox.com/recode/22363011/hipaa-not-hippa-explained-health-privacy

  13. Last line here states you do not have to wear masks on outdoor rides.. I have both shots so I'm glad we will not have to wear masks in the heat and looks like they will not be enforcing masks outdoors at all.

  14. Of course they did. If a plumber shows up at a park they will write a 6 page blog about how's it's for a new water coaster.

  15. One of the photos your are probably referring to was mine. I didn't post it as a social distancing observation. I posted it to discuss the 2021 season, as in the ride was officially running and we were in line. Now, it seems from your posts that you are not comfortable going to Kings Island at this point. Guess what? That is totally fine. No one is forcing anyone to go. Was the social distancing as good as it should have been? No. Did I feel uncomfortable at any point during the day? No. Here's why. I've gotten vaccinated. (I AM NOT STARTING A VACCINATION DEBATE. SIMPLY S

Brad (IndyGuy4KI) is joined by Don Helbig, who is the Area Manager of Digital Marketing at Kings Island. https://kicentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Episode-15-Don-Helbig-Racer-Updates.mp3 On this podcast we discuss the following: Don's time as a guest riding The Racer. How the park was able to market his achievements setting records on The Racer. How much did it cost him monetarily to take his first 10,000 rides on The Racer. How Coasterstock was born at Kings Island. What happened to the ACE walk back tours. Progress on the 2021 Racer track

  20. A little disappointed that they announced that they initially won’t do indoor shows, but other than that I’m very very happy with the changes. I went to Dollywood yesterday and they have similar protocols. It was so freeing to not wear a mask on the midways.

  21. This is definitely great news. We have both been vaccinated and I've been counting down the days until the season pass days. Just not sure if we'll wear masks in line or if we will discard them. All the "science" is pointing to minimal risk, as others have said, for outside venues and thus I will probably keep the mask in my pocket. I'm more excited about full train operations. The coasters can get back to cranking people through and lines will be more normal. Less than two weeks to go!!

  22. Dr. Fauci said yesterday that the risk from outdoor spread is "miniscule". I'm glad Cedar Fair is following the science. This is great news.

  27. Social distancing in the lines was pretty non existent. The park was putting reminders out, so they were doing their part.

  29. I never pull out the maps when I get them (I've been going to KI all my life, so I don't need it; there are also electronic maps everywhere). For me, it's what KIghostguy said. It's about collecting; it's a nostalgic thing. When I was a kid, the first thing I did when we got to the park was grab the map and unfold it to look for showtimes, find where the new ride was, etc. I like the idea that I can still do that, and I love that now my kids get just as excited about it. They may be inessential, but for some it's a big part of the experience.

  36. Covid is not lethal? Have you been living in a cave? I suppose you are one of those "Covid is no worse than the flu" people. There are tons of people that have serious side effects a YEAR after contacting this disease. The long term health effects will not be known for some time. Downplaying this virus is not helpful.

  38. ^The countries with $15 minimum wage and higher would like to disagree. They make it work fine, can't see why the US can't. There's also little if any correlation between prices of things and higher minimum wages.

  39. Super excited to not have to wear a mask outside all day every day I’m working, the heat will be much more bearable. I’ll still keep one in my pocket in the event that someone feels uncomfortable with me not wearing one, but I have a feeling that won’t happen much. I’m also assuming these guidelines apply to associates as well, but I suppose we’ll see. They did still give me two masks during processing yesterday, just like they did last season.

  42. As we inch closer and closer to May 15th, Kings Island fans anticipation for opening day is getting higher by the minute. With the the recent webcams coming back online, they are giving us a small peak of the action as Kings Island starts to come back alive for a new season of FUN. Most KICentral members and other park fans are so ready to drive through the toll booth, scan their pass at the turn styles, and walk onto International Street for the 2021 season. There is just a sense of happiness that comes over you when entering Kings Island. Your senses are transformed away from everyday l
