  1. Haunt

    Last year my youngest was 11 and he was fine with it all and thought all the "gross" stuff was really funny. Not so sure he would have been fine with it at 10 however. His first introduction was at CP however (with Malem btw) and while the mazes are somewhat similar, the general atmosphere on the midways is not as dramatic as KI with all the fog machines. If you do take kids prepare yourself ahead of time that they may not like it and want to leave. You must be fine with that. With a group of kids it maybe helpful to have handheld electronics available to occupy to ones that are turned off so the others can continue on.
  2. All Season Fast Lane Available at Kings Island in 2018

    Nope. Way to little.
  3. All Season Fast Lane Available at Kings Island in 2018

    At least $2k for CP. There are already a ton of Gold VIP Tours full of teens up there.
  4. All Season Fast Lane Available at Kings Island in 2018

    This will not likely be a popular position but I think $500 for all season is WAY to cheap. $1000 minimum IMO.
  5. Pop music back on International Street

    Bieber is Canadian, wish he had stayed but I digress.
  6. Yogi's Final Farewell

    While the brand is accessible to kids I always felt Peanuts was really geared more to adults, at least the comic strip. Snoopy is the only character kids seem to care about.
  7. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I suppose height and body type make a difference. Despite Vortex beating the hell out of my youngest who will never ride it again, in a moment of temporary insanity I took a spin on it last month. My head sticks out above the restraints so there was no headbanging for me and that is the most important part. It was rough side to side and my neck was just slightly sore from it but not really bad. Had I ridden it in my 20's and 30's when I had neck issues I probably would have been in a world of hurt.
  8. What could 2018 bring KI

    There is a "moose out front" joke in there somewhere just dying to get out.
  9. Things that KI can improve on

    They just did update it, not for the better IMO. It may be more mobile friendly but they wiped most of useful content and made it extremely difficult to find anything.
  10. What could 2018 bring KI

    @shark6495 you have really jumped the shark this time. Do you have any idea how much it costs to pave a parking lot that size? A home driveway is a couple of grand. (Besides the potholes act as cheap speed bumps for all speed demons out to kill our kids) My volunteer hours go to a bit more worthy causes than multi billion dollar partnerships. (Scouts, Special Olympics, conservation projects, etc.)
  11. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Can someone explain what is so great about floorless? I just don't get it. With the exception of the headbanging right before the corkscrew Rougarou is an OK coaster but nothing about it being floorless feels special to me.
  12. What could 2018 bring KI

    I would be very surprised. When you have a product considered the best available (kids area) businesses tend not to give it away for free. But for all the people that have smaller children I hope so as well.
  13. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    Have they changed up Hanks from last year? Not been this year but before you would tell them what you wanted in your burrito or bowl and it was served off the steam table. Cold meat on a steam table is a big Health Dept. no no.
  14. Park CLOSED Friday 9/1/17

    The forecast call for temps to drop to 49F by 8PM in addition to the rain. I suspect that was the driving factor. Nobody but a few of our resident polar bears likes to be wet and cold. Hypothermia starts to be a concern in conditions like that especially with kids.
  15. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    We have a whole 15 page thread about Chipotle. Fun times.
