    MT's Shed, is it Adventure Express 2.0?

    Compare it to sitting in the brake tunnel on Racer or Beast. At least there is something to look at. Problem was in the lead-up they hyped it to be something real special and people got their hopes up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gravity - Kings Island Theater 2018

    We took in the 7PM shows both Friday 6/1, and Sunday 6/3. We loved it both times. My 3 and 5 year-old girls were mesmerized. Enjoyed the laser stuff. And the bike stunts were probably my favorite. Lead astronaut is superb. That balance act is top-notch, again. Two thumbs up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Funpix Video?

    We are new to Funpix this year (haven’t even used it yet), should we have a Funpix card to scan? Or is it on our Gold pass? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Music throughout the park

    Wife and I hung out at KI for a few hours today. Spent a good chunk of time just sitting on International Street and people watching. The music was GREAT. Noticed Dmitri Tiomkin “The High and the Mighty”, “Tara’s Theme” from Gone with the Wind, and the Angry Birds main theme. Good times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Meal Deals, and meal deals

    Wife and I stopped by Coney BBQ today for lunch. Both had pulled pork sammiches (one with Mac, one with fries). PLENTY of food, and pretty TASTY! We both were impressed. I mean, the BBQ sauce is pretty standard, but the meat was tender and full of flavor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Music throughout the park

    Really enjoyed the new Rivertown music, as well as the Instrumental music on I-Street. As a kid in the 1980’s, I remember you always heard bluegrass-y music (especially featuring the banjo) in Rivertown. This brought back a lot of good memories. I hope the park is learning the value of themed music for different areas of the park. It is not ideal to hear the same current mix of Pop music feed throughout the entire park (leave that for maybe Action Zone or something). Now, if we could get some Polka-ish music in the Oktoberfest area, and maybe some Golden Oldies on Coney Mall that’d be great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not sure if new, but first time I noticed the separate drink line one the left at RHOFG. Seems to speed things up at the food order point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not sure if still a thing, but 2 years ago Moerlein had lager you could only get at KI. It was called "Inversion". Pretty tasty. One day a buddy and I had a few of them out on the back patio at RHOFG, while watching DBack. Good times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Food Warning: Rivertown Potato Works

    I visit with my fam (wife, 4 y/o, 2 y/o) about once/week on average. We have the season food plan. There is a LOT of bad food in the park. It is pretty ridiculous. Of the many "chicken/fries" options, we find we have the best luck with Chicken Shack. Potato Works (Rivertown) isn't what it was back in the day. It misses more than it hits. The chicken is awful, and the fries aren't up to the tasty standard we enjoyed decades ago. Potato Works (Coney) needs to be razed. Juke Box Diner is TERRIBLE more often than not. Chic Fil A and Panda are the most consistent offerings for quality. The new joint in Soak City holds promise. We shall see. Same with Tom & Chee. LaRosa's is fairly good, fairly consistently. Same with Skyline. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rode Delirium a few times last week. Anyone noticing a pretty strong "shimmy"? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Meal Deals, and meal deals

    A group of us stopped to eat at Juke Box Diner yesterday (6/27) at about 5PM. Awful. Food was cold. Service was downright rude. ALL FOUR freestyle machines were out of ice (on a very cool day). Two of the machines were down entirely. Ridiculous. Employees just standing around. 4 hours later we had Larosa's on International Street. Very good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Kings island losing power often

    This apparently happened again today, at around 2PM. Becoming quite the issue for KI and Duke. Hope they can figure it out soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Where is Vince Guaraldi at the park?

    Last year they played it on the carousel in Planet Snoopy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2017 Gold & Platinum Passholder Preview Night

    Hit the traffic on 71 at 4:00PM. Into parking lot at 5PM. Through front gate by 5:30PM. Waited 30 minutes for a drink at Freestyle over by Burrito joint. Then 30 minutes for food at Potato Works by train. Sat down and ate, people watched, then entered MT line at 7:30PM. 4 hour wait. Ride was down on two separate occasions in that time, for about 30 minutes each. Loved the ride tho. Worth the wait for my group. Had a blast. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
