  1. Kings Island's 2018 Operation Calendar

    Good reason for KI to add additional Platinum events. I’m guessing only a fraction of pass holders at KI are Platinum. It would be a selling point to get more people to upgrade.

    You could say that Platinum is the new Gold. But I’ve found the only advantage is you get admission to all parks and a 20% discount on food and merchandise. One could argue that they should add Platinum only extras like more ERT. Open the park an hour early for Platinum (like they already do at CP) and half our early for gold.

    I wish they’d put it all on one page. I like to get a screen shot so I can keep it handy.
  4. The Giga Speculation Thread

    No, they own to the river but can’t build all the way to it from my understanding. There’s approximately 680 acres to the property and only 330 developed. So lots of room. Oh, the green line is a bike trail on the other side of the river.
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Here’s a rough outline.
  6. Things that KI can improve on

    I’d say there is some theming, but not nearly as much as say Frontier Town at CP or some parts of Knotts. Someone asked me how those 2 parks compare to KI. I say CP has bigger rides and more theming than KI. KBF has smaller rides(except Ghost Rider, it’s like the big brother to Mystic Timbers) and much better theming. I’ll even go so far to say that parts of KBF felt like Disney. A lot of the rides had different costumes for the operators to wear. So while KI is very much an amusement park, it’s not much of a theme park anymore. The main thing I’d like see improved is the restrooms. There’s also some “dead spots” in the park that need something whether it’s a flat, a game, drink stand, etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I could see them leaving the lights up on the International Street buildings. Would be cool to be lit up during the summer. I don’t see a way to leave them in the trees though.
  8. Tips for Families

    Another option since you have 4 dining plans is to use 2 at a time and split food. That would allow you to eat smaller portions every 2 hours.

    It’s amazing. I was there Tuesday and everything was open but MT. I’d suggest getting a couple packs of hand warmers and extra heavy wool socks. Then you’ll be set.

    If you’re looking for this that said Winterfest, they’re $7 with the discount, but there’s only youth through adult L left. They could have sold a ton of these if they were advertising it or handing out a flyer at the gate. That’s how I found out about this one at Knott’s. I also saw a white long sleeved shirt with a big blueish Winterfest scene on it.

    This was probably the most amazing atmosphere you could have imagined for Winterfest. It’s cold, snow on everything and still snowing. So glad I made the trip tonight.

    MT will be a no go. Supposed to be 30-32 to run it. That’s above zero, not below. LOL

    I’m in the same boat tonight. The more I think about it, the less thrilled I am to get in the car to drive 1:15 just to drink some hot chocolate, eat and catch a few shows all while freezing.

    It looks as if “Harbor House” was possibly referring to the smokehouse in SC.

    So Knott’s has a cute shirt for their “Merry Farm”. (You’ll see me wearing this and/or one of the other 2 shirts I got out there last week at KI next year.) Has anyone seen something special for Winterfest?
