    Gravity - Kings Island Theater 2018

    I saw it last weekend and I thought it was incredible! Is this show run by All Wheels Sports? Parts of it with the bicycles reminded me of AWE at Cedar Point.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    How have your experiences been this year at RHOFG? I went Saturday evening and got stale chips. And 2 others in my group had the same while 1 in the group had crunchy chips. 1 in my group had cold food. We let the staff know what was wrong, they said they would address it. I'll give it another chance but one person in the group never wants to go back there again. It was around 8PM and I'm just chalking it up to being near the end of the day for them. I've had good experiences there in the past. I wonder if our experience was just a fluke.

    Current wait times

    I was just at the park last weekend, and I noticed there are no wait times at the queue entrances anymore. Did they remove those signs?

    New Hotel Being Built On Former KI Resort Site

    Good. That empty site was an eyesore. It's nice to see more lodging options become available. CP pushes themselves as a multi-day resort, and KI looks to be heading that direction.

    The Racer on Opening Day 2018

    Riding The Racer on Saturday, I noticed it was smooth as glass. Usually I expect a fairly rough ride. Good job to the crews that did the track work.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I ate there for both meals yesterday and I really liked it. For lunch I got pulled pork with mac and cheese while I got chicken with coleslaw for dinner. Both meals were really good. The chicken is filling. However, I didn't really care for the mac and cheese. I thought it was dry and bland. But I'm so happy I finally got the meal plan this year. It's well worth it.

    Weather next weekend

    It sure looked it would be a washout yesterday, but I was proven wrong. It was a great day to be at the park. It only rained for about an hour. I rode Mystic 4x, The Beast 3x, Banshee 2x, Diamondback 2x, Invertigo, BLSC, The Bat, FoF (the only one that had a weight, but I did that during the rain so that was expected), and a few flats. No way would I have been able to do that on a good weather opening day. The rain was just enough to keep the crowd away. Now Today would have been a washout, sucks for the company that rented the park today.

    Weather next weekend

    Looking at the radar, it looks like it will be a washout today.

    Weather next weekend

    Looking at the forecast, it's looking like rain and storms Saturday. I won't be able to make it Friday night for preview, which looks much better. But looks like the worst of the rain will be overnight Saturday into Sunday. I just hope it isn't a washout. I'm coming from 4 hours away and it's too late to reschedule now. I was looking at Weather Channel and they are notorious for making it sound way worse than it actually is.

    The spin wheel for Fast Lane.

    Yes. I used this on 2 occasions this year. I got FOTL for The Beast and Diamondback. I got Invertigo but just gave it away to some random person.

    The Story of Mystic Timbers (Spoilers)

    Do they change the songs in the shed? It seems like everytime I go, I hear a new song that I haven't heard before. Just yesterday I heard Cars by Gary Numan which I never heard before. And I haven't heard Maneater since Coasterstock weekend. The only constant song I've heard has been Total Eclipse of the Heart.

    Official: WinterFest 2017

    I visited last night and I thought it was incredible! Posting pictures doesn't even come close to capturing how great it was. It's something you have to be there to experience. I got the hot chocolate in a Beast mug, and 3 kinds of fudge. Their holiday fudges are incredible that I couldn't just pick one. The park was a little on the crowded side but I managed to do almost everything I wanted to. I got 3 MT rides by using the single rider line. It was worth the 3.5 hour drive. I'll be making it a tradition to go to Winterfest every year.
  13. I ended up getting 3 rides last night. It didn't feel too bad on the ride although it was a little chilly during one of my rides.
  14. Seeing that the high is 46 with sunny weather, snow won't be an issue either on Saturday.
  15. Looking at the forecast for this Saturday, looks like temps won't be an issue.
