KIC Local (2/13)



  1. Went on Wednesday during all the rain, and ate at the Brewhouse. The Pub burger and tots were hot and fantastic. Ended up staying all day in the drizzle then ate at Hank's. Best chicken bowl I've had in quite awhile. Went over yesterday, and the family wanted the Brewhouse again tried the BBLT. Not my favorite as the bacon was too chewy. Must be crisp for a sandwich. However in all my trips, and meals yesterday was the only bad experience with a meal. I will stick with the cod sandwich and burger at Brewhouse.
  2. The Vortex was a wonderful coaster from its birth until about 2005. As technology advanced, and people started to enjoy different restraints and smoother tracks The Vortex became obsolete. I don't think it was a hated coaster, it just aged and peoples tastes changed. The skyline of KI is changed forever, and I will miss the only roller coaster to ever intimidate me.
  3. The vehicle I saw fit the description in the article. Such a tragic accident, and I feel awful for all involved.
  4. Last weekend we traveled to Atlanta to visit my sister who surprised us with Six Flags Memberships, and a trip to SFOG. I had never been to a Six Flags park, and was interested in seeing the DC theming. I really enjoyed the Gotham City and Metropolis Park areas. In my opinion they were very well done. The rest of park just kind of blended in with itself. The park is kind of hilly, and when approaching areas there are signs telling you the grade of the hill, to use caution. Rides We did not get to ride all the coasters, more on that later. However we rode Superman, Goliath, Dare Devil Dive, Great American Scream Machine, Blue Hawk, Twisted Cyclone, Dahlonega Mine Train, Justice League Battle for Metropolis, and Skyscreamer. Goliath was the groups favorite the speed and ejector air was fantastic. Rivals Diamondback as my favorite hyper. Dare Devil Dive was a lot of fun. The lift hill was unique, and the elements were smooth and fast. The capacity was very low however, and the line was slow moving. Superman was a lot of fun, and g forces were intense. Twisted Cyclone was fun, but some members of the group did not like it because it was no where near the intensity of Steel Vengeance. Operations were very slow, and it felt like you the guest was requiring too much from the ride operators to dispatch a train. It was a very unwelcoming experience. However they did not have a 2-3 click rule or seat belts on most rides which made it more enjoyable, and less stressful on my bigger frame. We did eat one meal, and it was a very slow , and seemed again we the guests were demanding too much out of the staff. We ordered 5 chicken finger baskets paid for 5, and received 3. After a brief discussion with an area manager, and showing our receipt did we finally receive the 2 other meals. Next time we will not bother with eating in the park. Shopping was a highlight all the employees were welcoming, and very helpful. They had a lot of shops throughout the park. Membership services was a great success the young man who helped us was informative, polite, and quick to service. They need 1000 more of him. Security was horrible, and as the park grew more busy it got very dangerous. We saw 3 fights in lines, and in the midways. The midways became full of teenagers who dared you to walk into them so they could fight you. Once I realized what was going on we left that is why we did not get all the credits. Upon exiting we saw one man attacked by 4-6 kids in the main midway, and the police had crime scene tape up near our car where a car had been stopped and the windows busted out. Overall we had fun, but it is not fun to go with your family when you have to be on guard. I doubt we ever return, and if we do I will make sure to have some friends come along just for protection in numbers. It is a beautiful park, but has problems. However Goliath and Dare Devil Dive are fun coasters.
  5. Today while running errands I passed Kings Island on I-71. I saw a crane behind Diamondback's turnaround. Does anyone have any idea what they could be working on?
  6. Usually in jail for trespassing on various Cedar Fair properties.
  7. Very excited to return to the parks! Have a Dorney KD trip planned as well.
  8. 19 trips for me. Absolutely love the back being snapped over the first drop, and the airtime on the hills. Hope to ride it every time next season when we visit.
  9. Just booked our trip to Michigan with a stop at Michigan's Adventure. Hopefully the park is opened in the second week of June.
  10. I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed Winterfest until the Facebook memories began popping up, and driving by. I really miss the slower atmosphere, and family time.
  11. Although I highly doubt we will ever stay there, it is a fantastic add for the area and Kings Island. Great job to all involved. Not a new ride, but Cedar Fair and Kings Island still made huge news in an odd year.
