    KI Blog: The Beast gets its name 40 years ago today

    Yes! https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2019/february/in-honor-of-its-40th-anniversary-kings-island-has-brought-back-the-original-beast-trains-color-scheme?fbclid=IwAR0L29g_vpTGr1hgLp3IzbvVIupL8LTPz2fyZa-h8seerB--Y2dVs9bpIfI

    KI Blog: The Beast gets its name 40 years ago today

    Such a great ride I take it for granted. Will ride it a lot more this year. If Cincinnati had some sort of generic "top 10" list, The Beast would be on it. Right there with Skyline Chili, Pete Rose, etc. It's that important.

    Ride the front seat. It helps.

    X-base or not?

    My selfish hope is that they do nothing, and my 4th favorite KI coaster will be somewhat forgotten in 2019, leading to less lines and more rides for me:)

    Agree 100% and do miss the German food. Larosas and Panda in Bierhaus...make sense, lol. We eat before entering. I don't mind the price as that is sort of expected. But the lines and quality are just not acceptable 90% of the time, and we shouldn't be apologists for that fact.

    This is awesome! Brings me back to high school and working KI that summer.

    Nothing says "Festhaus" like Panda Express and Larosas!

    Expanding Action Zone

    Why relocate or remove rides when there is so much unused acreage owned by KI?

    Racer Track Work 2019

    2019 tip #1 - ride the blue side of Racer for a smoother ride. Got it!

    Racer Track Work 2019

    This makes me very happy. Love that ride, it deserves re-tracking and hopefully a nice new paint job at some point. I think the part is really valuing the importance and selling power of nostalgia by really spending some time and effort into revamping Coney Mall the past 2 years.

    Winterfest 2018 Discussion Thread

    I really hope they add additional hours! I was only able to attend one night but was blown away by it. You really need to have a game plan before going as there are so many things to do. Very much looking forward to it. The 2nd train is a must on the weekend...that was the only negative IMO.
  12. So, I am trying to plan a day with my kids where we ride as many rides as possible as many times as possible. My kids love it and thought it would be a fun thing to do as they aren't into the shows too much. I am imagining all the big rides as much as possible, but also the smaller rides a few times as well...everything from The Beast to Amazon Falls:) We will probably get fastlane+ for obvious reasons (unless it is super slow), but I had a few questions for you pros. 1. How are the Fast Lane lines on busy weekends? I assume they only sell a certain amount? I'd hate to buy these and find out it is still a 15+ minute wait due to it being a super busy day or something of the sort. 2. What's the most # of rides you've done in a day? Any advice on this? We did about 45 once last summer but think we can do better. 3. I know mornings are best for line avoidance, and knocking out Firehawk, FOF and BLSC makes sense early. Any other ideas?

    weather tomorrow

    As I look at the KI live video, Diamondback is a walk on right now. Man I wish I was in Mason right now.

    Dress code in the park

    I really, really wish the park would enforce this more. Parks attract some folks that wear stuff I just think is so very trashy and I don't want my kids to read or see. It's an amusement park, man. For kids...adults like us have an obligation not to dress, act and talk like you're auditioning for Springer. This made me LOL. Or 3 sizes too short...

    Guests Say The Darnest Things

    This Saturday I overheard a kid tell his friends, when discussing where to sit on The Racer, that the Red Racer is always faster. He had reasons and explained them but I didn't hear them. Smoother, maybe, but not faster:)
