  1. I absolutely loved this station as a kid. It's one of my earliest memories of KI.
  2. Not a revelation to anyone, but the carnival games seem absolutely dead this year. I feel bad for the poor kids manning 2-3 games and begging people to play. I'd expect to see less of those in coming years. Maybe a tattoo shop in place of one. It seemed like everyone over 14 had multiple tats when we went on Sunday. Not exactly judging...just a mildly sarcastic observation:)
  3. Very good points, thanks everyone for sharing. My issue is not that people are afraid of them (for a variety of reasons, most I disagree with but respect). It's when people refuse to see obvious facts about just how safe and, as @lifetimecoaster mentioned, controlled. There is little"controlled" about, say, a morning commute on 75 for example. If it were some cheap carnival somewhere, sure, I get it. But this is a billion dollar corporation...even the slightest rumor of danger (Son of Beast) could compromise the ride or the entire park financially. The logic is so very ignorant. Excellent point! Great example. I was almost clipped by an a-hole this past Sunday who sped past everyone and cut into a long line of people turning left into the park from the northern entrance. I wanted to cuss him out but couldn't with all my kids in the car. That was far closer than anything inside the park. Great way to break it down as well, thanks.
  4. Thanks, I've said similar things, like riding SOB front row over and over back in the day, etc, and never got hurt. There is literally more accidents, per person, in a weekend on the roads than there is all year worldwide on coasters. They are extremely safe. Some men you just can't reach, lol.
  5. The won't ride it either way, lol. I just want to prove I'm right!
  6. Does anyone have any good articles or data they can share on just how safe new roller coasters are? The reason I ask is, I know they are extremely safe, and good parks like KI go to extreme lengths to make sure all coasters are safe and enjoyable. It is considerably more dangerous to ride in a car, for example. After watching Orion and showing it to family, friends and co-workers, the most common response is "NO WAY" or "THAT'S TOO DANGEROUS" which we know is factually incorrect. I'd like to enlighten my friends and family Thanks in advance!
  7. IMHO, I love the ride even though it is no Phantom Theater. And sometimes the guns work well, sometimes they don't. Bummer, but life is too short to worry about guns working on a silly little dark ride. Just enjoy the ride It seems to still draw a ton of riders, so I doubt the park will change it any time soon.
  8. Daily tickets. Sadly we could not get passes this year as we can't make a lot of trips. Thanks, I guess that would solve it.
  9. Seems simple enough, but does anyone know if there is a trick to this? I add the order ID, then my email. However, it just goes back to the "edit account" page and does not show my tickets? Tried this several times with no luck. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  10. Wow, I feel bad for anyone who went out there but understand the parks decision.
  11. How have the crowds looked with all this rain? Was thinking it might be a good day to make a trip on one of these "thunder showers off an on" days. Bummer when it is raining but when it is not, I bet it is a ghost town. Bad weather = less crowds.
  12. I wonder how all this rain is hurting attendance. In between raindrops I bet there's been some ghost towns there of late.
  13. For you regulars, just curious, has there been a major increase in ridership this year so far with the added promotion due to the anniversary year?
  14. This right here is a perfect and hilarious response.
  15. Curious why Action Theater is not used for shows at all?
  16. When walking into the front entrance, seeing the fountains and smelling that fresh air combined with the water from the fountains is a personal favorite of mine. That scent and scene hits you with "you just entered Kings Island and are about to have a great day"!
  17. Seriously. Boo Blasters didn't work and you had to grab ketchup off another table? And didn't get a dipping sauce? I hope you soon recover from this tragic event.
  18. Wait just a minute... An article on KI's official website says it's new restaurant is opening to RAVE REVIEWS?! YOU DON'T SAY!?!?
  19. As long as they never replace that way-too-long pre-ride video with that Pauly Shore looking dude in it that is so very 1990's, I'll be happy. It plays like a B-grade X-Files episode
  20. If you didn't know any better (rides aside and other clues), you could think these pictures are 30+ years old. Such a vintage vibe...I love it!
  21. With the removal of the Reds HOF grille, I doubt this will happen, but will you have Reds players (current or former) at the park in 2019? And if so can it be announced earlier?
  22. Larosa's Rivertown is my favorite Larosa's!
  23. Lurker chiming in... The mods of this site owe nothing to us. They may get some minor perks here and there, but they spend considerable time to maintain a site and social media presence. Abide by it or don't comment. As someone who volunteers for several religious and non-profit ventures, and coaches, I have ZERO tolerance for anyone who complains at someone who is doing something for someone else's benefit. If, say, we pay a fee to be part of this site, then complain away. Also, the internet is really big and you can find that info in many other places. This argument is dumb on many levels.
  24. So happy for the little improvements. Nostalgia sells and KI knows it!
