    By 2035 Kings Island Will Have What?

    I agree about corporate sponsorship. Money talks. I'm pro dome for shizzle. I may have been subconsciously influenced by @kingsislandfan1972's profile pic, but I pictured the Max Headroom scene in BTTF Part 2. I think all of the food services will be completely automated, whether it be assembly line style bots or a more humanoid AI. For some reason this concept for ride ops bothers me. Speaking of rides, I think the theming of future coasters and rides will be insanely awesome and ride experiences will be more immersive. I think we will see more indoor coasters. I do hope that VR doesn't take over everything. Back to snacks. I'm assuming everything will be portable and customizable. Perhaps a themed indoor sit down restaurant, maybe even a sweet new take on the IS restaurant or even better: a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower on that 50 foot deck. A girl can dream. Don't hate. PS - I'm thinking blue ice cream will be a thing forever.

    Favorite Past Ride

    I'm not a huge fan of water rides but I have fond memories as a kid marathoning KCKC. I'd also love to have another few spins on King Cobra. Defunct rides I never got to ride but would like to have had the opportunity include the Bavarian Beetle, Screamin Demon, Zodiac and Flight Commander.

    Rivertown Burger and Potato works

    As long as they don't mess with my taters, we are good. They're my favorite meal in the park.

    Ride Patches

    I wish we had patches! Also, better sticker selections. I love stickers! I'd love to see this magical coat of yours!

    Gravity - Kings Island Theater 2018

    I'm late to the party again, but I'm here to share my final thoughts on my Gravity experience this summer. Like I've said a million times before, I never imagined I'd fall in love with a show like I have Gravity. The KI Theatre was a lovely retreat from the weather, but even more so it was wonderful to become immersed in another world for thirty minutes at a time. If it was an all-day park day for me, it was nothing for me to watch three or four times a day (depending on the day of course). I connected with so many lovely people who also love the show. It was such a breath of fresh air, and this being my first season as a super fan as @Magenta Lizard calls us, I don't have previous seasons to compare it to. I've heard that some liked the past seasons more than this one. I've always been in love with space and when I was a kid I wanted to be an astronaut. I'm not sure if it was that, or the talented cast, or the thrills of the acts or what, but I enjoyed every minute of every show. @Lieutenant Phil and the rest of the cast brought their best every time. They pulled out all the stops with such energy and passion that as an audience member, you couldn't help but feel you had travelled to Planet 6328. Each act evolved and developed and was perfected as the weeks went by. I, for one, loved it when one of the characters would switch up their wording or do something a little different. The fact that they were having a blast, made us have a blast. The energy was infectious and uplifting. I'm looking forward to watching their journeys on social media, and would love to have them back next season! Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I was honored to participate in the blog meet up on the closing weekend of the show. We got a glimpse into what rehearsals look like and got to ask questions of the entertainment department and the cast. We got preferred seating during the show, and afterwards we were taken a few at a time backstage. We were able to greet the cast and see the green room and backstage areas. We were shown the video that Ariane had filmed and edited about the show. I'm so grateful to Kings Island and @DonHelbig not only for providing such wonderful entertainment for us, but also providing us this rich behind the scenes look at Gravity.

    Plus size riders, what can I ride?

    The only coaster with the longer restraints is Banshee rows 4 and 5. Also if you ask the ride op to pull up on the vest, you’ll have a much comfier ride. I’d say sure bets for sure are Adventure Express and Bat. Backlot is also a decent bet. Depending on how you carry your weight is what determines the fit. For example, I carry mine low, so restraints that attach between the legs can be uncomfortable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Kings Island 20th Anniversary Special

    That's so cool!!!! We should invite him back for a night ride on The Beast. I volunteer to host him.

    Possible clues for 2019 ?

    You know, I could get down with this. Just leave the OG alone.

    I know the one at The Beast has been there since at least the beginning of last season when I started returning to the park. The one at Mystic was for sure there at Winterfest, although I don't have proof. It may have even been there for Haunt or before.

    Question about Beast's entrance?

    I remember the shop. I also remember wonderful cool misters hanging from the corner of that little facade. I miss the paw prints.

    Kings Island 20th Anniversary Special

    I turned 10 in October of 1992. This was in the days where I'd stay up watching the original Beverly Hills, 90210, and all of the stars from the show were the coolest thing since sliced bread. I remember hearing about this special, and watching it "live" when it aired for the first time. It was then that I discovered the Smurf ride had been taken out and replaced with Phantom Theatre. I remember trying to always sit in the same seat as Jason did on the (now) Great Pumpkin Coaster. I still love watching the special now and again - it brings back so many good memories. This is the first KI I remember encountering as a kid.

    White Water Canyon Construction

    I didn't realize they had saved that loading platform! I wonder what that area would look like from above? Back then and now?

    That’s right! Gosh it’s been so long. Also, does Phantom/Scooby/Boo Blasters count? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
