  1. I really would like to the stage moved out of Festhaus.  There is nothing worse than waiting 20 minutes for your food and having a show come on when you are trying to eat and have no where to sit.  

  2. I wish they would make it an upcharge event.  The amount of crowds and unruley teens and adults for the matter make the park almost impossible to visit durnig this time.  When we go to the park in the fall we are always out of the gates by 5:00 for this reason.

    This is awesome news!  This is actually the best improvement they could make at the park IMO.   Kings Island's International Street has been way outdated and not-so-nice for a while.   Lack of shade. The hideous white picnic tables.   Tables right up against the walkways.
    King's Dominion's International Street is so much nicer that present KI.     Kings Dominion has lots of wonderful trees and lush landscaping.   There is shade EVERYWHERE.  There are nice umbrella tables by the fountain to sit, and they are separated from the walkways with landscape islands.  Let's hope that King's Islands ends up like this as well.   Lets hope the plant more TREES!

    King's Dominion International Street at Winterfest also blew way the Kings Island version.  It was much more immersive with the lights in the trees all above you wherever you were walking.  Although King's Island's Snowflake lake was better because it was lower in the ground and more visible.   

    It looks like they are taking the ugly pedestal fountains out.   Kings Dominion and Canada's Wonderland's fountains come directly out of the water, which is a much sleeker look.  Hopefully that is the case as well.

    I am soooo happy Cedar Fair bought these parks.   In the begin, I thought they would become generic parks because of the way Cedar Fair didn't care much about atmosphere or theming in the past.  But they are returning the Taft parks to their former glory after the destruction that Paramount did.

    The best thing is I would assume the parks are biggest part of Cedar Fair income so they actually care about them.  During the Paramount days it was hardly a drop in the bucket income wise for CBS.

  4. I wouldn't think it would pay for the park to relocate a ride as large as Congo Falls in-side the park.  You might as well build a new one at that point.  I would think yo could even add Invertago to the removal list.

    I tried that on Son of Beast (I rode it a ton in its original form between 2000 and 2006, with the Premier trains and loop) and it wasn't true in the slightest.  Other than testing that theory a handful of times, the only 2 'comfortable' seats, and the only rows I chose to ride it, were 1-1 and 1-2.  

    EDIT: BTW, even then, I could only tolerate riding it once, maybe twice, a visit, and that was in my teenage years and as healthy as ever. 

    I was able to ride Son  of Beast without issue.  The ride never really gave me any issues.  It is strange how to some its the roughest thing ever and to anther its not so bad.  

  6. I really think the park should discontinue the gold pass perks.  I mean pretty much everyone who has a season pass get a free upgrade to gold.  If it was a paid tiered program I would be all for it.

    For the people who haven't been around here a lot.  The park does own a lot of land headed down towards the river, but it is very steep and probably not suitable for building supports on without serious reinforcement.  You'll likely never see development all the way out there.

    They have built coasters on the side of mountains.  I would think if they want to they could put a support anywhere without much issue.  Walking paths however would be a different issue.

  8. I think it would be the parks goal to not have any stand by lines or very little ones if at possible.  If your standing in line your not spending money in the park and some queue lines take up massive amounts of land.  Think about this going to the the entrance scanning your season pass, ticket or cell phone and the kiosk tells you the link is currently 45 minutes and come back at whatever time.  Return during a certain window and scan your pass and be seated on the ride with 15 minutes.
