    Kings Island 2019 Discussion

    PLEASE remodel the Chick-Fil-A building. That's where the employee breakroom is. It would be nice to see a complete remodel there, even though it got one in 2016.

    Dinos Alive and Xbase

    With the IS renovation, I'm sure that we're going to start seeing more renovations and upgrades in the future. My personal opinion is that CF is going to put a larger focus on making KI a destination, similar to their progress with Cedar Point. KI already has a HUGE base of regional passholders, so it'd be a safe gamble.

    Racer 2019?

    That's not a retrack, that's a redesign. And a very large renovation at that.

    Kings Mills Antique Autos Path Discussion

    Hey guys! First post in a long while. @kingsislandpr on Instagram just posted this photo the other day: As you can see, that's one of Racer's airtime hills in the back of its layout. It also happens to be the hill where the old Dinos/current FoS entrance is! I'm pretty sure this confirms that the 'tiques will pass under both sides of Racer and possibly edge into Firehawk's old tract (which would be a good reason for them to not show the layout of the new ride!) My theory: we'll get a more in-depth look at Kings Mills Antique Autos during Winterfest, especially with SR&R being open for WF.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Thank goodness, too. We've all seen how flooded the park can get in places when it rains really hard. Near WindSeeker/Vortex/old Dinos comes to mind.

    2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    It's definitely not big enough for WindSeeker without doubling the size of the platform. It's hard to tell from the ground, but I've been up there while working and there's just not enough room. Razing the mound might add enough room, but it's be pretty cozy with Racer, cozier than it is currently.

    KI to Hire over 5,000 jobs for 2018

    No. Call me timid, but I felt like that would be more trouble than it's worth. They were already banned from the park for 2-5 years (they varied), and I was a minor for the first two, so it'd involve my parents (who I'm not fond of), etc. Now, if they had actually attacked me, that'd be different.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Modern Vekomas are pretty sweet, I hear. They have a new track design they've been using for a few years and they seem a lot smoother. Haven't ridden one made in this decade though.

    KI to Hire over 5,000 jobs for 2018

    It was very tempting, but something even more satisfying is keeping your cool, calling security, and watching people get banned from the park for 2-3 years because of their behavior. I quite like my job and dealing with those situations just gives you some cred with the supervisors and area supervisors.

    KI to Hire over 5,000 jobs for 2018

    I've had people spit on my face three times, one time at each of the bagless rides. I can't believe how riled up about it people get. Mildly upset? I gotcha, I am too when I come to the park as a guest. But I'd never make such a scene that security has to drag me away.
  11. There was no discount in DA's first season, but I don't recall when it became discounted or free for gold/platinum pass holders.

    The Vortex Poll

    I feel like Vortex's plot is far enough away from Diamondback that it wouldn't matter. Also, I'd love a 200+ foot drop, but I doubt the lift would be that high - there's a lot of great usable terrain on just Vortex's plot, and even more behind it towards The Beast (if you've ever been on a behind-the-scenes tour of The Beast or been on the roads back there, you know exactly what I'm talking about). Potentially an even shorter lift if they decide to dig a tunnel for it (I can think of a certain spot in Vortex's plot which would make a great place for a tunnel).

    Expand X-Base?

    Very possible. Transplanting a SkyCoaster would be a piece of cake compared to a roller coaster (or just building one) and have a fraction of the problems (if any) of one.

    It's been a lil rainy here in Dayton, but nothing you can't brave to take decorations down.
  15. KI DA: 2011-2017 KD DA: 2012 -2018 Following this model, all the Dinosaurs Alives at CP, CW, and Dorney should also be closing, with the rest to close in 2019. I realize that 2 events =/= a trend, but it is interesting to think about. I can totally see a coaster going in almost all of the spots taken up by DA, especially Millenium Island.
