  1. My biggest question with it is if it is for a 2024 project, why doesn't the notice of commencement say 2024? The Orion one said "2018, 2019, and 2020 additions and modifications to Kings Island Park" this one just says "2022 and 2023" meaning the work is to be completed in 2023.
  2. I think an extreme spinner would be a great addition. I wouldn't mind a Copperhead Strike though. I really enjoyed it when I went to Carowinds. One thing I will say about an Xtreme spinner is if KI adds one, don't get your hopes up that it would run like ride to happiness. I think knowing our CEO and GM, it would run with the magnet that Time Traveler does so it can appeal to more guests. Apparently, Ride To Happiness doesn't get that long of a line because of how crazy it is. I think it would make more business sense to run with the magnet on. Sucks for us enthusiasts though.
  3. If you look at the color key on the first page, the design that is on that circle thing that people think is a turn table is actually a concrete pad for attraction theming. Also, it looks to have multiple of those pads for theming throughout the layout so we're likely looking at theming props during the ride. Also, they seem to be doing concrete around the ride entrance instead of pavers. In fact, the only paver part is a small little plaza across from that circle thing. Also, I'm interested in the queue layout as it looks like the queue goes back behind the haunted house and snakes back to the station. Hopefully it gets the go ahead as it looks like an exciting project.
  4. Ikr we hear this every single year. Like how long has Timberwolf been rumored to be removed? Probably since Paramount owned the park. I think we should all accept that Timberwolf is likely not to be removed unless they absolutely need the space which Kings Island does not lack at all (there's literally a big empty hole in the back of the park that would be perfect for a multi launch). Plus, even if it's not every day or always big concerts, they still use Timberwolf for Music in the Parks as well as select events like Spirit Song or the concert series from last year, They also use the stage for WF/Haunt assembly. EDIT: Another thing I might add about the screenshot/link is there is no date set yet so don't take this like an official announcement. They have yet to post about it on their social medias. I'd take this as evidence pointing towards it returning, but not 100% confirmation. I just noticed the site changed from "Spirit Song will be back" to "see you in 2023". Very likely them getting the site ready for an announcement, but again nothing is confirmed until they announce it for themselves which if I were to recall, it was around this time in 2020 they announced the dates and the lineup for the 2020 festival which of course ended up getting canceled due to covid.
  5. Live nation is already used for Riverbend though. I'm sure the park has tried, but with how outdated the venue is no matter how many times they try to fix it up, I believe live nation themselves know that artists would choose Riverbend over Timberwolf. Plus Riverbend has more than twice the amount of capacity than TW especially with the large grass area.
  6. Straight from the Spirit Song website: Looks like it's back folks! https://www.spiritsongfest.com/
  7. The concrete for 72 was to fit with the flight base theme. Flight bases have concrete/blacktop.
  8. Concrete being dug up by Hanks (soon to be Enrique's) hopefully pavers being installed....
  9. Well it very well might. Didn't Mike point you out and aknowledge the idea at Coasterstock? He must really like the idea. Hopefully corporate agrees.
  10. I'd rather have the Crypt building be used for some sort of indoor ride that families can ride like a flying theater or what @Cedar Fair Fanboy always says, a vekoma madhouse. It would provide another Winterfest proof ride and another air conditioned ride to escape the heat or bad weather.
  11. Looks like digging by former Hanks (soon to be Enrique's) has started. There's a digging truck in the bottom left corner of the cam. Also, there looks to be work going on near Racer's exit and there are trucks behind the games building (former Skylab queue)
  12. Idk how it works, but I believe the Kings Island Inn kept the Kings Island name even when KI didn't own it.
  13. Gone way too soon. Was hoping he would eventually make another appearance at KI. Praying for his family.
  14. This will honestly fit better with Rivertown. Gives Diamondback a little more of a rustic look and no more McDonald's lift hill lol.
  15. They used to have a walking trail by The Beast many years ago. Also, the pathway from the leftover part of Dinos Alive that wasn't used by Orion is still there. Maybe if they want to, they can do something like Forbidden Frontier back there.
