    Yes, they are adding a food stand and it will be themed to fit with the area. I don't know about seating. Orion and Area 72 will be quite heavily themed. One of Mike Koontz's visions for Kings Island is to bring back theming and charm.

    That's great to hear. Imo if they don't do seating that will imo take away from the food stand. Imo if you build a food stand, you have to have an area where people can sit near the food stand and be able to eat the food.

  2. Yeah, I don't expect too many rides. My hope is since I joined ACE on Christmas that I'm able to go and get a ride on Orion (more if allowed) and then do the charity event that night (most likely). I know for MT, for the charity thing you had to raise $100 or more to attend.

    It's gonna look just like that, storm and meteor included.

    You know it would be kinda cool if they played some meteor shower or something on some TV screens in the queue for Orion and maybe FOF.

    I did see on Twitter there was some discussion/rumor of whether Kings Island would need to "cap" the number of ACE members who could attend media day (potentially using some sort of first come, first serve registration).  To me this seems a bit crazy considering how many were invited to Banshee's media day from multiple clubs, as well as the prerequisite of being an ACE member before the invite was announced. 

    Which the result of that for Banshee was I believe too many people which caused a pretty large line for Banshee. I've watched some media coverage from Banshee media day and the line looked pretty long.


  5. Ok I want to clarify something here. I made a mistake. I tend to get my directions mixed up. He did in fact say Mystic Timbers riders were on the right side of IS. Others were on the left. I apologise for that.

    So he was announcing this to everyone as they entered the park?   How does sending everyone in the wrong direction help with the chaos?  

    Check out this OVC video from opening day 2017, you can hear that guy in the background giving people some instructions on the loud speaker

    A park employee really said that?  Was he fired?

    No I believe he was told to do that. That was to help with the chaos of the hype of the new ride. He actually did not say it in that manner.

  8. I wonder if they'll bring that guy back from the MT preview day who used the microphone and gave direct instructions on the loud speaker. "If you are headed to MT go to the left side of international street, if you aren't go on the right side of IS."

    To look at the layout and stats and to remember that my friend's teacher said that it is impossible to go ninety miles per hour on a coaster because, scientifically, it will rip your face off :D

    I'm guessing that teacher doesn't know that there are multiple coasters that go over 90 and over 100 mph.

    I wonder if the underside of the roof will be planetarium style with the Orion constellation on it. 

    I don't know. It would me kinda tough to do that during the day, but I would like to see some nice LED's in the station and queue like Banshee.
