  1. Are the posters maybe a hint that they are taking out Invertigo?
  2. The Grand Canivale parade got delayed to about 9pm because of rain. Cool we got to see it with the sun down.
  3. Three trains running right now, though a train just stopped for a while on the lift hill. Back up and running now.
  4. Just got off Mystic Timbers. Took about 30 minutes to get on. Hoping crowds die down as we get closer to night time.
  5. The sign was missing when I went Sunday evening.
  6. This is a good article I read from one of the personal finance sites I regularly frequent outlining how someone could eat 2 meals a day every day for about $160 by getting a season pass and dining plan at a year round Six Flags. Article Of course this wouldn't work as well at Kings Island, since it is not open year round, but you could certainly cut your food costs down if you live close to the park by getting the meal plan. I left the comment on the article where I figured the cost per meal would be about 70 cents per meal if you ate two meals per operating day.
  7. Might be good to consider you can get parking for $17 online. This way you get a truer number on costs.
  8. Question about Kings Island Season Passes: I am thinking about upgrading my Gold Pass to Platinum since my family is planning a trip to Carowinds during Memorial Day weekend. Will my Kings Island Platinum Pass be able to purchase Carowinds bring a friend tickets?
  9. @DonnaFan Check out this shirt by Cincy Shirts, it might be what you are looking for: Smurf Cone Shirt
  10. Congo Falls also says it is closed for the season. White Water Canyon says it is opening May 24. My guess is they just need to update the website.
  11. I really like that t-shirt, I just hate the fact there will probably be a stampede from the front to the back of the park on opening morning. I always envision someone tripping and getting stepped on, leading to a bad time. I don’t think anyone should have a bad experience at Kings Island. I do hope they sell the shirt in stores, though. I like the burnt orange color, really goes well with The Beast.
  12. I went to KD for the first time last September and was immensely disappointed the ride was not operating. I assured myself one day I would be able to ride it, but it doesn’t look like it will be so. At least I got to see the structure in person.
  13. The roller coaster at the New York, New York Hotel is the worst I’ve ever been on. I have never had to physically recover after a ride until I rode it. Had to sit down for a handful of minutes. Never going to ride again.
  14. Here is the Halloween Haunt 2018 Map. I tried to PM @IndyGuy4KI but I don't see where I can attach a PDF in a Private Message. 2018 Kings Island Halloween Haunt Map.pdf
  15. I wonder why they didn't include this in their announcements this summer? I would think this would have been a perfect pairing to announce with the Antique Cars. Kind of like a Coney Mall Makeover with the BBQ, Cars, and Racer Re-Track. Maybe they thought this would overshadow the Antique Cars announcement?
  16. Final Steel Vengeance (9) vs. The Beast (8)     3rd  Banshee (3) vs. Maverick (10) The Beast keeps hanging on!
  17. Tried the Pull-a-Part Cinnamon Bread from the Turkey Leg Stand last night. I thought it was pretty good! For some reason it was 50% off, plus it stacked with the Gold Pass 10% off. Overall, the park was really busy. About a 45 minute wait on both MT and FOC. Peanuts showplace was full for the What the Dickens first show of the night. The train was at full capacity when we rode. I would say it was a fantastic night for KI business wise.

  22. I went this past September and found the location of some of the rides to be odd. Intimidator 305, Backlot Stunt Coaster, and FOF are all part of the Safari Village section. Dominator is right by itself in the front of the park, with Planet Snoopy being in-between it and the rest of the park.
