    Is Kings Island getting a Parade?

    How is a new parade connected to updating theming in Oktoberfest?

    Flight of Fear station audio

    It is not new. The operators normally talk over the recording.

    Winterfest 2018 Discussion Thread

    I wonder if the rumored Racer light package could be ready for Winterfest. If it's actually happening at all.

    The first engine will have to wait at the block light until the second engine clears the station. *Supposedly*

    Yes. Supposedly, both engines will be running on the weekends.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Dude chill. You're not creating a very welcoming environment. No one is impressed by you being rude to a fellow fan. Personally, I like when someone puts thought and effort into the ride's backstory. I thought it created nice suspense and hype for the coaster.

    Hopefully they at least pick a better soundtrack for the train this year.

    Looking at Banshee from Drop Tower would not provide a view of the dorms. That's more in the direction of a recently deceased bird...

    You're acting as if you have some right to know. Cedar Fair has absolutely no reason to keep the public informed about what they do or don't do with their assets. Seeing that they are dismantling instead of demolishing leads me to believe they either have a buyer lined up, or they are looking for a buyer. If someone offers more than it's worth in scrap metal, why not sell?

    Lol they aren't under oath. They can say whatever they want. They crafted a statement that communicated possibly disappointing news in the least offensive way possible.

    A lot goes into determining when a ride closes -- ridership, downtime, marketability, maintenance costs, possible renovation costs, staffing costs, real estate development opportunities, etc. It reached the end of it's service life for KI, but that doesn't mean someone else can't buy it, renovate it, and operate it. My guess is that a possible buyer would only be buying the track, supports, and trains. I assume that due to its age the control and logic systems are extremely outdated. I'm sure KI has made countless modifications over the years that probably just wouldn't work once disassembled. If a park picks it up for $8-$11 million, and they invest another couple million into completely redoing the electrical systems, they'd essentially have a brand new attraction on their hands for less than $15 million.

    It says Prickett. He's a Rides Manager.

    Banshee gift shop converted to arcade

    It is also the alternate access for guests requiring use of the elevator.

    Kings Island Confirms removal of Coaster

    That rubs me the wrong way.
