  1. The quarterly report didn’t seem that bad at all, not the gloom and doom some here were taking about. Increased revenue per guests is a major win for the chain.
  2. From what I’ve heard KI isn’t one of the parks whose performance has been bad, not sure how its chads fault for the entire chain performing poorly.
  3. The food during this years grand carnival has been the definition of mediocre imo. The parks food department is in a disappointing state.
  4. There has been a song playing on Banshees lift since the ride opened, often very quiet though and can be hard to hear.
  5. I’ve noticed a lot more surveys this year, glad to see the park cares about guest feedback.
  6. Interesting how seasonal events was one of the biggest ways the chain was planning on increasing revenue yet here we are with all these budgets for seasonal events. Bizarre strategy. Can’t wait to see haunt.
  7. Yep this is the biggest thing. I don’t follow the industry nearly as much as I used to so I can’t really say why attendance is down (although I feel like KI is NOT one of the parks that have a major drop). But I do know for parks like KI decreasing the quality of the product where such a large amount of revenue comes from the passholder base will only do more harm than good. Just look at how people on this forum feel about the current situation and passes. If die hard fans are disappointed with the park I can imagine how ****ed some guests will be when their little kids can’t ride anything after 9.
  8. Since this is a thread about communications I just wanna say I appreciate all the work Kyle did at his time at Kings Island, all the historic videos uploaded on the parks YouTube channel were fun watches! Wish the parks YT channel had more content.
  9. I’m guessing market research showed guests are more likely to just spend $100 on an add on then buying a $100 more expensive pass. I agree with others that this change doesn’t seem to benefit consumers at all besides it being $50 cheaper.
  10. Ouimet is still on the Cedar Fair board.
  11. Can they now give us water cups that aren’t super small now? Or even just the season pass refill cups
  12. This is beyond trashy. I remember one time when I visited Kings Island for my birthday one of buddies who had invited bailed on me, the park was kind enough to refund the ticket. Doubt they’d do the same if they’re trying to pull this.
  13. Yea it’s a blt, anyone know if that’s on the meal plan? edit it is edit 2 - not as good as the one in brewhouse it was very try hard to eat
  14. Also had it today; I thought it was decent but I feel like there was two much meat with there being 2 full side Pattie’s.
  15. Can’t wait to see how well this post ages.
  16. Had to leave literal hell with all these bugs, people said they were gnats but I’m not a bug expert.
  17. I think the fact they no longer infuse the water with any fruit and returned to the tiny water cups shows just how dedicated they are to provide prestige passholders a premium experience.
  18. Had the pub burger tonight, was very good. Brew house still blows out every other in-house restaurant at the park. Have not had a bad meal there once this season.
  19. Terrible capacity and thus far terrible reliability, real winner the park has on their hands. Dont get me wrong I’m happy they built a flat ride but I wish they had picked a better flat ride for the park.
  20. Most appetizing looking tea
  21. Thanks for the clarification, guess their website needs updated.
  22. So excited for all 60 people who get to ride it an hour you know the capacity is horrible if there’s no fastlane.
  23. Terrible idea imo, going to make regular line longer while devaluing the fastlane product.
  24. I think you summed up my feelings perfectly. The area feels like 85%, once they hopefully polish out the area with music & AE missing elements then it’ll really feel special. It’s a great step in the right direction and is by far the best themed area of the park.
  25. I will say the other day I saw security tell a few kids to get off the brick ledge / wall on the path connecting Rivertown & Coneymall so maybe security actually does care about people sticking to path.
