    The operator could never blast people from that area. Guests can only do that. The operator can only hit people from the area before it.

    No the operator can hit people there. I use to work there lol

    I guess John feels anytime a coaster goes down it is a crime lol.  Or they are used to stories being a crime here....

    Hey John is a Coaster lover like we all are, his stories are always interesting, and hes not a "crime reporter" lol

    Having been around KIC for almost 19 years I have seen a bunch of stuff here & throughout many sites.

    KIC It really is an extremely pleasant & knowledgeable fan base.  Members like: Shaggy, Terpy (his posts still make us smarter even today), BoddaH1994, Silver2005, flightoffear1996 and numerous others that I can't think of right now have contributed much in the past & some still contribute today.   Yes, there are differing opinions but if everyone thought the same way it would be boring (there is another site that is like this that anyone can Review).

    As disco2000 mentioned, enthusiast sites on FB are incredibly annoying:

    "Is the park busy?"

    "What is the weather like in July?"

    "Will this ride be running next month?"

    "Why isn't this ride running?"

    "Why is traffic backed up on the causeway?"

    ...the nauseating list goes on AND there are multiple questions DAILY for each.

    I think sites like KIC are currently viewed less due to not being as easily accessible on a phone as FB, Twitter etc.  Probably an app thing.  It's not a knock on KIC at all, it just is what it is.  KIC is a fantastic free site that will get more traction moving forward as FB gets clogged with useless crap.

    Now if a new coaster starts to get hinted, watch the traffic go up!

    BTW- any truth to DB getting struck by lightning Saturday??  It was rumored on FB.....

     

    Whats wrong with fb gropus?

    KICentral was started back in 2003 by Dane Thomas as a dedicated website to host pictures he took at Kings Island. Fast forward to 2022, KICentral is still a very active forum and continues to add to its main site the park news, and document the history of Kings Island. Media Director Brad Perdue for KICentral spent hundreds of hours over the last few years updating and reformatting the site's historical timeline (thanks to the help from KI historian members) and updating other pages on the main site. He continues to add thousands of pictures to its picture galleries every season so KICentral has a good collection of Kings Island history documented in picture format. KICentral is a unique park website as it not only has an extensive collection of past park history, but continues to document Kings Island as events and changes happen in real-time.

    After KIE decided to close the doors on KIExtreme, they were gracious enough to share with us their collection of pictures and park audio they called KITunes. KICentral has now built a page with the KITunes audio files and they can be found on our main site under the Park History menu called Past & Present Park Audio. https://KICentral.com/parkhistory/past-present-park-audio/.  We have imported all of the pictures as well, but being such an extensive collection it will take us some time to integrate them into the active galleries you see on our main site. 

    If you have old pictures or audio files you wish to share with KIC, you can submit them here:  https://KICentral.com/kic-photo-submission/

    KICentral thanks every one of you for your continued support of our website and your contribution to the forums!

    ^The times we do try to get KICers to meet up during events like opening and closing day, things like that, its usually just me, malem, IndyGuy, pianoman, and Chris (I forget his username here now), maybe gator every once in a while, and we're lucky to get one extra KICer to show up or meet up with us during the day.  KIC meet ups aren't what they used to be 7-8+ years ago.  

    I was there, but everyone post stuff on social media now days. Websites are just becoming a thing of the past for things like this, its sad but true. Coasterstock was a blast though!

    From Chef Major:

    Last year we added our pastry chef, Belen Caire. She and her team have outgrown where they’re working so what better way than to take the Sweet Spot, move her operation there, and let our guests come in and watch the making of all of our desserts and the production. We’re going to be changing some of the things that go into the case. All of our desserts are going to be made from scratch. If you walk into the Sweet Spot at any given time, you’re going to see how the desserts are made, the person that’s actually making these wonderful desserts.

    I'd venture that you won't find them any cheaper than they are online right now.  You can buy 1 day pass and I believe its good for any day you want, don't have to commit to a day at the moment.

    Some things to consider:

    How old are your grandsons?  Are you taking either of their parents along with them, or is this just a trip with grandma/grandpa?  have they ever been to KI, or something similar, and if so, do you know what kind of things they are willing/able to ride?

    Reason i ask, and I'll assume you are retired or in a situation where you can attend any day of the week that serves your purpose.  If you are limited to weekends, then you may want to consider fast passes if a) they will want to ride everything (and are tall enough) and b) you are willing to ride everything with them.

    If you go mid week, fast passes won't be needed, but have to wait in a few lines (though typically not too bad).

    If they are both on the younger side and you will be mostly limited to Planet Snoopy, another thing to consider is if what hours you would like to attend.  Planet Snoopy tends to clear out late in the evening.  If you are able to keep them up and in the park thru fireworks that last hour in PS can be a magical time where it feels like you have the whole area to yourself.  Woodstock express has often been walkon, and even stay in your seat and reride late in the evening as the remaining families head home or find spots to watch the firework show.

    If you plan to go all day, food passes might be a good plan, depending on the age of the boys, they might be able to split a meal.  My 5 & 8 year old could last year, my 13 year old....not so much, he would eat 2 meals on his own :)

    If they are tall enough for coasters and its something you want to do with them but they are apprehensive, spend some time checking out POVs on youtube so they can get a feel for what the ride is like.

    Have fun, some of my most cherished memories are watching the reactions of my kids the first time they got on a new ride and was able to sit shotgun with them for the experience.  Way better watching the joy on their faces than the ride itself.

    nice tips, i would say most people on here though have season passes

    I wonder when pass holder preview will be. It could be on April 15th or could it be the weekend before opening day like it was this year.

    i would assume that friday! and they usually have a friends and family day as well.
