  1. Yes, I will do that in a couple weeks...so I can be able to celebrate my 50th birthday (golden). My reviews from 2018 & 2019 for Winterfest has been outstanding and I do expect the 2021-2022 Winterfest to stay the same like 2018 and 2019.... I will shoot a photo of my birthday button in 2 weeks....
  2. Yeah, I'm thinking about coming up to Kings Island (Winterfest) for my 50th birthday in a couple weeks....
  3. Yes....good thinking. Would love to see a redesign of what Kings Island will look like.
  4. Yes, The Beast is getting new track work to make sure every ride goes smoother and less jerky.... I am sure it is going to take a while to get it back where it needs to be.
  5. Yes, he got the big cardboard cutout depicting the 1 millionth rider for Mystic Timbers along with the Mystic Timbers stuff he took home....so the answer is YES, he gets to keep everything.
  6. Definitely can't wait to celebrate Kings Island's 50th Anniversary.....This is going to get more exciting.....This is only the beginning.. Time flies....but only one big question: Where did time go? We will all soon going to see a lot of Kings Island 50th Anniversary stuff in the coming months....More surprises for the passholders (this includes me) are in store for 2022 so let's see what is coming on the way for the passholders.
  7. Seems right to be having Winterfest again for the 2021-2022 holiday season but definitely can't wait!! Would absolutely love to spend my 50th Birthday at the park for Winterfest in December...that'd be nice.
  8. Yeah, I could foresee this is going to happen anytime soon this week or next week....Who knows what happens? It's a wait and see what's coming.
  9. Nice! Tried to click on these above but there's caches... Fortunately I have my Mystic Timbers lanyard with me as my first lanyard in 2018 along with that on my 2018 bottle (my first one as Gold Pass Member)....definitely love this. But I have yet to ride Mystic Timbers when I lose weight and feel ready for roller coasters, I'm more than happy to do it.. The Mystic Timbers t-shirts are very nice looking......it's like this: #WHATSINTHESHED?
  10. That's exactly what crosses my mind about the rumors of seats flying off Orion.....well, it's really FALSE for that matter... The fact is that there have been some water bottles sitting on the seats during Orion's testing mode and I don't really see anything wrong with that. The seats are fine though.
  11. Yes, I think it would be a great idea to have options of what type of coasters Kings Island will have when it comes to replacing Vortex, Invertigo....I think a B&M dive coaster like Kings Mills Striker seems right to me. Mack double launch coaster similar to Copperhead Strike at Carowinds would be a second option.... Gerstlauer like Hangtime at KBF in Southern California sounds about right... These options are on the table. It would be nice to get one of those coasters that Kings Island may need.
  12. I think Kings Island needs to install new ride wait times signs throughout the park the same way as what Cedar Point does so I am hopeful it will be a good start for Kings Island to do that.
  13. Actually, good question....from what I saw on the news on TV although I was here at my house at the time when I heard something awful happening last week with people fighting in Coney Mall and I don't see any one filming the illegal POVs...but yeah the guy did film the brawl last week....It's sad that people don't behave...It's sad that people don't behave and I am supporting the idea of having chaperone policy at Kings Island and all other Cedar Fair parks....I'm all for it.
  14. Yeah I heard and I'm shocked to say the least to why these teens start a brawl and let me say this.....This isn't a smart solution to start a brawl like that. These teens who started the brawl needs to get locked up in jail and will be held accountable for sure...that's one. Two is that if they have passes, then the passes are going to get confiscated and ban those who start a brawl for life. I hope that Kings Island security staff, park police officers as well as Mason Police officers are OK and unharmed....although yeah, I'm worried about their safety....Safety does come to mind here. Really, I don't understand why would teens want to pick a fight but I do know that there were a lot of profanities including the F bombs... Fighting in theme parks like Kings Island doesn't solve anything and it makes matters worse....I have heard of similar incidents happened at Carowinds, Valleyfair and Kings Dominion as far as I'm concerned.
  15. Fortunately, I was able to spot it out with the NEW Kings Island 2021 park maps and it was evidently found at the front gate so I was able to score one last week...had no problems with that but I'm glad to report that the paper maps are back for 2021.
  16. The NEW 2021 Kings Island Park Map/Guides looks good....although I did print out a limited number of copies of the new KI Park Map/Guide (pdf copy via Adobe Acrobat Reader) at the library downtown earlier this afternoon so I know some people don't like seeing the maps electronically on smart phones because it makes it harder to read the map on where the rides are. I wouldn't be surprised if Kings Island and all of the Cedar Fair parks would return to paper maps again....but I'm not sure why they decided to phase it out for no apparent reason at all....That's what got me concerned.
  17. I agree and I can see where you're going with this so apparently, the idea sounds right to me so therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if I would envision something like this nearly like Maverick like coaster that Cedar Point has.....I have a feeling Kings Island might be going with that.
  18. Yeah, I miss The Vortex because I know Kings Island isn't the same anymore without Vortex....
  19. Yes, I would really like to see everything new like Cedar Point, Carowinds and Worlds of Fun that have already updated theirs.....but not ONLY Kings Island needs redesigning but Kings Dominion, Canada's Wonderland do need updates on the front gate entrances....I would NOT be surprised if I am able to see everything new....the sooner the better.
