  1. This new higher cost pass looks like it will be just more added confusion.

    Want to visit the park all year? Buy a gold pass! What's that... you wanna use it at every Cedar Fair park? Ok then get a platinum!!! But could I interest you in the prestige pass? It can get you even more perks, it also comes in a higher tier as well!

    Heard from an employee the other night that they will be carding people and under (18/21 not sure), you must be with an adult and they must have a cell phone on them at all times.

    Hope they really crack down and keep it fun and safe.



    I'd hope not, I am 18 (19 in a few weeks), Me and my younger sister went to haunt for the first time last year and we loved it! We were only there for the night rides (We aren't that interested in the scare parts of it). It would be a real shame if I could not take her with me, it would take me 2 years to be able to do that again which would really suck. My mom is not into haunt so I would likely be the only person to be able to go. I certainly hope they continue to rely on their incredible security team. The amount of investment they have put into security should be enough to keep things from going down the drain. It's a shame because these policies put a harsh stigma on people. Even is policies are well taken for most people it still is hurting people wether you know it or not. I know this claim may not be true at all but seeing what Knotts is doing I would not be surprised if this comes to most all Cedar Fair parks.

  3. I would hate for this to happen, I as an avid Kings Island visitor along with my younger sister would be shut out from visiting the park together as I am between 18 and 20 years old, (Meaning I could come in but cannot be a *Chaperone*). The lack of such a system is why I love Cedar Fair parks. My hope is that this is just something mean't just as a band aid solution for Knotts, rather than a stepping stone for other parks in the chain, my assumptions are that since Knotts is located in California they naturally have higher operating costs such as staffing. With the recent events taking place there then likely adding more security is not economical so this decision was likely the only solution they could do for the time being. Again, all just my assumptions.

  4. I'd hope they do not give up hope for Timberwolf, if they would give it some restrooms and better seating I think it would be a better sell. At the current state it seems to have not been touched since spirit song 2019. A power washing would be nice too! Also one thing that could be improved would be the stage crew balcony right in the middle of the stands, with new technology it is certainly possible to have it moved to the back of the venue. It would open up lots more seating options. I have gone to spirit song every year since 2016, it's a great theater that has potential! I've loved it every time I've been there, it would be a shame to lose such a unique venue. Hopefully the park can use feedback to help improve it for future generations to come!

    I have it on good authority from an insider that Slingshot was removed to be replaced with Top Thrill Dragster.  It will be a compacted version, of course.

    What an amazing discovery, I also heard a few hours ago from a totally legit source that Orion will be moved to Knotts to make way for wicked twister \j

    In all seriousness though I hope we see some more activity over in that section, It would be a huge win if we could get an improved Oktoberfest section!

    Note that the train isn't slowing down to a crawl at the crest of the lift like it used to. From this angle it's hard to tell if there are trims present on the first drop. However, I timed this video with another POV on YouTube, and both trains arrived at the top of the lift at the exact same time. Take that for what you will.

    I would just love to ride a Beast in which the first and second drops are untrimmed and have airtime lol. I was hoping this Gravity Group project would put some more speed into the ride, but so far that doesn't seem to be the case. I remember the first blog post specifically says the changes are not to make the ride faster, just smoother. I'm sure there's still a lot of testing left to do though so we'll see how KI decides to have it run.

    When watching it in person on Sunday, it did not look like any breaks had been used on the drop. It just went down really quickly.

    Now the neighbors will be complaining about concerts instead of coasters. Lol

    Honestly, if you choose to live so close to an amusement park you should know what you are getting yourself into. That's what I don't understand about the people who complain. I would love to live that close, I wouldn't mind the noise at all!
