  1. I said blog.. I meant forums... lol =)
  2. Ok, so I do find myself geeking out over the Phantom Theater poster!! =) It is pretty cool How about this.... if KI officials read this blog (do they? I don't know)... For 2023 and beyond.... I want to see the actual Phantom Theater ride return! A reboot of some sort, how 'bout it? You don't have to get rid of Boo Blasters, but bring back Phantom Theater, please!!
  3. You make a good point. I thought that Camp Cedar was owned/operated by a separate company... so the relationship between the two (Camp Cedar & KI) is fuzzy to me... but seeing the Camp advertised on KI's page blurs the line for sure...
  4. Was the Skyride shown in the Cincinnati Kids Brady Bunch episode? Is that the thing that ran parallel to International Street, above the fountain?
  5. Someone else mentioned more "carnival-type rides"...Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but I'd like to see more rides that truly anyone can ride.... There's kiddieland... And then there are the big coasters for adults But if you're an adult with some sort of bodily injury (think missing limbs, hip replacement, etc) - I'd imagine your options for a fun day at Kings Island are going to be limited to maybe Boo Blasters, Eiffel Tower, and the Carousel. So I'd like to see more rides that everyone can ride.... think Grandpa after he's fully recovered from a hip replacement or Grandma even if she takes heart pills & something that kids & teens would enjoy - something without cartoon theming...
  6. This is terrible. A ride COLLIDING...really?! Was anyone hurt? Are people ok? People STUCK on a ride... why did this happen? Long ride times. (3 hours?) I keep hearing that Kings Island has "amazing operations" - I'm not sure what to expect now based on these reports. If there's line jumping & a sense that the park is "in disarray" - that's concerning... I would think that last year's brawls at the Park would have been an opportunity for them to create a plan to respond to bad behavior. Guests should face the consequences for their own bad decisions... the Park should be able to deal with this at a moment's notice. Not looking back, but starting fresh THIS season. The whole off-season was a chance for them to think on this problem. Are they understaffed?
  7. Sweet dreams are made of this Annie Lennox lol
  8. I think I can understand where you're coming from. The pictures of Camp Cedar....they look like nice housing for a vacation stay. Nothing wrong with that, but that's not a campground. It's a much different experience than pitching a tent, sitting around a fire, making s'mores, sitting outside.... Perhaps you might enjoy camping at East Fork Lake for a day or two, & then making your way to KI the next day?
  9. I would expect some wear/fading over time, sure, but the first time you put it through the dishwasher? That's bad, really bad. I hadn't thought about what KI's return policy might be, but this makes me wonder! On a vacation a few years ago, I made a purchase from a shop that had a "no returns" policy.... which I initially thought was due to shoppers that were scammers.... nope, it was the owner that was a scammer! I bought a bag, and the straps broke off WHILE I WAS IN THE STORE! Immediately after I bought the item! The owner didn't want to exchange it or give me a refund... I did get my money back but won't ever shop from a place like that again.
  10. Re-open the International Restaurant. A lot of new, beautiful memories could be made there, dining with that amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. And talk about "park pride" - the older generations that remember eating there, or people who worked there - it could really be something special. It could be an amazing place to propose to that special someone, to spend New Year's Eve, or even renting it out for private parties (or heck, as a wedding venue).
  11. Thanks guys! Yeah, the mobile app shows that I have a pass.... and since I like to be super-safe, I'm going to take a print-out to prove what I purchased.
  12. Hey all, I haven't been to the park in years, but just in time for the 50th, I'm going! I bought my season pass, but I'm so confused. The official KI site doesn't answer my questions... *Will I get a physical pass? (An employee told me no, they don't send physical passes unless you ask for one. But there are pictures of physical passes on the site. So what is your pass if it isn't a piece of plastic?) *The mobile app - how am I supposed to process my pass if I don't have the activation code from the back of the pass, if I don't have something in hand? I got a confirmation email showing that I bought the gold pass, and the drink pass, but I don't have the letters and numbers from the back of a pass that are needed to "process" the pass. Am I supposed to go to guest services or something? *What does it mean to "process" your pass? The app shows what I bought, but it doesn't show that I have "processed" the pass... Thanks all!
