KIC Tourist

KIC Tourist (1/13)



  1. As for the nose bleed, I seriously doubt it was a height issue, due to my own personal experiences. I'm over 6' tall, and have gotten nose bleeds on both The Beast....and Diamondback. I've been prone to nose bleeds since I was about 10 years old. It always looks worse than it is and it doesn't hurt, it just happens sometimes. I'd be more inclined to think that's what could have happened. The last time I got one at KI was on Diamondback during Halloween Haunt. My friend and I were laughing at the end of the ride and I tasted blood, the worst part was he said he could taste it too! NASTY, but hilarious.... I was tempted to just let it go, throw my head back like I was passed out and see the horror on peoples faces when we rolled into the station. But I opted to use the rain that was falling (quite heavily at the time) to rinse off and held my nose. Got cleaned up and it stopped within about 2 minutes.
  2. Thanks for backing me up guys! HaHa. My mother says that she stands corrected. My sister says that she will forever remember it being the Big Chief. To use a quote I once heard, "You can't fix stupid!" Have a good nite!
  3. Ok, so I was looking the picture and thought it was great. My mother says it was called the Mousetrap and my sister says it was called the Big Chief. I told them both that there was at no time that it was called anything but the Bavarian Beetle. Started to begin a new topic about this but just thought I'd ask here. Anyone else know if other people's family members are confused? LOL!
  4. Surf Dog - 1 Diamondback - 1 BLSC - 1 Flight of Fear - 1 Beast - 1 Didn't get much riding done but had a great day. Saw "Way Too Much TV" and it was good.
  5. I'm amazed the people can't read beyond the first sentence of a post on this thread. Of course the bonfire thing was a joke, what I SAID in my post was that it's my thought that if it's not gonna operate, then it should go and let's get somehthing that does operate. I shudder to think what the insurance would cost to cover the ride if it was open, given the number of claims that are against it. I can't begin to imagine what the cost to tear it down, repair or rebuild it would be. It's just a shame to have it standing there not running.
  6. I was standing in front of Delirium Saturday afternoon looking at Son of Beast and had a thought... This year for Halloween Haunt, let's have the world's largest bonfire! I love SOB but if it's not gonna run, let's get rid of it and get something new. It was hysterical how many people I saw on Saturday trying to look at thier maps and figure out what ride it was and why they couldn't find it.
  7. I'm producing and directing a musical production of A Christmas Carol. We open on Dec. 4th! It's been fun so far, but come Jan. I'll be missing KI for sure!
  8. This is the first year, in over 20 years, that I did not carry a season pass for KI. I suppose I'll have to change my screen name. LOL My first and only trip to the park this season would have to be my favorite memory. It was a cool and rainy Friday night, Oct. 30th. My favorite memory of the night would have to be riding DB in the front seat in the rain. (it hurts btw) When we stopped my friend said that he thought he tasted blood... I looked around and discovered that my nose was bleeding and was running down my rain poncho. For a split second I was tempted to just let it bleed, throw my head back and act passed out. That would have energized the ride opps I'm sure. LOL But i didn't do it. I just let the rain wash it off and pinched my nose and it was stopped before we got into the station. It was a fun night and I must thank all my friends who traveled with me for a total of seven hours, on a bus that ran out of gas, to spend a cold, wet, crazy fun evening at my favorite place in the world! Happy off season everyone. And I WILL have a season pass for 2010. You can count on that!
  9. The big orange "pillow" building was the Kings Island Theater. Cinema 180 came after that orange building was gone. Cinema 180 was located near the restrooms that are outside Vortex's exit and was a beige color. The Cinema 180 building then became the laser tag. I remember going to KI as a pre-teen and going into Cinema 180 and it was SOOOO cold. You had to sit on the floor and watch this crazy movie that was projected on a dome screen. There were HUGE air conditioner vents that just about blew you away. LOL. I also remember going in there late one very hot day and falling asleep on the floor. I also remember riding the Enchanted Voyage and then the Smurfs Enchanted Voyage. Both were great rides.
  10. Maybe I missed this if there's already a thread about it, but was looking at the new park map today. I found it interesting that they have already decided that the wait time for DB will be long in the mornings. Of course everyone wants to ride whatever is the newest, biggest attraction so it's probably good advice. (I'm refering to the dialogue in the upper right hand corner of the map.)
  11. Hi all. I'm sorry to say that due to my work and weekend schedules I have not made it to HH this year... bummer. I may be able to drive over on Friday night (Halloween) Just wondering if anyone has been on Halloween night and what the crowds have been like in the past. I know that each year is different and so many circumstances can affect attendance but just wonding. Let me know if you've been and what you thought about being there on Halloween. Thanks!
  12. Was at the park last week. A lady and her kids in front of Thirll Seekers store on I.S. looking at the Coaster Dynamix model in the window. "Which one is that, mommy?", "Oh, that's the new one, the Saddleback!" Cracked me up!
  13. 4 hours for The Outer Limits FOF (As it was called back then) on its opening season. The line started at the E Tower, went around back of Carosel, down past Dogem, turned right and went all the way down to Vortex, turned around and headed back towards Zepher, then turned right and headed for the actual ride. After waiting 4 hours my dad was too tall to ride. That was a major bummer. It was still a great day at KI though.
  14. Kudos to all of you for keeping me very entertained on a hot day in July. This thread is hilarious and frustrating all at the same time. I would like to say that when at the park this past Monday, July 28, I did not purchase a wristband because I don't like to drink soda when it's so hot. Our family has Gold Passes, the couple that went with us does not have them. We had been at the park for about 30 mins or so when our friend walks over to us and shows us her wristband that she bought for unlimited drinks. I made a statement to her that I thought you had to have a pass to purchase them. I'm trying to call her now and find out where she bought it at because I didn't ask Monday, but the cashier told her about the deal and she bought one. WITHOUT BEING A PASSHOLDER. Later in the afternoon she said that she was going to get a drink. I gave her $8 to get me a bottled water and buy my daughter a small Sprite. When she came back I got $4 and change back. I asked what happened and she said that the cashier didn't charge her for either of the 20oz drinks because she had a wristband. He gave her two drinks becuase of one wristband. Is it stealing from the park when you TRY to pay for a drink and they don't charge you? I walked back to the stand to try and pay but didn't want to wait in the line so I didn't. This was at the drink/popcorn stand across from Dodgem at the corner of BLST. My thoughts are this. If you wanna get upset becuase people take advantage of the wristbands, then let's get some consistancy in the system and find a way to enforce the rules. Rules are only good if you use and enforce them. If you wanna get upset becuase the park assumes that you will be smart enough to get the fact that one wristband should work for one person, well you just need to go back to Kindergarden and learn about honesty again. Finally, I don't see why they wouldn't just change the policy to offer everyone who visits the wristbands. It would eliminate the need to "card" anyone and in the end I think they would make more money. Actually it would seem that this is already being offered to everyone as I yet have to hear of anyone being asked to produce a season pass to buy one. Have a great day!
