  1. Hey man, I just want food that doesn’t bleed in my mouth. German food in Oktoberfest would be nice too.
  2. The Beast Roughness/jerking

    My tolerance has dramatically changed since I had first started going to Kings Island. For life of me I don’t understand the complaints about The Racer or The Beast.
  3. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I don't think there's really much of a reason to update the entrance. It's fine as is and there wouldn't really be much of a return on the investment. There are 100+ issues that could/should be addressed first.
  4. Ideas for the Crypt building?

    Wipe that ugly building out and put it a water ride! #makerivertownwetagain
  5. Adams Family Coaster

    Sort of. As far as Sleepy Hollow went, it essentially took up all of Rivertown and contained two "mazes" and one scare zone. I wouldn't say it had any direct link to the Tim Burton film aside from the obvious theme. I actually really enjoyed the whole area quite a bit. I do think they had some sort of Friday the 13th themed show in the then Paramount Theatre at one point.
  6. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Finally, someone who gets it. Thank you. Agree 100%.
  7. Ideas for Future Winterfest Events

    Let's make that happen. I'm actually headed there tomorrow.
  8. Ideas for Future Winterfest Events

    A good model train display would be a welcome addition in my book.

    Very impressed. Had a great time on Saturday and enjoyed the new setup (and driving by the lighthouse/landing). Plan on visiting again!
  10. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    The current state of the glockenspiel should be considered a crime. Edit: I'll be constructive instead of just complaining. I think the following could bring a much need facelift for Oktoberfest. 1. The Festhaus- Rip out the crappy, overpriced cafeteria food and replace it edible, overpriced German style cuisine. Have you ever been to the Hofbrauhaus in Newport, KY on a weekend? The place is packed and it's wonderful. A very entertaining and different experience featuring good beer, delicious food, and live German music. This could be the seemingly absent sit down restaurant in Kings Island's food lineup. This would require serious management and training in order for it to be successful. But with the current state of things... Eh. Who knows. Also, as noted above, give the building some TLC and restore the glockenspiel. Sheesh. Show a little pride. 2. Hanks Burrito Hack (err... Shack.)- One of the great mysteries of the universe is why Kings Island seems hell bent on dropping restaurants in Oktoberfest that have nothing to do with Oktoberfest. I mean you have Chinese, Mexican, and so forth. But no German food. It's like walking around the World Showcase at Epcot and except it's not because it's horrible. This would be a prime location for a nice German style bakery that could sell baked goods and pretzels that weren't warmed in a microwave earlier in the week and left in one of those spiny glass cases. 3. The *whoever sponsors it* Beir Garden- This wouldn't need too much of a change. Just keep a nice rotation of beers going with a nice menu of shareable German inspired appetizers and items from the above mentioned bakery. 4. Flat Ride Expansion - Time to say bye to the Slingshot and hello to a big ol' Ferris Wheel with an awe inspiring lighting package. On the chopping block next would be the ladder game. Replace that with a mild to medium, family friendly flat ride with a festive German theme. If this would requires sacrificing the Coney Mall Basketball Challenge, I won't lose sleep. 5. Adventure Express - I think AE is the most underrated coaster in the park. It deserves some love. As much as I enjoy the original ride concept (purely due to nostalgia) I'd be fine if the ride was re-themed and updated because it really needs it. It could be as simple as, "Black Forest Adventure Express." The existing architecture could be updated to reflect a more German/Barvarian feel as well as the tunnel theming. I don't think you'd have to go to crazy to make it work. It would just be nice to see the ride get some TLC and reflect its former glory. 6. Music and Atmosphere - Simple. German music and cool light packages, Maybe have some kind of interactive light show with the pond, fountain, and the (hypothetical) Ferris Wheel. Thats all, Folks!
  11. Christmas Nights of Lights- Coney Island

    Very excited to check this out this weekend!
  12. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Hopefully a much needed shift in quality!
  13. We all know? They "have" to? Echoing a past poster... I learn the darnest things here.
  14. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    I'd like to echo these concerns. I hope that in addition to the (potential) smokehouse they also revamp food service as a whole.
  15. Official: WinterFest 2017

    A Target by where I work already has lights out. It doesn't bother me too much: I think there's a practicality in purchasing a lot of Christmas stuff before Christmas.
