  1. I share in someone else’s predict that that train “show” being brought back/revamped will be the nostalgic expenditure for the 50th season.
  2. Very interesting stories! My guess is there used to be a Dog Street. @TombraiderTy, this sounds like it up your alley. Kings Island used to be part of Deerfield until the 90s when they were annexed by Mason. My best guess is that responsibility for the cemetery didn’t go with it. Not sure if Deerfield actually tends the grounds or they pay Kings Island to do so. I’m leaning towards them paying KI since I’ve never seen anyone cutting the grass, so maybe KI’s stellar grounds crew takes care of it in the early morning hours when they do the rest of the park. Just a guess.
  3. ^ ...Often on private property. The idea of a cemetery came along later. So you’d have an arrangement like this or be buried in a graveyard*. I did not know that the cemetery was essentially lost. Just imagine if you were out hiking in the woods and you found an old, overgrown cemetery in the middle of the woods. How creepy would that be? *Fun fact: What is difference between a cemetery and a graveyard? A cemetery is a stand alone plot designated for burial while a graveyard serves the same function but is on the property of a church.
  4. I’ll take, “Things I didn’t know for $1,000, Alex.” The mysterious Dog Street Cemetery has been an unspoken part of Kings Island since the beginning. This is a great read if you like Kings Island history. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2020/october/50th-anniversary-series-kings-island-construction-uncovers-forgotten-cemetery
  5. Of all the ideas you listed I think the train thing is the most likely. In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked if that’s what they do.

  7. I agree, but I also have to admit that there’s also kind of a fun element associated with seeing what the “special” food items were for each food location. I saw several people crowded around the signs outside of each location, which kind of created an attraction in itself. Almost like, “I wonder what LaRosa’s is doing for this.” as you walk by. I have little doubt that this is making more money than Carnivale... simply because GC was rained out almost every day. I like both concepts, but in different ways. One thing I do like about this is if you’re into “tricks” or “trea
  8. My gf and I discussed the odd juxtaposition as well. What do you want for lunch at KI? Pizza? A burger? Soup of the day? Yeah, let’s have that!
  9. Lines much shorter today. The soup of the day (broccoli cheddar) with a baguette at the French Corner. It was sooo good!
  10. Could be first day or Saturday stuff. I’m going today and will report back the lines. The weather was also perfect which drew crowds. I’m going today and I’ll let you know if it’s bad.
  11. That’s what I thought too! Is that supposed to be Bender wearing a Halloween costume?
  12. This is like, the saddest thing I've ever read on here. I'm so sorry you're going through this. I hope your day with your sister is awesome!
  13. Legally covered, yes. Goodwill takes a hit, though. I think KI is much better about the whole closing early thing than almost every other seasonal park. It only happens about once a season, maybe a little more. Closing early because of rain simply leads to people being afraid to go on days when rain is predicted because they're afraid the park is going to close early, thus perpetuating the problem. To be honest, if KI's schedule were what it is this year (11-7, not necessarily opening in July) then I'd be pretty upset if next year wasn't included. It's always risky to buy this stuf
