  1. Disney World updates

    If you are going to Disney with your family, is $13-$24 a day really a deal breaker? Disney is not and never will be an inexpensive place to visit. I mean Kings Island charges $20 to drive through the equivalent of a gravel pit.
  2. Partial Roof Failure at Kalahari

    Those are absolutely terrible pictures, I don't know how you can claim to see anything in them.
  3. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    I'm not sure what the current standard is, but when I last worked in the park, in the summer, the characters were only allowed to be out 15 minutes at a time. They come out from the old Enchanted Theater/ Carnevil Building.
  4. 2018 Paramount's Kings Island

    There is a 0 percent chance this would have happened. Kings Island's attendance is top 20 in the United States, despite being a seasonal park.

    The 1997 flood hit 67 feet, about 6.5 feet higher than this years. US 50 was temporarily closed at Delta Avenue, but due to flash flooding.

    Son of Beast would have been refurbished, probably to a steel topped track, probably not RMC. Tomb Raider would have been updated to a new theme. IJ:ST would have been rethemed. They would have added more low cost, low capacity coasters.

    Riverbend floods almost every single year. Coney floods almost every single year. This is worse than usual, but still par for the course.

    River is projected to get up to 59.5".

    It's almost like this happens ever year... crazy.
  10. KI to Hire over 5,000 jobs for 2018

    I think that's pretty obvious. The department generally has enough people to cover all their needs, plus they'll have the area managers, who aren't assigned to a ride, plus full timers as back ups if need be. There are certain times in the season (when the park is open, but high schools are still in) that they will make accommodations for non-rides employees to be trained. For example, in one of my seasons in park services, I would spend the first couple hours of my shift driving Vortex, because I had been a supervisor at that ride for a while in the past, and I was familiar with it. I still underwent all the same training.

    I'm not sure if Drop Tower has the 18+ requirement to drive the ride like The Bat, but generally they try to reward the better employees by training them to drive or operate the main control panel of the ride. They will start by training the returners from the last year and then as staffing needs change, they will start training the new operators. Also, there will likely be opportunities for you to get sent to another ride group, which is a nice change of pace. Just come in with a positive attitude every day and it'll work out!
  12. What could 2018 bring KI

    I see it now. I hadn't watched the video, so I thought those might have been the motors. Whoops!
  13. What could 2018 bring KI

    Shocking to me that this ride has two trains at the same time. About the DB seats. People are going to be sitting in them all day, when are they going to get that hot? Other rides have black seats, it's going to be ok.

    If you are a teenager in need of a job I can't recommend Kings Island any more. It's one of the jobs where you can get what you put into it. It pays more than minimum wage and you can generally work as many hours as you want.
  15. Definitely a good chunk of space in that area.
