    USA Today Names KI Best Haunt

    So now the Cincinnati area can now lay claim to not only the best theme park haunt, but a newscaster who has won the Buckeye Newshawk Award 5 times and a Silver Sow Award! (Look it up kids!)

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I know that you are right...but for someone like me, who comes from out of state, I do not like wasting any time in guest services unless I am either really mad or really happy...I have limited time at the park.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I am surprised that there doesn’t seem to be a standard for the amount you are supposed to receive. Our Culvers & Dairy Queen both have scales to make sure that you are at least getting the minimum amount. The amount of the ice cream in cups at the park varies greatly. Whenever I see someone else with a large bowl of ice cream and mine is half their size I always wonder, is that person getting lucky or am I being screwed?!

    Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    I saw the “greenhouse” on Friday & Saturday and couldn’t figure out what it was for...then on Sunday I noticed what I thought was a statue. As I was walking up I thought to myself how lifelike it was...it threw me when the eyes were following me and I realized it was a real person. He was standing dead still and no one else was even paying attention to him. I took a couple of pictures and complimented him and then left. i still don’t understand why they would bury him behind that structure where more people couldn’t appreciate him.

    Haunt Expectations

    I know the "real" wall is gone...but last year they let you into the main area right at the foot of the fountain by the entrance...then before you were allowed down International Street all of the scareactors would come down each side of the fountain in a parade style to mingle with the guests. (But since the pre-show is now at the band stage I guess you answered my question...thanks. )

    I don’t know if I missed it, but is the park still doing the wall of monsters on Friday openings?

    No Day At Kings Island Is Complete Without...

    Wow! Being that Hanna-Barbera Land has not existed for around 13 years, all I have to say is let it go, holding onto that frustration for that long is not doing you any good!

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    I feel bad for anyone who liked it...but besides Invertigo it is the coaster I will miss the least.

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    Thanks for sharing, I am glad that you enjoy your job so much. When my nephew reached 48” he was so proud of himself when he got to ride Vortex for the first time. (I am sure it looks massive when you are young.)

    That ship sailed a LONG time ago!

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    I agree, it doesn’t make sense to me either...except for none of my family consider it a must ride when we go...but by the definition I think you might be onto something. Firehawk just doesn’t seem to fit the teaser...but maybe it’s Mustang Sally all over again!

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    The definition for a Vortex is: a mass of whirling fluid or air, especially a whirlpool or whirlwind. So wouldn’t “The air is eerily calm” teaser fit that better?

    History of the Haunt

    Gator, thanks for the info. I had forgotten some of those things...it brought back nice memories.
