  1. You Know It's the Off Season When...

    https://youtu.be/NGz8wk4EgMM ..... this is the extent of your entertainment
  2. Adams Family Coaster

    it was actually th1980s movie that was shown in the theater during FearFest... lol. Rivertown was supposed to actually be rethemed for all seasons, at least that’s what I remember hearing. It seems strange, but then again that was Paramount... . I could see The Beast is quite similar to the final chase scenes in the movie... lol
  3. Adams Family Coaster

    They actual showed the movie Friday the 13th in the paramount theater during FearFest. On a side note, I believe at one point that there was a consideration of retheming Rivertown to be Camp Crystal Lake. I can’t inagine what kind of rides they would theme into that area.
  4. Adams Family Coaster

    For one season of FearFest, before It became a Rivertown overlay, there was a haunt spring up building that was right next to the International Showplace in the field where the musical Christmas tree display was located for Winterfest this year and it was called Sleepy Hollow. It might have fit in well in that location. However i believe that the Addams Family coaster was in competition with BLSC and lost, so it may have gone in that location had it won.
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Just an observation. “Giga” is still in the snow on the MT camera view. If the park was upset about it being there, don’t you think they might shovel it out or throw salt on it? .... reminds me of a song “Let’s give em somthing to talk about.... a little mystery to figure out”

    Giga-dy, giga-dy, goo!
  7. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Who ever did it.... it’s a great PR stunt that got folks talking. Maybe “Giga” is the name of the new restaurant going into Coney Mall.
  8. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a salad bar where you tell an employee what you want and they add it to a romaine or iceberg salad all for a price of around $9. There is a restaurant downtown that sells salads that way and they are so good!
  9. Official: WinterFest 2017

    I was completely blown away with Winterfest. What I expected to be a one or two visit adventure turned into several weeks. I was so impressed. I enjoyed the hot chocolate and candies, the food sight and sounds. Every minute was truly building a memory. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for next year! The shows were fantastic and the kids in the shows truly enjoyed performing! It was just like the shows of the old Kings Island days. I want to thank those in charge of creating this event. From the tree lighting ceremony to last few minutes of the evening. It was a blast to come and explore and to make memories that will last a lifetime!

    I’d love to see more indoor or covered/heated areas. We missed a close call with very good weather this year, but tonight (the last night of the event) is going to be frigid! Any way to hop from indoors to indoors along the way would be fantastic! Whose going tonight? It’s bound to be incredibly beautiful with the snow covering the midways!!!
  12. Will Coney Mall be Overhauled?

    There is a lot of “dead space” (no pun intended but perhaps recommended... I’d like to see a dark ride) between Killmart and SR&R. I’d expect to see some improvements and additions there before anywhere else in Coney Mall (present season 2018 not included... see construction on the west end).

    It would be wonderful if they could open them, but I think they can only operate with higher temperatures. I would love to see a “lodge” type spring-up building in the woods behind either the Crypt building or behind The Racer with comfortable setting around a Roaring fireplace where guests can enjoy an atmosphere similar to the Reds Grill sing along and watch it snow from the lodge windows. All would be Comfy and cozy having spiked drinks and singing carols.

    Take a look at the webcams! It looks so beautiful in the snow!
  15. Ideas for Future Winterfest Events

    Great idea! I could see several “new years” band stand venues throughout the park with live band performers like in nyc with a “ball drop” from the WindSeeker and have a year on top of the tower. Who knows, maybe next year...
