  1. So, who bought the 499$ passes.

    Lol... it’s just an amusement park, not nirvana. I don’t think anyone in the region really considers it a lifetime quest, like going to Dizzyworld. It’s only a day out for fun. For me, if the lines are long it’s a no go. With a gold pass, I have all summer to ride the rides I want to ride. This year I’m planning on enjoying Haunt and Winterfest and summer is only an extra benefit.

    You actually rode through it In Cars similar to the antique taxis at Ki. It was very similar to a Disney Ride. I think the cars were made by ArrowDynamics. I also remember The Bat Cave ride. (Showing my age now) I had to have been 2 or 3 then. I remember riding into the cave and seeing a big bat somewhere near the middle then ending the ride with mannequins of Batman and Robbin... lol. I rode Lost River too but I couldn’t tell you anything about what was inside other than hearing people in boats talking as you floated past them in the dark.

    Bring back the Haunted House! “Welcome to the house of the dead.” I distinctly remember the booming voice and the crazy organ music. They surely have the blueprints hanging around somewhere.
  4. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    Diamondback, Banshee and Delirium we’re testing in the webcams! Ridetime is just around the corner!
  5. New Coney Historical Pictures

    You know, it would be cool to see one of those signs in Coney Mall at KI now for nostalgia sake.
  6. Kings Island Announces 2018 Changes

    Love it! Since we are talking nostalgia, they should have named it Top O’ the Mall, like the name of a restaurant once at a certain park that gave birth to Kings Island.
  7. New Coney Historical Pictures

    I’m absolutely obsessed with Coney pictures. I would love more pictures of the Lost River, especially the inside and the Haunted House. Those two rides are ones that that I would have loved to seen transferred to Kings Island.
  8. The Mystery of the Oktoberfest Bridge

    There was a bridge in Rivertown that went down the hill approximately where the entrance to Diamondback is currently located. To the right of the entrance was an arcade. It was a relatively wooded area near the lake. It seems like it was removed just before the last incarnation of the Paramount Winterfest and the Christmas Tree show display floated in that location after the event.
  9. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    There was a sign there the year before Drop Tower was installed that said something like Dropping in next year. Kind of like the one that was on the tower before the installation.

    Could be, after all it is a cartoon drawing... it’s just wishful thinking on my part. I guess I’m just hoping for more than Mac and barb... lol
  11. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Oddly enough, even though that building was on the 2017 map, I wonder why it is one of the only buildings on the 2017 map that doesn’t look similar to the current building like the other drawings do. Do you suppose it was a plan that never materialized? Also for some reason it looks very similar to a building Designed for Cedar Point to me. It would be interesting to see it actually pop up this year.
  12. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    You’re right. Just proves I never look at the maps anyway... lol
  13. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Now this brings up the question.... which one could be for a restaurant and which one for a shop? Or are our guesses off course all together? Things that make you go hmmmm...
  14. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    From the same map.... take a look at the Killmart building.
