  1. Not sure of the time frame (as all the years run together anymore for me) but wasnt this the location of another similar food service location? I feel like there was a Cafe Parisienne? that served fresh baked pastries, breads, and desserts at one time.
  2. Yes. Saw a woman by The Beast with one. She was trying to hide it between drags but the smell was everywhere. The more disappointing part was watching the security guard walk right past her and keep on going.
  3. This. And what is the earliest that something goes in that spot? 2023? So you are looking at 3 full seasons with a big empty hole in a prime location. While I am sure there is a plan - it does seem odd to announce a removal with nothing imminent to take its place. When Firehawk left - everyone assumed it was for the 2020 project.
  4. These? I loved these when I was a kid (I'm old now) and no one seems to remember them. It seems as if there were several flavors shaped like the respective fruit? Orange, apple?
  5. Ugh! That building is an absolute eyesore. I was hoping the cars would encompass the icee building that's never open as well as this old arcade building. I am glad to see the return of this ride but I hope they don't cram it in a tiny space - it should be done right.
  6. One giant tray, a rope, and a couple employees who want an arm workout all summer. Done!
  7. It is interesting that "breaded chicken tenders, wraps, and salads" sounds similar to the menu selections at a well known chain restaurant that operates in the park. One that isnt necessarily open every day of the week....
  8. There used to be a ride in the kids area (my son rode it in roughly 03-04) that was basically a small handcart that the child propelled thru the course with their own power - using their arms to turn a crank. The problem was that any kid who was big enough to pedal it around the track was really too big to be riding it. So you ended up with tiny kids riding it who could not get it thru the whole course. So eventually the workers would have to come over to the child, bend over and push them the rest of the way thru the course. Even for 16-18 year old kids that had to be a very sore back at
  9. I am currently out 643.96 dollars that has not been put back in my account as of the end of business today. I had 3 charges and each one hit my account 12 times. Luckily for me my bank account had enough money to cover those charges (it doesn't always) but I am sure many people ended up with insufficient fund charges. I did speak to KI today and I am hoping the money is back in my account tomorrow morning but talk about a major inconvenience.
  10. Why do we park on driveways and drive on parkways?
  11. nhimes beat me to it. Was out at lunch and saw the crane but no visible work. Took a photo with my phone but it didnt turn out that great.
  12. It was testing about an hour ago.
  13. The riots over the shooting of Timothy Thomas (the Cincinnati race riots) were in April of 2001. That timing doesnt add up either.
  14. 2 that are still stuck in my head from the paramount years
  15. At 8:15, we went to get a blue ice cream in Planet Snoopy and after being given one cup of ice cream I was told that they were out of spoons. I was told that I could go to the hamburger place next door and get a fork to eat my ice cream with but that they were out of spoons and couldnt get anymore. Out of spoons on day one? Other than that we had fun but it was definitely crowded.
  16. This morning I watched Drop Tower start to wake from its long winter slumber. Interesting in that the whole "mechanism" slowly rose to the top, but then did not drop the seating bowl. It just came slowly back down the tower. Signs of life after a long winter. Every day my 4 year old asks me how many days until he can ride the "scary ride with the skeletons"!
  17. Settled. http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20110321/NEWS01/303210032/Son-Beast-injury-case-settled?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE
  18. I drove past the park on my way back from lunch. Saw what looked like men working on FD. I pulled into GWL parking area and sure enough I saw 3 guys with rollers working. And of course I had left my phone back in my office so no pictures.
  19. Drop Tower has been testing this morning. Perhaps they are trying to fix the "not spinning" issue.
  20. http://www.mysmartre...ustry-fun-club- I hear the company is wrestling with the debt load and its relatively bleeding red balance sheet. Are you saying their debt to asset ratio comes up a "little short"?
  21. CSI co-creator and executive producer Ann Donahue is a 1973 Loveland High School graduate. I would imagine she has been to Kings Island once or twice.
  22. For those who are interested in any movement around SOB, trains have been running for at least the last 20 minutes or so.
