    Kings Island 2019 Discussion

    Yep, I like meals to be relaxed and comfortable. I can go to the mexican place or the skyline by the north entrance and have AC and a server for much less than in the park with none of the hassle. I'm still all for improving in-park meal options--but the only one I'd visit would be sit-down restaurants-and that would mainly be if it were just my wife and I. I'm admittedly a BBQ snob because I do my own, but just walking by the Coney BBQ it just reeked of over-cooked chicken..kinda off-putting.

    Could even have it vaguely geographically accurate: Paris/Western Europe (I street)->Octoberfest (Germany), then head farther 'east' into the deep dark Romanian/Transylvanian forrest

    I suppose I'm in the minority, but when I go to the park I have zero intentions of ever purchasing a full meal. We usually bring a picnic lunch and leave our cooler out by the gate...or eat on the way in or out at one of the many actual restaurants near by where you can actually sit down and relax. With kids especially, the in-park dining options are ridiculously over-priced for what you get. ICEEs, smurf-cones, funnel cakes, potato works fries---those are all classic treats that we will buy...meals not so much. That may change if they offer some real German food again.

    Great idea! AZ needs an infusion of trees anyway and this would be a great re-theme

    International street makeover

    Hope they don't get rid of all the trees. Trees add shade and ambiance that takes decades to get back. Hopefully they work them into the new layout.

    More universal honoring of the Icee coupons

    Expanding Action Zone

    Timberwolf and Invertigo can go-Would open up tons of space. Like to keep Congo Falls as it's a classic. Also would love to have a new coaster back between Banshee and The Bat, but I think that all hilly woods areas should have coasters. Whatever they do, that entire area needs more shade, trees, and theming. It really is the least attractive area of the park.

    Kings Island is adding dorms

    Destination launch coaster. Like TTD x2 (on going one way, one going the other). Huge launch into one giant airtime hill. By the time your butt is back in your seat you're sitting all the way across the park. Could work for employee transport from dorms too ;-)

    How was your 2018 season?

    This year was great. Visited CP with my wife after many years away. KI was great as our kids get a bit older. fathers day golf @ The Grizzly then meeting my family at the park was a highlight. My 6 year old is still just a shade short of 48 but we are really holding out hope for the spring. He will ride anything you let him on and I can't wait to ride Beast, Adv Express, Racer and Mystic with him.

    Oktoberfest Discussion

    IIRC way back they put in zephyr, new dodgems, and skylab all at once. Love to see an Oktoberfest revamp with a ferris wheel, screaming swing, and wild mouse all at once

    Exactly. Most of the infrastructure is still there and that's the hard part when creating this sort of ambiance. Love to see them take advantage.

    Things KI Can Do For Money

    Speaking of- What is the consensus on the Iron Dragon VR at CP? When I went up this year the line was too long for an unknown quantity (whereas I night time ride on MF is always a win). Seems like it could be awesome if done well.

    Newly Themed Area?

    They should make the whole area Octoberfest/Black Forest. Action Zone doesn't have the shade or ambiance as it stands, but that could be changed. I'd love to see Drop Tower painted with Bavarian diamonds like a gigantic maypole.

    I'd pay an up-charge for a super-immersive, low capacity VR ride. Along with your massage idea, a flavored oxygen bar would be pretty cool.
