    I am a resident of Cincinnati, about 40 minutes from Kings Island, which, I try to visit 5-10 times a year. Big fan of coasters and amusement parks in general. I currently attend the University of Cincinnati seeking a degree in psychology. I was a 9 year member of the Bearcat Bands playing alto and tenor saxophone and I still try to play with the UC Community Band and other groups. I'm a big time music nut. I'm a bit of a sports fan, I get into most movies, and little bits of about everything. I am now a current employee at the Delhi Township Skyline.

  3. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    It has to do with the awkward block sections. The mentioned block area is between the top of the first lift and the top of the 2nd lift.

  5. Trip Details Cincy to Erie PA hotel- 5 hrs 15 min Erie Hotel to Waldameer- 20 min Erie hotel to Allentown Hotel- 6 hours (staying off the PA Turnpike until NJFTP) Allentown Hotel to Dorney- 15 minutes " to Hershey- 1 hr 20 min " to Knoebel's- 1 hr 45 min " to NJFTP- 1 hr 55 min With all I saved on hotels and park admissions, I actually have a nice bit of spending money for this trip. I am pulling a malem and leaving at 5 am for Erie one day 1. I'm psyched for this summer!
  6. Why does Knoebel's say on their website that all the All Day passes exclude Haunted Mansion? Edit- malem answered my question via PM.
  7. Finally got my time off approved at work. Currently booking.
  8. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    From my experience, the first 2 weeks worth of weekdays after Memorial Day are super prime times to go in terms of light crowds. I always try to go at least once or twice in that span.
  9. Awesome new set on the Bandstand!!

    Are there going to be any acoustic bits added to the set up or is it just to make it look shiny? Glad to see this show get some TLC. silver2005, who knows this show is automatically better because it has saxophones.
  10. The Giga Speculation Thread

    How, pray tell, do you conceal a 300+ ft lift hill and all the other large hills to follow? A giga is many things, but secluded isn't one of them.
  11. Guess who's getting 100% off a NJFTP ticket due to ACE being awesome? Also, I get ACE discounts at the rest of the parks sans Knoebels. Not too shabby. I'm also using my dad's AAA membership that he gets through his former P&G employment, so I'm also saving tons on hotel costs.
  12. ^I'd consider that a bad thing. I'd never get any school work done, especially if there was coaster construction in the off season. I'd hate to have gone to Kings HS or Mason HS.
  13. Current wait times

    @Tera Ryzing And what law, pray tell, could people possibly be breaking with that choice? Its no different than taking that list and transferring it on here via posting.
  14. The Giga Speculation Thread

    That's not how context works.
  15. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    So I noticed a few things at the KI Skylines that aren't quite up to par with the outside restaurants- - the buns aren't steamed enough - they put onions on before chili, should be the other way around to avoid having onions fall into the chili - they don't use coney racks - they put too much cheese on coneys and not enough on ways - they don't fill the way containers with spaghetti - they open up the buns too much
