  1. To really celebrate Kings Island's 50th anniversary, it would be great for them to finally reveal what Mike designed for the park.
  2. Love it when they post things like this! I've always wanted to see a pic of the undeveloped field that Kings Island sits on now.
  3. I sure hope that's temporary. One of my favorite things at the park, and I seek it out every visit.
  4. Those videos are fantastic. I have some family members that haven't been to the park since the 70's, and pics don't do the park justice. The videos really give the feeling of what it's like being there.
  5. I haven't been through my KI stuff for awhile, and came across a couple more items with the original logo...two of everyone's favorite items to remember their Kings Island visit: a shot glass, and an ashtray. Also, it doesn't sport the first logo, but the map pictured is from, what I understand, the opening season.
  6. Just wanted to share a few things I have with the original KI logo...the glass and the salt and pepper shakers are vintage. The shirt was sold at Kings Island just a few years ago that lists original attractions. I've worn it to the park a few times. I've had associates ask me about it; a few thought it must have been vintage. it does have 70's vibe to it. Since the original logo was from the Coney/Kings Island continuation era, I scanned a Coney brochure that is from its final season. It doesn't have the KI logo, but it does reference the "new park".
  7. Slightly off-topic, but after all these years (decades), seeing the Eiffel Tower "towering" behind the entrance gate like that still gets me every time!
  8. Those were absolutely fantastic photos. Some of the best views of the park during the early years I have ever seen. My parents took me once in 1975 when I was too little to remember (didn't start going regularly until 1992), so these views of the park always fascinate me. The early years of Kings Island were definitely its most beautiful, and I definitely think its currently much closer to its original condition than it was 15-20 years ago.
  9. I'm wondering at what point will they check your reservation - entry gate? Parking tolls? Entering the lot? Kings Island Drive? What will they do with people that drove hours to the park and have no reservation? Hopefully they have plans for some "security" in these situations (Sorry folks, park's closed unless you have a reservation!).
  10. Anyone else wondering how and when they filmed that video at KI?! That would have been a pretty extensive production. It couldn't have been too long ago that they would have had the "green light" to do this. I saw at least the Carousel opening. Looked to be a lot of covid-related safeguards already installed, looks like they've been preparing for awhile.
  11. The mask situation has become interesting just based on my local observations as various business continue to open up. Two weeks ago, 95% of everyone I saw had on a mask. A week ago, roughly half. In the last few days, I have rarely seen anyone in a mask in a store or restaurant, except for employees that are required to wear them, and most of them have been sporting the trendy "chin masks".
  12. I couldn't have said it better myself! MT feels like it had the similar amount of thought put into it as the original construction of Kings Island.
  13. I check the webcams here and there, and this is the first day I have seen any activity. Several work trucks visible at various locations. Hopefully it's a good sign!
