    It was so nice for the first couple seasons when RHoFG first opened to sit down and be waited on (I usually sat at the bar and got great service) during a visit to KI.  It just must be terribly difficult to sustain that type of service.

    I’ve never understood why the park hasn’t taken advantage of selling ride related products near the exits of rides. I would think a small kiosk near the exits would make a lot of money. The Beast used to sell T-shirt’s etc at its exit. Diamondback does and Banshee used to. Even during Haunt they should be selling Haunt attraction related T-shirts.

    Renovations continue on the Royal Fountain.  New lighting has been installed along with new water features.
    This story is not over.
    Stay tuned.

    Where else can I go and experience something that hasn't changed since I was a kid? Most of my old schools are torn down, stores I visited are almost all closed, and I can't visit my childhood home.  But, I can go ride The Racer.  It was there in the 70's when I visited as a toddler.  Rode it with friends in college, through times of various jobs, and can go ride it today.  I can go ride the first "big" coasters that I got on almost 30 years ago, and that I rode on dates 20 years ago.  I can walk by the fountains and look at the Eiffel Tower that my mom and aunt experienced before I was born.  Kings Island is literally one of the very few places where you can still go and re-visit the decades of your life.

    I'm going to give the park the benefit of the doubt that they knew what they were doing with the Int'l Street renovations.  The Royal Fountains are a HUGE part of the park's identity and it was a massive risk to make any substantial change to them.

    Not a specific memory but there's a group of 9 women who worked together in Games between 1987 and 1993 (ish) and we still get together every few months!  We are all so thankful that we worked at Kings Island and met each other.

    I've posted this before, but here's a no-frill video of a visit I made in 2011.  It's pretty much a whole day condensed into 3 minutes.  I just watched it again today.  Hopefully it can help someone's off-season blues just a bit!

    That would be a good theory for the tree removal.  That could add a really cool vibe to IS at night, during any part of the season.

    I was talking to a friend about the IS makeover (she's not even really a Kings Island "enthusiast").  She thinks they're probably going to do video projections onto the buildings.  Might be kind of cool for both WF and Haunt.

    Since they already completely clear the shops out to prepare for Winterfest, and then again before restocking for the next season, I would not be surprised to see some remodeling done inside the shops while they're empty.  They could use it, they're pretty dated.

    If any of the food in the park was half as good as Applebees, they'd be in a good spot.  And I hate Applebees.
