    KIfan73 got a reaction from FUN&ONLY! in Viking Fury not operating   
    I searched and didn’t see a topic for this so hopefully there isn’t one already. I have not seen Viking Fury operating during any of my visits this year.. Was there today and it almost looks permanently closed.  The fountain is off in the pond and everything. Anybody hear anything about this?

    I remember going to Kings Island the first season after Great Wolf Lodge opened.  There was no doubt in my mind that there would be a special entrance into the park if you stayed at Great Wolf.  I had it pictured near Top Gun (now The Bat).  I was completely shocked to find that there wasn't one!

    MT wasn't running when I was there last Friday morning.  Luckily, as I came out from lunch at MRB, it was testing, so I got in line.  They called with the OK, so I got a ride on the 1st train of the day.  Great ride, as always, but no effects.  Definitely not quite as good.  I might be the only one, but I think the shed is genius.  I think it's one of the cleverest things ever put in at Kings Island.  So many thoughtful details.  I love the radio...I think it's the exact one that I still have from when I was a kid!

    We went from having several individual coaster club and enthusiast organization events a year to one major event a year with the creation of Coasterstock in 2015. 
    We still do a number of things for individual coaster clubs and enthusiast organizations outside of Coasterstock, just in a different way than having an event. 
    Last year, we introduced K.I. Blog Meetups, offering a series of behind-the-scenes opportunities that included behind-the-scenes video and photo opportunities of The Beast, Racer, Firehawk and Gravity, which included a Q&A with the cast. With the blog meetups, you didn't have to be a member of an approved coaster club or enthusiast organization to participate. Park admission was the only requirement.

    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.
