    Something about a Kings Island getting a Parade?

    ^ Yeah, but those modern things are colloquially known as Edison bulbs. Typing out "those things that hipsters falsely attribute to being the same design as Thomas Edison's, those mindless lemmings" felt maybe a little pretentious.

    Something about a Kings Island getting a Parade?

    I missed this, somehow. I LOVE the idea of this. I've daydreamed about the park having some sort of international celebration with a parade on International Street several times. They kind of read my mind, so to me, this kind of the coolest. Sign me up. Even better if it takes place at night with special lighting, either Edison bulb-y or like the Main Street Electrical Parade at Disney. But even if they stick with existing lighting, I'm still all in. Hopefully they give it a shot!

    Rename the Rides!

    I was thinking today about how it's been 10 years since the park was de-Paramounted... Let's pretend you're in charge, and something happened that legally required you to change the names of all the coasters in the park. None of them can stay what they currently are. What would you rename them? You can just change the names, you can retheme the entire park, you can repaint the rides, you can use other properties/movies/books/whatever. There are no restrictions.

    Next NEW Coaster

    I totally get the lack of appeal, but those things are surprisingly fun. I rode one a couple IAAPAs ago.

    Upcoming Podcasts

    I vote for King Ding Dong. You could do a segment on his predictions for what the inside of the Rivertown Coke Freestyle stand actually looks like.

    Newly Themed Area?

    ^ Listen, you already keep the Coke Refresh stand in Rivertown closed. You're really gonna make then shut down an entire area of the park when you visit, now?

    No coasters?

    Not sure--I've heard something similar, but I've never explicitly heard the rules for that situation explained. It was definitely colder than that for Banshee's media day.

    No coasters?

    Can't speak for Banshee or Invertigo, but all the Arrow coasters (Bat, Adventure Express, and Vortex) don't operate when it's under 45° out. So that's part of what was going on last night.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    A deduction: they want to sell it, but they don't have a buyer. Given what the CEO has said about cutting cost, I wouldn't expect to see it moved within the chain. I wonder who they expect to sell to. Firehawk probably costs too much to operate for a smaller park. Surely anyone who's Cedar Fair-sized or bigger either has a Flying Dutchman and knows what they're up against with them or else has been paying attention to what Cedar Fair is doing? Maybe they're looking to sell it to some up-and-coming buyer in Dubai or China.

    The marketing campaign for this new season of Doctor Who is extremely edgy. Glad you had a good time!
