  1. I also hope the Son of Beast station finally comes down. It's interesting that one of the two purpose-built maze buildings isn't being used this year (Blackout, the other being Slaughterhouse).
    Also interesting that Action Zone has no haunted houses this year at all. If I remember correctly, there there was a time that there were three mazes in that area at the same time (Club Blood, Wolf Pack, original Slaughterhouse).

    Connect the dots and you will see a bigger picture. Wolf Pack, Blackout hmmm….then again it could be nothing.

    It is going to take some work to get the kids area back to #1. I would say a refresh as Camp Snoopy would need to happen. 

    I am surprised about Orion. Having ridden Candimonium this year, I do not put it above Orion.

    They need a category for best dispatch times. KI hands everyone their behinds in that category. 

    Coastercon was at Hersheypark this year. Connect the dots ;)

  3. Haunt is almost certainly going to happen, brings in way too much money. Also I don’t think the threat of covid is really going to scare off a large amount of Kings Islands clientele to be honest.  

    That’s why the business has to be the adult. People being selfish children are the reason we are in the predicament we are now. ;)

  4. This was reportedly posted on a news page. This is supposed to be what flew off TTD. A guest picked it up and said they were keeping it.
    If true, this would definitely squash some of the cover up rumors, but dang....who would ever keep such a thing and impede an investigation??
    EDIT: link to article describing the part below:

    You really have to ask that question? Rofl.

  5. Interesting thought:
    No Dance of the Macabre this year. At least not there. 
     
    It’ll be fun to watch the progress of the tower get painted for those nerdy enough to care about stuff like that. 

    Gonna be fun watching it get stripped and painted. From what I heard it’s getting the royal treatment, not just a cover over. Things are moving quick. Just keep an eye out in the skies around the park.

    Any idea why they changed it? Or was it just because it fades to the current color so quickly? 

    The current color is a blue, this is the original Eiffel Tower Green that SW developed and later changed to Parisian Patina. If I remember the paint was changed to blue during the Paramount years.

     

    Here is a photo where it all began, April 1972.

    Actually, I would like to retract my statement. I may vaguely remember them selling them in the fried mushroom stand. Mind gets cloudy on some things the older you get. LOL

  8. Did I get your attention?
    my sister and I are going to KI tomorrow and she swears she’s seen Eiffel Tower shaped French fries and is dying to try some.  Is this true or was this a crazy dream, and if true, where can she get ‘em?

  9. * Park visitation is strong, currently at about 85% of 2019 levels, according to Witherow. And much of the remaining lag in attendance can be attributed to the slow resumption of group travel and continued capacity restrictions at Canada’s Wonderland in Toronto. (Note: The company does not release individual park attendance figures, although Cedar Point, Kings Island, Canada’s Wonderland and Knott’s Berry Farm in California traditionally draw the biggest crowds.)

    * Per capita spending continues to increase across all categories, including food and beverage, merchandise, games and extra-charge attractions. Per-guest spending so far in 2021 is $59.57, up 18% from two years ago.

    * The number of season passholders continues to increase, up 8% from 2019.
