  1. Some great RMC Mean Streak photos uploaded from a constitution tour. https://www.flickr.com/photos/srail/sets/72157683772997033 Edit: Found an article about the tour. http://www.cleveland.com/travel/index.ssf/2017/07/cedar_points_former_mean_strea.html
  2. Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    As we get started with 2018 in just a few days, lets start a thread for the new Coney BBQ and other food offerings at KI this year. With Chef Major coming in, it is very exciting what 2018 will bring for Kings Island in their foods department. To get the thread started, here is a few pictures that KI sent us as a sneak peak of the new Coney BBQ restaurant. The restaurant looks great and I am very excited to try out the new offerings this season! What about you?
  3. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I hate to bust anyone's bubble, but I just got off windseeker and stared at the old dinosaurs alive area the whole time I was on it. I saw not one bulldozer, tractor or shovel over there. All I saw was dirt from the old dino dig area. Sorry no giga construction over there.
  4. Here is the article: https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog/a-steel-vengeance-update
  5. Current wait times

    Whether or not you were told otherwise, it is against park rules to have phones out on rides, especially coasters. We at KIC represent KI's biggest fans and expect you to abide the rule of the park no exceptions!
  6. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Let me restate my last post. We are done with B&M vs Intamin. It adds nothing to this thread. Any further posts will be removed.
  7. Looking for Kings Island food models

    Looking forward to seeing the Blog post @Oldschool75.
  8. The Giga Speculation Thread

    We know who is on team B&M and who is on team Intamin. Let's speculate a Giga, I want to see more track layouts and train designs. I would love to see giga layouts that integrate with other rides in the park!
  9. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    Once people know that is an option, I think they will jump on it.
  10. The Giga Speculation Thread

    But they could use the terrain to go over 400ft if they got creative.
  11. 2018 Entertainment

    I have to agree, Jump is a much better show. Luckily KI must have agreed. Taken Opening Weekend!
  12. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I am guessing if they go B&M they will have a MCBR for capacity. Side note: Unless the train needs stopped due to blocking, why do they need to stop/slow you there? I have never understood that.
  13. We would love for you to share what you get! Thanks @King Ding Dong
  14. Since we have many members wanting to be apart of the KIC podcast here is your opportunity. We are looking to create a few podcasts with multiple members as guests. We will want to know why you would be a good guest for the podcast. Keep in mind that the audience is not just KIC members. We put the podcast on itunes so we are looking to talk to any fans of the park and the industry. To be considered please do the following! Create a PM to @IndyGuy4KI and @CoastersRZ using the subject: KIC Podcast with your screen name. Example: KIC Podcast - IndyuGuy4KI In your subject tell us why you would be a good guest on the podcast. The more details you give us the more likely we will have you on the show. A few examples: You were a former park employee who has stories to share with us when you worked there. You have a degree in a field used at the park and can give us some perspective on certain things. You are a KI historian with lots of park history to share. You have 5,000 rides on DB and want to share your story. Let us know if you are current park employee. (If you do not share this you will not be considered.) Include your Full Name and phone # so we can call you if needed. We look forward to hearing from you and potentially having you on the show!
  15. So, who bought the 499$ passes.

    Some are here because they never get bored of KI.
  16. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Another Giga theory over in DA!
  17. WCPO: Kings Island rides we wish had never gone away

    I loved SOB's first drop, nothing short of amazing. The rest of the ride though was very rough and there were other issues with the ride. Yes, RMC was around then. From what I have been told the park got quotes from companies that were willing to put their name on it for a fix. The investment just did not make sense.
  18. Ideas for the Crypt building?

    I love KD's Crypt. I could be wrong, but I thought our Crypt was not engineered to be outside?
  19. Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I would agree @BoddaH1994. Although I felt there is some room for improvements, I was overall very happy with what we got. The chicken used at Hanks on Friday was awesome! Things are looking bright for KI food offerings.
  20. The Giga Speculation Thread

    That "Guy" would be me. That interview was 6 months ago. We don't know what Mike told us then is still the case now? Things can change on a dime. The next day after that interview corporate could have made others plans. My point: We can't hold to tight to that interview at this point. As for the Giga in DA. The point I think some are trying to make is that they are not convinced some tree removal and sewer pipes mean a Giga. For them they need more evidence before coming to that conclusion.
  21. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Discussion is great, but a few trees being removed does not even confirm construction. We don't want anyone picking out landscaping for the station when we really don't know anything.
  22. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    Jump is returning. Here is their sign.
  23. April 14, 2018: VortexBFF's Favorite Opening Day by far!

    I thought they were quite efficient for preview night and opening day. I agree with @Gannersdaddy the slowness I saw this weekend were the riders not the ops!
  24. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    I felt the slow speed waiting for the other train to go over lift 2 seemed a little slower. But once the train crested the speed was normal. I noticed no difference in the ride.
  25. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I kind of like it. A parking toll coaster vs a front gate coaster.
