  1. Links are helpful. https://www.wdwinfo.com/news-stories/accident-at-tomorrowland-transit-authority-peoplemover-causes-evacuation/
  2. IMO, a small one would be fine, but we do not need a giant wheel. We have 3 rides that give great views. No need for a Chance Giant wheel, but that is just me.
  3. Please no. I do not think KI needs a Ferris Wheel. We need a coaster to replace Vortex.
  4. More info and pics here: https://wdwnt.com/2020/02/photos-images-surface-of-guests-clinging-to-sinking-jungle-cruise-boat-at-the-magic-kingdom/
  5. If you are interested in joining the most thrilling job around, look no further. Kings Island will be holding an open job fair this Saturday, Feb. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We are hiring for our Food & Beverage, Merchandise, Games, Rides, Aquatics, Park Services, and Security departments for ages 15+.

  6. Disney announced Tuesday that CEO Bob Iger will step down and become executive chairman through 2021, effective immediately. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/25/disney-names-bob-chapek-next-ceo.html
  7. After being at Knott's are riding their Gerstlauer, Hang Time, I would be fine getting one of those on a grander scale. If they could hit the 200ft mark with 7 inversions that would be a great replacement for Vortex. Bonus: the light package on this ride is awesome.
  8. You might fill the rest of us in next time. The pictures for non engineers just looks like some graffiti artist got loose.
  9. After months of construction, Kings Island’s new Orion roller coaster completed its first test run at 5:29pm today. Video just released from park officials shows one of the ride’s three trains climbing the lift hill and plummeting down the 300-foot first drop. Orion will make its public debut on April 11 when Kings Island opens for the 2020 season when it will become one of only seven giga coasters in the world. Riders will sit four across on a 32-passenger train traverse on a high-speed journey over eight hills and 5,321 feet of track at speeds up to 91 mph on the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Kings Island.

  10. @CPFoodBlog is reporting no Steel Vengeance ERT this year except on weekends.
  11. Another Apex park that closed. It seems they were out of their league. https://buffalonews.com/2020/02/20/fantasy-island-a-new-owner-then-complaints-now-closure/
  12. Another article about the city looking at getting a buyer. https://www.jconline.com/story/news/2020/02/21/indiana-beach-potential-buyers-emerge-monticello-mayor-owner-say-hopes-amusement-park-still-alive/4829720002/
  13. The discussion about Fun Spot buying IB is in its own thread here.
  14. Since this is not related to Apex I think this news deserves its own thread.
  15. No clue from me. It seems we are talking about it more than Carowinds Connection.
  16. I am guessing that 40% is the new CP gold passes. So do you think they will see a 40% increase in attendance next season at CP?
  17. Confirmed by the news. https://www.wlfi.com/content/news/Indiana-Beach-closes-gates-567980101.html
  18. Amusement today article confirming the same https://www.facebook.com/groups/IndianaBeachHistory/permalink/3739423189431123/
  19. Rumors from IB fan pages are not looking good. https://www.facebook.com/groups/274071829612644/permalink/1074335469586272/ Rumors abound about the status of the park. Indiana Beach and Fantasy Island are currently not listed on Apex's website. There are a few "stories" going around that both parks and rides are for sale. News & Review is reporting that maintenance staff at the park have been told to remove their tools and leave the park. We will wait and see what happens!
  20. Guess who just got a week ban!! LOL, just kidding.
  21. Verizon and usually get better reception on it than park wifi on a busy day.
  22. Why is this picture not in the photo contest?
  23. Chad wrote a KIBlog post about a Kings Island love story. Do you have a love story to tell about your Valentine this year? https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2020/february/a-valentines-day-story-from-kings-island?fbclid=IwAR1nKok5Z0vV7Du09PfDebAbXcd2zUjkz8S1Aa8FEHH3SySePn9d8A0QvJI
