  1. Is that the official statement? That line made me laugh. I think I am most excited about the repaint of Racer with all we have learned so far about the 50th. What about the rest of you?
  2. So there are 350 galleries we imported on the server. I have to get with @malem on the best method to import into the live galleries on KIC. I will get with Malem on the audio files and get them on a new page on the main site.
  3. The photos have been imported on the server, we now have to go through them and integrate them into our galleries.
  4. I almost made a post earlier saying I did not know DMX visited KI and had rode RFRLCB.
  5. I agree with you, plus their methods were not that great. During the KI show, they were checking out WWC. They blamed everything out there on the trees and dismissed all accounts of reports. Not to say the trees were a factor in the "activity", but to totally dismiss the possibly of any real ghost activity reported by employees seemed very odd and disappointing. Maybe it was just me because that was the area I was hoping they would investigate the most besides the IR.
  6. Here is the KIC gallery of RFYLCB, but did not see these light in any of the photos from the past. https://kicentral.com/photos/race-for-your-life-charlie-brown @TombraiderTy you have anything?
  7. I hope the ride structure gets painted as well. Here is a pic from last year or the year before. I love seeing all the painting going on.
  8. It has lasted this long, why close it now?
  9. With it blocked off for one side access now, half the queue is useless at this point anyway. A revamp is a good idea.
  10. I love the backstory of matching it with the brewhouse.
  11. It is a fun little ride, gets you differently in the stomach than other coasters. I rode it several times and enjoyed each ride on it.
  12. Cool info to know @FoF96". Thanks for sharing.
  13. I am hoping Chef Major has some ideas for the 50th anniversary in 22 in the food department. In the not to distant past there were threads about bad food quality. Now most of the discussion is positive and people looking forward to the next food event wondering what Chef has up his sleeve. He really had changed the game with the food at KI.
  14. The park has now made their 50th Anniversary season events page live. They are not waisting any time staring the 50th anniversary. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/events/50th-anniversary
  15. Kings Island has posted their 50th anniversary event page: https://www.visitkingsisland.com/events/50th-anniversary
  16. Kings Island ended 2021 with the return of their New Years Eve Party. The party did not disappoint and was the best one yet. Kings Island has learned how to put on a great NYE experience for everyone who attends. KICentral heard nothing but great things yet again for those who were at the event. Thank you for another great 2021 season in the midst of a pandemic Kings Island. Here is a video Kings Island sent us this morning of the NYE party. As another successful Kings Island season comes to an end and now we look forward to a great 2022 season. As we now put our thoughts on the 50th Anniversary season, we have many things to look forward to next season. Many rides have or are getting repainted. Eiffel Tower, The Racer, Race for Your Life Charlie Brown, Adventure Express, Backlot Stunt Coaster, Drop Tower, and Flying Ace Aerial Chase. Lasty, we have the official news we got on Christmas Day with the 2,000 ft of track work being done on The Beast. The 2021 season is barely over and there is already much to look forward to for the 2022 season. I also have a feeling we have not herd the last of the 50th anniversary season celebrations.
  17. Just saw this on Facebook and thought it was interesting.
  18. Just my own guess, but I feel that the validity of these plans are pretty low. nothing is impossible though.
  19. I hope you did not ride this. You would have woke up with your thighs crushed.
  20. They do need a good people eater B&M, but with the price of things right now (if this is real) will they make this investment? Possible plans are not the same as an announcement or seeing construction.
  21. Interesting policy that I didn't know they even had in the first place.
  22. I am not an ACE member, but I think you are wrong here. ACE has done a lot for the industry and continues to do so for all parks far and wide. Look at what this very site and is members have done for Kings Island over the years. KIC has value for the park, not only with our news, history, pic galleries, forums, now podcast, and basically a fan ran marketing team for the park that costs them nothing. Look at the way KIC has helped spark interest in younger individuals/members who are now in the industry. Members have encourage each other to peruse their dream. Heck we have a long time member that now does theming across the chain. A member who has written a history book. The list goes on. ACE also helps provide those interests and passions by doing what they do. Getting back on topic, I can't wait to see what new life is brought back to the Beast with the new engineering for the drop and helix. If it is anything like they did for The Racer I can't wait to experience it.
