  1. Odd item in Kings Island ios Map

    That's the leaked layout for our 2020 launched wooden hybrid 4D coaster.
  2. Ban the single rider line

    Fun fact: The amount of salt in OP's free salted caramel hot chocolate at Winterfest this year only pales in comparison to the amount in his original post.
  3. Ban the single rider line

    You are describing an operations problem.
  4. Ban the single rider line

    Are you dense? It might help to know what a Single Rider line does before complaining about it.
  5. The Story of Mystic Timbers (Spoilers)

    There are two additional posters in the back part of the queue that I don't have pictures of.
  6. Flat Ride at KI

  7. Clearly this move coincides with Iger's stepping down. Iger-Ouimet 2020 ticket coming soon.
  8. KIHaunt Opening Day Updates

    Would love to see a clearer head-on view of some of those MT station items.
  9. Mystic Timbers Custom Playlist

    Instrumental I-Street music.
  10. Pop music back on International Street

    This switch definitely sucks, but isn't exactly surprising coming from the same park and company who made the tacky decision to put a fidget spinner stand in Coney Mall. KI, and Cedar Fair parks in general, are slowly beginning to cater only to the lowest common denominator.
  11. https://blog.universalorlando.com/whats-new/new-ride-wwohp-hogsmeade/?__source=sm.awr.ao.FBPAGE&linkId=40128016 RIP Dueling Dragons. May the 3D screens and water sprayers that inevitably replace you be as uninteresting as every other new addition this park makes nowadays. Hoping for a relocation, but not expecting one.
  12. Interesting Things Ride-Ops Do

    I don't care about anonymity or anything so I'll give my short take. Back in 2012, I worked at Racer and Zephyr. I was 17 at the time, fresh outta high school and just buying time during the Summer months before starting college. I did the sorts of spiels that are being complained about here, and 5 years later, I think it is the most obnoxious thing in the world. I even sorta kinda regret doing them because now, I have the experience of going to the park years later and seeing everyone do the same stuff, and seeing firsthand how unpleasant it is. Nobody is dissing you, the jokes and quips really don't represent the park (or hell, even you as an employee) very well. As an added bonus, they aren't clever or funny in any capacity. You can guest relate without making lame jokes about being at the wrong park or the wrong ride. Compliment someone's shirt, have a short discussion with someone on your crew before a train gets back from its cycle. If it's a flat ride, just let people enjoy their ride during the cycle. (I don't even like riding Zephyr anymore because there's a blaring speaker asking people to scream or recite years-old commercial jingles every 3 cycles.) Do anything, really. So long as it doesn't reflect the park in a bad light, annoy anyone, or even more importantly, interfere with your real job -- making sure nobody gets hurt on the ride you're working. Get through the day by doing your job correctly and making someone's experience at the park a pleasant and safe one, not by trying your best to be a comedian.
  13. Kings Island Easter Eggs

    Racer Radio sounds great.
  14. Mystic Timbers Construction Progress

    That center vine has got to go. Though if you zoom in, it almost looks as if the sign is split into two panels and the vines are running along the border. Still no better, but it might explain why it's there. The photo on Instagram also appears to have a bit of light shining through the vine as if there's a split between the wood.
