  1. What could 2018 bring KI

    I hope that's sarcasm.
  2. https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog/a-few-changes-to-discuss It seems as if Sandcastle Suites and the All Wheels Extreme Stadium are being reduced to rubble. The All Wheels Extreme Stadium is part of the expanding the beach boardwalk (and to be honest it was ugly lol). Sandcastle Suites in my observations didn't have a lot of folks staying there and from what I have heard it's been a crappy hotel with bad reviews including dirty rooms, pools not kept up well, etc.
  3. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    I believe it does. Especially during Haunt. With Fast Lane entrance back toward Action Theater, the exit for Vortex and where the exit for WindSeeker is, it gets congested. Urgent Scare isn't my favorite haunt, but in recent years, walking back toward it, I'm fighting crowds to get to it.
  4. Coasterstock 2018

    Man we all look miserable! lol
  5. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    I'd be down for that. I hate how congested the area between Vortex and WindSeeker gets. Add Haunt and it's a nightmare.
  6. http://www.wearecentralpa.com/news/amusement-park-asks-for-extension/651909445?utm_source=ITPS+Amusement+INdustry+News&utm_campaign=6206d1ee91-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_02_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_51d9c64022-6206d1ee91-231732317 This park is home to the oldest wooden roller coaster in operation in the United States. Very interesting park, but I don't honestly see it being open through this extension.
  7. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I think it's important to remember that these "concepts," povs and all that are to our knowledge not coming from the park. The park with Rob Decker come up with a basic layout for rides in the area wanted and go to their manufacture of choice to see what they come up with. When the initial design with layout is given, the Rob Decker and his crew look it over, see what they like/don't like and then make changes as needed to ensure it's what is wanted. We can share different No Limits creations and how we think it's going to be what's coming to KI until we are blue in the face, but that doesn't change the fact that these are just some coaster fans creating an idea that the park/Rob Decker will likely never see or the manufactures will ever use.

  10. KI/CP Trip Advice

    As far as 1) The Super 8 isn't terrible in my experience. I've stayed there probably over 20 times and have never had an issue. I typically ask for a room on the 2nd floor. You should be fine. 2) I would think your VF associate ID will get you in to the park for ERT. As far as current things, current associates will be best suited to answer the other part of this question. 3) Mystic Timbers, shouldn't be too bad, the line moves rather quickly even when it's long. Try to hit it for ERT if you can or right at park opening. Really any place on this ride is good. I prefer the back right seat. Check it out. I also like the front too. For Valravn....this still gets quite a big line as of last year, even as it's 2nd year. It's not the best capacity for a big ride..but it works. I'd hit this up for ERT and late evening if possible. Front or 2nd row for this. 4) Depends on how far you want to drive from each park. For KI, I really don't have any suggestions, usually when leaving the park, we grab fast food on the way home. As for CP, there's a local place called Diana's Deli....it's fairly good. It's on Route 250 not too far from the park. It's open 24 hours and has pretty much all American food. 5) Just enjoy it!
  11. Ideas for the Crypt building?

    So this but Intamin instead?
  12. Which Coaster needs a Paint Job?

    The reason I voted for Firehawk was that you literally see the neon green paint from it's days as X-Flight coming through the red paint.
  13. Which Paramount Park was the flag ship

    I consider Kings Island as the Flagship. However, the Paramount offices I believe were located in Charlotte, near Carowinds.
  14. Funpix info

    I find this program so worth it! It's really easy. You can download and print as many times as you want from www.myfunpix.com. Make sure you create an account there too. I believe you can share directly to your social media from there too.
  15. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Thank you for using logic! While it'd be nice to see that station used again outside of the Haunt dates....it just does not make sense. We're not in some kind of world where it's just easy to plop a coaster in a place to use an old station. There would be a lot of work needed to be done, clearances would really need to be tested and of course designing would be a challenge to, for the queue and the ride.
  16. Looks like the Maverick Midway is going to look a bit nicer! http://www.placeworkshop.com/project/cedar-point-maverick-midway/
  17. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    Not to mention, there are other black seats in the park.
  18. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    I'm not really seeing what you're seeing..but I'd assume it'd would be a lift to bring the ride vehicles back to their locations.
  19. Kings Island as a Resort

    I saw it recently in person, but not sure what exactly it is. It looks to be way back and possibly off that property line.
  20. Congo Falls

    You're using a lot of language like it's a guaranteed thing. Even though I hate Timberwolf, I don't see it going anywhere currently. It doesn't make sense to remove a coaster just so a new coaster can turn around and go back the way it came...especially when that coaster still does well for itself. It just doesn't make logical sense to do something like that when there still is plenty of undeveloped land elsewhere in the park.
  21. Congo Falls

    You lost me at this....KI has enough land that having a "parking lot coaster" is not needed. Kings Island has been a place where rides are in typically great settings....do you really think a parking lot is really the best placement for a new coaster? It'd be different if the parking lot at KI was fully paved, had more trees/shade and a great set up.
  22. 2018 cirque show

    This is awesome! I'm wondering if it's a brand new show in the idea of hasn't been released yet or if it is a show that's been done before. Either way, this is exciting!
  23. Waldameer is a great park! I love it! Ravine Flyer II is amazing!!!
  24. Looks like Lakemont will remain closed for 2018. http://www.wearecentralpa.com/news/lakemont-park-to-remain-closed-re-open-in-2019/1013540302
  25. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Actually, it's better to quote someone (even if they're right above the post you're about to make) as it notifies them that they have been quoted, especially when a person asks you a specific question. I don't think @KIghostguy guy is getting worked up at all...he already stated who else was there and then answered it. He also stated that He is being criticized for stating what he heard out of the mouth of the head of HR just because others don't think that's valid. Going with the belief that the head of HR said this....said that they don't think Intamin will be used. That person isn't divulging any secret information....isn't speaking as if he's giving the final word on what's going to happen...he literally just gave his opinion. We're acting like a full time staff member isn't allowed to give their opinion to anyone. Either way, KIghostguy and at least one other KIC member were able to hear an opinion from a full timer of the park. KIghostguy decided to share what that full timer said. Anyone can choose to believe it or not...but no one needs to be a jerk about it. That's what this has become. Sometimes it's good for threads to take a break.
