  1. Me and my kids took a trip to Camden Park a couple of days ago. It had been six years since we had last been there, and whille some things had changed, alot was still the same. Some of the changes was the removal of several rides for various reasons. Gone was The Monster, ferris wheel, Dodgems, Hot Cat and Sky Diver. Added since our last trip was The Rattler, Camden Princess and a new mini golf course. First stop on the trip was actually the restrooms. These desperately need some attention. Not that they were just dirty, but they are really in rough shape and could you use a remodel in the wo
  2. Thanks for posting those! They are some awesome views of Kings Island back in the day. I'm sure they look really great through a View Master!
  3. Thanks for the replies! Scrambler is no biggie, I've been on so many different ones over the years I wont miss that. Hope to get on Viking Fury early in the day though. Looking forward to seeing some of the Haunt attractions in the evening, will focus on the rides before that starts. Cant wait for our first Haunt!
  4. Me, my girlfriend and my two kids are coming to KI next Saturday the 28th. This is the first time we have come to Haunt and my girlfriends first trip to KI ever. Its part of my sons birthday gift, as is the Reds game the next day as he turns 13 this Friday. I was just wondering what to expect, how scary are the mazes and scare zones, are all the rides still running during Haunt hours. We plan on getting there around 11 and staying until late in the evening. Hoping for good weather and maybe see some of you guys there.
  5. Enchanted Voyage is legendary to some of us of a certain age. These young whippersnappers today don't know what they missed.
  6. Yeah, I would say The Beast was about a 45 minute wait both times we were back that way. My wife isn't a big fan of waiting in line for too long, so as you can see, we mostly rode rides with shorter wait times. Our longest wait all day was about 20 minutes for Boo Blasters, but the kids really wanted to ride it.
  7. My family and I made our annual trek to KI Tuesday and enjoyed a fun day at the park. The place was pretty busy for a Tuesday, but the weather was nice and we had a good time. We rode the following: Flight Deck, Viking Fury (x2), Congo Falls, White Water Canyon, Racer (x3), Backlot Stunt Coaster, Adventure Express (x2), Shake, Rattle & Roll (x2), Monster, Dodgems, Boo Blasters, Woodstock Express, Surf Dog. We also rode the train over to Soak City and spent a couple of hours over there and also went up the Eiffel Tower. I wanted to get a ride on some of the other rides, like The Beast, but
  8. Do you know exactly what happened with the two rides that malfunctioned? I hadn't heard anything in regards to these incidents.
  9. We always stay at the Super 8. Its a very short drive from KI and there are plenty of places to eat (Arby's, McD's, Burger King) nearby. Its nothing special, but is fairly cheap and pretty clean.
  10. I'm not for sure, but I believe the 21st and 22nd were Math and Science Days. We went to KI on a Math and Science Day a couple of years ago, and it was packed with bus loads of school kids.
  11. Hope the skies clear enough so all you lucky folks going to opening day can get plenty of rides in. Wish I was there!
  12. I had planned on going on opening day, but I think now I'll wait to the new ride opens before making the trip up there.
  13. This banner is now up on Camden Park's website. Does anyone else think this looks like a Delirum type ride?
  14. I was told today by someone who lives in the Huntington area that the new ride at Camden Park will be a Drop Tower type ride called The Rattler. No official confirmation on this, but it jives with some other info I had heard.
