  1. Coasterstock's activities during the day are typically behind-the-scenes tours or hosted in the Picnic Grove, where there's plenty of room, so I don't think having the events coincide will be a problem.

    I imagine the Kings Island Theater will be utilized with its large projection screen since Cirque does’t begin showing until the Memorial Day weekend.

    The remodeled Enchanted Theater space could also be utilized.

  2. Tickets for next year's Winter Chill Out at Cedar Point on February 23, 2019 are on sale now, earlier than ever. The cost is $50 per participant, with all proceeds benefiting A Kid Again. Everyone gets a multi-hour behind-the-scenes tour of the park (including the new-for-2019 Forbidden Frontier), exclusive Q&A session, hot lunch, and other surprises.

    The event sells out every year, so purchase soon, especially if you want a specific timeslot. @acole5292 , @pianoman, @chugh43 and I just purchased tickets to the 9:30am tour. Who else is attending this year?

  3. Any mobile app we publish would need to respect privacy, not hog battery life, and be completely optional. For those who love using mobile websites, we certainly wouldn't want to pressure anyone into installing an app.

    Push notifications and a in-park friend finder are great ideas. Certainly, an app could make it a lot easier to share photos and video to the forums with fewer steps. The audience for an app would extend beyond those participating on the forums, so we'd want to make it easy to get to (for example) current news and park info.

    Keep the ideas coming! Invision Community has served us well as forum software, but their progress on the mobile side has been slower than I had hoped. Moving to a community platform like Hivebrite would give us a mobile app out-of-the-box that we could customize, or we could look at creating something ourselves (within time and budget constraints).

    What's the buffet option for dining plan?

    The Reds Hall of Fame Grille buffet is on the dining plan. The price is $24.99, or $19.99 with a season pass, or a $5 upcharge as a dining plan redemption.

    Is the Fast Lane entrance at FoF the single rider line?  Gonna try to put some laps on her tonight since the wife went shopping.


    Edit : by her I meant the coaster...


    The Fast Lane Plus entrance is indeed the single rider line for WinterFest.

  5. One more day! The park is looking great on the webcams tonight: https://www.visitkingsisland.com/explore/live-video

    As a reminder, Tinsel Town opens as a new area this season. Tinsel Town Diner (Juke Box Diner) features burgers, patty melts, and a turducken sandwich. Horse-drawn carriage rides are offered for $40 per group of up to six riders.

    The Enchanted Theater is open this year, with What The Dickens and A PEANUTS Guide To Christmas playing there. Coney Barbecue becomes Smokehouse Christmas, featuring roast beef, smoked turkey, Christmas sausage, and rotisserie chicken. Pull-apart cinnamon bread will be found this season at Claus Confectionary (Rivertown Funnel Cakes), along with funnel cakes, hot chocolate, and other treats.

    Can't wait to see everyone there tomorrow!
