    I find that odd? Why is it only CP that others come to work at?

    Well there are foreign workers at other parks, Kings Island included. Just not as many as at Cedar Point. I think the thing is that there aren't as many local kids around CP available to work as there are around other parks.

  2. What big open area? The only open area is the former dig site, as chugh43 said. The trees that the link says are being removed are pretty randomly spread around and are likely for non construction reasons related to their health. Trees have been being removed around the park in that way for years. As for the 'construction' fence, it is the same design the park recently put up around part of The Racer, Firehawk's exit, and the path leading to the picnic grove. Therefore, not really a construction fence. The way I see it there is absolutely no construction for 2019 at the moment.

    In the rain, prices drop, one time some lady bought like 8 $20 tickets(not in the rain), then later that day tickets went to $5

    If this happened in the past, I couldn't say. However, at least as of the 2017 season,  this can not happen. Once a price rises, it stays that price or higher for the rest of the day. It cannot decrease.

    I have just one really small thing - I'm disabled and use the ride pass. I think its wonderful that they have this program but having to enter thru the exit with riders coming off sometimes is awful. I'm very self conscious of having to do this to begin with and it never fails that some smart mouth kid has to scream "you're going the wrong way". I know there's probably not an easy solution to this issue but it upsets me every time. Trust me I would much rather have to wait in the regular line than have to use a ride pass but its something I have to live with. Also we always have a problem w Drop Tower, I try to explain first thing in the morning when no one is in line that I am handicapped, obviously don't need to use the ride pass cause no one is there, but every time I try to say going thru the regular line is a lot more to walk they always argue with me about it. I've mentioned it twice to guest services but not sure if anything is ever done. Hopefully this year won't be as bad, I've been walking on a treadmill to try to not stay so stiff, so I'm looking forward to seeing if this will help improve me walking thru the park. 

    I'm confused. When you go to Drop Tower first thing in the morning do you have a green sheet (or as you call it a ride pass) with you? If so, then yes, they should be letting you through the exit. But if not, they are right in making you use the regular line. You must have a green sheet in order to use the alternate entrance  (the exit).

  5. I don't know if Sledge Hammer was my singular favorite, but it's definitely up there with Shockwave and Skyhawk. All would make great additions at KI. Though, if I had to pick one I think I'd go with Skyhawk. I loved the interactivity of it and really want to try and beat my flip count of 35. I saw another guy get into the 60s.

  6. I've been on 4 of the B&M inverts. Banshee and Afterburn are the top for me, but I struggle to pick one over the other.

    The other two are Raptor and Talon. Raptor was great on my first ride, but has been meh ever since. Talon I only rode once, and I honestly can't remember the experience. Which is kinda sad considering it was only this past June, but oh well.

    As of my last stent at the park (2011), you had to be clean shaven and all tattoos and piercings (except one for women) had to be covered.

    This remains the current policy for tattoos and piercings. Facial hair is now allowed as long as it's well groomed.

  8. Wow, this is way cool. I'm jealous. I have a thing for anything related to the 1997 season as it was the 25th anniversary season and the year I was born. Once I realized that a few years ago, I went onto eBay and got myself a souvenir 25th anniversary Coke bottle and ornament (pictured below).

    I actually got really excited for a second when I first glimpsed this post as I thought you were selling them. I was ready to jump on it, but hey, I'm glad they're in safe hands rather than the trash.

    Not sure where to put this, so I'll ask it here, TIA.

    Was the sledding open last week?  (hard to make snow in the 50s), if so, is it an up charge to go sledding?

    My son is gluten and dairy free.  During the season he usually got the chicken fingers and fries from the coney mall potato works (I doubt they are dairy free, but it didn't seem to affect him so it was his "go to").  That is obviously out of the equation, are there other gluten free options in the park?  We're planning on going Sunday evening, and thinking I may need to get him something to eat prior, then bring him some snacks to enjoy during the evening.

    How long were the lines/wait for ice skating last weekend?  I'm assuming last weekend was more crowded than this weekend will be, due to it being both opening weekend as well as Thanksgiving weekend, but certainly no guarantee on that.  I think I read the wait for Misty was around 30 minutes, much less than I would have guessed.

    The sledding was open. There is no actual snow involved with it. It's just white turf. And no, there is no charge to slide. That is, however, a very common question I hear as an employee of the sledding hill.


    Hopefully others can better answer your other questions. 


    Edit: Well upstop beat me. Hope your questions are all answered.

    Actually, one thing to add about the skating. I've heard it did sell out Friday night.

  10. I was tempted to put Backlot for much of the same reasons above, but then I thought of it being gone and felt like I'd miss the experience. One experience, however,  I don't think I'd miss is Vortex. On top of that, I always wish it would take more advantage of the terrain it's built on. Other than the batwing, none of it really seems to come too close to the ground.

    Anyone think it will be an off year for rides?   In 2016-2017 they added a ride/slides in Soak City and the next year added a restaurant, in that same time in 2016 Rivertown they built a new funnel cake restaurant and added a ride in 2017.  For 2018 could be a new restaurant and 2019 new flat rides package.  Time will tell if this is right.  

    I've been fairly confident for a couple months now the only thing new to KI next year will be the new Coney restaurant. However, as far as 2019 goes, I'm suspecting something much larger than a couple flats. As you say though, time will tell.

    Per the map, it looks like the snow tubing will be at Skyflyer.....hmm.

    Actually I believe it will be located on the midway in front of Drop Tower. Skyflyer is located behind the Coasters Connections building. This map shows tubing in front of that building.

    This is my first season back to the park after a long hiatus, and I joined KIC less than 6 months ago.  After reading up a bit on the KI website, I'm seeing you have to be a part of an enthusiast group to attend Coasterstock?  Can someone school me in how to start and/or benefits of joining various groups?  If there is an existing thread, by all means point me in that direction.  Feel free to DM me with any knowledge you care to impart.

    Teach me, sensei(s).
