  1. Here's a story of DeWine putting in standards for Junior Fair only. https://www.journal-news.com/news/county-fair-regulations-junior-fair-exhibits-only-touching-animals/BTUvClmeBnwvO2TgY084uM/
  2. This video is only SPECULATION. But says CW may open betweeen July 1st - 15th. With 9am-midnight hours split in two sessions by reservation, limited to 10k patrons, half restaurants open, bathrooms closed periodically for cleaning, no SplashPark. Again, this is just SPECULATION.
  3. This video is good history of the park maps. The ’78 map was ugly. The ’82 was very plain and other years like 86, 87, 89 were too. I liked the classic look of the ’92 map and it showed the Phantom Theater very prominently. The first couple 94-95 Paramount maps were plain but at least they had pictures . . some other maps were just lines and shapes. But my favorite years had the Son of Beast in the maps of the 2000’s. It just made the park look much fuller.
  4. I was a little concerned they would not keep the park at world class status because of CP. But that would be very bad business to pay out so much and let your product go downhill. But everyone kept saying they know how to run regional parks. Obviously they did keep the park up and made it better. At the time I did get excited about getting a new coaster - "Firehawk". Since I never rode a flying coaster it sounded really fun to ride.
  5. I agree with the more trees and just general blocking out the rest of the world. We still see the parking lot, roads, etc.. I realize that is not true in every area of SC but I just want to be fully immersed into another world. It always amazed me at the Cincinnati Zoo how you feel like your somewhere else but literally just feet from neighborhood, houses, streets, etc..
  6. Would The Crypt building be an option to create a new dark ride? Can it be converted where it makes sense monetarily ??
  7. I agree . . it will have to be an already proven, very reliable type of coaster with high capacity. Something like a B&M dive or wing would fit that bill perfectly. But I still would love a Maverick or Copperhead Strike. How reliable are these coasters? Capacity?? I would also love a ground up RMC. I think it would look great if they could make it part of the Rivertown and put the queue closer near Larosas Pizza.
  8. Besides Shoot the Rapids and Top Thrill Dragster . . were there other rides the spoiled the relationship between Cedar Fair and Intamin? If so, is that relationship really beyond repair?
  9. Yes, I agree we need more thrilling and family flats. But I guess there is only so much budget to go around as far as maintaining and having trained crews. Not 100% sure, but I think it was a concentrated effort to have a world class kids section instead of a more full flat lineup. Not that there is anything wrong with the flats we have . . definitely top of the line rides. Just a smaller lineup compared to some other parks. I am not trying to dish on KI, I think its definitely one of the best regional park anywhere. I just walk around and think right here or there would be a great place for a flat. Also, I think KI is the most clean and well run park I have ever visited. The staff across the board is second to none.
  10. Nice history video of The Beast. I didn't know they had to rebuild the helix to make it larger. It was the reason it was not enclosed the 1st season.
  11. Not sure if anyone has brought this up before but got me thinking with The Vortex removal. If there were still seats available or they could order new ones . . do you think it would be a popular attraction again if they did POV's of defunct roller coasters. We could have one for Vortex, SOB, King Cobra, etc.. Maybe even POV's from other parks like MF, Fury, etc.. I would like it but don't know if it's even possible to retrofit Action Theatre to do those types of POV's. Or how hard it is to program the ride for multiple coasters. Cause I think people would get tired if it was the same coaster all season long.
  12. I guess I would like an RMC like this one. The one is a 200ft coaster so we can still get a good size one with the inversions RMC offers. I like the looks of it too . . still miss seeing the large wooden structure of SOB. So I think it would look great back there and maybe move the entrance down by LaRosa's so it can be part of Rivertown. Just a thought.
  13. Bring back the canoe ride. It was a central theme in the Brady Bunch episode. I think there was even a hiking trail that went back behind the lake. I don't remember exactly. But seriously I would like something like Copperhead Strike. But a B&M Dive is more in line of being a proven people eater that King's Island seems to go after. I would like either one.
  14. I am pretty sure this has been posted before somewhere on KIC but I love it. Thought maybe some new folks has never seen it before. But here is a video by Dane Thomas of KIC . . it just came up on my Recommended YouTube list today. I wonder if they'll change any effects for the new Area 72 experience inside the spaghetti bowl. But I think this video is really cool.
