  1. First I want to say I love KI and this is by no means park bashing. But for me, I was somewhat initially excited for the Prestige pass when I got the invitation to purchase. I came close to purchase it but honestly the VIP area was never that appealing to me. Maybe I would feel different if I actually went and and sat down, but I never felt like I wanted to spend extra money on it. And note, I am someone who does spend extra money on merchandise/Souvenirs because I want to support the park. I like the suggestion as others mentioned to have something similar to Busch Gardens. If KI had a VIP area like that I would have bought the Prestige pass. I know the park wants to feel out how well the VIP area sells before making that type of expenditure. But they are not going to sell the VIP/Prestige pass to kids or teenagers. More to people who has the means and expects more. This might sound bad but I feel like it would spending steak house prices for McDonald's value. Plus it would become a huge expense for me because I have to buy for wife and kids too. I just think what they currently have should be more a like free option minus the water and chips. Also no kids without adult supervision so things don't get destroyed. Maybe I am wrong and just need to test it out once next year for myself.
  2. That's how I felt about the arbor tunnel as a child . . a portal between two worlds. I loved walking thru it.
  3. This may sound strange since we have huge fountain in the front of the park. But I wish there were more water features around the park. Even bringing back the waterfall in TG. Or have The Beast water wheel still running . . I know the The Beast pond/lake would not come back, but the wheel could empty into a small pool and cycle back up to the top. Even a new Swan Lake area to walk around or sit and enjoy plant life or birds. I know most people go for the rides but I really do enjoy just walking around and taking in the park sounds and atmosphere. But I do love the rides too.
  4. Kinda wish they would do a 10-8 days like Cedar Point until the end of August. I just like knowing I can go over to the park anytime and take a long lunch, get a ride in to forget work for awhile. But I guess we start our season earlier than CP.
  5. Yes, it is always sad to see the closed hours on the calendar.
  6. I got a feeling this type of activity may have occurred many times over the years . . not necessarily on the Ferris Wheel. They just never got caught. I would think the employees may have had their version of "band camp" sometime over the years. idk, maybe
  7. I really enjoyed "Off the Rails" too. Both of these shows were a 'home run' for the park.
  8. I always wondered why parks kept secret the Haunts mazes, scare zones, houses etc. until the very end. Especially somewhere like Universal that starts HHN the first weekend of September. Then I thought maybe they don't want guests to get in the mindset to wait until the Haunt to come visit.
  9. Got to see the show one more time on Saturday. Me and my entire family loved this show and looking forward to it coming back next year. Do the KI performers still have their own Facebook or web page? I remember it years ago but cannot find it now.
  10. I saw in another resource outside of KIC that their only coaster addition is Aquaman. That addition is still a hold over from 2020. Not sure if that is true and I have not seen their normal attraction additions video.
  11. I think it strictly to raise revenue. It is a small enough price jump that will not discourage most renewals.
  12. Getting no new attractions for a few seasons is the reason why I don't understand in other posts people say "It's time to get rid of Congo Falls, Invertigo, The Bat, AE, etc.". We would just likely look at an empty spot for a few years like The Vortex area. I know The Vortex was removed for some unexpected EOL reasons. Since we are not getting new KI attractions, what are the 'improvements' you would like to see next season? Diamondback repaint would be my #1.
  13. Love it . . looks like a really fun ride!!
  14. 3 men were indicted for stealing from cars and bins at KI on July 6th https://www.journal-news.com/news/3-men-face-felonies-after-kings-island-crime-spree/CGZ4QKAF3ZDSZM34573UVBTA2M/
