KIC Tourist

KIC Tourist (1/13)



  1. I'm looking to return to the '21 season and renew my Gold Pass from 2019. I skipped last year because of the virus and think it should be safe enough to return this season. Does anyone know if KI will require face masks for this upcoming season? Has it been relatively safe to visit the park even with the virus? I'm usually a single-rider and visit the park on my off-days from work so I typically go alone and spend half the day there. I remember in previous years, if you were a single rider they put you next to someone else if there was an open seat. I'm not sure if I feel safe doing that now. Anyone have more information on any of this? I'm really excited to return this year but I'm not finding much information on the KI website.
  2. If you get told you can't enter because of your temperature then that's for your own safety for those around you whether it's accurate or not it's a safety precaution for all guests. There's precautions you can take before going such as taking your own temperature and if you're in a safe zone there should be no reason why you can't enter the park. Those temperature gauges may not be 100% accurate but it will be accurate enough not to give a terribly off reading. I'm not saying EVERYONE is not taking it seriously. I'm saying those who complain about having to wear a face masks or abide by these rules that are put in for EVERYONE'S safety. Too many posts about face masks being uncomfortable or inconvenient. Fine I get it then don't come to the park and don't complain about precautions that are put in when we are in the middle of a PANDEMIC. Waiting in lines should be expected when there are precautions in place. That's why they are putting a maximum allowed capacity and reservation system in place to help offset this. I'm fine with waiting in line to get my temperature checked because I will feel more comfortable being around other guests knowing they passed a temperature check. So what if I have to wait? The reservation system may be slow or have problems but it's necessary. I'm just happy I can I can go to the park this year and that the park is taking this seriously enough.
  3. No you wont happily do what you want. You'll abide by the rules of KI to wear a mask or be kicked out.
  4. If you can't wear a mask because of breathing problems then don't come to the park. And yes, it is selfish not to wear a mask because you find it uncomfortable. If you can't wear a mask because of a medical condition then you shouldn't be at the park during this pandemic. If you seriously can't breathe while wearing a mask then don't come to the park but don't complain about having a mask requirement at the park when we're in the middle of a pandemic. It's unlikely social distancing will work as intended so wearing a mask is a 100% must.
  5. I'm sitting here in disbelief that some would complain about wearing masks, doing a health screen check, receiving a temperature check and having to reserve using the app. Let me break down how much time is spent on each. 1. Health screen check assessment - 5 mins 2. Receiving a temperature check at gate - 15 seconds 3. Reserve time using app - less than a minute How is this hard to follow or puts off some of you so much that you'd rather not go to the park? I can see the mask requirement part but it's for your own safety and for the safety of those around you. It's selfish in my opinion to not wear a mask because it's uncomfortable or inconvenient. It's also uncomfortable and inconvenient to have a ventilator in your throat at the hospital. This pandemic hasn't just magically gone away and taking precautions is the only way to help stop the spread. Be glad the park is even opening up and taking this seriously. Frustrating to see some of you act like this pandemic isn't a big deal because it hasn't affected you or your loved ones.
  6. I've ridden the ride many times throughout its lifecycle many years ago. I noticed the building it's in is no longer active. I've read that the ride was renamed to the Crypt and shortly shut down after. Is the ride still inside the garage? I really liked that ride and find it a shame they never tried to restore it. Very unique ride for its time.
  7. As I sit here rubbing my crystal ball, I predict that The Bat, formerly known as Top Gun will be the next coaster to leave the park. Why? Because It's in a weird part of the park with the strangest entrance and exit design ever made. It's also one of the least popular rides in the park. Mark my words.
  8. 2/5. Adventure Express has seen far better days. The ending tunnel needs a ton of work. I was looking at an old video and the sound and animatronics looked and felt a lot better back then. Riding it a week ago, I can say that it felt nothing like what the video showed at the end. Flight of Fear is also a lot worse than what it was many years ago. Just look up old videos of these rides and you can clearly see the difference. I also miss old rides like Tomb Raider which had its own theme throughout the entire ride and I really wish it would make a comeback. Cedar Fair can do much better when it comes to theming their rides and making them come to life.
  9. I'm just very introverted.. keep to myself most of the time while at the park with podcast and music when I go on the weekdays. I think it's ridiculous that every ride in the park now has a seat manager even when it's a walk-on for most rides when I go. I try to go for the empty rows but 9/10 times I get paired with someone (mostly kids) even when asking and there are empty rows. I don't think the Ride-ops care for the most part or they get to distracted to notice there's other empty rows available.
  10. I've taken multiple trips to the park and have had a great time by myself and while I'm usually always having a good time at the park, there is one issue I have with the way some of you micro-manage seating. As a single rider, it is sometimes uncomfortable to be seated next to someone (especially young kids and bigger adults). If there are empty seats available please let us single riders have the opportunity to take them. There's been multiple times where you try to micro-manage seating so much that you end up multiple rows of empty seating that single riders would love to have to themselves. I'm not sure if this is Kings Island policy to have it done this way but it seems counter-intuitive to the entire process and it just makes the experience less fun for us single riders. I have no issue sitting next to others if it's very busy but most of the time it's not, especially on the weekdays. Just a rant I wanted to put out there and hopefully some employees see this and take note. I remember many years back when we were allowed to pick any row of seating we liked and I don't remember that ever being an issue.
  11. I see. That's too bad but I agree Monday should have short wait times at most. I find it strange that the park has no Single line rider ques.
  12. I'm looking to make a trip to the park for the first time by myself. I've called guest services and they told me that there are no single rider line ques but I find that hard to believe since every other park I've been to has had some sort of single rider que in place, and if I remember correctly, Kings Island did have a single rider que a few years back. Can anyone give me insight on if there are single rider ques at all at the park? I'm planning on making a trip probably on Monday so I expect the park to not be as packed, but a single rider line would definitely be something I'd like to take advantage of.
  13. Hey all, I just set up an interview for this week for ride operations and im only 16. What type of questions do they ask you? Im in dire need of help!! Thanks
