  1. Supposedly the ride has reopened now with one train running (Chess).

    Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    For everyone at the park, any possible signs of construction/how does the former Dinosaurs Alive area look?

    Kings Island Announces 2018 Changes

    I really like that KI is paying attention to the theming of the surrounding area when designing new buildings. We saw this with the new funnel cake building in Rivertown, and I hope it’s a trend that continues. Also, did anyone else notice the nod to The Bat in the concept art? Really nice touch

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Sorry, I was trying to be sarcastic. My fault that it didn't come across that way. I realize it's just a funny coincidence and not actually the strategy of Cedar Fair's installments at Kings Island.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    As far a timing, I think it's pretty clear we're looking at 2020. Think about it.... Magnum XL-200 built in 1989 +20 years = Diamondback in 2009 Raptor built in 1994 + 20 years = Banshee in 2014 Millennium Force in 2000 + 20 years = Giga in 2020 That's called logic boys and girls
  6. Taking 5 of 7 rides seems a bit greedy to me. I think we should distribute the wealth...

    FUN facts

    Okay, I have an obsession with learning useless facts about rides at Kings Island. Like how Diamondback was originally planned to have a 90 degree splashdown, but it was changed to a 65 degree so it wouldn't get the back of the train soaked. So, what is the most interesting, weird, crazy, or useless fun fact about KI rides you can come up with?

    Ha, trust me that's the first step when I leave any maze!

    Blackout Reviews

    Do they alternate between which side of the wall you put your hand on? Last week it was the right side, this week it was the left side. Are they planning to randomly switch the side used?
  10. Thunder Road is definitely cheaper than Son of Beast!

    Funny story about the FUN TV POVs. I was in line for Millenium Force at CP in front of a group of teenagers. A POV of The Beast came on the screen and the group talked about how they had to ride it next. I later saw them walking off and arguing which direction The Beast was in!

    Cedar Fair and Kings Island - MyCokeRewards

    Actually they've been around for a couple years, and sometimes there is a special for 250 point tickets.

    flying eagles back?

    Does anyone remember the thrill rating for the old Flying Eagles? I saw on the new KI app that Woodstock Gliders has a rating of 1, which I thought was surprisingly low.
  14. I'm still trying to get over the idea of a $15 million dive coaster. That seems very...cheap.

    Xlerator Hand Dryers Splatter Bacteria

    Oops! I got my hand dryers confused. I meant the Dyson Blade, which is in many Kings Island bathrooms. Not that XLerators are much better...

    Xlerator Hand Dryers Splatter Bacteria

    Yeah, I never really liked Xlerator hand dryers. I thought it was hard to avoid touching the dryer itself thanks to the awkward design. I guess I'll just stick to hand sanitizer.

    WHAT IS NEW FOR 2015!

    Really excited for flying scooters, not so much about the location...

    Different owner of Kings Island

    ^^You're not implying... A world where we have a steel Racer is a world I don't want to live in. No matter what they say, you can't call it a wooden coaster after that make-over.

    Halloween Haunt poll!

    BB1, did you play board games as a child? The bubbles were from the game Trouble. The maze was very well themed, and the fact it was based on childhood memories added a whole new scare factor.

    What is The Beast?

    Your First Upside Down Coaster?

    Good ol' Vortex for me. I was in a group of three. One promised to ride with me, but as I pulled my restraint down, he moved to the row in front of me with the other. He wanted to "watch me freak out" during the loops.

    Cedar Point opening weekend

    Just leave the camera at home. Seriously. You are not only breaking the law, but putting yourself and others in danger.

    Crazy question- Where's the water fountain from Coney located in the park?
