  1. Green boarding passes

    Green sheets are probably one of the most misunderstood elements of Kings Island... I have been asked before to wait one train for rides. I don't mind it at all. It is not a big deal to me. And knowing they wait the same amount of time (And perhaps more if they've overestimated the wait time) for the ride should shut those onlookers up. One of my friends who works in my department has a skin condition (ezkema?) That prevents her from sweating. During hot and busy days up at Cedar Point or any other theme park. She rightfully requests a green sheet. If she wouldn't do that with the long lines during a hot busy day. She would most likely become extremely overheated and pass out. It's a useful tool to help those with a disability, or even a simple medical condition that causes overheating easy, to wait in line with everyone else while being able to enjoy the rides and park with everyone else. And those who confront those who wait the same amount of time as everyone else. No matter what row it is. Should have nothing to say. I personally have autism. I work and thrive in my department. I've actually never had the inclination to even use a green sheet mostly because I am able to find myself enjoying waiting especially with my friends. But for those who are unable to. It's the absolute perfect thing. And something nobody should be complaining about.
  2. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    Here's the thing. I was in the same boat as you in say 2016. That I would never get a dining plan due to long lines and bad service. My perspective changed working at ki. I have seen some food associates who do not care about their jobs at all. Some who actually do and continue to do so and strive to be the best. But most importantly I've seen some go from completely caring to being worn down not caring associates due to so many negative experiences on the job. There's a reason why food can be understaffed. It's hard to find people. And those who are willing to jump the cliff to join are often greeted with long hours long lines, rude guests and little to no positive feedback. Remember. Next time you visit. While that doesn't excuse bad service, to put yourself in their shoes.

    As long as there's a resteraunt open. Yes.

    I have a fully decked out Platinum Pass for this season. Despite being an associate, I go to the park so often that a Dining Plan, FunPix and Drink Plan really work out for me. It is my first year for a dining plan, it is going to be interesting. Really hoping the initial quirks in past years have been smoothed over. I guess it is kind of funny that I am following the advice of most sales people for companies. Purchase and use the product you sell to guests (customers). I will definitely use all of these a lot however, I visited the park over 64 times last year.... so. Drink Plan is one of the most undervalued products at KI. So convenient! $32.09 after tax for free drinks all season. Its nice!

    The Ohio River is now forecasted to crest at 60 feet. Highest since March 1997 which was 64.7 feet.

    We would not have had a Kings Island in present form if they had sold to Apollo.

    I'm very worried about the river. At 59 feet half of new Richmond becomes under water. All of Coney island and riverbend is submerged. In fact tonight new Richmond declared s state of emergency. If some of these models are correct. With rainfall totals I've seen ranging from even the most conservative model at 3.5 inches to some showing upwards of 7 inches of rain until Sunday. This could turn into a disaster. I wouldn't cross out yet the possibility of it cresting near 1997 levels... gulp even a stretch of exceeding those levels. It all depends on where the rain falls. Just upstream like in 1997 would be the worst case scenario.
  10. What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    Usually they have someone guide you to a station. It's usually our thing to greet the guest coming up. Unless we were busy it's unusual that happened to you. Sorry about that. Just know that's usually not what happens.
  11. re-processing season passes?

    I believe so? Otherwise you can retake your pic at the park.
  12. re-processing season passes?

    We usually open sales and season pass processing for a couple of hours during processing days. It's usually on weekends a couple of weeks before opening day. Usually in afternoon. Don't know specifics of hours.
  13. re-processing season passes?

    So what you do is just go to sales. As long as you have your old passes we can simply exchange them and give you a new card at no cost. If you don't have your card but renewed we can look you up.
  14. What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    Agreed with first part. Second part I disagree with. Season pass has some good people staffed. And while it's a bit chaotic on busy days they do a good job of trying to level that out. They try their best to make a good first impression. And it is fairly high capacity when fully staffed.

    I may be a little biased but a renovated Sales and Season Pass Building would be fantastic! As long as we don't have to use speakers. Front Gate has a fantastic building and truly serves it purpose but a little touch up on the outside to make it a little bit more appealing would do wonders for the Front Gate Area. Plus.... LIGHTS IN THE FRONT GATE PLAZA would be fantastic. It is very hard for me to see people come up with our part of the Front Gate mostly dark at night.
