  1. Any updates on this book yet? I just bought Ken Miller’s Rolling Through The Years book for Cedar Point, and am excited for this one now. I loved the annual park maps/year by year break down in Ken’s book. Does your book include these at all, or is it more narrative driven? I feel super spoiled after Ken’s book, and am SO excited to have a book from my home park now.
  2. Honestly, am I wrong in just hoping that this is the beginning of repaving the parking lot? I believe some sprucing up around the property would be perfectly aligned with the park’s 50th anniversary. I know something as simple as a parking lot sounds trivial, but for first time visitors, the parking lot leaves a less than desired first impression. I love our park and would love for new people to have the best experience possible from the moment they enter the parking lot.
  3. No disappointment if I get to have a physical copy of the history of the park! Buying a few copies for friends as well. :)
  4. Honestly so excited for this book. Just discovered KIGhostGuy’s blog and was bummed to see there were no recent additions—now I see why. :D
  5. I've been updating my Ultimate Kings Island playlist featuring songs played and associated with the park. Features songs from a lot of the park's years. I started it last year. Feel free to follow and enjoy! https://open.spotify.com/user/123345110/playlist/7MU7wqYjMNTdFGdubnr00y
  6. and if you would like the link, here's the link to the current playlist. https://open.spotify.com/user/123345110/playlist/7MU7wqYjMNTdFGdubnr00y
  7. I went ahead and updated my playlist with all the songs listed above and in the playlists. If you have any more requests, feel free to tell me.
  8. I've updated the playlist to include the songs that have been mentioned. I will be adding more music as it is mentioned in the forum. I will make a ride music playlist when I'm able to get time to go through and determine what songs were on ride music. Thanks for the help guys!
  9. Yes they did. It should be on the playlist. The entire Top Gun soundtrack was played.
  10. I was at the park on Tuesday and it appeared to seem that they were bringing pieces back to the ride to potentially reassemble? Maybe they just needed to get a few replacement parts to fix whatever was wrong.
  11. I can potentially make one for you. I just have to find a list of songs that is played and go through my list to find songs that are played on The Beast.
  12. Hey guys! So, I recently creeped through the forums and made a playlist of songs played at Kings Island, songs that made me think of Kings Island, and songs that made a lot of the forum members thought of when thinking of Kings Island. I thought I would share it here for you guys to enjoy. If you have any additional songs that you've heard or remind you of Kings Island, share it here and I will add it to the playlist. The songs are timeless, so it doesn't matter how old or new the song is! I hope to have an amazing playlist I can play every time I go to the park. The playlist can be found here: https://open.spotify.com/user/123345110/playlist/7MU7wqYjMNTdFGdubnr00y
  13. I like it. I just don't know if it would be a benefit to the park financially. Even if the ride is closed, they would still have to do maintenance to the track of The Vortex to ensure that the supports don't collapse and that the track is sturdy.
  14. As much as i'd love to see a Giga at KI, I am quite discouraged from it. I am a diehard KI fan, but I have plenty of friends that prefer CP. Seeing as CP is seen as more of a thrill park, I constantly feel like that is where CF would prefer to install any planned Gigas in Ohio. I know there will be a Giga at KI one day, but I feel like it won't be for a VERY long time.
  15. I really like the idea, I just feel like it's too soon to be thinking of any plans like this. Plus, I find it really unlikely. Even though KI enthusiasts like us would enjoy seeing such a thing done to such an iconic ride, the public that come into the park would probably think the abandoned coaster was an eyesore (should I remind you of SOB?)
