  1. Looks like these posters and announcement date had nothing to do with the actual attraction we're getting for 2019. I was really hoping that Adventure Express would get some love, or heck, even The Racer. I kind of wish they'd take a season and refresh some of the older rides "Something old will be new again". I guess I was thinking more about a refresh rather than a reinstallation of an old ride. Oh well, looks like I was wrong.
  2. The posters found at Cedar Fair had obvious nods to both Son of Beast and Adventure Express. "Number 5 is Alive" and "Track 2 is no longer is use and has been permanently abandoned" were written on the posters. Pair that with the announcement being on National Rollercoaster Day and you can't help but speculate differently. I never thought we were getting a rebuild of Son of Beast, that's never happening. However, I figured a revamp of Adventure Express was highly possible. Just not sure what all the teaser posters were getting at. How did they have anything to do with Antique Cars? Were we mislead?
  3. This is great and all, but what was all that stuff about "Outpost 5" and the quotes from the Adventure Express loading station on the posters found at Cedar Point? Not sure how the Antique Cars fit in with all the posters and leaks that have come out recently.

    iPhone or Android

    Die hard Android/PC guy here! I love my Android and wouldn't change for any reason. I love the ability to customize my phone and the option to add an SD card is priceless.

    Current wait times

    Just curious, what are the wait times like for tonight's passholder event?

    What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    Maybe we could start a campaign and our tagline could be "Make Vortex Smooth Again." We could get hats, T-Shirts and everything!

    Kings Island's 2018 Operation Calendar

    My question is this: If they're not going to limit it's availability and events are no longer truly exclusive, then why offer both the Gold Pass and Regular Pass options? My opinion is that they should just merge them and have one option. Why in the world would someone buy a Regular pass over a Gold one? Just seems odd to have both options. Platinum options makes sense since it offers more benefits, so maybe they just have two options - Gold and Platinum.

    Kings Island's 2018 Operation Calendar

    I guess when I say "perks" I'm talking about the perks that are offered with the Gold Pass (Early Ride Times, Preview Nights, etc). The things I've been seeing in recent years though, is that pretty much everyone seems to have a Gold Pass, and it seems like Gold Passes are offered longer than they used to be. Now, I'm not against anyone buying a Gold Pass. By all means, if a Gold Pass is available for purchase, of course you should buy one. However, when you get to exclusive nights and find out they're not so "exclusive," then it makes you wonder what the actual perk of having a Gold Pass really is. Being admitted into an "exclusive" event should feel special. It's not though, cause everyone else is there too. So in my opinion, it kind of defeats the purpose. And maybe others on here can clear things up, but does it seem in more recent years that the Gold Pass is available for purchase longer than it used to be? Heck, now it seems like the Gold Pass is available towards the end of one season through about May of the next season. It feels like back in the day, the Gold Pass had limited availability - like you only had a short amount of time to purchase one before it disappeared. Maybe it's just me, perhaps I'm not remembering correctly.

    Kings Island's 2018 Operation Calendar

    Is it just me, or does having a Gold Pass feels like less and less of a perk with each passing year. At this point I feel like they should just drop the word "Gold" and just refer to it as a Season Pass since basically everyone who gets a pass has a Gold Pass. Please understand that I'm not complaining, just expressing my opinion based on my observations as a pass holder for the majority of my life. Lately, though, there really doesn't seem like there is much difference between Gold and Regular. Yes, Gold offers "Perks" but is it really a perk when everyone has one? Is a Gold Pass Preview Night really a "Exclusive" when the lines are longer than a regular operating day? If a Gold Pass is there to offer people exclusive events, then I feel it should be a little harder for everyone to obtain one. Again, I'm not complaining and not trying to start a big discussion. Just voicing my opinion of the whole thing based on my observations.

    Ban the single rider line

    Although I can see both viewpoints in regards to this topic, I'm afraid I'm going to have to side with the OP on this one. Sure it's probably not a big deal when a handful of people (or groups) decide to get in the single rider line. This might help to fill some holes and be able to load the train completely. However, what if everyone who wanted to ride Mystic Timbers caught onto this? What if everyone said, "Ah screw the main queue, we'll just get in the single rider line and ride separate." Sure when it's just a handful of people it's not a big deal, but if more and more groups started using Single Rider line, then it could become a problem. It's kind of a tricky situation. Since there are very few people abusing this line, it's kind of a non-issue. However, if more and more groups are allowed to abuse this line, then it could definitely become an issue.

    Scooby Let Me Down.

    I can confidently say I've had guns (blasters) that didn't work. I've ridden this ride every single season since it was converted to a blaster-type ride as Scooby-Doo. I can usually rack up a pretty high score, however, there are times when I can shoot at everything and nothing happens. The props don't respond and no points are added to my score. It's not that I don't know what I'm doing or that I don't know how to aim, believe me. There have been times that I've tried every single gun in the car and can't get anything to work. Perhaps it's just a problem with the system and not with the blasters themselves. Regardless, I can confidently say that there is the occasional ride where nothing seems to work.

    Current wait times

    ^ My wife and I were headed out to the Pass Holder Preview Night, but decided to skip once I started hearing reports and seeing pictures. A 4 hour wait for Mystic Timbers? Ain't nobody got time for that! Apparently there ARE that many passholders.

    Improving Que Lines

    Some of the best memories I have are my friends and I out at KI in the summers. We'd go up a lot on weekday evenings in the summer and since it wasn't too crowded, we'd run from ride to ride. We'd joke, laugh, goof around. There's nothing like growing up at KI and getting to enjoy it with your friends. Good times.
