  1. New Music throughout the park

    Last season they had "Gusty Garden Galaxy" from Super Mario Galaxy as part of the playlist. Dimitri Tiomkin's "The High and the Mighty" was also playing last season.
  2. New Music throughout the park

    I haven't had a chance to listen to the International Street playlist closely yet, but I could make out "Escape/ Chase/ Saying Goodbye" from ET by John Williams (Last season they played the end credit music which featured a segment of this piece) and "Harry's Wonderous World" from the Harry Potter movies, also by John Williams. My mother told me she heard the theme to "Exodus" by Ernest Gold. From what I've heard, the playlist is close to having similar music to the early days of the park.
  3. New Music throughout the park

    I walked into work on Sunday and noticed they were playing some sort of march over the speakers on International Street, but I didn't know the name of it. I really liked the playlist this year from what I could hear of it. I got to hear a whole lot of Rivertown music last weekend as well. Very well done.
  4. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Apparently the park isn't allowed to build a ride above 399 feet tall because of the nearby Warren County airport, but that's just what I have heard somewhere.
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    If Cedar Fair still worked with Intamin, it would have been cool to see a Giga that was unique from Intimidator 305 and Millennium Force. I know there are quite a few people that wanted a Top Thrill Dragster clone at KI, but height restrictions from the FAA hinder that possibility. The closest coaster to that would be something like Red Force at Ferrari Land at PortAventura World. However, I've heard somewhere that that coaster doesn't count as a Giga, despite being within the 300-399 foot height range. Obviously won't happen, nor would it ever happen, but that was an idea I thought of.
  6. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    Looks awesome, especially with the Tower in the background.
  7. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    I noticed that the booth behind Emporium, which was set up for skate rentals during Winterfest and replaced the arcade games, is still set up. Could there possibly be a use for that during the regular season in coming years?
  8. WCPO: Kings Island rides we wish had never gone away

    For me... Kenton's Cove Keelboat Canal- Never got to ride it, as it was removed before I was tall enough, but it tied in so well with Rivertown. Cuddle Up- Another ride before my time, but a classic that my parents loved, with my dad saying he "never truly appreciated the engineering of that ride until it was gone." Enchanted Voyage- Yet another ride before my time, but after riding It's A Small World at Disney World back in 2015 during a high school choir trip, this ride would have been cool to see themed to Peanuts, with the boats entering and exiting through Snoopy's dog house rather than a giant television. And let's not forget the snail wishing riders to "Have a huh huh huh happy day!" Les Taxis/ Ohio Overland Auto Livery- This one I did ride. Very enjoyable and quiet experience. The Auto Livery side fit in very well with Rivertown and the old time Cincinnati theming, and Les Taxis looked very nice from the midway walking towards the Tower. Backlot really kind of clashes with Coney Mall and Rivertown. It can be a fun coaster, but it can't top the Antique Cars.

    The Clown Band would be fantastic. With a lot of old Kings Island staples coming back and being paid homage to, I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually do bring them back.
  10. The Racer on Opening Day 2018

    I can't wait to ride it this season. I rode it last summer with my aunt and uncle. I enjoyed it, they didn't (granted they sat in the back of the car). Hopefully I can convince them to ride again this season.

    That would require a lot of downtime for the tower. I also learned from one of the ride associates a few years back that it burned the paint off.
  12. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I'd say that if it were to angle its way near Kings Island Drive at about a 135 degree angle rather than 90 degrees, it would miss the Dog Street Cemetery. They could also rebuild that roadway so the coaster tunnels underneath like the Carowinds entrance plaza and Hades at Mt. Olympus. But that still leaves the problem of zoning and Great Wolf Lodge. It would possibly work if the park bought Great Wolf, but I don't think they would nor do I think they're interested in selling. But it is, again, a very interesting idea as it's different from the other Cedar Fair Giga coasters.
  13. The Giga Speculation Thread

    That would go right near the cemetery, if not on top of it. Not only that, but it's right on the property line of Great Wolf Lodge. It is an interesting concept I must say.
  14. The Giga Speculation Thread

    The tree removal may just be a continuing removal of Ash trees around these areas, especially since The Beast is tightly packed near the woods and they may not want a downed tree to damage the ride.
