  1. Is Gould Manufacturing going to be the ones making the Antique Cars? They're the only manufacturer of those rides that can build them close enough to the original Arrow Development model we had.
  2. Move Panda Express to the Swiss building on International Street where Skyline is and sell Gliers Goetta Dogs with Sauerkraut and German Potato Salad in Festhaus.

    What Else Do You Want To Come Back?

    The Clown Band- More roaming entertainment like in the 70s and 80s. Kenton's Cove Keelboat Canal- The big box of fun needs to go "International" Street- Maybe add some elephant ears to the menu since they have them at the Rivertown Funnel Cake stand, flags of the corresponding countries on the buildings.

    It looks like a good sized plot of land to me. It's not as large as the original as that had the Rivertown side and Coney Mall side.

    Did it say specifically that it was for Coney Mall? I only read a B&M project within the next few years.

    No Day At Kings Island Is Complete Without...

    Ride on The Racer.

    The Firehawk back-story...

    I remember hearing somewhere that X Flight was supposed to be at Kings Island the whole time. This adds a whole new meaning to "one of our own."

    Kings Island Confirms removal of Coaster

    If there is an announcement video, I hope it's similar to the Cedar Point videos like the ones for the closures of Mantis and Mean Streak. https://youtu.be/IkkRRK_oAaQ

    Just so long as it isn't The Racer that's leaving, I'll probably be alright with the announcement.

    Kings Island Confirms removal of Coaster

    If I remember correctly, Invertigo, when it was Face/Off, was advertised as (Paramount's) Kings Island's twelfth coaster. Many Vekoma Boomerangs are leaving the Cedar Fair chain.

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    I remember when the park did something similar back in 2015 when they teased that something from 1972 was being removed for 2016. Many thought it was The Racer, but it turned out to be the old toll booths out front for the new north entrance. https://www.indystar.com/story/news/2015/08/18/whats-next-kings-island-announcement-planned/31954197/ Perhaps it's not a ride or something inside the park that'sgoing to be gone. What's big and outside of the park? My guess is that maybe it's the parking lot sign and here's why... "The winds are eerily calm..." On September 27, 2003, the original parking lot marquee fell over in a windstorm https://coasterbuzz.com/Forums/Topic/kings-island-sign-collapses-overnight If the winds are eerily calm, the sign might be getting removed or receiving a serious facelift by the park rather than a sudden accident requiring the replacement. "... the ill fated demise of one of our own." Now this is something interesting. Perhaps the words on the little sign near the funeral scene was not referring to one of the park's own attractions, but rather the park is playing around with the idea that the sign is referring to itself and "one of it's own" is going away. That's just my theory. Usually if an attraction is going away then the park announces it ahead of its closure in order for fans to get their last rides in.

    Someone mentioned how there are old, dead flowers and new flowers to suggest it died twice. Could mean two things. First, Dinosaurs Alive is still back in the woods, just closed to the public and no Dinosaurs, and it's officially going to be removed. Secondly, if it's Firehawk, it could symbolize how it "died" when X-Flight was removed from Geauga Lake and it's going to "die" again.

    The only reason I think it's a coaster or a ride/attraction is because I dont think people would pay attention if there were a gravestone for just the old Tomb Raider building. That being said, it could be Action Theater as that is/was an attraction.

    It would be interesting to see if it gets removed. I know the park is able to expand without removing any rides, but removing Firehawk would open up access to the back woods and more onto the LCS land. It would be weird to see it leave. It looks pretty good where it is from the midway.
