  1. Official: WinterFest 2017

    Maybe they could use the new LED lights on the Eiffel Tower cupola to illuminate the "canopy" some more. Also, I didn't know Carowinds was going to transform the Carolina Sky Tower into a tree again. Looks cool!
  2. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Or they could sell Tex Mex food with German ingredients; they could call them Oktoberfest Burritos and Tacos. Tortilla shell with Gliers Goetta, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese. Blondy, pipe dreaming...
  3. Official: WinterFest 2017

    I just went past there tonight. The Boo Blasters building does look to be lighting up at night with a new package.
  4. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    From Kings Island PR's Snapchat. I can definitely see the truck in front of Emporium now. False alarm.
  5. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Ah, true. Trees were in the way, so it was hard to tell.
  6. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    I took a screenshot of the Snap story. Do I need a specific citation in order to post it, or do I give credit to their Snapchat?
  7. Get rid of one coaster- The Poll

    That's true. Another possibility I thought of would be to add an RMC topper track wooden coaster in this location. It would really round out the park's collection of wooden roller coasters.
  8. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    On Kings Island's official Snapchat story today, they posted a photo of the Royal Fountain ice skating rink on International Street with a giant crane in the background in the Coney Mall area.
  9. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    Panda could possibly be placed where Skyline is inside the Alpine lodge, Mandarin Cuisine was there for a couple of years during the Paramount/CBS years. However, Skyline seems pretty popular. Another possibility would be to add a sixth building to International Street, with a Chinese Pagoda fa├žade. It would help enhance the theming and atmosphere on International Street, and update it to accommodate other "international" countries.
  10. Get rid of one coaster- The Poll

    I chose Backlot Stunt Coaster. The placement is one problem I agree with. Another problem is the capacity. Because the ride launches 12 people per train, the lines are always long compared to other rides in the park. The location would be perfect for a B&M dive coaster in the future, with a pathway that goes underneath, connecting Coney Mall to Rivertown.
  11. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    How high is the demand for German food at Kings Island? They introduced some German food in 2013, but that quietly disappeared from the menu after two seasons. If the park decides to bring back some German theming, Bavarian music would definitely be a plus. Much like how the International Street playlist enhanced the atmosphere, thematically fitting music could help Oktoberfest. Maybe something like the music from Busch Gardens Williamsburg:
  12. On The Racer last season, I was able to see some wooden track ties for what I figured was for future track maintenence. Since Dinosaurs Alive is near the back of Coney Mall, the best view is from the Blue Racer turnaround, right hand side of the car. You could even see the DA associates waving as you zoom past, so we'd probably be able to see something. No pictures, though, for obvious reasons.
  13. Scooby Let Me Down.

    It would be cool to see a Peanuts themed version of the Enchanted Voyage in that building. It would be cool to see an animatronic snail at the beginning greeting guests when the ride begins. Unless, of course, the rights to the snail belong to Hanna-Barbera. "Have a huh-huh-huh-happy day!"
  14. New Director of Communications - Chad Showalter

    Welcome Chad! You seem to have a love and interest in the park, which is great for your position!
  15. New ride for Kennywood?

    I have heard rumors of another wooden coaster; an RMC topper track wooden coaster. It's been discussed as a possible rumor for a while for the 2019 season.
