  1. Going by when the episode aired in relation to park development that occurred shortly thereafter, and Mike Brady saying the plans were for a "new area of the park," my guess is he was the one who designed Lion Country Safari for the 1974 season.
  2. I knew that. It's amazing knowing that our area played, and still plays, a significant role in the amusement industry.
  3. Awesome! Thank you so much! I think I've passed that place many times without realizing it.
  4. Hey guys, long time no post. I noticed on the Kings Island discussion page on the forum menu, a topic was brought up regarding the Dinn Corporation wooden coaster that was planned for the 1992 season before Dinn closed their operations. But there was one thing that I always found interesting about Dinn. Their headquarters were located in West Chester, Ohio, not far from Mason in Butler County. I've lived in the West Chester my entire life and have always found it amazing that a major player in the amusement industry was located there. Does anyone know where exactly they and Denise Dinn La
  5. The Racer gets over 1 million riders each season with only Diamondback, Banshee, and Mystic Timbers getting more riders. It's a walk on because it can launch 60 people at a time because of the two loading platforms, compared to 28 people on Vortex and 32 people on Banshee and Diamondback.
  6. ^^^^My pleasure! They were a lot of fun to make. And yes, they play many country renditions of popular songs.
  7. Hey! Long time no update. My Spotify playlists are ready to be released. A few songs are missing, some are unavailable, but I tried my best to get them as accurate as possible.
  8. If I remember correctly, they played the theme to "The Pink Panther" by Henry Mancini near the end of the Paramount years.
  9. Yes, "Fratelli Chase" by David Grusin. I was digging through old forums to see if I missed any from the original list and that was one that was listed, along with Beetlejuice by Danny Elfman, which they play during Haunt. I'll be sure to add one of the Addams Family themes, even if it isn't exact. If it ever becomes available, I'll be sure to replace it with the right track.
  10. I found other songs from other films, such as The Goonies and Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I believe I read that they played "Moon River" by Henry Mancini from Breakfast at Tiffany's and "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis. The only thing Addams Family related I could find, aside from the main theme from the sitcom, was a 1 minute or so long piano cover of "A Party... For Me?"
  11. My pleasure @AZ Kinda Guy! I actually made a Rivertown playlist with the Pickin' On Series. I'm missing a few songs, but it has a good number of them.
  12. It's on the album, however it wouldn't let me choose it. I did find a piano rendition of the waltz portion of "A Party... For Me?" on The Bucket List album.
  13. They played the Star Trek theme for the fireworks, that I remember well.
  14. ^^I've been looking for the Addams Family piece for a while. It's on YouTube, just not Spotify.
  15. Hey! It's been a while since I've posted on here. I decided to comment on this thread rather than start a new thread since there are so many threads on this topic. As we've discussed, Kings Island has been making improvements to the soundtrack heard around the park, namely International Street and Rivertown. In my free time, I pieced together some playlists on Spotify of International Street from 2017 and 2018 as well as Rivertown. As a kid, I grew up going to the park under Paramount and eventually CBS/Viacom. One day, I decided that it would be cool to make a playlist of the music
