  1. I knew that. It's amazing knowing that our area played, and still plays, a significant role in the amusement industry.
  2. Awesome! Thank you so much! I think I've passed that place many times without realizing it.
  3. 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 Larrick's company, Custom Coasters International (CCI), were located in West Chester?
  4. 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.
  5. ^^^^My pleasure! They were a lot of fun to make. And yes, they play many country renditions of popular songs.
  6. 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.
  7. If I remember correctly, they played the theme to "The Pink Panther" by Henry Mancini near the end of the Paramount years.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?"
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. They played the Star Trek theme for the fireworks, that I remember well.
  13. ^^I've been looking for the Addams Family piece for a while. It's on YouTube, just not Spotify.
  14. 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 that played on International Street during the Paramount years. I searched through old forums and created a playlist of any music I could find from that era. These are the songs I have so far: - James Bond "Dr No." Theme by John Barry - Theme to Mission Impossible by Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. (At least a similar version) - "The Saint" by Orbital - Love theme from The Godfather by Nino Rota - "Breakfast Machine" from Pee Wee's Big Adventure by Danny Elfman - Love theme from Romeo and Juliet by Nino Rota - "Unchained Melody (Orchestral)" from Ghost by Maurice Jarre - "Top Gun Anthem" from Top Gun by Harold Faltermeyer - Love theme from St. Elmo's Fire by David Foster - "Italia" from The Talented Mr. Ripley by Gabriel Yared - "End Credits" from Star Trek: First Contact by Jerry Goldsmith - Theme to Superman by John Williams - Love theme from Chinatown by Jerry Goldsmith - "Rose" from Titanic by James Horner - "Axel F" from Beverly Hills Cop by Harold Faltermeyer - Theme to The Naked Gun by Ira Newborn - Theme to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope by John Williams - "Imperial March" from The Empire Strikes Back by John Williams - Main Theme from Forrest Gump by Alan Silvestri - End Titles from Driving Miss Daisy by Hans Zimmer - "Where the Money Is" from "The Distinguished Gentleman by Randy Edelman - "Marion's Theme / The Crate" from Raiders of the Lost Ark by John Williams. Are there any changes that I need to make or any songs that I am missing out of that list? I plan to provide the links to the playlists on here sometime in the near future. Thanks everyone!
  15. Riding through there with "Linus and Lucy" among other Vince Guaraldi Peanuts themes would be very fitting. Make the entrance a giant version of Snoopy's dog house. Does Hanna Barberra have the rights to the old Enchanted Voyage melody? It's a very catchy tune when you listen to it.
