  1. I can see them doing a couple of things, considering Cedar Fair's recent trends at other parks. 1. Return of the Phantom Theatre. Unfortunately it will consist of screens to shoot at with minimum animatronics, like Knott's new Berry Tales. 2. Returning the scenery to the railroad and possibly have live action actors like they are doing with the boat ride at Cedar Point. 3. A museum. Action Theater is a good spot. The Enchanted Theater might be better. 4. Retheme Action Zone to Jungle theme like they did with King's Dominion. Action Zones theming wasn't that great to begin with. 5. Maybe add a few rides to Oktoberfest. Viking Fury has been holding down the fort for almost 30 years while Adventure Express just seems lost.
  2. My first trip to Kings Island was in 1984 or 5. A few things that I remember that first year that are no longer around in Hanna-Barbera Land is The Smurf Ride of course, the elephant fountain, they also had these little robotic animals that had some kind of controls on them to change direction, they didn't work too well, McScrappys Farm, and an interactive fountain that I cannot find any pictures of. It is one of those pay a quarter and shoot water at the target kind of thing. This had Huckleberry Hound, and Quickdraw, Yogi and others. It was taken out when Splat City came in.
  3. I won't go by year by year, but, I'll go area by area. I'm afraid I'm going to show my Otaku side here. International Street: Ad a zipline that goes from the first deck of the Eiffel Tower to the old International Restaurant. Turn tower gardens into a Kings Island History exhibit like what they did for KI 20th anniversary where Skylab used to be. Coney Mall: Put in three flat rides where flat rides used to be but were not replaced. Skylab, Flying Eagles, Flight Commander. I'd say a Gerstlaur Sky Roller, Zamperla Wave Blaster, Chance Free Style. Return the backwards Racer, and motion seats in the FX Theater. Make an original 3D Motion film based on Phantom Theater. Rivertown: Return the scenery and animations to the train. There is a great wooded area over by The Beast behind the old Crypt building. This would be great for another river type ride. I'd say a Bayou themed Splash Battle. Get rid of the Crypt building and build an S & S Free Fly X Oktoberfest: I'm not sure what to do here since there is not much in the way of room. Perhaps maybe a giant wheel, or an ABC Rides Giant Smart Swing http://www.abc-engineering.ch/cms/front_content.php?idart=100 Planet Snoopy: Give the Peanuts the boot and get a cartoon company that has current programming. Since Hanna-Barbera no longer exists but in name only and Six Flags doesn't seem to want to do anything with the product, Time-Warner is a free agent anyway since they no longer own Six Flags, I'd go with Cartoon Network. It brings back some of the old Hanna-Barbera Characters as well as current CN characters. I'd gut out Boo Blasters and the old Enchanted Theater and put in an Adventure Time dark ride where you battle Pepper's Ghost monsters, The Ice King and Marceline. An SB International Flintstones Themed Car Ride. A Kid's Next Door Themed Heege Tower Ride. Zierer Jet Skis. I kind of went Legoland on this, but, I kind of wanted a kid's area that wasn't a copycat area of Six Flags or every other family owned park. Action Zone: Once Paramount left Action Zone just became another Coney Mall with no real theme. I fact the only ride themed after the movie it was named after was Top Gun. Face//Off and Drop Zone had a movie name, but, no real theme. I wanted to make a theme area based on Sega's Joypolis http://tokyo-joypolis.com/ and J-World Tokyo http://www.namco.co.jp/tp/j-world/. Shonen Jump's Action Zone featuring anime and manga shows and characters from Viz medias Shonen Jump magazine. Amazon Falls will be remodeled and extended covered and themed to One Piece. Banshee will remained the same. It's the only ride in the area without a stupid name. Drop Tower will be renamed and themed to Fullmetal Alchemist, Fullmetal Freefall, and so on. Interactive games, and shows. One questions. How often is Timber Wolf used? It doesn't seem like it is used at all.
  4. 1. Wild Animal Habitat Monorail 2. Phantom Theater 3. Racer Backwards 4.Tomb Raider 5. Smurfs Enchanted Voyage 6. King Cobra 7. Flying Eagles 8. Spongebob 3D 9. Kenton Coves Keelboat Canal I will have to add, and they aren't rides, The Elephant Fountain, The Hanna-Barbera Interactive Fountain with the water guns, the big hedge canopy between HB Land and Rivertown, I miss too.
