    I agree about Action Zone. I think a dark forest theme could be cool and could transition nicely from the more tree filled Oktoberfest. Banshee and Bat would fit in well and could easily retheme the remaining rides and building. Mostly some paint and plant some more trees around and it’s set. Could even connect it more to Oktoberfest and theme it around the Black Forest.

    R & R Designs is still around. It would be great if they could do a large Adventure Express refurbishment a la the Calico Mine Ride renovation at Knott's.

    They could still do small expansion in X-Base if they wanted by utilizing the open area to the left when walking in that would go behind FoF's photo booth/exit. Considering the photo booth is rarely ever open anymore they could even tear that down to open up the pathway more for an expansion with a flat and possibly a quick service food area.

    Coaster - Yay!

    Chances are the coaster will long outlast the NFL licensing. My mind recalls how "Dale Earnhardt's Intimidator 305" is now just referred to by KD as simply "Intimidator 305."

    Would love a large flume ride back again like KCKC. It would probably be in my top 3. At least we have RFYLCB, it's still a good flume but one with a bigger drop would be nice too.

    I would like to see black supports with forest green track and orange trains for the section where it is going to run parallel to The Beast break run.  That would really enhance the worst part of The Beast.  Especially if they can make that section roar.  I think that would really add to The Beast experience.  Hearing an oncoming roar, looking over and through the trees catching a glimpse of something big and orange booking through the forest at 80-90 MPH.

    I personally hope it gets removed. The other buildings used strictly for haunt are more hidden from the main paths, Blackout is behind a fence, Urgent Scare back in the old theatre inside The Racer turnaround, the crypt building is obvious but it isn't a clear sign of haunt. Whereas Killmart is right on the main strip of Coney Mall and it just looks bad with it being a large boarded up building made to look dilapidated. It is a decent theme and a newer house but think it would be better served to be revamped in another area.

    Skyride. It would be nice to have on long Kings Island days. It looked so cool as well.
    I'd also would love to see King Cobra come back. I would absolutely like to ride it.

    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.

    In past years when the park was open on Easter, it was a ghost town, which is likely why they will not be open on Easter this year.

    purdude86 got a reaction from Maverick44 in Haunt 2019 Discussion   
    Fridays are usually a little slower since it's night only so people tend to prefer to go for the full day saturday. But Saturdays often start off pretty slow and jsut get progressively busier as the day progresses. It does get pretty crowded but when the mazes first open the ride lines usually die down for a bit while people go to the mazes then slowly build as people go to get night rides in. I haven't done it yet either but have heard that Sundays are usually pretty calm as it's only open during the day and does none of the scary stuff or mazes, just has the family friendly events so the big thrill rides are usually not too busy as its a day focused more on family.

    I'm very excited for this change. To me the RHoF Grill stuck out in a bad way where it was. And especially after the addition of Mystic Timbers it looked really bad to me. It was surrounded by nice Rivertown theming that it didn't belong to at all. This change will help improve that area greatly for me. RFYLCB even gives a nice transition from Planet Snoopy to Rivertown with it being a bit of a combination of the two.

    The Crypt building is used for a very popular haunt maze. I doubt they would remove it for something as high maintenance as a madhouse. Seeing as they just removed a totally separate maintenance nightmare by Vekoma...

    purdude86 got a reaction from westcoaster in Phantom Therater......returns?   
    This exactly is part of the reason why I could see it going pack to Planet Snoopy area. Up until Scooby Doo the ride building was classified as part of the kids area. The Scooby Doo licensing and theming necessitated the change to International Street. The boat rides prior to Phantom were part of Hanna Barbara Land and even on the maps it shows Phantom Theater as being part of it too. So the theming of the ride not fitting the theme of Nickelodeon/Peanuts seems to be the only real reason it's an International Street attraction. They could easily change it to Peanuts and make it a new addition to the land. To me it makes sense as the entrance is in the land itself pretty much. This would also help to solidify again the park's hold on best kid's area. It has a strong line up as is with many great rides for both kids and families, multiple coasters, shows, petting zoo, and a log flume. Add a dark ride into the mix and no other regional park comes close to beating it.

    This looks great so far. I'm sure we will get a lot more information towards the end of summer. Makes sense that they would give this announcement with just a few stats right now as I'm sure major construction is about to start and business will be picking up getting into spring break season then summer. So this will let people know what is going on there, but leaving a lot of it like name, full layout, etc. a mystery now gives them something to announce and continue hype later this year, as well as keep attention on this season and Tigris as it is the new ride. Don't want to completely ignore it.

    There is.
    When Hanna Barbera went the way of Geauga Lake from Kings Island, they still had Scooby Doo and the Haunted Castle - which operated on a different license from the Sally Dark Ride Corporation.  The problem was, Scooby couldn't exist in the same "universe" as Nickelodeon, so the compromise they were able to come up with was to say that it was on I-Street.  That just hasn't really changed.
