  1. @sixohdieselrage I admit I have not seen the final product in person yet, and that Kings Island did a lot of work this offseason to improve the guest experience, but there is a reason we have the saying “The devil is in the details” the small stuff is what usually makes some great from just ok.
  2. I admit I have not seen the fountain in person, but from the photos posted I am not impressed. I have three big concerns with the new fountain. 1. The water jets are small and not nearly as significant as they were, leading to a cheaper appearance. Before they water volume was large and felt like a royal fountain. 2. The ligh towers look like temporary structures put up for everyday events. If they are permitted, which they appear to be, why not install something more permanent, less intrusive, or themed. I know asking for light towers that rise up only at night (aka Disney) is a lot to ask for from a regional park, but these light towers are also not good solution. 3. The lighting at night on the fountain likes very flat, boring, and weak. In the photos it gave no depth to the water and was not impressive at all. From the initial photos this new royal fountain is weak cheaper looking replacement to what was there. just my thoughts based on what I have seen from photos only, Hopefully in person the fountain is much more impressive.
  3. I just saw a public photo of the renovated International Street on a Cincinnati news website. It looks so much better, but I do have one major issue with the renovation. I will wait to share it until after Friday, or when others comment on the public photo.
  4. Does anyone have pictures of the interior of the festhaus in the early years? If I remember correctly, the stage originally had a gazebo on either side with an animatronic German band, and the side walls had alpine scenes on them.
  5. I was just looking at the webcam and noticed that for the past couple weeks the Coney Mall arch was gone, and today it looks like the bases for the arch have also been removed. Does anyone know if the arch will return or is gone for good just like the the poor Festhaus clock, continueing the trend of removing themed areas in the park?

    When I was at Kings Island this summer i noticed the Festhaus has now lost all of its exterior theming including the clock, to go with the interior lose several years back. Is this the look going forward for the building, A big gerneric building for a food court and show? I remember way back, pre-Paramount, when it had great theming both inside and out. I Wish some of the off season improvements would include bringing back some of the building's theme.
  7. Has anyone heard anything on the rumored fountain upgrade for KI next year?
