    2019 Season Passes

    I know it. This is why my wife and I typically get a pass every other year. They never give that great of perks for renewals. A Fast Lane and bring a friend free ticket? How about if you renew you get free Fun Pix pass for the next season or something? We did happen take this season off and are very happy that they decided to give the rest of 2018 with the purchase of a 2019 pass, so we're in for next year.

    Kings Island Announces Kings Mills Antique Autos for 2019!

    I'm happy about the cars. Was a little disappointed not to hear anything about a Racer refurbish though. Would love to hear that it's getting a nice new paint job at least.

    Kings Island 2019 Announcement on National Roller Coaster Day 8/16/18

    Wouldn't that be Adventure Express? Gets you all excited then lets you down at the end?

    2019 Season Passes

    We took this season off from getting a pass and I was just expecting the normal "1 free ticket for 2018". Getting the rest of the 2018 including Haunt and Winterfest is really above and beyond what I'd hope for. We're for sure getting passes now.

    KIC Podcast: Episode 1 - 2017 Year in Review

    Listened to it a while ago, but just getting in to comment. Great first episode guys! First couple episodes of most podcasts seem a little rough until they get their footing (heh, footing), but you guys sounded pretty good right from the beginning, so I imagine it will only get better as you explore the format and introduce different "segments". Really happy to have a podcast to listen to about Kings Island. Looking forward to the next one!

    So... is KIC ever going to create a podcast?

    Awesome. I've been medically diagnosed with podcast addiction, so I'll be listening!

    That's good to hear. I went on opening weekend and then the following weekend. I wanted to go back one more time but other activities and obligations got in the way so couldn't make it.

    I went twice this year and my impressions were that it was very very good. Great even. I loved how much effort they put into it. Felt much different than the last attempt at Winterfest. I loved how they renamed a lot of the shops and food places with Christmas themed names and signs. There's so much to see and do that even after 2 visits we still missed a lot. The only show that I saw was the elf one in the Festhaus which was really well done. Reminded me of old Kings Island level of shows. I don't know how they can ever go back to just having generic 70's/80's/90's singing revues there during the regular season when they proved that they can do much better. I did like the Eiffel Tower lights more in person than pictured, but I agree with @CoastersRZ's earlier post that the star needs to be filled with light instead of just an outline. If the lights can't go above the observation level, the star needs to be brighter and stand out more. Other than that, it was pretty cool. Also, what was up with the metal candy cane structures that were put up during the regular season? I thought they were going to be lit up, decorated or something, but since they were just dark I hardly noticed them. It was cool that they had them I guess, but seemed not worth the effort compared to other stuff. But yeah, I don't have much negative to say about it. Much better than I expected.

    ^My thoughts exactly. This means something. This is important.

    ^ Nope, just going by picture comparisons. Never made a "final statement". It just looks odd to me from what I've seen. I'll be seeing it in person on Saturday.

    I understand that if they want the lights to go all the way around this might have been the best way to do it, but I kind of prefer the old Winterfest tower look: The star should be at least slightly larger than the top of where the "tree" ends, or it looks odd.

    ^ Yeah @chugh43, that actually looks better than KI's. Below is from the King Island Jobs twitter (https://twitter.com/KingsIslandJobs): If that's how it looks at KI......eh.....little weird.
