  1. The online store is located under Attractions & Things To Do.
  2. I remember it well. I enjoyed it, riding it multiple times every year throughout its run at the park. It wasn't included with park admission. I remember it being $3.50 at one point. There was a good variety of animals, and you got an up close look at many of them. It was worth the cost to do it. I also experienced Kings Dominion's. The similarities between Kings Island's and Kings Dominion's were different.
  3. A little over 6,350 days ago is when the last repainting project for the Eiffel Tower began.
  4. The Lunch Basket served hot dogs, chili dogs, hamburgers, fries.
  5. Skyline Chili replaced The Lunch Basket in 1985 in Coney Mall.
  6. How's the view of the fireworks from Action Zone vs. Area 72?
  7. Blog post published yesterday. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2021/july/taste-your-way-around-the-world-at-grand-carnivale
  8. Tired act. Need some new material.
  9. There's nothing to see in the maintenance shop when the park is open, unless bare walls and a floor interest you.
  10. Saddened by this news. I met Paul in 1981. We did a couple of TV shows together talking about roller coasters in the 1980's and I enjoyed working with him on stories he was writing for industry publications. The last time I saw him was about a year ago when he visited Kings Island to ride Orion. He'll be missed by many.
  11. Really? https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2021/june/kings-island-is-now-on-tiktok
  12. The cars were labelled N or S (North, South) depending on the side they operated on.
  13. In 1972, The Racer had four cars per train. A fifth car was added in 1973.
