  1. Early Rides

    One weekday morning when FoF was on ERT, it was raining but there were a fair number of people waiting outside the gates before opening. I was certain all the passholders were going to go back and ride it rather than whatever else was on ERT, to get out of the rain. To my surprise, literally no one did, and I got five zen rides, two with a ride op or two joining in, and finally three more with a couple GP on the train because it was after ERT by that point. I rode once per row and altogether took around 40 minutes. It was great! I love Flight of Fear ERT.
  2. Coasterstock 2018

    I picked the earliest one, I think it was 1:00. As time slots fill up they are removed from the list to choose from, and I think last year an additional later one was added sometime in the months after I registered.
  3. Kings Island's 2018 Operation Calendar

    ^that is pretty strange. I was wrong about it not being listed before, too. The app still shows 2017's calendar and it has last year's preview night as a grey circle, meaning "private event." I don't think it means anything in the grand scheme of things that it isn't on the calendar tho. I'm sure they aren't going to cancel it after announcing it.
  4. Kings Island's 2018 Operation Calendar

    I'm not sure what you're looking at but if it is the calendar with colored dots to indicate when they're open, preview day is generally not listed on it because they aren't open to everyone that day.
  5. Early Rides

    No, I'm pretty sure FoF wasn't on ERT at all since 2016. I can't find what was on ERT before July in 2017 for sure (pretty sure it was Mystic Timbers and Diamondback though), but here's July-October
  6. You Know It's the Off Season When...

    ...when I pull into the garage but wait a bit to go inside because Cars just came on the radio
  7. best and worst hallowen huant mazes of 2017

    Wasn't just last year. It has smelled like urine every year it's been open. I don't know what specifically the problem is.
  8. Early Rides

    I don't think you missed it. I suspect they will start with Mystic Timbers again this year, since it is still new and popular. edit: I went and checked out the season pass benefits page and it does mention specifically ERT on Mystic Timbers. I assume they will continue to rotate other rides in addition to it tho.
  9. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    With no winky face it is hard to tell someone means to be tongue-in-cheek.
  10. Ideas for the Crypt building?

    ^ the train and WWC are both Rivertown flats
  11. What could 2018 bring KI

    I still haven't heard a whisper of a rumor one way or the other. I'm obviously really hoping that KI continues their relationship with Les Productions Haut-Vol to bring another new Cirque show to the KI Theater. However the past three years, I had heard about as legitimate rumors as you can get without an official announcement by now, usually by the end of Cirque for the year. This time, silence. The only thing I know for sure is that the set for Origins was broken down and removed (a friend saved a couple small chunks for me), but it was expected that Origins would only have a two year run, just as Cirque Imagine did. Prior to its end I had assumed a new Haut-Vol production would replace it but I'm a little concerned not to have any verification. If not Cirque, I hope it is something else interesting and up to that quality!
  12. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    I don't think you are. Even though it still hasn't been officially announced, I personally feel it is pretty well established that the construction in Coney Mall will be a new restaurant with new menu items.
  13. Coasterstock 2018

    One of the benefits of buying early is you can be certain to pick The Beast tour time slot you prefer. I don't know whether they will send the t-shirt, lanyard, etc extra-early if you register now, but I don't think it is very likely. If you're certain you'll be able to schedule to go, and have the $ now, I say go for it! If you're not yet a coaster club member you may want to wait until closer to Coasterstock to join (so you'll have a later renewal date), but not so long that you have trouble getting your credentials before the event. They do not ask for specifics of your membership during the online registration, other than selecting which club you belong to.

    I just want to know how KI scored Ridiculously Photogenic Guy for the Mystic Timbers pic that's the background for the Coasterstock page... In the back seat there
  15. Coasterstock 2018

    All participants must have purchased a ticket to Coasterstock and registered, as well. Every registered attendee will receive a lanyard that must be shown to participate in any ERT, behind-the-scenes tour, or meal. If you wanted to have a friend attend with you during the regular park hours to ride rides with you, you could do that, they'd just need to entertain themselves for awhile if you want to do event things. But, no, you can't just bring a guest into those event activities.
