  1. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    It's crazy how much I'm hoping they still have baked sweet potatoes as a side at the new Coney BBQ this weekend. I'm all in with the new food options so far! update: I'm in line and see sweet potates!
  2. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    I haven't done too much searching of the park yet this season, but I would bet on Ms. Pacman having been moved to one of the arcades rather than being removed entirely. If I see it, I'll let you know.
  3. Employee dress codes

    Welcome to KIC! The best people to ask about this would be the park itself, but I think it is entirely possible. I know they have relaxed their policy on facial hair and visible tattoos recently.
  4. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    I was just happy when they replaced the bulb in the bowl of hot oil. With a flickering one no less! If they just turned up the speakers so I could hear "now you will pay!" from the back of the train, it might just kill me
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Or the brightly colored bench seats that have been stacked there at MT's turnaround, in the KI&MVRR's "third station," since about halfway through last summer. I mean, I'm all for speculation. I'm even for thinking just about anything in the park might be a further clue, once it is clear something new is coming. But absent the things the park would definitely be doing (teasing with signs and social media posts) if something major was coming, there's just really no point to look at things that appear to be regular park maintenance and suggest they could be something else.
  6. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Oh, you mean the ash trees down by The Beast MCBR that have been laying there since last spring? Try harder. Next you'll be on about the skids there with wood that is clearly meant for repairs on Beast itself.
  7. The Giga Speculation Thread

    There's a park near home where I like to go walk and play Pokémon Go. Last visit, we went for a hike through the woods, and saw that a fair number of trees had been cut down to be removed. I can safely say that park isn't getting a roller coaster next year either. As long as there are no actual signs (like the ones on the fence in Rivertown when the park opened in 2016) I'm finding it extremely hard to see any of these things that happen every year (replacing or installing things like sewage or drainage pipes, cutting down trees, cleaning up an area where something has been removed) as being "signs" of anything other than typical park maintenance. Edit: the Giga crane games have been in the park since at least 2016. It wasn't a sign about the construction that eventually led to Mystic Timbers, nor is it a sign now.

    For those like me who love the Wizard of Oz coin pushers, they've added a handful of similar Willy Wonka coin pushers to the Coney Arcade.
  9. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I truly think that if a new coaster was coming in 2019, especially a Giga, they would not avoid the chance to start whetting our appetites. The "watch for falling trees" signs were on the new fence in Rivertown when it first appeared in 2016. The lack of foreshadowing is forcing me to push my hopes to 2020.
  10. 2018 Entertainment

    I miss the roaming entertainment. They tried to bring it back with the KI Five, which I loved but was no more last year. And welcome to KIC, @super7!! I didn't notice you were new when you posted the other day.
  11. The Racer on Opening Day 2018

    Last year, I would have to say that Red was rougher overall, but Blue had one spot (the dip before the last hill before the turnaround) that was excruciating. Even on a non-wheel seat, it smacked me hard in the back there. I'm curious to see whether that improved. I'm betting it has, because Red definitely felt smoother.
  12. How many amusement parks (and theme parks) have you visited?

    Kings Island, Cedar Point, Americana, Fantasy Farm (probably at least once although I was too young to remember), Coney Island Cincy, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Six Flags Great America (I guess, whichever is near Chicago), Disney World (Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, Epcot), Disneyland, Dollywood. So twelve. And ones that probably don't count as parks precisely: Stratosphere in Las Vegas, and Forest Fair mall in its prime.
  13. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    We were in the Festhaus for sound check for one of the live bands, River City. What I heard of them was very good. Probably should have stuck around. That Jump! sign is definitely for this year, because last year was a different dog show. I much preferred Jump! so I'm glad to see it's coming back. Don Helbig said info about the new cirque show will be added to the site in the next week or so, and I bet the signs for it will go up by early May at the latest.
  14. Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    Only two meals in a day, four hours or more apart, on the season-long dining plan.
  15. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    It's really a relatively minor thing, but I liked it. They have a new hand stamp for re-entry
