  1. Ideas for the Crypt building?

    ^ the train and WWC are both Rivertown flats
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  6. 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.

    ^ May 18 and 19 are a Friday and Saturday, not a Saturday and Sunday.
  8. Coasterstock 2018

    Get yer tickets! https://www.visitkingsisland.com/play/events/coasterstock Ticket sales end a week earlier this year, on May 6, so don't put it off until last minute! There is also an option this year, for $10, to have all your swag mailed to you prior to the event and skip check-in.
  9. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Seats, not trains. Not announced, a leaked photo from (I believe they are saying) someone in maintenance's instagram. I hope said employee didn't lose their job over it. But if you wanna know more read back in the thread, it would make more sense than repeating all of it over.
  10. What ride did KI make the biggest mistake in getting ride of

    I don't think the antique cars were prohibitively expensive. But I am sure the Eagles were much more fuel efficient in cost per rider/ride. Which is why I am making the argument removing Eagles was a /bigger/ mistake just from a monetary standpoint. Just one way of looking at it. This is why I usually don't bother ranking things tho no one way of looking at it will be the be-all end-all reality.
  11. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Well, considering the older seats weren't painted to get their color, they were molded in orange (the black showing as they aged wasn't the underside showing: as the top surface got rough from wear and I believe sun damage, it drew dirt and possibly mold which looked black), if the photo of the new seats is accurate, then it is safe to assume that is the color they will continue to be.
  12. What ride did KI make the biggest mistake in getting ride of

    I think the Eagles were a bigger mistake, just from a cost/benefit point of view. The 'tiques required a lot more ride ops per rider, not to mention the cost of fuel to operate.
  13. What rides should I take my glasses off for?

    Welcome to KIC! Your cousin is pretty rare, in my experience. It seems most people I've known (including myself) who say they're blind without their glasses are nearsighted. But reading glasses are for farsightedness so they wouldn't help. They also tend to be pretty low strength, for severe farsightedness you'd need custom prescription glasses. I just wear contacts when I'm out. I hated glasses so much (especially when doing things like going to amusement parks in the summer and sweating, going from hot to cold inside an AC'd building, etc) I got contacts as soon as my mom let me when I was thirteen. I dislike them so much still, I almost never will wear sunglasses even though I have a fair degree of light sensitivity due to severe myopia.
  14. What could 2018 bring KI

    I've given him a bit of a hard time before, for "removing the wraps from dining" (a decision I don't think was even his) but I hope Chef Nate isn't leaving. I feel like a lot of positive changes have been made the past few years with him as the head chef. But really, the thing that impresses me most is how active he tends to be in the day-to-day operations of all the different food service locations, pitching in when needed. On many days at the beginning and ending of seasons, I've seen him in the kitchens helping with the cooking grunt work. On a handful of occasions throughout the season he's dropped into a location when I was there (just to check in that things are going well, from what I can tell) and personally assembled my order and others as long as he's there.
  15. What could 2018 bring KI

    He did say there would be a later announcement. He did not say when. However that tweet was about something CP in particular said in their own Snapchat, so I would take it with a grain of salt to assume that KI or other parks are going to also do something soon. I hope I'm wrong tho, because I'm excitedly anticipating officially hearing what is coming to KI next year, too.
