    Winterfest 2018 Discussion Thread

    Up until Wed we loved the reds buffet. Something was really off that night. The green beans were awful, my husband said something to an employee and their response was they had a different crew. And yes, no dessert, I asked and they just shrugged their shoulders. But when we were leaving the park we were in the trim a tree shop and they had the cookies for sale at the cash register, I couldn't believe it. We stopped at guest services just to let them know we were disappointed and we were told they didn't expect the crowds, that was not an answer as we were the second people in the restaurant. I was looking forward to having it NYE but now I'm not so sure.

    Ended up being crazy busy but we had a great time. I told my husband just watch it will clear out around 8-830 and it did, we had the best time rvere! We did reds buffet again and it was awesome. I don't know where they get those cookies from but I'm absolutely hooked on them. Can't wait to be back up on Friday.

    Winterfest 2018 Discussion Thread

    We absolutely loved the buffet. I was really talking it up on Facebook and I guess I was in the minority, must people were saying it's not worth it, they ran out of everything, food was cold, and for us it was completely opposite, we went early which I think is what we will do anytime we go because it was fantastic for us, I'm so glad there are some new options and that they finally did something for dining plan guests.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    That's so weird, last night they were using the bigger bowls, I hate the inconsistency. They had a new person on the line yesterday and they were out of so many items, she had no clue sadly, I felt bad for her.

    How is the Haunt conducted at KI?

    I'm glad someone else feels the same I do, there's no place for alcohol at Haunt, just an accident waiting to happen.

    Shooting Flames on I-Street for Haunt

    It wouldn't be haunt without the flames. I'm sorry, my opinion, if you don't like it then sit somewhere else, it adds to the spookiness of the park.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I'm so glad you mentioned the coleslaw, I didn't eat mine yesterday as it tasted like it was about to go sour, I wasn't sure and didn't want to take a chance. My husband has always loved this place, I have been on the fence about it, sometimes good, sometimes not. Now if they had smoked turkey all the time I would be in heaven.

    Early Haunt 2018 Reviews

    Last year was my first Haunt. In 2015 I did Halloweekends at CP and enjoyed it. So my comments are comparing last year to this year. Last year my husband and both absolutely loved haunt and went on and on about it and quite honestly this past Friday we were disappointed. I know some of it had to do with the weather. Last year I loved the show they had prior to opening the park and how the monsters were released, this year there was nothing. We did cavern first and I like that it was dark and giving the flash lights. Planet Snoopy having nothing just seemed odd. Loved pumpkin eaters, best addition they had. As always loved slaughter house. Urgent scare was eh, no one really trying to scare. Loved field of screams and kill Mart was ok just not many scares. Now chaos on the other hand I thought was awful, hardly any actors in there and they weren't even trying. Coney maul has potential but I saw no clowns really trying to scare and basically saw them standing around talking. Makeup seemed really good this year. Hardly any scare actors walking around in other places. We didn't do would pack or blackout. Just the overall vibe wasn't there this year and our multiple attempts to eat that night were all not good. I'm not giving up, I love KI and hope in weeks to come it will get better.

    I'm so glad to hear that, we ate one our way and BBQ beef sandwich sounds yummy right now.

    Haunt Expectations

    I wondered about the rain too. I guess the Mac and cheese bar never opened yesterday, somehow that doesn't make sense to me, should they have not been prepared since they announced that would be an option?

    Haunt Expectations

    Yes, I was really disappointed, last year that was the really cool thing as you couldn't seen, so the scare zones were better. I've never been to opening day but it really seemed to lack something. Last year they had the little skit and then the monsters came out, nothing this year. I loved pumpkin eaters, but it wasn't scary. Coney maul I was extremely disappointed in, I saw characters just standing around talking to each other. A gal at kill Mart yelled at my husband because I was having a hard time walking and was trying to get thru, I'm sorry unless you are doing something blatantly out of line, there's no reason to yell at a guest ever. Chaos was not impressive at all, hardly any actors in it. We also had a horrible time w food last night, went to red and my burger was beyond charred, so I hardly ate. Later tried to go to Mac and cheese bar, it was only 1030 and they had already closed it. I'm not going to judge the entire season from last night but as of right now I'm just like eh, it was ok. I know some people said last year wasn't good but just from my impressions last night, last year was much better.
  14. I would go to GateKeeper and Valrayvn for sure, they accommodate larger people. We went a few years ago when a friend and she could not fit on Millenium Force, Dragster, and Wicked Twister. She got so mad we had to leave the park so I dont know about any of the others. I husband is 6'2" and about 245, only thing he didn't fit on this year was wicked twister. Every person is different, I would try the test seats and if need be ask a ride ops.

    Haunt Expectations

    And yes I disagree, just like I disagree with Fast Lane, but that's my opinion and if you struggle day after day you might think differently. My situation will never change because I'm disabled due to an idiot on his cell phone hitting me. So yeah maybe if I had money I would think differently. My season pass is literally the only money spent on entertainment. I have been to Busch Gardens Tampa Howl O Scream 3 years ago (and no I didn't pay, my friend did) and quite honestly theirs was right in line with KI. The park I had the greatest expectations for was CP and theirs is no comparison to KI.

    Haunt Expectations

    I also love that it's a combination of mazes and rides. Some of the best rides are during haunt due obviously to the darkness. I'm happy that I have a season pass and can go every night of haunt if I wanted to. The houses are ok, not really that scary except maybe blackout but they are still fun. I really love all the fog the park uses, just really goes so well with the entire atmosphere.

    Haunt Expectations

    I'm sorry but I really disagree, I absolutely love Haunt and was blown away last year. I had thought Halloweekends at CP would surpass KI, but I feel ki blows them away. I personally am glad they took the skeleton key rooms out. We have a very limited budget and never could afford fright lane and seeing people get to see different things than I could just because they have more money just really bothered me. I know I'm the minority on this topic but it always just made me feel like I was missing out.

    Plus size riders, what can I ride?

    Hopefully someone else can chime in, I'm not really sure. I can say that KI ride ops really try everything &) get you in the seats, if you were going to Cedar Point, theirs are more restrictive. A lot honestly depends on how your weight is distributed. There will either be a test seat or if there isn't you can go up the exit and ask a ride ops to see if you can fit without having to wait in line and being turned away.

    Plus size riders, what can I ride?

    As others have said, it really depends on the individual body. My husband is 6'2" and 245, he has at times had trouble on Drop Tower and fof is tight due more to his height than weight. Banshee in row 4 is for bigger people and that would probably be the one I would try.

    Gravity - Kings Island Theater 2018

    That was the final show, I forgot all about that, they did so many small/funny changes, it's was really entertaining. Edit: Something I thought was pretty cool, during the bike act Phil was video taping them with his phone.

    Gravity - Kings Island Theater 2018

    The entire show was just different and the energy was astounding. At the beginning where Phil says about how many likes he's going to get on spacebook, instead he said oh you already know the joke. When they took selfies they were using what I assumed was his personal phone and turned around to include the audience in the photo. Keith acted super crazy when they were closing the spaceship. Phil threw a severed body part from haunt at the green alien. In the dark robot scene Phil ran at the end and the robots chased him The scene where Keith and James are tied up, Keith was in a tiny box cage and James was on the outside on top of it. Phil said the line about oh you're French. And he also said he knew what she wanted, the glass ball. Phil kissed the alien at the end and she went back in the spaceship with them. There was a bunch more I can't remember off the top of my head but maybe someone else will. I went on Haut Vol's Facebook page and there's quite an interesting line about the last show... Thank you very much for a beautiful season, see you next year for another summer of trips to Planet 6328! Does this mean what I think it means???

    2019 Season Passes

    There's absolutely no difference in what park you get platinum at except if it's new you have to go to that park to process and any perks would have to be used at said park. My first year we had platinum at CP and next year we went w KI instead as it's closer.

    Meal Deals, and meal deals

    Now honestly I would be much happier with that, I could still get my egg roll and 1 entree, I don't like any of those combos.
