  1. What ride did KI make the biggest mistake in getting ride of

    I never been on them but I'd have to say The Flying Eagles as well, I walked pass them in 2001, but didn't realize how great a ride it was till years later, and they was taken out. Would have been nice if they was brought back home to KI, and North Carolina was given the new Scooters... The ride that I have been on that I miss the most is the Antique Cars/Les Taxis, never thought they'd ever remove that classic ride. Second would be the Smurf ride, it was a great dark family boat ride!
  2. Things that KI can improve on

    Its not like they aren't updating things, for 2016 they built a whole new parking entrance. Repainted The Vortex sign for its 30th anniversary, added new theming and a new sign for The Beast, and added a new themed roller coaster Mystic Timbers in 2017, and didn't they repaint The Racer entrance sign a few years ago? And this isn't everything, they have worked on this season. The park is a lot bigger today then compared to the 1970's and 1980's.
  3. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Hope this off year they are doing this. The food improvement part could be coming for 2018, with a new restaurant in Coney Mall, that hasn't been announced yet. I'm guessing it'll be an announcement of it on their website, sometime before the Spring opening day.
  4. The Giga Speculation Thread

    ^Agreed, that stuff does need work. Lights near the Grand Carousel also need fixed.
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I'm wondering, what parts of the park that you consider are being neglected?
  6. Ideas for Future Winterfest Events

    Add some garland and ornaments to the first level of the Eiffel Tower, kind of like how they did with Haunt this year. And if they could, have one side of The Racer running.

  11. "Fort Washington" House?

    ^^^I thought it had some inaccuracies, good to know!
  12. "Fort Washington" House?

    Bump! After doing a search for the "Fort Washington House" (couldn't find any), I didn't know that the ghost of Missouri Jane also haunts the International Restaurant, and employee's hear banging of pots and pans!! Has anyone while working or visiting the park ever had anything strange happen to them? Nothing has ever happened to me while there. https://www.wattpad.com/125436737-missouri-jane-the-ghost-of-kings-island-missouri Here's a YouTube video of the haunted Kings Island stories, from WellHeyProductions!
  13. Coasters for Winterfest future

    I think from what people have said, WinterFest is just right the way it is, I'd love The Racer to be open though, that would be icing on the cake!. I wonder if they'll add more lights next year? California's Great America now boasts 7 million lights, if Kings Island added 2 million more it would be an even bigger light show! Does anyone know if CGA started out with 5 million and added 2 million for this year?

    Makes me so happy to hear all the good responses to Kings Island's WinterFest! Who would have thought it would be compared to a Disney park, and Dollywood's event? I am excited for the future of the park, to see what they have in store for everyone!
