  1. I hope the antenna comes back as well, and hope they plant more trees for shade.
  2. More info being released on what happened. Not good for the park at all. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/2021/07/09/adventureland-park-fatal-accident-2021-raging-river-ride-11-year-old-drowned-michael-jaramillo-david/7912842002/
  3. I can see the park starting to post more boards for rules around the park, 'You can't do this, this or this, doing any of the things listed, you will be removed from the park, up to and including being banned, plus if needed arrested'. Sad that it has to come to this, but to make sure everyone knows this type of stuff will not be tolerated.
  4. Morning everyone! Orion is looking great this morning From: Kings Island livestream video.
  5. The book came today, been reading it for awhile at page 63, enjoying it a lot. Learning some new stuff about KI, great book!!
  6. Just got my email yesterday saying the book was shipped, can't wait! I wonder how does this compare to other amusement and theme park books out there, like the one's for Carowinds and Kings Dominions? I listened to the podcast about the book and Evan said CP has one that ends in the 60's, is that the only one for CP?
  7. Just ordered my copy, I hope more copies are ready soon, can't wait to get it!
  8. That is good news! Also I saw The Racer is running! We're getting closer to opening day!
  9. You can now go to the WDRB News site on their Facebook page and there is a announcement getting ready right now. Link: WDRB News | Facebook
  10. This is good news for KI, congratulations to KI and Small Brothers, LLC and Terra Firma Associates, this looks wonderful! I wonder how long CF is going to let the old Kings Island Inn property sit there and be empty? I'm sure they could buy it, to make some more revenue for the park, or go into a deal with someone like this project.
  11. This looks amazing! I was hoping for lights on the 2nd hill, and they went way beyond even that! Great job KI and everyone involved!
  12. Do you or @Shaggy know when the bottom of the fountain was switched to light blue? The park had so much charm back then!
  13. Fantastic photos, great pics of the Royal Fountain in its glory days pre-2019. Wish we still had a Ferris Wheel as well.
  14. Diamondback is currently testing, I hope they fill the splashdown soon, we're 20 days into the countdown.
  15. Here is the link to the site. https://www.wkyc.com/article/entertainment/places/cedar-point/cedar-point-reopening-2020-season/95-fa6c3e4f-2716-405f-a707-b59a87f2baa1?fbclid=IwAR3fDbpsC5VB-R30hWy6F-zjlX9g3hcEFMjzAMAaaSRn9fDck28ONbKVoPM A new park update has just been posted, link to that also. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/park-update
  16. He just announced 2 weeks from today, amusement parks will be allowed to open! June 19th.
  17. It does sound like good news. He said, in a moment we’ll find out.
  18. Mystic Timbers is now testing! Woo hoo! https://www.visitkingsisland.com/explore/live-video
  19. That looks like Orion not Fury 325.
  20. Thank you for doing this KIghostguy, and everyone who has helped. I can’t wait!
  21. Things need to start opening back up again, a lot of small businesses only have a few more weeks of money left or they will be closed for good. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/03/treasury-makes-ppp-loan-terms-more-unfavorable-for-small-businesses.html
  22. Looks like the US Capitol Building and White House are on lockdown now. http://revolutionradio.org/2020/03/12/capitol-building-congressional-offices-go-into-lockdown-after-senate-staffer-tests-positive/ https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2020-03-12/capitol-white-house-closed-to-public-due-to-coronavirus
  23. Do you think we will see some new light bulbs, on the Grand Carousel also? It would look really nice since some of them are burnt out.
  24. That might be the wire with the lights messed up. Maybe that is why it’s still up, so they can fix it. Just guessing.
