  1. I voted for Backlot Stunt Coaster, but it would be nice to see Adventure Express run for WinterFest too. I could go with either one.
  2. That might work, I think they have to put some Christmas lights along the trail, for something for people to enjoy along the way, so it's just not a carriage ride in the dark woods.
  3. Enjoying the pictures and reviews, I hope they bring the carriage rides back for next year's WinterFest. I was planning to do that this year but looks to be cut.
  4. Very cool. Hopefully soon they turn the cameras around, so they’re not upside down. Nice to see they’re clean too.
  5. Good news! KI really takes care of their wood coasters! I wonder if they're going to do some more work on The Beast.
  6. Here is a new update for Coney Mall in an expansion for 2027/2028 that I created, pieced together some good ideas from this site. 1. In lime a new Skyride. 2. In light blue, SR&R is moved down farther closer to WindSeeker. 3. In green a Ferris Wheel/another flat ride is added here or a stand to sell things, since the stand is gone at the entrance at Coney Mall it could be moved here. 4. The white part is where the path will be extended. 5. In orange, a new restaurant, Coney Cafe is put here where KillMart is now. Seating outside behind it to watch The Racer and Orion would be nice, and seating inside. 6. In yellow is where the new KillMart building will go.
  7. I don't think Woodstock Gliders, The Racer's lift or Diamondback would be in the way, but maybe I'm wrong. Looking at CGA's Skyride path, Patriot is very close to it along with some tree's it goes over, and it's not a problem for the Skyride they have.
  8. I think they will continue to keep adding things to the park in 2024, 2025 to keep the momentum up, since 2021 and 2022 we saw no rides being added. All of Cedar Fair's top 5 parks are getting something next year, and they will want to keep pushing to get the parks attendances back up to 2019, and last month already was above 2019 levels, and to keep making new records for the company.
  9. Nice to see attendance increased by 14% compared to 2021. Still working to catch up to 2019 numbers, but they will get there I’m sure, with everything they’re doing.
  10. Next years schedule looks to be live now on the Kings Island site. Opening day is April 15th 2023, 10 am - 10 pm.

    Yeah, that's kind of nuts. Don't forget the option, you can do $490.15 for 24 months
  12. Since the old path of the Skyride is now closed to us with Sllngshot area being used for the 2023 additions, these are the area's I think we could see the Skyride return too, if it does, I hope. 1. Green from Planet Snoopy to Coney Mall, my 1st choice. This would look the best and be great for pictures looking from the front of the park. 2. Blue in Coney Mall, my 2nd choice. 3. White in Action Zone to Area 72. 4. Yellow from Planet Snoopy to Soak City.
  13. That is scary for sure. Sending prayers for those effected.
  14. It looks like the flags will be high enough so the floats can go underneath them. Nice to see they’re getting some pavers there. I bet we will see construction work starting soon in this area.
  15. Here is the new entrance to Adventure Express, I wonder why they depict guests going in 2 separate ways.
  16. Very neat, I was hoping for the Skyride to come back but this is nice, we have some new flat rides!
  17. I just saw a post on the Kings Island Seasonal Passholders Facebook page, with a picture showing KI hiring for year-round restaurant talent! Take that for what you will.
  18. Seems like a nice family Halloween event. Maybe they could add a Tricks & Treat Parade someday to the event, keep it in Planet Snoopy, but not have it as big as Grande Carnivale, or the 50th anniversary celebration, just have a few floats, have 1 stop and dance for some nice entertainment. It would add something else to do, and families would love it.
  19. I bet KI is thinking about doing this too, maybe they will wait and see how KD and CR do, I hope not though, and we are part of it.
  20. A blast from the past, for those who would like to read through the posts. It was a beautiful ride. Nice to see Hersheypark and Six Flags Great America still has theirs.
  21. I hope they bring back Kenton's Cove Keelboat Canal in some form, that Paramount unfortunately took out, we would be up above near the trees again, and the drop was nice too! This would help bring some Rivertown aspect back to the area, and not take over the old Vortex land, that is Coney Mall. Here's a layout of the new adult Log Flume. Orange entrance, yellow the ride, and blue water. Kenton’s Cove Keelboat Canal (KICentral.com)
  22. I think B&M’s new Surf Coaster would be great for Action Zone, it would give KI something different from CP’s lineup. If a new coaster is indeed coming for Action Zone then The Vortex land is going to still be empty for awhile, so Coney Mall will be next in line, since Area 72 is its own area now. Can’t wait to see what happens.
  23. I can see them trying to open at 3 to see how it goes, hopefully they see these posts! What time is the tree lighting ceremony again?
  24. I saw them make a post about this last night before I went to work on their Instagram page, glad to see they're coming up with new things for Halloween Haunt on International Street after the summer is over.
  25. Congratulations to KI, they’ve done a wonderful job this year. Hope to see many more things return in the future to keep bringing the charm back.
