  1. It seems like it just gets worse for Six Flags, the more people look into what is happening in the company. Screamscape now saying that the park Presidents of St. Louis and Great Adventure are confirmed to be retiring here soon.
  2. Sad to see nothing in terms of rides being added for next year, that will make it 3 years (the longest ever I think someone posted) nothing is added, hopefully the park brings some of the small things back we’ve asked about here lately next year, and some new paint for Diamondback.
  3. This is a wonderful idea! I really hope the park takes your idea and goes with it! Does anyone remember what the KillMart building use to be, before it became that?
  4. If they would take a year off of adding rides and just planted more tree's that would be fine with me, the park needs more shade/greenery. California's Great America has a nice Ivy tunnel that would look really nice at Kings Island, when they start taking things out at CGA. A nice spot would be in between BLSC and Diamondback, along with the tree's already there, it would be a nice place to cool down, as you walk through, and would be very picturesque.
  5. I was on the Facebook KI season pass page, and read that they are no longer taking guests up to the top level of the Eiffel Tower, due to that elevator being more bouncy. Is that true? I noticed when I was there the other day, we didn’t visit the top level, but thought nothing of it, since that is normal. I hope they will still take guests to the top sometimes.
  6. Congratulations to Don and KI! They are always fun to read! On to 2,000!
  7. Just got back from the park, what a great day! The fireworks were amazing, there is no substitute for being in person. First ride of the day was on Orion and it was great, then did The Beast, I like it even more now than I did before! Probably bought the most things I ever did, they just have so much now that I like it is hard to choose what to get. I like the Orion stuff the best, so that and the 50th anniversary stuff was the main things I got. I saw the Street Party and it was great too, everyone was having a blast! Awesome job KI!
  8. Same here, I’d like to see it in that spot again. Do you think there’s enough room for it though with Woodstock Whirlybirds so close? They might have to take it out, if they did, maybe we could see KI taking a ride from CGA Planet Snoopy, to help fill in its place. It would be nice to see Peanuts Pirates be added to our Planet Snoopy, this would give Kings Island the most rides again for a kids area, adding the Skyride and the Peanuts Pirates breakdance ride. This may help KI retake the Best Kids Area at the GTA, from Dollywood if Kings Island is interested in doing that.
  9. “Through the July 4th holiday weekend, we have continued to generate new highs for in-park per capita spending, as well as drive growth in our out-of-park revenue channels, most notably through our resort properties,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Richard A. Zimmerman. Looks like things are going very well, and probably will have a record year this year. I can’t to visit the park in July, I will definitely be buying some 50th anniversary items! https://www.cedarfair.com/blog/2022/cedar-fair-reports-record-revenues-through-the-july-4th-weekend https://www.cedarfair.com/blog/2022/cedar-fair-to-announce-2022-second-quarter-results-on-august-3rd-earnings-call-starts-at-10-am-edt
  10. I am too! That would be a dream come true! If we get anything else, I’d like to see the Bayern Kurve, that would be icing on the cake, but I doubt it, since other parks in the chain might be asking for it as well.
  11. Hopefully Mike/Kings Island can move quick and ask for the Skyride, so we could have one again. Would love to see that brought back.
  12. My guess is they probably will relocate some of them, that’s what happened with Geauga Lake.
  13. I just read this, just came out a few minutes ago! Cedar Fair to close California’s Great America in up to 11 years! What is everyone’s thoughts? This is very unexpected. https://markets.financialcontent.com/stocks/article/bizwire-2022-6-27-cedar-fair-capitalizes-on-opportunity-to-sell-its-land-at-californias-great-america-amusement-park#:~:text=Cedar Fair%2C L.P.

  14. Maybe if they added some things from Soak City to it, it would entice more people to buy it.
  15. Yes, it has a balcony, or rather the room next to the IR has a balcony. I remember one time walking around IS and looking up, seeing Don on the balcony taking pictures a few years ago. Btw the show is great, good job KI and the company doing it!
  16. I don’t think it will be in 2023, Cedar Point hasn’t had their new coaster yet, I think they will receive one first. Either Planet Snoopy and Soak City is next up I feel.
  17. I doubt Shaggy was trolling, he's known for what he's talking about with KI. I think we will see something new here in 2024. These last few years for KI have really been something!
  18. Hopefully they add some flowers around the tower, that would help hide the wires, and look great!
  19. I hope it doesn’t get removed, I was planning on riding it this year, for the first time. Hopefully they’re just moving it, this does seem out of the blue, so maybe they’re going to do something here? We’ll see in a few months I guess.
  20. Hopefully charges are not dropped, and banned from the park for the maximum time. Since these troublemakers are hanging around in groups outside the park, the next step should be some management needs to be outside, and determine if they should be kicked off the property, if they think the group is just hanging around to cause trouble. These people doing this need to know, the park will not put up with none of their misbehavior, or taunts to security.
  21. And if something does happen in the park, they are on it (not stuff like line jumping) very quick! This happened in the parking lot, maybe they thought they could get away with fighting outside the park, but security was on it fast! Anyone caught starting fights needs to have the maximum penalty!
