  1. Drop Tower does not like tall people. If you're somehow able to fit in, it'll hurt like hell. B&M's should work fine, as well as Mystic. Racer and Beast will be iffy but if you do fit in it may be painful. In previous years, ride operators were allowed to exert a great deal of force to get restraints to lock. In 2020, operations cut down on that and now operators can only use minimal effort to fit guests in. I wouldn't worry too much. Even if you can't fit in a ride, no one judges or cares. Most guests aren't even paying attention. Ride operators are used to it as it happens all of the time. Especially on crews that operate tighter rides. Kings Island has a lot to offer for tall guys so either way you'll have a good time!
  2. I’ve talked to those who are first years and those who have worked for multiple. It appears to be the same across the board, unless there’s a department I’m missing. I’m 99% sure they’re mistaken though, as they park made it pretty clear that everyone would be making at least $15/hour with no strings attached.
  3. This is some truth to this, but the minimum wage, without strings attached, in all departments is $15/hour. However, in security aquatics, and foods you can make $18/hour. Those in other departments are eligible for an additional $3/hour that is paid out in a lump sum if you stay until the season is over. This is to keep turnover low and retention rates high. One issue raised though is that hours are not what they used to be in past years, which can cancel out the increase in money being made by employees.
  4. @DonHelbig if you could get this on your name tag that would be amazing
  5. As others have said, I don't believe Timberwolf is taking up "Valuable Space". According to public records from the auditor, KI is only using about 50% of the land they own. I also wouldn't be a fan of them putting any sort of ride in that space considering its proximity to the parking lot. (See Scream at Magic Mountain)
  6. I suspect the rise in wages has been in the works for some time, considering all of the talk about a $15 minimum wage. I don't think it was supposed to happen this early, but their hands were tied here. In some departments, the difference in supervisor's wages from new associates is disproportionate from what it was before.

  23. A side note: here are some statistics from the links to the documents! The top referrers to the link are KI Central (Obviously) and Facebook. I'm not sure where the link is posted there. Most of the views are coming from the US, but people from Canada and Germany have also clicked on the link! All in all about 1000 people have viewed the blueprints thus far. As a favor, I'd appreciate it if people shared the blueprints using the bit.ly links. This way we can see how popular the documents are and track where they've been coming from. It makes for some interesting results, and makes sure that I receive credit for getting these!

  25. Posted this on the other topic but I thought it should be shared here as well for folks who wanted updates! I was able to get some pictures from CSF to share with y’all. Hershey Track has been loaded on trailers and is ready to leave, I assume they’re running out of space at this point. There are massive amounts of track sitting farther back on the property that are mostly out of view. The front looks mostly the same.
