  1. Ideas for the Crypt building?

    While I agree that most of those buildings are quite an eye-sore outside of Haunt time, I think it would be better for them to re-purpose those buildings for something during the off-Haunt season or at least put up some theme'd decorations on the buildings to fit the areas that they are in so that they blend in. Unless Cedar Fair has something planned to replace the area those buildings exist then it's cheaper for them to just keep them up.
  2. What could 2018 bring KI

    Do you have to sign a waiver before you watch it?
  3. Cedar Point Opening day

    Found a few threads that may help ya
  4. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Just because you said it's unlikely doesn't mean we can't give feedback . Honestly I don't see Coney Mall as a strong area for a giga coaster, I'd say Action Zone or X-Base would probably be best.
  5. What could 2018 bring KI

    I would definitely be on-board with a steeplechase coaster and I agree the theme of it would fit much better to that area of the park.
  6. Will Coney Mall be Overhauled?

    Backwards Racer was one of my favorite rides, we would ride that all the time when I was a kid. I think the reasoning for going front facing was a pretty bad reason and there had to of been more to it than that which we'll probably never know (those who don't know do talk, those who do know don't talk or something like that).
  7. What could 2018 bring KI

    Only tear BLSC down if they put something in that's better and worth the loss of BLSC, the ride is a solid fun ride with the coveted 48" mark (was my daughter's favorite ride at 48" when she got there a few years ago). I understand people's displeasure with it due to the fact it got rid of the antique cars, but the ride is fun, isn't uncomfortable, and one of the few rides with some halfway decent theming in it, even if that theming has diminished over time due to the loss of the Italian Job theme. I'd argue the theme of BLSC is fourth best of the roller coasters at Kings Island behind Flight of Fear (more the queue than the ride), Banshee, & Mystic Timbers (yes, better than Adventure Express).

    I don't think there was ever very much in the way of any type of communication stating that antique cars would happen, more that most of us just really want them to be back. It was nice of Kings Island to tease us at Winterfest having them driving the antique cars around though...

    I agree that I'm happy to see Como Cruisers leave, although I do hope they put something better in to replace it even if it can't be bumper boats which is a bummer because those were a lot of fun.
  10. What could 2018 bring KI

    If it's just a smokehouse I would expect it'll probably just be announced via Tweet or a blog on their website, nothing formal, and probably after Winterfest is over (not that that isn't obvious with only one day left).
  11. Official: WinterFest 2017

    I'd be interested to see if Kings Island considers a daily schedule all through December next year. Festival of Lights already does it and doesn't struggle to meet attendance needs. I think one of the struggles would be getting some of their shows to go daily as they don't even do that with the shows they have through the summer so they would need a day or two of rest for the entertainers. I don't think they would have the same reasons they have during the spring and fall of why they don't open during the weekdays (majority of the workforce being high school students) as from what I have observed is most of the employees at Winterfest have been above high school age.
  12. Ideas for Future Winterfest Events

    How about doing a New Year's countdown event with fireworks at midnight or maybe do it at 10 instead for the kids like the zoo does? I mean, it's not like Kings Island doesn't know how to do fireworks...
  13. Does Snoopy have a meet n greet during winterfest?

    Snoopy is out quite a bit during Winterfest in Planet Snoopy, although I am not aware what the times are for official meet and greets, my assumption is they probably have one immediately following at least one of the shows they have in Planet Snoopy.
  14. Official: WinterFest 2017

    I think it would be cool if they opened up the pathway from the end of Coney Mall to Rivertown as I think that would be a good area to put some lights up and walk through. Plus it would give them the opportunity to open up Shake Rattle & Roll, oh and of course 3 Point Challenge so we can have basketballs!
  15. Expand X-Base?

    Only issue with that is you would need to have some type of reason for it to tie back to Guardians of Galaxy other than assuming that everyone going through X-Base has watched the movie. I don't see Cedar Fair buying the rights to have anything displayed that references Guardians of Galaxy, there's a certain other park that recently made a pretty big investment in an attraction based around that movie.
