  1. 2019 season was excellent. Mystic Timbers continues to impress me. It's so much fun. I had my first Soak City visit this year. I really enjoyed it. The wave pools and the lazy river are great. The dining plan turned out to be a great deal for us and I've really liked the food. I got some great tee shirts at the gift shops. The baby care center is awesome, it makes being at the park with a toddler way easier. I did not get to Winterfest as often as I'd have liked this year- only once. That was basically the only downside to this season.
  2. Anyone know how busy the park is today? Does it tend to clear out a bit more in the evening? I haven't been paying attention the last few times we went.
  3. Got the dining plan and visited Sunday. I have no complaints except the line at Hank's was insanely long. The food itself was really great!
  4. My year was short at KI cause I got my season pass late in the year, but I did get to visit the park at least 5 times. Mystic Timbers is fantastic. Haunt was pretty cool even thought I didn't do the mazes this year. I loved riding The Monster with my son several times and he had a ball. Winterfest is probably my favorite thing EVER and the lights were out of this world! The food was all excellent, particularly the funnel cakes, the hot chocolate, and Rivertown Potato Works. Service everywhere was great!
  5. There's an actual weight limit posted at the gliders. Unless they just plan to turn adults away, I don't know how they plan to enforce this.
  6. Brr! Anyone else in the park today? Loving this cold weather! Short lines, no standing around in the heat! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I'm just sad they took out a water ride. It's Florida! More important than ever to have a good mix of water rides. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The last time I looked only platinum and regular passes were showing up, but tonight I looked and saw the gold passes. Not sure if I just suck at internetting lately or what! Gonna talk with my husband and see what he thinks. It seems like when you buy a 2019 pass now you get the rest of 2018 included which would be a fantastic deal! Thanks for letting me know! Otherwise I wouldn't have checked again and missed out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ooh, I hope I get the bats next. Bats are awesome. Also it looks like a season pass is not in the cards this year. I guess it's past the deadline for gold passes and we can't quite justify the platinum pass cost with how little time there is left in the season. We are definitely going to be back once or twice this fall though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Also- after reading other trip reports apparently there are multiple endings on Mystic Timbers. We got the scary tree monster ending. Josh and I have been obsessed with playing a video game called Don't Starve Together lately. I joked that they cut down too many trees and spawned a tree guardian. If only you'd planted those pinecones! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So on Sunday we came to Kings Island because my mother in law's work was having their company day with discounted tickets. My husband's whole family came and it was a really good time. Sean wasn't quite up to the 36 inch mark but it probably won't be much longer. Next season for sure. We took him on Woodstock's Whirlybirds first. The line didn't LOOK that long but boy did it take forever. He really enjoyed it though, he was fascinated looking at the sights. He cried a bit when it was time to get off and go. We tried to take him on Boo Blasters but it was closed temporarily. Later he got to
  12. Does BGW have its own version of Falcons Fury yet? It could be that. Or maybe a giga. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Cedar Fair buying the Busch Parks would scare me. I don't want them getting rid of the animals in Tampa. I like competition. But Cedar Fair really would be smart to buy a park they can operate year round. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I find it super weird that my kid is going to grow up never having gone to the circus. Then again, if it were still around, I dunno if I'd even think to go. Amusement parks, zoos, and nature/state parks are way higher on my radar than shows. I went once as a kid and it was really cool. I hope everyone working with the circus will find new jobs. I feel awful for them, it must be hard to find a new job when you've done something so specialized. I hope the animals get good homes too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Wow that looks fun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I would love to make it to Dollywood this year. My family got season passes and they have bring a friend tickets, so we're going but we're not sure exactly when. I'd love to go to Kings Island too, it's been too long. But I don't know if that will happen this year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Yay Tapatalk is working for me again as well! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I'm still having issues with Tapatalk, won't let me log in. I've only ever signed up for the site with one account. Works on my computer though, and works on Safari on my phone. Could I be doing something wrong on my end?
  19. Same issue here. I just tried to log in now on tapatalk and it wasn't working.
  20. Back when I lived there in the Six Flags days it was always PACKED. Long lines, barely any room to walk. Then again that was in 2003 when the economy was very different. That darn road in front of the park was the worst though. It could NOT handle the traffic flow at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Sad, but not surprised. Such a shame for those who live there. I'm sure it'll be another dilapidated vacant lot wasting beautiful lakefront space. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. What if a branch falls on the track? I've always wanted to try one of these but I don't know if I'm brave enough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I find Magnum's bunny hills super painful too. I broke my tailbone a few years ago so that may have something to do with it. It was a ton of fun otherwise but I couldn't ride it a second time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I'd like to see either an RMC conversion, or something interesting done with that part of the park, like a dark ride. Mean Streak's area always just felt like a dead end to me. Whatever it is, I'm excited to see what happens! What flats does CP not have at this point? I feel like they have everything but a Top Spin but I could be forgetting something.
  25. I'm guessing either MagentaLizard could be right about the antique cars maybe returning, or they'll add a flat. Since Mystic Timbers will likely be a less expensive coaster addition than in recent years, I bet a flat isn't out of the realm of possibility. I'll be thrilled if the flat is inside the Crypt building. But either way it's exciting to see Rivertown getting some TLC!
