  1. My phone is a medical device. Do I need to present a letter of medical necessity to GS? Or do I just leave it in my pocket as always and ride on?
  2. And I'm glad we won't see that at KI. Looks terrible. And since the park posts a security guard there, they assume liability. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    Cross threading just a bit here. I am enjoying reading the Adventure Express history thread. So many details lost to time. Maybe we should start a thread as a new attraction opens to give specific details about it. Like with Mystic Timbers, all the little details. It would be good to record history has it happens.

    That is the correct path. But, maybe you could get some exclusive ERT at the train station Freestyle. I bet your concierge, Dennis, can make that happen. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Ask Kings Island a Question

    Please noooooooo….I love our fountains just as is. They can tweak what they have, but please no dancing waters type of stuff.

    Up Charge For Gold

    Actually, since this level of pass is exclusive to you alone, you can choose your favorite Hannah Barbera character. Dennis Spiegel will be your concierge on WindSeeker.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    ^The people who reside in the Dogstreet Cemetery might not like this placement. Missouri Jane might not be so nice to the park.

    I think @King Ding Dong should get his own platinum elite diamond exclusive pass. This would allow him to have a special gondola on WindSeeker that is equipped with a Freestyle concierge.

    The Flat Ride Speculation Thread

    I'm not a fan on spinny or circular rides. I'd like to see some Antique Cars. I'd like to see a Skyride. I'd like to see the train re-invigorated. Those are just my personal preferences. For others, I would like to see some thrilling rides, but I don't know enough about them to name them. Oh, I would love to see Congo Falls relocated to Rivertown.

    Disappointed by ride advertisement?

    This and the TR:TR teasers are an absolute blast. Might even be considered FUN.

    The landscaping in the animation is much nicer than what we have with the Junkyard Stunt Coaster.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I went thru Coney BBQ yesterday and did not eat there. There is a marked change in the pulled pork. When I ate there last week, it was different. It smelled like bacon (I love bacon!). It had the same smell yesterday; and it looked almost like chunky hamburger. The chicken quarters looked small and wrinkled. The corn on the cob looked dried out. The smoked sausage looked good. Maybe these recent experiences have been related to the time of day and the fact that the park was relatively dead. I waited until closer to park close to get some Street Pizza. It was really good.

    Some observations from my 6/26 visit: 1. It looks to me like Vortex got a new compressor. 2. The landscaping crew has taken it up a level this year. The park is really beautiful. 3. Most effects were working on Adventure Express except the wind sounds in the tunnels and the lava light was not on. I really like the swords being back on and the creaking noises on the lift hill. 4. FOF: the aluminum siding on one corner is till flapping in the breeze. 5. The Beast is running rougher this year. 6. Banshee is rattling pretty bad. 7. Even with remodels, the restrooms still smell. I think it is a combination on no automatic flushes on the urinals and a lack of air circulation. 8. Cirque Gravity is incredible. 9. Food service is much improved over previous years. Generally quick and the employees are friendly. 10. Diamondback was running great.
