  1. Park Nitpicks

    I was very dismayed to see the removal of the ginko trees in the former smoking ring in the area formerly known as Coney Mall. The new maple trees look nice though. The ginkos were probably past their serviceable life and the fruit did smell terrible. Just sad to see them gone since they had been in the park since 1972, and if I am not mistaken, were transplanted from Coney Island. (correct me if I am wrong.)
  2. New Music throughout the park

    I loved the Rivertown music! I am very happy with the changes the park is making. I've never been more optimistic about the future of our park!

  4. Coasterstock 2018

    Can you buy Coasterstock tickets at the park or is it online only? I'm a terrific procrastinator. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. New Music throughout the park

    I'm esctatic about good music on International Street! It made my season last year. Excited to hear Rivertown's soundtrack tomorrow! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. Kentucky Kingdom

    I am excited about KK being reopened. It appears that they have done well. They have a great coaster collection, a good combination of flat rides and a good water park (or so I have been told.) If they continue to carefully build out the park they should be successful for a long time.

    Park officials have stated at enthusiast events that additional land is available to KK from the fair board and the height restriction would allow for a hyper in that location.
  8. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    I'm hoping that Cedar Fair has changed meat patty supplier. Or at least product. The last three years, the patty, even after cooking, had the appearance of a raw chub of meat, with the extruded texture. The taste, in my experience was not good at all. This was noticed at KI, CP, KD and Knotts.
  9. I've got my "ticket" secured for April 30th!
  10. Did Eurythmics ever perform at Timberwolf? My favorite all time band; IIRC it caused a big fight with my parents because my friends parents invited me to go to KI with him and to see the concert, but my parents didn't want me to go a "rock concert." (I was 14 at the time.)
  11. Meal Deals, and meal deals

    I've found that later in the season (June), they are more willing to accommodate special requests: At the Chicken Shack, I have asked for no fries and a piece of bread instead and they do that. Last year I asked for a coney instead of fries at IS SL and they had no problem with that. The year before, I did the opposite (when fries were not on the menu for the meal plan.) My niece wanted fries. They did it then too. I am ok with portion sizes being smaller on most meals because I usually end of tossing food when it is just me there with no niece or other family.
  12. 2018 Kings Island Bucket List

    My goal is to be a little more social. I am an extrovert by nature, but my job drains me so parks have been a good way to blend in. Ive enjoyed KIC friends at Winter fest, I want to continue that over the 2018 season. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. Twisted tiger for bgt?

    If you feed the troll, it will just keep coming back for more.
  14. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    This is the last Friday night until September that people will not be riding coasters, eating food, hanging out on International Street at Kings Island!
  15. I had never been to KD before they celebrated their anniversary, but it seems like they really went all out to bring back the charm. Would be great if KI did something similar for the 50th. I think they have been doing some small things for nostalgia sake, I'd like to see them ramp it up.
