    Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    I was riding Banshee today with 2 friends and had an unexpected experience. When the employees came to check our restraints, the guy on the right side checking my friends decided it be best to start giving "Fun facts" about the holocaust to them. The girl checking my restraint on my side looked kinda horrified/angry that he did it, and as she walked back to her post i could hear her telling another employee he was doing it frequently. Once the train got back to the station he was gone, and a large group of employees had gathered around the ride exit. Didn't catch a name since he was on the other side of the train, but i'm a bit shocked either way.

    Scooby-Doo show?

    If that was the show, it seems so! But again, its hard to really remember if it was something that happened. I remember asking how he got in the chair during the show without anyone seeing but he said it was a secret. (I think there was a part in the show where some props moved around as a distraction and he was slipped in from the back) I feel like i remember a lot about the show even though i cant confirm it true or not.

    Scooby-Doo show?

    I'm hoping i don't have any false memories of the show, but didn't they have an audience member come on set to play the "Ghost" who was revealed to be under the chair? I was pretty young when i saw the show in person but i distinctly remember my dad actually wound up getting picked to be on stage, and upon being revealed he jumped out of the chair and scared Scooby

    Haunt 2017

    Hey guys, got a Haunt question! Today i went in for actor auditions and after a strange interview of screaming and howling i was selected for Wold Pack. As for my question, before going in today i applied online as a makeup artist. (Im already a digital and traditional artist with practice) While i was in today i was told tomorrow there will be audition/interviews for that tomorrow. Personally i would like the makeup job more than the acting position but still would be fine as an actor. Would you recommend going in tomorrow for the makeup interview too, or sending a follow up email? Thanks for any advice! Edit: Also as a secondary kind of question, do they always assign specific houses? my friends who worked at haunt before were more in the Carnevil and freak street area which had more of my attention

    Mystic Timbers Queue Music

    Wow that IMAscore track is astonishing when you can hear it clearly, i just wish it was clearer in the queue! Would take a custom track over funTV any day, though i also love the radio track coming from the Truck in the entrance. The theming of the ride has really grown on me

    How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    On the other hand, Phil Collins In the Air tonight was released in 81 and would fit the timeline, but thats also unlikely (though would be really cool)

    How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    The ride was down for a little today, i waited outside by the truck and got to hear a lot of the radio station tracks it does, i think its really cool touch to have the radio quality music and old KI advertising playing on it. Really is a bummer though to have the cool ambient music in the line being mashed up with the FunTV audio though, takes me out of the atmosphere

    Mystic Timbers Queue Music

    I tried shazaming right next to a speaker with my phone up to it and it did not come back with anything. Im gonna guess on that it is a custom track for the park

    Kings Island 2017 Discussion Thread

    Saw two interesting, well poor behavior examples tonight. In line for Diamondback when a group of 3 or so jumped over the outside fence into the queue of Diamondback and in front of people. (They called for people to join but nobody did) Earlier however to which i didn't really have anything i could have done, back in The Bat line a group of kids stopped at the 2nd entrance to the ride (the first entrance/exit once getting off) One of them jumped over the railing and ran into the trees, the group turned saw me looking and ran off. the one he jumped and ran into the trees later ran back out and jumped back on the path and disappeared.

    Island Smokehouse now open at Soak City

    Im wondering if they will have occasional meal plan specials like that to get people to try out other options and perhaps come back and buy them rather than meal plan the others, seems like a good idea to me.

    What rides should I take my glasses off for?

    I wear medium sized round (John Lennon) Glasses and have never had any issues with them bing knocked off or even loose. The only time i was worried about losing my glasses was on Diamondback but even then i was fine. However my glasses fit fairly snug on my face. I do however have round sunglasses i wear on top of these when its bright out and i will take those off for rides because the fit loosely. (Although when placed in my pocket for Diamondback they got bent beyond repair, and when later clipped to my pocket i got off Diamondback to find they were gone so i should invest in a case for my new pair)

    How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    I think it would be cool to have tome subtle prop movements before the show plays, kind of a build up to it because (to me) once it does play, it overshadows a lot of the rest. The last ride i had i sent just watching all the props which was very entertaining

    How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    I don't know if anyone has had this issue as of yet, but yesterday when riding with a friend who was riding for the first time this season, the shed was having issues. The moving props still worked (it was the first time i noticed the lockers) but the screens were glitched out with the front showing the aftermath of one the whole time, and the side had half turned off, and the other was projecting another ending. (at first when we pulled in i thought there was a new one i hadn't seen)

    The Story of Mystic Timbers (Spoilers)

    Wow, i love your breakdown of the ride, I never thought of the Queue being us exploring to woods! I really love the storytelling it can offer and that it can be a straightforward story, or something to debunk, it really adds to the whole experience. I hope that maybe over time, they adjust some of the story driven audio to make it easier to hear, i think it makes the wait to ride much more fun when you get to put together a story while waiting.
