    The Giga Speculation Thread

    They aren’t hints for future attractions; they’re just fun Easter eggs.

    Next NEW Coaster

    Have you even ridden it? It's small in size, but it packs quite a wallop. $15 million is not a small investment like you seem to think.

    Anti-rollbacks on Mystic Timbers

    It was added for this Winterfest to prevent it from valleying like last year.

    TOWER Johnny?

    Already a thread here:

    What do you think KI would get in 2020?

    I don't know when you last visited, but Banshee is not Kings Island's last major coaster installation. As far as wing coasters, I've only ridden GateKeeper but I thought that the ride experience (outside of the near-miss elements) felt nearly identical to Banshee.

    Lion Country Safari Mauling: An Untold Story

    I think most 20-year-olds have the common sense to not leave your jeep in a lion enclosure, especially if you have been told not to multiple times.

    Firehawk's Last Rites-er, Rides

    I don’t think the park has said anything yet.

    Firehawk's Last Rites-er, Rides

    New blog post up, this one on Firehawk's last flight. Bring your tissues for this one (just kidding). http://kingsislandghosts.blogspot.com/2018/11/Firehawks-final-flight.html

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    It’s supposed to parody Mark Twain’s famous quote, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    Or, conversely, if 10/28 is the final day of operation for the ride, this would be confirmation that it is a coaster.

    Haunt Expectations

    Probably staffing. There were three Scare Actors in the whole Backwoods Bayou maze when I went through last year.
  12. New blog post is up. A document in photos of an area that will look very different next year. http://kingsislandghosts.blogspot.com/2018/09/a-changing-landscape.html
  13. I really enjoyed Icon at Blackpool Pleasure Beach; this looks to be even better! I have never been to Carowinds...next year might change that!

    Kings Mills Antique Autos Path Discussion

    The Rivertown side was called the Ohio Overland Auto Livery and the Coney Mall side was Les Taxis. The Auto Livery closed in 1997 or 1998 (I have heard differing dates). I am not sure why one side closed several years before the other side. There was no announcement or article that ran in any area newspapers when it closed.
  15. There are buildings “off the beaten track” that are used for mazes—see Blackout, Slaughterhouse, etc. The Crypt building and the former arcade are very large, very prominent buildings located right on the main midway that are essentially abandoned. If you had never been to Kings Island before, what would your impression be of the park with giant vacant buildings rotting away on the main midways?
