Gee, you'd think the park would have employees clean up after the dog. No one should have to step in Snoopy crap.

It will be down most of the time. Very little of the time is a drop ride rising or at the top.

NEW for 2013....A duplicate ride from Kings Island's sister park is moved to Kings Island. Creating an all new expirience....

Swarm from Thorpe Park.  Keep the theming and put it in Area 72!  I’m a big fan of B&M Wing coasters and I just love the theming on this one.

Freestyle from Cavallino Matto in Italy should move to Kings Island. Naturally there would be an obvious name change. :^)

 

I miss the King Cobra probably more than any former ride in the park, so much so that I've looked into incorporating a quick trip to this park in Italy into a larger vacation, just to ride the Cobra clone.

I know Cedar Fair doesn't clone their rides like Paramount did and Six Flags does today, but I would love it If Kings Island built a similar Floorless model similar to Dominator at Kings Dominion. As I've said in another thread, I would love it if the route was slightly different from Dominator. I would imagine the drop would be like how Vortex used to be after the first hill, then it could make a right turn all the way around, then do a curving up hill that would turn left and then go into two loops similar to how Vortex was layed out. I know Kings Island never had a Floorless, but hey the route I propose could pay tribute to Vortex in a way.

I'm surprised the chain doesn't buy some flats in bulk like SF does.  I don't think anyone would be that upset if for example, both us and Carowinds both got a Screamin' Swing in the same year. 

 

Most of us got WindSeekers in 2011

I think the current business plan is diversification. Not all parks have the same things to make other parks worth visiting.

I feel like having a Six Flags platinum pass would get old

What percent of people who have a six flag membership visit more than one park? Realistically I think a very small percentage.

More than likely its small. But even still, that small percentage still encounters the same rides when they visit each park- Batman clones, superman clones, joker clones, giant frisbees, boomerangs, etc.

I wouldn't mind having Flash: Vertical Velocity moved to Kings Island. The zero g roll is something unique and the ride itself seems like it wouldn't be too complicated to remove and rebuild. I am sure there are plenty of spots it could fit in at Kings Island.

Flying Eagles from Carowinds back to Coney Mall.  Casino at DelGrossos back to Rivertown at KI.  Antique cars from Magic Springs and Worlds of Fun back to KI.  Flying Dutchman from KK back to Octoberfest.  Spinovator from Canadas Wonderland to Octoberfest.

Even though we already have Beast, Mystic, and Racer, I wouldn't say no if we got either of these honestly

 

 

Thunder runs a pretty boring coaster imo. It really doesn’t do anything. Raven on the other hand kicks ass. However both of those manufacturers no longer exist.

If we could move a ride within the park, I would choose to move Congo Falls closer to the other water rides. This would involve demolition of the Tomb raider building. I'm not sure if they want to do that just yet or not.

Dominator/Knight Flight has one of the best layouts for a looping coaster.  It is well paced.  There are no back-to-back inversions except the 2 in the cobra roll (which is required for a cobra roll).   There is a element between every inversion other than that.  

The ride however has gotten super vibrate-y over the last couple of years.  KD needs to do a refurbishment on it.
