This is going to sound odd,but some theming for Diamondback would be nice,especially if it came with a repaint.

That is a good idea. DB was put in when theming was not as important, and they just wanted to add rides. Now that CF has seen the importance of theming and has started inventing in more theme, a current ride theme upgrade would add a lot to the ride experience.

I would also like to see the Banshee lighting package updated. Banshee's light package from like 2014-2018 had a lot of LED lights and a little fog, but it seems like lately the lighting package has been disappearing and not as good as it used to. The LED movers that were in the queue were I think removed after 2018 which is a shame. The maintenance lights on the lift also seem to be burnt out. I'd like to see the lighting package updated maybe for its 10th anniversary in 2024 along with a repaint. I'd also like to see a purple LED strip added to the lift like on Orion.

I'd also love to see that. Maybe build a wood queue house over the queue line. Also please repaint Diamondback.

I loved all the painting that was done this last offseason, unfortunately it also made Diamondback and Banshee stick out a little bit more. That red just fades so quickly.

I totally agree, If you look at Diamondback and Banshee they both look a lot different than what they used too. If you look at Intimidator at Carowinds they re-painted it last season and it looks a lot better, it makes it look very new. I would love to see the same treatment done to both of them. A little bit of paint could go a long way for guests!

Love seeing all the upgrades and refurbs for this season. If I could pick one general thing to change it would be trees. Would love to see more trees planted around the park and rides. There is so much empty space and flat, wide pathways. Additional trees and landscaping would make the park look a lot nicer and add additional shading around the area too.

I Think that if they put a Mack Multi-launch like Copper head strike at Carowinds in The Vortex plot of land they could put the entrance at the end of Coney Mall and they could have a crowd draw to the end of Coney, I rarely see guests go down there.

Also I have already said it but I would love a wild mouse at KI there is a lot of places it could go, and would fit nicely.

I would love to see a wild mouse at KI, most of the parks in the chain have them and everytime I ride one of them, I just wish more and more our park had one, it would be a perfect fit for riders who don’t want crazy thrills but want a fun experience with their friends and family!

I also believe a wild mouse coaster would be a nice addition. I rode Apple Zapple at Kings Dominion. It was pretty alright for a mouse. I rode Wild Mouse at Hersheypark a few years back. I like how it was a little more thrilling, but there were several places where I had to hold the lab bar between me and my kid to keep my legs from banging it.

I totally agree! My personal favorite and most comfortable wild mouse I have done is Ricochet at Carowinds. That kind of wild mouse is what I really want to see at KI.

I would love to see them redesign the entrance and exit in and out of the park.  I feel like I am playing real life Frogger entering the park and avoid not getting ran into by people crossing over from the exit.  Wish they would either switch the exit to the guest relations side with a short fence directing people out into the parking area or have two exits out of the park on the perimeters.  Keep the current one by International Restaurant and the other by Guest Relations with a small fence to guide people away from the center where the metal detectors are where people coming into the park are.  Would need to work around the ticket booths and season pass somehow but sure they could find a way that works better.

Now that The Beast has been working well for a change, something I'd like to see in the upcoming future - 

1. Childhood dream of seeing Intamin manufacture their double or triple Ferris wheel again with the first installation being the new Zodiac at KI..... wishful thinking because I don't think that'll ever happen.

2. I'm with some of you.guys that painting and or adding lights on Banshee and dback would be great

3. Repaint of Woodstock Express. It's still very nickelodeon in it's color scheme. Should have yellow track with red trains or something like that. Definitely yellow track because Woodstock is yellow. Idk what color trains but definitely stay away from the neon nickelodeon colors.... don't want a tatsu repaint on our hands!
