It was just over a year ago that the legendary Rick Wallenda set a new world record at Kings Island by doing an incredible high wire from the Eiffel Tower, past the front gate and back. This year, Kings Island does it again!

Nik Wallenda, a seventh generation member of the legendary Flying Wallendas, will bring high flying thrills to Kings Island once again on August 15th as he makes an incredible high wire walk from the parking lot to the Eiffel Tower - a distance of over 800'! This walk will be at an incredible height of 262' -- three times higher than the walk done by Rick Wallenda last year.

Nik Wallenda's death-defying walk will take place on August 15th at 7:00p and is included FREE with park admission!

What do Kings Island, Cedar Point, Knott's Berry Farm and Schlitterbahn all have in common? They're considered some of the most underrated parks by AOL Travel! "With over 360 acres, 80 attractions and a water park that's included in the price of admission, there's plenty of room to roam," stated the article written by some of AOL's top travel experts. To read the full article, click here.

Some would consider a night ride on Kings Island's legendary Beast or the new Diamondback roller coaster some of the most exciting and unpredictable experiences that a park goer could have. Kings Island is now open on July 25th and August 1st (both Saturdays) until midnight! Now you can enjoy all of the thrills that Kings Island offers late into the night!

Might as well start a roster to see who else is going. Copy and paste this list into your post if you're going. Even though a lot of us know each other, we might as well put our real first names on here.

1. kjkjkj/ Kyle- Maybe going

2. Ashers/ Ashley- Maybe going

I don't know, I may go. I wish we had more than a few days to decide though.

Same here, but it's a nice opportunity provided by GOCC. I don't have my schedule yet, but I'll likely be in the park one way or another so...

I'll be at the park that day, but I will not be paying to participate in the event. Not sure if that counts or not...

Should be fun considering I'm going to CP the next day... I wouldn't miss it though. I'll be there and ready to finally take my first ride on Drop Tower.

Only 1 guest per person?..... Then I can't go! I have two kids!

I don't see that on the flier, come to think of it. I put it in via force of habit. I'll shoot them an email and get an official ruling on it.

Just got word from GOCC. They're not limiting the guests. Please remember that anyone not a GOCC or KIC member must pay the non-member fee, though.

Like Justin, I will be there most likely but not at the event. I don't have the extra money for it right now and won't by the 1st. Too many bills due at the end of the month! :P

So is there no strictly official KIC day this year?

Even though Helbig said there would be one when he spoke at the Off Season Blues Party, Ryan has gone on record to say that there would not be a KIC event this year.

I would HIGHLY doubt that considering a good amount of ppl on this forum (including our admins) work at the park as Scaractors for Haunt ;) just sayin

Did anyone else buy the shirt yet?

I bought 2 one for me and one for my hubby :)

I also bought 10 of the Mid Summer Scream buttons for the Diamondback crew!!

Gonna be fun!

But will they have Bling?

Unfortuantly we will not be able to hit this one. Why are most all coaster events on Saturdays. :(

I can't take off 2 in a row and the weekend before is our big 5 park 4 day trip to PA/NJ
