Last Operating Day for 2020 is Nov 1st!

Kings Island is now closed for 2020.

It's nice on crowded days when they have a ride op asking how many riders are in each group and only letting a certain amount of people into the station.

I agree, that is nice, when done correctly.

Too many times I've witnessed Banshee dispatched with partially loaded trains all due to the fact the attendant did not fill the station in a timely manner.

Now THAT, really grinds my gears!

I don't like "thug looking" teenagers walking around like they own the place.

And game barkers and ride ops with mikes who think they are the entertainment. Guests who don't wear deodorant. People who talk and/or play with cellphones during shows. People who congregate at

On Monday, while riding the Blue Racer, there was a (presumed) teenager a couple of cars up that had a stuffed Snoopy and proceeded to hold up in the air from somewhere around the top of the lift hill (I was watching Firehawk on the ascent, so I'm not sure if they put it up while on the lift hill or not) until the end of the ride. While I doubt a small stuffed animal would have done anyone great harm if he had lost control and it came flying back and hit somebody, I can't say that with 100% confidence and am glad I didn't find out. None the less, I was really hoping there was some form of security there to escort this kid out of the park when we got back in the station. There was no such thing and the kid was off the ride and down the ramp fairly quickly.

I saw the same thing multiple times in one day. SFNE doesn't mess around! I love SFNE, i think it's actually one of the better overall parks in the chain. Really friendly staff, decent coasters, easy to get around and its really clean.

As for my pet peeve, have you ever seen someone litter 10 feet away from a trash can? Come on now, have some class...

I have a picture somewhere of a boy maybe 12 years old sitting next to a woman who appeared to be his mom on a bench that had a trash can sitting beside it. The boy was throwing trash on the ground and the mom didn't say a word. People are extremely disrespectful.

Or if a trash can is completely full (doesn't happen very often at KI) yet someone just adds to the growing Jenga tower of trash, further adding to the impending doom of the tower toppling, liquid cheese and ketchup splattering, just to bake in the sun and develop that awful "hot trash" smell we all know and love.

It annoys me. Walk 20 feet and throw it away in the next available receptacle.

Only SOME people.

The world has many good, decent, caring people.

Thankfully.

My biggest KI pet peeve is when some parents' kids are so out of control that they kick me in the face in The Beast station.

Right, Lora?

:)

Some might argue that you deserved it. You took a kick in the face like a man.

I am disappointed in her. I thought she had more willpower to say no. I never dreamed she would say yes.

1. I remember a trip to Niagara Falls when I was 9, and there were trash cans ("dust bins," I was on the Canadanian side, eh) that had façades painted to look like animals with their mouths opened. I guess it was thought that kids would find it more fun to 'pitch in' if throwing away litter was like feeding these "animals." Where is such genius these days, eh?

2. Was it a flying round-house kick, or just your garden variety, forward toe-to-the-temple shock move? (EDIT- ...because, you know, the latter would tend to indicate a measure of self-control... :P )

As others have said before, line jumpers who want to move ahead to meet with their "group". They need to go to the back and wait the same amount of time everyone else has to, and/or make sure their group all enters the line together at the same time.

Unsecured cell phones on rides.

 

People arguing with ride ops.

 

However, most of the time in parks I'm in kind of this "happy bubble" where I don't notice a LOT of the pet peeves I normally have (people walking slow, etc.). Normally toward the end of the day when I'm tired I notice it more. :P

Or the folks in line can simply stop and let those who filled in behind them advance, until their friends catch up.

I wonder how many of those people are actually trying to catch up to other members of their party, and how many are lying just to try to get people to move out of their way.
