Current wait times

Recommended Posts

Depends on the ride and when it was updated. Vortex has been a 10 min wait with 50 reported for me before. It's usually within 10 minutes thought. What times are you getting? Coming up in a little while.

I think it's about 10-15 off. However, I've noticed some days that a ton of rides will say 0 minute wait when it is very busy, so I'm not sure how things are updated exactly.

The date went about as perfect as it could, although Drop Tower did not open by the time we left. Ride times were long enough for us to have a conversation, but short enough to get a rather large amount done. Chaperone was great (her mother), she was great to talk to and gave us plenty of time to ourselves. Both she and I had an absolute blast, and may easily be the best day of the season for me. Kings Island's not just a thrill seekers paradise, it's a place where memories are made.  :wub:

I had my first trip ever at Soak City today. Never been to a water park before. Now I'm in line for The Beast. Pretty decent wait. Crowded for a Wednesday .

As of right now, crowds are light which is the norm on Sunday mornings.

Thinking of bringing out of town guests to ki this afternoon and evening. How are the crowds today? Long wait times?

My friends would like to get the Fast Lane passes but I'd rather not if its not too packed.

Goble and I are here after finishing The Beach. Wait times aren't bad, though Diamondback is backed up as usual. Banshee has been at the stairs.

Anyone know current wait times? Thinking of making the trip for some night rides!

I wish they would update the ride times for people outside of the park on the KI app. I really like that they include the ride times when you are in the park but for those who might want to drop by randomly ride time updates would be great. I know if I had a free day and I saw 10-15 minute waits for most of the rides I would drop by for a couple of hours.

I can see both sides of it. They'd see me more often on slow days if I could see the wait times when trying to decide. At the same time, if there are big waits today, I won't be heading that way. I think it's a 50/50 split on whether it would help them or hurt them.

^ Liked for the info and as a unit holder, not the busyness as a guest.

The length of Diamondstacks line cant be used as a reliable representation of park business, and honestly nor can any of the food service establishments in the park this year from what Ive heard.  The webcams may be a better representation, and since one has to be online in some capacity to read this thread, I feel the KI website with said webcams would be the more trustworthy option.

How accurate are the wait times in the official KI app?

 

It seems to me from the Interactive Park maps that they update every hour.  Which is not nearly as frequent as it should be.

Headed that way anyways, hoping the crowd thins out for some good night rides!

Very busy is an understatement! When there is an hour wait for AE, that's not my kind of evening! :) WindSeeker, Delirium, and Drop Tower are 5-10 minute waits.

Went by there today around 6:30ish and the parking lot looked super-packed as some people were parking out in the grass (close to the road, near Soak City lot).

It is really busy. My friend left and I'm resting my feet/charging my phone before heading back in. Banshee was listed as a 15 min wait but was 45 - we got on the ride at 8p. When we rode The Beast (before walking up to AE and Banshee) it was an hour-ish wait. The queue section closest to the exit was open as well as two switchbacks in the station.

Wait times are still as long as earlier today. The Beast has both sections full and a line out the entrance. No ride through the forest for me tonight.
