Kings Island Gift Ideas

Recommended Posts

The replica of the Diamonback model that actually moves would make a great Kings Island present, I have seen it in the park being sold before, I would love to have a model of The Beast that has the tunnels and the carts move, I dont know if it actually exists, but if it did, I would definitly buy it in a heartbeat.

Models of Face/Off and Delirium are currently being offered on Craigslist. I'm tempted to buy Delirium and wrap it in Christmas lights since I donated my tree to Goodwill last month and haven't gotten a new one yet. It's three feet tall!

^Donating you tree is awesome! We've was talking about getting a new tree this year, which didn't happen. That had never crossed my mind.

We give 90% of our kid's outgrown clothes, among other things, to a local church here at home. Now I know what to do with this one when it's time for it to come down.

Thank's for the idea!

EDIT: Just checked out those models. They would be neat as heck to have.

If I found one of King Cobra, i'd be all over it.

Some local antique shops might have vintage Kings Island ashtrays (not kidding), plates, cups, Eiffel Tower models, etc. I found a couple of plates once at an antique store in west Hamilton (I think it has since closed down), but it was a neat thing to have there for awhile. There was speculation that the "plates" were themselves ashtrays, but I thought they were too nice for that (they had tiny, blue-and-white tilework around the edges, a painting of the Eiffel Tower, Royal Fountains and the Sky Ride on the front, and the back was painted gold). I've since lost it and another one like it. E-Bay has some stuff as well.

I'm sure they have to have existed, but no, I don't remember seeing one for sale (and for a few months, I was looking on eBay for coaster shirts all the time).

But looking for one online just now found this article from last year about gifts for coaster enthusiasts: http://www.coaster101.com/2013/12/02/gift-guide-coaster-enthusiasts-2013/

Anything made from this fabric, or if the person you're gifting to sews herself or himself, a yard or two of the fabric itself:

Just bought some for myself. It wasn't out yet when I was looking for coaster-themed fabric earlier this summer.

I found a cool Phantom Theater Shirt at Cincyshirts.com, all Phantom Theater fans should get one, I honestly do'nt remember if they were sold in the park or not. I would definitly buy one.

I also found a Son of Beast shirt and a shirt with the original Bat logo on that same site. :)

That is a pretty awesome site, A Son of Beast shirt would be nice, I should buy one, and then wear it next to the Son of Beast gravestone in the Banshee Line, as a sign of respect.

That is cool. Makes me wonder if I could paint a similar theme onto a tie. Yes. A hand painted tie. My niece in Toledo is broke, needs an Etsy idea, and we are bringing them back with a purpose.

(I think the best KI gift is a season pass, personally.)

Somebody is selling a large Nicktoons sign from KI, for those of you who liked that era best:

And I can't believe they pressed this album, but i can't buy a DVD of Cirque Imagine *grumble grumble*

http://m.ebay.com/itm/331405729444?nav=SEARCH

I wonder if it has the song I remember from the shows of my childhood that included the line "and I have to go to the BATHROOM!"

Christmas may be over for this winter, but this would be a neat toy for the mechanically minded coaster enthusiast in your life. And it's on sale for the moment at only $10.

I know I want one :)

That Delirium mock up looks strikingly like one that was stored in the International Restaurant for years. I wonder how they ended up with it.

I can think of a few people who might like to have this tape of Kings Island's Wurlitzer Band Organ.

http://m.ebay.com/itm/111572807916?nav=SEARCH

I'm very tempted myself except I'm not sure I have something that will play tapes anymore. I have an old boom box but I believe its tape playing days are over.

That's great! I definitely don't have a turntable, or I probably would have bought the LP of Celebration! from KI's long-running show that was on eBay last month.

Although I guess it shouldn't stop me, I own a Daekor Pot-Bellies* record I've never heard, and have no idea what it sounds like.

*the stuffed bears and other animals that were ubiquitous in the 80s that everyone else seems to have forgotten. I wanted to start a fan site for them like a decade ago but just never quite got it together. I own a lot of them, and a little bit of the accessories.

That's my first one, who went through my hospital stay with me when I had open heart surgery when I was four. In the picture, he's assisting me while I do "surgery" on a doll, learning what they were going to do to me. He still sleeps in my bed every night over thirty years later.
