Kings Island 2016 Discussion Thread

I suspect that a 100 percent perfect re-creation of either would disappoint us all. Times have changed, the world has moved on. Our memories have burnished and improved what was.

I tell myself this as I yearn for a Racer that runs as I remember it running in 1972. I had only The Shooting Star and Camden Park's Big Dipper to compare it to.

Now, more than 125 wooden coasters later, I doubt my opinion would be the same...

It's because people like them and want to see more. 

I fit on Diamondback!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I'm still so excited about this!

You are right. Perhaps a bigger better version of either ride using modern technology. Maybe a spinning car version of Shooting Star and 90 vertical drop version of Lost River. Both with nostalgic stations so we can ride and also remember the good old days.

It appears as though the game shed across from the train station has been razed to make room for the new relocated funnel cake building.

A little speculation here, but to me it looks like the concrete poured here looks way to big to fit just that new soccer game. Could we see a large Rivertown expansion with a new railroad crossing like at Cedar Point by Rougarou?

Kings Island is defiantly hinting something for near future. Why else would they all the sudden be posting old pics?

As a nice diversion?

Kings Island has just confirmed on Instagram that they are building a tunnel on Woodstock Express, and a new White Water Canyon entrance, explaining the construction in Rivertown.

No such confirmation was made by the park on Instagram. A photo was posted about track work on the ride. There is a temporary plastic covering in the area where the carpenters are working on the ride this winter.

Thanks for clearing that up!
