Kings Island 2016 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I had one my best ever days at the park yesterday.  Very short visit, and only rode The Beast--twice.  While in line for Diamondback, it went down, and stayed down.  I was in line with Gary Coleman, and we finally were able to connect.  Really nice guy.  Ride associates were walking the diminishing line with updates.  Was just a really relaxing time talking with them and Gary.

What's Gary's ride count up to now?  Hasn't he pretty much set the world record at this point?

A few weeks ago I saw him. The number then was 14,000, if I'm remembering correctly.

He was going to take ride #14201, but the ride broke.  It'll be a while until he can go back to riding as the park is closed for private events.  (Unless he can go to private events.)

Drove by this morning. Sign said private event for "Lbrands". Columbus based parent company of Victoria secret, the limited, bath & body works, etc.

Parking lot was basically empty at 10:30... Seems like it would be an amazing day at the park.

Having a little argument with my sister. So, basically the worst day to go to Kings Island in October would be a Saturday if it was nice weather?

Saturday=Bad! ;)

It all depends.  The park is very "alive" Saturday's in October.  Perhaps at it's peak honestly.  A Fast Lane Plus/Fright Lane, on a Haunt Saturday...pretty good stuff.  Just sayin'.

I have no desire to be in the park during haunt... Especially with my kids. Can anyone tell me if this Friday the haunt starts at 6pm when the park opens... Or are there some haunt free hours right at opening that we could walk around in peace?

Also note that KI does the "wall of monsters" on Fridays, where scareactors storm the front gate right as the park opens. You may encounter them before even entering the park.

They do have the 'No Boo' necklaces for a small stipend, but if you just don't like the fog and gore, Friday is not the night.

So every few months, I delete and then re-add my season pass to my app so that I can see the updated total for my annual visits. It's fun for me . Today when I tried to re-add my pass, it says 0 visits for 2016. Is anyone else having this issue?

The main thing that has changed since the last time I did this is that I have a already renewed my pass for 2017... And I haven't visited the park since I've done the renewal... But the information on the re-loaded pass still says 2016.

Anyway... Anyone else having this issue?

I have not renewed yet, but here are my observations. All the pass photos were gone and the passes only showed a couple of visits. So I deleted and added back the passes. Now the photos showed up and the visit count for KI is up to six. Not sure how accurate that is but probably close as there were one or two SC only visits and I have not kept a mental note or notched my bedpost.

So I suspect renewing your pass restarted the counter. CF IT at their finest. :)

Went to Haunt last night and had a great time, may post my thoughts in that thread later, but on a more general KI (maybe Cedar Fair as a whole?) related note, I really don't like the new maps. I know they aren't new this year, but I grabbed one last night for Haunt and still don't understand why they did away with the folded maps? Haven't been to another theme park that uses this style of just giving you a big sheet of paper. Just a small gripe, but I don't get it.

Carowinds and Kings Dominion also now use the sheet style maps. Cedar Point's is still foldable, though. I don't know what version other Cedar Fair parks use.

You know you can fold paper yourself, yes?

I don't mind them at all. Fold it up and stick it in your pocket. Actually fits better since they are smaller.

So random thought.. how are there so many people at the park right now, knew that the park would be opened.. when the website says it doesn't open till 7pm? It doesn't say HAUNT starts at 7.. it just says 7pm for park hours lol
