I think the exterior of the building needs to be updated. Maybe try to encase the box a little more

Wipe that ugly building out and put it a water ride!    #makerivertownwetagain

I could see a dark Wild Mouse in the old Crypt building

That would actually be pretty neat. It would have to be a very compact design though. The ride would have to fit within a 105x110 space.

I would be all for making the height of the last building a little smaller. It doesn't need to be that tall anymore since the crypt isn't in the building anymore. I know it would cost extra money to do that, but you would be able to see more of Diamondback going thru the course instead of a big giant eyesore building.

With Vortex's land being the biggest elephant in the room for KI, I think the Crypt building will continue to be put on the back burner as it isn't really losing the park any money at this point and functions as a haunt attraction. Sometime this decade I expect it to be touched but I wouldn't hold my breath with Covid-19 pushing any potential projects back.

I think the idea of putting a custom wild mouse inside the Crypt structure is great. They could incorporate an elevator lift instead of a lift hill to save space. They could also reuse old theming and and add some more around the ride itself and be a runaway mine ride!

What if it was turned into an observation tower and restaurant to watch the biggest fastest tallest longest meanest metal roller coaster ever to strike Kings Island

Put a mountain facade on it and make it a family dark ride like Calico Mine Ride at Knotts. 
 

That building and junkyard coaster are the biggest eyesores in the park.

I think this building would be good for a large virtual motion ride like Battle for the Eire at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.  Only instead of riding on the magical Irish fairy creature, you could be riding on the back of The Beast, paws with the broken chains and all, on a mission to take out the Mystic Timbers Creatures.  I think it'd be awesome and perfect for Rivertown

It's hard to envision anything other than another flat ride being able to work within the space the attraction building provides. I think they should just demolish it and start fresh.

Been thinking a lot about the Crypt building recently. Is it an eyesore? Yes. With that said, however, I think demolishing it would have a lot of lost potential.

I think the wild mouse idea wouldn't be bad idea. The Dark Knight coaster keeps coming to mind and KI could easily do something like an abandoned mine shaft like Mystery Mine at Dollywood. I think KI needs more indoor attractions and while wild mouses don't have excellent capacity, it would give us another indoor attraction. Heck you could even have indoor and outdoor sections like Mystery Mine if they wanted. 

The outside could get a wood facade or something to give it that mine shaft look. I don't know the feasibility of building a coaster inside an existing building that was designed for an entirely different ride, but I think tearing the building down without exhausting all other options would be a waste in my opinion.

 

On a side note, I'd love to see KI get a more immersive dark ride styled coaster in general, whether it be like Mystery Mine or Blazing Fury from Dollywood.

Why not just put a strata coaster inside of it... or even a Trex? talk about potential...
