CoastersRZ Posted April 27, 2018 Share Posted April 27, 2018 Coney has exciting things in store for the 2018 season. In addition to the previously announced temporary attraction, the Island Wheel (more info on that here) there are many exciting changes coming to the park. To make room for some of these additions, one attraction had to be retired. The Como Cruisers have officially been retired. Taking up residence in their spot on Lake Como will be Storybook Pedal boats. Swans and Dragons pedal boats will now call Lake Como home. There is more that is new in 2018. The Mini Golf Course has been renovated, and features recreations of 9 Cincinnati landmarks. Additionally, the Python roller coaster is receiving a new paint job and some theming. Check out this rendering: Additionally, Coney has partnered with ThinkTV Network and CET Public Television to create a “beyond broadcast” experience that incorporates popular PBS Kids characters with a “play and learn” environment. Included will be interactives that have been chosen specifically to align with the PBS Kids mission of building imagination and curiosity. Starting with the new PBS Kids Backyard, a playground area for kids to climb, slide, play and learn. When it’s time to cool down or calm down, parents and kids can head to the new PBS Kids Quiet Time area. PBS Kids Quiet Time area allows moms and their little ones a cool quiet place to step away from the sun and crowds for a needed break. The room is equipped with two private breastfeeding stations, changing tables, private restroom, and a quiet space for kids to relax. This new space is equipped with PBS Kids “quiet time” videos to aid in calming little ones and perhaps help foster nap time. In addition to the changes to the Python, several rides at Coney are getting new 3d ride signage from Kingdom Productions. Read more and see more photos here. Below is just one sample image of the new sign for the kiddie airplane ride, now called Flying Aces.
