From the Kings Island Facebook Page:

 

Something old will be new again. Find out what’s returning to Kings Island in 2019 tomorrow, Thursday, August 16. The announcement will be made at 2 p.m. in the Festhaus. All park guests are invited to attend.

Racer Retrack?
That's what I was thinking... a retract with a new light package and paint.... maybe backwards racer? But the last one is a bit of a stretch

My actual, non-cheeky guess:

Repainted Racer, new light package, station and queue refurb (with historical queue signage), extensive retrack (possibly by RMC), new trains, and one side runs backwards again.

Loop The Racer, retrack and add in a transition element so that the 2nd half of the ride is ridden backwards all while enhancing the timing aspect to ensure that a true "racing" element is brought back.

Possibilities are great, "tiques, enterprise, ice show to the feshaus, SOB re-do, etc....  Of course of all those ideas, mine is the best (unless KI has something better they reveal tomorrow) :)

The picture is basically the whole park, so I'm guessing they're bringing back the cornfields!:P

I say it's a Racer refurbishment.

I think they will do some work on Racer but my prediction is bringing our original Flying Eagles back or bringing back the Antiques.  If it was both that would be exceptional.

It says returning,  so it has to be something that is gone

Long 24 hours... wish I could be at the festhaus tomorrow

Flying Eagles is cool, but KI has to come better then that

Skyride or SOB would be a hard choice for me, My wife and I always mention Skyride when we get tired, but SOB would be a huge win for all

They would not be making the announcement on National Roller Coaster Day if it was the return of the cars, skyride, or any other non roller coaster attraction.

My guess is an announcement of a refurbishment of The Racer, and a return of the backwards facing cars on the blue track.

Maybe they’ll fix the fest house clock and add back some trams?

I have heard rumors of a lighting package on the Racer and a flat ride.

I could see more work being done on The Racer then just lighting but have not heard anything.

Lots of options for a flat ride, one of the flats purchased in Europe was announced for Carowinds but never installed.  Carowinds never reinstalled the flyers after they were removed.  Could be something new even.
