Yeah that is ridiculous if the blocked off they close in spots first.  I would want to hear an explanation from management before criticizing, but if they are silent, then the words would fly.  

Only excuse I heard was that management wanted it that way.

Wish I knew Vortex would have been leaving sooner or I would have gone to the park this year before Haunt.

Orion is going to be cool I bet, just going to feel bittersweet with Vortex leaving.

Viva Vortex!

The park probably should have cleaned off the DB camera while they were moving the Banshee cam to view Orion.  DB cam is nearly un-view-able.

Agreed.  I do do Haunt...too crowded and just not into it.  But would have made another trip prior had I know it was leaving.  There is absolutely no good reason to not announce that sooner...really screwed up here IMHO.

Did you ever hear anything? It is the same way today. We just left and the open parking is nearly at Max, an the way to Soak City exit. Seems ridiculous!

No, but if it makes you feel any better they shut down access to CP an hour or so ago.  Kind of glad we just never seem to have the time to a park in October anymore.  The season just gets shorter and shorter for me.  :(

My guess is that they are doing this so that the masses of people who come for haunt (and tend to stay until close) will be parked closer together vs having what are typically more rowdy guests walking to the dark edges of the Soak City parking lot.

 

The implication is that those who come early for haunt get worse parking spots than those who come later... Which seems ridiculous.

That's what I was thinking. We got there early so we got a good spot but I could not imagine waking that far... But today was our 30th visit of the year so perspectives are different for everyone.

I've never seen a mime here before. Really cool addition. Was thinking they could have a character/actor in Rivertown, too.

^Rivertown needs a character acting like Quint from JAWS. "That Beast will swallow you whole!"

They should just turn it in a Haunt attraction. "The Old, Abandoned Coke Freestyle."

I got back from a great day at the park. Rode a bunch including Bat (twice), Delirium and Invertigo (which was a great way to end my day! :D) and did the HalloTween versions of Chaos, Shipwrecked and Blackout. I also saw/ran into a few friends today, so that was cool. The Orion construction looks great in person and I can't wait to see how the coaster will look when it's done (specifically, I can't wait to see the completed version from the Eiffel Tower next season). Finally, I did ride Vortex. I sat in 5-2 and it wasn't a pleasant ride experience. I'll probably give it one last shot on its last day (hopefully in the back), but as for now, I can see why it's leaving. I will say that it is a beautiful coaster, which I noticed both from the ground and atop the Eiffel Tower, and I will miss that aspect as there will now be a huge hole where it once stood.

To everyone who has gone to Kings Island, I know that we are strict on the rules, but they are for your saftey and everyones safety. We don't make the rules, we just enforce them. If we don't enforce them we get yelled at. We are there so that you can have fun. So just listen to the staff and have a good time. Nobody wants security to be called, so don't tempt us or we will.  READ the signs. Single riders will be paired on most rides. So if you go, PLEASE read the signs and follow the rules and everyones life will be better.

You know what the park should do? Besides putting up the Christmas tree at the front gate during Haunt, they should put it up at beginning but turn it into a Witches hat. That couldn't be that hard, right? It would look pretty good and they don't have to worry about putting it up with two weeks of Haunt left.

I'm thinking of going today. Any word on lines? I see DB is closed. That obviously sucks.  Want to go for some last rides on Vortex Beast and Mystic Timbers and would've loved to toss in some DB.  Banshee would get rode too if I can ride The Bat...haven't rode that in the past 6 visits but did ride it once this season.

I've heard it's busy. Which isn't surprising since it rained all day yesterday which also explains why Friday night was slammed.

Not bad at all. DB seems to be down for the day and Invertigo is down as well. Invertigo should open soon, though.

Also, lines aren't as bad as I thought they would be. Crowds are picking up but everything is currently at a 20 minute wait.

I may leave enough alone. I think I had been 3 of the past 4 weeks anyway. I just thought the trees and coaster would be sweet but was hoping it'd be walk-on. Glad business is good though. I still could change my mind I guess.
