KI 2019 Entertainment

Recommended Posts

What new and returning entertainment do you think will be at the park this year (regular season, Haunt and/or Winterfest)?

It appears that the Peanuts Playhouse (formerly known as the Enchanted Theater) is a permanent addition to Planet Snoopy. It also looks the bandstand on International Street will be expanding according to Don's recent blog post on the renovations to International Street.

The two shows I hope are back the most are Blood Drums and "What the Dickens?".

I would like to see another event similar to last year's Peanuts Celebration.

Yes, me too. I hope to see it return.

Will Gravity be back next year?  Unfortunately I missed it this season and would like that to be near the top of my to-do list next season if it will be back.

It would be interesting if they did an event like the Peanuts Celebration but for Coney Mall with all of the recent focus on it. I'm not sure that they would do it this year or not but it would be cool to see in the future

I might be the minority but I would like to see something added to Coney Mall in some form or another. Whether it be a little stage in the Skyline pavilion, a traveling band or Peanuts appearances down the midway, or something of a similar caliber would be a cool addition to the area- especially since that section is going to have a lot of traffic these next few years.

The only thing with the Skyline pavilion is that it's really not good for shows. The Plight Before Christmas suffered from bad sight lines and a lack of seating. 

I'd love to see a show in Coney as well, but I think they'd be better set with a new venue vs retrofitting one.

My predictions:

Gravity returns with a few different acts

Playlist Live returns with new songs

Festhaus gets a new show, let’s guess country 

I’m hoping against the dog show thing in the Showplace, but I think that’s what is coming.

As stated in another thread, Peanuts Celebration will likely return since its currently back at Knott’s.

I hope Showplace actually has a show this year, not a fan of the dog show. 

Hopefully Peanuts Showplace has something.

I am still holding out hope that Kings Island will bring back the Clown Band one of these years.  I have fond memories of that from when I was younger, and the roving street entertainment is part of what makes the park feel magical.

I knew Kings Dominion had a Clown band that was back.  I was unaware that Carowinds also had one.  I know for a few seasons, Kings Island had the Kings Island Five, I think they were called.  But they didn`t have the crazy shananigans that the Clown Band had that made them so much fun.

Forgot about Peanuts Showplace. I think that will host character meet and greets.

I agree with dumping the Dog Show.    It was really nice the year they had Off the Charts  in the international show place. You could actually sit down and watch the performers And the performers had shade!

I would love to see Gravity, Forever Country, and Off the Charts again! Hoping for something other than a dog show at the show place. I would love a show like Luminosity from Cedar Point! I saw it back in 2016 and the energy was amazing

I don't get the popularity of the music shows.  Full bands are awesome, just not the singing.  Gravity or any other talent show?  Awesome.  Seeing teenagers karaoke Garth Brooks?  No thanks.  Oh well, to each his own.

The Lineup looks good this year. Good to see they are utilizing the "new" Peanuts Showplace for Space Beagle. Also, I'll probably check out that country show at least once because it's about the 90's; wonder if it'll feature a live band like last year. Totally 80's sounds like the other 80's shows they've had in the past. Finally, Gravity (Gravity, Gravity) is back. I wonder if the storyline will be different this year

Spoiler

as Phil finally got the girl on the last day last year

and/or if we'll see any new acts.

Almost certainly the format of the show will not change but some acts will be reworked or replaced - like in past years.

The real question is whether this will be the last year of cirque or if they’re going to shoot for years 7 and 8.

My only personal disappointment is that cirque show would have changed. While Gravity was an awesome show a new story line to keep us engagaed would have be awesome.

Will this be Gravity's 3rd season, or just its second?  I have lost track. Weren't the other Cirque shows in the past around for 2 seasons before being changed?

I would love to see a stage installed where Killmart is located with and outdoor show.

I like that idea, have big band music being played live. That would really fit in Coney Mall.

I'd take the classic rock they were blasting through Coney Mall on the final day before Winterfest.  Like Racer radio on steroids.

I'm personally really excited for Gravity. I loved escaping into space last year and I can't wait to see what new acts will be coming and what old acts will be coming back. I'm hoping to see some new types of aliens! it seemed like every color had their own treats (ex: the blues had a lot of water like movements). A girl astronaut would be rad!
