2019 Kings Island Bucket List

Recommended Posts

Last year, I started a thread for the 2018 Season for bucket list items to do a the park....I've added the list to this post for an example and will post a bucket list for 2019 a little bit later today.

Feel free to post your 2019 Bucket List. Update as you complete things and/or add more if you find something else you want to do.

Here was my 2018 Bucket List in no particular order:
 

  • Night Ride on Firehawk
  • Ride The Bat at night (I've ridden at dusk, but I've not done a true night ride)
  • Ride Congo Falls
  • Ride Race For Your Life Charlie Brown
  • Ride White Water Canyon
  • Play more arcade games
  • Play at least one midway game
  • Ride Slingshot
  • Ride Xtreme Skyflyer
  • See Off The Charts (Didn't see it in the past)
  • See Jump! The Ultimate Dog Show (mainly to see a show in the International Showplace Theatre, haven't done that in a long long time)
  • Get FunPix picture taken at the front of the park with a stranger and/or an entire family.
  • Watch the fireworks from the Eiffel Tower
  • Watch the fireworks from International Street
  • Have a fireworks ride on WindSeeker (Had one at the first Coasterstock and it was a blast!) 
  • Ride Boo Blasters and don't attempt to get any points
  • Visit Soak City more
  • Ride Woodstock Whirlybirds (because why not?)
  • Spend a bit of time in the evening before park close on International Street
  • Eat at Subway with my dining plan (because Subway is expensive outside of the park)
  • Sample all of the fudge flavors at Sweet Spot --- partially completed!
  • Try all of the cotton candy flavors at Sweet Spot
  • Spend a day at the park with my phone in the locker or car
  • Feed the fish in the Oktoberfest Pond
  • Meet at least 15 people from KIC that I don't already know
  • Split a big funnel cake with toppings with friends
  • Get a picture with each of the Peanuts costumed characters (those of you on here who are character escorts, make this happen please ) -- Almost completed! 

So again, what's your 2019 Bucket List?

  • Night ride on most of the major rollercoasters 
  • Go to the water park for once and ride the drop slides 
  • Do one of the paid attractions

 That’s about it, not as creative as you, I can’t wait for this season to kick off!

Rage all the 48' rides with my son who just grew that tall over the winter.

Get to the waterpark early enough one day to actually enjoy the it-as opposed to enjoy the crowds, concrete, and understaffed slides

These 2018 goals have carried over to 2019:

- Reach 700 rides on Vortex #MaybeMay3

- Possibly reach 200 flights on WindSeeker? (I'm at 151 and the most I've ridden in one season is 39)

- Visit Soak City more than once

New for 2019 goals:

- Dance to the newly refurbished Glockenspiel at least once

- Reach 800 rides on Vortex

- Reach 900 rides on Vortex (my goal for this season)

- Ride in every seat in every train on Vortex (doesn't have to be within the same day)

- Keep beating my single day ride record on Vortex (32 as of 10/21/2018)

- Ride Vortex 200 times or more in the same season

- Make at least one attempt to beat the overall single day ride record on Vortex (66). Call me crazy, but I really want to go for it. I'm ready for another stiff neck (my side effect from riding it 32 times :lol:).

- Marathon Diamondback on or around August 14 (which this year is the ten-year anniversary of my first ride on Diamondback on August 14, 2009).

- Get trained at all four Arrow rides in the park (Vortex, Express, Bat and Flume) in the same season. Vortex is my home ride so obviously I'm trained there from the start; I got trained at Bat in 2017 (but not 2018) and Express and Flume in 2018.

- Get trained to drive a coaster other than Vortex.

- Pick up at least one shift in Park Services during the summer, to help out my friends there!

That's all I have for now.

...and get burnt to a crisp. Not sure why but that sounds fun to me 

I know/hope you’re kidding...be careful, I got so burnt 2 years ago that I was worried that I had done myself permanent damage. (I could have filled a pop/soda can with the pus that bubbled all over my body...it was scary.)

One thing I've always wanted to do is set off all the WWC paid sprayers in sequence and make them all hit a single boat.

And then, set them all off simultaneously just to see how that'd look.    

I had this same idea last year but never did it.
