Kings Island 2020

Recommended Posts

Hey guys figured its never to early to start talking about next season, besides the construction what are some other thing you think the park might put in or improve for the 2020 season?

 It seems that they are starting to work on polishing the park a bit, putting back some theme elements, and modernizing some things. I look to see this continuing to happen as time goes on. I think outside of our new coaster, we should look to see more polishing, and restoring theme. Frankly, the coaster is a huge dollar investment, so I anticipate any other changes we see to be small investment.

I could see the area around Flight of Fear getting a face lift with pavers, maybe some thematic elements. When I was on WindSeeker looking at construction area there was a concrete path. I’m assuming that was Dinosaurs Alive but the other work I saw was pretty confined to one area.

Kind of seems early to start talking about the next season already when we are just still in June 2019..

Yeah i always like when they do that. I think they need to revamp Adventure a little. I love that ride and so does my daughter.

I could see pretty much the main attention in Coney/Xbase. When you add a large new coaster, it makes sense to do some small stuff too. I think we'll see some new pavers in Xbase and I would love for them to bring back the old Xbase lights that used to be on the fence.

Definitely also expecting some changes in X-base. That area just looks so...blah and strange right now so I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do. I don't know why they took down the arch but I sincerely hope they're planning on replacing it with something because it's just not a great look.

I hope if they do freshen up X-Base's theme that it is not a complete re-theme. I do love the Hangar 18/Area 51 vibe.

Agreed 100%. It just needs more.

Please fix the chasing lights on Vortex. Or put new LED chasers on it.

I'd say chances are high. If you don't do it when you're installing an attraction that costs millions, when are you gonna do it, you know? Obviously I don't know what they're actually going to do, but I do think they'll make that area look nicer. A brand new Giga in that area as it is now would just look weird. On the other hand, I think just the new station and signage for the Giga will do something all on it's own to make the area look better.

This is a great suggestion. Last time I rode that thing later in the evening I noticed those lights were looking reeeeaaal rough.

Yes for sure!! Im super excited. I agree if they dont do it now then when are they going to do it. I have a feeling we will see something after this year for sure!

I'm sure there will be some kind of cosmetic improvements to X-Base and I bet there will some minor improvement that will spark a ginormous amount of speculation.

Hopefully if there is no new big addition for 2022 (50th b-day) we'll get a few flats and severe theming updates....Developing Xbase and expanding Octoberfest into AZ would be my picks.
